3DR – Wall of Rock, Lossiemouth, September 2014

3DR hail from Elgin in Moray and are sheer punk pop noise, playing everything from punk classics to… Busted… then metal again? Each to their own, but they definitely pull a crowd. Their drummer is a heavy hitter so the drum group in the mix always gets pulled down early and braced for impact with Klark Teknik compressors over that whole part of the sub mix!

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.
