In addition to MLA Compact, the sound system includes a Yamaha PM5D for Front of House and an Aviom monitoring system that includes wireless in-ear systems.
Summing up with reactions to MLA, Arnold explains, “The people in charge aren’t really audio experts and for them to really hear the difference and be aware of how MLA represents such a significant upgrade makes it a totally worthwhile investment for them. They walked into the room with MLA and it was a ‘light switch turning on’ kind of change. It made everyone feel good about doing the project."
Arnold concludes, “One of the funniest reactions we had was from the band members who kept asking us if the PA was on because they were so used to the noise from the previous system down on the stage below.”
