Prefered front of house system is d&b or JBL Vertec, and lots and lots of it. Preferred front of house consoles are Midas XL4, Heritage H3000, XL3 or Soundcraft Series 5. In that order. DEFINITELY NO YAMAHAS & DEFINITELY NO DIGITAL CONSOLES.
There should be graphic equalizers across the system.
I need two (2) good quality reverb units – preferably two (2) x Lexicon PCM91 and a tap delay – preferably a TC2290.
I need eight (8) compressors (six (6) to be inserted over input channels and two to be inserted over a pair of groups).
I’m a big fan of valve compressors, so if you have any please put them in otherwise I would like DBX160s.
Please supply a minidisc recorder that is plugged in and ready to record, and a CD player.
I need to have a talk to stage line and also comms between front of house and monitor world.
When we arrive, if there is either a YAMAHA or DIGITAL CONSOLE of any manufacure located on front of house island, I will chop it into a hundred pieces, and each of those pieces I will chop into a hundred pieces… so that\’s like, er… tenty hundred? Anyway, then I will douse them in petrol and burn them. In accordance with local and national guidelines on the burning of bits of shit mixer, of course.
SO DON’T DO IT. I’m like a big nasty man if I get upset…
On a lighter note –
We will supply all microphones, and vocal mic stands that are easy to throw and hard to break. Please supply all microphone cables inc. 3 x 20metre/50ft cables for the main vocal lines.
