The International ‘Jazzwoche’ Burghausen has an enviable place in the international jazz calendar – since 1970, it has attracted the the biggest names to perform live in a small town in Bavaria. This year, the five-day festival opened with a concert by Chick Corea and Gary Burton, following previous appearances from Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz and Count Basie.

The Jazzwoche (Jazz Week) event was recorded and broadcasted live by Bayerischer Rundfunk, the Bavarian branch of the German public TV and Radio network ARD. And – for the seventh successive year– professional audio technology by Stagetec was used for all audio networking and mixing in the hall and on the OB trucks.

The Burghausen Wackerhalle festival auditorium called on the same audio infrastructure as it has in recent years, including a Stagetec Aurus console with 48 channel strips and more than 300 true audio channels for the FOH-mix. A Stagetec Triagon console was located near the main stage for monitors, and both consoles connected by a Stagetec Nexus audio network. This not only connected all inputs and outputs, but also provided audio signal processing.

In order to reduce outboard equipment at the FOH position and to minimise the need for A/D and D/A conversion, the internal Nexus DSP equalised all signals for the sound reinforcement system. In addition, all Nexus base devices were populated with XMic+ analogue microphone input boards, featuring the XMic+ microphone split function. It provides up to four independent outputs per microphone input allowing sound engineers to adjust their gain individually.

Two OB trucks by Bayerischer Rundfunk received discrete signals to mix their own broadcast mix. The FÜ2 TV truck and HF Ü3 radio truck are equipped with Cantus desks and Nexus base devices from Stagetec. They connect via Madi to the Nexus in the Wackerhalle in order to allow the audio networks to be configured independently from each other. The event was broadcasted and recorded in both stereo and 5.1. on the Cantus desks, which after all are ten (FÜ 2) and seven (HF Ü3) years old.

‘Compatibility is the big advantage of our equipment at the Jazzwoche’, says Felix Binder, one of three MediaGroup sound engineers supporting the festival. ‘That’s true for the Cantus OB trucks, which are still compatible with our newest technology. And although we had different desks on site than last year, we were able to use the configurationa as the hardware configuration is the same. We load our project files, adjust it and are good to go within less than four hours.’
