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

ASHLY ENTERS THE COMMERCIAL SOUND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY

ashly_tm360.JPGWEBSTER, NEW YORK – MARCH 2012: With the introduction of the new TM-360 mixer/amplifier, Ashly Audio has entered the commercial sound electronics industry. 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 first product in this line, the TM-360, is a three-Input 60W mixer/amplifier that offers input and output flexibility coupled with energy efficiency. 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

DANLEY DIALS IN STATE-OF-THE-ART SOUND AT KELOWNA CHRISTIAN CENTRE

kelowna_christiancentre_outside.JPGKELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA: Kelowna Christian Centre (KCC) in Kelowna, British Columbia is many things to many people. It is a contemporary, charismatic church with services that feature a full band, high-energy worship, multi-media presentations, dramatic performances, and dance. It is also a school: kindergarten through twelfth grade for attending students and the largest online school in British Columbia for remote students. Finally, by hosting numerous special events and conferences throughout the year, it is a hub of community life. KCC’s flexible, decade-old sanctuary is heavily used by the church and the school, and also for events, but until recently its multi-media infrastructure and sound reinforcement were outdated and approaching haphazard. Local A/V integrator AVcom Technical Productions designed and installed a new state-of-the-art A/V system centered on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers.

The original installation had its share of problems from the more

ASHLY AUDIO DELIVERS MULTIPLE LAYERS OF CONTROL IN GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH

greekorthodox_church.JPGROSELAND, NEW JERSEY: Saints Nicholas Constantine and Helen (SNCH) Greek Orthodox Church recently completed construction of a beautiful and inspiring new building in Roseland, New Jersey. Although orthodox in religious doctrine, SNCH was open to incorporating cutting-edge technologies in order to maximize the impact of its services and events. Audio Incorporated of nearby Roselle Park, New Jersey designed and installed a sound reinforcement system centered on Ashly Audio that accommodates three simultaneous methods of control: Ashly WR Series wall mounted remotes, wireless iPad control via a Crestron interface, and Ashly’s new FR-16 network fader remote. Via a single Ethernet cable, the affordable Ashly FR-16 provides a bank of faders and push buttons that the integrator can assign to any function inside an Ashly processor.

“Our design started with Ashly’s ne24.24M signal processor,” explained Mike Sinclair, president and owner of Audio Incorporated. “The reliability more
