Meyer Sound is providing Troika Entertainment’s touring production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with self-powered loudspeakers and, at the FOH position, an LCS Audio Matrix3 audio show control system with a CueConsole control surface. The system was specified by Duncan Robert Edwards, the show’s sound designer, and supplied by Specialized Audio-Video Inc. of Clifton Park, N.Y., with logistical coordination by Mark Norfolk and Mike Weirich.
The loudspeaker configuration has twin front towers each with (top to bottom) three CQ-2 narrow coverage main loudspeakers, one CQ-1 wide coverage cabinet, a UPJ-1P compact VariO loudspeaker and a USW-1P compact subwoofer.
Edwards was primarily responsible for configuring the Matrix3 package, programming the cues, and integrating mixing and processing with the Meyer Sound system. The Matrix3 handles processing for the 112 inputs and 40-plus outputs, supplemented only by a TC Electronic R6000 reverb and a Waves Maxx BCL for bass enhancement.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat stars Patrick Cassidy in the title role and Amy Adams as the narrator. The tour is currently scheduled for stops in 31 cities, concluding on July 30 at the Orpheum Theatre in Omaha, Neb.
