Allstage Pro Adds Yamaha Networking System to Extron’s THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon

BUENA PARK, CA–THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon is Anaheim’s premier dining and country music venue. A restaurant and upscale saloon with separate entrances, it comprises 20,000 square feet of restaurant, wine cellar, live country music, and dancing.

THE RANCH is the longtime dream and vision of Andrew Edwards, president and owner of Extron Electronics, a leading manufacturer of professional AV system integration products for over 29 years. A passion for food, wine, country music and dancing prompted Edwards to create THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon. In developing a live music venue like THE RANCH Saloon, all sound quality and design was handpicked by Edwards. Allstage Pro (Santa Ana) owner, Ian Ingram worked closely with Edwards and Extron Electronic’s Application Engineer Consultant, John Fish, in selecting an elaborate EtherSound networking system in the saloon.

The system includes two Yamaha M7CL digital audio consoles, using the M7CL control surface at front of house connected to a Yamaha NAI network interface, AD8HR mic pre amp, and EtherSound cards, all running off a Yamaha DME64 digital mixing engine.

“Andrew wanted us to design and install a system that would be both analog and digital, user friendly, acceptable for most riders, and one that he could be proud of,” said Ingram. “The idea of using the M7CL control surface to NAI and AD8HR gives us the best of both worlds.”

Allstage Pro also designed and integrated a comprehensive lighting system to provide a wide variety of lighting scenes and visual effects for featured concert acts. A total of 83 lighting fixtures, the majority of which are LED based, were installed in conjunction with the elaborate electrical infrastructure.

Ingram said using Yamaha’s EtherSound networking system was essential in creating a great system with an amazing light show that would make everyone say “Wow!”

Koz, Britton, and a Yamaha CL Digital Console

BUENA PARK, Calif.—An early August stop at the Count Basie Theatre (Red Bank, N.J.) gave engineer Melissa Britton the opportunity of mixing front of house on the new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console while out on summer concert tour with saxophone player, Dave Koz, and special guest BeBe Winans.

Koz is one of the most prominent figures in contemporary jazz, the recipient of two Gold Albums and two GRAMMY® nominations, with five Top 5 hits on the contemporary jazz charts to his name. His most recent release, Hello Tomorrow, was called “an event record” by The New York Times, and was named Best Smooth Jazz Album of 2010 by iTunes. Gospel and R&B singer BeBe Winans won his first Dove Award for a duet with his sister CeCe, “Close to You,” on their 2009 album Still.

“I was definitely interested in using the new Yamaha CL console when I heard about it,” states Britton. “I’ve been using the PM5D for a long time, and was pleasantly surprised when I finally got to use the CL. ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township, N.J.) co-owner Ed DiBona asked me if I’d be interested in using the console, and I was so happy he brought it in. It was really fun to mix on and easy to get around on. I was comfortable instantly.”

Britton said the Yamaha CL Console has some really cool features that neither the M7CL nor the 5D have. “I love the fact that Yamaha took the very best parts of each of those consoles and added a bunch more cool features like the Premium rack, love that,” she says. “The console sounds good and it feels good. The CL has more input and output options which is great when I’m mixing monitors. Another great feature is that you can record straight to a USB thumb drive, which I did at the Basie show, and was amazed when I listened to what was coming through the headphones. You can also cue processing and effects from the touch screen, as opposed to going to the channel.”

Not long ago, Britton had the opportunity to demo the new NEXO 45 N-12 stage monitors and was quite impressed while mixing monitors. “If I could have the N-12 wedges and the CL when mixing monitors, now that would be a great gig.”

Britton said the CL is now her new first choice in a digital console. With the summer tour ending, she will re-unite with Koz for a Christmas tour beginning on Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve.

MSM Gives Bowlus Fine Arts and Cultural Center a Jump Start

BUENA PARK, Calif.—In 1960, when local citizen and banker Thomas H. Bowlus directed that his estate be used to benefit a cultural arts center, he may not have imagined that the Bowlus Fine Arts and Cultural Center (Iola, Kansas) would celebrate its 48th anniversary this year and a major audio upgrade.

MSM Systems (Lawrence, Kansas) was chosen to complete the upgrade in time for the center’s anniversary celebration. The 750-seat Bowlus Fine Arts and Cultural Center mission is defined as “to broaden the cultural background of area youth and make available to the citizens of the area facilities, programs and entertainment not otherwise available.” When the Center originally opened its doors in 1964, it welcomed such artist luminaries as Count Basie, Marcel Marceau, Jungle Jack Hanna, and Lionel Hampton, and more recently Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, to name a few.

“I had worked with MSM in the past and have been very pleased,” states Jeff Jordan, Technical Director at the Bowlus Center. “In determining a bid winner, customer service weighed in very high! Almost all of our shows occur in the evening and on weekends, so we needed a company that would answer the phone at 9:00 pm on a Saturday night if we had a problem. Working with MSM systems has turned out to be a great choice for the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. Everyone at MSM, from the owner to the intern, was on site and did a fantastic job. I wish every company we dealt with had this much passion and a great work ethic as the guys at MSM. The best people to work with are the ones that find solutions to problems they encounter that were unforeseen.”

“I chose NEXO speakers as the line array because they were the exact fit for the space,” states Kent Clasen, President of MSM Systems. “I demonstrated a GEO S12 system for Jeff, and he loved what he heard. When I told him it fit the Center’s budget, he was very excited.”

The main audio upgrade consists of a Yamaha M7CL-48 digital audio console, two Yamaha P3500 amps, ten NEXO GEO S12 line array boxes hung in a vertically arrayed formation five per side, two NEXO RS18 Ray Subs located in the pit, two NEXO PS8s used for front fills, JBL SRX721M monitors, and a Clearcom Intercom system. Two NEXO 4×4 NXAmps were also installed to power the system. “The integrated NXAMP system has over 30,000 watts in eight rack spaces with FIR filters,’ says Clasen, ‘and the new presets in the NXamp are really great with a flat phase response.”

Clasen added that the Yamaha M7CL was a great choice for the Center because it can be used with ease at either front of house or monitors by visiting engineers. “The Bowlus’ previous system was in operation for almost 50 years, so we had to come up with a system that would last!”

Director Susan Raines and Jordan were very hands on in making sure they got the best system. “The decision to enhance our system was based on the requirement for increased clarity and coverage with the ability to do everything from just one presenter on stage to a full band and everything in between,” adds Jordan. “The Bowlus has a very dynamic season every year; we do the local high school’s play, a community theatre musical, our local community college’s annual musical, the Bowlus’ Five Series Shows, and a Gospel concert series. The Bowlus needed an installed sound system that could do it all, rather than continuing to rent a system, and I believe we got one! This year will be the first time our local clients will be able to use a sound system of this quality,” says Jordan.”

The Bowlus Fine Arts and Cultural Center will host the 20th Annual Buster Keaton Celebration this September. For more information on the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, visit www.bowluscenter.org.

CTS Audio Uses New Yamaha CL Consoles at High Profile Christian Events

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Women of Faith, the nation’s largest live event for women has unveiled its most transformational tour yet entitled “Celebrate What Matters.” The cross-country tour highlights some never-before-seen elements including a live worship band, a new state-of-the art stage, and live ballet. The four-month, 23-city North American tour launched on August 3rd in Columbus, Ohio with a diverse line up of 27 well-known speakers, authors, musicians, and performers including inspirational speakers Ann Voskamp, Jennie Allen, Pat Smith, and Liz Curtis Higgs. Multi-award winning musical guest CeCe Winans returned for the tour again this year along with Mandisa, Amy Grant, Selah. Sheila Walsh, Patsy Clairmont, Sandi Patty, Brenda Warner, Marilyn Meberg, Andy Andrews, Ken Davis, and Lisa Harper.

CTS Audio (Nashville), who has supported Women of Faith for over 12 years, is providing two of the new Yamaha CL5 Digital Consoles for front of house and monitors and two RIO 3224 boxes for the east coast with a similar set up for the west coast dates.

“We selected to use the new Yamaha CL consoles on the “Celebrate What Matters” tour because of its smaller footprint, its digital networking capabilities with Dante, and input and output capabilities,” states Mike Taylor, Vice President, CTS Audio. “The console is the best sounding console that Yamaha has put out so far in the digital market. With the internal add ons offered in the desk, plug ins aren’t even needed.” Prior to setting out on the tour, CTS audio engineers obtained in-house training by Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems staff.

In July, CTS Audio provided Yamaha CL consoles for the Covenant High In Christ Youth Conference (CHIC), a tri-annual event, with performances by Chris Tomlin, Skillet, La Crae, Michael Gungor, Willow Creek Worship Team, and over 6,000 high school students in attendance. For this event, CTS Audio provided four CL5 consoles, two at front of house, two at monitors, and four RIO 3224 boxes. “The set up for this event was unique in that we daisy chained all the equipment together to form one large network for openings and worship acts,” says Taylor. “We did this so that inputs/outputs could be called into any surface we wanted for maximum flexibility. With the new platform, we were able to run one network and have 128 inputs and 64 outputs available. This was important since we needed all of them for our house band from Willow Creek as well as the guest bands.”

Up to eight external Rio (Remote I/O) boxes can be used for a total of 256 channels via the Dante digital network. The 5U rack space Rio3224-D includes 32 remote controlled mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs, and four AES-3 outs. The 3U Rio1608-D includes 16 remote controlled mic/line inputs and eight line outputs. Dante network I/O can easily be set up and patched utilizing familiar paradigms within the console user interface, with no external software required for network operations.

The goal of the CHIC Conference is to help high school age students in their walk with Christ, something that matches up perfectly with the core of CTS Audio’s beliefs. “Being part of such a moving event is something that is near to my heart,” states FOH engineer Jon Schwarz.

CTS Audio staff was on site for guest engineers who required CL training, if necessary. However, Taylor said the engineers found it easy to step up and get to work because the console is laid out in a simple-to-follow-through process. “We were also able to load engineer files from other Yamaha products seamlessly. Everyone left talking about how fantastic the desk sounded.”

Yamaha CL Console Lights Up Orion Festival

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Bader Field in Atlantic City over a recent summer weekend was the site for the Orion Music + More Festival featuring Metallica on the main stage along with 30+ bands and over 33,000 in attendance on each of the two-days.

ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township, N.J.) provided the new Yamaha CL5 Digital Console and two Yamaha PM5Ds for the Damage Inc stage along with ten Yamaha TX3n amps for monitors. The Damage Inc stage featured performances by Suicidal Tendencies, Sepultura, The Black Dahlia Murder, Torche, Letlive, Red Fang, Kyng, Landine Marathon, Black Tusk, and Thy Will Be Done. The front of house engineers for the acts got their mixing hands on the new CL console, with Yamaha and ACIR staff on hand to answer any questions.

“Having already been familiar with the Yamaha PM5D, the CL was a breeze to use,” states Matthew (Woody) Woods, front of house engineer for The Black Dahlia Murder. “From the layout, navigation, display and touch screen, the CL makes it much easier to adjust your mix.”

“The CL5 was so quick in getting my mix where it needed to be thanks to the user defined knobs and touch screen capabilities,” says front of house engineer for Red Fang, Adam Pike. “The console was truly put to the test at the Festival where we had to do line checks through headphones. I had no idea what it was going to sound like when we went live through the mains. By the end of the first song, I was already shaping with the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5043 and 5033 in the Yamaha CL; I felt so spoiled!”

ACIR Professional also provided a Yamaha LS9-32 with eight Yamaha DSR 15 speakers and eight DSR subs for Rob Trujillo, the bass player of Metallica, for use on the Vans stage.

“Front of house engineers were pretty enthusiastic about using the new Yamaha CL5 at the Damaged Inc stage, which is a testament to the Yamaha familiarity found throughout the company’s digital console series,” states John Grasso, co-owner of ACIR Professional and systems engineer for the Damage Inc stage. “We wanted to provide an opportunity for the festival engineers to gain the benefit of being the first in our market to work on the console, and we believe it was immensely successful for us, the engineers, and Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems.”

Youth Group Experiences Ultimate Yamaha and NEXO Audio System Thanks to Gand Concert Sound

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The tri-annual gathering of the Evangelical Lutheran Youth of America (ELCA) took place in late July at the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome in New Orleans, and the 35,000 plus teenage attendees once again were treated to praise activities, theatrical and musical performances, and the ultimate Yamaha and NEXO audio system thanks to the production services of Gand Concert Sound (GCS) of Glenview, Illinois, aka “the NEXO guys”. Christian acts including Rhema Soul, Lost and Found, Jimmy Buffet guitarist Peter Mayer, and GRAMMY® winners Switchfoot performed.

For its fourth time supporting the youth event, Gand provided a flown system comprising 60 NEXO GEO T speakers, 18 GEO S12, eight RS18 Ray Subs and 30 ground-stacked CD18 subs. Fifteen NEXO 4×4 amps were utilized to power dozens of NEXO PS15 and PS10s used for stage monitors and front fills, and PS8s used for under balcony delay speakers, as well as S12s and RS18’s.

“This was the first time the event was mixed totally digital from front of house to a pair of Yamaha M7CLs used for monitors on the A and B stages,” states Gary Gand, President, Gand Concert Sound. “A Yamaha LS9-16 was used for audio to video feeds to the Internet and an LS9-32 was put in place for the audience aux island stage. The use of all digital consoles allowed national acts such as Switchfoot, who flew from Seattle to New Orleans to make the show, call up their previous shows with GCS and get right down to business.”

Additionally, GCS used the new Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045 processor developed specifically for Yamaha on specialty mics for added clarity. “We were able to achieve a great sound in one of the USA’s largest venues,” states front of house engineer Adam Rosenthal.

Gand bought their first large NEXO GEO T system in 2003 for an ELCA event held at the Georgia Dome. Since that time, they have continued to expand their inventory as NEXO has brought out more new products while they continue to add to their GEO T stock. “NEXO is constantly updating their software to improve the performance of the gear,” Gand says. “Now we have the integrated 4X4 amp that will work with every NEXO speaker in any combination enabling us to configure amps onsite for arrays, monitors, subs, in any combination and for any model.”

In addition to the July ELCA mega event, GCS also supplied audio production for the Pitchfork Fest in Chicago and dozens of other events around the Midwest.

BeatleShow! Vegas FOHE Gets By With a Little Help from a Yamaha PM5D

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Critics say BeatleShow! at the Saxe Theater in the Planet Hollywood Resort Casino is the closest you can get to a real Beatles concert. Producers of BeatleShow! spared no expense incorporating every meticulous detail from dramatic costume changes to sound and stage lighting, creating the most authentic Beatles experience today.

Sound choice for front of house mixing producer/engineer Mick McCoy, is a Yamaha PM5D digital mixing console. “I’ve been using the 5D since it came out,” states McCoy. “I was on the team that built Disney’s Hyperion Theater at Disneyland as the A1, and we were on the initial beta-test team for the PM1D. What an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the whole Yamaha digital platform.”

As far as the Yamaha digital line, McCoy sights the two biggest features are recall-ability and reliability. “I’ve opened up for The Who at Carnegie Hall with an O1V96 that I brought on a plane in a suitcase. For 15 years, I have been all over the world producing BeatleShow! with Yamaha consoles, and they just don’t fail. It’s also nice to walk into a ballroom in Dubai and see your old friend the 5D sitting there when you’ve got a show to do in a few hours. Over the last ten years, the PM5D has probably been the most rider-friendly console on the market. In my Fabbey Road Studios in Orange County, I have a Yamaha DM2000.”

“The integration of Logic and a dedicated I-Mac show control is something I’ve worked on for about two years,” says McCoy. “Larry Hopkins, a musical and tech guru from Technicolor in LA, really showed me the possibilities for inexpensive automation. For BeatleShow! I use a Motu D/A to run multiple streams of audio, including a tempo map and cues to musicians, all getting stereo in-ear mixes from the PM5D, and stage monitors that are active terraced versions of the house mix—a very easy and cool 5D trick. In addition, a “tech track” or stage manager in a box connects to Clearcom to direct technicians on scenic moves and cues. MIDI output also controls scene changes on the Yamaha PM5D, and all the lighting cues that are generated in a Hog3 PC, as well as keyboard and guitar patches.

Both projection and the video walls are also driven from Logic through Canopus D/A converter boxes. After working with Yamaha engineers from Japan, it is exciting to see the Steinberg compatibility heading in this direction; it makes for an extremely automated and reliable “booked show”, something that my days with Disney taught me to value.”

Out of hundreds of cues for the show, there are only four scene changes on the Yamaha PM5D that need to be triggered manually, and this is done via a switchbox I built for just a few dollars to address the GPI port on the console. It enables me and other engineers to be out of the booth and “in the field” where our ears should be. A PC laptop with Yamaha Studio Manager running on it is wirelessly connected through an inexpensive router, so tweaking audio from the house is possible, including ancillary systems like front fills and monitors. For the price of a cheap laptop and router, an engineer can mix from anywhere in the room.” McCoy said he couldn’t imagine anyone not taking advantage of this inexpensive freedom. A keyboard Blue Toothing to the I-Mac completes mobility and provides a remote “GO” button for the Logic software.

“David Saxe who owns the theater has really given me the latitude to create a great mixing environment. I returned the favor by helping him to create Vegas, the show that follows BeatleShow! and includes about 100 of the best musicians, singers, and dancers in Las Vegas, all house-mixed on the Yamaha PM5D. And, get this, there is only a 10-minute turnaround between shows! Mind you, both of these shows are very “vintage” live shows, and the Yamaha digital format works wonderfully.”

Gand Completes Record Breaking May

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Gand Concert Sound (GCS) of Glenview, Illinois aka “The NEXO Guys” recently completed a record-breaking month supplying 251 NEXO cabinets to an impressive list of clients.

“Our extensive inventory of NEXO products includes world-class cardioid GEO T and CD18 subs, our latest acquisition mid-sized GEO S12, compact PS8, PS15, PS10, PS8 wedges and Alpha conventional cabinets all powered by NEXO 4×4 NXAmps,” states Gary Gand, President of Gand Concert Sound. GCS was the first company in the Midwest to adopt NEXO’s Tangent Array system when it was introduced in 2003.

Gand clients during May included Li’L Ed & the Imperials, Bobby Vinton, Leahy, Crystal Bowersox, Carol Burnett, Stryper, Andrew Bird, Freddie Jones Band, Ludicris, Switchfoot, Oak Ridge Boys, Frankie Valli, Enrique Iglesias, Gym Class Heroes, The Wanted, B.o.B, Cobra Starship, Havana Brown, DEV, Neon Hitch, Carly Rae Jepsen, Karmin, Adam Lambert, The Doobie Brothers, and Dave Mason, to name just a few.

The month finished off with a return to the Allstate Arena in Roselle, Illinois for Fantabuloso 3. An impressive 24-per side NEXO GEO T line array supported by 18 GEO S1210s, 24 CD18 cardioid subs, 10 4×4 NXAmps, and Yamaha PM5D-RH and LS9-16 digital consoles for monitors, played an integral role in the radio- promoted festival that featured 12 performances including bands and the country’s top DJs.

“The NEXO system performed very well at Fantabuloso 3,” stated Gand. “The GEO T is small, but mighty, and produces SPLs comparable to the bigger boxes. Coupled with their cardioid design and cardioid CD18 subs, we feel they are the best in their class. All the band engineers were happy.”

GCS also supplied NEXO PS15 R2s for monitor speakers, Alpha Series for flown side fills and S2 subs, Sennheiser G2 and G3 in ear monitors and Shure UHF-R wireless handhelds with KSM9, B58A, SM58, and B87C capsules at Fantabuloso 3 and made use of quick-change snake boxes from Link.

FOH engineer Adam Rosenthal said, “Fantabuloso 3 was quite the undertaking. Our crew worked tirelessly throughout the show, with only a few seconds of down time.”
