MUSIC MIX MOBILE (M3) CHOOSES GENELEC DSP MONITORS FOR 2010 CMA AWARDS SHOW LIVE BROADCAST

Music Mix Mobile (M3), a New Jersey/California-based remote facilities company combining the talents of award-winning production professionals and state-of-the-art audio solutions, is a collective consisting of industry veterans John Harris, Jay Vicari, Joel Singer, Mitch Maketansky and West Coast-based Bob Wartinbee and Mark Linett. On Wednesday, November 10, 2010, M3 was charged with capturing and mixing the music audio for the 44th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, broadcast live in 5.1 on ABC-TV from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. In the company’s broadcast/mixing trucks, Music Mixers John Harris and Jay Vicari were on site to ensure the audio would be of the highest quality, and they chose Genelec 8200 Series Active DSP Monitoring Systems. Genelec DSP systems consisting of 8250A Bi-Amplified Active DSP Monitors and 8240A Bi-Amplified Active DSP Monitors, along with the 7260A Active DSP Subwoofers, were used in Music Mix Mobile’s “Eclipse? truck for the live music mix, as well as in the identical mirrored system in the “Horizon? offline remix truck.

The team responsible for the audio at this year’s CMA’s again included a who’s who of broadcast audio. The broadcast music mix was handled by Harris and Vicari; the audio was supervised by award-winning Audio Producers Michael Abbott and Tom Davis; and ATK/Audiotek provided the sound system with FOH (front-of-house) Mixers Patrick Baltzell and Rick Shimer.

In the days leading up to the awards ceremony and broadcast, the night’s performers rehearsed their segments live on the stage, with Harris and Vicari getting used to the mixes in real-time in the Eclipse truck and then going over those performances offline while playing them back for artist managers and the artists themselves in the Horizon truck, with an identical Genelec system. Together, they prepared for the live broadcast mix, so it was vital that both trucks had a world-class, consistent monitoring environment.

John Harris stated, “Genelec speakers are the industry standard and deliver accurate, uncolored sound, allowing me to work for hours at a time without any ear fatigue. I have worked with Genelecs for years and they have become my go-to speakers of choice.?

The Genelec 8200 Series Bi-Amplified Active Monitors employ the company’s proprietary DSP (Digital Signal Processing), GLM™ (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software) and AutoCal™ (Automated Calibration software) technologies, which together create a self-calibrating monitoring solution that both guarantees accurate audio and ensures a steady-paced workflow. This, combined with Music Mix Mobile’s long-time use of Genelec active monitors, made the Genelec DSP monitors an easy decision.
