This year I had the pleasure of mixing FOH for Bandpage HQ http://sxsw.bandpage.com/
Bandpage HQ featured three venues linked together; Club 606, a Patio stage and the Empire Garage (where I was mixing foh )
The crews where comprised of Engineers from DBS Sound out of Los Angeles and Miller Pro Audio from Austin Texas
The Audio rig in the main room was three per side Omega Corps V48 over 4 Perside Omega Corps Double 18″ Subwoofers Powered by Crown Itech 9000’s
I was mixing on a Yamaha PM5D at 96khz at Front of House
This was my second year of working showcases at SXSW and my second year bringing my antelope clock. The antelope clock does a fantastic job of stabilizing the digital console when running high channel count groups. The difference between clocked and non clocked audio is extremely noticeable even with an ipod / cd player.
The teams at Bandpage and Heard Entertainment that put the events did a great job of selecting a wide range of artists. …. everything from dance to rock to hip hop.
