On tour with JBL VTX
About a year ago we had a show in Antalya Turkey. The PA was JBL VTX 25. My normal routine is to listen to a couple of tracks from Pink Floyd's The Wall. My Production Manager, Andres Restrepo was at FOH during this time. There was a moment when we both looked at each other with big shit eating grins across our faces. It sounded amazing. Needless to say we listened to most of the album that morning. Later on that day after setup was complete we started to line check. My first input is the vocal. Right away I knew it was going to be good day. More inputs came up and I didn't touch a single channel strip on the console. My show translated perfectly on this rig. Showtime came and 40,000 fans turned up. It was one of those nights when the show starts, the crowd starts screaming, and everything just falls into place. "I truly felt like I was immersed in the music and not in front of it."
Special thanks to Eric Friedlander, Brian Divine and Andy Flint and all the fine folks at JBL and Harman.
