Premier Sound Services of Baton Rouge, Louisiana recently provided the sound reinforcement system for a Lionel Richie concert as part of the Our Lady of the Lake Foundation's 25th anniversary benefit gala. The system featured a variety of audio products from Harman Professional, including a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console at the front-of-house position.
PSS provided a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console, which the company purchased in late 2009. PSS utilised an expansion card to bring the Vi6 to 96 inputs. Russ Bryant, co-owner (with Brian Gordon) of PSS said that they bought the Vi6 because of its analogue feel and the built-in Lexicon effects are superior to the effects in other digital consoles.
The main PA system included 12 JBL VERTEC midsize line array elements per side, eight VT4887 compact line array elements per side for out fill, with six VT4886 subcompact line array elements as front fill, with two arrays of four VT4886 loudspeakers with two VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers each for side fills. Crown I-Tech 8000 amplifiers powered the VT4888 and VT4887 line arrays, while I-Tech HD amplifiers powered the VT4886 loudspeakers.
With a growing business and an increasingly diverse array of projects, PSS also recently purchased a set of 48-channel Soundcraft Si2 consoles, largely on the strength of its success with the Vi6 digital consoles. Bryant commented that the Vi6 digital consoles are ideal for just about any event, and they've used it for rock shows, festivals, conventions, and more.
Vi6 digital consoles are available from Jands .
