Lawo - Mc2 - Bastille Day 2021 - FOH

The mix of the traditional Concert de Paris, which took place at the foot of the Eiffel Tower to celebrate Bastille Day, was performed with Lawo’s mc2 solutions.

The FOH console used for the orchestra’s mix was an mc²56 with 48 faders. In parallel, a second 48-fader mc²56 was in charge of the monitoring tasks, supported by a 16-fader mc² extender that allowed social distancing between two operators. The Lawo consoles operated connected to the Optocore fiber optic network, which was set up by Radio France and used to connect the event’s mixing consoles and I/O systems.

In addition, separate control of the FOH preamps and monitors, and a split of the Lawo mc²66 console used for broadcast mixing from a Radio France mobile unit, enabled the use of the console stage boxes and Dallis microphone preamps.
