BUENA PARK, Calif. —Alfred “AL-Tee? Williams has worked as a front of house and monitor engineer with artists such as Kool and the Gang, The SOS Band, Tank, Rachelle Farrell, Angie Stone, Fantasia, and currently with R&B artist Jay Sean. His choice in mixing boards then, and now, is the Yamaha PM5D. Williams said the console’s dynamic performance helps the artist keep the rhythm pumping on the stage.

“In today’s world, digital consoles are the ‘whatz, how and now’ and used at every venue around the world, states “AL-Tee?. The Yamaha PM5D is the board that I can count on seeing no matter where I travel.

JESSUP, MARYLAND – MAY 2011: Proof that analog audio is a powerful force in the digital age, the Foo Fighters’ recent analog effort, Wasting Light, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart last month. The album, which moved more than 235,000 copies in its first week, was recorded and mixed completely on a 32-channel API 1608 console in frontman Dave Grohl’s untreated garage and spare room. Although many consoles would have fit Grohl’s spacing and input requirements, the API 1608 and its sixteen-channel expander stood out as the perfect mix of uncompromising professionalism, flexible topology and functional size.

“The API sound is great for rock,” said Wasting Light producer Butch Vig. “It’s not subtle and it’s not soft. When you turn the gain up on an EQ, you can really hear it. It’s musical. We drove the 1608 more

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Palm Valley Church in Mission, Texas recently hired Mankin Media Systems (MMS) of Franklin, Tennessee to design/build a new facility to house their growing congregation. The existing 600-seat auditorium previously thought to be large enough was now bursting at the seams so a new 2,500-seat auditorium was erected.

MMS worked with architects that were not familiar with the type of facility the church wanted, and also worked closely with local engineers and contractors to ensure the building was built to the specifications and standards set by Palm Valley Church. The timeline was a bit of a challenge in order to achieve the desired results, with the added challenge of making sure that structural steel, power, and acoustics were all positioned precisely so that the new systems would work as designed.

Mankin Media Systems Projects Director, Stephen Roberts, said, “The church was exploding in attendance and were more
