ST. PIUS X CATHOLIC CHURCH LEAPS INTO THE NEW DECADE WITH NETWORKABLE ASHLY AMPLIFIERS

ROCHESTER, MINNESOTA – MARCH 2010: Like so many houses of worship, St. Pius X Catholic Church in Rochester, Minnesota followed a haphazard path from the era predating sound reinforcement to today. The church was established in 1954 and moved into their present building a decade later. A rudimentary public address system went in some time in the 1970s to provide reinforcement for spoken word. But as the church moved towards live music – a mixture of choral with classical instrumentation, such as violin, piano, and flute – the system, which was already inadequate for its intended purpose and riddled with hot and cold spots, was asked to reinforce the music as well. The result was predictable. Thus, when the church undertook a massive renovation, Intermedia Systems Group (ISG) replaced the old sound system with a thoroughly modern one that provides even coverage across the audible spectrum. more

ATC MONITORS HELP MICHAEL BISHOP EARN HIS NINTH GRAMMY AWARD FOR “TRANSMIGRATION”

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – MARCH 2010: Michael Bishop (recording, mixing and mastering engineer) and Elaine Martone (producer) have created a compelling and timeless work in Transmigration, a Super Audio CD release on Telarc Records devoted to honor and remembrance. The recording recalibrates the creative and emotional possibilities of surround sound, a fact reflected in the team’s recent win of “Best Surround Sound Album” at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, which earned Bishop his ninth Grammy and Martone her fifth. As with his other award-winning recordings, Bishop relied on ATC monitors throughout recording, mixing and mastering phases to reveal the undecorated truth, allowing him to correct problems that other monitors would have blurred over. As a result, Transmigration is compelling when played back on any system and worthy of the industry’s highest honor. more

CONTEMPORARY AND LEGENDARY PRODUCER BUTCH VIG TURNS TO THE BOCK 507 MIC

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MARCH 2010: Few contemporary musical minds can claim credit for having helped craft as many ground-breaking works as can the mind of Butch Vig. As producer, he is responsible for both Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” which become one of the greatest rock albums of all time, and Smashing Pumpkins’ “Siamese Dream,” which helped defined the sound of the 1990s. Those two accomplishments are epic enough that no one would have faulted him for proudly resting on his laurels. But instead of resting, Vig helped propel his band Garbage to sales of over fourteen million albums from behind the drum kit, a career change that underscores the native Wisconsinite’s genuine love for making music. Since Garbage’s hiatus, Vig has gone on to produce albums for Jimmy Eat World, The Subways, and Green Day, with Green Day’s “21st Century Breakdown” earning a Grammy for “Best Rock Album.” more

SYMETRIX AUTOMIX 780 BREATHES NEW LIFE INTO AN AGING SR SYSTEM IN 100-YEAR-OLD STONE CHURCH

THOMASTON, CONNECTICUT: As they were celebrating one-hundred years in their beautiful stone structure, the parishioners of St. Thomas Roman Catholic Church in bucolic Thomaston, Connecticut were trying to ignore a less jubilant anniversary. It had been 18 years since they purchased a sound system that promised much more than it ever delivered, and they were quickly closing in on two decades of poorly reinforced speech and uninspiring vocals. But even during these difficult times a generous benefactor set aside a very special gift for the procurement of an upgrade to the system. more

DANLEY GENESIS HORNS RIVAL THE ROAR OF JETS AT THE SINGAPORE AIRSHOW

SINGAPORE – FEBRUARY 2010: Against the bone-quaking roar of F-16 fighter jets, Danley’s Genesis Horns (GH-60s) not only provided adequate volume and coverage at the recent Singapore Airshow on February 2-6, 2010, they did so with clarity that was closer to that of studio reference monitors than to the tinny barking of typical high-volume public address systems. more

Outreach Magazine has proclaimed it the fourth-fastest growing church in America, and the technology that delivers the captivating sermons of twenty-something Pastor Steven Furtick has kept pace with the growth. Recently, Elevation donated a permanent sound system to PHS, with the understanding that the church would use it every Sunday. more
