The latest issue of Pro Sound News Europe with an all-new editorial team is out today, featuring an exclusive interview with legendary producer Butch Vig.
PSNE editor Dan Gumble spoke to the man who’s produced some of the biggest-selling rock albums to date about his glittering career in the music biz and what the future holds for the role of the rock producer.
Now in its fifth year, Hyde Park’s British Summer Time festival hosted headline acts from Justin Bieber to The Killers in July, and Capital Sound, with partners Martin Audio, has been the award-winning team behind it since 2013. What’s more, Capital has been offered a two-year extension to continue its success until 2019. Dan Gumble spoke to them about where it all went right.
We also report from acclaimed film composer Hans Zimmer’s Wembley Arena date of his world tour. Providing scores for classic films including The Lion King, Gladiator and The Dark Knight Rises, Zimmer’s cinematic live sound requires great skill to master. PSNE’s Simon Duff spoke to FOH engineer Colin Pink about using Brit Row gear with a complex orchestral set-up.
Having launched just two years ago, Allen & Heath’s dLive mixing console is making quite a name for itself on the live circuit. PSNE staff writer Tara Lepore spoke to sound engineers who’ve been using it on festival dates over the summer to find out if it lives up to the hype.
We’ve also got the usual line-up of insightful Q&As from the industry’s finest, from newly-appointed Miloco studio manager Lise Regan about diversity in pro audio, to industry stalwart Toby Alington about the highlights of his career.
There’s all that, plus loads more, in the August issue of PSNE. Read the latest copy on Issuu now – and subscribe to the daily newsletter/print edition to stay up to date with all the latest developments in the pro audio world.
