Monolake Gig – Texture Manchester

Did you know that we recently provided a four point sound system for a live performance by the legendary Robert Henke, the creator of performance software ABLETON? The gig was on the 28th October 2017 at Texture in Manchester, a superb venue for cutting edge events.

Our system consisted of four of our Nova Acoustic EX600 columns, with deep bass provided by a cluster of four Nova E18 horn loaded subwoofers. We used two Linea Research 4 channel 44M20 power amplifiers to power the system, one amp to the bass cluster with independent speaker output to each EX600 column. This allowed Robert to manipulate sounds around the whole dance floor during the performance.

His set was mesmerising, the EX600’s provided really crisp detail, with a warm but strong impulses from the sub woofer stack.

One audience member posted this on Twitter after the gig

“Outstanding quadrophonic Monolake set from last night”

For Hollowsphere the event was a real success and we look forward to more events like this with Texture in the future.

Background music system and Projector installation – Ezra and Gill – Manchester

The owners of Ezra and Gil contacted us to provide a background music system for their new café in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. Prior to providing a quotation we set up a demo of various speaker options at the café.

Following a meeting and a demo due to it’s small footprint, brilliant sound quality and unobtrusive design we agreed to go for the APart Audio Mask4T loudspeakers.

The installation comprises of 6 x APart Mask4T speakers and APart Concept 1 integrated 60 + 60 watt amplifier and one APart Sub165A powered subwoofer with a Samsung Galaxy Tablet to stream the café audio.

The amplifier volume settings are locked out to allow system preset volume minimum and maximum volume limits.

The system provide crystal clear sound throughout the café, the owners are very pleased with the installation.

In addition the sound system we’ve installed led pinspots over the counter and a “barista cam”.
