This nightclub won the prestigious Club Systems International Best Nightclub 2007 Award. The opening of the first ever nightclub at a resort as world famous as The Mirage called for a unique design and installation.

Avalon Sound’s Richard Worboys decided to use ShowCAD Artist as the control system and writes as follows about the installation:

“This was quite a complicated control system to setup. ShowCAD Artist was the central control system that ultimately controlled all the other elements. We were directly controlling many moving head fixtures and strobes, cuing a Media Server and a 96 x 80 resolution LED Matrix ceiling.

Taking full advantage of Artist’s excellent MIDI and patching capabilities, we had 3 MIDI keyboards (Edirol PCRM50 and 2 M Audio Radium49) and 2 Behringer BCF2000 fader panels.  We also implemented 3 Sustain pedals for foot control. The Behringer Fader panel worked great for controlling the media server, with its 8 media layers. Using the Behringer’s 8 faders, we patched the fader panel to control all elements via different pages. The fixtures were set up in a basic Matrix layout to take advantage of Artist’s powerful Matrix capabilities, not only using them for LED control.

We also used an 8x8 VGA matrix to switch between outputs to the 6 DL1 projectors, the LED Matrix. We installed two VGA monitors for Artist in the booth,  providing for better visibility and enabling us to comfortably operate, programme and to preview video.”
