For this “Perfetto’ world tour that comprised well over 107 tour dates around the world, the team choosed to utilize uTrack24 on stage.
In a redundant setup the uTrack24 was playing up to 20 channels of audio in addition to 2 channels of redundant SMTP timecode used to synchronize video & light show. MIDI-file playback has been used to automate the patch & scene-changes for setup during the show.
The setup was a sublime combination of pragmatism and technology: Each of the uTrack24 has been fed into an array of Radial SW8 autoswitches, which did automatically switch inputs to player B should one fail. And in order to avoid any potential hassles with digital sync, the uTracks24 have been running completely independent from eachother.
The Front of House engineer said: ‘Reliability is one area where we have been very happy with the Cymatic setup on this tour. Sound quality is another. As FOH engineer I am completely dependent on what comes from the stage. If that is not in the quality I need it, the best mix in the world is not going to repair that. So I am just very happy with sound and audio quality that I am receiving from the uTracks for my FOH mix.”
