Tour Supply has teamed up with Programmer/mad scientist “Viggy” Vignola to bring you Playback Control! We’ve created playback systems for dozens of artists including Aerosmith, Imagine Dragons, Chicago, Rob Zombie and many more! Our systems feature Digital Performer software and are rock solid – in regards to hardware, construction, and programming. We strive to make our systems extremely user friendly and very easy to operate. A footswitch starts each song for you, while you can view and cue up new songs on your integrated iPad. Set list changes on the fly? No problem…with our system you can easily adjust your set list at a moment’s notice. See http://www.playbackcontrol.com for more info or give us a call at Tour Supply – 1-800-933-TOUR(8687).
We recently completed this playback control fly system for one of our clients. They’ve had their touring rig out for quite some time but needed to get a fly system for one offs and such. We have the fly rig loaded into (2) 5 space racks inside Pelican 1620 cases. There is a 3rd rack for the drum trigger/sample system which is also in a 1620. Each case is less than 70 lbs and can easily be checked as luggage and secured with Pelican TSA locks.

Ok, not the best pic but you get the idea. It’s a playback system built into 2 pelican flyracks. These racks are 63 and 66 pounds. It’s a fully redundant system and has 2 Macbook pros + an iPad. See http://www.playbackcontrol.com for more info on playback built by Viggy & Tour Supply!

Here’s a wireless rig we put together recently for a client. This system contains Shure Axient for vocals along with the AXT600 Spectrum manager. There are 16 channels of PSM1000 and 16 channels of ULXD as well. Everything is networked together via Wireless Workbench 6 and able to be flown in our Pelican Flyracks.
