Cold California – Wall of Rock, Lossiemouth, September 2014
When we had Cold California play through our EatAudio sound system, we didn’t appreciate it was there first gig. Yes, there first gig ever! And we think they did not too bad considering. This young student band from Aberdeen are slowly beginning to make a name for themselves and score gigs from place to place! With more practice they can only keep getting better.
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 5 KW 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.
