Edinburgh Adamson

Live Systems managing director Steve Robb has hailed Adamson’s S10 system as “perfect” following its performance at this year’s Edinburgh Mela show.

The two-week-long 2017 Edinburgh Mela brought this year’s Edinburgh festival season to a close with a celebration of cultural diversity, featuring a sound system designed by Live Systems.

Adamson’s S10 line array loudspeaker system was the chosen for the task, with four S10 and two S119 per side powered by Lab Gruppen PLM20K44 amplifiers running Lake Processing that covered the substantial main audience area.

The FOH console was an Allen & Heath GLD112 console with AR2412 and AR0804 stageboxes. Various microphones from the likes of AKG, Shure and Sennheiser were used across the event, with DIs from BSS and Radial.

Steve Robb, managing director of Live Systems, commented: “Our investment in Adamson comes after many years of looking at a variety of manufacturer’s offerings. In terms of equipment, we have always tried to bring something different to the rental market rather than simply jumping on the same bandwagon as everyone else. In this way, we aim to set ourselves apart from our competition while at the same time giving our customers access to the best quality products. As such, we were keen to wait until we found the right line-array system that would offer a quality that exceeds the other main brands on the market and also offers a strong return on investment, Once we heard Adamson products, in particular the S10 System, we knew this was the right choice for us.

“The Edinburgh Mela is a magnificent display of diverse music so the sound system had to be right. Adamson proved to be perfect for this popular festival.”
