Focusrite RedNet Routes Audio for Custom 27.2 Surround Sound Production at GöteborgsOperan in Gothenburg, Sweden

Two RedNet 2s are the perfect fit for the production, involving choreography by New York-based Richard Siegal and electroacoustic music composed by Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch of IRCAM in Paris

Los Angeles, CA, February 6, 2014 – RedNet, Focusrite’s acclaimed range of Ethernet-networked studio interfaces, is being used for an increasing number of innovative audio applications requiring something special in terms of quality or performance. RedNet couples Focusrite’s legendary conversion expertise – along with superbly transparent mic preamps and other studio-quality audio capabilities – with the tried and tested Dante Ethernet-based audio networking protocol to record, distribute and play back audio over IP.

Most recently RedNet solved a problem for Andreas Renhorn, chief sound engineer at the GöteborgsOperan in Gothenburg, Sweden, when he was tasked with playing back 32 channels of high-quality audio including feeding a custom 27.2 audio system in the Opera’s modern riverside performance complex.

The production The World To Darkness And To Me is a new dance work by New York-based choreographer Richard Siegal, with electroacoustic music composed by Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch of IRCAM in Paris. Hoesch’s abstract, percussive electronic/sampled music directly complements Siegal’s ‘If/Then’ dance method, which combines written choreography with options for the dancers to co-create in an almost game-like environment where they pick up and improvise around each other’s moves.

Hoesch’s music, which was created with visual music programming language Max, required enormous dynamic range to convey a great deal of light and shade, and was designed to be played back in three dimensions via a special 27.2 loudspeaker array installed for the production. Using MSP audio extensions and 3D spatialization plug-ins, he was able to achieve extremely powerful manipulation of the audio.

Hoesch used Ambisonic’s surround-sound system, which can seamlessly recreate a three-dimensional sound field where sounds can be placed anywhere in space completely unrelated to the loudspeaker positions.

To replay this remarkable music in this advanced way, in this unique environment, was Renhorn’s primary challenge: “I needed to find equipment that was able to achieve the highest possible quality of digital conversion.” He also needed to get 32 channels of audio easily from one place to another.

Renhorn soon found that Focusrite’s RedNet 2 A/D – D/A units offered the perfect solution. With 16 channels of studio-quality line-level A/D – D/A conversion per unit, a pair of RedNet 2’s provided exactly the right number of channels for the main system plus auxiliaries, and made it easy to get the audio where it was needed thanks to the plug-and-play Dante Ethernet-based networking.

For the performances, audio was sent from a MacBook Pro running QLab, a cue-based multimedia playback software system designed for theater and live work. Using the Dante Virtual Sound Card (DVS) driver – which is provided free of charge with any RedNet unit – the MacBook Pro’s internal Ethernet port was used to carry digital audio to the RedNet units via a standard NetGear GS716T switch, which sits between the RedNet units and the computer. The analog outputs of the RedNet 2’s were fed into the 29-channel d&b-based replay system via DB25 cables, with two additional channels for stage foldback and one more for voice.

Gothenburg-based firm AV-1 handled the supply and installation of the RedNet components as well as the playback system. AV-1’s Göran Blomgren states, “This was one of the fastest and smoothest installations ever. Supplementing the Opera’s existing front speakers, we installed 22 additional loudspeakers on the balconies plus five mounted 25 meters up in the ceiling – yet including the loudspeaker and Ethernet cabling, it was completed in under six hours.” He concludes, “I look forward to our next RedNet installation!”

The Ethernet-based functionality of RedNet had some other unexpected benefits. Renhorn explains, “Hoesch was impressed at how easy it was to set up his laptop at the center of the auditorium on a 50-meter Cat6 cable so he could fine-tune the feeds to the playback array. And he was also impressed at how easy it was to hook up a second laptop to the same network for recording by simply connecting an Ethernet cable between the laptop and the switch.”

The result was an amazing multimedia experience. Sound elements, often derived from samples of the Opera’s musicians, tumble around, across and up and down the 1300-seat auditorium, in sync with the dancers in large and small groups and dazzling lighting effects. For similar performances in the future, Renhorn plans to use a RedNet PCIe card in a Thunderbolt PCIe chassis for even better performance and minimum latency.

Also available in the RedNet range of Dante Ethernet-networked audio interfaces are RedNet 1, an 8-channel A/D – D/A unit; RedNet 3, a 32-channel digital I/O unit; RedNet 4, an 8-channel remote-controllable microphone preamp; RedNet 5, a 32-Channel bridge between any Dante network and Pro Tools|HD; RedNet 6, a 64-channel bridge between any Dante network and MADI system; and the RedNet PCIe card, which provides 128 I/O for Mac or PC computers at less than 3ms latency.

Introducing Focusrite RedNet D16 AES

Focusrite Announces RedNet D16 AES – 16-channel AES3 I/O for Dante audio networks

Los Angeles, CA, February 3, 2014 – Focusrite announces the new RedNet D16 AES interface, a 1U 19-inch rack-mount interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from a Dante audio network, with Ethernet redundancy for maximum network reliability. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment and a Dante network, RedNet D16 AES has a Sample Rate Convertor (SRC) on each input pair, allowing instant operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections provide synchronization with a wide range of hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players.

Two DB25 connectors each provide eight channels of combined I/O to the AES59 standard, allowing speedy interconnection with other DB25-connected or XLR-based equipment by use of standard DB25 to XLR cables. The rear-panel XLR female input can be used either as a DARS sync source for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source replacing input channels 1–2 on the DB25 connectors. An XLR male socket provides a duplicated AES3 outlet for output channels 1–2. The RCA S/PDIF input can similarly replace input channels 3–4 of the DB25 connectors, while the S/PDIF output can replicate any adjacent odd/even pair of the 16 output channels.

The two network connectors on the rear of the unit allow two modes of operation. They can be used either as a primary/redundant network interface, allowing seamless switchover in the case of network failure, or as a daisy-chain port allowing the connection of multiple units.

All the clocking and input/output options of RedNet D16 AES are remotely controlled by the RedNet Control software application for Mac and PC.

Genelec Has Strong Presence at the 2014 NAMM Show

— With a product debut and awards for new and classic Genelec offerings, the NAMM Show was the backdrop for an impressive showing from Genelec —

NATICK, MA, January 29, 2014 — Genelec is proud to wrap a successful several days in Anaheim at the 2014 NAMM Show. Since recently marking the completion of its 35th anniversary year celebration in 2013, Genelec has been on a roll, and this convention served as the backdrop for a new product unveiling (the 8010 Active Monitor) and multiple prestigious awards for the loudspeaker pioneer.

Debuted at the show, the 8010 Active Monitor is the smallest member of the acclaimed 8000 Series product range. The 8000 Series is widely used in the high-end professional audio, mastering, post-production and broadcast market sectors around the world. Its professional heritage is reflected in the compact-sized 8010. Suitable for professional work in small studios, it offers accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation. The outstanding sound quality makes the 8010 ideal for small studios and OB vans, and a perfect companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work.

Genelec products were also the recipients of two different awards from the NAMM Foundation at the NAMM Show:

First, Genelec’s new M Series Active Monitors won the 29th Annual TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category “Studio Monitor Technology.” The award was presented on January 24, 2014, at a special ceremony. The energy-efficient M Series (thus far comprising the first two models, M030 and M040) takes a new approach to monitor design as part of Genelec’s larger ongoing sustainable initiatives known as Genelec Embedded Sustainability. The primary focus in developing the new M Series was to proceed with a sustainable mindset without sacrificing the accuracy and reliability for which Genelec has been known for the past 35 years – while also offering something new and innovative for project studio customers.

Second, Genelec’s classic 1031A Active Studio Monitor, introduced in 1991, was inducted into the TECnology Hall of Fame at a separate ceremony on January 25, 2014. Outlining the 1031A’s outstanding achievement, the Hall of Fame’s description of the monitor is as follows: “The 1031A was not Genelec’s first monitor (that was 1978′s S-30) or active system that employed the innovative Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) — a nod that goes to 1984’s 1022A mid-field tri-amp and later 1989′s large-format 1035A system. However in 1991, when Genelec debuted the 1031A — a compact, yet high-performance monitor that applied the DCW approach into a self-powered near-field design, a classic was born. At just over 15 inches tall, the 1031A offered flat response (out to 23k Hz), 240 watts of onboard biamplification and the ability to reach 120 dB peaks. All of these made the 1031A a popular choice with top engineers and producers, studios and broadcasters worldwide and it stayed in production for 15 years, eventually being replaced by Genelec’s 8000 series Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) technology monitors.”

“This has been a banner year for Genelec,” stated Will Eggleston, Genelec Inc. Marketing Manager. “I can think of no better way to wrap our 35th anniversary celebration than to have such an eventful NAMM Show. We are immensely proud of our new 8010 Active Monitor and M Series products, and it was a true honor to be acknowledged by the NAMM Foundation in two separate award ceremonies. We are dedicated to our technology on an intense level, and it is satisfying to see the fruits of our hard work.”

Bose® Professional System Components Selected for Harvest Bible Church in Cypress, Texas

The church wanted to keep a 1,000-seat sanctuary intimate-sounding, and Bose® RoomMatch® loudspeakers and PowerMatch® amplifiers were able to do just that, filling the room with only six modules while covering every seat perfectly

Framingham, Massachusetts, January 28, 2014 – The Harvest Bible Church in Cypress, Texas, had a challenging agenda: allow its 1,000-seat sanctuary to have an intimate ambience yet still have both speech and music fill the entire space intelligibly and coherently, despite a relatively low 18-foot ceiling and highly reflective surfaces on the walls and floor. And one more criterion: keep the PA system’s profile minimal and as invisible as possible. It might have seemed difficult to meet all of these goals, but a RoomMatch® loudspeaker system from Bose® Professional Systems was just the right solution.

Covenant Communications, an AV systems designer and integrator in Houston, used two RM12020 modules, one RM12010 module and an RMS215 subwoofer in each of two L/R arrays, all powered by three Bose PowerMatch® PM8500N eight-channel amplifiers. That was all it took to fulfill all of the needs of this complex acoustical space.

“The six compression drivers in each cabinet from two arrays provided all the directivity we needed to tailor the sound coverage to all of the seats in the worship hall, and we were able to do that without further exciting this challenging acoustical environment with more cabinets yielding higher SPL’s,” observes Joe Smart, the Sales Manager for Covenant Communications and the system’s designer. Noting the concrete flooring, the copious amounts of highly reflective solid drywall, and the fact that there was no acoustical treatment in the ceiling space, he says, “A predictable coverage pattern for the sound was absolutely critical. And that’s why the RoomMatch speakers were the perfect solution: We were able to cover the space consistently and coherently with a minimum number of boxes.”

Smart says he was introduced to the Bose RoomMatch system when his Bose sales representative took him to hear it in the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center installation in Oklahoma. “I was greatly surprised and impressed by the even response of the off-axis high frequencies of the system,” he recalls. “I left there feeling confident that I could specify a RoomMatch system for the Harvest Bible Church project, to meet their challenging space and acoustical needs. I talked to the customer and flipped the spec within a week of hearing the RoomMatch system because I was never quite settled on how to solve some of the room dilemmas, but I was confident of what I heard in Broken Arrow. Without the RoomMatch loudspeakers, I would have had to use a ton of boxes and delay lines to achieve the same coherency that we get with just six RoomMatch modules. We’re getting all the benefits of a line array without having to hang more than we wanted to. There is a certain genius in the range of options for putting the boxes together.”

In addition to the RoomMatch modules used in the sanctuary, Covenant Communications also installed 70-volt Bose DS40 ceiling speakers outside of the worship center, to cover overflow areas, networked to, and powered by, the PowerMatch amplifiers. “I’ve gotten more compliments from the end user on this system than other projects I can remember. The system is really musical, and we did it all with a minimum of hardware,” says Smart. “It was definitely a case of less really being more.”
