Over the years, the trusty dBx Driverack has been used for the output section of the PA system. This is an awesome piece of equipment, but it comes at a latency cost. This is not necessarily a bit concern, but since we are focusing on old-skool values and putting together an analog system it has been replaced.
The output is now just like we did 20 years ago. An EQ and a cross-over. I’m not satisfied with the BBE on the main output so it will probably be used as an effects loop or on a sub-group. The Driverack will still be used as a sub-harmonic synth and compressor for kick and bass.
Stay tuned for some A:B comparisons between pure analogue and digital in the future.
This show turned out to be a high energy event. Gerard was on fire despite being rather tired from doing so many shows. The hall at Kuranui College was a fantastic venue to work in. As a bonus, we had some fantastic help from some of the students.
We had a lot of fun with the team from Masterton Medical Centre. The staff at Paper Road Winery were fantastic and treated us very well. We managed to transform the venue into an intimate but rockin’ place. I’m sure that Gerard will remember this as one of the better shows as we got all of the little details sorted. A big thanks to the Paper Road staff and Masterton Medical Centre for being such an awesome group of people!
