Cadac R-Type Picnics in Hyde Park
Monday, 30 July 2001
Cadac R-Type Picnics in Hyde ParkPictured (l-r) are Alexander 'Thorny' Yuill-Thornton II, John Pellowe and Cadac's Peter McGuire.
The first ever Cadac R-Type lightweight touring console to perform in the UK featured on the Picnic with Pavarotti concert, staged in Hyde Park, London, on 14th July. Sound Engineering Director for the event was John Pellowe, who handles all technical aspects of the Pavarotti and Three Tenors concerts, together with Alexander ‘Thorny’ Yuill-Thornton II, who handles the sound system design and system optimisation. Audio equipment for the concert was supplied by Sound Hire.

The R-Type uses Cadac's unique ‘plug-anywhere’ modules for fast installation. Contained within a easily re-configurable package, it provides comprehensive facilities for both FOH and monitor mixing, and features a new lightweight monocoque design and a slimmer module width. The desk continued its Hyde Park theme with Route of Kings which ran from 20-29th July, and featured Lord of the Dance, Andrea Bocelli, Status Quo and the Beach Boys, Tom Jones, and closed with two performances by Sting. The audio equipment was supplied by Britannia Row with the R-Type being used as the house mixer under the supervision of John Gibbon.
