Lighting and Video Projection at Erchless Castle, near Beauly. 4 April 2017.

Lighting and Video Projection at Erchless Castle, near Beauly. 4 April 2017.

Tucked away, out of sight, on the A831 where the River Glass meets the River Beauly is Erchless Castle. If you’ve ever travelled from Beauly to Cannich there’s every chance you’ve driven past the castle and never known it, like I have at least a half dozen times in the last twenty years. The entrance ..

LiveWire at the Royal British Legion, Inverurie. 25 February 2017!

24 Hours of Work for a Two and a Half Hour Event! On Saturday 25th February 2017 we were invited to provide a sound system and light show for Live Wire, an AC/DC tribute act from Englandshire. Of course we naturally obliged! Who could resist? And once again I was ever so keen to document ..

Funny Music Related Wi-Fi Names For Your Network

When EatAudio is out doing a gig… from Aberdeen to Aviemore, Elgin to Ellon, Dufftown to Dundee, Banff to Banchory… more often than not some kind of digital kit comes with us.

I’ve seen many dance music events come and go, some more successful than others, but successful none the ..

The death of the mixer and the multicore…

The death of the mixer and the multicore…

Last week I took ownership of Behringer’s X-Air XR18 digital mixer. It’s not a desk, it’s a rack format digital mixing console that’s operated remotely either by a tablet or PC device. It has 16 mono inputs with parametric EQ, gates and compression on every channel. It’s as game changing as you’d come to imagine, ..

To blog or not to blog…

Over the course of the remainder of this websites life… I’ll be blogging about my sound and lighting adventures, nightmares, and shenanigans! As and when I find the time. The EatAudio website has undergone many looks and transformations over the last 15 years, but I’m currently happier with it now more than ever. It has ..
