Yamaha StageMix Version 3 Takes a Bow


BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced a major update for the StageMix iPad App available for Yamaha M7CL and LS9 digital consoles. StageMix Version 3 enables even greater control and ease-of-use in live sound and sound reinforcement applications such as houses of worship and performing arts centers. StageMix Version 3 makes its official debut today at ProLight+Sound in Frankfurt.

In 2010, Yamaha released the first application of the StageMix iPad App for the M7CL console, allowing engineers to quickly adjust monitor mixes from the performance position onstage or anywhere in the audience immediately hearing the effects of the adjustments. In 2011, the Company released a similar StageMix iPad App for use with the LS9 console. The StageMix App provides greater control and flexibility for both digital mixing consoles and enables the mixing engineer to freely adjust console parameters and sound levels by wireless control, rather than at the mix position.

New functions for StageMix V3 include: Mute Group Masters; Channel Naming;
Channel Pan; Send Levels in Meter Bridge; Tap Tempo; Edit Mixer Setting (i.e. IP and MAC Addresses); Bank Navigation in Long Faders mode; Selectable Input and Output Meter Positions; EQ Type I / II button in EQ screen; HPF ON button is always available in EQ screen; and DCA Faders (M7CL only).

“As we celebrate our 25th year in providing high-quality digital technology products, we continue to be at the forefront of developing high-performance products for our customers and end users,” states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “With input from our customers based on their needs and feedback, the combination of StageMix Version 3 with an M7CL or LS9 will provide even greater flexibility and convenience when making important and necessary mix adjustments.”

StageMix Version 3 for the M7CL or LS9 will be available in April 2012 and can be downloaded free of charge via the Apple iTunes Store.

For more information on StageMix Version 3, visit Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. at the NAB 2012 Show on April 16, booth #C2239 or via the web at www.yamahaca.com.

MUSICAL POLYMATH JACK HALE DOTES ON METRIC HALO

jack_hale.JPGSAFETY HARBOR FLORIDA – MARCH 2012: Jack Hale does it all, and he does it all well. An instrumentalist, a musician, a composer, an engineer, and a producer, Hale has enjoyed a storybook career. Inspired by the successful and meaningful lives of his father and uncle, musicians both, Hale took up the trumpet at thirteen and quickly obtained a virtuosic proficiency that earned him a place in the music department at the University of Memphis. Hale befriended John Fry and Joe Hardy, and they gave him the keys to Ardent Studio to use as he wished in the off hours. Meanwhile, Hale was selected as the trumpet player in the Memphis Horns and had a hit single to his credit at the tender age of twenty (on Al Green’s “Full Of Fire”). While touring as a trumpet player with Johnny Cash, Cash recognized Hale’s more

This is Ashly’s first product in this genre and heralds their commitment to providing quality products to this growing segment of the audio marketplace.

The TM-360 has the capability to automatically switch into a stand-by mode if no audio input is received for 25 minutes, thus reducing the current draw.

The TM-360, along with other new products in this series will be covered by Ashly’s five-Year Warranty, which many dealers and end-users believe is among the best-administered and supported manufacturer warranties in the industry.

ITS AURA AGLOW, SYMETRIX SOLUS 8 PROCESSOR PROVIDES THE SONIC SOUL FOR FASHIONABLE PHILADELPHIA RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – MARCH 2012: Aura Restaurant & Lounge recently opened in Philadelphia and, without wasting a moment, placed itself at the vanguard of the city’s hip and happening night life. Claiming two floors in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood, Aura is, like its clientele, dressed to the nines. But instead of sharp suits and tight dresses, Aura teases with futuristic LED lighting, HD plasma screens, and hip, modern décor. Of course, hearts race when Aura kicks up the music from one or both of the elevated DJ booths, and compliant bodies move to the rhythms. Aura hired Pro Systems from nearby Cherry Hill, New Jersey to breathe fire into its sound reinforcement system, and they responded by providing Aura with an unfalteringly stable Symetrix Solus 8, a processor that’s heavy on fidelity and possessed of a deep musical soul.

“We’ve been installing Symetrix processors of various types for several more

API 1608 INSTALLED IN BELGIUM STUDIO

pieter_apers.JPGBRUSSELS, BELGIUM – MARCH 2012: Brussels-based Studio La Buanderie has recently installed a 16-channel API 1608 – a console that its owner and engineer, Pieter Apers, calls, “the holy grail in recording.” Apers purchased the fully-analog console through API dealer Amptec, who is credited with quickly bringing multiple 1608 consoles into Belgium.

“I have always been an audio enthusiast, so I have known about API for a very long time,” said Apers. But when I was choosing a console for my studio, I considered a number of alternatives. To be fair, some others offer deeper DAW integration and more bells and whistles than the 1608. However, when it comes to sound and sheer build quality there is no doubt – the 1608 stands high above the others.”

Apers founded Studio La Buanderie in his home eight years ago to fulfill a longtime more

SYMETRIX JUPITER PROCESSORS UNITE FIRST UNITED

firstunitedmethodist_sandiego.JPGSAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – MARCH 2012: First United Methodist Church of San Diego is the largest Methodist church in southern California and occupies one of the most architecturally-splendid church campuses in the area. Over many decades, First United has struggled with sound reinforcement systems for its multiple venues that somehow always failed to live up to expectations. Recently, Paul Svenson of Sound Casework Inc. (PS Audio Video) reversed the inertia of that sorry history, unifying all five sound systems under a common, easy-to-use, foolproof paradigm centered on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 signal processor and the Symetrix ARC-2e wall panel remote. Now volunteers can get a quick explanation of how to work on any system and transfer their knowledge transparently to any of the other systems, relying on Svenson’s intuitive design to deliver perfect audio with confidence.

“I’ve been trying to get First United’s more

ASHLY AUDIO ADMITTED TO WEST POINT

usmaps_exterior.JPGWEST POINT, NEW YORK: The United States Military Academy Prep School (USMAPS) provides critical academic training to promising students who aspire to be admitted to the US Army’s prestigious West Point Military Academy. Although the core institution of USMAPS has been around for nearly a century at various locations throughout the country, only recently did it commit to new construction in the town of West Point, New York, adjacent to the military academy. A multi-purpose lecture hall/ auditorium is the largest room in the new building (excepting sports-related facilities) and seats approx. 325 students. USMAPS hired New York-based Pro Sound Associates to integrate the room’s audio and video components, many of which were already purchased. Company owner Dominick Campana relied on an Ashly ne24.24M modular processor to tie the disparate pieces together in a way that would be reliable and easy for the school’s more
