Pupils at the Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar, Somerset, enjoyed a superb end-of-week show from dance/rock sensation Chip Kendall and his band. Revolution Audio was contracted to provide live audio and basic lighting services for the event as part of our partnership with Ministry Of Music.
Bringing together a week of school work with students in Academic Years 9-11, the Thursday evening concert was an energy filled sensation of high-octane electronic and live music. Revolution Audio’s HK Projector Front Of House system provided incredibly powerful low end, while also remaining clear and transparent throughout the intended coverage area. In a room with significant natural “slapback”, our HK Tilt Brackets were used to tilt the Mid/High Units down by 10° to focus more. energy on the audience area. All of this added up to a sound described as “incredible” by one of the event organisers.
In a room with large numbers of exit doors, the use of our CAT5 Digital Multicore also impressed the organisers with how easily it could be routed to avoid obstructions and the speed with which it could be setup. All this, in addition to our regular inventory of monitors, microphones and other equipment allowed for a very successful event and an enthusiastic crowd!
As part of our new partnership with UK-wide event services provider Ministry Of Music, Revolution Audio was pleased to provide audio services to the Church Of The Good Shepherd in Woking as part of their new “Saturday Series” events.
These monthly events aim at making their worship more accessible, and bring in guest bands and speakers. This month the Bean Baker Band provided excellent music and Revolution Audio was selected as the preferred supplier of PA.
Using our full “A Rig” of HK Projector, we were able to provide a superbly even, warm and full sound throughout the entire intended coverage area, as well as minimising unwanted reflections through the use of our HK Tilt Brackets and tilting the Mid/High Units down by 10˚.
Our Soundcraft Si Compact and associated CAT5 Digital Multicore provided an extremely flexible yet compact mixing solution, with high quality EQ, dynamics and effects helping bring the performance to life with tremendous clarity.
Bean and the band also commented on the excellent quality of their monitor mix, attributable to our QSC K10s and DB Technologies M10-2 speakers. Our investment in the latest generation of active speakers is a testament to the development of integrated system technologies and how more compact enclosures can now team placement flexibility with outstanding sound quality. We also received numerous compliments from church staff on the quality of the FOH system, with the two full stacks of Projector amply filling the space.
The event is now planned to develop into a regular monthly fixture, and we are pleased to be involved with this exciting new event.
