Medway council have notoriously bad sound problems so Matt Peacock, the organiser of the ME1 festival, approached Old Barn Audio to supply a Martin Audio MLA Compact System 32 to ensure sound limits were adhered to.
The strict guidelines for 72db at the nearest houses were achieved easily by Martin Audio’s flagship MLA software also achieving 102db at Front of House mix position and 110db at Front of Stage – limits never achieved by other sound systems.
The organisers were thrilled with the results as it proves that the heavier genre of music can be had at Rochester Castle.
With the help of Andy Davies, Martin Audio’s touring technical support specialist, an MLA Compact System 32 was deployed having a hang of 10 MLA Compact per side and supported by 12 Martin Audio DSX subs per side. The whole system, was rigged and running within 2 hours – again, another strength of the MLA infrastructure.
