The Fredericia Theatre in Denmark implemented a Stagetracker FX system for the European premiere of Disney’s Aladdin: The New Stage Musical. Aladdin was the biggest production ever been staged at the Fredericia. Theatre director Søren Møller turned to Lars Frederiksen from TTA distributor and audio solutions provider, Alfa Audio, to supply both equipment and expertise on all aspects of the sound production. Working with sound designer Tim Andreasen, Frederiksen specified a sound system that included a TTA Stagetracker FX system with QLab show control software to manage all of the sound effects for the show. “I’m using the Stagetracker FX matrix for panning different sound effects in full surround sound, running within QLab,” explained Andreasen. “I’ve got a multi-channel matrix, so I can have up to six different sounds moving around at once. I have some scenes where sounds emanate from the back of the venue and then move forward in real time. In order to create this, all I have to do is simply draw a line in QLab of where I want the sound to go, and that’s it!” “Without Stagetracker FX, it would be a really complicated operation – I’d have to create a surround WAV file, save it, and then transfer it onto a different system in order to manipulate it to create the effect I want. Using Stagetracker FX within QLab I can design the movements in real time and then press ‘save’ when I’m happy with the results. I can create sound effects that fly around the room in no time at all, and the extra spaciousness it adds to the effects sounds wonderful. It’s an extremely powerful tool that I am looking forward to using on other productions.”
