    RCF was front and center at the 2016 St. Jude’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon running through the streets of Nashville. Gallatin, Tennessee-based Lonely Dog Productions got the runners off providing sound reinforcement at the beginning leg of the marathon.

    R&B diva Mariah Carey recently packed “A-level” arenas across Europe with a Meyer Sound LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system.

Mixed by front of house engineer Lorin White Jr., the 22-city “Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour” was Carey’s first European tour in 13 years. “The LEO system is superb for handling Mariah’s voice, particularly when I’m tracking her extended high notes,”… View this post
