THE NEW CHAPEL AT ATLANTA’S PERIMETER CHURCH RINGS TRUE WITH DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – NOVEMBER 2010: Over thirty-five years ago Randy and Carol Pope founded Perimeter Church in the Atlanta metro area. Hotel magnate Cecil B. Day, originator of the Day’s Inn chain of “budget-luxury” hotels, rented space to the fledgling church for a mere $50 month and helped propel Perimeter Church to its current success. Now standing on ninety-five acres, Perimeter Church operates a complex of utilitarian buildings for all manner of functions and ministries, including nine auditoriums. But until recently, the campus was missing a beautiful chapel to host special services, events and weddings. That changed this year, with the christening of the Cecil B. Day Chapel, a 475-seat sanctuary of gorgeous wood, stone, and stained glass below a vaulted wooden ceiling. To complement the visual aesthetic, Steve Simmons, director of technical ministries at Perimeter Church, built the sound system around Danley Sound Labs full-range loudspeakers, subwoofers, and stage more

torontocenterarts.JPG

Toronto, Canada, September 2010: Located at the heart of the metro area and home to the city’s best concerts – both classical and contemporary – as well as theatrical productions and other live performances, the Toronto Centre for the Arts is a cultural jewel not just of Toronto, but of North America and the world. Built in 1993, the Centre’s George Weston Recital Hall seats 1,000 and is proclaimed by many to have the best acoustics of any recital hall in Canada. Nevertheless, many contemporary performances in the hall require, by their very nature, a sound reinforcement system. The centre recently replaced the deteriorating system that was put in place when the hall was built, with a new one centered on an L-ACOUSTICS dV-DOSC line array. more

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 2010: To say the production and songwriting team of Wally Gagel and Xandy Barry has worked with a variety of musicians would be an understatement. From their collaborations with established artists (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Backstreet Boys, New Order) to their experiences with rising talent (Styrofoam, Second Son, Axiz, Tamar Kaprelian, Vera Mesmer, Joshua James), Gagel and Barry certainly know music. That said, it is no surprise that the two, who work under the name WAX LTD, recently chose to outfit their studio with a new 16-channel API 1608 console. Taming what had originally been an ungainly tangle of outboard gear, their 1608 provides the definitive API analog warmth and punch, in addition to the well-thought-out functionality WAX LTD was looking for. more
