First the combined crews of the Five Finger Death Punch/Volbeat/Hell Yeah/Nothing More tour on keeping it all together on a tour with four crews and two sound companies. And then a bit on passing along the stuff we only learn by doing.
We had so much fun putting a bunch of line arrays and a hundred or so sound dudes and dudettes in an arena in the desert last year that, what the hell, it got done again this year. Once again hosted by Las Vegas-based HAS Productions and held at the Star of the Desert arena in Primm, this year we have small, mid-sized and large arrays from DAS, Nexo, Outline, RCF and VUE. And this year wedges got added to the mix, Welcome to Shootout At the Speaker Corral v.2

For the holidaze, we turn to our own crew of Audio Wise Men. Erik “E-Rock” Rogers has added teaching to mixing and tells us about it, Robert Scovill has some serious questions about the implications of these releases of raw audio from live shows for certain singers. There is more to this than just a Facebook laugh. It’s serious stuff. Plus road stories from Tim harding, Some tech advice from Robert “Void” Caprio, a story we hope is fiction from Monty Lee Wilkes and a rant as only he can rant it from Larry “Big Daddy” Hall
