Season of the Club
So we're in the middle of club touring seasonthe
time when you have to make sure that your rider is just right. What's on
your wish list for a club's sound system? Let us know by e-mailing us at
Here's what David Patterson from Nashville tells us:
Lower the volume! This is not a contest.
2. Balance the frequency response. The only time a bass drum
should kick me in the gut is if I'm playing the thing!
3. Most important: Spend some serious cash on proper
acoustic treatment. You can spend the world on an impressive
sound system, but if the space sucks, the sound sucks.

Monitor engineer Dave Guerin recently road-tested the DiGiCo D5
Version 4 upgrade for The Pogues Christmas tour. Entec Sound and Light
supplied the console, along with the rest of the monitor package (Shure
PSM600 in-ears, APW wedges and d&b C7 sidefills).
[With the upgrade,] now you can easily see the graphic that is
inserted on the selected output and it's immediately available. As soon
as you select the output, the graphic's there. You're listening to the
output, seeing the graphic and can get to it immediately. You can also
be listening to one output, but select a different mix to the one you
are listening to, which means you can adjust the reverb send while
listening to where the reverb is returning to. You couldn't do that
before; you could only see the faders you were listening to at the time.
On "Fairytale of New York," Ella Finer sings the part originally sung by
Kirsty MacColl. Guitarist James Walbourne has a full mix of drums,
accordion, banjo and main vocal, plus his vocal and acoustic. Ella uses
the same wedges but with a totally different mix of just her vocal and a
bit of the main vocal. On an analog desk, there would be lots of buttons
having to be turned off. On the D5, with one fader I can change between
the mix for James and the mix for Ella in the same set of wedges.
