Sasha: Jimmy, tell us a bit about the sound and brightness of the venue.
Jimmy: This is a multi-format venue that delivers fantastic performances from dance parties to hip hop mcs to make funk, soul, jazz and electronic performances. The stage has a triple back send by the front of the big house (FOH). There are some wicked vocal boxes that are on the stage.
The main club system is unique and airplane. The passive three-way QMX mid / large boxes are located directly at the front of the stage and there are four double 15 "sockets under the stage for middle high boxes where at this point the DBX system processor handles the crossover to experiment with analog components, URE filter networks and old, stylish, soft and warm stereo compression with the 1970s URE replica Rane rotating DJ mixer, the mid-budget Soundcraft Ghost was chosen with beautiful preamplifiers and versatility
The main mix is taken by a few BSS 31 tracks DJ features a pair of Technics turntables, Pioneer CDJ1000 and DJM800 mixers The lighting is an American DJ Triphase, four Lightmotion LED Parcans and a Lightmotion Sputnik moving head, while special occasions include Antari smoke and Lightmotion bubbles on the machine.
