Live Projects

L‑ISA systems have been used in a wide variety of live events including classical, jazz and rock music. Feedback has been uniformly positive with specific praise being given for immersion, clarity and consistency.

l’Orchestre National de Lille

We found the L‑ISA controller very simple to use, the interface is intuitive and very functional. Once the sources are placed in their space, the mixing is fairly conventional and any adjustments within the software during the concert were quick and easy.

The greatest compliment that I could receive would be for someone to ask me after a concert if there was any sound reinforcement. Given the results we obtained at the Stade, I’m convinced that in a more traditional environment, the audience wouldn’t know that there was any sound reinforcement at all.

— Francois Gabert, Engineer

Description Of The Project :

The project is to reinforce a symphonic orchestra of 100 musicians plus choir in an indoor stadium

Sound Design Solution :

A classic design would use a left-right configuration of 12 K2 per side plus out-fills, front-fills and subs.

The L‑ISA design solution consists of a scene system made of seven speaker groups, equally spaced above the performing zone. The total width of the system expands the size of the orchestra by 40% to sonically create a larger than live orchestra, still respecting accurate localization.

Setup :

Renaud Phénix Tour

“Renaud is known to his fans for the sentimentality of his songs.. Unfortunately, his voice has suffered over the years and is therefore rather delicate to treat in concert, especially when his lyrics are so important.It is paramount that the public understands every word he sings. With an L‑ISA system, I no longer have to blend Renaud in with the whole of the mix while trying to make him stand out. Instead, I have the tools hear him truly surrounded by his musicians and to restore the full musicality of his poetry.”

— Madje Malki, FOH for Renaud Phénix tour

Urban Voices

“L‑ISA live connects the sound with the visual image of the artists performing on stage. It allows every member of the audience optimum sound and consistency with what they are seeing, not just those in the seats located in the central axis of the scene.

It was a great opportunity to deploy the L‑Acoustics system – acquired two years ago during an upgrade to the Cité’s PA – in a new configuration, that introduces the audience to a truly immersive experience.”

— Mickaël Sourisseau, La Cité Nantes Events Center’s technical manager

Description Of The Project :

Subwoofers: SB28 (mono aux)

Setup :

Disney in Concert

“I’m very happy to say that using L‑ISA is a big step towards more people in the audience experiencing more of the sonic detail connected with what one can see on stage. This imaging clarity is usually only available in full quality to those seated near the middle. Mixing on the L‑ISA system was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience, and the number of people who complimented the sound this year was a good indication that it was recognised by many.”
