SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 2011: Reel FX Creative Studios is an award-winning animation studio (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Audi, Looney Toons, Watchmen, et al.) with production facilities in Dallas, Texas and Santa Monica, California. Recently, Reel FX Creative Studios repurposed a space at its Santa Monica location to build a new 3D editing suite. The company called on industry veterans Bruce Black and Charles Pell, both members of the Motion Picture Academy with well over half a century in the business between them, to design and install the audio monitoring section in the suite. The duo have worked at such heavy-hitter studios as HBO, Light Iron Digital, Larson Sound, and others. Black has also worked for Skywalker Sound, director Michael Mann, and film mixer Paul Massey.

Citing its flexibility, high-end fidelity, and competitive price point, Black used a Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 to route, level, and condition output to more

25TH STREET RECORDING TO OPEN WITH API VISION CONSOLE

25th_street_recording.JPG

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 2011: Producer and engineer Dave Lichtenstein “has always known about API” and its “legendary” reputation. So, when he decided to open his own recording facility, he turned to API and its Vision analog console.

“It was at AES in San Francisco that I first saw the API Vision,” said Lichtenstein. There, he learned about the Vision’s all-discrete analog circuitry – a characteristic that the modern console shares with its predecessors and something that greatly appealed to him.

“I evaluated a lot of consoles in my exhaustive search for my studio’s centerpiece,” said Lichtenstein. “I love the sound of vintage analog consoles and was considering going that route, but I was wary of the inevitable maintenance and downtime that would be involved. The fact that the Vision is entirely discrete and has great modern features, such as extensive surround capabilities, along with powerful automation and more

CINCINNATI, OHIO – SEPTEMBER 2011: For over a century, God’s Bible School & College in Cincinnati, Ohio has been preparing young people for effective careers in the service of the church, both at home and overseas. A fully accredited college, GBSC offers its students a well-balanced curriculum together with all the social amenities of the larger colleges in the Buckeye State. Among its architectural gems is a beautiful 1,000-seat chapel housed within the Knapp Memorial Building, which, until recently, limped along with an underpowered and semi-functional sound reinforcement system. A new collection of Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers has breathed new life into the chapel – and at a very affordable price.

The musical portions of the services held by GBSC are best described as classical, infused with elements of southern gospel. Apart from the steady accrual of speaker failures in the old system, the school’s music department more

A GIFT FOR SAINT NICHOLAS: ASHLY GEAR TURNS TERRIBLE SOUND TO GOLD

st_nicholas_1.JPG

TARPON SPRINGS, FLORIDA – SEPTEMBER 2011: St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Tarpon Springs, Florida is an impressive structure. Built in 1942, it earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places to help preserve its gorgeous exterior and breathtaking interior, which features white walls and ornate, gilded trim together with classical oil paintings and stained glass. However, as fine as St. Nicholas Church appears to the eye, its sound reinforcement has long been profoundly disappointing. Reverberant and boomy acoustics, paired with utterly ineffective audio processing and loudspeaker placement, ensured that St. Nicholas would not be eligible for a spot on the National Registry of Intelligible Places, were such a registry to exist. Recently, Tampa-based A/V integrator CSI used cutting-edge sound reinforcement technology, centered on an Ashly Audio ne8800 DSP with a WR-5 NE remote control and a Bosch steerable Vari-directional Array, to reign in the boom and splash. more

Church on the Hill’s sanctuary

Fishersville, VA – September 2011… In order to better serve its ever-expanding congregation, Church on the Hill recently opened a new building on their campus that includes a sanctuary, classrooms, and office space. Music plays a vital role in their contemporary worship services and, as such, church management recognized the importance of having a capable sound system to reinforce both the spoken word and the music performed during services. To ensure a high level of speech intelligibility and natural sounding music reproduction, the church selected a series of loudspeaker enclosures drawn from the catalog of Greensboro, NC-based WorxAudio Technologies. more

No ‘Bull’ When It Comes to Using Yamaha PM5D

robert-bull-martina-mcbride-low.jpg

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Monitor Engineer Robert Bull is known for mixing iconic artists such as Martina McBride and Michael McDonald as well as television hits such as “Nashville Star.? Bull has mixed on it all, both analog and digital. But, when it comes to digital, he prefers the Yamaha PM5D.

“I am a diehard analog guy, but there are times when analog is just not feasible, states Bull. “When I use a digital console, I need to have confidence in the gear, which is why I always request a PM5D. I need to get around on the console very quickly in a manner that works for me, and the Yamaha PM5D allows me to do that by having so much of where I need to get to on the mixing surface, that I don’t have to take my eyes off of the stage.?

Bull said that whether doing more

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 2011: Symetrix announces the release of the Zone Mix 761, which adds ARC-WEB compatibility to the powerful feature set formerly found in the predecessor Zone Mix 760, one of the company’s most popular products. ARC-WEB allows integrators to build customized interfaces that operate on users’ smartphones or Internet-connected computers. In addition to ARC-WEB compatibility, the Zone Mix 761 shines with a modernized aesthetic similar to that of Symetrix Jupiter series and includes a new collection of logic outputs on the rear panel.

“The Zone Mix 761 steps into the shoes of the 760, which has been among our most popular products,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. “With twelve inputs and six outputs, it excels at three of the most commonly-required functions in small- to mid-sized installations: paging with automatic ducking; flexible routing and mixing; and comprehensive processing at the input and the more

SYMETRIX AUTOMIX MATRIX 780 THE BRAINS OF MIAMI COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL’S NEW AMPHITHEATER

miami_country_day_school.JPG

MIAMI, FLORIDA – SEPTEMBER 2011: Located just north of its namesake city in Florida, Miami Country Day School (MCDS) is a private, non-denominational institution that serves 1,100 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. With a deep history and a proven record of providing first-rate educations for its students, the prestigious institution attracts the children of Miami’s performing arts and music celebrities, among others. As a result, the performing arts and music departments have an unusually high bar to meet, a fact that influenced decisions surrounding a recently completed multipurpose amphitheater in the school’s quadrangle. To ensure stunning audio performance and the flexibility to handle both simple and involved productions for a few dozen or up to seven-hundred audience members, a Symetrix Automix Matrix 780 processor serves as the brains for the new amphitheater’s audio system.

Initially, MCDS could only find sound more

FROM SONIC MUD TO SONIC GOLD DANLEY GENESIS HORNS INSTALLED IN WASILLA SPORTS CENTER

WASILLA, ALASKA – SEPTEMBER 2011: At just over 100,000 square feet, the largest public space in the city of Wasilla, Alaska is the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center. It is capable of handling 5,000 visitors, which is a common occurrence at graduations, rallies, and, of course, hockey & indoor football contests. It opened in 2004, but its original sound reinforcement system was so ineffective that the facility had to rent a sound system for every event of consequence. Even then, intelligibility was marginal. The facility recently upgraded to Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers, which, by virtue of their exceptionally well-defined pattern control, minimize the reflections that had doomed all previous solutions to deliver crisp, intelligible sound.

“The original system consisted of four mid-grade horns in the middle of the room supplemented by a collection of 70-volt ceiling speakers,” explained Phil Ballard, principal of Sound Decisions, the firm that designed more
