It has to be said that whilst the load was quite awful (helped very much by a lot of our equipment being on wheels, and the loan of a roll cage by the venue) and the acoustics in the room were somewhat “cavey”, the gig was flipping awesome!
We played two very well crafted sets, very few oopsies (all live, remember, we’re not robots!). (Well I have my doubts about Craig as he never sweats).
The lights looked great, and the laser now combined in with it added a little – although I have my concerns that it’s not quite perfect as occasionally it glitches. I spent a little more time on positioning and using the small DJ strip as footlights worked great. We even flipped them around for the DJ set at the end and lit the dance floor a treat!
The only glitch I’ve noticed is that the cameraman had wireless flashes and they would sometimes cause the back lights to freeze for a fraction of a second.
The Wireless DMX sender kit seems good. The quality is somewhat iffy, but it works for now and I think we’ll be sticking with it.
The stage looked awesome with our new, slightly brighter, standby lighting settings.
