Eastern Star Church Opens Northwest Campus

BUENA PARK, Calif.—CSD, Inc. of Fort Wayne, Indiana recently completed a design/build project for the new Northwest Campus of Eastern Star Church in Indianapolis. The church began its history in 1920 with a congregation of 12, and now, three campuses later, has grown to a congregation of over 25,000. The new location was required to fill the need for a larger worship space to accommodate the growing congregation. It also provides a presence for Eastern Star Church on the west side of the city.

“We were chosen as the church’s design/build partner for audio, video and lighting, including systems for the sanctuary as well as significant performance systems in auxiliary spaces such as a chapel, conference rooms, youth and the children’s area,” states Doug Hood, Owner/President, CSD.

A major undertaking, the 3,000-seat contemporary gospel northwest campus features a choir, band, praise team and for most sermons, has 120 members located on the stage. Its new audio system is centered around a NEXO GEO S12 line array consisting of 14 GEO S1210s and 27 GEO S1230s all in white, Yamaha PM5D-RH digital audio console at front of house, and M7CL-48 used for monitors.

“We always stay on top of new products from manufacturers, and since CSD and Eastern Star Church were looking for a high output, yet, small format speaker system that could keep up with the high-energy worship style of the church, we knew the NEXO system would be a perfect fit,” says Hood.

Hood noted that Yamaha consoles were chosen for this location, as was the case with the first two Eastern Star Church campuses, and that console familiarity by church staff members plays a large part. “Another deciding factor for us was the similarity in the M7CL experience as compared to the PM5D. We felt it was important for volunteers to be able to move from monitors to FOH with as little change as possible.

Additional audio system components include 12 NEXO PS15s and four PS10s, NEXO Alpha Subs, eight 4×4 NXAMPs, and one 4×1 NXAMP. CSD also installed DLP 10K Digital Projectors, a Panasonic PTZ Cam System, and ETC and Leprecon lighting systems. Two Yamaha P3500S amps, two P7000S amps, Aviom Personal Mixing, Aviom Digital Snake, and Worx Audio speakers are used in perimeter rooms.

Sound Works Productions Supports ALS Walk

CHICAGO—Now in its ninth year, the Les Turner Foundation ALS Walk 4 Life recently took place at Montrose Harbor in Chicago, and turned to Sound Works Productions (Frankfort, Illinois) for their audio production needs. The Walk4Life is one of the world’s largest ALS gatherings, and this year more than 5,000 walkers gathered to add to the already $6 million in pledges received since the Foundation began.

“The Foundation determined that this year they needed a sound system that would let speeches and music be heard throughout the entire park setting,” states Daniel Nickleski, Sound Works Productions, Inc. “We decided that our NEXO GEO S12 system would be the perfect fit.” The audio rig was comprised of seven NEXO GEO S1210s and one GEO S1230 line array per side along with four RS18 Ray Subs per side and three NEXO NXAMP 4x4s. The walkers were treated to music by Beatles cover band American English whose engineer, Nickleski said, was ‘absolutely thrilled with the NEXO sound system and one of the best mid-sized line arrays he has ever mixed on.’

“Every last person could hear all speeches without issue,” Nickleski added. “At the end of the event, the client said they were thrilled with the quality of audio and service we provided.”

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – OCTOBER 2011: Douglas Cuomo’s remarkable aptitude for creating engaging music across genres has earned him renown in the concert halls and on the operatic and theatrical stages of the world. To appreciate the tremendous scope of Cuomo’s work, it may be sufficient to note that his work has been commissioned by both Chanticleer and Britney Spears. But Cuomo also maintains a prolific career as a composer for film and television, where his ability to create genuine music of any style is a rare and valuable commodity. Among his credits are literally hundreds of themes, scores, and incidental music for network television (including Sex and the City, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Committed), film (including In the Weeds, Naked in New York, and Lie Down with Dogs), and documentaries (including Crazy Love, America’s River, and National Geographic Explorer). Part of what explains Cuomo’s high volume of more

sr20-microphones.jpg

Milford, NH, October 12, 2011 – Earthworks Microphones’ hand-built SR20 cardioid condenser microphone has been updated with a metal mesh windscreen more traditionally associated with vocal microphones.

The SR20 is a powerful microphone and can be used in any miking scenario live or in the studio. Earthworks patented design delivers a warm and true vocal sound, while its uniform polar response provides the same precision and sound quality at the front and side of the microphone.

The windscreen can be removed, which reveals the small diaphragm tip Earthworks SR Series microphones are known for. The SR20 is in the very well-known class of versatile instrument microphones within the “Sound Reinforcement? series and is an economical choice within the Earthworks line at $599.
