In October this year, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was held at the Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda. The sound for the television broadcast of the tournament was mixed on Lawo mc² consoles, with V__pro8 units used for video and audio matrixing. This article gives an overview over the event’s broadcast and an insight into the challenges that had to be overcome.
For eleven years now, Gloria, Princess of Thurn and Taxis, hosts the annual music festival in the courtyard of her castle in Regensburg/Germany. And from the start, Tonmeister Carsten Kümmel is responsible for the FOH mix for the festival.
Because of the wide range of acts, but also because of the special demands of the location, being surrounded by walls, the mix of the Schlossfestival is a very special challenge. We had the opportunity to talk to Carsten during the rehearsals for the Rocky Horror Show and ask him how he deals with these challenges. And what tricks he applies to create a very special experience for the visitors.
