Baton Rouge, LA (May 10, 2010)–Premier Sound Services of Baton Rouge, LA recently used a Soundcraft Vi6 console for a Lionel Richie concert as part of the Our Lady of the Lake Foundation’s 25th anniversary benefit gala.
The system featured a variety of audio products from Harman Professional, including the Soundcraft Vi6 digital console at the front-of-house position. The concert took place at the Baton Rouge River Center and served to raise money for the Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.
For the event, PSS provided a Soundcraft Vi6, which the company purchased in late 2009. PSS utilized an expansion card to bring the Vi6 to 96 inputs. “We bought the Vi6 because of its analog feel and the built-in Lexicon effects are superior to the effects in other digital consoles,” says Russ Bryant, co-owner of PSS. “The expandability to 96 inputs without the need for additional sidecars was a huge benefit and, of course, the sonic quality is amazing.”
The main PA system included 12 JBL VerTec midsize line array elements per side, eight VT4887 compact line array elements per side for out fill, with six VT4886 subcompact line array elements as front fill, with two arrays of four VT4886 loudspeakers with two VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers each for side fills. Crown I-Tech 8000 amplifiers powered the VT4888 and VT4887 line arrays, while I-Tech HD amplifiers powered the VT4886 loudspeakers. In addition, PSS deployed 16 JBL SR712M stage monitors, along with four VT4886 loudspeakers and two VT4883 subwoofers as drum wedges. The system was configured and controlled via Harman’s HiQnet System Architect.
