Nottingham based concert PA hire company, Sound of Music Ltd, recently purchased a 40-channel Allen & Heath ML4000 live sound VCA console to update its existing hire equipment.
“The events for which we are providing sound reinforcement are increasingly high profile and high-tech making our original desk rather dated. We needed an innovative console with plenty of AUX sends, dual functionality to handle monitors from FOH if we needed to without compromising on FX sends and superb features like VCA capability for grouping,” comments Sound of Music’s audio engineer, Sash Pochibko.
“When Allen & Heath launched the ‘B’ option offering extra stereo channels for the ML series at the PLASA show last year, the ML4000 was the ideal mixer for our needs. Not only did it fall in our price bracket, it fulfilled our spec requirements. The brand status also complements our stock of Nexo Alpha-e loudspeakers and Camco amplifiers, as well as the ML3000 already on our kit list.”
Recent events where Sound of Music Ltd. has provided sound reinforcement using the ML4000 include, Bjorn Again at the Hilton Hotel in Park Lane, London with the ML4000 FOH and ML3000 on monitors; the live band stage at Warwick University Ball at the Metropole Hotel, Birmingham; Westlife performing at The Powerhouse in Newcastle, where the ML4000 mixed FOH and monitors on stage; and Beenie Man at the Isis, Nottingham.
