Season 7 of Rachael Ray Moves to New Studio and Yamaha Consoles Move Along As Part of ‘the Mix’

BUENA PARK, Calif.—On September 17, 2012 the Rachael Ray Show will officially move to beautiful new digs for the Season 7 opener, and broadcast mixer Bob Aldridge and front of house mixer John Bates, are taking along their trusty Yamaha M7CL-48 and DM2000 Digital Consoles. Produced by CBS Television Distribution and KWP Studios, in association with Harpo Studios, Scripps Networks and Watch Entertainment, the hugely successful syndicated daytime program originally launched in the fall of 2006.

“An M7CL-48 and DM2000 are both used for the audience mix,” states Bates. “The DM2000 is the production mix desk while the M7CL is used for the music mix.” Aldridge and Bates are also using the new Dugan-MY16 card with the DM2000 to tighten up the show’s sound, and Aldridge said ‘it works great.’

“Season 1 of the Rachael Ray Show had the M7CL as the audience console and it worked quite well as both the production and music console,” says Bates. “We had 16 RF mics, some production inputs, and support for 24 channels of music inputs. Then the show decided that we should be ready to support 32 channels of music inputs and the M7CL was no longer big enough so we moved it to the monitor position. Shows rarely get smaller as they develop, and it was at that point that we brought in a Yamaha DM2000, some outboard mics preamps fed through a bunch of Yamaha MY16-AT ADAT cards, bringing us up to 56 mic inputs, and mixed both production and music on the DM2000 through the end of Season 6.”

The Rachael Ray Show set has several different locations that Rachael could be in at any point in time,” notes Bates. “We took advantage of the Yamaha DM2000 to recall different scenes depending on where in the studio we were working. The four remote layers enable us to customize the surface layout for the scene at hand. The built-in channel and bus delays allow us to really dial in the mix without the need for any outboard processing.

The number of music inputs the mixers have been asked to support has increased to 48 so the decision was made to add an additional M7CL-48 to the house position to mix music and the DM2000 becomes a production only console. “We now can split 48 mic channels between broadcast mix, FOH mix and monitor mix, a far cry from where we started,” adds Bob Aldridge.
All of the features that made the DM2000 a great fit for the show before are still in play in the new studio and Bates said it’s been fun stripping back the show and building it up again.
