How to design a live music and speech system for broadcast: X Factor Italy
Date: Thursday 5th October 2017
Time: 3.00 pm to 4.30 GMT
Lecturer: Massimo Faggioni
FOH X Factor Italy
Massimo Faggioni, FOH engineer for the 10th edition of X Factor Italy, explains how the system has been designed and the complexities faced by himself and sound designer Roberto Scioni in setting up in the Linear 4 Ciak Theatre with lasers, videos and Spidercam intervening. In addition they had to deal with issues posed by the weight loading of the loudspeakers and the requirement to maintain an SPL of 94dB(A). In this situation, when mixing a live show for broadcast, the 8-channel Powersoft X8 brought about a great reduction in cableing. It also provided DSP and enabled full control via Armonîa — which was set up in advance — while the virtual amps prepared on Armonîa were then paired with the physical ones.
Please note: This Webinar will be conducted in Italian with English subtitles.
