Billed as the biggest and most technically ambitious show ever, Net Aid recently took place simultaneously across three venues in London, New York and Geneva, and was broadcast live across the world via television, radio and, of course, via the Internet.The biggest of the three live shows took place at London's Wembley Stadium, where a capacity crowd enjoyed live sets from a prestigious line-up including Robbie Williams, George Michael, David Bowie and Bryan Adams. The rental company tasked with supplying the audio system for the event was Canegreen, who provided a self-powered Meyer system for the main PA with Midas XL-4 and Heritage 3000 control.The control set-up provided by Canegreen was almost exclusively Midas. Two XL-4s at the FOH position, overseen by Max Bisgrove and Snake Newton, whilst on monitors, Chris Peters and Seamus Fenton conducted operations via two Midas Heritage 3000s. EQ for both FOH came via Klark Teknik processing with the classic DN360s. Other vital components of the signal processing rack from the KT stable included DN5000 dual compressors, DN8000 digital system controllers and DN6000 audio analysers. And there was more Midas involvement, as David Bowie brought in his own Heritage 3000 for his in-ear set-up.
