DJ Advice – How to create a hi-tech live performance setup

Things to think about when you’re going from studio to stage

There’s lots to consider when taking your tunes out live, and it can initially seem daunting. There are so many different ways to approach translating DAW-produced music into a live hardware-based scenario – with or without a computer.

If you are considering changing/tweaking your setup and are going to be taking your music out live, consider both how your gear might work for you in the studio and also in a live capacity, either on its own or with a band. For example, if you can have one set of equipment that works for both studio productions and gigs, you could end up saving yourself a lot of cash; but, on the other hand, you might not want to take your studio kit out live in case it gets damaged.

When choosing a hardware setup that you want to work in the studio but with live gigs also in mind, always choose gear that’s sturdily built, as flimsy kit doesn’t hold up well to the rigours of touring (though on the flipside, it’s usually cheaper to replace). Similarly, don’t skimp on sound quality, and always invest in sturdy flight casing to protect your setup.

Also, think hard about what you need the equipment to do – will you need one central piece/brain such as a drum machine or sequencer flanked by effects, or several pieces of gear MIDI sync’d and dedicated to specific tasks such as basslines, drums, chords, leads etc? Will you be setting your own monitor levels using a desk, or relying on in-house engineers for setting monitor levels?

Make lists of gear you want to use live, draw diagrams of live setup scenarios and routings, and make a budget to stick within (including wiring/looms, stands etc). This all helps you to visualise your setup.

Keep it simple

 

going-live-gear-630-80

Try to keep things as streamlined as possible, as the more complex your setup, the more cabling and stands needed, plus the more time you’ll need to set up the gear. In particular, with festival gigs, soundchecks are usually very short (or non existent!) and you might just get a ‘line check’ to test your gear is working and that the monitor/front of house sound engineers are getting signals from your equipment.

Another important consideration is the weight and portability of your gear. Hardware setups are inherently more weighty than just a laptop and interface, and once your gear is flightcased it can become quite unwieldy. Also, the heavier the gear, the more you’ll get charged if you’re flying about all over the place, so keep this in mind, too.

As much as we all want to stand out on stage with unique and sometimes flashy set-ups, also try to buy gear that most hire places are likely to carry. This way, if your hardware setup is looking too costly to travel with, you can hire the gear abroad (if budget allows) then put your sounds on a USB key or laptop and load them into the hired gear when you get there – then you can travel light.

Finally, once you have established the gear you’ll be taking with you and/or the gear you want to hire, send on a stage plan with a clear list of what you need to the gig promoter so that any specific gear can be sourced if it isn’t readily available. Specify everything in as much detail as possible down to what stands you’ll need, onstage positioning, how many outputs you’ll be needing, and what effects you’ll be using. Also, make sure you specify high-quality monitoring (mono, or preferably stereo) plus high-quality DI boxes.

If you’re planning on playing live, choose your gear carefully.

Apply Now For A One-Way Trip To Mars

Want to live and die on Mars? Mars One has officially begun its worldwide search for astronauts who will fly to Mars in 2023—and never come back.

The first humans on Mars may be reality TV stars. The ultimate goal is to select 24 to 40 candidateswho will travel to Mars in groups of four. Mars One wants to land the first group (two men and two women, ideally from four different continents, says CEO Bas Lansdorp Apply Now For A One-Way Trip To Mars) on the red planet in 2023, with the other groups following one at a time, every two years. Applications close August 31, 2013.

The nonprofit organization plans to televise the final rounds of the search in 2014, which means the first humans on Mars may be reality TV stars. But first, Mars One is asking the public to rate the application videos to help narrow down the selection pool. According to Norbert Kraft, the chief medical officer and head of the astronaut selection program, aspiring Martians should have five qualities: resilience, adaptability, curiosity, empathy, and creativity.

To filter out spam and frivolous entries, Mars One is charging an application fee that varies by country (it’s $38 in the United States). Applicants must create a 30- to 70-second video that explains why they want to go to Mars, and why they’re the best candidate. The pool will be narrowed to 24 to 40 in 2015.

If you’re one of the (uh, lucky?) people chosen for the program, you’ll move to the United States to spend the next seven years as a full-time, salaried employee of Mars One. Nine months of each year will be spent learning dentistry, emergency medicine, general medicine, engineering, biology, mechanics—anything you might need to know on an inhospitable planet with a population of four. The other three months of each year will be spent in a Mars habitat mock-up, complete with a 40-minute communication delay to the outside world and simulated emergencies. The hardest thing they’ll face during the simulation? A broken toilet, Lansdorp says. “That’s when people get out of control.”

It will cost $6 billion to get the first group of four to their new home (the reality show is supposed to fund the mission). The company will use SpaceX spacecraft to send rovers and supplies ahead of the astronauts, and then the SpaceX Falcon Heavy will get the crew to Mars, where they will assemble their habitat and begin growing their own food. Once on the red planet, the crew can do what they want—they won’t be taking orders from Mars One or anyone else back on Earth. “They will make a new civilization,” Kraft says. “They will make their own holidays, their own laws. We need to send mature people, because we won’t be telling them what to do.”

Justin Bieber attacked by a male fan on stage in Dubai.

Justin Bieber has been attacked by a male fan while performing on stage at a concert in Dubai.

The Canadian singer was playing the piano during his song “Believe” when the male fan rushed onto the stage and grabbed the 19-year-old from behind.

The fan also pushed Bieber’s piano off its hinges, making it unplayable for the rest of the concert, UAE paper The National reports.

Bieber’s bodyguards managed to restrain the offender as the pop star walked off the other side of the stage.

Despite the incident the pop star returned to the stage after a three minute break and finished the concert with “Boyfriend” and “Baby”.

Following the show Bieber tweeted: “Dubai. Nothing stops the show.”

The star also performed on Saturday in Dubai and withdrew one of his songs “One Less Lonely Girl” out of respect for the country’s Muslim faith.

He is said to have paused his show in Turkey on Thursday to allow fans to take part in the Muslim call to prayer. But he angered fans after arriving more than two hours late for his first concert at Dubai’s Sevens Stadium.

Thousands of parents and fans booed the singer when he arrived late for a sold-out concert at London’s O2 Arena in March.

Last month the singer was criticised for suggesting that Anne Frank “would have been a Belieber”.
