LECTROSONICS DEPLOYED IN ST. JOSEPH CATHEDRAL RESTORATION PROJECT

Sioux Falls, SD – November 2011… Built in 1919, St. Joseph Cathedral is the largest church in South Dakota and one of the larger Roman Catholic cathedrals in the United States. This historic structure recently marked the completion of a massive $17M restoration and renovation with the blessing of the cathedral doors and the dedication of a new altar. Returning the cathedral to its 1920’s-era glory was a huge undertaking and, as part of the project, a new sound reinforcement system was placed into service. Audio processing and wireless microphone technology are an integral part of the new sound setup and, to ensure the best possible performance, the system designers specified equipment from Rio Rancho, NM-based Lectrosonics. more

CASE STUDY: MIKESOUND USES THE METRIC HALO ULN-8 PREAMP/CONVERTER AS A SONIC SWISS ARMY KNIFE

BLUEFIELDS, NICARAGUA – OCTOBER 2011: Brooklyn-based engineer and producer Michael Gassert, known to his music and film colleagues as “MikeSound,” would appear to spend little time in New York. His uncanny knack for capturing the sonic soul of a musical performance, no matter how remote the location or strained the resources, has earned him the respect of his peers and a full travel calendar. Recently, MikeSound traveled to the Nicaraguan port city of Bluefields (not an easy thing to do) to spend three months recording legendary costeña singers of the regional and endemic musical traditions, most notably Maypole, Mento and Calypso. He relied on a Metric Halo ULN-8′s compact collection of mic-pres, DIs, converters, Character modeling, routing, mixing, and DSP much as an explorer relies on a Swiss Army knife. The ULN-8 was easy to pack and prepared MikeSound to make excellent recordings in unpredictable situations.

A local label, Bluefields Sound System, and MikeSound co-sponsored the project with the help of a small grant from UNESCO. The connection between BSS and MikeSound began five years earlier when together they captured a documentary about the Bluefields musicians. Although MikeSound planned to record some of the same musicians, as well as new performers this time around, the stars of this effort would be two legends of Nicaraguan music, local rivals Mango Ghost and Sabú. Now septuagenarians, the two musicians had defined the musical landscape of Bluefields, but, despite their cultural importance, few recordings of their music have survived. Although young for their age of seventy-something (a local legend has it that Sabú, who still does the splits on stage, is actually more than two hundred years old), the label recognized that the opportunity to record their genius was finite.

Nicaragua’s only international airport is in Managua, on the western side of the country, and a mountain range stands between it and Bluefields on the eastern side of the country. Travel options between the coasts are limited to an eight-hour bus ride plus a three-hour panga boat ride through the jungle, or a mostly reliable puddle jumper instead. MikeSound’s journey with his mobile rig would take him by land, air and sea. “When we conceived the project, I knew mobility and compactness would be essential,” said MikeSound. He began with a four rack-space Calzone case and selected his equipment carefully. “The Metric Halo ULN-8 was the centerpiece,” he said. “That and my MacBook Pro would be the starting point for every recording.” In addition, he brought a Furman P-1800 AR voltage regulator/power conditioner (electricity in Bluefields is reliably unreliable), an RME Fireface 800, and an API 3124 four-channel mic pre.

Bluefields Sound System has makeshift studio, complete with egg crate diffusion and old clothing stuffed into the walls for isolation, that MikeSound planned to use for final vocals, acoustics and keys. However, the studio was too small and dead sounding to do justice to the rhythmic backbone of Mango Ghost and Sabú’s music. Therefore, he spent a month recording the entire songs live to a click in an outdoor restaurant, La Loma, at the highest point in the city. “It’s quiet and calm up there,” he said. To protect himself from the notorious Bluefields thuggery, MikeSound set up and tore down the session every day. He tracked with Digital Performer 7 using a collection of AKG, Shure, Sennheiser, and Schoeps microphones.

“I’ve been a fan of Metric Halo for a long time,” said MikeSound. “They make fantastic preamps and converters, a fact that, by itself, makes their gear stand out. But on top of that, the ULN-8 offers Character modeling, full-blooded DSP, and flexible routing. The character modeling is some of the best I’ve ever heard. It can be very subtle but very authentic and does a nice job of warming things up when needed. And the DSP is also top-notch. The ‘HaloVerb’ sounds as authentic as the UADs I use back in Soho.” MikeSound took advantage of the ULN-8′s flexible routing by creating custom DB-25 cables that allowed him to deliver in-the-box headphone mixes for all of the musicians. “Because I had to set up and tear down so frequently, it was a great time saver to have all of the monitor configurations recallable,” he said.

Currently back in New York and working with partners to launch a new indie label, No Shame, MikeSound also has kept busy for the past six years as the engineer of the Master Musicians of Jajouka, and is completing the mixes for Bluefields Sound System, which will be released in 2012.

KBS KUWAIT UPGRADES FOUR STUDIOS WITH SOLID STATE LOGIC C10 HD COMPACT BROADCAST CONSOLES

C10 HD Streamlines Production While Improving Quality

KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT – The Kuwait Broadcast Service (KBS), a major radio broadcasting and performance facility operated by the Ministry of Information (MOI) for the government of Kuwait, has recently upgraded four studios with Solid State Logic C10 HD Compact Broadcast Consoles. MOI/KBS encompasses nine radio stations, five drama studios, four editing suites, three live music/rehearsal spaces and one large concert hall. The C10 HD consoles are part of a general move into digital production systems for the facility and are used for radio production, capturing drama presentations and editing.SSL C10 KBS Kuwait

“KBS is in the process of redesigning its studios with newer digital technology and we wanted to have the latest and best equipment to be ready for HD production and 5.1 transmission,” says Eng. Hameed Khajah, engineering director of OB and studios departments at MOI/KBS. “The C10 gives us the power to work more efficiently now and is ready to take us into the future with surround production. The C10 fits in perfectly with our move into all digital systems by giving us a powerful platform with robust feature set in a small form factor that is perfect for our re-designed studio control rooms.”

Two of the C10 consoles, each with a 24-fader frame addressing 64 DSP channels, are installed in the On-Air First Radio Channel studio and On-Air Super Station Studio to handle live-to-air radio programming for 5 different Radio Kuwait stations. Programming includes This is Kuwait, a daily live interview, news and information show; dedicated talk and news shows; programs featuring English and European music, programs focused on Kuwaiti youth supporting education and exposure to Kuwaiti heritage, as well as religious programming. The edit and drama studio consoles have 16 Faders addressing 64-channels of DSP. All consoles feature Alpha-Link and 8-RMP units. The edit and production studios also have MadiXtreme 64 I/O for DAW use.

“The C10 consoles have changed the way we approach our production workflow for our on-air, drama and ProTools® and Nuendo editing studios,” continues Eng. Khajah. “For example, the C10 gives us the power to have the settings for each program stored for instant recall. This really helps our workflow as it saves setup time. We also store the EQ and dynamics settings for the main talent, so we can now maximize the amount of time we spend optimizing the audio quality of the invited guests. User-defined presets combined with the Dialogue Automix feature that automates faders for fast-paced panel programs makes this type of production easy to accomplish. In every way, the C10 has made our production experience better.”

By using four C10 consoles supporting critical production areas, moving from studio to studio is easy on the engineering staff with the added bonus of being able to move Presets between consoles. In this way, work can be efficiently continued or completed in any C10 control room without the need to reconvene settings or appropriate patching for outboard gear.

“The C10 console establishes an effective environment for sound engineering,” states Eng. Khajah. “Our engineers enjoy being more creative by having the time to craft sound. The C10 gives us a grand synergy because it is easy to interact with the console to get superior production results, while the console gives back excellent sound quality and faster workflow. The C10 also fits in with our green initiatives, a part of our government’s mandate, as the consoles are completely self-contained, generate little heat and have low current draw. The C10 lets us do things we could not do in the past.”

Solid State Logic is the world’s leading manufacturer of analogue and digital audio consoles and provider of creative tools for music, broadcast and post production professionals. For more information about our award-winning products, please visit: www.solidstatelogic.com.

BEXEL’S CUSTOM EQUIPMENT RENTAL PACKAGE, ENGINEERING SUPPORT AND TECHNICAL SERVICES BRINGS POT OF GOLD TO BIG BREAK IRELAND

KILDARE, IRELAND, OCTOBER 31, 2011Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, supplied a state-of-the-art equipment package for the 16th season of the Golf Channel’s reality show, Big Break. Held in Kildare, Ireland, this season, the large, overseas reality production also took advantage of Bexel’s expert engineering support and technical services. Bexel has been providing equipment and services for Big Break since season four.

“As with any large scale production abroad, this shoot presented many logistical and technical challenges,” says Irene Farrelly, senior productions manager, Golf Channel Original Productions. “Mark Alexander and the Bexel team overcame each one with professionalism and the urgency needed. I have worked with Mark for several years on a variety of shoots, and their work and equipment is first class.”

The Big Break show concept pits highly skilled golfers against each other in a variety of challenges that test their physical skills and mental toughness. During Big Break Ireland, one contestant is eliminated each week, with the last person standing crowned Big Break champion.

“We have enjoyed a long, successful relationship providing broadcast rental equipment and technical services and support for the Golf Channel, and look forward to working on its Big Break series each season,” says Mark Alexander, Bexel senior account executive/technical consultant. “The Big Break productions always call for an extensive amount of equipment, we have to make sure the gear is available well in advance so our engineers can set things up to the Golf Channel’s specifications. This project also required multiple voltage adapters and converters for various power configurations in Ireland. Providing ‘weather protective’ gear for the equipment was also a must, especially with the ever-changing climate conditions in Ireland.”

For Big Break Ireland, Bexel provided seven Sony PDW-F800 XDCAM HD cameras set to 1080/29.97p. The PDW-F800 camera provides extremely high-quality HD recordings and data rates up to 50Mbps using MPEG-2 4:2:2 compressions. The accompanying HD lenses include the Fujinon HA42x9.7, HA22x7.6 and HA13x4.5 lenses. Bexel chose the Fujinon HA42x9.7 mid-range lens for its ability to provide better coverage on the longer incoming approach shots to the green. In addition, Bexel also provided TV Logic LQM-171W 17-inch LCD HD monitors, Ambient controllers with ACL-203CT tri-level sync lockit boxes and Litepanels camera lights.

“Bexel has been an integral part of my business for the past 20 years. As an engineer in charge, or a DP, I have always felt that Bexel had my back,” says Stef Butler, technical manager/engineer in charge, Golf Channel Original Productions. “Bexel was with us every step of the way—from outlining what we needed, creative thinking regarding gear choices, having the prep in terrific order and carnet preparation—I can’t see how anyone would attempt a show of this magnitude with any other rental house.”

Filmed at The K Club in Kildare, Ireland, Big Break Ireland takes place on the resort’s two championship golf courses—the Palmer Smurfit Course and the Palmer Ryder Cup Course. In addition to hosting the 2006 Ryder Cup, The K Club has also hosted 13 European Opens on the European Tour.
