No matter who we are, it’s a given that you’ll travel. Whether it be once a year or once a month, for work or for leisure, travelling is something that we should all enjoy. For music enthusiasts and professionals, taking to the road can often mean extra levels of prep as you seek to bring – and retain the quality that you love! To help, we’ve identified some of the best travel-friendly tech – from apps to extensions – that’ll help you retain a high level of output whilst on the move.
Dubbed ‘lunchbox’ amps, these tiny amp heads are small, affordable and easy to use – often even sold with a travel bag. That’s why we have been so impressed with the calibre of the so called’ micro’ guitar heads that are being released at the moment. These tiny amps can pack a real punch and Orange, Peavey, Blackstar and even Marshall all have ranges perfect for a different genres. MusicRadar have a recent round-up of some incredible ‘Lunchbox’ amps to read through here, featuring cutting distorted leads and smooth cleans!
A mobile recording studio powered by a specialised Blue microphone. This platform utilises PreSonus recording software matched with mastering software from iZotope, making the Raspberry Studio a brilliant solution for anybody who needs to record when out travelling. The microphone features a USB input, which is nothing new, but when paired with specialised software and a variety of downloadable plugins, the easy to use UI will make this an attractive purchase to anybody who needs to keep recording on the move. Read more on the Raspberry Studio website here.
iPad Docking Stations:
The iPad is the perfect device to take on the road that is capable of editing software – yet the design of the tablet does not lend itself well to music production. As a result, a number of companies have designed docking stations for the iPad that are capable of expanding the connectivity of the device; increased MIDI capabilities and a friendlier UI are all achievable (whilst third party made) for any travelling recording artist. You can see some great examples in this Gearank round up.
Sometimes travel means sticking to a budget, and for anybody looking for a cost-effective solution to recording on the road, there are always cheap smartphone apps that can help you out. Programmes like Garageband, Amplitube or Animoog that can all be used to simply record yourself, cheaply, with no need to lug any extra recording equipment. These pocket friendly options are perfect for recording and composing on long haul trips.
If you do choose to travel with expensive (yet portable) recording or musical technology, then be sure to contact Flightcase Warehouse to keep your gear safe when you’re on the road.

AV Tech from 2017 That We Love
So far in 2017 we’ve seen some incredible audio-visual technology released that has the potential to revolutionise the industry as we know it. This week, Flightcase Warehouse is taking a look at just 4 of the standout products that the brains in AV have brought to us, plus the benefits they could offer if you’re a pro working in the industry.
Osprey’s Talon G2 Encoder:
Osprey has been known to create some stellar products in the past, and their new encoder is no exception. Designed for AV professionals, this Osprey encoder allows streaming to up to three separate destinations, enhanced by a touch screen LED interface. To top this off, the kit has built in security features that promise a streamlined user experience, as authorised credentials need not be re-entered following every stream thus saving heap of time when on a job. For more information, you can visit the Osprey website here.
Samsung’s LED Cinema Screen:
Whilst purists may question notion of a cinema screen that does not make use of a projector, Samsung’s new LED cinema screen promises richer colours, no loss of focus and a consistent sharpness that is hard rivalled by traditional projection means. The self-laminating screen has a peak brightness level of almost ten times that of conventional projectors – as well as the potential to be utilised in many different industries, such as AV, as well as traditional cinema. AV pros working in events and broadcasting may want to check out the enhanced experience these screens offer. To learn more, read the official release here.
Delta DLP 4K:
On the subject of broadcasting, Delta group (alongside its brand Vivitek) has unveiled a 4K DLP solution, that is touted as the ‘world’s brightest 4,000 lumen laser phosphor illumination source’. If this makes sense to you – and sounds like good stuff – you’re in the right place. With a spec comprising four UHD-4k cubes, the platform can manage multiple video sources on one display, streamline control of several different video displays or even send a single signal to multiple outputs. Visit the Vivitek website to learn more about this brand new platform we think has great potential.
Sony’s 4K Projectors:
Sony are well-known purveyors of quality products that have mass popularity, and their new range of 4k projectors promises to uphold this tradition. Using a laser light source, the projectors can sustain a total brightness of 4500 lumens for up to 12,000 hours – which is perfect for the meeting room sized spaces that the projectors are aimed at. Integrated with ‘Reality Creation’, the projector processes every single input to ensure that the final image represents the sharpest, and most lifelike image possible. Learn more on the official website here.
These are only a few of the vast number of diverse products released this year – this week, next week, or even last week could see technology released that remodels the AV industry completely. This tech though, is always expensive and exceptionally valuable to its owners. This is why at Flightcase Warehouse, we design and manufacturer tailor-fit flight cases that provide unbeatable protection for the latest kit.

It’s no secret that the modern music industry makes the bulk of its money out of live performances. The world over, performing artists are directing more and more effort into delivering a live experience that will draw in new fans, and encourage a core audience to repeatedly spend their cash on a single “brand” as such. This live experience often manifests itself as a tour – and financial success often depends on getting it right.
There’s no single secret ingredient as such that makes a tour a success. Wowing an audience and making a performer appeal to whole swathes of new fans isn’t a singular thing. Yes, bands can play their songs 100% accurately, with 110% effort – but sometimes this is not enough. If not co-ordinated with a production team that’s equally razor-sharp, performances can leave a pretty bitter taste in the mouth of fans.
Let’s start with the bare essentials. Every touring artist should closely examine their sound equipment and mixing technology. Established performers will have a pro sound engineer to produce the perfect mix, but it’s always worth making an extra effort to understand the tech fundamentals that are behind your signature sound.
Spending a little bit of time learning about the production element of tours (and with vast online resources and by mining your professional network, you may not even have to plug in jack), will come with big payoffs. An artists, whether amateur or professional, who takes a comprehensive and careful view of their performance is certain to garner a great reputation and see reward in the form of bigger crowds, returning fans and wider opportunities.
It sounds obvious, but not rehearsing in musical isolation is also so important. Finding the time to rehearse with the full production set up in action means that from day one, the “live sound” as a whole will be worked upon and the performance will run (hopefully) like clockwork. Today, audience expectations are high and unfortunately for many, getting up on stage and doing what’s traditionally worked will no longer cut it. Embrace the full picture and tap in to fan preferences early on, and you’re on to a winner!
No matter what the genre, “spectacle” is becoming part of the standard package. When you look at some of the top earning world tours at the moment (Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Adele and Bruno Mars for example) a large part of these shows are based around lighting cues, LED displays, mini movies etc. The added-value element of these features is why they’re used, so finding a budget-friendly alternative to A List investments will go far.
Well thought out, on brand and smaller scale performance spectacle is totally doable. Starter kits including light fixtures that create a suitable stage ambience, smoke to play with light effects, banners for crisp projections and a dynamic backdrop greatly enhance the experience and communicate that extra value, experience-led performance the modern audience demands.
