Muzeek World Upgrades Tavern with Yamaha CL5 Digital Console

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The Belly Up Tavern is a live music venue, located in Solana Beach, California. We have all types of music almost every night bringing the best in new, up-and-coming artists as well as established legends in genres ranging from alternative rock, rock, reggae, and hip-hop to blues, folk, jazz, Latin & more!

Seating approximately 600, The Belly Up Tavern recently upgraded from analog to digital at the monitor position with a Yamaha CL5 and Rio 3224-D and Rio 1608-D purchased from Muzeek World in San Juan Capistrano, CA. The company also provided a new Antari F-3 lighting system and fog machines.

“Yamaha products are built like tanks, and the sound quality of the new CL is amazing,” states John Sardari of Muzeek World. “The features on the CL are more than what anyone needs, and the learning curve is quick, but most of all, the Yamaha service to get something exchanged or repaired is the quickest out of all manufacturers.”

The CL5 has been getting a lot of use at the tavern. “We just shot our second season of Live At The Belly Up for KPBS in San Diego and used the CL5 and the Nuendo Live function to multi-track the show, states Damian DeRobbio, Belly Up Tavern Production Manager. Nuendo Live has been flawless, easy to use, and really sounds great. We are now using it to record bands live and release them on our web site (www.bellyupmusic.com). The CL5 that we purchased is actually used for monitor applications, yet because it is so compact, we have also used it for FOH when bands are carrying their own monitor console and are considering a second one for FOH. We love the ease of use and the fact that any engineer can jump on and operate it.”

DeRobbio said he really likes being able to use the iPad to dial in mixes. “The power in this little console is amazing! Not to mention how great it looks in the dark! I would highly recommend this console to anyone, touring or not. You can’t go wrong with the CL series.”

ASHLY PROCESSING, AMPLIFICATION, AND CONTROL AT ROCHESTER, NEW YORK’S HISTORIC SIBLEY BUILDING

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK – JANUARY 2014: The “new” Sibley Building in downtown Rochester, New York rose out of the ashes of the original Sibley Building, which served as the city’s first department store and burned down in 1906. It has remained an architectural fixture ever since and was admitted to National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The lower levels serve as retail space and help to anchor Rochester’s current downtown revitalization. Its public areas recently benefited from a sound system overhaul that centered on processing, amplification, and control provided by commercial audio manufacturer Ashly Audio of nearby Webster, New York.

“Although it had been fine when it went in, the old sound system was twenty years old,” said Alan Clayton, sales representative with the local integration firm, The Presentation Source, that designed and installed the new system. “The owners wanted to add some outdoor loudspeakers to the entrances, and they wanted to be able to play different music sources at different entrances. The old system had zero multi-zone support.” The different music sources will be used to affect some innocuous crowd control: some exciting music at the sidewalk entrances to draw in passers by and some not-so-exciting music near a different entrance to discourage loitering.

A new Ashly ne24.24M modular matrix processor outfitted with four inputs and twelve outputs forms the heart of the new system, and an Ashly neWR-5 networked remote control provides relevant user controls. “The neWR-5 is a great way to give the client just the right amount of control,” said Clayton. “It’s a fine line. I want to allow them to do everything they want to do, but not allow them to get into trouble. The neWR-5 lets me hone in on just the right amount.” To power the existing indoor loudspeakers as well as the new One Systems outdoor loudspeakers, Clayton installed an eight-channel, two-rack space Ashly ne8250.70 amplifier.

“A lot of things go into choosing this kind of equipment, not the least of which is the inclusion of local manufacturers when possible,” said Clayton. “That’s especially significant given the historic nature of the Sibley Building. Just as important is our previous experience with Ashly equipment and Ashly support. Both are excellent. The equipment sounds great, holds up reliably, and the people at Ashly are very easy to work with.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality & high performance signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets. The 37-year old company is headquartered in Webster, New York U.S.A.

Symetrix SymNet Edge Deployed at Atlanta’s Stone Mountain Park

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JANUARY 2014: On a clear day, you can see downtown Atlanta from Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park, and crowds flock there from the city and the surrounding states to enjoy the park’s awe-inspiring geology and nature. In addition to a massive laser, fireworks, pyrotechnics, and projection show that has operated on summer evenings since 1983 and is almost synonymous with Stone Mountain Park, the park’s attractions include the mountain itself, camping, a cable car to the summit, a collection of historic plantation buildings, Geyser Towers playground, the Sky Hike family ropes adventure course, a children’s activity area, and Crossroads Base Camp, a town with restaurants, retail stores, a movie theater, mini-golf, and craft stores. With so much going on, the owners hired Atlanta-based Full Spectrum to begin deploying a Symetrix SymNet Edge Dante networked audio DSP system that will grow and eventually expand to cover all of the park’s attractions via an inexpensive CAT5 network.

“The owners built Crossroads about a decade ago, and the original sound system did a passable job of supplying background music,” explained Paul Creasy, partner at Full Spectrum. “But as the development grew and several of the establishments set their sights on more and different events, the constraints of the original system became apparent. The upshot was that they needed something that was completely flexible. Moreover, the owners wanted to expand system coverage to several of the other attractions, but they didn’t want to have to start from scratch every time they expanded. The Symetrix SymNet Edge DSP system offered the perfect solution. Each Edge frame has modular I/O, and its open architecture programming allows us to customize system features and performance. The fact that the Edge DSP system networks via Dante will allow us to easily expand across the park.” Currently, eight SymNet Edge frames populate Crossroads, each in a different building.

“We do niche A/V,” said Creasy. “You can’t call up a preset for a place like Stone Mountain Park. I appreciate the flexibility and intuitive layout of SymNet Composer open architecture software. It’s easy to work with, even with a complex system like this one. Moreover, any time I have a question, Symetrix’ tech support is available and ready with an answer.” Within the next year, Full Spectrum plans to expand the sound reinforcement system via Dante and additional remote Edge DSP units to incorporate the Plantation, the Sky Ride cable car complex, and, perhaps most exciting, Stone Mountain’s famous laser show!

ISE Line-up To Feature Presentation by FSR’s Jon Melchin

Melchin to Share Expert Insight on Benefits of Building Information Modeling

Woodland Park, NJ – Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the world’s best attended tradeshow for the professional AV and electronic systems industry, will feature a comprehensive educational agenda including a presentation by Jon Melchin, FSR Inc.’s Director of Architectural Development. Melchin will offer an expert look into the benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM) – a 3D design, modeling and simulation technology that has changed the way that architecture is practiced. The presentation is scheduled for 11:30 – 12:30 on Wednesday, 5 February – day 2 of ISE, in Room D204 of the RAI. ISE, a joint venture between InfoComm International and CEDIA, will take place from 4 – 6 February at the RAI in Amsterdam.

Based on extensive experience in the architectural industry, Melchin will impart knowledge and share his views that BIM eclipses the 3D representation of the physical products and functional characteristics of a structure to provide a shared knowledge resource for everyone involved in the design process. The session’s appeal extends to architects as well as interior designers, engineers, contractors, facility owners, AV consultants and system integrators. Discussions will illustrate the opportunity for AV professionals to become involved on the ground level of a project, and explore an actual project highlighting benefits of BIM.

“The ‘I’ in BIM should stand for ‘Involvement’,” said Melchin. “This presentation will invite the members of the audience to participate in a discussion regarding all the advantages of BIM and all the people that can benefit from its implementation. I am delighted to bring my experience to a diverse group of international professionals at ISE!”

Melchin, an accomplished speaker and a Passport Provider with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (AIA-CES), works nationally with the architectural and design community to facilitate the specification of FSR products. Melchin has authored numerous articles that have been published in international trade publications targeting the construction and audiovisual industries, and has over 12 years of experience in the AV business.

FSR will exhibit at ISE in Hall 1, Stand N3. Further information regarding all FSR products can be found at: www.fsrinc.com.

Arsenio Audio Staff (Fist) Pumped About Yamaha CL Digital Consoles

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The Arsenio Hall Show premiered in September 2013 and features a mix of comedy, music and celebrity guests, adding a new perspective to the late-night scene. Hosted by comedian and actor Arsenio Hall, the daily, one-hour nationally syndicated late-night talk show is anchored by the Tribune Broadcasting Station Group and produced by CBS Television Distribution.

Peter Baird is the sound system designer as well as the music mixer for The Arsenio Hall Show and together with the production mixer, house and monitor engineers, chose five Yamaha CL Digital Audio Consoles and six Rio3224-D input/output boxes to kick off the season. Two CL5s and one CL3 are used at front of house with two CL5s at the monitor mix position.

“When production mixer Ish Garcia asked me to come in as the show’s music mixer, we spent some time together strategizing about what an ideal system would look like, states Baird. We knew the show would be very music-heavy and wanted the system requirements to check four main boxes: 1) 160 inputs available to split between the house band, guest artists, and production, 2) tight integration and future-proofing, 3) stability and reasonable immunity from buzzes, hums, and grounding issues, and 4) incontestably great sound.”

Baird said he did a lot of research and was surprised to find that most major professional audio manufacturers still think in terms of single consoles with local input/output resources rather than integrated, networked systems. “It’s true that some manufacturers have implemented various modes of moving audio around including MADI and EtherSound, but only Yamaha had really perfected the relationship between separate console operators using shared resources. And, the more I read about Dante, the more I thought a large Dante network might be the best answer for us.”

Garcia and Baird have been through the audio selection process before, having been the mixing team on Lopez Tonight and, explains Baird, “in a project like The Arsenio Hall Show, the audio team needs to be able to move inputs and outputs around quickly and flexibly to deal with whatever the production team might throw at us. For example, we need to be able to quickly integrate any number of players suddenly showing up to sit in with the house band, while at the same time keeping the whole system as simple and understandable as possible for the operators. Yamaha’s incremental approach to console operations and CentraLogic™ meant that our FOH and Monitor Mixers, James Young and Greg Keslake, were already largely familiar with the console surface conventions from the very first day.”

Baird added that the economics of networked audio are not insignificant. “Traditionally a show like The Arsenio Hall Show would have at least three 56 pair of three-way transformer splitters with all of the associated interconnect copper between them, and in some cases, hundreds and hundreds of feet. Those 504 outputs (3 x 56 x 3) would feed separate consoles, with each output requiring a separate head amp. As mixers, we know that the best-sounding consoles are the ones with the best head amps, and a console with 64 top-drawer head amps costs more money than one with 64 mediocre head amps. But a networked system only needs one really great head amp per channel no matter how many consoles it’s connected to! With the CL series having only 8 head amps on board, Yamaha was able to spend time and money making the console as ergonomically correct as possible rather than trying to re-engineer head amp design to fit a small footprint. Also, in the case of Dante, local interconnects are on Cat 6 cable, with point-to-point connections on fiber, a monumental savings over the same capabilities in copper. And to clarify, the head amps in the Rio3224-D input/output box are spectacular! They are clear and detailed, yet with great body, warmth, and musicality; a great foundation for a system in a critical installation like The Arsenio Hall Show.”

Monitor Engineer, Greg Keslake says he’s a big fan of Yamaha digital consoles having been introduced to digital over 15 years ago with the Yamaha 01V, and since that time, has extensively used all of the larger format consoles. “We are using Dante exclusively for FOH, Monitors and Music Production, and I am even using a Dante MY16 Card in my house monitor console for high level returns from production.”

Keslake said for monitors he’s using one CL5 dedicated to the house band and one dedicated to the guest bands. “The house band is using the new Aviom 360′s, and I am sending the band each a mixture of direct outs, mixes and matrices. This has given them the comfort of being able to adjust the instruments of their choice very quickly but hasn’t limited my ability to supplement their mixes as needed. The Yamaha CL has also made it extremely easy to swap around what channels I send the house band based on weekly sit-in artists via Dante patching.”

On the guest band console, Keslake has dedicated mixes 1-16 as stereo in-ears, 17-24 as wedges, matrix’s 1-7 are effects sends, and matrix 8 is a drum sub mix. “The dedicated mixes have allowed me to have a very good starting point for almost any guest band with very little information. I have found the ability to map my own channels to custom fader banks immensely valuable specifically on the CL5 guest band console. I am using the C5 and C6 banks to map my daily used mixes enabling me to bounce around very quickly between them. I was also extremely impressed with the addition of the Premium Rack in the CL Series.”

With an audience of 201, James Young, front of house engineer is using a CL3 for the house band with six stems to the CL5 production console: left, right, sub, two vocal stems, lead and BGV, and a ‘guest’ stem for when someone sits in with the house band. Guest bands land in a separate CL5 with a similar 6 stem set up. “The Dante network has been very stable, and the Yamaha CL consoles are very easy to set up and use with classic Yamaha reliability. I also appreciate the extra DCA’s, effects rack, and custom fader banks.”

LSU ROARS WITH DANLEY!

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA – JANUARY 2014: The Louisiana State University Tigers football team plays all of its home games at Tiger Stadium on the school’s Baton Rouge campus. Nicknamed “Death Valley,” the stadium’s deafening roar of 92,500 Tigers fans is notorious for scrambling the communications and sapping the confidence of the Tigers’ unlucky opponents. Indeed, the NCAA ranked Tiger Stadium as the loudest stadium in college football, noting as an example that fans’ euphoric response to a last-minute LSU touchdown in 1988 measured as a minor earthquake on the campus seismograph! Despite this, Tiger Stadium persisted until recently with an underpowered sound reinforcement system that one list-serve commenter likened unfavorably to a car radio. No more. With a beefy Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system that includes eighteen Jericho Horns and six “Rock Monster” subwoofers, Tiger Stadium’s music playback system is now positioned to whip LSU fans to even greater fervor.

“The old system was expressly designed for public address, not music playback,” explained Larry Lucas, director of audio engineering for Anthony James Partners (Richmond, Virginia) and the person responsible for designing LSU’s new sound reinforcement system. “Given the game-day experience demanded from fans these days, a serious upgrade was a necessity. The point-source system that we designed flanks the LED screen on the north end of the stadium and throws eight-hundred feet across to the south end zone seating. With the Danley Jericho Horns, we were able to throw 8kHz that full distance with program material that measured 105dBA. That’s an unprecedented technical leap!” Baker Audio of Norcross, Georgia installed the system.

Fourteen Danley J3-64 full-range Jericho Horns comprise the bulk of the new system, while four Danley J4-31 high-frequency Jericho Horns contribute to the system’s amazing high-end throw. Six Danley TH-812 “Rock Monster” subwoofers fill out the bottom of the system with thunderous low end. Four Danley SH-96s, four Danley SH-64s, four Danley SM-80s, and twenty Danley SH-MINIs provide fill for areas not directly covered by the Jericho Horns. A 32-channel Yamaha LS9 provides a familiar front end, while a QSC Q-Sys processing system feeds twenty-four Lab.gruppen PLM 10000Q and 20000Q amplifiers behind the scenes.

Mike Hedden, co-founder and president of Danley Sound Labs commented. “We measured the frequency response of the completed system at hundreds of positions around the stadium and the system is remarkably consistent with solid bass down into the mid 20Hz region and top end extending into the 10kHz range even at seats eight-hundred feet away. This is unprecedented performance in a venue this size and could only be achieved within the limitations of the scoreboard using Danley’s unique technologies.”

The north end scoreboard sits over eighty feet from ground level, and each loudspeaker and subwoofer had to be lifted individually by crane to that height. Then the Baker Audio rigging crew set up a beam trolley system with rigging motors to lift each set into position, to secure final rigging hardware, and to lock in the angles and aiming points. Because Tiger Stadium is in a hurricane zone, everything had to be slightly over-engineered to make sure that the rigging tolerances would hold up to hurricane force winds.

“There are always questions about how a system’s real life performance will compare to the acoustical models we work with in the design process,” commented Chris Moore, senior project manager with Baker Audio. “Given the throw distances at Tiger Stadium, a few degrees in coverage pattern or small variables in the overall acoustic performance could have been very time consuming to correct in the field. No one wants to do a redesign in the field, especially given the rigging elements that we had to use on this job. Thankfully, the Danley speakers performed exactly as the design models predicted they would, so we did not have to change any rigging angles or aiming points once we had the speakers hanging in the air. That made the installation process fast and efficient. It’s always a good day when everything performs as planned.”

“The Danley J3-64 Jericho Horns, together with the additional Danley fill speakers, combined to provide uniform coverage throughout the stadium, including the far upper end zone seating,” said Doug Stancil, senior engineer with Baker Audio. “The coverage was complicated by Tiger Stadium’s extended sideline seating, which reaches up to 175 feet at its highest point. The Danley system covers all of those seats very well. I was also impressed by the performance of the Danley TH-812 subs in the far field. Although I have been in stadiums where the low end starts to fall off at the fifty-yard line, this is definitely not the case at Louisiana State University. Fans will feel the full impact of the ‘Tiger Roar’ wherever they sit!”
