Hi all,

We are going to be running an article about companies getting back to work and would like to feature folks here.

Post a picture of the rig at the gig and tell me the basics like what the gig was, where it was, when it was, anything special you did, etc.  You know, the who, what, when, where, and possibly why about the gig.

Iím loading a truck today for a big wedding event tomorrow and I will post after the gig but feel free to get the ball rolling with all sorts of live gigs like graduations, weddings, concerts, club dates, cousin Larryís Bar Mitzvah, etc

My editor Keith will grab some of the submissions and use them in the next issue of Live Sound Magazine and here on Pro Sound Web so donít post to this thread if you donít want to get famous and have throngs of admirers bothering you until you retire! Hey, arenít you the company that did Larryís Bar Mitzvah? Can I have your autograph?

Thanks in advance and even if you donít post I hope you are all getting back to work.

Craig

I have a few tentative bookings, but with Covid picking up again in the UK, I don't know if they'll be going ahead.

I'm spending this weekend blasting away the dust - running the subwoofers up at 10Hz to make sure the cones are still moving freely, etc etc. So far, there's a 21" sub which has a serious coil scrape. I've had money's worth out of it - it was the "beater" that got sent out for house parties etc (people's eyes always light up when I drag that thing in through the door), but it'd be nice if it still worked. For now, I've rotated it and am hoping it'll pull itself back to centre. Better to find it now than at a gig.

Right now, I'm procrastinating getting all the amp/speaker presets tidied up in Armonia+. After that, I'll set up my desk/amps/router network and make sure the iPads & laptop are still happy with everything.

If the events go ahead, I'll see about posting up some photos. It'd be great to see what the rest of you are up to.

Will we be so famous that we'll be infamous?


Here's mine: May 1 and 2, 2021, recording the Tulsa Opera's concert, Greenwood Overcomes, part of the 100th anniversary commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre. The recording of this concert will be broadcast later this summer nationally on NPR.

Recording to redundant Protools systems, using my Focusrite Red 8Pre with HD Native and Dante Virtual Soundcard. Preamps are: The Red 8Pre, Focusritre Clarett OctaPres, and True Systems Preciion 8. The Focusrite AM2 provides monitoring for the DVS back up recording. Everything was synced to time code for a multi camera video shoot.

This was my first gig with a real live audience since March 10, 2020.

DOH! I forgot that the forum only allows tiny crappy, low res pictures...hang on while I go upload them to my website and relink them here....

Well, I did a wedding gig on Sunday outside at a beautiful golf course here in Reno. The ceremony was held on a grassy area in the Sun and it was so hot I had to put some banjo cloth drapes over my gear to shade it. The venue was great and provided us with an umbrella. We stuck the wireless packs in a cooler with bagged ice to make sure we didnít burn somebody when we clipped a mic on.

Unfortunately the pictures of the speakers at the ceremony and the pics of the system we rented to the DJ had glare but here is a pic of one of my guys, Phil Prunier standing at FOH after we got the system up and running.

Under the cloth are 4 Electro Voice RE3 wireless lavalier systems, and a QSC TouchMix16 powered by an A-Ipower inverter generator. In addition to the wireless we also used SM58s on stands for the singer and interpreter. Speakers for the ceremony were Renkus-Heinz RH62s. The DJ rig was a Mackie DFX12 feeding Alto Truesonic 15Ē on stands and a RE3 handheld plus SM58.

Hope you are all getting back to work

Nice Craig, yes we are getting back to work too.  I will have pics back from a weekend reggae club gig and content I am putting together for the roundtable to get out this week.

Lincoln County Oregon Fair and Music Festival.  4X Srx 815sp over 4 X SRX828sp.  Passive Peavey monitors running on Crown XLS amps with a simple two zone feed from the FOH (Mackie SR24.4 VLZ Pro 24). Lexicon MX200/ Alesis Stereo 24 band graphic equalizer/ Autocom Pro Compressor in the rack. Shure 57's and 58's/Sennheiser 835's and bag full of Digital Reference SM-57 clones for when I have a group like the local drum circle and they show up with 20 people. This is the biggest thing I do all year and it's about 200-300 people at any given time  in the venue beer garden for the fair. The fair passes 10-12k bodies through the gates during the 3 days so the music is heard by many more around the fairgrounds.  I also do a smaller boxes on sticks gig over at the rodeo grounds for the "Dance in the Dirt" in the rodeo arena at the conclusion of the rodeo.    Pro-sumer Peavey 18' subs with 15's on sticks and 12" monitors powered by Crown XLS amps and a 12 channel Soundcraft EFX mixer.
