Grimsby Auditorium Sounds Great with Allen & Heath Avantis
UK – Leading entertainments venue, Grimsby Auditorium, has recently invested in upgrading its sound desk to a state-of-the-art Allen & Heath Avantis.
Based in North East Lincolnshire, Grimsby Auditorium is an intimate custom designed venue. Since opening its doors in 1995, it has played host to a number of high-profile performers as well as international touring acts and shows, including Starlight Express, Blood Brothers and Calendar Girls Jimmy Carr, Peter Kay and Sarah Millican, and international rock acts (Morrissey, Kasabian and The Stereophonics), the list goes on.
Shane Jackson, Grimsby Auditorium’s stage manager commented: “After having our previous sound desk for around 15 year we felt it was time to upgrade to some newer technology. We have no doubt that this will have a positive impact on upcoming productions as well as our customers experience. Having researched our options and considered what was on the market we felt that the Allen & Heath Avantis was the perfect fit for the venue.”
With the glimmer of hope for productions that came following the government roadmap, the new sound desk is hopefully getting its first show in June, where the Avantis will be used to do sound for afour to six piece band.
“From the brief time we have had the desk I know it will be a new favourite among the team. The layout is very logical and very simple to use. Allen & Heath have created a great desk. If offers huge flexibility for both input and output, all doable at 96khz, with 42 mix busses its more than enough for our venue needs. The FX processing works incredibly well, and I know I cannot wait to start using the desk for shows to give the audience a great sound quality,” commented Ryan Young, Grimsby Auditorium’s assistant technician.
The Allen and Heath Avantis was supplied to Grimsby Auditorium by leading entertainment technology supplier, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET).
“We as a venue have worked with AC-ET for a good number of years and have purchased a variety of equipment ranging from TVs, projectors and speakers to cables, IT equipment and plugs. AC-ET are great to work with and provide us with great advice, experience, and knowledge in all aspects we need,” concluded Shane.
