AUGUSTA, KANSAS – APRIL 2010: Like many schools built in the 1970s, Augusta High School in Augusta, Kansas had outlived the usefulness of its sound reinforcement systems and, given the new and relatively inexpensive technologies available today, was ready to shed the clunky interfaces and fuzzy fidelity to which everyone had become inured. The school hired Wichita-based McClelland Sound, among the largest and most experienced sound engineering and contracting firms in Kansas. Founded at the dawn of sound reinforcement in 1928, McClelland is responsible for literally thousands of installations in all manner of buildings throughout the region. Vice president Scott Martin, who began his career with McClelland in 1974, took Augusta High School’s case and, in place of a market leader, used Ashly network-ready amplification and signal processing to give the school worry-free, easy-to-use, and utterly transparent reinforcement. more

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – APRIL 2010: Longtime FOH engineer and production manager Terry Friedman (Village People, Grace Jones) has, in recent years, stepped off the tour bus to offer schools, houses of worship, and other establishments in New York City his no-nonsense approach to audio under the ironic name Noise and Distortion. Reacting against industry dogma that sets digital equipment apart from its analog forbears, Friedman rightly points out that we only hear in analog and so a unit’s analog representation is ultimately all that matters. But Friedman is no Luddite and frequently relies on SymNet open-architecture digital signal processing equipment to convey analog warmth with digital logic, flexibility, and power, safe from tinkering fingers. more
