    The ancient Roman amphitheatre in Verona was the magnificent setting for Intimissimi on Ice, an evening of music and dance on a vast iced stage, all supported by ArrayProcessing from d&b audiotechnik. Designed in the classical amphitheatre style, the two thousand year old stone structure is elliptical in shape, with the outer walls standing about seventeen meters in height.

    Allen & Heath’s new dLive mixing system appeared at London’s O2 arena recently, with King Charles supporting Mumford & Sons on their UK tour.

    USC Resolution packed Seattle’s WAMU Theatre with fans eager to “ring in the new” with a spectacular line-up of performers supported by Trinity arrays from PK Sound. “The contrast between the artists was exciting,” says front of house engineer Austin Perkins. “DJ Craze used vinyl, and jumps quickly from one track to another. Liquid Stranger’s production has a lot of depth to it, and was extremely immersive thanks to Trinity’s powerful low-mid and crisp high frequency.” Aaron Silverstein, marketing coordinator,… View this post
