Antelope Audio Orion32 Delivers Optimal Sound Quality and Reliability During Recording of Ray Fuller Performance at Buddy Guy’s Legends

Last month, the new Antelope Audio Orion32 multi-channel interface was put to the test during a live recording of blues maestro Ray Fuller at one of the premier blues club destinations in the United States: Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago. The recording, which consisted of non-stop 60 and 90-minute sets before a live audience, was captured in its entirety using the Orion32, which recorded 26 tracks of audio in 96k to a MacBook Pro running Pro Tools.

For freelance engineer Mike Picotte, the benefits of the Orion32 were immediately apparent from the moment he began setting up the remote recording rig — which was situated several flights of stairs above the venue. “I didn’t want to have to carry a lot of gear, and for this particular project, I wanted to keep my set up lean, yet powerful,” he says. Since the Orion32 is able to handle 32 tracks of 96k audio in a single rack space, Picotte was able to maintain an extremely compact set up, with zero compromise on sound quality. “I just ran a USB from the Orion32 to my laptop, and recorded the whole show,” he says. In addition to the Orion32, Picotte also had an Antelope Audio 10M Atomic Clock in his rack to maximize the fidelity of his rig even further.

Picotte, whose day job is with audio retailer Sweetwater Sound, acquired the signal by placing a splitter snake onstage so he could access all of the venue’s microphones, then supplemented the house mics with his own — creating a fully redundant set up with plenty of alternate audio source possibilities. “I wanted to have everything covered and then decide later what I actually needed, so I brought my own mic locker with me just in case,” he recalls. Picotte ran the snake up the stairs into a small room where he was able to record and monitor the performance using a Dangerous D-Box system and a pair of Sennheiser HD 380 closed back headphones.

At the preamplifier stage, Picotte employed two TRUE Precision 8s and an Audient ASP008, which he then connected to the Antelope Audio Orion32. He then recorded the entire performance over USB 2.0 at 96k to the MacBook Pro via the Orion32, without incident or interruption. “Performance-wise, the Orion32 was amazing,” Picotte recalls. “There was no lag time on the screen, and no hiccups at any point during the entire gig. I ran 26 channels at 96k without stoppage and had no issues whatsoever.”

Thanks to the flexible i/o architecture of the TRUE Precision 8, Picotte was also able to run backup audio feed to a separate system as a safety. But the backup system suffered a complete failure mid-way through while capturing audio at just 44.1k. “Next time, I will probably use another Orion32 as a backup instead of another device,” he says.

Remote recording in complete confidence

In the past, Picotte would typically record to an external drive. But with the combination of the Orion32 and the solid-state architecture of the MacBook Pro, this is no longer necessary. “Now, with all the testing that I’ve done, I record directly to the solid state drive on the MacBook via the Orion32, then immediately transfer the audio to a secondary hard drive following each set,” he explains.

Picotte had full confidence in his Orion32 well before the recording gig. “Before the Ray Fuller performance, I tested the Orion32 over MADI into my Pro Tools HD system and USB into Pro Tools natively,” he says. “Although I tested it at a 64 sample rate, I ran a 1,024 sample buffer size during the gig because there was no artist mix, therefore no need to tax the computer system.”
A great challenge for any remote recording engineer is being able to adapt to unpredictable technical environments. In this sense, the Orion proved to be the ultimate ‘Swiss Army Knife,” ready for just about any situation: “Even though I knew the capabilities of the venue well in advance, it was exciting to come to the live recording knowing that I could mix and match signals on the Orion32 if I had to,” says Picotte. “I had analog, optical and MADI i/o options all at my disposal if I needed them.”

The Orion32′s ‘True to Life’ Sound

Perhaps most importantly of all, Picotte characterizes the Orion32 tracks he captured as ‘extremely detailed and accurate.’ “There was great separation on the drums and particularly good transient response on the kick, snare and overhead,” he reports. “Some converters will soften the transients, or it will feel like they are not coming across like they do live. The Orion32 gave me the best representation of how the band actually sounded in the club, and with no coloration. All the channels were clean, and the depth and stereo imaging were outstanding.”

“Whether it is a studio or a live recording, my goal is to capture all the sonic details of a performance,” Picotte concludes. “Ray Fuller is known for his tone and I wanted to capture the band the way they sounded that night at Buddy Guy’s Legends. With the Orion32, I was able to do this and deliver a ‘true to life’ recording when it was over.”

Series-C audio frames offer optional conversion frames allowing analog-to-digital, digital-to-analog, and digital-to-digital conversion.

Four new easyPORT™ compact switching throw-down boxes support HDMI signal distribution. The EASY-2HX4B distributes or switches two HDMI inputs to four independent SDI video sources, while the companion EASY-4BX2H converts and switches up to four SDI video input feeds to two different HDMI video displays. Offered with coaxial 75 Ohm connections, the EASY-2HX4B and EASY-4BX2H can be extended up to 80m away using typical RG-6/U coax. The EASY-2HX4F and EASY-4FX2H fiber versions offer standard LC-type SFP pluggable modules, with support for distances up to 600m over multi-mode or 10km over single-mode fiber.

Built to address the growing 4K market, the new Cheetah 4K fiber optic routing switcher provides ultra-high definition video distribution up to 600m over multi-mode cable. Each 4K source is connected to an outboard easyPORT-4KX1F coax to fiber media converter that supports up to 12 Gbps per port over a single fiber to the router – and can accept 4K video at 3840×2160 and/or 4096×2160. Each input port can also be configured individually to accept up to four independent 3G-SDI signals to be transported over a signal fiber cable. Housed in only 4 RU, the compact Cheetah 4K router includes internal control for Ethernet or traditional RS-232/422 control, hot swappable matrix and I/O cards, redundant power and control, and SNMP support for third-party, high-end network management systems.

The new series of Vidblox 2K DVI dual link extenders provide an ideal long distance, multi-path solution for distributing ultra high-resolution graphics in production studios and command and control environments. Each Vidblox 2K transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) pair supports coax, fiber, or both copper/fiber connectivity, which can be used to cost effectively distribute multiple 2K video signals simultaneously in a point-to-point configuration or distributed using PESA’s 3G-SDI serial digital routing equipment.

Fast, simple, sound: the LSP 500 PRO PA system from Sennheiser

The new LSP 500 PRO PA system from audio specialist Sennheiser will set new standards in the world of sound. The wireless LSP 500 PRO will be unveiled in the U.S. at InfoComm 2013 and offers outstanding sound and simple control via an app.

This innovative wireless loudspeaker ensures that the PA system for any event can be installed in next to no time. Not only does the wireless LSP 500 PRO eliminate the need for time-consuming laying of cables, Sennheiser also provides an app that enables up to 20 loudspeakers to be remotely controlled at the same time.

User-friendly control by an app

The entire PA system is controlled by the LSP 500 PRO app, which essentially takes over the functions of a mixing console. No matter whether it is the volume, the equalizer or the delay – the Sennheiser app makes it easy to control all of the audio settings. Configurations can be set either for individual speakers or for groups of speakers as well as for the audio sources connected to them.

“The app is a genuine labour-saving device for setting up PA systems at an event,” explained Martin Gurtner, Portfolio Manager at Sennheiser’s Integrated Systems Division. “This user-friendly and efficient application makes the Sennheiser LSP 500 PRO the ideal partner for events of all sizes, such as congresses, galas or press conferences.”

Highly versatile

Each Sennheiser LSP 500 PRO can take up to three receivers for wireless microphones, and each also has a combined socket for a 6.3 mm jack plug and an XLR-3 connector for using a wired microphone. The highly versatile loudspeaker is additionally equipped with a USB connector and a Bluetooth interface as well as an AUX input and output. If more than one loudspeaker is being used, one of them can be defined as the master and then connected with the other speakers – the slaves – via a wireless link.

Every LSP 500 PRO has a built-in music player that enables music to be played directly from an external device via the USB connector or the Bluetooth interface. The music player also has a convenient recording function which allows audio input to be recorded directly on a USB device. “Whatever the application, the LSP 500 PRO PA system provides Sennheiser’s usual excellent level of audio quality, which not only guarantees optimum speech intelligibility but also offers good sound for music,” explained Martin Gurtner.

Reliable operation with two batteries

The wireless Sennheiser loudspeaker has room for two rechargeable batteries but uses only one of them to supply power at any time. That ensures reliable operation and an operating period for the LSP 500 PRO of up to seven hours. The use of a second battery also allows the battery to be removed for recharging while the speaker is still in use. The current state of charge of each of the two batteries of a loudspeaker is shown continuously by the Sennheiser app, keeping the sound engineer informed about the power supply at all times. If a battery level becomes critically low, a warning is instantly displayed.

The LSP 500 PRO is compatible with microphones from Sennheiser’s evolution wireless 100, 300 and 500 series. The speaker comes with a dust cover. A white stretch cover, a padded rugged cover and a trolley bag for secure transportation are available as accessories.

The Sennheiser LSP 500 PRO loudspeaker will be available from summer 2013, and the app can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple iTunes Store from summer onwards.

The Sennheiser Group, with its headquarters in Wedemark near Hanover, Germany, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of microphones, headphones and wireless transmission systems. The family-owned company, which was established in 1945, recorded sales of around €531 million in 2011.

Gefen Unveils New GAVA 3.0 Firmware Upgrade, Offering Advanced Automation Features for Conference Room and Commercial Applications Featuring Lutron Lighting Systems



The next generation GAVA (Gefen A/V Automation) 3.0 firmware will be shown for the first time at InfoComm, delivering more features that further simplify and enhance the automation of A/V devices and lighting in conference rooms, meeting spaces and training rooms. GAVA centralizes the control of all connected devices into a web-based interface that can be accessed at anytime using a smartphone, tablet or computer. 




As part of the new Conference Room Package, GAVA uses an existing LAN, allowing an easy integration of both mobile and traditional A/V devices connected to the network. The package includes the award-winning GAVA, Gefen’s Professional Automation Control System (PACS), Gefen’s 4×1 AV Processor with Amp, the AV Scaler Pro, and two GefenTV Conference Room Speakers. With the inclusion of the Lutron GRAFIK® Eye QSE, this package allows customizable and repeatable lighting scenarios, all automated by the integrator. In the EMEA, the package includes an 8-channel DALI-interface Grafik Eye QS. In the US, the package includes a Grafik Eye QS with 6-channels of phase-control dimmers. The QSE Interface allows Ethernet or RS-232 control of the Grafik Eye QS without requiring Lutron RadioRA2 or HomeWorks certification or software.



“One of the best features of this new free firmware upgrade is the addition of ‘event triggers’ that truly automate all aspects of the Conference Room Package,” said Orrin Charm, Automation Project Manager, Gefen. “These triggers happen behind the scenes and are totally customizable. For instance, you can program a ‘Watch Video’ trigger that, when you push the ‘Watch Video’ button on a mobile device, an in-wall Lutron RadioRA2 or a HomeWorks keypad, you immediately dim the lights, turn on the display, the entire A/V system, and lower the screen and window shades, providing you with a “one-touch” operation.”

Integrators also have the option to allow or restrict user access to the GAVA setup Wizard. Other new features include better organization of macros, assignment of macros to other GAVA buttons, and the ability to send IP or RS-232 strings from a macro without needing a Device Driver, UDP support and more. 


“Another value-added feature is the new password-protection option in GAVA,” said Charm. “Now you can create multiple secure views for different users. For example, you could design a password-protected view of a suite of conference rooms that only authorized users can access, and then you could design a simpler view of each room that all your employees can access. It opens up a lot more possibilities for both the integrator and the end user.”

The new GAVA Conference Room Package connects all A/V components using IP, IR or RS-232. GAVA provides the unifying GUI interface using an integrated HTML5 Web server and Linux processor, allowing any mobile device access to everything connected in the package. PACS is a bridge product that connects legacy devices using IR and RS-232 into the system. The 4×1 AV Processor provides additional HDMI inputs with quality audio decoding. Audio from the HDMI, coaxial, optical or stereo inputs is decoded by a 5.1 channel Dolby® Digital and Dolby® ProLogic II Surround processor. Audio can be amplified using built-in 50 watts per channel amplification or by connecting an external amplifier. When a discrete digital or analog audio input is selected, the video continues to output 1080p full HD, allowing you to watch video from the source while listening to a different audio selection. The AV Scaler Pro allows you to incorporate legacy (VGA, DVI, component and HDMI) devices with upscaling while the GefenTV speakers output nice, high quality sound.

Automation for lighting and window shades is fully supported using the Lutron GRAFIK Eye QS, which allows for complete customization of lights and shades via RS-232 or the Ethernet. The Lutron GRAFIK Eye QS is energy-efficient and can control of up to six or eight zones of lighting. LED, fluorescent and halogen lights are all supported as well as fixtures that are Lutron EcoSystem® compatible. 

All components of the GAVA Conference Room Package are controllable using any web browser, or with free updated GAVA iOS or Android 4.2 Apps, providing better system management, and a free demo mode for potential customers to see first-hand how GAVA works.

POWERSOFT DEBUTS NEW PRODUCTS TO U.S. AUDIENCE AT INFOCOMM 2013

INFOCOMM 2013, Orlando, FL, June 2013 — At InfoComm 2013, Booth #115, Powersoft will be showing several new products in the U.S. for the very first time.

Powersoft will launch M-Force(r) , the ultimate paradigm shift in low frequency applications, at InfoComm 2013. After a development cycle spanning more than four years, M-Force was publicly unveiled at the recent PL+S Show in Frankfurt, generating high levels of interest and excitement from the entire professional audio industry.

Designed specifically for loudspeaker manufacturers and powered by Powersoft proprietary Switch Mode amplification, M-Force is an innovative linear motor characterized by a moving magnet and genuine push-pull behavior. M-Force integrates perfectly with other technologies developed by Powersoft such as Differential Pressure Control (DPC(r)) already used in subwoofers using IPAL(r) technology.

Powersoft will introduce DEVA to the U.S. market at InfoComm 2013. The revolutionary new multimedia device integrates solar power, bi-directional wireless A/V communication, lighting and an extremely efficient Class D amplifier in a compact, weatherproof enclosure.

DEVA is a multifunctional device that enables audio messaging and video capturing for a wide range of applications, such as theme parks, historical monuments, public gardens, transport hubs, golf courses, swimming pools, beaches, construction sites, car parks and anywhere else where there are difficulties in distributing sound over large areas due to installation constraints and/or lack of existing communication infrastructure.

Powersoft has expanded its successful Ottocanali series, with the addition of three new high-performance 8-channel power amplifiers for fixed installations. Ottocanali 4K4, Ottocanali 8K4 and Ottocanali 12K4 have been designed to work at low or high impedance, can run at 2 ohms as a standard operational parameter and can power 70V and 100V distributed lines without the need for external transformers.

Powersoft’s unique approach to Class D amplification gives the amplifiers high output power – up to 12000W over eight channels for the largest model – and the very high sound quality which has come to be expected.
