FERRARI WORLD’S THEME MUSIC RECORDED BY JULIAN SCOTT USING METRIC HALO GEAR

LONDON, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 2010: Recently opened, Ferrari World, the world’s largest theme park and the first and only Ferrari theme park in the world is located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates featuring a multiplex of driving-related attractions, thrill rides, and, of course, a racetrack. The structure is massive, covering fifty acres with a unique red dome roof adorned by a massive Ferrari logo. In a distinctive break from the well-trodden theme park music motif, celebrated composer Julian Scott was commissioned to write and record themes for the “factory” section of the new park. His cues are replayed in surround sound and synchronized to both the ride dynamics and the high-definition video replays. Scott recorded the pieces at famed Abbey Road studios, relying on Metric Halo ULN-8 and 2882+DSP converters to capture the enormously expensive session in stunning quality, without hiccup.

THE NEW CHAPEL AT ATLANTA’S PERIMETER CHURCH RINGS TRUE WITH DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS

perimeter_church.JPG

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – NOVEMBER 2010: Over thirty-five years ago Randy and Carol Pope founded Perimeter Church in the Atlanta metro area. Hotel magnate Cecil B. Day, originator of the Day’s Inn chain of “budget-luxury” hotels, rented space to the fledgling church for a mere $50 month and helped propel Perimeter Church to its current success. Now standing on ninety-five acres, Perimeter Church operates a complex of utilitarian buildings for all manner of functions and ministries, including nine auditoriums. But until recently, the campus was missing a beautiful chapel to host special services, events and weddings. That changed this year, with the christening of the Cecil B. Day Chapel, a 475-seat sanctuary of gorgeous wood, stone, and stained glass below a vaulted wooden ceiling. To complement the visual aesthetic, Steve Simmons, director of technical ministries at Perimeter Church, built the sound system around Danley Sound Labs full-range loudspeakers, subwoofers, and stage more

SoHo, NY, NY – November 2010… The Touring Company Store is a new retail concept and, being located in the SoHo area of Manhattan, it couldn’t be a better fit for its surroundings.
