Alan Phillips Sound Service Asheville Sound Engineering Technician WNC SC TN

Sound System

Based in Asheville North Carolina (Fairview) an entertainment sound system with audio engineer is for hire.  Fees include delivery, load in, setup, sound check, performance, load out.

Intended for clarity, not intense volume, this compact mobile sound system is suited for acoustic music, musical theater, concerts, and festivals, as well as live audio production recording.  For smaller spaces JBL EON612 self powered speakers on tall stands is normally sufficient, while the full system includes two 18″ front loaded sub-woofers and six stage monitors.  For safety reasons there is no sound snake or console in the audience; for it is not always required, nor desired.  Wireless mixing is also preferred where there is a lot of foot traffic; such as during conferences, commencements, weddings, and many concerts.  

The Mackie DL32R is great for this purpose. With full wireless control over all of the mixer functions, sound technicians are given the freedom to mix from anywhere in the venue.  It’s multi-user mixer interface allows individual stage mixes to be controlled by performers through a downloadable App.  With 32 Analog inputs and 14 outputs, the DL32R provides up to ten stage mixes, stereo mains, and stereo subs.  It includes on board equalization, dynamics, output delays, and remote 32 channel multi-track recording with music playback.
