This was a gig that my friend Elliott got from his friend. The venue is very well stocked for lighting (Apart from there front wash that a few lamps need replacing) but the sound is lacking quite a lot so we put in my PA system with 2x EV ZLX12p’s and some EV ZXA1 subs with an X32 rack and X touch mixing it all.
Because both Elliott and I can do each other’s main departments we decided to swap roles for this gig and I did lighting and he did sound. The venue has a PC wing inhouse, but unfortunately, the people there didn’t know the password for the laptop so I had to go round all the fixtures grabbing models and DMX addresses and inputting them into Chamsys on my laptop. To add to this I also added some LED bars across the lighting grid to add some extra lighting effects.
Because the PC wing doesn’t have many executable buttons I used the Chamsys app on my iPad to add some extra buttons to do some more cool things to make my life easier rather than changing pages all the time.
