As part their world tour, The Killers had concerts in some challenging venues but the drive was for night after night consistency, to overcome acoustic hurdles and ensure the band connected to the audience for unforgettable memories.
Toby Donovan, system tech for the tour said of FOH engineer, Kenny Kaiser, “His mix is rock-solid, so we just wanted to translate that into every venue and sound as similar as possible in every seat.
The Killers Tour – The Solution
I've been sitting at like 108dB - I had a peak at 112dB last night [at O2 Arena] so there's tons of power in this thing and I'm barely tickling the green meters.
MLA was used exclusively on the Tour, as it has been since 2012.
It remains the only system on the market to allow multiple sonic goals to be prioritised and optimised accordingly. For example, not only can MLA generate an even sound field over the audience, it can contain it as well — significantly reducing the influence of the room.
Hard Avoid® areas ─ such as behind and below the array, ceilings and balcony edges - can also be programmed in. Vertical coverage can even be fine-tuned electronically in-situ to cope with last-minute changes in rigging height, without having to re-rig.
With incredibly easy-to-use and highly accurate predictive software [DISPLAY] doing all the grunt work with the system, the FOH engineer retains full artistic control and can enjoy mixing the show in the full knowledge that the sound created at the mix position will be heard everywhere throughout the audience.
Such is the confidence that MLA can bring, that significantly less time is spent setting up the system and even less time is spent walking the room.
MLA’s ultimate accolade is its audio perfection. Pristine fidelity, vocal clarity, sonic impact and huge output capability brings the FOH engineer and the audience together in a powerful, involving experience.
The Killers Tour – What they Said
This box really throws - it's insane. You can do any arena, you just put the system up and go.
My main focus is clarity - and I mix tonality second. When we've had some challenges like at Glasgow Hydro or at Brixton academy, using Hard Avoid® just cleaned everything up.
