NSJM sound reinforces Sunburn’s KSHMR and KYGO with the d&b Audiotechnik V Series

NJSM delivered outstanding audio support for Sunburn’s KSHMR and KYGO tours for their Kolkata and Mumbai chapters respectively. Both these events were powered by their much recently acquired d&b Audiotechnik V Series rig.

The Kolkata event was powered by 24 V Series tops with 20 Subs. “Typically we have worked on this venue for previous events of Sunburn and now are well aware of the venue, but this time we had a challenge since we were working with a different system, but d&b’s ArrayCalc made it very easy for us” says Sachit Subramanian the Chief System Engineer on the show.

The show was pre-planned with the help of accurate venue data from Sunburn’s crew which was later on used to create simulations on ArrayCalc, therefore making it very easy to setup for the technician crew and during the show for Mix Engineer Sancheth Suvarna. “I used one Waves plug in on the Subs and one Waves Multiband Compressor on the master, and that’s about it, tuning the system is practically not needed when it comes to the d&b,” says Sancheth. The event had over 5000 crowd as footfall making it another successful event for the NJSM team in Kolkata.

The Mumbai event was a very different challenge; the venue was a broader venue and crowd expectancy was over 7000 people. Also since it was Mumbai the home turf for Percept and NJSM, no mistakes could have been made. It again started with accurate venue data that was provided. “I went down to the level of marking and measuring everything by the millimeter - proper measurements and then placement on site according to that, which meant less work for me to tune the system later, since d&b’s calculated data is accurate. If everything is done right, everything sounds right” says Sachit who was the Chief System Engineer again for this show. Rigging on this show was a different experience for this young team as they have just started their journey into large scale events. “We started rigging our system only at 4:00 PM on the previous day and started having some challenges. Here I’d say the loudspeaker manufacturer has actually made rigging as easy as eating a cake. Our earlier systems used to take a day just to rig 10 tops, but here we finished two hangs of 14 tops, two outfill hangs of 4 tops and two subarray hangs of 4 subs each and 20 Subs on ground within 4-5 hours” says Sudharshan Shetty the Chief Rigging Specialist.

“Working with a new teams is always fun, they are more energetic and enthusiastic. The NJSM team is not just young and energetic but also technically very sound. They take the event as a whole and not just as sound vendors helping us wherever needed. The gear they use is amazing and they execute their events with passion and that’s what we are looking for. We look forward to work on more gigs with this team” says Yogesh Malhotra, the Production Manager of Percept Live, the company that owns and executes the property Sunburn. “SIZE DOES NOT MATTER” exclaims Nixon Johnny, “I’ve always believed that engineering today has reached a stage where smaller boxes can deliver similar dynamics that a bigger box can and d&b V Series have proven that to us time and again” he adds.
