Our Approach to Audio
In a world full of MP3s and cheap digital processing it is easy to overlook the importance of accurate sound reproduction. In our eyes an event which requires sound reinforcement should consider what the audio brings to your event before settling for second best.
If people attend your event and are met by an over-driven, under-specced or inferior sound system they will no doubt make an immediate negative assumption about the entire production. Sound systems are in no way a new technology which leads to the question… “Surely we can do better than this?”
At Velocity we strive for audio excellence and nothing less! This approach has proven priceless time and time again when we hire sound systems to our clients, Countless times we have been thanked for providing reliable and accurate sound systems delivering clean, intelligible audio.
The equipment used is only half of the picture; there are many factors to consider in achieving great sound before you even consider the sound crew; their skills, efficiency and professionalism.
This point is being highlighted to demonstrate that your decision regarding which audio system you use should not be taken lightly. There a loads of fantastic providers and sound systems who share our approach to sound, many of whom (like us) are more than happy to advise as to the best solution for your event.
We have a firm belief that knowledge and understanding are the backbone of the events industry and no more so than in audio. So not only do we have a keen understanding of the equipment used but also the science behind achieving great results, audio reproduction is a science; the laws of physics govern what is achievable and guide us to the very top of our game.
So don’t delay… if you need to hire a band PA system, a festival sound system or require sound reinforcement for any event, simply pick up the phone!
