NEW HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH BELIEVES IN ASHLY

New_Hope_Baptist_InteriorGRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN – NOVEMBER 2014: Founded in 1934 by a small collection of the faithful who opened up their living rooms every Sunday in the bustling Michigan town of Grand Rapids, New Hope Baptist Church has grown to a congregation of over 800 active members. To better accommodate its members, the church recently underwent a comprehensive renovation of its 750-seat sanctuary and associated overflow and ancillary use rooms. A new sound system centered on Ashly Audio processing, amplification, and user control is a centerpiece of the project and gives New Hope congregants exceptional intelligibility for spoken word, along with musical transcendence for the New Hope band and praise choir. Critically, the Ashly gear came in at a price point that allowed the church to meet its needs reliably, without breaking the project’s budget. Pro Audio Inc., of nearby Grandville, Michigan designed and installed the system for New Hope Baptist Church.

“The performance of Ashly gear is top-notch and yet its cost is very reasonable,” said Ken Reinecke, owner of Pro Audio Inc. “That’s a rare combination. In terms of sound quality, Ashly’s processing and amplification is transparent. What goes in is what comes out, plus whatever dynamics or equalization I’ve dialed in. And the gear can run at 96kHz for super critical situations. Programming Ashly’s Protea DSP platform is straightforward. I just drag and drop whatever processing I need, and drag appropriate inputs to appropriate outputs. Linking groups is also handy. Ashly gear is also tremendously reliable – it basically never breaks or fails.” Because space at New Hope Baptist Church was at a premium, it also helped that Reinecke could fit all of the system’s processing and amplification in just six rack spaces.

A new Soundcraft Si Performer 3 console serves as the user interface in the sanctuary itself. From there, an Ashly ne8800 8×8 Network DSP Protea™ Processor handles all of the loudspeaker settings for the sanctuary’s new JBL VRX928LA eight-inch, two-way line array system with JBL 915S subs. The stereo line array is powered by a single Ashly nXe 3.04 network four-channel amplifier rated at 3,000W per channel, providing ample power to the main sanctuary system. Additionally, output from the console feeds an Ashly Pema 8250 combination 8×8 Matrix Protea processor and eight-channel 250-Watt amplifier. The Pema 8250 takes additional inputs, such as wall jacks for microphones or music players that are located in the narthex and other out rooms. The versatile eight-channel Pema 8250 handles all of the audio routing, signal processing, and amplification for New Hope Baptist’s two nurseries, its nursing room, the bathrooms, and the narthex.

Four Ashly WR-5 programmable wall-mounted remote controls located strategically around the out rooms provide customized, intuitive control of those inputs, as well as of the sound from the sanctuary. “The nice thing about that arrangement is that folks can make changes in all those rooms without bothering the sound tech,” said Reinecke. “While the main system is controlled entirely from the Soundcraft console, the church staff can use the mic inputs and the Ashly WR-5 remote controls to play music or have a standalone PA for meetings and small events in those out rooms.”

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 40-year old company is headquartered in Webster, New York U.S.A.

Evolutionary Yamaha PM10 Launched Today

Yamaha RIVAGE PM10

Buena Park, Calif.—In a worldwide announcement made at Inter BEE today, Yamaha Corporation Japan has launched the RIVAGE PM10 Digital Mixing Console, an enormous, evolutionary step for Yamaha PM Series Digital Live Sound Consoles. More than ten years have passed since the Yamaha PM1D and PM5D defined the direction for the digital console market. The new flagship RIVAGE PM10 significantly increases the quality and versatility necessary in a live sound environment, and inherits features from the renowned PM Series Consoles. Evolved features and performance define yet another milestone for Yamaha sound reinforcement consoles. The PM10 system is comprised of the CS-R10 control surface, DSP-R10 DSP engine, RPio622 I/O rack, three types of RY cards, and two types of HY cards provide the flexibility to configure and ideally match the scale and functional requirements of any application.

“Our new flagship RIVAGE PM10 system is the result of more than 40 years of PM Series history and reinforces our passion to provide industry-leading commercial audio products,” states Laurence Italia, Vice President/General Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “RIVAGE PM10 will ignite the market for a new era of extraordinary sound, operation, and reliability. Needless to say, RIVAGE PM10 would not be possible without the dedication of the Yamaha Japan R&D team as well as feedback from our customers.”

Under the fundamental philosophy of Yamaha live sound consoles, Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers have been newly-developed, as has the analog section both in terms of components and overall design, achieving an extraordinarily pure, natural sound. Impeccable models of the Rupert Neve Designs (RND) transformer circuitry and acclaimed SILK processing have been created utilizing Yamaha’s VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology. The SILK processing feature even includes selectable “RED” and “BLUE” characteristics, and a continuously variable “TEXTURE” knob that facilitate sonic shaping right at the input stage, adding musical sparkle or power as required. Josh Thomas, general manager of Rupert Neve Designs, had this to say about the collaboration: “We have done a number of listening sessions to compare our hardware to the transformer and Silk Texture emulations that Dr. K of Yamaha Japan and the development team achieved. Rupert and I are both very impressed by how closely the emulations get to the original analog designs. We hope that you all enjoy the rich Rupert Neve sound.”

The channel EQ and dynamics have been significantly upgraded with three newly developed algorithms plus the classic Yamaha “Legacy” algorithm. The new “Precise” algorithm includes Q parameters on the low and high shelving filters that allow filter overshoot to be flexibly controlled for added musical impact. An “Aggressive” algorithm has been designed for the most musical response, and the “Smooth” algorithm offers smooth, natural control while retaining the fundamental character of the source. Two Dynamics stages are provided, each functioning as a gate, compressor, ducker, or de-esser as required. Two compressor types are included: “Legacy Comp” features standard Yamaha digital console compressor characteristics, and “Comp260,” a VCM model of a popular analog comp/limiter from the mid-70s.

A total of 45 plug-ins are available for creative processing, with substantially increased processing power. New and noteworthy are plug-ins created in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs, TC Electronic, and Eventide.Collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs has resulted in the “Rupert EQ 773,” “Rupert Comp 754,” “Rupert EQ 810,” and “Rupert Comp 830,” all VCM models of Neve designed outboard devices from the 70s and 80s. All four models deliver the gloriously musical vintage outboard sound still favored by many discerning engineers. The alliance with TC Electronic has resulted in the inclusion of two new reverb plug-ins: the “VSS4HD” room simulation reverb that offers a multitude of reflection settings with musical-sounding reverb processing capabilities, and the “NON LIN2” plug-in that can function as an envelope-filtered gate reverb without requiring a trigger.

“I wish to congratulate Yamaha with raising the bar for live console design significantly,” states Thomas Lund, CTO of TC Electronic. By directly integrating the world’s finest EQ, dynamics and reverbs, this mixing system is truly outstanding. Therefore, a big congratulations to the users also.”

Cooperation with Eventide has produced the “H3000-LIVE” harmonizer, an accurate reproduction of the H3000 Ultra Harmonizer algorithm with an interface streamlined for live sound use. “The marriage of classic Eventide effects with the state-of-the-art Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 mixing system is a match made in heaven,” adds Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing.

Console operation has been given the utmost attention with the Yamaha-familiar Selected Channel section implemented in full, allowing all parameters of the selected channel to be directly and intuitively controlled. There are also two large LCD touch screens that provide logical continuity with the faders, offering the same operability as the highly regarded Centralogic™ interface in 12-channel groups. In addition to this dual interface hybrid operation style, horseshoe-ring encoder position indicators, refined panel layout, and several other details contribute to significantly improved overall operability.

New features extend the usefulness of the scene memory: “Isolate” enables the engineer to specify entire channel modules including EQ and dynamics libraries, etc., that will be protected from recall operations without altering the Recall Safe settings; significant for situations where scene memory is heavily used. The Overlay Filter can be “overlaid” on a current mix to apply temporary offsets to fader and mix/matrix send levels independently from Scene Recall – valuable in situations that require sudden changes and the ability to easily revert to the original settings.

The CS-R10 control surface and DSP-R10 DSP engine are connected via a dedicated CAT5e ring “Console Network.” The DSP engine connects to the RPio622 I/O racks via the newly developed TWINLANe ring network using multi-mode optical fiber. The fact that both networks use simple ring connections facilitates redundancy and the highest possible reliability. TWINLANe is an original Yamaha protocol that can handle up to 400 96kHz audio channels over distances of up to 300 meters with low latency and redundancy for high reliability. Up to two DSP-R10 DSP engines and eight RPio622 I/O racks can be connected in a single ring.

Connection to a computer for multi-track recording, connectivity to the NUAGE Advanced Production System, Yamaha CL and QL Series Consoles, as well as other external equipment is possible via a Dante network. Dante, designed for simple setup with an extremely wide range of professional audio devices, works ideally with TWINLANe to create an exceptionally flexible, reliable system overall.

RIVAGE PM10 has an expected delivery during 2015.

ASHLY AUDIO MULTI-CHANNEL 25-VOLT AMPLIFIERS PROVIDE A COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO A 70-VOLT SYSTEM WITH CONDUIT AT DENISON HIGH SCHOOL

Denison_High_SchoolDENISON, TEXAS: Denison High School in Denison, Texas recently completed a new 300,000 square-foot building to accommodate its 1,250-plus students. Although packed with the latest in academic technology and the sort of architectural features that both provide comfort and encourage learning, the new building faced cost overruns and a budgeting challenge that required creative thinking on the part of its subcontractors. Among them was a plan put forward by local A/V integrator Batts Audio, Video & Lighting to jettison a 70-volt announcement/bell system (and all the expensive conduit it would require!) for a distributed amplifier system running a 25-volt announcement/bell system. Based around eight 8-channel Ashly Audio ne8250.25pe Network Amplifiers with built-in Protea™ DSP processing, Batts AV&L gave Denison a reliable, high-quality system for a fraction of the cost of the proposed 70-volt system.

“The issue was that the new school was coming in way over budget,” explained Jeremy Pilcher, vice president of operations at Batts AVL. “It was recommended to them by the construction manager at risk, as well as by a third-party construction manager, that many items be brought back under the umbrella of the district’s responsibility, such as classroom projectors, cafeteria/gym/video room projectors, auditorium technology, and the announcement system. We have an established relationship with the district, and we became responsible for all of it.”

The most vexing problem was the announcement/bell system, which called for a 70-volt system run through conduit throughout the building. “We ran the costs/benefits on using 25-volt amps distributed throughout the building that could power loudspeakers without necessitating conduit,” Pilcher said. “Sure, we needed more amps, but even after accounting for that, the cost savings was substantial. Ashly Audio is the industry leader in multi-channel 25-volt amplifiers. They are extremely cost-effective, especially with optional on-board processing, and are well-known for their reliability.”

The system begins with a dedicated paging system with analog outputs to trigger different zones. Those triggers and the voice signal travel to the eight Ashly ne8250.25pe amplifiers, which are placed strategically throughout the school. Each amplifier’s eight channels powers delivers 250 watts output to multiple zones of 25-volt Quam-Nichols loudspeakers, and each separate channel can constitute a separate selectable paging zone. The Ashly ne8250.25pe amplifiers also provide modest equalization, delay and limiting using the optional on-board Ashly Protea processing. “All together, using Ashly’s 25-volt amplifiers provided a functionally and cost-effective solution,” said Pilcher.

Expanded Riedel Artist Intercom System Enables Robust VOIP Communications for Scottish Referendum Broadcast

Artist System at Pacific Quay Broadcast Center Augmented to Facilitate Cost-Effective Communications Among OB Sites Across the United Kingdom

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Nov. 13, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that BBC Scotland used a Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system along with the broadcaster’s most extensive IP deployment to date to support communications for its Scottish Referendum broadcast. By augmenting and expanding the building-wide Riedel system used for day-to-day business at its Pacific Quay facilities in Glasgow, the broadcaster was able to establish effective VOIP communications among outside broadcast venues across the United Kingdom.

The Riedel Artist deployment allowed BBC Scotland to employ VOIP panels from London to Shetland, all connected to its Glasgow facilities, in a versatile alternative to using ISDN lines. A preassembled and pretested integrated kit provided straightforward plug-and-play operation at each OB site. This reduced the time and complexity of on-site set up and configuration. This approach provided much greater functionality at each OB location, where the dual-channel panel made it easy for users to speak to key technical staff back at Pacific Quay.

The Artist system included 32 Riedel Artist panels for VOIP communications to OB locations in Scotland and another eight connecting a remote switching hub in London; a pair of four-wires converted to IP for a VOIP connection to an OB at Holyrood, home to the Scottish Parliament; nine commentator panels for radio reports; and two virtual panels for communications with the IT support team. With support from Riedel engineers, the BBC was able to integrate extra panels and cards and perform the necessary programming to increase the capacity and functionality of the Pacific Quay Artist system without disrupting its ongoing broadcast operations. The fully integrated kits used at each OB site featured a modem, router, Riedel Connect IPx audio-over-IP interface, desktop panel, headset, and input and output leads, all packaged in a flight case optimized for field deployment.

“The BBC has relied on our Artist system for daily operations for quite some time now, and we worked closely with the Pacific Quay IT and technology team to ensure a smooth extension of this system to accommodate comprehensive coverage of the Scottish Referendum,” said Paul Rivens, U.K. general manager at Riedel. “The resulting communications system supported a rich and dynamic broadcast program for this historic event.”
