Jersey PA company, Stage 2 Productions, used Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing systems for a majority of events during the company’s busy summer season and has decided to increase its iLive stock.
Stage 2 deployed iLive systems to events including monitor duties for Russell Watson, FOH and monitors for Leslie Garrett, FOH and monitors for Alfie Boe, and several dates managing FOH for a Motown show. The company also manages the entire production of annual Jersey festival, Grassroots, where it used iLive systems exclusively throughout the site, comprising iDR10, iDR-48 and iDR-32 MixRacks with iLive-176, iLive-T112 and iLive-R72 Control Surfaces. Artists included Arrested Development, Easy Star All-stars, Ben Howard and Seasick Steve.
Once again iLive performed faultlessly and guest engineers very quickly got to grips with the logical and intuitive iLive operating system. The iPad app and laptop control via iLive editor on our Macs adds to the system’s overall flexibility,” explains Stage 2 MD, Rob Richie. “I’ve been involved in concert and festival sound for longer than I care to remember. I don’t know of another mixing system that performs so well, is so flexible yet still intuitive, and can be learnt so easily. I really like the whole iLive approach to digital mixing both in terms of the surface layout, and the fact that it is one system with many components that can be interchanged depending on the requirements. Swapping to a larger format iLive from a smaller member of the family needs no additional learning or understanding.”
Stage 2 will be specifying iLive at forthcoming events including Jersey Live, Alfie Boe, and FOH and monitors for a production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’.
“I will definitely be increasing our iLive stock in the near future,” Richie concludes.
