Trois Rivieres, Quebec, Canada (October 11, 2006)–Trois Rivieres is the second oldest city in Canada, and as such, it has a history of traditions–one of which is the annual “L’International de l’Art Vocal de Trois-Rivieres” (International Vocal Arts music festival), a 10-day marathon of international sounds featuring many musical styles. The Festival’s main stage this year featured international stars such as Simple Plan, The Stills, The Temptations, Fefe Dobson, Nelly Furtado and Quiet Riot, all of who were heard through Adamson loudspeakers.
Nelly Furtado sashays onstage at the L’International de l’Art Vocal de Trois-Rivieres, where she was heard through an Adamson Y10 loudspeaker rig.Sound for all three outdoor venues was provided by Trois-Rivieres based L’Audi-C, and sound design was done by house chief engineer Daniel Savoie. The main stage featured 32 Adamson Y10s, 16 Adamson SX subs and JBL FRX as front fills, all of which were powered with 24 Lab.gruppen fP6400 and three fP400s. Lake Contour took care of the mains processing.
For stage monitors Savoie chose 18 Adamson 12MX’s, which were powered by 8 Lab.gruppen fP3400 and four fP6400 amplifiers and controlled by dbx. A Soundcraft Five series console was used at the monitoring position, whereas Soundcraft MH4 and 6B8 desks were used at FOH. A half-dozen Adamson SpekTrix placed for delays took two Lab.gruppen fP3400 and one fP6400 to power. The Second Stage featured an all-Adamson SpekTrix Series line-up.
