MUSE using Tube-Tech live
Participating in a concert with UK top band MUSE is always a real treat. Engineer Marc Carolan has been in charge of FOH for MUSE for more than ten years.
In 2013 the sound production sets itself apart from the majority of touring acts by being close to 100% analog. All the major channels from the band itself passes through the classic MIDAS XL4 analog console. (Sequenced tracks pass through the MIDAS Pro2 for scene recall )
Tons of High quality outboard assist the XL4 in making this production truly outstanding. We are proud that TUBE-TECH plays an important role in the production of this State of the Art show:
Two TUBE-TECH LCA2B compressors handle bass and guitars and a TUBE-TECH SMC2B has recently been added to the setup.
Marc Carolan is currently experimenting with using the SMC2B for more smoothness in the high mid register when playing in venues where the acoustics ads too much harshness to the sound. He's looking forward to using the SMC2B even more creatively when the world tour hits the outdoor venues in summer 2014.
We were invited to the Los Angeles concert at Staples Center, January 2013. The sound of the show can only be described as VERY Impressive! Extremely full and transparent, yet still very punchy sound with some of the best low end we have heard. It sounds loud but very pleasing and we were surprised to hear that the SPL never exceeded 110 dB.
