Vocal precision on Worship Night

Published: WORSHIP

USA: Grammy winner Chris Tomlin has been travelling across America, delivering his brand of contemporary Christian music to live audiences on his Worship Night tour. In addition to Mr Tomlin, those attending the shows are treated to performances from other Christian artists Big Daddy Weave, Phil Wickham and Zach Williams.

Accompanying the artists on the Worship Night tour is an L-Acoustics main PA system comprising K1 and Kara cabinets supplied by Mid-America Sound. Mr Tomlin has grown accustomed to the manufacturer’s systems, having relied on them for many years. The setup sees 28 K1 and 12 Karas divided evenly across two hangs with the latter serving as down-fills. An additional 36 Kara enclosures are employed as side-fills, flown 18 per side, and another six are implemented as front-fills. Lows are handled by 16 SB28 subwoofers arrayed in 4x4 cardioid configurations.

The main PA K1 systems are powered by 14 LA12X amplified controllers, while the Karas serving as down-, front- and side-fills and the subwoofers are amplified by 16 LA8s. Four consoles from DiGiCo’s SD series are used for mixing, including an SD10 managed by Mr Tomlin’s FOH mixer Kyle McMahon. These are accompanied by two Dolby Lake processors that are accessible through an insert point on the SD10.

‘In contemporary Christian music, the vocals and lyrics are very important, and the K1 has a very smooth midrange sound that really helps bring clarity to the vocals and entire mix,’ says Nick Turner, Worship Night system technician. ‘The K1/Kara PA works so well for this kind of show; we couldn’t imagine doing it without them.’
