International news highlights from the worlds of live sound, sound recording, broadcasting, postproduction, sound installation, gaming and audiovisual
 

 One-Eyed JacksRag’n’Bone Man producer Mark Crew and long-time collaborator Dan Smith are co-owners of One-Eyed Jacks, the South London studio they describe as ‘a base for everything we do’. Building on that base, the studio is now home to an Audient ASP8024 Heritage Edition console.

‘A big reason for building the studio was to be able to do everything in-house and not need to use other studios to record drums or strings,’ he says. ‘For this reason, we included a fairly large live room rather than lots of smaller production rooms. It’s also one of the reasons we built the control room around the Heritage desk. When running larger recording sessions for strings or full bands, it’s just so much better with a traditional mixing desk.

The Gashouder with LR18 line array cluster

Combining a festival and conference, the annual The Next Web (TNW) sports the tag line ‘innovation through inspiration’, and is one of the largest and most influential European new technology gatherings.

The event has grown from around 200 attendees to more than 15,000 in its 13 years, with the 2018 edition backed by major brands and held in Amsterdam’s Westerpark. Jurjen ‘Jur’ Hesseling – founder of Badhoevedorp-based full-service technical production company, JUR (formerly Jurlights) – has provided the production infrastructure for the event since it began.

Audient mixing at Jolokia Run by owner and sound engineer Dany Maatouk with his girlfriend Katia Pereira de Almeida, Paris’ Jolokia Studio was founded in 2014. Recently, Maatouk installed an Audient ASP4816 hybrid mixing console. Several desks initially considered, but after relatively few weeks of research, Maatouk admits that choosing Audient was ‘an easy decision – I’m sure you’re the only ones offering such quality at this price.

‘It is the only console that offers 16 channel strips with in-line architecture, giving the option to use it as a 40-channel mixing desk,’ he continues. ‘In addition to all that, there is an amazing bus compressor, some very high-quality preamps and a ton of monitoring possibilities. For me, the only console that answered my every need was the ASP4816.’

British Summer Time 2018

Eclipsing both Rock in Rio and the Glastonbury Festival, the recent British Summer Time (BST) saw the largest deployment of Martin Audio’s MLA sound reinforcement system at a festival anywhere in the world.

Now enjoying its sixth year at Hyde Park, AEG Live’s Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time has settled with sound reinforcement partner Capital Sound in its use of MLA site-wide. For many, the highlight of this year’s event was the opening day and Roger Waters’ Us + Them tour and its use of an extensive surround-sound addidtion to the massive main reinforcement system.

Roskilde Festival 2018

Marking the first year of its partnership with Meyer Sound, Denmark’s Roskilde Festival 2018 combines large-scale festival sound with education and training programmes, scientific R&D. An audience of more than 130,000 witnessed eight days of music from 184 artists, including Orange and Arena stage headliners Bruno Mars, Eminem, Gorillaz, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne and Khalid. All stages were served by Meyer Sound systems.

Roskilde Festival and Meyer Sound led extensive training sessions over the months prior to the festival as part of a technical education initiative. The education programme is one of the many initiatives of the partnership that appealed to Meyer Sound in collaborating with the festival that has stayed true to its non-profit roots.
