Atlanta Sound and Lighting uses EV, Midas to "Rock FORE Dough" at the Masters golf tournament

April 16th, 2009

The sixth annual Rock FORE Dough concert was held April 9 through April 12 in Augusta, Ga. during the Master’s golf tournament. Featuring performances by Hootie and the Blowfish, Zac Brown Band, Shawn Mullins, and 48 Volt, with sound and light by Atlanta Sound & Lighting (ASL), the event raised money to benefit the First Tee of Augusta, which promotes character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.

ASL has raised the bar annually at Rock FORE Dough over the last six years, and this year was no different: ASL debuted their Electro-Voice XLC line array system with DVX woofer upgrades as the main PA and deployed their new Midas PRO6 for the Front-of-House mix. A second PRO6-currently on tour with Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish, completed the console spec at FOH.

The main EV rig featured 20 XLC DVX boxes hung 10 per side along with six flown XLC118 subs per side. In addition, ASL used eight EV MTL-2 boxes as side fills on the deck and six ZX1 front fills, each driven from the PRO6’s auxiliary sends. EV Xw12 served as stage wedges.

Thomas Smith, Sound Department Manager for ASL, comments: “We just upgraded our DVX woofers about two weeks ago, and the vocals hit you square in the face through those boxes - they’re not only warm and intelligible; there’s a lot more power behind them. The horns are very smooth. I was happy to debut the DVX woofers at an event as renowned as the Master’s. They sound fantastic.“

In addition to the main XLC rig, ASL’s EV spec also included IRIS-Net control and supervision software (interfaced on the PRO6), NetMax N8000 digital control/matrix, Dx38 speaker processors, and CP4000S and CP3000S amplifiers. “We’re pretty much EV through and through,“ says Smith.

The Midas PRO6 consoles at FOH completed the picture with suitably superb sonic performance: “This year, using the new PRO6s, I was able to use IRIS-Net on the same work surface. We began using IRIS-Net roughly a year and a half ago and love it. Using the KVM switch on the PRO6, I’m able to control the PA, IRIS-Net, and all our Dx38s from a screen on the console. It’s awesome, I never have to go back to another computer or laptop - I can do everything from our PRO6 now; I never have to leave that screen. It’s great!“
