Gand Concert Sound Pitches In At Music Festival

CHICAGO—Pitchfork Music Festival, held July 19-21 in Chicago’s Union Park, brought the best of emerging music to over 50,000 attendees. The Festival has been drawing huge sold-out crowds since it began in 2006. This year, 40 artists entertained on three stages including Bjork, Solange, Lil B, R Kelly, Savages, The Breeders, Swans, and Wire.

Gand Concert Sound of Elk Grove Village, IL, aka ‘the NEXO guys’, provided audio production for both the Red and Green stages, Red stage included 15 NEXO GEO T line array boxes per side, 16 NEXO CD18s, a Yamaha CL5 digital audio console at FOH, and a Yamaha M7CL for monitors.

The Green Stage audio set up consisted of 18 GEO Ts per side, 20 CD18s, and Yamaha PM5D-RH digital consoles for front of house and monitor mixing. NEXO PS15R2s were supplied for the both the Red Stage (passive) and Green Stage (bi-amped) along with NEXO NX4x4 amps for mains and Yamaha T5n amps for subs, front fills and monitors, along with NEXO NX241 and 242 processors. Alpha E/f and S2 side fills were used on the Green stage.

“Of all the fests in the USA, Pitchfork stands out as the place to be for fans of up and coming bands and indie’s who have established themselves as must-see acts,” says Gand President, Gary Gand. “It’s a great test of what our audio production set up centered around the NEXO systems can do. From a solo harp player to a 20 piece hardcore rap act and all points in-between, bring it on!”

“Many, many kudos to Gand from the audio folks that the artists brought, and from us,” states Mary Jones, director of Pitchfork Festival Artist Production & Artist Relations.

LIPA Graduate Chris Pawlusek Receives The 2013 MPG Prize

Chris Pawlusek has become the 2013 recipient of the Music Producers Guild Prize, which rewards the most promising student to graduate from The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) Sound Technology degree programme.

Launched in 2010, the MPG Prize brings enormous benefits to the winning student as it offers an opportunity to work alongside some of the UK’s top recording professionals. Prominent MPG Awards winners continue to be very supportive of the initiative, which also brings sponsorship opportunities from companies such as Avid and MPG benefactor Roberston Taylor Insurance Brokers.

MPG Chairman Steve Levine and MPG Education Representative Tony Platt presented Chris Pawlusek with his prize during LIPA’s annual graduation ceremony, which took place today. Also present was LIPA lead patron Sir Paul McCartney.

The aim of the Music Producers Guild Prize is to recognise the student who, in the opinion of his or her tutors, has shown the most exceptional talent, initiative, commitment and consideration to the art of music recording and production.

Jon Thornton, who heads LIPA’s three year BA (Hons) Sound Technology programme, says: “Chris’ work, particularly during his final year, demonstrated not just technical excellence, but also exceptional maturity in terms of musicality, working with others and constantly pushing for that extra one per cent in what is achievable.”

Chris Pawlusek already has some engineering experience having worked as a freelance at Far Heath Studios, Northamptonshire, since 2009. He is currently completing an EP for Liverpool band Nine Tails.

He says: “I’m really delighted to win the MPG Prize. I want to develop my production and engineering skills and this prize offers me a fantastic opportunity to do that, and to make new contacts in the audio recording industry.”

Commenting on the Prize, Tony Platt says: “We are ever mindful that the pathways into music production are very different from those that were available to established producers and engineers when we entered the industry. By directly linking graduating students who are only just starting to carve themselves a career with top professionals, we are able to provide the fortunate winner with a strong first footing. I am once again amazed by how much this year’s winner, Chris Pawlusek, has already achieved during his three years at LIPA and I am delighted that we can contribute to the next phase of what will no doubt be a glittering career.”

Winning the MPG Prize will give Chris Pawlusek the chance to develop and explore the recording techniques he has learned at LIPA and make valuable contacts within the professional sound industry. In addition to a one year associate membership to the MPG, Pawlusek will also have the opportunity to shadow producer Al O’Connell, MPG Engineer of the Year 2013, and Charlie Andrew, MPG Breakthrough Producer of the Year 2013. Pawlusek will also attend an orchestral recording session with Award-winning engineer Haydn Bendall and attend a mastering session with Matt Colton, winner of the MPG Mastering Engineer Award 2013. Studio experience will be provided by Snap! Studios, winner of the MPG Best Studio Award 2013, and Pawlusek’s technical expertise will be enhanced by a day at Avid’s UK headquarters where he will receive in-depth tuition on Avid’s flagship D-Control console and the System 5 Fusion.

Robertson Taylor has offered to contribute towards the cost of Pawlusek’s travel and accommodation expenses while he is taking up these opportunities, and throughout the year he will be mentored by various MPG members including Steve Levine, Nicky Graham, Tony Platt and Mick Glossop.

Bose® Professional Systems Brings Framingham, Massachusetts’ Historic Nevins Hall the Great Sound It Had Waited Decades For

1930s-era venue had always presented a challenge for clear, intelligible sound, until Bose® RoomMatch® and PowerMatch® products were installed

Framingham, Massachusetts, July 24, 2013 – Historic Nevins Hall, located in the Memorial Building in downtown Framingham, Massachusetts, was the site for many a big-band concert in the 1930s and 40s, as well as classical concerts, a visit from President Clinton in 1994, and various corporate shows, holiday parties and other events over the course of more than 80 years. What it never managed to achieve, however, was quality sound befitting its wide range of applications. Charles Crane, Sales Engineer with Adtech Systems, an AV systems integrator in nearby Sudbury, says while the venue’s management had tried several times over the decades to add sound systems, none had ever been able to address the hall’s reverberance and architectural nuances. That is, until Adtech brought in RoomMatch® loudspeakers and PowerMatch® amplifiers from Bose® Professional Systems Division. In mid-March, Adtech hung two Bose RoomMatch arrays, each consisting of (in ascending order) two RM12020’s, one RM9020, one RM7010 and one RM5505 loudspeaker, as well as an RMS215 subwoofer at the top of the array. These, along with under-balcony fill speakers, are powered by six Bose PowerMatch PM8500N amplifiers and use a Bose ControlSpace® ESP-88 DSP controller to comprehensively cover Nevins Hall’s 1,700 seats. For the first time, this venerable venue has full-range, articulate, intelligible sound that works for speech and music.

Crane explains that the new system needed to both address the space’s acoustical issues and look forward, as the venue’s management wants the facility to continue to appeal to a wide range of customers, including concert promoters. He states, “The room was always challenging in terms of its acoustics; it took a custom engineered sound system to deal with it, and that was the Bose RoomMatch and PowerMatch system,” he says. “It’s the only solution that could have its arrays perfectly match the coverage patterns needed for this room. What they have now is what I’d call a ‘rider-friendly’ sound system – it’s one that touring music artists will find meets their needs and specifications. The system has made for a very happy customer.”

EARS of Chicago Hosts Carl Tatz Event at Soundscape Studios

- Studio designer and PhantomFocus™ System creator Carl Tatz gives near-field monitoring tutorial at Chicago’s Soundscape Studios during Engineering And Recording Society of Chicago (EARS) event -

Nashville, TN: TEC Award-nominated studio designer and PhantomFocus™ System (PFS™) creator Carl Tatz, principal of Carl Tatz Design LLC (CTD), recently spoke to an audience of fifty-plus members of the Engineer And Recording Society of Chicago (EARS) at Chicago’s Soundscape Studios about the realities of near-field monitoring. Through graphs, illustrations and ultimately a PFS listening session, Tatz was able to open attendees’ eyes and ears to little-known frequency anomalies inherent in stand- and console-mounted near-field monitors and their solutions through the acclaimed PFS.

“People are still buzzing about the meeting, and lots of questions are flying around. Carl’s presentation was truly informative and eye-opening (or rather ‘ear-opening’). All around just great,” comments EARS co-president, engineer and JoyRide Recording Studio owner Blaise Barton.

Continues EARS co-president Reid Hyams, engineer and principal of X-Art Entertainment, “Carl’s presentation was brilliant – well received and most appreciated by everyone!”

Carl Tatz states, “It’s very gratifying to be able to share this heretofore unavailable knowledge to audio professionals who can take some advantage of it even without the PFS.”

Following the lecture, participants had the unique opportunity to audition the Carl Tatz Design PhantomFocus System in Soundscape’s Studio A control room and experience the information presented in the lecture. Veteran engineer and Urban Guerrilla Engineers principal Danny Leake (Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, Sting) exclaimed, “The PhantomFocus System is extraordinary in its power, accuracy and detail. I had the advantage of hearing Mike’s room before Carl’s PFS….it was night and day. What sounded ‘soft focused’ before was brought into brilliant clarity. I cannot praise the PhantomFocus System enough.”

Engineer and Soundscape Studios owner Michael Kolar sums up his PFS experience: “When you can mix from instinct and taste as opposed to compensating for playback anomalies, the sky is the limit. When it’s right on the PhantomFocus System, it’s right everywhere.”

Bose® Introduces RoomMatch® Utility RMU208 Small-Format Loudspeaker

The RoomMatch® Utility RMU208 loudspeaker is designed for use in high-quality foreground music, under-balcony, zone fill, and vocal-range floor monitor applications

Framingham, Massachusetts, July 23, 2013 – Bose® Professional Systems Division has expanded its RoomMatch® range of array module loudspeakers with the RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format sound-reinforcement loudspeaker. The RMU208 is designed for use in high-quality foreground music, under-balcony, zone fill and vocal-range floor monitor applications in performing arts centers, civic auditoriums, houses of worship, secondary education and college auditoriums, dance clubs, hospitality and more.

The loudspeaker features a single Bose EMB2 compression driver (with 2.0-inch voice coil) to provide mid/high-frequency voicing similar to the RoomMatch full-range array modules. The EMB2 driver features a patented phase plug that lowers distortion and allows the use of a lower crossover frequency to improve vocal sound quality.

Dual Bose LF8 8-inch woofers (with 2.0-inch, extended-excursion voice coils) provide full-range output down to 80 Hz (+/-3 dB), and a 90° x 60° constant-directivity high-frequency horn provides wide, even coverage and may be rotated 90° in the enclosure.

The RMU208’s Quasi-3-way passive crossover with separate filters for each transducer provides uniform frequency and polar response; the 80-16,000 Hz frequency response and 125 dB maximum peak SPL allow for use in high-performance system designs. Long-term continuous power handling is 300W and peak power handling is 1200W.

The enclosure is constructed of baltic birch plywood with a 2-part polyurethane coating to resist scratches and scuffs. The multi-angle cabinet design allows for flexible use in varied applications, and the system includes a U-bracket and four additional M8 threaded inserts on the enclosure’s rear surface provide additional mounting flexibility.

The new RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format loudspeakers can be powered by Bose PowerMatch® amplifiers, or any professional amplifier with the appropriate power rating. The RMU208 loudspeaker will be available through authorized Bose dealers beginning in October 2013. For more information please visit http://pro.Bose.com.

Unreel Introduces UX VS Lite for Trackless Virtual Sets

Delivers a “No Ceiling” Approach

Unreel, an industry leader in Virtual-Set (VS) and Augmented-Reality (AR) solutions for broadcast television, announces the availability of UX VS Lite, a new member of its UX product line, designed to support trackless virtual sets. UX VS Lite is a full-featured, easy-to-use product for customers seeking a low-cost entry point into the world of virtual sets. UX VS Lite provides a “no ceiling” upgrade path, enabling its users to smoothly transition to fully tracked, multi-camera VS or AR solutions while preserving their software and training investments.

The objective of UX VS Lite is to deliver an affordable trackless virtual set control system that leverages all of the strengths of the flagship Unreel Xperience, notably its ease-of-use and richness of features, while leaving open the option to move into more sophisticated tracked solutions. UX VS Lite users can easily upgrade to the full UX VS product for both virtual sets and augmented reality – leveraging the range of camera tracking options it provides – should their requirements grow or change. This approach enables customers to get into the game without breaking the bank, while also eliminating the risk of being locked into an entry-level product with limited features.

“Our singular business focus is virtual sets and augmented reality, and we’re pleased to be able to now offer a complete range of UX products,” said Paul Lacombe, CEO of Unreel. “We’re looking forward to growing our product capabilities as this technology becomes mainstream over the next several years.”

UX VS Lite is designed to work with the Ross Video’s powerful XPression 3D graphics engine. Unreel’s UX VS Lite touchscreen user interface enables customers to easily setup and control a full 3D virtual set. Within this environment, UX VS Lite provides customers with the ability to: create animated camera moves; move, scale, and animate virtual objects; trigger complex multi-step animations; and place stills, movies, and/or live video into the scene.

“We’re excited that Unreel is launching UX VS Lite to complement their current UX AR and UX VS products,” said Brian Olson, Director of Graphics Marketing Product Management at Ross Video. “We believe in providing our customers with the products they want, with a growth path to the future, and Unreel’s UX product line now fulfills that need.”

UX VS Lite has proven the perfect fit for top systems integrator Integrated Media Technologies (IMT). IMT is leveraging Unreel’s UX VS Lite to develop broadcast training centers with multiple virtual set designs for a Fortune 15 client. Using Unreel’s UX VS Lite and Ross Video’s XPression graphics engine, the client is able to start with a single camera, non-tracking system with an easy growth path to a complete multi-camera tracked VS system in the future – all with minimal operator learning curve and simple system upgrades.

“We’re really pleased with being able to offer our Fortune 15 customer a virtual set system they can grow into,” said Chandos Mahon, VP of Sales, IMT. “Working with Unreel has been great. They assisted our design team in developing three virtual sets for our client, and have instructed our commissioning and training teams in operations. It’s been a great partnership.”

Jünger Audio Redefines Audio Processing at IBC 2013

Dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will use the IBC 2013 platform (Hall 10, Stand A49) to announce a new direction of creating solution based packages for its entire product range – one that is designed to make it much easier for customers to identify the exact processing solution they are looking for.

“As there is now a trend among some of our customers to use products like the T*AP (Television Audio Processor) for applications such as radio or PA, we decided to separate processing hardware from the feature set,” says Jünger Audio’s Managing Director Peter Pörs. “This change acknowledges the way in which many of our customers are working and allows Jünger Audio’s highly recognized functionality packages previously known as T*AP and M*AP to live on in common hardware.”

The new strategy will see Jünger Audio’s key hardware products marketed as universal processing platforms, with each one capable of handling transcoding and routing, as well as audio processing, and offering various ways of control including through automation or third party equipment. Instead of specific product names such as T*AP, M*AP and V*AP, Jünger Audio will now use these names to identify application packages. Once customers have chosen a processor with the right channel count and specified the application area they want to address (radio, TV, production, post production etc.), Jünger Audio will deliver the relevant software package with the audio processor box of choice to create a solution that exactly matches the customer’s needs.

“By using a universal processing platform, the new modularity of our product range will get as close as possible to each customer’s workflow,” Peter Pörs says. “Managing audio loudness with our renowned non-destructive Level Magic™ algorithm will be one of many features, along with 3G, HD and SD SDI embedded audio handling and high quality limiters, compressors, delays and equalisers. This modularity concept will also allow for specific coding hardware to decode, encode or transcode Dolby®-E, Dolby®-D (AC-3) and Dolby® Digital plus (E-AC-3), as well as HE-AAC formats.”

Pörs adds that the proliferation of distribution formats has made audio quality control during production more important than ever.

“In the past it might have been sufficient to monitor only the main mix, ignoring all transport coding and metadata implications,” he says. “But with all the simulcast formats in use today, the production team needs to simulate the home listening experience by real time metadata emulation. Adding this functionality to a hardware based monitoring controller, combined with loudness measurement and logging features, is the feature set of our QC and production monitoring solution M*AP.

“We are clearly refocusing on production and the fantastic first feedback we have received for our new voice processor V*AP evidently signals that we’re on the right track with our range of products. The V*AP offers all the processing arsenal you need for highest quality voice processing including mic preamps, compressors, expanders, limiters, and voice optimized equalizers. The V*AP also includes a voice optimized version of Spectral Signature, a process using individual spectral reference footprints as a real-time comparison reference for incoming audio, adding filtering only if it is necessary to generate spectral consistency.”

Pörs adds that the company’s extensive product range will now include a plug-in version of Level Magic™ in native plugin formats (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX, Audiosuite, etc.) for MAC and PC, 32- and 64-bit systems. This will be launched at IBC 2013.

“For the first time ever it will be possible for production staff using equipment such as Pro Tools to control audio loudness using our Level Magic™ algorithm,” he says. The addition of a plug-in to our range means that, from production right though to transmission, broadcasters can use Level Magic™ processing throughout their entire production and broadcasting chain.”

If you would like more information about Junger Audio’s universal processing platforms, please visit the company in Hall 10, Stand A49.

Stanco Productions Covers Fair St. Louis With Martin Audio

Fair St. Louis, “America’s Biggest Birthday Party,” was celebrated under the city’s iconic Arch for the last time before a two-year renovation, with Stanco Productions providing audio, video and lighting for the fourth year in a row.

To ensure superior audio coverage throughout the fairgrounds for this year’s featured acts Trace Adkins, Brett Michaels and Counting Crows, Stanco chose a Martin Audio rig consisting of 16 W8LC per side with 12 W8LM and 4 W8LMD downfill cabinets a side for outfill. Crown amplification and AVID Venue Profile consoles were also used for FOH and Monitors.

Stanco’s crew for this year’s festivities included Sam Wehrmeyer, Technical Director with FOH and Monitor engineers Justin Slazas and Brennan Houser.

Asked about challenges in providing audio for the Fair, Wehrmeyer responded, “The only real issue was getting enough PA hung from the roof and staying with weight limits. The W8LC is the perfect solution for this. Its light weight and high output allows us to hang more boxes for better coverage than other line array systems.

“Once again the client told us they continue to be impressed with the sound of the rig,” Sam concluded. “They told us Martin Audio is the best sound they’ve heard.”
