Mix engineer Richard Barling used a Sadie LRX2 location audio workstation on a recent three-week Friendly Fires tour of the US.

‘I used it to both multitrack record the shows and ‘virtual soundcheck’ at soundcheck time.

‘We ran 28 channels from stage, four lines of music and intro at FOH and two audience mics.

‘In total, we recorded 36 channels every night via the two fibre-optic MADI cables linked to a Soundcraft Vi6 local rack with MADI outs and one wordclock cable,’ Barling said.

He used the Sadie MTR software to capture and play the audio back into every channel on the Vi6, as if the band were performing on stage.

‘The audio comes back into the desk in exactly the same gain level.

‘MTR saved the files neatly onto an external hard drive as broadcast wav files so I could import them into Pro Tools ready for mixing on the tour bus with headphones,’ he said.

Sadie’s LRX2 location audio workstation is a multi-channel recorder and editor, capable of recording and editing up to 64 channels through a MADI interface, or 48 channels using a choice of digital and/or analogue input/output cards.

It runs on a standard USB2-enabled laptop/desktop PC, running Windows XP Home or Professional.

The LRX2 comes complete with the full version of Sadie 5 software and simplified MTR package, providing a simplified, flexible and intuitive user interface for recording and editing on location.

‘I also liked the fact that I could use a bog-standard laptop to control the unit as most of the processing is done within the LRX2 and audio saved onto a normal external hard drive,’ Barling added.
