Two of the biggest bands in the world were on tour and we caught up with both the Coldplay and Radiohead tours to see how they achieve superlative big concert sound.
We also go behind the scenes as Adele and Paul Epworth channel the ghost of Karen Carpenter with their take on a classic Bond theme song for Skyfall. We head overseas to the Behringer factory to see how things have changed in China with Midas consoles and the X32 line goin head to head on the factory floor. And Paul Kelly records Spring & Fall in a country hall. Stav gets surgical and gives a tired vocal performance a facelift.
On review is Avid’s HD Native Thunderbolt adaptor, Line 6 Stagescape with a totally new take on live mixing, Arturia’s V Collection, Pearl DS60 monitors, Pearl DS60 rectangular microphone and SM Pro M Patch version 2, the simple yet effective monitors controller gets better.
Plus Australian audio pioneer, Mark Opitz, joins us for Last Word.
