NASHVILLE’S HISTORIC SOUND EMPORIUM STUDIOS INSTALLS AN API LEGACY PLUS

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JULY 2014: Sound Emporium Studios is a go-to destination for artists including Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, and Alison Krauss, not to mention major projects by T-Bone Burnett. The facilities, built by “Cowboy” Jack Clement in 1969, are the birthplace of legendary recordings including Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler, REM’s Document, Sammy Davis Jr.’s final album, as well as Taylor Swift’s first. To meet the growing needs of its diverse clients, Sound Emporium consulted Rob Dennis at API reseller Rack-N-Roll, who directed the studio towards a 48-channel Legacy Plus console.

“Our clients have long requested an API in that room,” said studio manager, Juanita Copeland. “The flexibility, build and sonic quality, along with the reputation of API made it an easy decision. It just brings together a lot of great API sonic solutions into one user-friendly package. Having the 2500 bus compressor is the icing on the cake.” Copeland also mentioned having 48 inputs, 48 returns, and 12 aux inputs is a huge improvement to the studio’s former setup. The room can also be used for mixing now thanks to the Uptown 2 automation.

Since commissioning the console early this summer, it’s been used for tracking, overdubs, and some mixing. The Legacy Plus is already booked for major clients in the coming months, including one of the top 100 guitar players of all time, and a critically-acclaimed alternative country artist. Recordings for the hit ABC show Nashville are also booked for when filming resumes this month, as well as several rock projects later in the year. “We are just thrilled to finally have such an amazing console in that historic room!” adds Copeland.

ZONA RECORDING STUDIOS ADDS API’s THE BOX

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK – JULY 2014: Recording engineer John Zona works with much of the talent in the artistic-rich area of Huntington, New York through Zona Recording Studios. While currently running the studio around his full-time gig of pin striping motorcycles, he is transitioning his time mixing and recording from a hobby to a full-scale operation. As part of that transition, Zona has added API’s THE BOX to help bring enthusiasm and excellence to clients, ensuring they’ll come back and refer others.

“I am very pleased with my decision to purchase THE BOX,” recalls Zona. “After shopping around, doing research, and even demo-ing the board at the API headquarters in Maryland, it became clear API was the way to go. I am very impressed with the quality of the EQs, mic pre’s, as well as the reputation, construction, and warranty of the board.”

Zona, who is also an accomplished drummer, bass guitarist and composer, is presently taking the final steps in reconfiguring and wiring his updated studio space. While doing that, he’s using THE BOX to re-mix music he’s previously recorded. “I am getting results I had not even anticipated,” shares Zona. “I look forward to being an API customer for years to come.”

Calrec Consoles Drive Audio During World Cup Coverage

Artemis Consoles Used to Create Full Mixes in 5.1 and Stereo Simultaneously

HEBDEN BRIDGE, U.K. — July 21, 2014 – The BBC relied on Calrec Audio’s digital audio consoles during its coverage of the FIFA World Cup beginning in June. The broadcaster used a combination of three rented consoles to mix the audio in Brazil for transmissions in the U.K.

At the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Rio de Janeiro, two 24-fader Artemis Light consoles served as the first point of control in the signal path, responsible for submixing all sound associated with the matches and creating simultaneous 5.1 and stereo mixes. In addition, controlled commentary and controlled effects were passed on to all other users including the edit suits in the IBC, the various multiplatform control suites in the U.K., and the BBC’s studio broadcasting center (SBC), also in Rio.

At the SBC, a 56-fader Artemis Beam was used to combine the submixes from the IBC with other sources, including studio mics, postproduction playbacks, contributions from venue reporters/presenters, and audio-only playback such as music, sound effects, and voice recordings. These were all mixed into final 5.1 and stereo feeds and then passed on to the transmission network in the U.K.

“The BBC is our oldest customer and we have a long history of collaboration to ensure the products evolve to meet its needs,” said Jim Green, Calrec’s U.K. sales manager. “We’re always eager to support major projects like the World Cup broadcast from Brazil, where the BBC has taken advantage of Calrec functionality to make the whole workflow more efficient.

“Technology and viewer expectations are always moving forward, so each tournament faces new challenges that require better solutions,” Green added. Since the last World Cup there has been advancement in surround sound and loudness regulations, and this year the BBC has incorporated augmented- reality visual effects that bring their own set of audio-visual synchronization challenges. Calrec works closely with its customers to stay abreast of the technology and evolving requirements.”

Jünger Audio’s IBC 2014 Line Up Delivers Perfect Voice Recording

At IBC 2014 (10.A49), dynamics processing specialist Jünger Audio will show its D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor – a unique unit that is designed to make life easier for engineers working in radio stations, TV production voice-over studios and feature film ADR facilities.

What makes this processor so special is the inclusion of Jünger Audio’s proprietary Spectral Signature™ dynamic EQ – a totally new creative tool that offers automatic and dynamic EQ control to balance spectral differences in real-time. By analyzing incoming audio and comparing its spectrum with individually predetermined voice ‘fingerprints’, this clever unit can automatically apply dynamic EQ corrections to give a consistent sound.

For people working in TV voice over and feature film ADR, this facility is a Godsend because it allows them to deal with any changes in a performer’s voice. For example, if a performer has a sore throat on day three of a recording session and therefore sounds a bit different, this clever unit will look at the tonal characteristics of the actor’s voice on day one and automatically adjusts the frequency until both voices match. This ability to deliver consistent sound means that producers save money and time because they don’t have to cancel voice over or ADR sessions while they wait for an actor’s voice to return to normal.

Jünger Audio’s D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor is equally interesting to radio broadcasters who want to create an aural identity for their radio stations. By using similar spectral sound management principles, the unit measures the running program and uses the station master sound fingerprint as a reference. The Spectral Signature algorithm matches all different program elements to this reference signature, thus creating a dedicated ‘station sound’.

“The D*AP4 VAP draws on our extensive experience with previous Voice Processing devices such as our popular VO2, but adds new tools and algorithms to create an easier and more efficient approach to voice processing with no compromise in sound quality,” says Peter Pörs, CEO of Jünger Audio. “We have also included processing such as HP/LP filtering, versatile dynamics section, full parametric EQ and de-essing, and made the unit really easy to use – even for non-technical radio staff such as producers and journalists.”

Jünger Audio has also provided a dedicated voice leveler combined with an auto-mixer circuit to help mixed voice programs into loudness-based broadcasting on the fly. Using the optional SDI I/O card automated voice over for SDI embedded audio becomes an attractive feature of the D*AP4 VAP.

Connected as either an insert into a mixing desk or as a stand-alone unit, D*AP4 VAP offers interfaces that allow integration in existing environments via an AES insert. The unit can also be used with an optional analogue board that adds two high quality mic-preamps.

DPA Gets Up Close And Personal With Scarlett Johansson

DPA microphones turn up in some unusual places, but inside Scarlett Johansson’s t-shirt has to be one of the brand’s more exotic locations.

According to French sound engineer Stéphane Bucher, DPA’s d:screet™ 4060 miniature microphones were absolutely perfect for this role because they offered such exceptional audio quality. He used three of the mics to capture Johansson’s performance during the making of Lucy, a new film directed by Luc Besson that is due for theatrical release later this month.

“d:screet 4060 microphones are very small but that wasn’t the reason why I chose to use them,” Bucher explains. “It was all about their audio fidelity – when it comes to sound quality DPA 4060′s are much, much better than other lavalier mics on the market.”

As an internationally acclaimed sound engineer, Bucher has worked with numerous famous actors and directors including Morgan Freeman, Pierce Brosnan and Kevin Costner. In recent years many of the projects he has undertaken have come via major feature film producers such as EuropaCorp. He also owns and manages the Paris-based rental company, A4Audio, which supplies audio equipment to film and TV clients.

“During the filming of Lucy, it was important to take on board Luc Besson’s directing style,” Bucher explains. “He is not the easiest person but I was really happy to work with him. He shoots so fast and wants the actors ready to go when they come to set because he already knows exactly what he wants. Once the actors are here, it is too late, you’ll not have time to put a lavalier on anyone.”

Fortunately, the film’s costume designer Olivier Beriot completely understood Bucher’s problems and was able to work with him to devise a way of permanently attaching a microphone to Scarlett’s main costume.

“Olivier is the best costume designer I have ever worked with and I have huge respect for him,” Bucher says. “Scarlett’s main costume was a white, half translucent T-shirt so we used a white d:screet 4060 microphone which was inserted into the seam of the t-shirt by the dressmaker. We had three t-shirts ready at all times and the solution worked perfectly, giving us great audio but without any visibility issues.”

Bucher adds that this wasn’t the first time he’d used DPA microphones – indeed, he first started using them many years ago when he was recording classical music.

“Like every other sound mixer, my equipment is really important and I’m constantly looking for the best microphones, mixers, recorders, etc,” he says. “When I started working in film and TV sound, I was using the same lavalier microphones as everyone else because I didn’t really have a choice. Now I do have a choice and I can use the best mics available for cinema sound, which happen to be DPA. I originally chose them because I was tired of going to the cinema and hearing that recognizable sound you get with other lavalier microphones. DPA’s sound is really translucent and clear – to the point where sometimes I can’t tell if I’m listening to the boom or the 4060.”

Since completing Lucy, Bucher has been in the USA working with director Olivier Megaton on the film Taken 3, which stars Liam Neeson and Forest Whitaker. As the film requires audio to be recorded inside a car, DPA’s French distributor Audio2 equipped him with a number of d:dicate™ 4018 supercardioid microphones, which are ideally suited to this type of location work.

“They were great,” he says. “I used them for one particular car chase where Liam Neeson is driving very fast on the highway. I needed a very small mic to put into the car’s sun visor. We bought two new sun visors, opened them up and put the 4018 mics inside. This worked perfectly. We also tested them on a much simple car scene, in which Forest Whitaker is driving and talking, and they worked great for that, too.”

Stéphane Bucher is now in France preparing for his next film project, which will undoubtedly feature DPA microphones in a starring role.

“I’ve always been really happy with the audio quality DPA microphones deliver and that’s why I keep going back to them,” he says.

Artspace Studio Buys a Prism Sound Titan Audio Interface

Artspace Studio, one of London’s premier boutique recording, has recently invested in a Prism Sound Titan USB multi-track audio interface for its Brixton-based facility.

“Titan was recommended to me by quite a few people, including mastering engineer Mandy Parnell at Black Saloon Studios and Kirk DeGiorgio (aka As One),” explains mixing and mastering engineer/producer, Tom Gillieron. “We thought we’d test one out, and we were amazed! I do a lot of mixdown work for people and they send me tracks that they’ve mixed down ‘in the box’ in Pro Tools, Ableton or Logic. When I compare the mixes I have done through the Titan and then summed on the SSL Matrix, the clarity in the high end is amazing and the stereo image is far clearer and more impressive.”

Studio owner Olsi Rama agrees that the Prism Sound Titan has been the best purchase Artspace has made this year.

“We have used the pre amps a lot because they are great, and we have also used it to clock from our Digidesign 192s,” Rama says. “We have an 8-track 3M tape machine at the studio and sometimes we like to record drums onto that. With the Titan’s fantastic conversion we can get back into the computer really easily without losing the warm analogue sound.”

Artspace is developing a strong reputation as the place to record in London. Artists who have recently worked in the facility include Jamie T, Marmozets, The Severed Limb and Martyn Ware (Human League). It is a mixed digital and analogue recording facility that offers three rooms, including a large live room, the Octagon, billed as a distinctive space ideal for laying down drums and group recordings.

Rama adds that another feature both he and Gillieron like is Titan’s versatile USB connection.

“This is great because it allows visiting engineers to just plug in their laptop with their preferred software and make an immediate connection to our vintage outboard processors without losing any of the detail,” he says.

Gillieron adds: “I have mixed down some tracks that I started elsewhere, on different speakers and on headphones and so on. The Prism Sound unit gave all the projects a bit of a boost – to my ears – which was exciting but also made me listen to them more carefully and mistakes became more obvious.”

For the future Gillieron is looking forward to using the Titan on multitrack field recordings of live musicians, but he’s already impressed with what it has revealed through his current and long-standing audio set-up.

“I have mastered a few tracks using the Titan and I find it’s easier for me to pinpoint unnecessary resonance than it was with what we were using before,” he says. “And I’ve been using the same speakers and amp for about 18 years.”

Gillieron has recently remixed PHORIA and his re-mix can be heard at this link: https://soundcloud.com/phoriamusic/emanate-tom-gillieron-remix
