Neon Trees mix it in London with iLive
12 October 2012
UK - The US band Neon Trees requested a dual FOH/monitor Allen & Heath iLive digital system for a recent performance at a private function in central London hosted by Universal Music.
Formerly a grand hotel, the venue 8 Northumberland Avenue is now a conference and functions facility. The gig was held in the Billiard Room, and also featured a set by British performer, Ellie Goulding. Sound Hire provided the PA for the event, sub-hiring the FOH/monitor iLive system, comprising two iLive-112 Control Surfaces with an iDR-32 and iDR-48 MixRacks, from the SRD Group.
"iLive was very straight forward to set up. I emailed the show files for SRD to pre-load, and the systems were sent straight to the venue. Neither my FOH nor monitor techs had used iLive before so it was a relief to find it so easy to hook the systems up with just the one Cat 5 cable between rack and surface. In fact, I had to call SRD to make sure that only the one cable was needed," explains Sound Hire's Colin Partridge. "The show went without a hitch and Neon Tree's engineers were happy with the results. iLive's small footprint is a major plus at these shows, where invariably I end up trying to find space for multiple FOH and monitor consoles."
The band has UK concert dates scheduled in 2013, when they will also be using an iLive system.
