Bassnectar @ the Plaza Friday

Was looking forward to this but was sorely disappointed by the SHIT sound system at the Plaza.
Lorin still gave 'er though. Beats were top notch.

that's strange - plaza has one of the better systems in town. Could be that lorin was running the sound too hot... generally, that's the weakest link in the chain - a dj that stubbornly pushes the sound into the red...

Heh.

Lorin ALWAYS gets level happy. The system has been tweaked to assume he is going to headline everything.

I had no problem with it. But then I had musician's earplugs in the whole night, so it eliminated any and all noisy excess.

Well I work there. It was great sound on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Can you see the problem?

i wonder if lorin is starting to suffer from the "it's all gone pete tong" syndrome?

hope not. I like his stuff, but it's a little disconcerting to hear that a guy who's been in it as long as Lorin still doesn't know how to treat equipment.

lots of big headliners don't know how to treat equipment. The amount of touring DJs i've seen redlining the mixer non-stop is staggering.

What i still don't understand is the amount of DJs that require more sound in their monitors - instead of you know... raising the monitor levels - go ahead and just crank the gains so it fucks up the sound for everyone in room.

That's the reason people do sound checks...

Doubt it's that he's going deaf. Being unable to read the red lines on your mixer would mean you're going blind.

just to add, I've been to plenty of shows at the plaza and have been impressed with the sound (especially when the place is filled with bodies to absorb the sound). The fact that most people are saying the same thing leads me to believe that the sound issues have less to do with it being a "SHIT" soundsystem and more to do with there being a dj who thinks that redlines = superstardom

haha true that,
you'd think he'd be able to differentiate between clean output and one that's been distorted by cranking the gains heinously tho...

I totally hear what Soo is saying. It's crazy how many peeps locally and abroad don't know how to properly EQ the levels on a mixer during their set.

I'll have to check out another show there sometime then. Was the first time I had ever been in that spot.
Saw Lorin at the Commodore last time he played there and gotta say the sound was 10000 times better.

I also work there and the sound is always amazing.

Particularly last night, dead show but I almost shat myself from the power of those bass bins.

I think instead of being concerned with the sound, we ask ourselves, why were there so many fucking hoola hoops? Was everyone who attended this show fucking retarded?

Yeah, perhaps Lorin was abusing the levels. Would be nice to go back and hear someone play on that system who doesn't do that.
If that was the case.
