Gino Vannelli is scheduled to perform at the Beverly Hills Saban Theatre on November 8. An extensive Roland V-Mixing System will be deployed to mix and record the live performance to produce a TV special that will air on PBS stations throughout the U.S.
Over his career, vocalist/composer/lyricist Vannelli has sold more than 10 million records worldwide. In recent years, Vannelli has performed piano-vocal concerts and sung with symphony orchestras, big band and pop ensembles.
Produced by Ross Vannelli for COA Productions, the upcoming TV special event will be broadcast as part of PBS fundraising efforts throughout 2014, in conjunction with Gino Vannelli concerts throughout U.S. markets. Ross Vannelli, who has mixed numerous shows and has toured extensively with the V-Mixing System, will be at FOH mixing with a Roland M-480 as well as collaborating with Nick Moon, who will operate two Roland R-1000s recorders to capture the concert.
Matt Greco, the monitor engineer for this event, will use a Roland M-380 Digital Mixing Console along with M-48 personal mixers for the musicians. Audio will be distributed using two S-4000 3208 digital snakes, two S-1608 digital snakes and the S-4000D REAC splitter and distribution unit for the M-48 personal mixers. Splits off of the S-4000D will be sent to two R-1000 Multi-Channel Recorders to capture all of the live audio channels.
Ross Vannelli will mix Gino Vannelli's November 8 concert on a Roland M-480 mixer.
”The V-Mixing System sounds amazing,” says Ross Vannelli. “We have toured all over the world from large to mid-sized performance venues. We always get comments about the sound quality and that can be attributed directly to the V-Mixing System.”
