SYMETRIX ZONE MIX 760 COST-EFFECTIVE DSP SOLUTION OFFERS SOFTWARE UPGRADE, CONTINUED SUCCESS FOR INTEGRATORS

zonemix_760.JPG

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – JANUARY 2010: Symetrix is pleased to announce a major software upgrade to its cost-effective and uniquely powerful Zone Mix 760 fixed-architecture DSP system. The original member of Symetrix’ expanding Integrator Series, the Zone Mix 760 helped redefine sound system expectations and sophistication for restaurants, hotels, night clubs, and a wide range of other venues. It continues to win contracts that deliver exceptional functionality, intuitive user interfaces (using Symetrix or third-party hardware controllers), and trouble-free set-ups. In addition to numerous features that speed and simplify programming for busy integrators including copy and paste, graphical EQ response shaping, and enhancements to storing presets that now include output routing, the software upgrade substantially improves performance “under the hood” with features like site file storage and improved network connections. The software is available at no charge from http://www.symetrixaudio.com/repository/zm760_ver3.0.exe

HASTINGS, MINNESOTA – JANUARY 2010: Just a half hour outside of the Twin Cities near the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers, Hastings, Minnesota blends the best of near-urban, suburban, and rural living. Hastings Middle School (HMS) has helped foster a uniquely engaged student body, with over 75% of students participating in the performing arts. Ironically, the school’s 700-seat auditorium – an inheritance from the building’s former life as the high school – balanced at the brink of disuse for years because aging audio/video and lighting components were failing on a regular basis. Resuscitation and intervention kept it limping along. However, all of that changed at the beginning of academic year 2009-2010, after Burnsville, Minnesota A/V design/install firm Intermedia Systems Group (ISG), replaced everything that had been terrible and flighty with equipment that was transparent and rock-solid, right down to the amp rack, which now gleams with the more

C’BURG BRETHREN CHURCH PUTS FAITH IN ONE DANLEY SUB!

CHAMBERSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA – JANUARY 2010: The brethren of Chambersburg Brethren in Christ Church had suffered every Sunday with an inarticulate, unintelligible sound system not just for months, not just for years, but for decades. However, with an array of investments competing for limited funds, the risk of throwing good money after bad to improve or replace the sound system forced them to “just deal with it.” Nearly twenty years after their installation, the problematic loudspeakers forced the issue to be addressed. Now, an all new Danley-centered system with QSC amps and Ashly processing delivers, not just the abundant low-end that was previously absent but, an articulate high-end that has literally allowed the word of God to be heard throughout the entire congregation. more

ATLANTA’S LOVETT SCHOOL UPS THE MULTIPURPOSE ROOM PARADIGM WITH DANLEY

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JANUARY 2010: Established in 1926 in midtown Atlanta by forward-thinking educator Ms. Eva Edwards Lovett, the Lovett School continues a tradition of excellence with over 99% of its students going on to attend four-year colleges. The private school has some 1,400 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade at any one time. A recent “75th Anniversary Campaign” raised over $55 million in funds to expand facilities, most notably for the addition of a new middle school. The centerpiece of the middle school project is a 500-seat multipurpose room, serving as an assembly space for the entire middle school body and as an indoor recreation facility. The new multipurpose room relies on Danley loudspeakers to deliver crisp, intelligible audio for both music and spoken word in an acoustical environment that more like a gym than a theater. more

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts is one of the most widely recognized and respected institutions of higher education for students seeking careers in the music industry. Founded in 1945 at a time when all other conservatories shunned contemporary music, Berklee gave its students a distinctly relevant education by teaching jazz, folk, and other modern genres that captivated the public imagination. With alumni earning more than 175 Grammy Awards, Berklee continues that tradition of relevance today by offering degrees with unparalleled depth and breadth across the many facets that make the music industry hum. In a move inspired both by pedagogy and recognition of the enduring role of high-end analog equipment in the recording industry, the Music Production and Engineering Department recently announced that it will replace three of its existing consoles with three 32-channel API Legacy Plus consoles. more

TROUP COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL UPGRADES FINE ARTS AUDITORIUM WITH DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS

LA GRANGE, GEORGIA: It had only been five years since Troup County Comprehensive High School added a 900-seat fine arts auditorium to their campus in LaGrange, Georgia, but already they were pining for a new sound system. Troup is well-known throughout the region for its theater department, which produces three performances a year at a level of professionalism that is commensurate with college productions. Although the auditorium’s architects did a beautiful job of constructing a thoroughly modern facility, with excellent site lines, acoustics, and amenities, the auditorium’s original sound contractors were not so successful. And thus the otherwise fabulous auditorium limped along from day one. more
