Milk Interference – Wall of Rock, Lossiemouth, September 2014
Milk Interference are a band from Aberdeen that were put together by their college lecturer – in part so they were able to actually complete their course work, and when it so happened they enjoyed it too much they kept the band together! With catchy numbers like their own Boat Song, and the odd Paramore cover here and there, the lead female talent Cat Ellis really has a voice taking notice of. Not the easiest band in the world to mix with the drummer handling backing vocals… so microphone bleed (even with lots of gating) is an absolute nightmare to pull off! However, they’re well worth a listen if you’ve got the time!
These guys were playing behind a 15KW system at the Wall of Rock festival in Lossiemouth in September 2014, with 10KW of sub bass and 5KW of mid/high speaker cabinets. Front of house desk was a Soundcraft GB8-40, and the monitor desk was a Soundcraft LX7ii-32. Two Allen & Heath ICE-16 recorders were being used. Microphones used were Audix on drums (D6 kick, i5 snare, D4 floor tom, D2 rack toms, ADX51 overheads, f9 hi-hats), Sennheiser EW135 G3 wireless on vocals, and Shure SM57 on instruments. The light show used was the full EatAudio, with over 100 DMX lights being controlled via Windows based software.
