Asia recording expeditions

Self-styled guerilla ethno-musicologist Greg Simmons has led educational recording expeditions through Nepal, India, Tibet, Thailand, Borneo and Burma since 2004. Now he is planning three further visits in Burma (Myanmar) for audio students, industry pros, musicians and composers. Each 11-day expedition focuses on recording the music of a different culture. The expeditions run end-to-end and can be taken together to form a longer journey.

The educational and affordable expeditions include advanced audio lectures, emphasing mic choice and placement. Recording unfamiliar instruments in unfamiliar settings requires new ways of thinking about recording, and ultimately equips participants with new skills and concepts that can be applied to any recording situation.

Biffy Clyro go with DiGiCo for US tour dates

Embarking on a new US tour, Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro’s FOH engineer Jonny Lucas and monitor engineer Dan Speed will be using DiGiCo SD10 mixing consoles after their success on UK dates. Presently, they have three rigs located at points around the world, with two duplicate systems that include, in some instances, the more compact SD10-24.

Lucas has been working with Biffy Clyro for almost a decade. ‘I did my first show with them supporting The Who at Marlay Park in Dublin in June 2007,’ he recalls. ‘There was no soundcheck and only a 20-minute changeover. It was a baptism of fire.’

Sheeran’s conquering ÷ Tour

Currently on a three-continent, 108-show ÷ Tour, Ed Sheeran hits the stage with his acoustic guitar and a custom loop pedal set-up.

His offstage crew, meanwhile, is headed by production manager and FOH engineer Chris Marsh, who has held both posts since the earliest arena-touring days. Also onboard, at Marsh’s behest and for the fifth consecutive year, is a Meyer Sound Leo Family linear reinforcement system supplied by UK-based Major Tom Ltd.

‘Ed pretty much entrusted production to me since the beginning of our relationship, and one thing that we’ve proven over the past four years is that the Meyer Sound Leo Family is the way forward,’ Marsh says.

Adlib’s high for All Time Low

US punk-pop band All Time Low recently played dates around the UK and Europe as a teaser for their forthcoming album, The Young Renegades. Continuing a long-standing working relationship with the band and engineers Phil Gornell (FOH) and Ricky Fernandez (monitors), Adlib supplied two Midas consoles for the tour, and Adlib’s new Scottish division supplied L-Acoustics racks-and-stacks for gigs at Glasgow Academy and Edinburgh Corn Exchange – together with technician Andy Russell.

‘It’s always good to work with Adlib in any capacity,’ says Gornell. ‘Having the consoles with us throughout the tour gives continuity on the control side across the wide variety of venues on the itinerary, and having the ProX enabled me to get the best out of the different house systems we encountered.’
