Live sound back from the dead?
Filter 6: Making it Live and Loud! Filter 6: Making it Live and Loud!

Is live sound making a comeback with music manned not canned? This month Filter looks at some of the companies and people who are making live music liver and louder. Nexo and RCF get subtly blasted to the forefront to join the front row of head banging live music appreciators as we look at a couple of independent sound companies.
