PreSonus Ships Innovative StudioLive AI-series Active Integration PA Loudspeakers

Baton Rouge, Louisiana – January 2014…  PreSonus is shipping its new StudioLive™ AI-series Active Integration Loudspeakers, the first active loudspeakers that deliver studio-monitor accuracy onstage. The new line includes the full-range StudioLive 312AI, 315AI, and 328AI and the StudioLive 18sAIsubwoofer. All models are available immediately.

A key component of the StudioLive AI’s design is its use of Active Integration technology. Active Integration combines wireless and wired networking and communications with powerful DSP to create a unified working environment.

StudioLive AI-series speakers incorporate Fulcrum Acoustics’ TQ™ Temporal Equalization algorithms. Taking advantage of Active Integration’s ample DSP, TQ employs multiple, fully addressable Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to eliminate horn reflections and to correct linear time and amplitude anomalies in coaxial systems. Collaborating with Fulcrum Acoustics’ co-founder, Dave Gunness, PreSonus software designers incorporated custom TQ algorithms with dynamics processing, FFT tools, and performance monitoring into the onboard DSP. The result is a PA system with remarkably clear, coherent, studio-quality sound.

Each full-range, powered, 3-way loudspeaker relies on a custom-designed, CoActual™ 8-inch coaxial speaker with a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. Triamplified, Class D power amplifiers in each model deliver a combined 2,000 watts of power.

The StudioLive 312AI comes equipped with a 12-inch ferrite speaker to handle low-frequency reproduction, while the 315AI employs a 15-inch woofer, and the StudioLive 328AI features dual 8-inch ferrite speakers, enabling it to deliver high-powered performance in a noticeably streamlined and compact enclosure.

Each full-range system has a combo XLR/TRS line input and an XLR microphone input with an XMAX™ Class A mic preamplifier and 12V phantom power, as well as an XLR audio throughput. The full-range speaker systems are pole-mountable and have ergonomic side handles, interlocking stacking, and M10 fly points. All enclosures are of lightweight plywood construction.

Three operation modes allow the user to choose DSP presets for their application, such as MP3 playback, live performance, or stage monitoring. Users can also create a custom preset using SL Room Control and store it onboard for use later.

In addition to the full-range, 3-way systems, PreSonus is offering the StudioLive 18sAI, a powered, 18-inch, ferrite subwoofer designed to complement the full-range StudioLive AI speakers while still being flexible enough to work with other powered loudspeakers. A 1,000W amplifier powers the subwoofer. The StudioLive 18sAI offers stereo line inputs (XLR/¼-inch combo) and full-range stereo line outputs (XLR) with a switchable, low-cut crossover.

All StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers include an Ethernet port and a USB port with a Wi-Fi module to connect to SL Room Control software over a wireless network. Expected to be available in Spring 2014, SL Room Control is a speaker-management application for Mac OS X®, Windows®, and iPad that provides both individual and grouped speaker control and includes a 31-band graphic EQ and an 8-band parametric EQ, muting, soloing, and level control, in addition to performance monitoring (over temperature, click detection, and excursions). A network-setup wizard will be included.

Custom accessories for the AI-series speakers include a mountable Sub Dolly to make hauling the 18sAI subwoofer easy and a pull-tested Sub Pole to mount a full-range system atop the 18sAI. An M10 Kit, which contains four M10 eyebolts, lets you fly any full-range model in a permanent installation. Protective covers for the 312AI, 328AI, 315AI, and 18sAI are also available.

U.S. MAP/street prices are expected to be $1,399.95 for the StudioLive 312AI, $1,499.95 for the StudioLive 328AI, $1,599.95 for the StudioLive 315AI, and $1,299.95 for the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer. All models are available immediately. For more information visit www.presonus.com/products/live-sound-reinforcement

Casino Lounge Upgrades with New Yamaha CIS Series

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Already outfitted with Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems equipment, Tulalip Casino Resort in Tulalip, Washington recently upgraded its Destinations Lounge audio system with the new Yamaha Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) product line. The system includes one MTX3 processor, two XMV4280 amplifiers, six VXS8 speakers, 16 VSC8W speakers, and two VXS10SW subs, all purchased on the recommendation of Clarity Media Group (CMG), Lake Oswego, Oregon.

“We decided to use the Yamaha CIS products primarily based on the sound quality of the demo units we listened to, states Travis Cibolski, co-owner and system designer, CMG. We also appreciated the system’s ability to integrate with the existing infrastructure to offer simple operation for our customer.”

Cibolski said CMG wanted to create a relaxing and high-end environment in the Destination Lounge. The audio is accompanied by a 4K Atmosphere video system displaying music being played by the artists, a mix of music videos, “mood” music which contains pictures of nature, cityscapes, etc. with music, and “digital karaoke” style scene with a live band covering songs. Each band member is played on a different TV appearing on four HD screens. For this reason, stereo in every seat was a must. The wide dispersion of the Yamaha CIS speakers allowed us to do this without cluttering the ceiling with lots of speakers. Surface mounted speakers are used for the entry and placed between suspended ceiling panels. The Yamaha speakers are compact enough to be completely hidden, offering pleasing sound with a low visual impact.”

“We knew that this system needed to be high end and sound crystal clear at all listening levels, while maintaining the aesthetics of the space,” states Aaron Jackson, Audio Visual Technical Engineer, at Tulalip Casino. “I fell in love with Yamaha products after CMG installed a head-to-toe Yamaha/NEXO system in the Canoes Cabaret, our live music venue. Our Destinations Lounge system sounds amazing through the entire spectrum and has beautifully uniform coverage in every seat. We have come to expect that when we buy a Yamaha product; it’s going to work, it’s going to look great, and it’s going to sound amazing. Bottom line for us is, Yamaha has struck the perfect balance of price and quality.”

The Yamaha CIS product offerings have been created specifically for installed sound market applications where there may not be an experienced audio operator running the system; for example, restaurants, retail outlets, public address systems within the transportation industry, convention centers, hotel ballrooms.

Amos Lee Tour Takes Two Yamaha CLs on The Road in Support of Latest CD

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Amos Lee is an American singer-songwriter whose musical style encompasses folk, rock and soul. Born in Philadelphia, the 36-year old is embarking on a new tour in support of his sixth CD, “Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song.” This CD follows the release of his album ‘Mission Bell’ that debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 chart. Currently finishing the fall leg of the tour, Lee and the crew will be hitting the road again in February for the winter leg.

TC Furlong of Lake Forest, Illinois is supporting Lee’s tour with a rental package including a Yamaha CL5 digital audio console at front of house, a CL1 for monitors, two Rio3224-D input/output boxes positioned onstage, along with wireless IEM units for the band. The full-service, live sound company specializes in rentals, live events, sales, and services, and is an authorized dealer of over 100 professional audio lines with a vast rental inventory including Yamaha Commercial Audio Series, Sennheiser, Shure, Meyer Sound Laboratories, and many others. They provide audio production rental systems large and small, as well as support to the sound installation market.

‘When front of house engineer, BJ Pendleton, initially approached us with his tour request, we looked at several configurations but quickly landed on the Yamaha CL platform, states Chris Wintz, Rental/Project Manager, TC Furlong. As a rental house, we had plenty of digital console options, but the CL feature set was a perfect match with BJ’s tour spec: superior sound quality, flexible configuration, small footprint, and easy to set-up/strike. He was great to work with, and we were happy to handle cartage, on-site training, 24×7 support, and frequency coordination.”

Pendleton has been using Yamaha digital consoles for years. “I’ve spent a good bit of time with the LS9 and the M7CL, and fell in love with the PM5D, states Pendleton. The 5D and I became good friends at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA where I was the house engineer.” Pendleton said while he’s a big fan of pre-training on new gear, he’s a firm believer that one learns by doing, and so he dove right into the CL5.

“In general, I really like the Yamaha CL platform and the ease of function, says Pendleton. The approach can’t be beat, and the progression from the M7CL to the CL Series is why I ultimately went with CL consoles for our tour. Taking a highly functional platform and combining it with top-notch pre-amps in expandable stage racks made the decision a no brainer for me.”

Pendleton added that both he and monitor engineer Reuben Cantu, are using Dante networking to communicate between the CL5 at FOH, CL1 in monitor world, and the two RIO racks tied together on the stage. “It took me a second to wrap my head around it, but the Dante network has been rock solid for us.” He noted that the console’s Premium Rack is also an excellent addition to Yamaha consoles. “The pre-amps sound great on their own, but to add premium EQs and compressors really pushes the sound quality over the top. Really great stuff… I hate to sound silly, but most things about the CL make my life easier at FOH.”

A mixing engineer for some 22 years beginning in high school, Pendleton graduated from the College of William & Mary in 2000 where he really started to dig into to his professional sound career. Since then, he’s been running clubs and music venues as well as touring with various artists, most recently GRAMMY™ award winners The Robert Glasper Experiment, Yassin Bey (a.k.a. Mos Def), and Erykah Badu.


Cantu, who has been mixing since 1997, said he has also used most digital consoles in the Yamaha family. “Like a lot of live sound engineers out there, I had my training on the job with the CL and figuring things out in the old “trial by fire” way of learning on the fly. And, one great part about the Yamaha website is the video tutorials. I watched all of the videos on the CL Series Consoles once I knew I was going out on tour with one.”

“For my life in monitor world, Cantu said, there are many features that make my life easier. From the time I save with the ease of setup of the console, to having the processing power to run the 46 channels we were using, six stereo in-ear mixes and four powered mixes. I tend to use a lot of dynamics to keep things consistent, but still keeping the live feel of each instrument without compromising the dynamics of the sound. I was also using five stereo effects to round it all out.”
Cantu happily notes how great it is to have classic Comp’s and EQ’s that ‘engineers have been drooling over’ at the touch of the screen. “How often have we had access to any two of these at one time let alone having arguably some of the best sounding dynamic devices sought after waiting to be used right in the rack?”

Premiere Southern California Live Music Venue Steps it Up with VARIA

Long Beach, CA – December 2013…The Gaslamp is one of Southern California’s best-known night spots, with a rich history of great entertainment and an impressively eclectic roster. On any given night, the club’s stage plays host to artists ranging from hard rock and metal to punk, acoustic, and even contemporary classical performances, as well as comedy, DJs, tribute acts, karaoke, and even televised sporting events.

The Gaslamp offers up a full kitchen, with private booths and tables as well as a bar and dance floor, making it a great place for dinner, drinks, and a night out. But as owner Mike Newfeld explains, the club’s acoustics have long been a struggle.

“It’s a very boomy room,” says Newfeld. “It’s got high ceilings, concrete floors, and just not very good sound dispersion — a lot of pockets that are dead space or too loud. The challenge has been to find a system that would deliver consistent coverage and sound good, no matter where you are in the room.”

Engineer Tony Purvis agrees. “It was really, really hard to get a good mix throughout the whole club — to achieve that ‘comfortable loud,’ where everyone can enjoy themselves, enjoy the music and the performance but still be able to hold a conversation.”

The Gaslamp recently upgraded their sound system, installing the new VARIA modular point source line array system from Renkus-Heinz. As Purvis observes, the VARIA system has completely changed the equation for the club.

“The experience that I’ve had with the new VARIA system has been just amazing,” Purvis remarks. “The design of the system has enabled complete coverage. This system makes my life easier.”

“We couldn’t be happier with the new VARIA system,” adds Newfeld. “Our customer base noticed immediately. It’s loud, clear, and clean, without blowing people away. Thanks to the new VARIA system, we are now known as the premiere live music venue in Southern California.”

Sound Company Adds Yamaha CL5 to Arsenal

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Event Pro, Inc. of Hastings, MN has recently upgraded its digital console arsenal with a new Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console and Rio3224-D and 1608-D input/output boxes. The purchase was facilitated by Metro Sound and Lighting, St. Paul, MN. Event Pro supports regional and national productions, and is a technical services provider for touring, corporate, civic, and educational events. The company began 14 years ago, however, owner Neal Wallace started his career prior to that in the 1980s as a touring engineer. Although the basic focus for Event Pro was (and still is) providing state-of-the-art audio services, the company also provides full lighting, video, and staging services.

“Our focus is on pre-production planning and heavy client involvement in the execution of an event or concert,” states Wallace. “We also provide high school theatre sound instruction and support for school events that are often very complex in nature, some with up to 30 wireless systems, 48 audio channels, and multiple scenes programed on the consoles. With our training and the use of Yamaha digital consoles, students are able to handle 100% of an event’s audio operation.

Wallace said the new Yamaha CL5 will be used for many Event Pro productions, and Yamaha console familiarity was key to its purchase. “It was a logical step for all technicians familiar with Yamaha consoles, says Wallace. We have been avid fans of Yamaha digital consoles, but the decision also came on advice from our techs along with other production company owners, as a great usable product to own, with the expectation of providing our customers a solid new platform for superb sound.”

Wallace added that another reason for the purchase of the Yamaha CL5 is its digital snake system and the ability to “drag” only pencil thin Cat5 cables across ballroom ceilings and concert grounds instead of the heavy split analog snake systems they currently use. “The technical aspects of the Rio units and Yamaha’s attention to digital pre amp issues for split monitor dual-console systems was also was a factor,” Wallace notes.

Early spring projects for Event Pro, Inc. consist mainly of corporate and non-profit event use, while the summer season focuses on outdoor college events and many festivals where the CL5 will be particularly useful, along with theater, tour rentals, and installed sound business. “Our audio department takes much pride in supplying the ultimate in production requirements for our clients.”
