Lady Antebellum Expands Tour and Sennheiser Endorsement

Old Lyme, Conn.– February 21, 2012: Few need an introduction to Lady Antebellum, who, in the four short years since its formation, has won six Grammys, scored six number one hits on country radio, has sold over six million albums across the globe and is currently on its 2012 Own The Nightworld tour. Sennheiser is supporting the tour with equipment, such as SKM 5200-II wireless vocal microphones and ew 300 IEM G3 wireless personal monitors, along with the expertise to ensure that no glitches ever distract from Lady Antebellum’s spellbinding performance. With an agreement brokered by Tim Moore, artist relations manager for Sennheiser USA, and Kristy Jo Winkler, Sennheiser global relations manager for the Americas and Canada, reigning Country Music Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum is now a Sennheiser Global Relations endorsed artist.

FOH engineer Brett “Scoop” Blanden was careful to select the perfect wireless vocal mic for the tour. “The stage setup includes a forty-foot runway that extends well in front of the house PA,” he said. “I needed a microphone and a capsule that would be well-suited to all six vocalists – who might all be on that runway at the same time! By using the same capsule, with the same frequency response and polar pattern, on all six mics, I am able to tune the PA without fear of the unpredictable interactions that can occur when different capsules are open on stage.” Blanden selected the Sennheiser MD 5235 dynamic capsule, which features a floating directivity that is super-cardioid at high frequencies and cardioid at low frequencies. The Sennheiser SKM 5200-II handheld RF transmitter completes the vocal setup, and two additional SKM 5200-II/MD 5235 combinations go to the opening acts.

Monitor engineer Peter Bowman organizes the RF channels for the show. “I have had zero RF issues since we made the switch to the Sennheiser 5000 series on vocals,” he said. “In addition, I’m also very happy with how useful the Command Function is for Lady Antebellum. Whether they need the guitar turned down or a cup of tea, they can communicate with ease from any point on the stage.”

Instrument mics include the Sennheiser e 901 on kick, the e 904 on rack toms, the e 902 on the floor tom, and a small diaphragm e 614 on the ride. “I’m particularly fond of the e 904 and e 902 on the toms,” said Blanden, who is himself a drummer. “I love the tonal picture of those dynamic mics – it’s familiar and comfortable to me. The frequency response and transient response are perfect. I can run those inputs flat on my channel strip because all the right color is captured by the mic. The convenient mounting hardware on the e 904 is also nice.” For all three guitar cabinets on stage, Blanden uses the classic Sennheiser MD 421-II. “What a standard! Even in my studio days,” he said, “I was always a fan of the MD 421 on guitars. It has the perfect combination of top-end bite and low-end growl to deliver the ideal rock ‘n roll guitar sound.”

In addition to the eight Sennheiser SKM 5200-IIs for vocals (and their associated command channels), Bowman manages eight Sennheiser EK 300 IEM G3 stereo wireless personal monitors, for a total of twenty-eight wireless frequencies. “I set them myself every day,” he said. “And with the scanning options available on both the G3 and 5000 series, that process is fairly simple. I love that when the monitor system is networked together, I have the ability to set all the transmitters to new frequencies using just one bodypack. I usually scan one bodypack during the day, even before I get power to monitor world, and then use it later to synch up all the transmitters.” For antennas, Bowman uses one Sennheiser paddle antenna and one Sennheiser A 5000?CP circularly polarized antenna. “Although I know there are several valid approaches, this system works well for me,” he said. “Our RF performance has been perfect.”

Even the band’s guitars and bass benefit from Sennheiser wireless technology. To navigate the tour’s large stage with the crowd-pleasing confidence that a wire won’t allow, every fretted instrument is equipped with a Sennheiser ew 572 G3 wireless transmitter, save for one acoustic guitar which uses an ew 572 G2 unit. There are eleven units in all. “Our RF performance has been absolutely flawless,” said guitar tech Steve Castro, who formerly worked with Sugarland. “We all work together to maintain clean channels. If someone gets stepped on, it’s a simple matter to use the scan feature to dial in a new clean channel.”

“The Sennheiser team has really gone above and beyond for us,” said Blanden. “Tim Moore has been there for us during the last four years. Throughout our trips to Australia, Europe and various television performances, Sennheiser is the gear we rely on for consistency wherever we are performing.”

Winkler added, “For decades, Sennheiser has supported emerging artists as well as mega-stars. All of us on the Global Relations team welcome Lady Antebellum to this special tier of artists and congratulate them on their creativity, musicianship, performance excellence, and industry dedication.”

Waves Audio Releases InPhase Plugin

— New Plugin Corrects Track Phasing and Alignment Issues —

KNOXVILLE, TN, February 21, 2012 — Waves Audio, the industry-leading developer of professional audio digital signal processing technologies, is now shipping its InPhase plugin. Designed for recording, mix, mastering and live FOH/monitoring engineers, InPhase has been developed to correct phasing issues between tracks. Phasing can cause drops in volume and wreak havoc on frequency response and stereo image; InPhase gives users a comprehensive tool to correct such problems.

As many engineers and producers know, phasing problems are encountered during all stages of the production process:

In recording, when multiple sources such as microphones and direct signals are used to capture the same sound (e.g., individual drums and drum overheads, guitars recorded using both an amp and DI, amps recorded using multiple mics, etc.).
In mixing, when phase issues that were not addressed during the recording process need to be corrected.
In mastering, when the stereo mix has phasing issues.

Even small timing differences can cause subtle drops in volume as well as reduced punch and clarity. Waves’ InPhase gives users the power to align their tracks and restore phase coherence.

InPhase is the ultimate phase correction plugin, featuring high resolution dual waveform displays with up-to-sample resolution zoom; phase shift filters with adjustable frequency and Q; and an intuitive correlation meter, which shows users just how much they are in or out of phase. Users can move their waveforms manually or using the delay control, and even align them in relation to a sidechain input. The phase shift curve window shows users the phase shift curve across the frequency line; the correlation meter shows to what extent tracks are in- or out-of-phase; and the plugin features dual second-order allpass filters. InPhase includes mono, stereo, and dedicated live components, plus InPhase LT, a simplified version that gives you easy access to creative phase manipulation.

InPhase Controls:

Alpha and Beta processing sections.
Process controls let us choose what to process.
Activity LED shows when there is input signal activity.

Union Editorial Takes Commercials Into 5.1 Surround with Genelec Monitoring

— From Fiat to Chevy, Diet Pepsi to McDonald’s, Los Angeles commercial post facility Union Editorial is working in the high end of broadcast post production, and their recent acquisition of a 5.1 surround monitoring array of Genelec 8250A and 8240A Bi-Amplified DSP Monitors and a 7260A Active DSP Subwoofer will help keep them there —

NATICK, MA, February 21, 2012 — Prime-time broadcast commercials have followed sports and entertainment programming into the domain of discrete 5.1 surround sound. That has raised the bar for post production facilities in that business, and those looking to produce the best have found Genelec Active Monitors to be the optimal solution. That’s what Union Editorial discovered when it recently needed to upgrade the monitoring in the larger of its two audio production and mixing studios. The facility regularly handles high-end agency clients, including Chevy, McDonald’s, Fiat and Diet Pepsi, and a hit commercial featured on the 2011 Super Bowl broadcast, Volkswagen’s “The Force” (which won five AICP Awards), as well as its sequel at the 2012 Super Bowl. And the L.A.-based firm also does a fair share of feature film work and movie trailers, so it needs 5.1 monitoring that can cover the gamut of media needs. And that’s just what they now have, thanks to a new monitoring system that consists of three Genelec 8250A Bi-Amplified DSP Monitors for the L-C-R array, a pair of Genelec 8240A Bi-Amplified DSP Monitors for the left and right rear surrounds, and a Genelec 7260A Active DSP Subwoofer. The system was purchased from Universal City’s RSPE Audio Solutions and installed late last year.

Senior Sound engineer Milos Zivkovic had been a fan of Genelec performance for some time, and when the upgrade was approved, he whole-heartedly endorsed going for Genelecs. “We were looking for a speaker that could serve as a good mid-field monitor — not too big and not too small, because we have a pretty sizeable control room,” he explains. “I decided to go with the 8200 Series because they are just the right size and they also come with a lot of great features like the Genelec AutoCal™ automatic calibration system. Having things like an adjustable crossover in a speaker is fantastic. But the bottom line on the Genelec speakers is their clarity. You can hear everything and hear it accurately and without coloration. Clients are always judging our facility based on what they hear at other studios, and they know that Genelecs have got a reputation around Hollywood for being the best. That’s a reputation we like being a part of.”

An East Hampton Showcase By WSDG MonkMusic Studios

Grammy Winner Cynthia Daniels Debuts New Recording /Mixing Complex

EAST HAMPTON, NY: Multi-Grammy winning engineer Cynthia Daniels, has added MonkMusic a sophisticated recording studio to her East Hampton home. Catering to a first-tier client base, which includes ‘local’ residents Paul McCartney and Alec Baldwin required superb acoustics and elegant aesthetics. To meet these goals, Daniels reached out to Walters-Storyk Design Group .

“I was on a fast track to get up and running as quickly as possible,” Daniels says. “I’ve worked in a number of WSDG studios, and was very familiar with their credentials. On his first site visit, in October 2010, WSDG principal John Storyk assured me that ‘we would never be waiting for drawings, design elements or architectural issues.’ And,” she adds, “WSDG was on the mark throughout the process. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

“Our client base ranges from high energy rock sessions where we spend hours in the high volume stratosphere to jazz, orchestral, pop, ADR for film and TV, and of course, narration recording.” Daniels explains. “Because my home is set in a suburban/rural area, we needed to be sensitive to sound leakage both into and out of the studio. We needed sand-filled cinderblock wall construction, along with lots of soundproof windows and sliding glass doors for complete isolation and to take advantage of the East End’s beautiful natural light.”

MonkMusic is a 650 sq. ft, state-of-the art recording/mixing studio housed in a new, ground-up wing attached to Daniels’ home. Although hardly the norm in residential construction in the Hamptons, the addition was built with a decoupled concrete floor system, created for optimal isolation. The complex includes: live, isolation booth and mixing rooms; 5.1 Genelec DSP monitors; a hybrid AVID console; fully digital and analog signal processing. And, a full complement of microphones, preamps, instruments, amplifiers and outboard gear.

WSDG project manager Matt Ballos reports the studio design is based on a combination of optimal room proportion, membrane absorbers used for critical low frequency room respons, and specifically placed diffusers (in some instances transparent), for high frequency reflection control. Allowing the studio suite to relate to the home and to the beautiful Hamptons surroundings was very important to Cynthia and to the final design. Cynthia collaborated with WSDG associate Judy Elliot-Brown of Rocket Science and Mike Donahower on the critical wiring program and systems integration/installation.

“I’ve known Judy for years, she is an absolute wizard at her job,” Daniels says. “Collaborating with her and Mike was one of the best parts of this project. WSDG was also highly recommended by Alan Silverman, my first-call mastering engineer, and former mentor from my A&R Recording days,” Daniels adds. “There was never a doubt about my decision.”

Since opening MonkMusic Studios Cynthia Daniels has worked with such artists as: Barbara Cook, Randy Brecker, veteran rocker Joe Delia, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julie Andrews and Bob Balaban

Major 3D Sound Installation Kicks Off With HARMAN’s JBL PRX612M Speaker System

NORTHRIDGE, California – The University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) kicked off its prestigious and innovative audio installation of “Metal Machine 3: The Creation of the Universe” with an appearance by Lou Reed, American rock superstar.

In order to provide the unique 3D sound necessary for the event, Arup, specializing in acoustic consulting, installed 12 of HARMAN’s JBL PRX612M compact powered speakers, arrayed spherically to create a fully immersive 3D sound environment.

The exhibition will run from January 27- April 15, 2012, and is free and open to the public with no reservation required. The show kicked off with legendary musician Lou Reed and producer Bob Ezrin in conversation, giving voice to their thoughts, processes and motivation behind their work.

The exhibit allows museum visitors to hear a groundbreaking composition as Mr. Reed once heard it himself while performing onstage. This has been made possible through the collaboration and hard work of recording and reproduction specialists at Arum, using their “ambisonic” process perfected in the Arup SoundLab®.

Many aspects of Reed’s original work will be present such as his mixed over-modulated feedback and guitar effects at varying speeds to create an ebb and flow of organic atonality that is only experienced while on stage. The modulated din of this deep sound flow becomes meditative noise art that spans over the course of the hour-long recording. In order to enhance sound quality chairs will be strategically placed so audience members can gain the full sonic experience.

Paul Chavez, Director of Systems Applications for HARMAN Professional states, “We are pleased to provide the sound for this special event. The PRX612M speakers are perfect for this application as they provide quality sound to support the 3D environment and the goal of the overall exhibition.”

The University Art Museum at California State University, Long Beach is open: Mon-Sun: 12-5pm, Thur: 12-8pm, and closed Mondays and all University holidays. For more information please visit: http://www.csulb.edu/org/uam

Splash

Look Solutions’ Unique hazers are playing an essential role in the dance club scene nationwide thanks to John Lyons Systems. A company that has transformed nightlife in top destinations across the country, John Lyons Systems specializes in the sales, design and installation of audio systems.

“We always specify Look’s Unique hazers for any venue that requires atmospherics,” says award-winning lighting designer Richard Worboys. “Look hazers are first and foremost reliable. They offer an amount of control that other systems don’t have, and the water-based fluid is kind to the venues and doesn’t produce any residue. They’re better than other machines on the market for that reason alone.”

Worboys says the Unique hazers are great for providing “an extra boost” to clubs such as Surrender in the Encore Beach Club at Encore Wynn, Las Vegas; One Oak clubs in New York and in the Mirage, Las Vegas; Haze at the Aria Hotel in City Center, Las Vegas; and John Lyons Systems’ own club in Hollywood.

The Unique2 haze machine offers minimal warm up time, minimal noise and minimal fluid consumption. Its new, more efficient fan quickly distributes haze in a room, and its variable output can achieve any desired effect from the finest mist to a thick haze similar to fog.

In addition to the Unique hazers’ performance, Worboys gives kudos to Look Solutions’ customer service. “It’s very responsive. We have set up an automated monthly delivery of fluids that’s been very reliable. It’s a great service.”
