PNTA Joins Yamaha Dealer Network

BUENA PARK, Calif.—PNTA opened its doors in1975 as a local Seattle-area supplier of theatrical equipment and consumables. Since that time, PNTA has expanded staff and capabilities to provide a wealth of services for customers nationally. Employee-owned since 2008, the Company has increased its services to include audio, video, and lighting. As part of its recent growth, PNTA has joined the Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. dealer network adding the new Yamaha QL Digital Audio Console to their ever-growing Yamaha arsenal.

With an expert technical services staff, PNTA installs and repairs equipment and supports both non-profit and private customers through their Event Services Department providing production requirements for events of all sizes. Masters at their craft, the Event Services staff enriches the company with backgrounds in systems design, lighting design, sound design, set design, stage management, equipment repair, event design and production, and graphic arts and design.
PNTA is located in a 20,000 square-foot facility near downtown Seattle. The facility notably includes a sizeable brick and mortar retail store supporting its dealer activity for leading entertainment and live production manufacturers, now including Yamaha Commercial Audio products. The company has an active walk-in customer business seeking to buy lighting, audio, video, staging and special effects, drapery and decorative fabrics, as well as an extensive assortment of consumables.

“We did an exhaustive internal review of what audio vendor we needed to strategically add to best accelerate our market progress in growing our overall audio business, states Dave Vaught, Event Services Production Manager at PNTA. We were particularly interested in broadening our offering in professional products appealing to our client base. We focused those efforts initially in audio control and sound reproduction as we needed more tools for sale, rental, and event services support. With the substantial market position and reputation of Yamaha and its many new and highly regarded products recently introduced, the answer became clear. We are happy to have become a Yamaha dealer and integrator of Yamaha’s Commercial Audio Systems products.”

Vaught said that PNTA wanted to add consoles that they expected to see high rental demand from for both existing customers and customers travelling into the state of Washington. “With the announcement of the QL Series, we found a very forward-thinking technological capability in a footprint that was easily transportable while being exceedingly powerful. The expandability of the QL Series clinched our choice and buying depth at key levels. Based on our client history, every need we could think of could be answered by some or all of the features of Yamaha QL desks. We were impressed with a number of the features, including onboard recording, signal and effect processing, auto-mixing, and iPad integration.” For rentals and event services, PNTA also invested in a speaker line extension, moving into the Yamaha DXR and DXS Speaker Series.

“While our company size has grown along with the expanded services we now offer, PNTA retains what we started with when we first opened our doors—a dedication to meeting the needs of our valued customers and finding creative solutions to tough problems,” states Richard Carlson, President. “By adding Yamaha products to our product line, we can now offer the ultimate in quality and reliability to our audio customers. Yamaha consoles are specified on many riders and fill rental needs as well as being versatile for our production needs.”

SSL Live Joins the 2014 World of Music, Arts and Dance (WOMAD) Festival

“The flexibility of surface offered by the SSL is unparalleled”

MALMESBURY, ENGLAND, U.K. – Celebrating its 34th year, World of Music, Arts and Dance (WOMAD) is an annual eclectic world-music festival of “artists whom we might not get to hear anywhere else” and the largest and most prestigious event of its kind. As with WOMADs of the past, Britannia Row Productions Ltd. once again provided sound services for the festival. But this year had a new team member – SSL Live consoles at FOH for two stages: the main Open Air Stage and at WOMAD’s new Society of Sound marquee.

Having worked as front of house and system engineer in WOMAD’s Siam Tent last year, New Zealander Johnny Keirle returned to mix FOH at the Open Air Stage. An SSL Live console was used by Keirle to mix acts travelling without a FOH engineer. “The SSL Live provides an intuitive, logical workflow and is very easy to use in a festival situation,” he says. “Despite the time restrictions and last minute changes that can prove difficult and stressful at a festival, the console proved to be perfect for our setup.”

The collection of acts that Keirle mixed included the eight-piece traditional Cuban ensemble Septeto Santiagero, Italian folk traditionalist Anna Cinzia Cillani and her Macuran Orchestra and Ethiopian jazz master Mulatu Astatke, who performed just before founding WOMAD headliner and Senegalese icon Yousou N’Dour. Over on the Society of Sound stage Live was coupled with the unique Bowers & Wilkins ‘Sound System’ to deliver pristine high fidelity audio to a discerning audience who enjoyed an impressively diverse collection of experimental artists including: Radiophonic Workshop, Beardyman, 9Bach, Justin Adams and Iarla Ó Lionárd.

For Keirle, the most appealing feature of Live was the customisability of the surface. “On analogue consoles, you always have everything in front of you at all times,” he says. “Obviously, with digital consoles, this is not the case. So, it’s essential to have channels where they’re needed. The flexibility of the control surface offered by the SSL is unparalleled.”

Keirle also mentions the secondary screen on the Channel Control Tile and its Focus Fader below, which together form the right-hand ‘Focus Channel.’ “The combination of direct-access buttons, push-button rotary encoders and touch screen offer full control across all channel processing,” he continues. “I could work on channel processing while simultaneously using the primary screen for other functions.”

Many engineers begin by mainly using Live’s large, central multi-touch screen but like Keirle quickly started to see the benefits of its Channel Control Tile. “As I familiarised myself with the console’s layout and workflow, I found I preferred to use the secondary, smaller screen with its direct access buttons and associated rotary encoders,” he adds. “The Focus Channel offers quicker access to various channel functions and has the added benefit of physical knobs, which I find preferable to the touch screen or a fader flip for fine-tuning and tweaking.”

With a new digital console it can be a challenge to understand its workflow and find the best method of operation but not so for Keirle with Live. “For me, the simple comfort of being able to have my faders laid out exactly as I wanted, in conjunction with full control over channel processing on the second screen, made it easy to quickly get underway,” Keirle says. “This meant I could spend more time working on my mixes, rather than learning how to operate the console. The ability to easily change the console’s configuration is fantastic. Changing inputs or outputs from mono to stereo, or changing auxiliaries from pre- to post-fader is fast and easy, making the creation of suitable mix templates effortless.”

It wasn’t long before Keirle was comfortable pushing the limits of the console. “I began to get more experimental with my show file structuring and layout,” he remarks. “I would change the configuration; make use of multiple stems as subgroups for parallel compression; use various effects units inserted on channels, stems and auxiliaries; run inputs into multiple channels for dedicated effected channels and so on.”

Keirle also found the customisable fader banks and layers very useful for WOMAD’s festival situation. “I found that I could easily reorder channels to work in our festival-patch scenario,” he adds. “So, I adopted a layout that worked well for the bands I was mixing.”

SSL Live’s surface provides three 12-fader banks, or Fader Tiles, each with multiple layers that can be customised with any combination of inputs, outputs, stems, groups, auxiliaries or VCAs. He dedicated the lower, Left Fader Tile to band and instrument inputs and stems on various banks. The Central Fader Tile was used for vocal inputs and dedicated FX send fader and the Upper Fader Tile was used for auxiliary masters and VCA faders.

The loudspeaker system at the Open Air Stage consisted of one dozen L-Acoustics K1s per side, supplemented with 16 SB28 subs and a dozen KARA front-fills. “Using the SSL with the K1 system made for an extremely effortless mix. I never struggled to get anything sounding how I wanted,” Keirle says. “I found SSL Live’s internal effects very easy to dial in and never had any issues with quality of effects sound, which I’ve commonly found to be a weak point in other touring consoles.”

RapcoHorizon Joins the “Soundtrack of Summer Tour” with Foreigner, Styx and Don Felder

Engineers for All Three Acts Rely on Custom RoadHog and SilverHog Cables and Connectors for Legendary U.S. Concert Series

JACKSON, MO, AUGUST 13, 2014 – RapcoHorizon, an RHC Holdings brand and leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, has once again hit the road for another legendary tour. Custom runs of the company’s RoadHog and SilverHog touring cables are serving a variety of needs for the “Soundtrack of Summer Tour,” featuring Foreigner, Styx and special guest Don Felder of the Eagles.

As the group began to prepare for this highly anticipated tour, Lorenzo Banda, monitor engineer for Foreigner and a long-time RapcoHorizon fan, recommended the cables to the Styx and Felder audio teams. Though Foreigner and Styx are co-headliners and Felder is the opening act, each band required its own unique cabling requirements. For Foreigner and Felder, they exclusively are relying on RapcoHorizon – from instruments to speakers – all arranged in custom runs, while the engineers for Styx created their own runs using several of the company’s cables and connectors.

“We started using RapcoHorizon a while back, when the SilverHog cables first came out, and have used them for every performance since,” says Banda. “When the time came for us to plan the Soundtrack of Summer Tour, I knew the cables would be a perfect fit for Styx and Don Felder. When we met up for a gig at Fox News’ Fox & Friends in New York to promote the tour, I introduced the guys to some of their products.”

The stage design for this tour is complex since each group has its own setup, including lasers and special effects for Foreigner, large video walls for Styx and Felder opening each show by descending onto the arena. “Don is completely on board with the cables,” says Banda. “His engineers love it. Their whole stage setup is now using RapcoHorizon, and I think his studio is even starting to fill out with the cables as well. As for Styx, they’re also really stoked about the quality and sound of the cables.”

All RapcoHorizon cables are designed for the working musician. The custom instrument and speaker cables are road-ready and tour tough, employing the most rugged constructions without sacrificing sound quality. The SilverHog cables offer the bands the same durability for which RapcoHorizon is known, but with an even more enhanced sound range.

“I noticed the high-end definition and fidelity on these cables, as it’s much more pristine than others I have heard,” says Banda. “I use a lot of RapcoHorizon’s twisted pair cables, which have great resistance and a high-quality sound. I don’t know all the technical nuances that go into making the cables, but I can definitely hear the difference.”

By the time the tour concludes this September, the RapcoHorizon cables will have made more than 50 stops across the country. “All of the cables have been really slamming and durable,” adds Banda. “We have backups and redundancies, just in case, but we haven’t needed to use them. Sound is our first priority and to have that kind of quality product behind us is one less thing that we have to worry about.”

Banda credits RHC Holdings and RapcoHorizon as being among the best audio companies in the industry with which to work. “Everyone at RapcoHorizon bent over backwards to make sure all of the bands received what they needed in a timely manner,” he says. “They always make us feel like we’re their number one priority and take care of us immediately. They care about us 100 percent whole-heartedly. We’ve worked with other cable companies and you can’t get that level of customer service with anyone else; it really makes a difference.”

RHC Holdings, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications interfacing products. Comprising RapcoHorizon, Momentum, Pro Co, Pro Co Data, RAT, RoadHog and StageMASTER, each RHC Holdings brand has developed a reputation in many industries for reliability, and superior sound performance. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, the company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance. RHC Holdings also has a state-of-the-art Custom Shop to modify existing products or build new devices to meet any need.
