Meyer Sound’s Bob McCarthy (director of system optimization) and Josh Dorn-Fehrmann (senior technical support specialist) join the show in Episode 165 for a wide-ranging conversation, including their work in designing the in-the-round stadium system for Ed Sheeran’s + – = ÷ x (“Mathematics”) Tour and detailing the unique challenges proposed by the rigging and infrastructure. This episode is sponsored by Audix, Allen & Heath and RCF.
Josh and Bob also talk about the evolution of networked audio protocols, share their journeys through the industry, and offer advice for newcomers, and Bob candidly reflects on his pioneering work, the pursuit of knowledge, and imposter syndrome. And, Bob shares what he learned when designing a system utilizing new Meyer Sound PANTHER line arrays.
