LONDON — SFL Group has carried out the first UK install of the L-ACOUSTICS KARAi modular WST line source system for permanent installation at Jesus House, a 2,000-capacity church in North London owned by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

As an installation product it looks really neat; I’m very pleased with it and so is the customer, it sounds absolutely phenomenal. more

NEW YORK, New York – Continuing to apply its advanced design and innovative feature set to creating solutions for broadcast audio, HARMAN’s Studer Vista 8 Digital Live Production Console now in use for “The Martha Stewart Show” on the Hallmark Network provides Jorge Silva, the program’s Head Audio Engineer, with the tools that he needs to keep the show’s sound at the cutting edge.

Hackenbacker Sends The Voice of The X Factor ‘Packing’.

Soho audio facility Hackenbacker has been helping Peter Dickson, one of the UK’s most famous voices, to capture his trademark voice-over style while he is ‘on the road’.

With a voice that is so immediately recognisable, Peter is the first person TV producers and big name stars turn to when they need a voice that truly delivers. His dulcet tones are now well and truly cemented in the public conscience thanks to his work on Award-winning TV shows and stadium events like The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Family Fortunes and The Paul O’Grady Show.

One drawback of being so busy is the amount of time Peter spends traveling, which means having to record voice-overs ‘on the hoof’.

“I have always been pretty successful at delivering a good vocal sound when on the road,? he explains. “It’s a bit of a black art. I have recorded more

Martin Audio OmniLine Solves Acoustical Problems For Third Presbyterian Church

Rochester, NY––Located near the prestigious Eastman School of Music, Rochester’s Third Presbyterian is a traditional church in the Gothic style which recently underwent a 10-month, $5.4 million renovation.

The AV Solutions team of Mickey Ames and Lead Tech Bryan Dowd, along with Consultant Tom Kostusiak who designed the sound system and acoustician Robert F. Mahoney, did the installation that included a completely upgraded sanctuary and new sound systems.

Challenges for the project included a modest budget, plus the existing acoustics that were very dry and lacked audible delay because of the square shape of the room and thickly carpeted floors. Plus the church doesn’t have a full time AV staff member, so the system had to run in unattended mix mode most of the time.

In addition, Rochester’s Director of Music Peter duBois, who was involved in the install, wanted the option of running attended services with more
