John Coretto from WHB Concert Production tuning the new system. He took that laptop all over the orchestra and balcony to make sure the sound is perfect in every seat at The Larcom Theatre!
Our new digidesign SC-48 console
See how the Meyer 600-HP sub-woofers disappear next to the stairs. Still good seats left in the Balcony where this picture was taken. Get them here!
Since we discovered the Larcom Theatre and produced our first concert there a year ago this weekend, Gloucester’s singer/ songwriter / multi-instrumentalist and ace sound man, Will Hunt has brought in his gear and, together with Bradley Royds, they’ve mixed our shows to wide acclaim (see a review here).
But Will’s kinda busy and needs his gear for other concerts, like The Nines @ Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse and The Toasters Concert Cruise. So we realized it was time to get new gear appropriate for the 550 seat theatre that we don’t have to keep moving in and out.
And we figured, if we’re going do it, we might as well do it right.
On Wednesday, Jon Coretto and his crew from WHB Concert Production (the people who revamped the sound at Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom) installed the top of the line: Meyer M’elodie curvilinear array loudspeakers with 600-HP sub-woofers and Galileo system processor, Digidesign SC-48 console and 6 JBL VP 7212 MDP stage monitors.
Plus we have a 56 channel snake splitter for bands that want to make studio quality live recordings or simply MUST have their monitors mixed on stage.
Now if you don’t much care about all that techno-babble, just know this: IT SOUNDS AMAZING!
And you can hear it tomorrow night when Gracie Curran takes the stage with Roomful of Blues Horns and Lydia Warren Band opening.
Seats are still available. The best ones are in the balcony. Get them here.
Say “Hi” to Will, who will be working there tomorrow along with Bill Winn (who wrote the book on sound … literally).
Feel free to thank them for the excellent job they do making sure the sound is perfect in every seat!
