peeriebryan Posted September 1, 2010 Report Share Posted September 1, 2010 Do you know of Rog then Peeriebryan?I first heard of him through the http://www.speakerplans.com website which he runs. He knows his stuff! And keep us updated with the sound & lighting etc as I'd love to know what's going into Mareel!In the auditorium there a quite a few options with regards to speakers and amps and a lot to consider - cost, reliability, size etc - to ensure 'maximum bang for the buck'. I'm amazed at advances made in PA design over the past decade or so. The rule of thumb used to be that you need a big box to shift a lot of air, as had been the case for many years, but that's not the case any more. Then there's the front of house desk - the new desk will be digital, but there still isn't a clear 'industry standard' manufacturer to emerge, and digital desks are evolving at a terrific pace. Yamaha are, I suppose, the nearest thing to a industry standard, but there are other desks that do certain things better. Mareel's desk will require a wide range of facilities for tasks beyond PA, such as live broadcast, recording, theatre productions etc, so it's a big ask for one desk. So we'll see what PLASA has to offer (I can't make it though ) And to avoid the analogue vs. digital debate, Shetland Arts has a great Allen & Heath desk that can be plumbed in for visiting engineers who still prefer analogue. The studio and multi media suite will be primarily using Pro Tools for audio recording and editing Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
