GV Audio Inc. Uses Yamaha CL5 to Mix Talent at Regina Folk Festival

October, 2012

Yamaha CL5 a new Favorite

Held annually at Victoria Park in Regina, Saskatchewan on a weekend in August, the Regina Folk Festival is a much-anticipated celebration of folk music. With over 5,000 concertgoers in attendance each of the three days, the concert’s main stage this year featured Timber Timbre, Cold Specks, Shad, Mavis Staples, The Jim Cuddy Band, Great Lake Swimmers, Serena Ryder & The Heartbroken, Elage Diouf, Austra, Stars, The Barr Brothers, Pokey LaFarge & The South Country Three, Alejandra Robles, Arlo Guthrie Tribute to Woody Guthrie, and Emmylou Harris.

Regina Folk Festival used the production talents of local sound company, GV Audio, Inc. who chose a new Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console and two RIO-3224D remote I/Os for main stage front of house mixing. "Most of the visiting engineers were very familiar with Yamaha consoles, but since the CL5 is new, I first showed them the similarities to other Yamaha consoles and then ran them through features in the CL that they were interested in trying," states Don Hricz, audio engineer, GV Audio. "They were able to quickly pull a mix together; some had brought their files with them that we easily converted to the CL5. One of the engineers downloaded the CL5 Editor the night before his show so he became quite familiar with the console."

Hricz said that he and the other nine+ guest engineers were very impressed with the sound and feel of the console. "The Yamaha CL5 is my new favorite!"
