Starlight on Powering Back-to-Back Heavy Metal Festivals: “Rigging & Tuning Meyer Sound LEO is That Fast”

Supporting heavy metal festivals STHLM Fields and Sonisphere not only took tremendous sonic power, but also an intelligently designed loudspeaker rigging system built for mission-critical circumstances. For the festivals’ headliners Metallica, Slayer, and Mastodon, Starlight built a massive Meyer Sound LEO™ linear large-scale sound reinforcement system with close to 200 loudspeakers. Within 24 hours, the system was flown and tuned for action for the two productions located 500 km from each other.

Both produced by Live Nation, the STHLM Fields welcomed a sold-out crowd of 50,000 in Stockholm’s vast Gardet Royal Park, while Sonisphere drew 40,000 metal fans to Oslo’s Valle Hovin stadium.

“Although the shows were two days apart, Metallica preferred to have the system ready for a 6:00 pm check in Oslo the day after the first show,” says Fredrik Arwidson, systems engineer for Starlight. “We managed to deliver on the band’s demands with only seven people on the audio crew; rigging and tuning LEO is that fast.”

The main LEO system comprised dual main hangs of 16 LEO-M line array loudspeakers with two MICA® line array loudspeakers for down fill. Low end was provided by 42 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements in dual flown arrays of 12 each and dual end-fire arrays stacked in rows of three by three, in addition to six M3D-Sub directional subwoofers for center coverage. Main stage out hangs each used 14 MILO® line array loudspeakers, with six MICA loudspeakers for front fill. Four delay systems deployed a total of 24 MILO and 32 LEO-M loudspeakers and 24 flown M3D subwoofers.

System drive and optimization was provided by a Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 AES and eight Galileo Callisto array processors.

“The sound quality was great,” says Christian Schøyen of Live Nation Norway. “The LEO system filled the entire stadium with plenty of volume, and it looked good, too.”

Arwidson adds: “Every time we set up LEO, I’m surprised by how effortlessly it delivers extremely high output with no power compression. It seems that the headroom never ends. The audience was excited all the way to the back.”

In addition to the main LEO system, the Stockholm site featured a dual-stage setup using a Meyer Sound system also provided by Starlight. It included 54 M3D line array loudspeakers, 42 700-HP subwoofers, eight JM-1P arrayable loudspeakers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 AES and two Galileo 616 processors.

Meyer Sound JM-1P & 1100-LFC Drive High-Energy Worship at The Crossing Church in Las Vegas

To attract a younger, media-savvy demographic, The Crossing Christian Church has installed a concert-grade Meyer Sound system. The design features the JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker and the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element, Meyer Sound’s most powerful loudspeaker for 30 Hz to 85 Hz frequency range.

“It’s great to finally have a system with enough headroom so that we can push it hard when needed, and have it respond with a smooth increase in gain, without distorting or changing the tonality,” says Bob Meyers, principal audio engineer at The Crossing.

For uniform coverage of the wide, 1,800-seat room, the system relies on four main clusters of JM-1P loudspeakers, with four in each end cluster and five in each of the two center clusters. One UPA-1P loudspeaker provides down-fill under each cluster, while six UPJunior™ VariO™ loudspeakers supply front fill. Four 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements are flown in an end-fired array over the stage, and two 600-HP subwoofers are placed underneath the deck. System drive and optimization are handled by a Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system with two Galileo Callisto 616 array processors.

Kevin Potts and David Starck of Las Vegas-based Coherent Design handled system planning in close consultation with the church’s principal audio engineers: Meyers and Aaron Beck, a volunteer who is also head of sound for a resident Cirque du Soleil® production. System integration was handled by Las Vegas-based AVDB Group, with Bob Langlois responsible for overall direction and Daryl Porter handling on-site project management.

“They are serious about audio quality at The Crossing,” says Starck. “When they built this new worship space, they wanted to make sure everything was done to the highest standards.”

From an integrator’s perspective, the Meyer Sound solution has saved both time and money. “With a Meyer system, you pull it out of the box, and it works,” says Langlois. “The amount of labor is so much less than with other non-powered systems.”

The front end of The Crossing’s new audio system includes a Yamaha CL5 digital mixing console at FOH, Shure ULX-D wireless microphone systems, Shure PSM 900 IEMs, and wired microphones from Countryman, Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, Shure, and Audix.

Christie Donates Technology and Services to USC School of Cinematic Arts

Christie®, a global leader in advanced cinema technologies and visual display solutions, continued its technology partnership recently with the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts (USC SCA) by launching a state-of-the-art cinema experience at USC’s showcase theater, the Eileen Norris Theatre. Christie, through a generous donation of equipment and installation services, will be the sole provider of all cinematic and audio equipment within the Eileen Norris Theatre, and will be working together with USC SCA in enhancing visual technologies, specifically cinematic ones.

USC Eileen Norris Theatre


The Eileen Norris Cinema Theatre is a 341-seat motion picture theater set within the campus of USC and adjacent to the Cinematic Arts Complex. It is home to some of the School of Cinematic Arts’ largest classes and is the primary theater often used for large guest movie premieres and screenings of major Hollywood and International films at USC.

The Norris Theatre has undergone a total renovation of its projection and audio equipment, and with the help of Christie’s Professional Services team, will now showcase movies with the most immersive projection and audio system available. Highlighting the theater will be the Christie Solaria Series DLP® CP4230 4K projector. This 4K series projector is prepared for the next generation of digital cinema, giving audiences the best visual experience possible. The theater is now also outfitted with a complete Christie Vive Audio system, utilizing over 40 different speakers, sub-woofers, and amps. The Vive S218 and S215 subwoofer, LA3 and LAC3 line array speakers, as well as the LA45 and LA4C speakers are all installed and complement the theater’s Dolby Atmos® installation.

Christie Vive is specially configured to meet Dolby Atmos® sound technology requirements. Filmmakers use Dolby Atmos to place and move sounds anywhere in the movie theater, including overhead, to make film audiences feel as if they are inside the movie and not merely watching. Altogether, Christie has delivered to USC a solution to drive a captivating and unique experience that will give theatrical viewers a unique and truly immersive movie experience.

Commenting on the Eileen Norris Theatre installation, Eric Furie, Senior Technologist, USC CSA, said, “Christie and our staff are to be congratulated on their support, input, and hard work in making the Norris Theatre into such an extraordinary space. The theater and the content displayed in it have never looked or sounded better; it’s truly impressive!”

Christie’s CEO Jack Kline had a vision to partner with the prestigious cinema school, located in Los Angeles, near Christie’s headquarters, and cultivate a relationship through generous giving. Always wanting to give back, Mr. Kline believes that USC is the perfect educational environment in which to do that. The students in the School of Cinematic Arts are using cutting-edge technology in the creation of current content, film and visual experiences, and Christie’s equipment will be the foundation for that.

“Christie’s innovative culture, manifested through the cinema services, audio and visual technologies donated to USC, will complement the already vast knowledge and experience of the USC School of Cinematic Arts’ educators,” said Christie CEO Jack Kline. “Combined, the tools and expertise will inspire and equip future film makers to recreate humanity’s stories in the most lifelike and engaging ways possible.”

“The USC School of Cinematic Arts is one of the top-ranked film schools in the world so it’s only fitting they have selected Dolby Atmos for the Eileen Norris Theatre,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Dolby Laboratories. “Now the entire USC community including student and Hollywood filmmakers, many of which have embraced Dolby Atmos, will benefit from the premium quality Dolby delivers.”

Christie has been working with USC SCA in a philanthropic effort to provide not only current cinematic projection equipment, but also cutting-edge technological visual solutions for the school’s recently constructed Interactive Media Building. Through the working relationship with the university, Christie plans to further its donation efforts and become the primary technology provider for the school.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival: “The Meyer Sound System has Completely Changed the Artist & Audience Experience”

The 79-year-old Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) in Ashland has chosen Meyer Sound MINA™ line array loudspeakers to anchor the first full reinforcement setup in its 1,190-seat, outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre. With a stage house and thrust stage originally built for non-amplified performances, the theatre now benefits from an architecturally pleasing audio solution that heightens vocal clarity and musicality for the audience, while making performing easier for the actors.

“The Meyer Sound system has completely changed the experience for both artists and audience,” says Bill Rauch, artistic director of OSF. “The amplification is so subtle in the Shakespeare plays that the audience often cannot tell the actors are amplified, but they appreciate hearing and understanding every word.”

The move to a full reinforcement system was prompted by several factors, including the scheduling of more musicals, concerns about comprehension of Shakespearean language, and the directors’ desire to free the actors from always facing forward to project. With the repertory theatre changing the complete set daily, it was important to OSF that the system blended into the architecture without being incorporated into the scenic design.

OSF’s audio staff worked with Meyer Sound to design a visually unobtrusive solution using split center arrays of MINA loudspeakers, with two arrays of seven covering the orchestra and two of five covering the balcony. Outer left and right clusters of two-each UPQ-1P and UPQ-2P loudspeakers per side add stereo dimension for music and effects, while four 500-HP subwoofers supply musical low end and convincing effects—such as the giant’s footsteps in Into the Woods.

“For a language-based theatre company such as ours, nothing is more important than to hear the words with clarity,” says Rauch. “During Into the Woods, the singers are able to be heard clearly over a 20-piece orchestra—a revelation on this stage.”

Douglas Faerber, head of OSF’s sound department, adds: “Our new system is working beautifully. We really love it. We’ve had feedback from audiences about how they appreciate the clarity and the even and natural coverage, and the directors have been ecstatic about what they’re hearing.”

In addition, six UPM-1XP, two UP-4XP, and seven MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers provide under-balcony, box-fill, and front-fill coverage, respectively. System drive, optimization, and delay alignment is supplied by a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 and two Galileo 408 processors.

The audio renovation also includes a Yamaha CL5 digital mixing console and 32 channels of Sennheiser 2000 Series wireless systems with G3 beltpacks and MKE II Gold lavalier microphones.

Founded by Angus Bowmer in 1935, and recipient of a Tony Award for outstanding achievement in regional theatre, OSF presents an eight-month season of 11 plays in three theatres. Attendance at the approximately 800 yearly performances normally exceeds 400,000. The Allen Elizabethan Theatre was named in recognition of a $3 million grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. The new sound system was made possible by a gift from Judy Shih and Joel Axelrod of Ashland.

Prior to the 2014 season, another new Meyer Sound system was installed in OSF’s Thomas Theatre, with flexible deployment of UPJ-1P VariO™ loudspeakers along with UP-4XP and MM-4XP loudspeakers.

Masque Sound Blows the Roof Off The Acorn Theatre for Explosive New Musical, Atomic

Custom Audio Equipment Package Brings the Story of the Creation of the First Nuclear Bomb to Off-Broadway Stage

NEW YORK, JULY 30, 2014 — When the highly charged, new rock musical, Atomic ignited the stage at The Acorn Theatre at New York’s Theatre Row, Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, was on-hand to provide a custom audio equipment package to support Sound Designer Jon Weston and his team.

Atomic is a thrilling new off-Broadway musical that blasts open the doors of The Manhattan Project, a Government-funded program of top scientists who were faced with the task of creating the world’s first Atomic Bomb. The production depicts Hungarian American physicist and inventor Leó Szilárd as the mastermind behind atomic power whose heart has reservations. Ethics, scientific progress and true love are tested as Szilárd discovers exactly what he’s capable of when someone believes in him.

One of Weston’s biggest challenges in designing the sound for Atomic was the theatre’s layout itself. “The space we were dealing with is very wide and shallow, so coverage was a big concern,” says Weston. “In order to address those issues, equipment selection and its placement within the theatre, was critical. To accommodate the large scale of the show, we created an extensive sound system with Masque Sound’s assistance and support. Working in such a vast space, it was important to both the composer and director that the sound accurately depicts the many different emotions that run throughout this production, and I think that this custom audio equipment package allowed us to achieve that.”

In order to attain the soundscape he desired, Weston turned to the Avid VENUE Profile Console, which provides the sound quality, flexibility and reliability he was after. The main speaker system is comprised of a pair of d&b audiotechnik C7-TOP 15-inch two-way speakers. “The C7-TOP is a very musically-inclined, accommodating speaker,” Weston says. “It doesn’t wrap around or spill everywhere; its range goes exactly where it’s intended to and not much comes off the sides. It really is an excellent speaker and ideal for this production. We rounded out the main system with EAW JF200s and Meyer Sound UPA-1Ps, and it really sounds great.”

The surround system features RE Audio MT18s and Meyer Sound UPQ-1Ps that are also used as part of the effects system. The large, low end of the system includes d&b audiotechnik B4s and Q-subs, and Meyer Sound 650Ps. “The goal in the design of this surround system was to have an abundance of speakers working well within their set range, as opposed to having fewer speakers set up in a way that they sound draining,” adds Weston. “The system appears loud because of the contrast, but in reality it isn’t that loud.”

Additionally, Masque Sound supplied a microphone package featuring Sennheiser MKE-2s for the cast, as well as a wireless package featuring Sennheiser 5212 and 3532s. Masque Sound also provided frequency coordination for the 14 channels of wireless used for the show.

“Working with Masque Sound allows me to maximize my available options and budget,” says Weston. “It’s all about the relationship with the shop. I usually deal one-on-one with department personnel at Masque Sound, and they are always willing to go that extra step to help, which is critical to the success of a production’s sound design. I am very specific in my visions, and I know that can sometimes slow things down a bit, but they are always happy to oblige me, which is wonderful. The equipment Masque Sound provides, especially the microphones, are always top-notch. Even legacy equipment, which I like to use, is in stock and always in great shape. In addition to Masque Sound, I could not do what I do without the hard work of my personal team. Mixer/Associate Josh Millican and Assistant Sound Josh Staines do a great job of bringing it all together every performance.”

Atomic, running for a limited eight-week engagement, officially opened on Sunday, July 13 and is slated to run through August 16 at The Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues). To learn more about Atomic, visit www.atomicthemusical.com.

The Garden Relies on Forscene to Accelerate Editing Workflow for ‘On the Yorkshire Buses’

LONDON — July 29, 2014 – Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform Forscene, announced that award-winning U.K. production company The Garden used Forscene to speed up its logging and editing workflow on the eight-part reality series “On the Yorkshire Buses,” a show it is producing along with GroupM Entertainment for Channel 5. Forscene ensured that all producers, editors, and loggers had immediate access to footage as soon it was ingested from the shoot location and that they could work on it simultaneously, thereby saving time and money.

“We started editing in London whilst we were still filming in Yorkshire. We had to be able to scan and log footage at the same time, without holding up the editing process. Forscene was the quickest, easiest way to handle our footage in preparation for the edit, and it was incredibly easy to set up and use,” said Claire Birch, production manager at The Garden. “With Forscene, everyone could log in and see the footage instantly and when you consider the cost of FTP uploads or sending DVDs from the location, Forscene was not only faster, but far more economical. Another bonus was that our post house already had a Forscene server, and several people on our team were already familiar with the tools.”

During the course of production, the production team used Forscene to view and log more than 2,000 hours of footage, from a variety of sources and in various formats. Whilst in edit, producers then worked in Forscene, alongside the editor, to search for and identify key moments.

Later, after filming was complete and the entire operation was back in London, producers used Forscene to fact check and quality control original rushes.

The Garden also considered Forbidden’s support to be a major advantage of using Forscene.

“The Forscene team were always on hand for advice and technical assistance, and the online support was brilliant too,” Birch said. “Our loggers would use the chat tab to speak to the Forscene support team for assistance and found that the technicians were prepared for anything.”

“The Garden is responsible for creating programmes for major broadcasters in the U.K. and beyond, and by using Forscene on this production, they were able to access the content as quickly as it could be filmed and ingested, which saved precious time on a production where time was of the essence,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies plc. “The Garden’s situation is a good example of how Forscene can accelerate the workflow on any multisite production.”
