SNL Pro at the helm of OnePlus Music Festival
The One Plus Music Festival was recently held in Mumbai, India, on 16 November 2019 featuring a mix of prime international acts with local Indian artists in a concert setting never seen before in India. Curated and designed by One Plus, the event merged the best performances in music and supported by a massive set that featured over 550 moving lights, 280 speakers, and 4,500 running feet of trussing coupled with incredible artiste production making for a larger-than-life experience. SNL Pro were roped in to deploy the entire audio system, trussing roof system and rigging for all the lighting, sub-hangs and multiple hoists, pyrotechnics and the special effects.
SNL Pro opted to roll out the L-Acoustics K1 and K2 line source as the main P.A. with the left-right arrays made up of 24 x K1 and 12 x K2 cabinets, flown XYZ over XYZ per side. For sub-bass, 64 x SB28 subwoofers were ground-stacked in front of the stage. Sixteen K1 and 32 x K2 cabinets delivered Outfill, while 8 x Kara cabinets were positioned to provide front fills. Sixteen X15 speakers were positioned center stage to provide stage monitoring. Eight line array towers were deployed totaling 40 x K1s, 92 x K2s and 18 x Karas. L-Acoustics P1 managed processing, with power coming from L-Acoustics LA8 and LA12X amplifiers. The P1 processor also served as a front-end processor, an audio matrix and bridge. “Choosing L-Acoustics was simple as it produces an unparalleled sonic experience for the audience, with easily reconfigurable sound systems. Renowned throughout the industry for pioneering the modern line array, L-Acoustics offers a total system approach that delivers a colossal experience to the listener. L-Acoustics 3D sound design and acoustical simulation program – Soundvision, capable of operating in real time, took care of the SPL mapping and complex sound system planning and configuration. A total of 11 consoles, nine in use (5 x DiGiCo SD10, 1 x DiGiCo SD5, 3 x Avid S6L) with two standing by as backup. Only Dua Lipa carried her own desk, with the rest supplied from SNL Pro.
