"This Evolution 500 Series that we're using is a great system," agrees Jim Yakabuski, who reports that four wired Evolution 865 microphones are additionally in use for the band's background vocals.The FOH engineer, well known for his seven-year association with Van Halen, has been working recently with a number of artists who favor Sennheiser microphones."I used the Evolution 565 mic on Avril Lavigne and the 865 with David Coverdale."Although more usually associated with a competing mic brand, Yakabuski admits, "I must say, my very favorite sounding vocal mic is the Neumann KMS 105.
"There's an MD 421 and a 57 in each ISO cabinet," explains Yakabuski."Each song, verse, chorus, bridge, each chunk of each song, uses any combination of four amps, with two mics in each."The routing and processing was stored into a Yamaha 01V digital console during production rehearsals with the assistance of Robert Scovill, the band's original FOH engineer - Yakabuski replaced him due to scheduling conflicts.

Jim Yakabuski (FOH engineer) selected V-DOSC for the left and right main hangs after successful tours with Matchbox 20, Van Halen and many others.
Jim and I felt that spending more time on the tuning of the system than on sound check would pave the path to more consistent sounding shows. It did! I worked very hard to achieve the most flat response from 12 K to 100 Hz, and then a very gentle slope up in the extended sub region around the arena. With this approach, Jim was able to do more mixing and much less input EQ to fix the system or room.

But one thing that has remained constant is FOH Engineer Jim Yakabuski who has been running Lavigne's sound since midway through her first tour in 2003.
For Lavigne's latest North American trek, in support of The Best Damn Album, Yakabuski and Orlando-based sound reinforcement provider LMG Inc. have chosen to return to an L-ACOUSTICS V-DOSC® and dV-DOSC loudspeaker system - this time supplementing the rig with the manufacturer's KUDO™ enclosures and new LA8 amplified controllers.
"We have 15 V-DOSC with three dV-DOSC down speakers per side as mains, and then 10 KUDO a side as side arrays,"Yakabuski explains.
Yakabuski has his hands full with mixing and needs a system that he doesn't have to worry about.
Yakabuski and LMG found that with the K-LIFT bar they could turn the KUDO cabinets on their sides and use three or four boxes in outdoor amphitheatre situations to get only 30 or 40 degrees of horizontal coverage, and then use the K-Louvers to adjust the vertical dispersion.
"It is a very flexible speaker system and a great choice for the side arrays. It blends very nicely with the V-DOSC as well, so they work great together,"Yakabuski adds.
