FixIt: Luke Bryan Monitor Engineer Ed Janiszewski

Aug 1, 2011

I have one musician who requests changes more frequently than the rest of the band. In the past, it meant flipping to his mix to make the changes. On the [DiGiCo] SD8, I have one of the three sets of assignable rotary encoders assigned to his mix, which means it’s always accessible without flipping banks or hitting a button, and I still have the other two sets of encoders for other purposes. Also, having two talkbacks is really helpful. I have one assigned to the crew mixes and one for the musicians...

FixIt: Neon Trees Monitor Engineer Mike Bangs

Jul 1, 2011

We are sharing preamps between monitors and FOH and doing a digital split from the monitor console’s [Allen & Heath] iDR-32, so our FOH snake is just one Cat-5 cable. The second iDR-32 MixRack is currently being used for the FOH console’s DSP. That will change when we start headlining on our next tour. We will go with more stereo instruments for Neon Trees, and we will use the second iDR-32 to handle support band inputs without having to unpatch anything. Since the iDR-32 is basically the brains of the console, it’s all I need for a fly date. ...

Ribbons on the Road

Jul 1, 2011, By Steve La Cerra

Ask an engineer if they’ve used a ribbon microphone in a live setting, and you’re likely to get a reaction that goes something like “Are you out of your mind? ! ?” Old school. “Too delicate!” Hogwash. “Figure-8 patterns are impossible to deal with on a stage with loud instruments!” Poppycock. “Phantom power will blow it up!” Um, maybe if your cables aren’t up to spec. It was only a matter of time until the studio ribbon revival that started in the late 1990s would reach the stage. But is it really possible to use ribbons on a tour? Can they survive? Is their meek output level a problem? Read on. ...
