d&b Y7P lip fills “Massey’s not an easy place to work,” McKendrick admits, “particularly the conduit runs and rack locations and transformer locations, which are all up- stairs, so it wasn’t a brand new, modern building where you could roll in pre- built racks. Virtually everything had to be brought in piece by piece and put into place.” The main d&b J-Series system features left and right arrays with eight J8 and three wider-dispersion J12s per side, plus six V-SUBs flown behind the main hangs. The centre cluster includes eight J12s and three J8s. On the deck are two J12s and two J-SUBs per side. As for the delay system, it includes: six d&b Vi12s as the gallery delay cluster; eight Y7Ps as lip fills; eight E6s under the balcony; six Yi7Ps as proscenium fills; four 10S-Ds as corner fills; four Y97Ps and four E8s on the balcony sides; and a single Yi7P at the main mix position. All of the DSP and tuning is han- dled within the d&b amps – a large complement of 24 d&b 30Ds plus four D80s and two 10Ds; however, the goal was to offer a degree of control and EQ capabilities to visiting engineers without them having to mess with the sophisticated internal tuning. Subse- quently, three Meyer Sound Galileo 616 AES loudspeaker management systems were installed at the front end, offering easier access to basic EQ, zoning, and delay control functions. The venue also incorporated an Optocore fibre optic network for a full digital path from the console to the amplifier outputs. That includes an Op- tocore X6R-FX-8AE/8LI network module for the FOH drive rack, three X6R-FX- 16AE network converter units – one per amp rack – and an `H`1$1<)ݽɬٕѕȸ)Q)ͼՑ)MչɅЁYā)х᥹ѕ)ݡ5-ɥ)͕́݅́ͅ)ȁ́͵ȁд)ɥЁ᥉)́Ёݥ)͕ȁ)̰ͥ)ݽɐ)ѥ̰ȁ́)ѽȁͽ)́ȁѡѕݡЁ́)ѕͥٔѡɕЁ݅ͻeЁ́)ѕ́Ёձٔѕȁ)݅́Y͕ѡЁͥ)啅́ɱȰ5-ɥ́ͅЁ݅́ɔ)ЁȵݥѠ܁)ѡ́ѥɽչݥѠ܁Ʉѥ)QݕɔٕѼ͔Ս)ѡѥ+q5ѥɕ䁥́չمͽɍ)ݱɥt5-ɥ)͡ɕ̰Ʌͥ́Ʌѽˊéəȴ)q'eٔЁٕ䁙܁䁱)ѡЁ܁́ՍЁՑ́5ѥt)MȁMѕ́ͥȁ5ɬI)݅́Mѕéѡɽа)́́ͅѕɝՍѼѡѕ)q%Ё݅́ѡɽ՝ݕѡ՝е)ͥt̸ͅqMՍ)́ɥȵɥٕѡe)ѡȁ͕ͥ́ݡ)ɥ́ݕɔхѥȁ)ͼЁ݅́ɕɅд)݅ɐt)ɕͥͽѡ)ɕЁ́ѡѽɥ)Iԁ́ͅѡɽé)ɅѥЁѡɗéɔɥ)ձѥݥѠѡ̃LѥԴ)ɱ䁅ɽչѡɹ́ͥ+Lѡ́)ȁᅵѡé)Ё́ɔՅɔѼѡٕՔ)ͼ́Ѽѡȁ)ɅЁѡɅ)ȁͥ݅̀ɕ́Ёɽ)ѡɅ̸qMݔձe)ЁѡЁͥѥݡɔ)Ё݅ЁѼЁѡչȴ)Ѡѡ䁅͡Ёѡ)ѡͅɕѥt̸ͅ)QձѥєɕձЁ݅́)ɔЁѼѥа+qͼݔ啐ЁݥѠ卡ѥ)ѕɵٕ́ѥѡ!)гtIԁѕ̸)Q́́䁍ͥɅѥѡЁݥ)ɕ͕ѡɕ٥х鄴)ѥЁIԁ́ͅѡаѡ́ͥ)ɕqѡɕЁͽѥݽɭٕ́ݕ)ѡɽt)!́ѡЁѡ5ȁՐ)ȁЁѕ́ѡ)ͽѥѼٔͥɽѼՕ)̸q]eɔͥ䁙ѡA)ѕݥѠЁɥ̳t)Iԁ̸q%ͽЁ݅́Ѽٔ)еɥЁԁ݅ѼЁѡ)Ѽѡȁ͕̰ͼѡ)ɕЁȁѡлt)ٕѡ́ݽɭݥѠ)́مɽͥѕȁ٥)ѡ=ѽɔݽɬ5ȁMչe) =LqMӊé䁙ȁͽ)Ѽ݅ѡٕՔݥѠA)Ё齹ٕ̳tIԁ̸)!́ѡЁѡѥЁѥ݅)ͥЁѡ՝́ѡ)ѥЁݽɬѼѡɽе)ͥѡ́Ёͥȁѡє)Ʌѥͥ+q ݕ5ѥQɕٽȁm9͠)Ցѕ t՜͕)ѡɔ݅́ЁѥЁѡɕ)ѥͽ݅ɔtIԁ̸ͅq]ձх)Mх́ݼ(̀ȁ(MU (AI=MM%=90M=U9
