Triplex Relies On DiGiCo For London Grammar Tour


GBR: Triplex Productions relies on the DiGiCo consoles for London Grammar tour.

Trip-hop trio London Grammar has been touring its new album 'Truth is a Beautiful Thing' since March. The band's atmospheric performance is enhanced by a cinematic set and needed a clarity and depth of audio to match. "Because of that, we chose DiGiCo consoles for both Front of House and monitors," said Ross Cornwall, Managing Director of Triplex Productions, which supplies the band's audio system.

Triplex became involved with London Grammar when they wanted to push the production values of their live show up a notch. They were after something special and brought Triplex owner Mark Sunderland in to production manage their technical requirements.
"The collaboration has worked really well and the tour has gone everywhere - the USA, Canada, Australia, Europe, Asia," said Ross. "It's so successful that don't always know where we're going to be, as dates keep getting added to the bands diary. The venues are a real mix from large festivals (Glastonbury, Pukkelpop, etc) to the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith and O2 Academy Brixton. It's been a real challenge for the team to deliver constant results no matter what territory or venue they are in."
Mark not only production manages, but mans the monitor position on a DiGiCo SD10, with Dan McBean at Front of House using the newest of DiGiCo's consoles, the SD12, with both running Stealth Core 2 software.

"The sound of DiGiCo consoles is great and their flexibility is almost unlimited," Ross said. "A major benefit is the Optocore networking tool. Triplex relies on it for the implementation of this project. With Recording and playback to both desks via an Optocore DD4MR, the network is super flexible and FOH and monitors can send audio between themselves, too, keeping the multicores totally digital."
Ross notes that SD10 has a plenty of I/O and gives Mark the flexibility to expand when needed.

The tour continues throughout the rest of this year, with further dates scheduled in Europe, Australia and the UK.
