Touring production specialists Ambion GmbH of Kaufungen, Germany, recently went out on tour with genre-defying ensemble, Symphoniacs. Fusing classical violin, cello and piano with electronic sounds and beats, Symphoniacs is a collective of young virtuosos from around the world, who present a classical-meets-club mixture that is fresh and distinctly different.
"This was a very exciting and demanding production, working with top-class musicians. We had only one trailer so it was essential that we used a system that could provide the flexibility we required in the different venues but was compact enough for our restricted truck-space. In consultation with system-tech Michael Wirth and FOH engineer Ingo Thürauf, we chose the combination of ViRAY and TiRAY, which proved to be a very good decision."
The varying nature of the venues demanded a highly flexible, lightweight sound system that was both powerful and of the highest audio quality.
Ambion GmbH chose a CODA Audio ViRAY system used in combination with a TiRAY fill-system. For optimum flexibility the system was completed with CODA SC2-F, 2 x 15″ flown sensor controlled bass extensions and SCV-F, single 18″ sensor controlled subwoofers. The whole system was driven by LINUS10-C amplifiers, using The LINUS Live platform via LINET for distribution and tuning.
System-tech Michael Wirth agreed:
“We encountered a wide variety of conditions for rigging and audio but the system delivered excellent performance throughout the tour. I am definitely convinced by the merits of the DDP-driver technology – the system was easy to handle and gave me consistent frequency response in every situation.”
