HAMBURG, GERMANY, JUNE 30, 2011â€”As the members of the German band PhrasenmÃ¤her announced their plans for a 2011 club tour and CD release, sound and event company LR.Audio was busy designing the sound system for the band to take on the road. Hired by PhrasenmÃ¤her to run the show, LR.Audio chose an Aviom Pro64Â® Digital Snake to ensure quality sound for each performance and to eliminate the hassle of interfacing with the fixed gear of each venue at which the band typically plays.
In order to provide a better control of the audio mix, LR.Audio utilizes two Aviom 6416m Mic Input Modules to run audio to the Yamaha LS9 front of house console. The engineer then has the ability to create crisp sound mixes, which are distributed to the venuesâ€™ speaker systems through an Aviom 6416o Output Module. Two 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Cards serve as the I/O to the console and give the engineer control of the 6416m units via m-controlâ„¢ for Yamaha digital consoles.
â€œThe greatest advantage to the band is the systemâ€™s reliability,â€? says LR.Audio Owner and PhrasenmÃ¤her engineer, Lukas Reichenberger, who was already familiar and very impressed with Aviomâ€™s capabilities prior to the tour. â€œFor me, the best part is the improved sound quality and speed of set up. Having the freedom to use our own gear has its perks for all of us.â€?
Since the system runs off a single Cat-5 cable, Reichenberger is able to quickly incorporate his setup with each venueâ€™s speaker system while also reducing the possibility of cable clutter, which could be dangerous in a club setting.
â€œGiven that we are able to use our own Cat-5 cable, we always know that our audio will work,â€? continues Reichenberger. â€œIt is an added advantage that Aviom has such a stable system. Now we never have to rely on the clubâ€™s gear.â€?
Because of all the success he has had with his Aviom gear, Reichenberger plans to use the system for future projects and is considering the purchase of the companyâ€™s renowned Pro16Â® Personal Mixers. LR.Audio was founded in 2008 by Owner and Managing Director, Lukas Reichenberger. The sound and event company provides both rental equipment and mixing/tech management services.
PhrasenmÃ¤her is a three-man band hailing from Hamburg, Germany. Brothers Jannis and Lenne Kaffka play keyboard and bass, respectively, while bandmate Martin Renner performs on drums.
