Promoting a newly released album — Save Me, San Francisco — Train contracted with LMG Touring to provide video, audio and lighting support for its North American tour. The full audio control package includes two custom-built touring rigs (for front-of-house engineer Rob Thomas and production manager/monitor engineer Rob Greene) built around Digidesign VENUE Profile consoles. Each mix zone includes integrated mini-computers equipped with Pro Tools, iTunes, Smaart software and system control software.
The monitor system uses L-Acoustics 115XT wedges, dV-SUBs and ARCS with couplers, and takes full advantage of the Digidesign PQ control system. Also in the package are 12 LA48 amps, XTA processing, an LMG Touring TM passive split system (74 pairs), Sennheiser ew300 IEM G2, and an assortment of mics, including Shure UHF-R wireless.
According to Greene, “As a production manager, I love that LMG can provide everything I need to put on a show. As a sound engineer, I love the quality, reliability and packaging of the gear.”
