The mix was awful. I'm hoping it was just my tv and it sounded better in 5.1...
I miss the halftime show with the Boss.

The mix didn't suck any more than the whole concept. Who the fuck thought up those cardboard box heads? It was an embarrassment.

Hey,at least the Autotune sounded halfway decently dialed in.

Flash and Trash, I guess since the music doesn't matter, but only flashy costumes......
Next year we look forward to Lady Gaga........

Back to my nap...

yeah, i'd be curious to know how it sounded from the stadium.

There's a couple times you can hear missing parts (like Fergie) from the house PA back through other open mics, so it might have been better onsite. Looked like some instruments were also mic'd but never heard, at least in the broadcast mix.

I've complained about the TV sound at the SuperBowl half time for years.  Last good one was U2 in 2002.  Tonight's show was absolutely terrible.  There is no excuse, none, for it to be that bad with 4 vocals and a track.  How can you not even turn on a mic?  I know volunteer audio guys at my church that can do a better job, much less, most of the guys around here that do it full time.  I bet Robert Scovill would do it for free if they would just ask.  I know I would.

Maybe the TV mixer forgot that it was going to be live instead of Memorex.  It is unacceptable to not have the mic on when you are in the big chair doing the big time.  I think that it is time for the producers to get a different tv mix guy.

No kidding.  I don't think I have nearly enough experience to do the 'Big Time' Mixing gigs, but man, I really do believe I could do better than that.  I'm pretty humble usually, and am more than willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt, but missing mutes is really unacceptable.

I knew there'd be a thread on this topic as soon as I got back. Everyone in the room was like "Paul, you're needed at the Super Bowl!" as soon as it happened. The room I was in was loud so I couldn't hear the house mix through the other mics, but it seems that there was a very simple setup in regards to mics 'n such.

It was beyond Horrible!!!!

I knew I was going to be in for a bad ride when the show started with a missed mute..... then it was all downhill.

Glad I finally was able to hear the final few notes from Slash, out of his whole part of the show.

Sometimes Will-i-am and Fergie sounded like they were shouting Karaoke at the local pub.


With the budget they are given, and the caliber of engineers out there that have the chops for this, there is NO excuse!
