German hip-hop group Fanta 4 recently reprised their 2000 MTV Unplugged performance at the Balve Cave, with Rastatt-based Audio Broadcast Services (ABS) providing Lawo mixing desks used for the broadcast. The Balve Cave features an entrance portal measuring 11 meters in height 18 meters wide. Inside, the ‘hall’ is nearly 90 meters deep, with space enough for the band, an orchestra and about 900 visitors. At the MTV Unplugged II concert, two Lawo mc²56 consoles were used; a 48-fader version at FOH and 64-fader version (48 plus a 16-fader extender) for monitors, especially configured for 96 Aux channels. “Only when the monitor mix and the sound are good enough so that the musician no longer has to reflect on it can he fully concentrate on the music and perform at his best. To do this for 40 people individually within the shortest possible time requires from the monitor engineer enormous experience and knowhow as well as a fast and intuitively operable technology,” explained ABS project manager Matthias Paha. “During the sound check and the rehearsals, the 40 musicians wanted their personal in-ear mix changed – all at the same time,” continued Paha. “Fortunately, the Lawo console was perfectly capable for this application. During the sound check, I could also supply signals to the OB truck, monitor the recording and switch the tie-lines to and from the FOH without disturbing the work at the monitor in the least.” www.audio-broadcast-services.dewww.lawo.de
