Glasgow jazz for Roland
By Erica Basnicki
THE SCOTTISH National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) has purchased a Roland M-480 Live Mixing Console and R-1000 48 Track Recorder as well as two S-1608 Digital Snakes for use on their tour across Scotland. Glasgow-based hire company
Small footprint set-up captures big jazz sound
Sono Vie supplied the M-480, R-1000 and S-1608s, which were put to the test at the Music Hall in Aberdeen, the Queens Hall in Edinburgh and the Royal Scottish Conservatoire of Music in Glasgow. Chief engineer for the
SNJO, Mark McKellen, wanted to find a flexible system with a small footprint that was simple to set up, portable and, most importantly, could record the performances. The R-1000 in combination with the M-480 allowed for this, requiring only a Cat5 cable. “Being able to run Cat5 from A to B is just amazing because lugging around metres of multi- core is a nightmare. It’s pretty revolutionary to be able to connect to the mixer so easily,” said McKellen. www.rolandsystemsgroup.co.ukwww.snjo.co.uk
