LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – FEBRUARY 2011: On his latest album, 2010′s Look East, Jeff Harding refines his fluid guitar playing to build songs of transcendent beauty, measured out by thoughtful lyrics delivered with honesty and simplicity. The final product was mixed and mastered by Casey Wood (Randy Travis, Jimmy Buffett, George Strait) at The Insanery in Nashville, Tennessee with Harding using the new BOCK 251 studio condenser with a Pauly Superscreen pop filter to record all of the vocals in his project studio.

In anticipation of purchasing a new vocal mic, Harding did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions. “Since I knew I would be dropping a lot of money, I wanted to be careful,” he said. “I considered buying a vintage mic, but I was too scared by all the stories I heard about vintage mics that had lost their sound or had become more

SYMETRIX JUPITER “ZERO LEARNING CURVE” DSP ORBITS NEW AUDITORIUM IN SPAIN’S HISTORIC ATENEU BARCELONÈS

ateneu_barcelones.JPGBARCELONA, SPAIN – FEBRUARY 2011: Located in Barcelona, Spain, the Ateneu Barcelonès is a unique institution. It is not a school, though many have learned there. It is not a club, though many gather there. It is not a library, though many books and a wealth of knowledge are preserved there. The Ateneu Barcelonès is perhaps best described as an intellectual cultural center, more

SYMETRIX AUTOMIX MATRIX 780 INSTALLED IN SERBIAN CONFERENCE ROOM

serbian_conferenceroom.JPG

BELGRADE, SERBIA – FEBRUARY 2011: A recently completed conference room in the municipality of Vracar in Belgrade, Serbia serves the local government with a state-of-the-art audio/visual system. In addition to supporting conferences and sophisticated multi-media presentations, the main stereo sound system (with a supporting subwoofer) also permits the user to hold special movie events. The system, which centers on a Symetrix Automix Matrix 780 digital signal processor chosen for its power, simplicity, and very competitive price, delivers speech reinforcement, both for delegates and for visiting speakers or members of the public, as well as signal distribution, both for ENG journalists and for a large plasma monitor in the foyer of the building.

Based in Belgrade, Lola Audio designed and installed the new conference room’s A/V system. Zoran Kecojevic, former general manager and now owner of Lola Audio, led the effort, relying more

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – JANUARY 2011: Symetrix announces a new, freely available release of the programming software for two of its popular fixed-architecture processors, the Automix Matrix 780 and the Room Combine 788.

Specifically, the wall panel button LEDs will now light in a latched-radio-button manner so that the more

new_jupiter_apps.JPG

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – FEBRUARY 2011: Symetrix recently announced new apps for use with its groundbreaking, “zero learning curve” Jupiter audio processor. Modeled after smartphone technology, the Jupiter system is comprised of hardware units that users program with apps that they download from the Symetrix website. The apps instantly program the Jupiter hardware to perform a multitude of common audio processing tasks. Then the user only needs to tweak the settings to meet the needs of the particular installation. Six new apps join the existing library: Sound Reinforcement 11 (multi-source mono or stereo selection routed to processed direct outputs), Stereo SPL 1 (automatic level adjustment for multiple stereo sources based upon ambient noise levels), Retail SPL 1 (automatic volume level controller), Priority Zone Mixer 1 (multi-zone priority mixer), Home Theater 1 (precision 5.1 loudspeaker management with subwoofer management) and Home Theater 2 (precision multichannel loudspeaker management).

BEN ARTHUR’S DUBWAY DAYS AND THE METRIC HALO ULN-8

ben_al_wes.JPG

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: Ben Arthur is a charismatic, self-made singer/songwriter who has released four critically-lauded albums and opened for such acts as Tori Amos, Bruce Hornsby, and the Dave Matthews Band. His knack for successful collaborations has earned him the friendship of many very talented musicians who tend to fly just under the radar of the mass media. That knack and those friendships will be put to the dramatic test on Dubway Days, a web-TV show – and possible Network TV show – that will air its pilot episode on February 14, 2011 at www.breakthruradio.com. It so happens that Ben Arthur is also an ardent Metric Halo user.

The tagline for Dubway Days, “Two Artists… One Day… One Song,” sums up the mechanics of the show, but its drama hinges on the immensity of that task. Ben Arthur and a guest begin a day of more

DREW BECKER, FOH ENGINEER FOR THE GRAMMY NOMINATED STRING BAND HAS A LONG RELATIONSHIP WITH METRIC HALO

stringdusters.JPG

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: There is much to admire in a band that forms for the love of music and then, because of the members’ talent, inspiration, and joyful willingness to play tour after tireless tour, achieves well-deserved success. A bluegrass band that elegantly draws inspiration from tradition, The Infamous Stringdusters recently earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance for “Magic #9,” the fourth track on the band’s third album, Things That Fly. The Infamous Stringdusters are rather famous – despite the appellation – on the bluegrass-friendly stages of the nation for both their quality (see above) and their quantity (the band plays approximately 150 shows a year!). FOH engineer Drew Becker was fresh off a degree from Full Sail and still rather green when he went to work full-time for the band three years ago. Since then he has logged over 500 shows, some more

DANLEY FLOWS INTO THE RIVER OF LIFE CHRISTIAN CENTER

riveroflife_0071.JPG

RIVERVIEW, FLORIDA – FEBRUARY 2011: The River of Life Christian Center in Riverview, Florida stepped boldly into the future with a dramatic overhaul, both sonic and scenic, of its new sanctuary. The room’s old sound reinforcement barely merited that appellation, and it would be a stretch to say there were lighting and video systems – just some lights and some video. River of Life hired Christian Sound Installations (CSI) to design and install a new A/V system that would catapult the sanctuary from uninspired husk to enlivened, state-of-the-art spiritual focal point. To realize that transformation, Paul Garner, CSI principal and chief designer, relied on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, together with a suite of energy-efficient – but unassailably awesome – theatrical lighting fixtures and video display technologies.

“The old sound system at River of Life looked as if it had more

JUPITER RIDES THE BUS

sorta_jupiter.JPG

CINCINNATI, OHIO – FEBRUARY 2011: The nearly two million residents of Cincinnati, Ohio and its greater metropolitan area rely on the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) for timely, comprehensive bus service. To meet its obligation, SORTA maintains a rigorous program of bus maintenance and inspection in its huge central facility. Until recently, communication throughout the facility hinged on an intermittent, semi-functional paging system that, after thirty years of daily use, operated poorly. SORTA hired American Sound & Electronics from across the Ohio River in Covington, Kentucky to gut the old system and replace it with something that would work well and reliably. Trey Arrowsmith, systems designer with American Sound & Electronics, specified a Symetrix Jupiter 12 to form the heart of the new system based on its generous input/output count, low cost, and ease of programming.
