FE Live Audio were chosen to supply a high performance PA system for MUSE, one of the biggest and best live acts in the world. We opted to go with our advanced d&b V-Series system deployed as 2 main flown arrays – a rare occurrence in a venue where most systems are ground stacked. Low end reinforcement was handled with 16 V-Subs and 4 J-Subs for an all cardioid dispersion. Out fill and front fill consisted of additional V-Series and Y-Series cabinets. The full system was powered with d&b D80
touring racks and optimised with Lake LM44s and a remote tablet allowing for an all digital drive.Renowned MUSE FOH engineer Marc Carolan was delighted with the system;
“Excellent Kit, well deployed and most of all you guys were an absolute pleasure to work with”.
Designing a system for a stadium band in a venue with the history of the Barrowland was a real honour and a great experience all round!
Delighted to rise to the challenge, FE provided a full audio production package for the recent Country to Country festival in Glasgow’s famous Clyde Auditorium – fondly known as ‘The Armadillo’. US country megastars Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Kip Moore and Florida Georgia Line headlined the two day event. FE deployed a huge 64 box d&b V-Series PA system driven via 16 networked d&b D80 amplifiers and featuring lake LM44s at FOH for system control. 2x Avid Profiles, 2x Midas Pro 2, 1x Digico SD8 and 1x Soundcraft Vi6 made up the console inventory available to the artists. A complex radio mic and IEM system, in addition to a full festival mic package and ‘flip flop’ line system, were also supplied for those artists flying in for the show. Great job by everyone involved!
With a briefing for an all d&b PA, we opted to fly 8 d&b V boxes per side, supported on the ground with a Sub array consisting of 16 cardioid V subs. Out fill and front fill was catered for using additional V12 and Y10 cabinets. Everything was powered using d&b’s latest D80 amplifier platform and our custom FE drive racks provided R1 control over OCA, as well as Lake LM44 processing for system optimisation. For control we provided two of our Midas Pro 2 digitial consoles along with a Soundcraft Vi1 and Vi stage rack for supports.
In a huge year for sporting events in Scotland, FE Live Audio were contacted to supply full audio production for the spectators village at the Ryder Cup 2014 in Gleneagles, one of the biggest sporting events on the Golfing Calendar. We kept both the American and European Crowds entertained with our Nexo Alpha system, while artists and presenters were supplied with SSE MB4 wedges for on stage monitoring to compliment IEM’s.
At the event’s conclusion, we were asked to supply audio for the Official Player’s Party, where we opted for a d&b Q rig in keeping with the corporate feel of the event.
Pre-empting a sold out Hyde Park, The Libertines got together for a couple of warm ups at our very own Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom. For these shows, we deployed our Nexo Alpha System, along with a Midas XL4 at FOH. Monitors were on our Soundcraft Vi1, while supports were mixed using our Midas Pro 2.
In May 2014, Radio 1’s Big Weekend came to Glasgow, and FE Live Audio were privileged enough to supply the sound systems for the backstage VIP tents. We deployed a mix of Nexo’s PS15 and PS8 boxes around the area, and supplied a radio microphone package for the opening ceremony of the event, where head of BBC Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper welcomed the distinguished guests to the festival.
We also supplied a touring package for Twin Atlantic, whose set went down a storm on the “In New Music We Trust” Stage.
Once again we provided our Nexo Alpha System for this famous Glasgow venue. Four additional Nexo Alpha S2 Infra subwoofers ground stacked at either side of the stage helped to faithfully reproduce the low end fundamentals of the band’s material. Utilising our Lake processing capabilities to great effect we insured the entire system was time aligned and optimised for the venue. For FOH we provided an Avid Profile complete with a pro tools HD recording rig. A pair of our Soundcraft Vi1 consoles were utilised for Monitors and support acts.
We opted for a d&b V series system consisting of 10 V8 and 2 V12 line array loudspeaker cabinets per side. 4 V Subs per side and 6 J Subs set up as a ground stacked subwoofer array provided the low end reinforcement. 6 Pairs of our MB4 wedge monitors spread across the stage provided help re-enforce the bands personal IEM mixes. 2x Avid Profile consoles were provided for headliners Travis with an additional Soundcraft Vi1 and Midas Pro 2 brought in to handle supports.
The Evening Time’s Critics Choice – Gig of the Year 2013
As the exclusive touring audio provider for Frightened Rabbit we provided full audio production for the bands biggest headline tour to date featuring 11 sold out dates across the UK and Ireland. FOH Engineer Iain Graham opted for an Avid Profile package at FOH including a Pro Tools HD rig to record the shows and for virtual sound check at the next venue. The bands monitor engineer Scott Humphries selected a Midas Pro 2 console to mix the bands complex monitor set up featuring 8 Stereo IEM mixes and 6 d&b M2 wedge monitors. We supplied d&b V series and J series FOH systems to suit the different array venues on the tour including London’s Brixton Academy and the final two homecoming shows of the tour in Glasgows o2 Academy.
