I understand Gian. Dave and Bink have seen the venue and the show. Its a standard Meyer PA, and a standard Bass Rig through a DI. This is a bad designer trying to EQ and brush off a bad comb filter situation and that he has been told by more than one respected engineer and SIM engineer that the PA design was wrong. Yes mine is a rant, but a valid rant that goes along the lines of its not always the engineers fault. The Bass player was horrified to hear his bass in the house on a multitrack playback, and his consideration meant nothing to the designer. People were told it was his design and you will play and mix it as such. AHHH fun in the theatre world I guess.

Steve,
but still you (probably) know very little about the show and the technical needs of the designer...





well I am on staff of the show as a mixer. So I hear it every day, some days twice!!

Sorry for the rant, but this kind of topic recalls me of the bad attitude I call "mother-in-law gossip"... simply useless.


Steve and the crew at that show have their hands full fixing some of the aspects of the design of the show.  Some of it you just look at it and listen to it and say HUH?  Given what they are working with they've done an outstanding job.  This isn't a club or bar level gig, it's a multi million dollar, high profile production show that otherwise has spectatcular production value but initially the audio was at best difficult to work with.  It's going to cost a lot of money to fix proper, but in the meantime hats off to the gang there for doing the best with what they have to work with.  The show I heard Steve mix sounded very good particularly considering some of the obviously wrong choices the initial designer made.
