Blaze of Glory: Yamaha CL5 Installed at NEP Studios

NEW YORK—NEP Studios in New York City recently installed a Yamaha CL5 in Studio 47, and TheBlaze has made it their home for production of many of its shows. TheBlaze is a news, opinion and entertainment network dedicated to delivering high quality programming 24/7. TheBlaze is available on over 25 television providers including DISH and Optimum TV. TheBlaze is also available as an online video streaming network.

The Yamaha CL is currently being used for production of Real News, Wilkow!, Liberty Treehouse and The B.S. of A. The exclusive provider of Glenn Beck’s daily television broadcast, TheBlaze offers a full slate of thought-provoking original news and opinion shows, enlightening documentaries and original specials.

The Yamaha CL5 in NEP 47 is equipped with four Rio 3224-D input/output boxes. “I had exhausted the analog console’s I/O,” states John Ariz, broadcast audio mixer for TheBlaze TV. “NEP and TheBlaze agreed to upgrade the studio and loved the cost-for-power ratio of the CL5. Having prior experience on Yamaha PM5D, LS9, and M7CL consoles, I could tell Yamaha had really listened to their user’s feedback and incorporated some of the best features in this model.”

Ariz cites features like the Dante Network’s ease of use, the console’s 24 mix busses, the ability to choose the direct outs and insert points, and its preamps. “The console sounds great. Lots of clean headroom, very dynamic and the new premium effects are exciting,” says Ariz.

“We had been looking for a digital console to replace the current analog console, and was pleased that Yamaha was able to provide an on-site demo of the CL5 and DANTE IO for our engineers and management,” adds Alex Joyce, Tech Manager for TheBlaze. “After the decision was made, NEP’s talented engineers pre-wired all patch bays and remote IO during our normal production schedule to allow for the installation of the CL5 over a three-day weekend, replacing the current analog console. We were under a very tight deadline to resume full production, and Yamaha provided an experienced technical rep on the launch day to ensure it was a success. We are very pleased with the Dugan-MY16 card option, as this feature greatly improves the intelligibility of our productions. Our staff and freelance audio engineers have been quite happy with the ease of operation and robust features of the CL5.”
