‘Raising Sand’ with Meyer MILO

test 19 August 2008

US/EUROPE: Meyer Sound loudspeakers have been used throughout Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ recent tour. Playing live in support of acclaimed collaborative covers album Raising Sand, Plant and Krauss – accompanied by a sizeable backing band that included producer/guitarist T-Bone Burnett – had Meyer Sound self-powered loudspeakers at the heart of their technical specification. The system was provided by Thunder Audio in the US, with Canegreen supplying equipment for the UK shows.

The touring system included 11 MILO line array loudspeakers and one MILO 120 line array loudspeaker per side, with 16 MICA line array loudspeakers for side hangs and five M1D line array loudspeakers for front-fill. Two 700-HP subwoofers per side handled low end, while a combination of 14 MJF-212A stage monitors, three M’elodie line array loudspeakers and one 600-HP subwoofer per side provided monitoring. System control was handled by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors. The MAPP Online Pro acoustical prediction program was used for system design, while tuning was completed with a SIM 3 audio analyzer.

“The huge advantage with this system has been the compact size,” said production manager Gary Trew. “It’s a great piece of equipment to work with.”

Plant and Krauss resume touring in September for a further nine-show trek, due to conclude in Saratoga, California, on October 5th.
