Sound Company Adds Yamaha CL5 to Arsenal

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Event Pro, Inc. of Hastings, MN has recently upgraded its digital console arsenal with a new Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console and Rio3224-D and 1608-D input/output boxes. The purchase was facilitated by Metro Sound and Lighting, St. Paul, MN. Event Pro supports regional and national productions, and is a technical services provider for touring, corporate, civic, and educational events. The company began 14 years ago, however, owner Neal Wallace started his career prior to that in the 1980s as a touring engineer. Although the basic focus for Event Pro was (and still is) providing state-of-the-art audio services, the company also provides full lighting, video, and staging services.

“Our focus is on pre-production planning and heavy client involvement in the execution of an event or concert,” states Wallace. “We also provide high school theatre sound instruction and support for school events that are often very complex in nature, some with up to 30 wireless systems, 48 audio channels, and multiple scenes programed on the consoles. With our training and the use of Yamaha digital consoles, students are able to handle 100% of an event’s audio operation.

Wallace said the new Yamaha CL5 will be used for many Event Pro productions, and Yamaha console familiarity was key to its purchase. “It was a logical step for all technicians familiar with Yamaha consoles, says Wallace. We have been avid fans of Yamaha digital consoles, but the decision also came on advice from our techs along with other production company owners, as a great usable product to own, with the expectation of providing our customers a solid new platform for superb sound.”

Wallace added that another reason for the purchase of the Yamaha CL5 is its digital snake system and the ability to “drag” only pencil thin Cat5 cables across ballroom ceilings and concert grounds instead of the heavy split analog snake systems they currently use. “The technical aspects of the Rio units and Yamaha’s attention to digital pre amp issues for split monitor dual-console systems was also was a factor,” Wallace notes.

Early spring projects for Event Pro, Inc. consist mainly of corporate and non-profit event use, while the summer season focuses on outdoor college events and many festivals where the CL5 will be particularly useful, along with theater, tour rentals, and installed sound business. “Our audio department takes much pride in supplying the ultimate in production requirements for our clients.”
