Lawo goes live with Coldplay


To celebrate the release of its new album, Coldplay performed two sets at Amman’s Citadel in Jordan. These were dubbed Sunrise and Sunset, and streamed live on YouTube with the aid of a Lawo mc256 mixing console, supplied by SR Films.

When looking for a solution for the Amman broadcast mix, Coldplay’s audio designer, FOH tech and crew chief, Tony Smith, turned to sound engineer Toby Alington, who went to Dirk Sykora from Lawo to discuss using an mc256 mixing console. The two sets were recorded live with Coldplay’s producer and sound engineer Rik Simpson and FOH engineer Dan Green.

The console used 192 inputs to record on three separate DAW machines, which were mixed live on the console for stereo broadcast. ‘It certainly wasn’t an event filmed to playback,’ said Sykora. ‘We really needed those 192 audio channels, and additionally rigged an array of ambience mics around the Citadel to capture Amman’s live “atmos” at dawn and dusk.’
