Tech Specs

PA Specification

The first part of this specification is for Bloomfield Avenue when playing in the UK and not required to fly; amendments involving air travel are specified later.

Stage

Bloomfield Avenue require a level stage with a minimum performance area of 5 x 3 metres and at a height suitable to the event and the room, the stage must have suitable access. The stage should be clear of backline, drums and pedal boards from other acts or at least have a performance area as detailed above.

The PA system

The system should be of a suitable size for the event, from a reputable manufacturer such as D & B, Logic System, Turbosound etc, and run in stereo. A system technician should be present during sound check and the show.

Desks

A minimum 16 channel desk is required. The desk must have at least two swept mids per channel as well as 4 pre fade auxiliaries for monitors (6 if side fills are being used) and 2 post fade auxiliaries for effects. Preferable desks would be Yamaha LS9 or M7CL but analogue desks from reputable manufacturers such as Midas, Soundcraft or Allen & Heath are perfectly acceptable, if this is the case; we also require a quality multi FX unit such as a TC Electronics M1XL.

Monitors

We require four quality wedge monitors (D & B M2 or similar) and four independent pre-fade mixes. Where an analogue desk is used we require a 31 band graphic equaliser inserted on each mix. For larger stages we also require stereo side fills

Lighting

The stage is to be well lit at all times so that the performance is clearly visible. Use of intelligent and effects lighting and smoke or haze to enhance the show is welcomed.

Sound Check

Bloomfield Avenue require a full 1 hour sound check. During this sound check the stage must be illuminated and there must be minimal extraneous noise in the room.

Shows involving air travel

A minimum 16 channel desk is required. The desk must have at least two swept mids per channel as well as 4 pre fade auxiliaries for monitors (6 if side fills are being used) and 2 post fade auxiliaries for effects. Preferable desks would be Yamaha LS9 or M7CL but analogue desks from reputable manufacturers such as Midas, Soundcraft or Allen & Heath are perfectly acceptable, if this is the case; we also require a quality multi FX unit such as a TC Electronics M1XL.
