I was doing production. We used my digital board and monitors/mics etc but we rented subwoofers and mains (and nice stage). I did sound/lights with friends - one on FOH and I did monitor mixes during the (3) bands. The board is laptop controlled so we both had control as a backup. Another friend helped me with lights during the Floyd set. We had a main light setup on a truss overhead and I had a string of LED PARs along the amp line as blinders. During DSOTM I was triggering all the sound effects etc from the album. Some of them I ripped right from the album (and cut/looped etc so the band couple play over such as the "money" loop).legitimatebeef wrote:What parts did you play?
For "On The Run" I joined in on the performance from the side of stage running the synth sequencer loop on a MicroKORG and doing effects with sweeping filters and getting an analog delay feedback loop effect going. Then on the climax/crash I switched back to the playback from the album which the rest of the other band continued to play over... into "Time" (clocks etc). It came off very well I think. There were two guitarists, two backup vocalists, keyboards, percussion, bass plus my stuff. Pretty full stage. It was all a DIY thing for the singer's wife's birthday bash. Free craft beer, wine, BBQ smoked there onsite all day which was awesome. One of the bands was kind of a wild party Rockabilly group that got all the ladies up on stage dancing like a Van Halen concert or something LOL.
We had 16 channels on the mixer which fed each independently (along with the main mix) separately to laptop over USB, I'm working on the mix and will combine into a video with some GoPro footage.
so I guess technically this post should be moved to the "live music" thread since I didn't touch a guitar...
Doing live sound gig again this Friday at a cool Arts and Draughts event at the museum and the weekend after that also at a daytime Saturday thing at the university.
