Utilizing a Waves Soundgrid server, Jason Aldean's FOH mix uses nearly 200 fx's. The video goes through the various mixes and sub mixes.

He needs to clean those air filters on the extreme servers....

The new live mix consoles are really, really impressive.

No more huge racks of outboards.... it's all in the box these days and so much more convenient. I didn't watch the entire video, but those digital boards can save settings and scenes making the FOH job much easier.

Good one Charlie. Another important aspect is the amount of power these guys use.


"Today, the arena dates on the tour (way larger for football stadiums, slightly larger for Wrigley Field, Fenway Park) consists of (40) J8s for the main hang, (32) J12s side hang, (16) flown J-Subs, (18) ground J-Subs, (8) Q10 front fills, (74) D12 amplifiers."

D12's are 1200 watts at 4 ohms. shocked

Charlie,

Interesting reading. Thanks for sharing.

It would be interesting to compare with the set up the Beatles used at The Shea Stadium in '65 grin

Thanks for the comments.

90db, my son in law who is a live sound engineer also commented on the massive power needed for the tour. Your link goes really well with the FOH video.

If you made it to near the end of the video, a 'learn more' caption popped up and redirected you to the Soundgrid website. There you learned the two extreme servers retail at $2490 each. $5k for server and redundancy. Like Herb said, I'd keep their vents clean!

Interestingly, when I first visited this site, it listed 4 models varying in price and features from $450 to the extreme at $2490. Today, the $450 model has been dropped from the lineup and only 3 models were listed, starting at $700.

The $450 could have actually worked quite well as a dedicated unit for a home studio running up to 34 effects simultaneously.

In the most technical sense, at a 'live' Jason Aldean concert, we never actually get to hear how Jason really sounds live, only the processed Jason.

I frequent a site for pro sound & light people, some of whom mix the "A" grade acts. It's mindblowing how much gear is used on a major tour these days! I remember the Grateful Dead's first tour, when I got to spend some time with them. They could put their entire system in a 22' U-Haul truck! shocked grin



Regards,

Bob

PG Music News
Article: The History of Play-A-Long (and More)

We came across this JazzTimes article, published today, called The History of Play-A-Long (and More), which highlights how technology has "blown the options for interaction music education wide open" in the last 50 years - and they mention Band-in-a-Box®!

Check it out! Click here to read...

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
