MSI Lines Comic-Con 2013 Panels With HARMAN’s AKG Microphones As Celebrities Talk TV, Movies And Comics

VIENNA, Austria – As die-hard comic fans flooded the San Diego Convention Center, Comic-Con 2013 hosted more than 100,000 visitors as well as hundreds of celebrity guests discussing their latest movie roles and ideas surrounding the comic universe. During numerous panels, stars such as Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford addressed questions from the audience through HARMAN’s AKG D5 microphones.

Provided by San Diego-based MSI Production Services, the D5 microphones were deployed by audio designer Rob Wisley and Eric Stahlhammer. HARMAN’s Ken Freeman, Senior Manager, Business Development, Installed Sound, was onsite to assist with the deployment. Wisley stated, “The D5’s performed very well, especially for this application, where a smooth, wide frequency response was needed in addition to a well-balanced low end for the speakers.”

Comic-Con panels range from upfront, star-studded talks and how-to video game tutorials, to histories of characters and story lines and Q & A sessions. With such a massive following and demand for seats in the auditoriums, the clarity of the microphones and audio signal were a major priority among the event organizers.

“We understand the importance of the Comic-Con convention, where the support of the fans and other participants help make this international event such a success, so it was important to support the convention speakers with reliable and high quality sound,” continued Wisley. “The D5’s performed as expected and allowed each fan to take in valuable information without missing a word.”

Composer Nick Murray Finds Versatility with HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Total Bundle

SANTA MONICA, California – Composer and Producer Nick Murray has had his music featured on numerous television shows and movie trailers, including Angels & Demons, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Looper and most recently The Lone Ranger. Murray is currently the CEO, Founder, and Executive Producer at switch., an artist driven trailer music production company based in Santa Monica, CA. Murray started on HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM 91 rack-mounted unit about five years ago and has since upgraded to the Lexicon PCM Total Bundle reverb/effects plug-in.

“I’ve been a Lexicon user for about five years now and quickly fell in love with the Lexicon sound,” explains Murray. “I do a lot of TV music, and in the TV world, you need to compose and produce music very fast. So I primarily use the plug-ins now because they allow me to work really fast and pull up any sound or flavor that I want without disrupting my workflow.”

Murray’s company, switch., just finished their fifth album, entitled “Synthetica,” that is meant for horror movie trailers. His composing style relies heavily on production, taking simple sounds and turning them into something unique that no one has heard before. “To achieve this I am constantly on the hunt for the latest production plug-ins and tools,” said Murray.

“As with any type of music gear, having multiple options provides more opportunities to create,” commented Murray. “One Lexicon preset I often went back to on this project is ‘Random Hall.’ It has that great Lexicon tail that has enough carry over from the original input and sounds great in the overall mix.”

The debate between hardware and software plugins, Murray believes, is dead. He loves the ability to have the hands-on feel of physically turning knobs on hardware, yet, he feels that hardware is a thing of the past and plug-ins are the future. As composers today have grown into producers, mix engineers, editors, and writers as well, they need quality sound that does not slow them down or impede the creative process.

Commenting on his choice of Lexicon over other plug-ins available, Murray said, “For me it’s about versatility. Lexicon is a legendary company in the professional audio world. As new companies pop up, I often explore those as well, but going back to tried and true sounds is what often sounds best. Having both options suits me best. I like how I know what it’s going to sound like. It’s an old friend that I can rely on!”

“We are lucky to work with someone of Nick’s caliber. It truly shows the versatility of our plug-ins when an artist can go from movie work to making a fantastic record using one software suite,” added Noel Larson, Market Manager for Recording, Tour and Portable PA at HARMAN Signal Processing.

Maidstone Studios Upgrades Studio 2 with HARMAN’s Studer Vista 5 Console

MAIDSTONE, United Kingdom – Maidstone Studios, the UK’s largest independent TV facility, recently completed an HD-upgrade to its Studio 2, which included the installation of a HARMAN Studer Vista 5 digital audio console.
An essential part of the upgrade to HD was the audio system, and with a tight timescale of just under thre weeks to refurbish the studios including a large amount of HD cabling and gallery monitoring, it was paramount that a seamless transition in operations was achieved.

“With a Studer Vista 8 already installed for some years in Studio 1, it made sense to provide commonality of operation across studios so the Vista 5 was a logical choice,” said Rowland Kinch, CEO of Maidstone Studios. ”We’ve been very happy with Studer and the support they give us. We love the Vista’s instant snapshot functions and it’s a great live production platform for us. The consoles also share common hardware and cards, so support is made much easier for us.”

Kinch also praises the new VistaMix automatic microphone mixing software update for the Vista console, which has made a huge difference for the sound teams on unscripted panel and game shows such as Victory TV’s “Draw It” and ITV’s ”Take Me Out.”

“The Sound Supervisors love having this inbuilt facility at their fingertips, and think it’s fantastic!”
Kinch concluded, “Having the Vista consoles has really enhanced our opportunities and abilities to win program productions from major broadcast organisations who are familiar with the Studer platforms.”

SIM2 Miami Road Show Exceeds Expectations

Miramar, Florida—July 2013—SIM2’s top dealer partners attending the SIM2 Road Show in Miami are calling the first two days of the three-day tour a resounding success. The exclusive event is designed to provide dealers with an unprecedented opportunity to view some of the company’s most advanced technological achievements to date—the CINEMAQUATTRO, SIRIO, M.150, LUMIS, NERO, and the limited-edition FUORISERIE home cinema projectors.

Bill Petters, of Sound Components, in Miami, said of the event, “What impressed me the most is the wide range of products that SIM2 has come to market with. Not only are the products extremely high performance, but they can be installed by integrators like our company, and are practical for end users—simple solutions with various price points. depending on the level of performance a client wants to get into. SIM2 has a very nice, wide range, from entry level to state of the art—it’s a great solution for us.” Bill’s favorite was the M.150. “The depth of field, color saturation, black levels, and brightness were simply outstanding.”

Stan Beran, of Sound Performance, in Miami, said, “First, I’m impressed with the amount of projectors on display, starting from a couple-hundred thousand to things more reasonable, around 10 to 12 thousand. What really knocked me out is the [M.150] LED projector, for people who like fine lines and details—it’s probably the best one I’ve ever seen. If you want the punch and attack, having the double stack SIRIO is a knockout for people—even one by itself is very bright.”

SIM2's CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K 3-Chip DLP Home Cinema Projector

The star of the show was SIM2’s CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K DLP 3-Chip Home Cinema Projector. Some of the key specifications are: three 4K (4096 x 2160), 1.38” DLP chipsets, up to 25,000 ANSI Lumens; Triple Flash 3D Technology; SIM2’s Exclusive High Contrast and Colorimetry Profiles; a user-replaceable Xenon Bubble Lamp; remote monitoring and so much more.

“With a third day yet to be completed, we have already exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance and excitement for this event,” said Maurizio Cini, CEO and President of SIM2. “Our guests in Miami were among the first in the U.S. to witness the amazing power of full 4K resolution from the CINEMAQUATTRO, along with a comprehensive demonstration of our full line of solutions. Based on the feedback from those attending, and building on the anticipated success of additional tour stops, we expect to see a dramatic growth in business over the remainder of 2013—even surpassing the positive trend we’ve seen in the past quarter.”

The 2013 SIM2 Road Show represents an extraordinary business opportunity for SIM2 partners, with the opportunity for one-on-one meetings with key company executives, crucial forecasting information and special product demonstrations. The U.S. portion of the tour includes additional stops in Los Angeles, August 20-22, and in New York City, September 3-5.

Clearwing Kicks out the Jams at Summerfest with L-ACOUSTICS

World’s largest music festival heard via K1, KARA, KUDO and ARCS WIFO

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — Recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest music festival for the past 15 consecutive years, Milwaukee’s Summerfest truly knows how to throw a party. Serving up a smorgasbord of brats, brews and bands — over 700 national and regional acts performing on 11 stages — this year’s “Big Gig” at Henry W. Maier Festival Park on the city’s Lake Michigan shoreline drew more than 840,000 visitors over its 11-day run in late June and early July.

To handle audio production duties for this year’s 46th annual bash, Milwaukee World Festival, the non-profit organization that runs the event, once again turned to local provider Clearwing Productions, which specified the use of more than 340 L-ACOUSTICS loudspeaker enclosures for FOH throughout the grounds. more

Robert Juliat Cyrano Followspots Help Light Up “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular” on the Fourth of July

It wouldn’t be the Fourth of July without the “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular,” and Robert Juliat Cyrano followspots helped light up the annual event, which was televised live from the Charles River Esplanade.

The free outdoor concert marked its fortieth anniversary. The event draws over 500,000 people each year to the Boston and Cambridge sides of the Charles River. Audiences wait with anticipation to hear the Boston Pops’ now classic rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” with real cannons, church bells and fireworks; “The Stars and Stripes Forever” with ceremonial American flag drop and confetti shot; and watch a final explosive fireworks array. This year musical guests included Susan Tedeschi, Ellis Hall, Howie Day, Ayla Brown, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus. Keith Lockhart conducted the Boston Pops Orchestra.

“The event was a lot of fun to be part of,” says lighting designer Christopher Landy of Vibrant Design LLC. “Summer shows like this one can be challenging because they start in the daylight and end at night, so you need to use spots that are able to compete with the sun.”

Landy utilized two Cyranos obtained from Capron. “The talent looked great,” Landy says. “The spots fields are perfectly even and consistent and they’re very easy to operate – Which is more important than you think. It makes it easy to balance and easy for the operator and myself to subtly tweek levels.”

Cyrano is a compact and efficient 2500-watt HMI followspot with a high-performance quartz condenser optical system. It features a 100% closing iris in a removable cassette; 100% closing dimmer; B-size gobo holder ; and 6-way boomerang color changer with removable filter frames.

Landy reports that he uses Robert Juliat lighting exclusively these days – even on less spectacular shows. “When I am lighting A-List talent, I need an A-List fixture Juliat provides that,” he says. “The camera sees every imperfection and flutter, an inconsistent field is not an option. In fact, on a recent comedy shoot, I had to swap out three competitors’ spots after the first day of taping. They just weren’t cutting it. With the Juliat spots it was like a new show. Shows with Juliats equal happy clients”.

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.”
