Broadcast audio specialists Red TX deployed its Red II outside broadcast truck to record and mix the music of the Cambridge Folk Festival, which took place at the end of July this year. The Proclaimers, Joan Armatrading, June Tabor & Oysterband, Clannad and Seth Lakeman are some of the folk artists who performed at Cherry Hinton Park, which was broadcast live on Sky Arts. Independent UK radio and television production company Smooth Operations commissioned Red TX to handle the broadcast audio. As well as feeding a 5.1 mix of the audio from the main stages to Visions for the Sky Arts broadcast, Red TX also prepared a separate stereo mix for BBC Radio 2. Viv Atkinson, director of Smooth Operations, commented: "I book Red TX because, apart from being consummate professionals with everything you need to do the job, they are technically superb and most importantly brilliantly helpful with an amazing attitude that makes any job with them a pleasure." The Red TX team comprised Ollie Nesham, who was on board Red II, and Ian Dyckhoff and Mike Silverston, who used a de-rig recording set-up to mix and record the acoustic performances in the presentation studio. Ollie Nesham said: “Cambridge is a great festival to be part of and the entire team really pulled together to deliver up to six hours of live music mixes per day.” Following the Cambridge Fook Festival, Red TX returned to London having been commissioned by Live Nation to record the audio for the BT London Live concerts in Hyde Park during the London 2012 Olympics. www.red-tx.com
