JUPITER GAINS CONTROL OF PARIS’ GARE DE L’EST

gare_de_lest_paris.JPG

PARIS, FRANCE – JUNE 2011: The Gare de l’Est is a train station that connects Paris to Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and other points abroad via high-speed rail, as well as serving as a hub for the Paris Metro. Built in 1849 and with significant additions, Gare de l’Est is one of the oldest and one of the largest train stations in Paris. But despite its age and historical significance (it was from Gare de l’Est that legions of French troops went to the Western fronts of both World Wars), the train station melds old and new elements to form an aesthetic that is strikingly contemporary. Recently, SNCF (France’s railway company) hired United Kingdom- and France-based Sound Directions to update its ticket sales area with sound reinforcement to deliver information and revenue-generating advertisements to waiting customers. Sound Directions relied on a Symetrix Jupiter more

ASPEN, COLORADO – JUNE 2011: For ski bums, well-heeled tycoons, and eccentric celebrities alike, Aspen, Colorado represents the perfect alignment of geology and the human passion for snow, speed, and splendor. Off the slopes, the idyllic town caters to the recreational proclivities of its unique visitors, for whom high-class food and drink are a natural part of the good life. Therefore, when the upscale Hotel Jerome and the Aspen-posh restaurant Silver Queen approached Colorado-based A/V designer and integrator Halcyon Productions with woes of ailing and difficult-to-control sound systems, co-owner Heath Manning prescribed Ashly Audio’s ne24.24M modular DSP together with the incredibly easy-to-use WR-5 wall mount remote control. The cost-effective units sound great and provide an appropriately simple level of control for the often harried staff of both establishments.

“User control is a critical issue in the commercial atmosphere of a banquet hall, restaurant, or bar, where the staff are more

ENGINEER SAM LAKEMAN AND IRISH FOLK SINGER CARA DILLON JOIN THE RANKS OF METRIC HALO ULN-8 USERS

cara_dillon.JPG

FROME, UNITED KINGDOM – JUNE 2011: For anyone who lives to make music and pines for a soulmate, it would be hard not to envy Irish folk vocalist Cara Dillon and her husband Sam Lakeman. The two met in the band Equation and quickly left to walk – as seen in hindsight – a sure and steady path to artistic, commercial, and familial success. Winning dozens of awards and countless accolades, Dillon’s otherworldly voice takes the spotlight, and the duo have created and produced four solid albums on Rough Trade Records and, now, their own Charcoal Records. Lakeman also serves as the recording engineer in their second floor (this fact will become important) home studio. Tired of cobbling together equipment and re-jiggering routing on menu-heavy digital boxes, Lakeman purchased the powerful Metric Halo ULN-8 combination mic pre, converter and DSP. But from the time he would receive it to the more

DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS CONVERT POSTAL SORTING FACILITY INTO A SATELLITE SANCTUARY FOR CORNERSTONE CHURCH

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JUNE 2011: What started as a meeting of fifty-five people in the Wharton living room in 1983 grew to become Cornerstone Church, one of the landmark mega-churches of the South. Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Cornerstone recently outgrew its 3,200-seat sanctuary, prompting the church to consider building a satellite facility. Because a large contingent of congregants were making a two-hour round-trip drive from Bowling Green, Kentucky, it made sense to situate a satellite sanctuary there. The church purchased an old U.S. Postal Service sorting facility and converted it to a sanctuary where live elements, including a band, would meld with a videotaped sermon from the pastor in Nashville. Because the music forms such an integral component of the experience and because the new room was built with no consideration for acoustics, Nashville’s Pro Audio Solutions prescribed and installed a sound system centered on Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers, which more
