TUBE-TECH SSA2B SUMS UP MARTY STUART AND ENGINEER MICK CONLEY

marty_mick.JPG

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JANUARY 2010: To suggest that Marty Stuart’s forthcoming album, Ghost Train, is a return to his roots, is nonsense, as he is one country singer/songwriter that has never strayed far from those roots. Even Stuart’s string of commercial hits in the 1990s were less about calculating hooks than they were about the affections of a fickle public – affections that shifted for a time toward authentic country. Stuart cut his teeth backing the likes of Lester Flatt, Doc Watson, and Johnny Cash. Ghost Train is a return to his roots, not in its content, but in its process. Stuart and longtime engineer Mick Conley went into legendary RCA Studio B, which is now literally a museum, to cut the tracks in the very first room that Stuart ever recorded in, back in the early 1970s, when he was playing with Lester Flatt. To highlight that beautiful recording more

ASHLY AMPLIFIERS ANCHOR HASTINGS MIDDLE SCHOOL AUDITORIUM AUDIO/VIDEO

hastings_middle_school.JPG

HASTINGS, MINNESOTA – JANUARY 2010: Just a half hour outside of the Twin Cities near the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers, Hastings, Minnesota blends the best of near-urban, suburban, and rural living. Hastings Middle School (HMS) has helped foster a uniquely engaged student body, with over 75% of students participating in the performing arts. Ironically, the school’s 700-seat auditorium – an inheritance from the building’s former life as the high school – balanced at the brink of disuse for years because aging audio/video and lighting components were failing on a regular basis. Resuscitation and intervention kept it limping along. However, all of that changed at the beginning of academic year 2009-2010, after Burnsville, Minnesota A/V design/install firm Intermedia Systems Group (ISG), replaced everything that had been terrible and flighty with equipment that was transparent and rock-solid, right down to the amp rack, which now gleams with the more

Shure Extends Rebate Program to Help With Wireless Transition

NILES, IL, JANUARY 15, 2010 – On the heels of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) order that the operation of wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, and related equipment in the 700 MHz band will not be permitted after June 12, 2010, Shure Incorporated reiterated its commitment to assist wireless system users with the transition.

“We’re pleased that the FCC has issued a firm transition date for 700 MHz wireless equipment,? said Mark Brunner, Senior Director Global Brand Management. “In anticipation of the post-DTV transition UHF landscape, Shure has been moving its product lines away from the 700 MHz band for the better part of a decade, and in recent years we have increased our information outreach to the user community, including very attractive trade-in rebate programs. Complying with this firm date will still be challenging for some users, but we remain committed to making the transition as easy as possible for them under the circumstances. It’s time for one final push to prevent interference with the new users of the spectrum.? more
