Fort Worth, TX – August 2011… The recently opened Cendera Center is a multipurpose facility designed to accommodate a wide range of functions, including fine arts performances, meetings, training sessions / presentations, boxing events, parties, and more. With such a varied agenda, selecting a sound reinforcement system capable of providing pristine music reproduction characteristics as well as a high level of speech intelligibility was a paramount issue during the venue’s planning stages. After evaluating a variety of systems, the consultants and client agreed that a self-powered setup drawn from the Aero Series 2 catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio was, without question, the right way to go. more

Clay Paky Sharpy Fixtures Rock in New Lighting Rig for Paul McCartney with grandMA Control

When it came time for rock legend Paul McCartney to acquire a new lighting rig for his many appearances from coast to coast, lighting designer Roy Bennett selected an array of Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures controlled by a grandMA console. Both product lines are represented in North America by A.C.T Lighting.

Bennett has been working with McCartney on a series of one-off concerts for the last four years, including the former Beatle’s opening of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California in 2009. “We had a rig that we traveled with, that we continually used for shows,” he says. “After all that time I wanted a new rig, and we had a couple of weeks of production time so I redesigned the rig to be really clean and efficient – something that was easy for production to deal with but that also had a lot of more

Europe’s largest independent mastering facility, The Metropolis Group, has purchased a significant package of 10 Sonnox Oxford Limiters and 10 Oxford EQs. Sonnox Sales & Marketing Manager Nathan Eames reports, the substantial plug-in acquisition was vetted by Metropolis Group Technology Development Manager, Crispin Murray. “We test drove a good number of plug-ins, and Sonnox were the ones that everyone seemed to come back to,” Murray said. “Because they were the most transparent of all we tried, they are now installed in all ten of our mastering suites.”

Mastering engineer Miles Showell comments, “Transparency is particularly important with loudness. I don’t think we’re mastering any louder than we used to. We won’t go down the ‘level at all costs’ route, but you do need to compete. If your stuff isn’t loud enough, clients will just go elsewhere. It’s better more
