Professional Sound - October 2017 - Page 36

d&b audiotechnik Yi12 & Yi8 array on main island stage St-Laurent points out, as the arrays at both stages are mostly shielded by their roofs, “but with the winds we can get here, the water can definitely find its way to them – and that’s on top of the salty sea air that surrounds us.” Pays de la Sagouine’s technical team also acquired a new Sound- craft Vi1 digital console to share between the two stages. As St-Lau- rent explains, they needed a desk with at least 40 inputs and, most importantly, local I/O, as they would be using their existing analog snake for the foreseeable future, even though plans are in place to eventually switch to digital. “I wanted some nice, high-end preamps to go with these nice new high-end loudspeakers,” St-Laurent adds about what steered him towards the Vi1 specifically. Many of the performances happening between the two island stages and in the restaurant feature actors using wireless units. As of now, Pays de la Sagouine’s inventory includes 14 Shure UHF-R receiv- ers with 14 accompanying UR1 bodypack transmitters. Among the mic options are eight Shure Beta 58 UR2s, Beta 53 headworn micro- phones, and some Sennheiser MKE2 lav mics with TA4F connectors. In part, it was the dynamic musical theatre-style performances and subsequent use of wireless mics on the restaurant stage that informed its new audio package. Outside of some inconsistencies in coverage across the indoor venue, there were ongoing issues with onstage bleed from the mains. St-Laurent explained to Vey and Cormier that he was using up to a dozen headset mics and thus required minimal PA sound on stage to avoid drastic frequency cuts in his mixes. “Basically, he wanted the most natural sound possible [from the performers],” Vey explains.
