    QSC TouchMix liefert Aufnahmen in Studioqualität für Phil Collen von Def Leppard

    Sinsheim (18. September 2019) – In der Fender Factory finden sich sämtliche Produktreihen des legendären Gitarrenherstellers sowie limitierte Auflagen der von verschiedenen Künstlern inspirierten Instrumente. Hier zu arbeiten ist der Traum jedes Gitarren-Freaks, schließlich sind regelmäßig Top-Künstler vor Ort, um sich zu unterhalten, Gitarren zu testen oder ein spontanes Konzert für die Mitarbeiter zu geben. Phil Collen, Gitarrist bei Def Leppard, tat genau dies zusammen mit seiner Band Delta Deep, die klassischen Delta-Blues in einer etwas härteren Gangart spielt - und ging danach mit einer von ihm selbst als „perfekt“ bezeichneten Aufnahme nach Hause. Steph Maffei, IT Support Supervisor bei Fender, berichtet, dass der für die Live-Beschallung genutzte Mischer auch für die Aufnahme zum Einsatz kam: ein TouchMix-16 von QSC. „Ich bin selbst Musiker und habe schon auf…

    QSC TouchMix Captures Studio-Quality Recording of Def Leppard’s Phil Collen

    Costa Mesa, CA (September 3, 2019) [De] – The Fender Factory is where you’ll find the iconic guitar maker’s full line of standard production guitars, as well as, limited edition, artist-inspired instruments. Working there is the ultimate gig for any guitar geek, because top artists regularly drop by to talk shop, try out new axes, and sometimes put on spontaneous concerts for the employees. Recently, Phil Collen of Def Leppard fame did just that with his band Delta Deep—which plays classic delta blues, only harder—and walked away with a recording he described as “perfect.” Fender’s IT Support Supervisor Steph Maffei describes how this was accomplished entirely on the same mixer that was running the live sound: a TouchMix-16 from QSC. “I’m a musician myself and have worked on both sides of the mixing console,” says Maffei. “This all started when Fender gave me about a…

    QSC Brings Big-Time Sound to Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk

    Nashville, TN (August 15, 2019) – With five floors and four stages, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk and Rock ’n’ Roll Steakhouse is the largest and most advanced entertainment venue on Nashville’s always-crowded Broadway. Thanks to a comprehensive audio installation from QSC, the sound from multiple live acts on different floors is audiophile-grade. “The entire venue holds about 2,000 guests, with up to 600 in the main room and mezzanine,” says lead sound engineer Josh Hastick. “During busy seasons, all four stages are going at once, and we host as many as 16 bands, each with a four-hour set, in a business day.” That kind of turnover requires equal measures of flexibility and predictability from a P.A. system, which Hastick says that “QSC delivers in spades.” The stage in their main room is flanked by three KLA12 active line array cabinets per side, complemented by four…

    Dweezil Zappa Chooses QSC as Reference for Classic Guitar Tones

    Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2019) — Dweezil Zappa knows a thing or two about guitar. Steeped in music since early childhood thanks to his father — virtuoso rock guitarist and maverick composer Frank Zappa — Dweezil’s own illustrious career has become the poster for an encyclopedic knowledge of technique, tone, and gear, bolstered by the perfectionism and work ethic that famously runs in the family. From his solo work to his tribute project encompassing his father, Frank Zappa’s Astounding Compositions, to his upcoming tenure on the 2019 Experience Hendrix tour, Dweezil has relied on QSC powered loudspeakers to recreate iconic guitar tones and craft entirely new ones. In his latest stage rigs, these include multiple K12.2 and K10.2 cabinets. “I first discovered QSC close to 11 years ago,” recalls Zappa. “I had started using and the Axe Effects digital modeling devices…
