rich_breen.JPG

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA – MARCH 2011: Rich Breen’s quick and early ascension to the upper strata of professional recording a quarter-century ago was not owing to a flashy style or a voguish sound, but rather a well-considered, well-rounded approach to sound recording that was, and continues to be, in equal measures scientific and artistic. He holds a degree in electrical engineering and has studied music, a synergism that has contributed to his roster of clients and recordings that include the Yellowjackets, Charlie Haden, Dianne Reeves, Herbie Hancock, Norah Jones, members of the Rolling Stones, and Ramsey Lewis. Breen has been nominated for the Non-Classical Engineering Grammy, and dozens of his recordings have been nominated or won Grammy Awards in various categories over the years. Last year he won a Latin Grammy for the Ivan Lins/Metropolis Orchestra Recording. In recent years, Breen has become more

EDINA, MINNESOTA – MARCH 2011: Pinstripes delivers to its patrons the unique combination of superb Italian-American fare, stately lanes of bowling, bocce courts, and banquet and party space for up to six-hundred guests. Until recently, only the denizens of suburban Chicago enjoyed Pinstripes in its two locations, but success spurred the owners to open a third location in Edina, Minnesota, just past the Minneapolis city limit. GMK Integrated Systems (Lombard, Illinois) designed and installed the audio systems in all three locations, turning, in the newest location, to Symetrix’ recently-introduced, “zero learning curve” Jupiter hardware and “app-based” software for system processing in the banquet rooms.

The audio systems in the older Pinstripes locations worked well enough, but when GMK system designer Chris King heard about Symetrix’ new Jupiter series, the functional fit seemed perfect, despite Jupiter’s lower cost. Unique in the industry, the Symetrix Jupiter hardware operates with software “apps” more

Audinate’s Dante Technology Graduates to Millikin University

Portland, OR-March 7, 2011-For over 100 years, Millikin University, a private comprehensive university located in Decatur, Ill., has had a unique approach to education. It stresses performance learning, requiring students to practice their learning both inside and outside the classroom. This is just what Ronnie Dean, professor and technical director for the Music Industries Program, which includes Music Business and Commercial Music majors, does.

Dean, who has been with the school for 26 years, started in Nashville, Tenn., as a radio, television and recording engineer working at various studios on many different projects. In his spare time, he taught part-time at Belmont University, which is where he caught the teaching bug. When Millikin offered him a full-time position as technical director of their Music Industries Program, he packed his car and family and moved to Decatur.

For many years, he taught his students analog recording in more

Main Light Introduces the LED-Powered LightStar Fiber Optic Illuminator

The Main Light LightStar LED-powered fiber optic illuminatorMain Light Industries, who manufacture and rent a wide variety of fiber optic-based products, introduces the LED-powered LightStar™ fiber optic illuminator, part of DiCon Lighting’s FiberLamp product line. LightStar uses an innovative LED light engine comprised of Red, Green, Blue, and White LEDs for a broad spectrum of color choices as well as reducing the power draw and weight. A key feature of the LED-powered LightStar is that it produces an output comparable to, or greater than, a fiber optic illuminator using a 150-watt metal halide light source. In a white color mix, the LightStar is equivalent to the 150-watt metal halide powered illuminators. By using an LED light engine there is no transmission loss with a color filter, so in deep, saturated colors, the LightStar has a greater output that is equivalent to 250-watt illuminators. more
