DANLEY DOES DOUBLE DUTY FOR RICHWOODS CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND SATELLITE LOCATION

Richwoods_ExteriorPEORIA, ILLINOIS – OCTOBER 2014: Richwoods Christian Church was founded in the late 1990s by pastor Jim Powell in Peoria, Illinois. Its congregation was initially small, a scant sixty-five people, but those congregants were motivated to grow the church. They succeeded, and today Richwoods Christian Church brings 1,400 people together every weekend, spread across four services at two locations. The larger location built its current sanctuary in a former high-end furniture store, where, despite low ceiling height, local A/V integration firm Advanced Audio and Lighting gave the church a highly-intelligible and musical sound reinforcement system based on Danley Sound Labs SH-50 full-range loudspeakers and TH-115 subwoofers. Not wanting to compromise at the satellite location, Richwoods Christian Church asked for Danley again. There, a collapsible system of self-powered Danley SH-96 loudspeakers and TH-118 subwoofers meets that goal.

“Everyone we worked with at Richwoods had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve without getting overly involved in the nuts and bolts of how it would be achieved,” said Trent Keeling, vice president at Advanced Audio and Lighting. “Quality audio was high on their priority list. They wanted a system that would deliver their very contemporary praise and worship style with authority. Because there’s a lot of musical talent in the church, they needed something that would serve everything from orchestral music to a five-piece rock band, on top of having excellent intelligibility.”

Richwoods_PerformanceWhile the church’s new location in a former furniture store would serve it well in terms of location and accessibility, it was not ideal for sound reinforcement. There was only a nineteen-foot distance between the floor and the low steel, which was compressed even further by a modest stage and drop ceiling. “That’s not a standard hang height,” laughed Keeling. “One of Richwoods’ signature programs is its Christmas pageant, which involves, at various points, up to thirty children running around stage with open omnidirectional lavalier mics. If we could place the PA twenty-five feet up and twenty-five feet forward, then just about any loudspeaker could pull that off. But here we were going to be right above the stage, sixteen feet up. That’s where you separate the men from the boys.”

Keeling’s solution was to cover the room with four Danley SH-50 full-range loudspeakers, two close-packed on each side of the stage. “Danley’s Synergy Horn loudspeakers, like the flagship SH-50, have excellent phase coherency and precise pattern control down to 350Hz and lower,” he said. “Because of that pattern control, the SH-50s can be right above the stage without collapsing into feedback. In addition, the fact that the SH-50 is a three-way enclosure gives Richwoods great vocal intelligibility.” Two flown Danley TH-115 subwoofers provide low-end support. The system is nominally stereo, but because the six hundred-plus seat room is so wide, the techs are “discouraged from doing any hard panning,” in Keeling’s words. Biamp Audia provides modest processing, Lab.gruppen amplifiers power the system, the FOH desk is a Yamaha M7, and Shure microphones provide input.

The church was so pleased with the quality of its Danley sound reinforcement system that it motivated the approach they took to designing a satellite location, Richwoods East. “They recognized that the quality of their services was an important component of Richwoods’ success,” said Keeling. “They wanted the satellite to live up to the quality of the ‘Mother Ship’.” The 500-member congregation of Richwoods East meets at an Embassy Suites ballroom using a portable, plug-and-play system. Keeling maintained the ‘Mother Ship’s’ quality by designing a ground-supported system of two self-powered Danley SH-96s and two self-powered Danley TH-115 subwoofers.

DIGGERLAND USA: FIRST CONSTRUCTION-THEMED ADVENTURE PARK BUILT UPON ASHLY

Diggerland_USAHAMMONTON, NEW JERSEY – OCTOBER 2014: Diggerland USA is the country’s first construction-themed adventure park, allowing children and their families to operate real construction equipment in a safe environment. The 14-acre park is located adjacent to its sister attraction, Sahara Sam’s Oasis, in New Jersey in the suburbs southeast of Philadelphia. Spellcaster Productions of nearby Hammonton, New Jersey designed and installed the system on a very tight timeframe; from land clearing to opening took just six months. An Ashly Audio ne24.24M modular Protea™ matrix processor outfitted with twelve inputs and twelve outputs provides all of the equalization, delay, ducking and routing for Diggerland USA, and seven Ashly KLR-3200 amplifiers power the park’s seventy-plus Community loudspeakers. Ashly’s networked neWR-5 wall-mount user control allows staff members to adjust input and volume within a given zone, and Ashly’s iPad app gives management complete control of the park’s audio from anywhere via Wi-Fi.

“While I was working on this project, our Ashly rep stopped by,” said Mike Shafer, project manager of Spellcaster Productions. “I showed him what we were up to, and he suggested the ne24.24M processor and the KLR-3200 amplifier. I did my homework and realized that moving to Ashly would save the client some money and would give us all the functionality and power we needed. We also designed and installed the sound system at Sahara Sam’s Oasis, and the client wanted to be assured Ashly would meet the same standard. I assured him that Ashly has been making quality equipment for over thirty years and that they are well known for their reliability. Ashly’s five-year warranty and my positive experiences assured him.”

The sound system permits Diggerland USA to play background music and advertisements, either of which will duck for pages made from a Shure wireless microphone or from the park’s phone system. All of the input sources feed the Ashly ne24.24M processor, which in turn feeds a rack of seven Ashly KLR-3200 two-channel amplifiers. The KLR-3200 is rated at 1600W into a 2 Ohm load, 1100W at 4 Ohms or 800 Watts per channel into a 70V line. This versatility makes it a perfect choice to power the Community Sound-centric loudspeaker system. Community D4LP loudspeakers cover indoor areas with low ceiling height, Community DP8 pendant loudspeakers cover a food pavilion and an arcade, and Community R.15 and R.35 loudspeakers throw from light poles to cover the vast outdoor spaces.

Diggerland_USA_ArcadeThe Ashly Remote App for the Apple® iPad or iPad Mini is used to provide the theme park management team with a customized wireless remote control. “I arranged it so that the app’s home page lists each zone with a radio button to select the input source,” said Shafer. “That, together with a volume slider for each zone, allows them to do everything they need to do. Because we gave them Wi-Fi throughout the park, they can make adjustments right there in the park – no walking back and forth to an equipment closet.” For staff within the arcade, the picnic area, and the concession stand, Shafer installed Ashly neWR-5 wall-mount remotes, which allow input selection and volume selection.

“The installation was smooth and straightforward,” said Shafer. “Programming the ne24.24M was easy – just a matter of connecting the right nodes and then tuning the system. Even some of the less common requests were easy, like a real-time page from a security monitoring company for afterhours if the park’s security system detects movement. The page warns intruders that the police have been called. Since the opening in June, we’ve been back to adjust things as they’ve determined how exactly they want things to function.”

PANORAMIC HOUSE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST YEAR WITH GREAT OCEAN VIEWS AND AN API 1608

Baccigaluppi_PanoramicHouseWEST MARIN, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 2014: Panoramic House is a personal recording studio and vacation home owned by John Baccigaluppi and Bobby Lurie, located on the western Marin coast north of San Francisco. The duo, who own and operate studios on both the east and west coasts (The Dock in Sacramento, CA and Mavericks in NYC), renovated the historic 1960s structure, which was built entirely from recycled architectural materials salvaged from the Bay Area. Now, Panoramic House is celebrating its first year of operation with equipment relocated from Baccigaluppi’s former recording studio, The Hangar, which includes his recently-expanded API 1608.

When the five-year-old 1608 moved to Panoramic House, it was expanded to 32 channels to accommodate the studio’s 16- and 24-track analog tape decks. “With more analog tracks, we needed more console real estate,” said Baccigaluppi. “The 1608 has served me very well. I love that it has the same API circuitry that runs its large-format consoles. Eight aux sends and eight groups paired with the modular 500-series slots make it a very versatile board. We have a lot of EQ flavors, including a handful of API 550A’s, 550b’s, and 560′s.”

Baccigaluppi’s familiarity with API equipment is a contributing factor to what has made the 1608 the heart of the new studio. “Panoramic House is definitely analog-centric,” he said. “The first console I ever worked on was an API 2488 at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and I love that the 1608 continues in that tradition. Moreover, clients are always impressed. API is a trusted name in the industry.”

Panoramic House has already been host to several big-name indie bands, including My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, and Thee Oh Sees. With the first year behind them, Baccigaluppi and Lurie are looking forward to the fall and winter in Stinson Beach and Bolinas. “It’s funny,” Baccigaluppi said, “that most of the vacation renters come to town during the summer when it’s foggy to the point that you feel like you’re in a cloud. But that’s when people take vacations, I guess. Conveniently, most musicians are touring during the summer. The other three seasons are lovely, and that’s when most musicians want to settle in and create. Plus, that’s when the surfing is the best!”

ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FIELD COMES ALIVE WITH DANLEY GENESIS HORNS AND SUBS

Roswell_HS_StadiumROSWELL, NEW MEXICO: For too many years, football fans and supporters of Roswell Independent Schools in Roswell, New Mexico suffered the poor performance of small paging horns that squawked announcements no one could understand and that emitted music no one could feel. It was a sad, uninspiring, and yet not uncommon situation. When money finally became available to make improvements, the school hired local firm J&G Electric to oversee the project. Relatively new to the Pro Audio market, Mike McClain of J&G Electric sought, without bias, the very best sounding system for his client at the most reasonable price. A thorough search turned up Danley Sound Labs, and Roswell Schools now benefit from a pair of Danley GH-60 Genesis Horns for vivid full-range output and a pair of beefy Danley DBH-218 subwoofers for low-frequency support.

“The school gave J&G Electric free reign to choose the best audio system they could, given the constraints of the budget,” explained Noel Darby of DarbyReps (Denver, CO), who represents Danley in the Rocky Mountain Region and who consulted on the design. “They had heard great things about Danley – that Danley’s designs are uniquely efficient, natural sounding, and easy to work with. I’ve been selling loudspeakers for a long time, and I believe Tom Danley’s designs really are amazing. He’s not chasing the same old woofer/tweeter or line array concept.”

Roswell_HS_Scoreboard_SpeakersGiven that the existing light poles are all behind the seating, it didn’t make sense to use a distributed system. Instead, Darby suggested an end-fired system that would split the field down the middle and provide equal coverage to the home and visitor seating. A Xilica XP-2040 2×4 processor handles modest input conditioning and system EQ, and feeds two Danley DSLA 3.3k and two Danley DSLA 6.5k amplifiers. Those amplifiers in turn power two Danley Genesis GH-60 horns and two Danley DBH-218 subwoofers mounted above and behind the scoreboard. The Genesis Horns use Danley’s patent-pending Paraline acoustical technology to gradually attenuate output at lower angles so as to deliver even SPLs to all the seats, near and far.

The install proved to be the largest hurdle to overcome. “With the original site being built in 1968, and seeing numinous additions and upgrades, we had our hands full,” said McClain. Trenching was tedious in order to avoid underground utilities and unknown paths, so we were forced to dig slowly and carefully. When it was all said and done we had over 700 feet of trench at four feet deep. In order to avoid the necessity of repeating the arduous process at a later date a second “spare” conduit was installed. Dealing with the harsh desert heat cooling the equipment was also an issue. To avoid building a structure to hold the equipment, we used a self-contained climate controlled rack to house the amps and processors. Using the assistance of a local fabricator the forty-foot tall structure holding the loudspeakers was built. “After all the sweat and heavy lifting the system worked as designed and as promised.”

Deward Timothy of Utah’s Poll Sound came in for the final tuning, which, by all accounts, didn’t take very long given the natural sound of the GH-60s and the fact that they are true point-source devices. “The school district is amazed at how much output they’re getting,” said McClain. “The coaches are ecstatic! This is a huge leap up for them, and the system will serve them well for a long, long time to come.”

ONE OF THE LARGEST HIGH SCHOOLS IN OHIO MOVES TO ASHLY

Beavercreek_HighSchool_ExteriorBEAVERCREEK, OHIO: Beavercreek High School in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek, Ohio is the third largest high school in the Buckeye State and supports an exceptionally active athletics program. The school’s girl’s basketball team has been especially successful, averaging eighteen wins per season over the past thirty-six years of coach Ed Zink’s tenure. With over 650 wins, Zink is the winningest girls high school basketball coach in Ohio’s history. Until recently however, poor sound system intelligibility put a damper on home games and dulled the excitement of award ceremonies. That’s all changed for the better with a new gymnasium sound reinforcement system centered on cost-effective Ashly Audio ne4400 Protea™ digital processing and KLR3200 amplification matched to Community R-Series loudspeakers.

“They used to have a few of what I call ‘nightclub speakers’ chained to the ceiling,” said Mike Staffan, owner of local A/V integration firm Lighthouse Sound and Communications. “The athletic director took a lot of grief about intelligibility in general, but especially at award ceremonies. Parents couldn’t hear their kids’ names being called, which is sure to generate complaints.” Under Staffan’s direction, independent engineer Jack Buttermore designed a new system in EASE that would deliver appropriate coverage, and Staffan and his staff installed it over the summer.

Inputs to the new system include Shure wireless microphones and a Denon CD/iPod player, which feed a Shure SCM800 mixer. Its mono output meets an input on an Ashly ne4400 4-In x 4-Out Protea™ Matrix Processor, which handles all necessary equalization, automatic microphone mixing and feedback suppression. The ne4400′s four outputs feed three dual-channel Ashly KLR3200 amplifiers, rated at 1,600W into a 2-Ohm load or 800W per channel into a 70V line. Four of those amplifier channels power the four Community R.35 loudspeakers that cover both sides of main floor seating. The two additional channels power ten Community R.15 loudspeakers – five to a side – for coverage of the gymnasium’s balconies.

Beavercreek_Gymnasium“I’ve been using Ashly equipment for a while now because the products are solid and, perhaps more importantly, the customer support is excellent,” said Staffan. “For me, trust and a good relationship are the most important things. Ashly is always ready to help, which is critical when I’m in the field and need answers to move an installation forward.”

“The newly installed sound system in the Beavercreek High School gymnasium is awesome, to say the least,” said James Smerz, the school’s previously besieged athletic director. “We finally have sound that covers the entire gym area with clarity and heightened volume. For the first time in the school’s history, the sound in the main gym will reach everyone effectively, even in a packed house!”

OUR LADY OF LOURDES ACADEMY ENJOYS A NEW MULTIPURPOSE GYMNASIUM WITH ASHLY POWER AND PROCESSING

OurLadyofLourdes_GymMIAMI, FLORIDA: In addition to being the alma mater of pop icon Gloria Estefan, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy (OLLA) is a paragon of Catholic academic excellence and has been since it was founded in 1963. To continue to effectively fulfill its mission in the twenty-first century, however, the school embarked on a four-phase, $15 million improvement project, which included construction of a state-of-the-art gymnasium. Revelation Sound, Inc. (RSI), a state licensed A/V specialty electrical and integration firm that has niche markets to houses of worship and their associated academic institutions since 1984, was awarded the contract for the audio, video and intercom portion of the project.

The acoustic consulting and analysis for the project was done in partnership with Robert Bernecker of SEFI Consulting in Dallas, Texas. RSI has partnered with SEFI on numerous projects, with the collaboration resulting in excellent A/V designs.

“The gymnasium is brand new construction and is intended to accommodate a huge range of functions, including masses, classroom assemblies, presentations, alumnae events, performances, and, of course, gym class and sporting events,” said Michael Melcher, president of Revelation Sound. “The A/V system had to be as easy to operate as a toaster! Thus, the A/V portion of the project features reliable, cost-effective Ashly Audio KLR-series amplifiers and an 8 x 8 Ashly ne8800 networked audio processor.”

RSI cited the value of Ashly’s superlative technical support and customer service as a key aspect of OLLA’s new system: “What we bring to the table is dependent on how our manufacturers support us,” Melcher said. “We have to be more than just a number on a sales sheet. Working with Ashly gives us that support. When we call, we always speak to a knowledgeable technician immediately – someone we know and have a relationship with. We sell that support as part of our bid. It is critical. Because Ashly provides such excellent support, we’ll stick with Ashly. We’re very conservative and very loyal.”

Inputs to OLLA’s new systems include a well-chosen collection of wireless, standard wired and podium microphones, as well as a Tascam combination CD/iPod/MP3 player and four Mystery Electronics brass court floor boxes. A roll-around rack holds a small Allen & Heath mixer, which provides one level of user control. All of the inputs wend their way to the Ashly ne8800 8-In x 8-Out Protea DSP Processor, which provides gain-sharing auto-mixing for turnkey operation. The processor in turn feeds six Ashly KLR-3200 1600W two-channel amplifiers.

“The Ashly KLR Series packs an unbelievable amount of power and reliability into a two-rack space at a price-point that is fiercely competitive,” Melcher said. “The value to our customers is great, and the fact that the KLR-3200 can power low-impedance boxes or up to 800W into a 70-volt constant voltage system is a huge plus.”

The KLR-3200 amps power three clusters of three Renkus-Heinz CFX-151 loudspeakers each, plus two Renkus-Heinz CFX-18s subwoofers flown above center court.

Members of OLLA’s staff harness the new system’s flexibility using three Ashly neWR-5 Network Programmable Wall Remotes. As the school completes its iPad integration, that control will also be available via the Ashly Remote App for the Apple® iPad and iPad Mini. Like the future iPad control, the three neWR-5s provide preset configuration, input selection, and overall volume control. Because different uses require different configurations, the presets automatically turn different collections of loudspeakers and/or subwoofers on or off along with other subtleties, such as enhanced bass output for games.

To round out the project, Revelation Sound installed a large EIKI Hi-Def projector mounted on an SVS lift and paired it with a retractable Da-Lite screen.

The result: An excellent user-friendly, high-tech A/V system that meets the needs of one “constantly evolving” learning environment that aims at assisting the school to effectively fulfill its mission.

AUSTRALIA’S STUDIO ONE FLIGHT UP ACHIEVES “FANTASTIC” SOUND WITH AN API 1608

Studio_One_Flight_UpSYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – OCTOBER 2014: A self-proclaimed ‘analog-minded person,’ Nick Irving, owner of Studio One Flight Up in Sydney, works with independent singers, songwriters and musicians who are driven to create great records. While the studio is home to several vintage analog outboard gear pieces, Irving wanted a brand-new, reliable analog console to bring together the sound he works to achieve. Deb Sloss of Studio Connections Australia advised him towards a 32-channel API 1608 console, fitted with twenty-four classic API 550A EQs, and eight 560 EQs.

“It’s a dream console, really,” said Irving. “Computers make great multi-track recorders, but for the actual work of recording and mixing sessions, I need to be ‘hands-on”.” The moveable size of the 1608 played a role in Irving’s decision, allowing the studio to eventually grow into a new building. It also comes in 16-channel sections, allowing the actual console to expand, or even be retrofitted. “It’s chock full of API’s sensational EQs and mic preamps, silky-smooth faders, nice, bright, clear LED lights in all the buttons, and full metering with the brightly-lit VU meters.”

Studio One Flight Up uses the 1608 for both recording and mixing needs. “My sounds just get better and better now that I have an API console. Switching the metering between input and direct out is fantastic and very useful. Having buttons to engage the insert points is also a great and useful feature.” With the 1608, Irving and his crew do not need extra DI boxes, as each channel of the console has an instrument input. “It’s also great that the power supplies are quiet enough that they don’t have to be housed in a separate machine room,” Irving added.

Now that the studio renovations are complete, Irving is recording and collaborating on an album with Grammy award-winner Myles Heskett (ex-Wolfmother). “It is proving to be lots of fun. We’re really enjoying working on the API console. Everything I’ve done on it sounds fantastic – solid, crisp, clear.” Irving proclaimed, “I’ll never need another console in my lifetime!”

WIDE HIVE STUDIOS REOPENS WITH EXPANDED 48-CHANNEL API 1608

Howe_VeilleuxALBANY, CALIFORNIA: Wide Hive Studios in San Francisco’s Bay Area re-opened its doors earlier this year after a number of recent renovations and updates. A decade ago, veteran producer, engineer, and musician Gregory Howe folded his costly studio in San Francisco for a cozy, less expensive space in nearby Albany, California. He centered his Albany studio around a 16-channel API 1608, which he later expanded to 32 channels through a 16-channel expander. Now, with his most recent round of upgrades, Howe has added another 16-channel expander to create a 48-channel API 1608.

“I’ve been working with API gear for a long, long time,” Howe said. “I love the API sound. To me, it walks the perfect line between cleanliness, straight-up rock, and audiophile fidelity.” The recently-expanded 48-channel 1608 unifies the studio’s sound, streamlines its workflow, and also allows clients to tap into Howe’s massive collection of world-class outboard gear with ease. “The new sixteen channels primarily serve as returns from the equipment racks. We now have the flexibility and sound to do whatever we want.”

Wide Hive books jazz, funk, hip-hop, and soul artists exclusively. Since the console’s expansion, Howe has used it to record several tracks, which are receiving airplay, brisk sales, and profuse blessings from critics. Of note, swing jazz guitarist Calvin Keys cut Electric Keys with the help of the 1608 and the Wide Hive Players, an in-house collective group of jazz musicians.

Howe’s commitment to recording is not lost on his listeners. Reviews of Wide Hive releases never fail to comment on their excellent sound quality. “I’m a huge believer in analog summing,” he shares. “Digital summing involves a massive calculation that necessitates sacrifices. I can hear those sacrifices in the music. I’m looking forward to the cohesion we’ll have when the whole console is API.”
