PURCHASE, NEW YORK – DECEMBER 2009: Purchase College, part of the State University of New York system, provides its students with real-world training in the visual and performing arts. For students seeking the studio production emphasis, the conservatory of music houses five recording studios that are designed and maintained by practicing professionals in the pro audio industry. As such, the studios represent a well-balanced sample of the current state-of-the-art technology. Faculty member and accomplished producer and engineer/mixer Peter Denenberg (Spin Doctors, Roger Glover/Deep Purple, Martin Sexton, Joan Osborne, et al.) donated his summer to renovate the facilities, retooling the monitoring systems, integrating new outboard gear, and, perhaps most significantly, installing a new API 1608 analog console at the helm of Studio A. more

NEW AT NAMM! TRANSAUDIO GROUP INTRODUCES THE TRUE SYSTEMS PT2-500 MODULAR MIC PRE

pt2_500.JPG

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 2009: With the introduction of the PT2-500 mic pre and DI, TRUE Systems continues its contortionist legacy of packing immense-sounding microphone preamplification into infinitesimal spaces. Descendant of the TRUE Systems Precision 8, which squeezes eight audiophile-grade preamps into a single rack space, the diminutive PT2-500 conforms to the modular 500 Series format. Like all the other preamps in the TRUE Systems family, the PT2-500 delivers stunning detail, rich analog depth, and a robust, reliable design. But the PT2-500 is 500 module sized, for audio professionals who want everything in a rack ready to use, over and over again without buying additional power supplies and multiple racks. more

SYMNET TAKES UP THE CAUSE

BREA, CALIFORNIA – DECEMBER 2009: The Cause Community Church in Brea, California was born of nearby Faith Community Church in West Covina, a mega-church. It was “planted” in 2005, and every week until recently, The Cause’s dedicated volunteers unloaded two trailers-worth of equipment to set up children’s ministries, a youth room, a main service room, and an overflow room in a supportive Brea movie theater complex. Although the volunteers cheerfully performed that Herculean task week-after-week and the congregation attended enthusiastically, everyone pined for the day when they would have a space to call their own. The new space would be a beacon to them and to future members of the congregation. more

MULTI-FACETED AUDIO ENGINEER MICHAEL ROMANOWSKI USES METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 FOR MASTERING, MIXING AND RECORDING

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: When audio engineer Michael Romanowski describes the Metric Halo Mobile I/O ULN-8 interface as the “do-everything” box, he isn’t exaggerating. In fact, the ULN-8 interface is so versatile that it has become an essential component in Romanowski’s workflow, whether he is recording on location or in the studio, mixing at home, or working in his mastering facility.

“I have two that I use at the studio, and then I have several that I use for location recording,” explains Romanowski, who was recently appointed as the Chairman of the P&E Wing of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. Examples of Romanowski’s location recording projects range from Americana musician Todd Snider to the American Bach Soloists, with a wide variety of rock, jazz, pop and blues performers in between.

ASHLY BRINGS SIMPLICITY AND FUNCTIONALITY TO BECKER COLLEGE GYMNASIUM SOUND SYSTEM

LEICESTER, MASSACHUSETTS: The Leicester campus of Massachusetts’ multi-campus Becker College is the 19th oldest campus in the United States. Indeed, the great John Hancock put his John Hancock… er, signature… on its charter in 1784. Now a prestigious private school, Becker’s 1,700 students uphold its strong academic tradition, and recent years have witnessed tremendous growth in the school’s athletic program. As such, the lone 37 year-old speaker cabinet, in the equally-old Leicester Campus Gymnasium, was proving more and more inadequate, and the school was forced to rent a better system for most events. When administrators approved a modest budget for a new system, the multimedia crew and athletic directors were overjoyed to receive a fabulous sounding and remarkably easy to control system, the logic, processing, and interface of which is provided by an Ashly ne24.24M matrix processor with intuitive Ashly remote control units.

MORE HD SURROUND SOUND FROM SKY WITH SOUNDFIELD’S UPM-1 • Satellite Broadcaster Buys Eight SoundField Stereo-to-5.1 Upmix Processors

keith_lane.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: European satellite broadcaster BSkyB, better known as Sky, has purchased eight of SoundField’s stereo-to-5.1 upmix processors for live use in their studios and outside broadcast facilities. The SoundField UPM-1 is a 1U, 19-inch rack processor which can create a convincing, phase-coherent 5.1 surround panorama from stereo audio in real-time, without adding any reverb or unwanted additional phase shifts. It does this by adaptively analyzing the two-channel stereo material, separating the content into its ambient and direct components, and placing any material from the center of the original stereo mix, such as commentary or dialogue, into the center channel of the resulting 5.1 panorama. For HD broadcasters, the UPM-1 ensures that most audio can be broadcast in fold-down friendly surround sound, without obvious moments when the broadcast soundscape narrows to stereo during the transmission of older, stereo-only material.

“The UPM-1 is more

DANLEY STEPS UP TO THE PLATE AT TURNER FIELD

ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Poised for a future playoff berth with a hopeful mixture of youth and experience, the Atlanta Braves finished the 2009 season with a respectable record and much to look forward to. But for Turner Field, built originally for the 1996 Olympics and the club’s home ever since, 2009 marked the transition from possession of a dated sound system to possession of arguably the best system in major league baseball. Assailed by the elements, the old loudspeakers were showing signs of age, replaced by over four-hundred Danley loudspeakers with full weatherproofing, as well as customized rigging and coverage patterns to fit perfectly in the old speakers’ places. Not only did Danley deliver extensive customization, it did so within an extremely short timeframe.

The original equipment had been in place for thirteen years and the loudspeakers were beginning to deteriorate. The Braves more
