MLA Compact Training For Max Production In Hong Kong

Martyn ‘Ferrit’ Rowe with sound engineers at Max Production


Hong Kong-based Max Production Ltd, one of the first adopters of Martin Audio’s MLA and MLA Compact systems in the Far East, recently underwent full technical training.

Following the recent purchase of an MLA Compact 24, both Martin Audio Regional Application Support Engineer Chris Pyne and Technical Training Manager Martyn (Ferrit) Rowe arrived at Max Production’s HQ in Sha Tin district to carry out the intensive three day training course afforded all Martin Audio MLA network partners.

The course was conducted by Ferrit and attended by ten of Max Production’s senior and junior staff as well as technicians and an interpreter from Budee, the MLA territorial distributor.

Chris Pyne, who conducted the introduction and initiation course, explained the content of the workshop. “The formal class room audio theory and system functions plus software and venue design studies take place over two days. The third day is dedicated to system rigging and safety, with system optimizations, listening tests and problem solving. We also do a sub bass array and system design class.”

He confirms that he will be returning in March to support Max Production with a major concert at the Asia World Arena utilizing the company’s entire MLA and MLA Compact inventory.

Summing up, Pine adds, “It was an enjoyable experience, with the Max management clearly pleased and excited by owning the first MLA system in Hong Kong. South-east Asia is proving a very strong growth area for both MLA and MLA Compact.”

About MLA™ (Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array)
The result of many years of intensive R&D, MLA’s methodology replaces trial-and-error array design with intelligent numerical optimization of the array’s output based on a highly accurate acoustic model. The multi-cellular format has six individual cells in each enclosure, each with its own DSP and amplification.

With up to 24 enclosures, each MLA array has up to 144 cells — too great a number to optimize manually, or by ear. Instead, Martin Audio’s proprietary Display2™ system design software automatically calculates FIR DSP filters for each cell and a redundant-ring audio network (U-NET™) downloads the settings into each array enclosure. Martin Audio’s VU-NET™ software provides real-time control and monitoring of the system.

MLA delivers a frequency response and SPL consistency never before achievable; a very high system output (140dB peak, per cabinet @1m); Automatic optimization of the array, both physically (splay angles) and electronically (DSP); Computer control and monitoring of the entire system, and total control of sound system balance for engineers and sound technicians.

MLA is fully integrated, with Class D amplification, DSP and U-NET digital audio
network built into each enclosure. MLA complete systems are ready-to-use, with MLA, MLD and MLX enclosures, flying hardware, software, cabling and training all supplied. Everything needed is included. All ancillary items — from tablet PC and Merlin™ controller to network interconnects and mains distro — are also included in the complete system package. This ensures full compatibility worldwide, down to cabling and accessories.

Additional features include 90° x 7.5° dispersion; a compact size (1136mm wide x 372mm high x 675mm deep), one-box-fits-all (festivals to theaters) application range and a global voltage, power factor corrected power supply.

MLA’s compact size and very high output allows it to be shipped using smaller trucks, offering considerable savings and reduced carbon footprint. The system also includes the MLX powered, flyable subwoofer capable of an unprecedented measured peak output of 150dB @ 1m; MLD downfill cabinet, and Merlin 4-in/10-out system controller and network hub. Audio input is via analog, AES3 or U-NET.

By adopting these principles and system components MLA is optimized for every member of the audience — from a 2,000 capacity theater, to a 20,000-seat arena, to a 100,000-person festival site. It will deliver the engineer’s exact mix to every seat (up to over 150 meters) with precision, exceptional power and clarity.

THE MUSIC PRODUCERS GUILD AND PPL HIGHLIGHT THE BENEFITS OF THE ELIGIBLE STUDIO PRODUCER FORM

The Music Producers Guild and PPL hosted a session to explain the value and importance of the Eligible Studio Producer Form which PPL launched last year.

More than 50 people attended the event, which was hosted by MPG Chairman Steve Levine. The panel consisted of Camilla Waite (PPL Head of Legal & Business Affairs), Penny White (PPL Head of Member Services) and MPG’s Tommy D (producer, artist and label owner, who has worked with artists such as Catatonia, Beyoncé, Jay-Z and KT Tunstall).

The Music Producers Guild and PPL have worked closely together to launch the Eligible Studio Producer Form which, while not introducing a change in policy, was designed to provide evidence of a studio producer’s performance at the time of recording. The form, which was launched in June 2012 and is being trialled for one year, allows all parties to agree, at the point of recording, what contributions have been made on a track. This simple form eases the path for producers to make royalty claims with PPL by providing an elegant and transparent process that clarifies future payments.

Steve Levine, chairman of the Music Producers Guild, says: “As this income is an important revenue stream for recording musicians, record companies and producers, we wanted to ensure that our members understood the process so that they don’t lose out on any potential income. This seminar answered many of their queries and we hope it will give them the confidence to make claims for payments using PPL’s new Eligible Studio Producer Form.”

During the debate Tommy D said he hoped the new form would eventually replace the track sheets that were used historically. He pointed out that the form’s main benefit was to identify the role the producer had played during the session in order to avoid future royalty disputes. Where a studio producer does not give an audible contribution (such as vocals or instrumentals) they may still be eligible to receive royalties from PPL if they conduct (or provide a similar musical direction) to another performer’s live performance as it is being recorded. The form is designed to be submitted to PPL as evidence in support of these “non-audible” contributions. If producers have also performed audible contributions, such as vocals or playing an instrument, then PPL recommends that studio producers make claims with PPL for each of these roles (if not already included in the data submitted by the record company).

After the panel discussion, which generated some lively debate, attendees were able to access personal advice from PPL‘s member services team who were on hand to help with PPL-related queries.

DPA Microphones Help Morgan Ågren Demonstrate Drum Miking

DPA Microphones played a vital role in helping nearly 100 studio engineers get to grips with the black art of miking a drum kit during a workshop seminar given by Grammy award-winning drummer Morgan Ågren.

Entitled Producers Seminar: Drums with Morgan Ågren, the seminar took place in Stockholm and was hosted by Swedish Studio Magazine, in conjunction with DPA Microphones and Avid/Pro Tools. Opus3 label founder and “Microphone Doctor” Jan-Eric Persson was also a guest speaker.

“The aim of this workshop was to show how to record and mix drums and percussion,” Morgan Ågren explains. “There was a strong focus on sound ideals and I used examples from my own Pro Tools sessions, with and without software plugins, to demonstrate the points I was making. I also played some CDs that I have mixed and some that I simply find inspiring.”

Ågren used a DPA d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone on his kit-pig compact drum kit. To demonstrate transient response he conducted a test with a similar microphone from another manufacturer and the audience reaction to the DPA d:vote was incredibly positive. He also explained the advantages of having as few different types of microphones as possible so that the sound blended together better. His personal preference is for DPA microphones, which he likes to use for all of the instruments he is recording.

Ågren also discussed the importance of recording as cleanly as possible, and referred this back to his own experiences where he is often recording for people who are not 100% sure of the character they want for the final version of the track. He explained that it was important to leave that decision to the person who was going to mix the track so that they could decide on the sound they wanted.

To complete the seminar, Ågren gave a practical demonstration of drum kit miking using DPA 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphones. Designed to offer a linear off-axis response in a smaller frequency bandwidth, DPA 2011 microphones make stage separation and gain-to-feedback higher and microphone level easier to control.

“I always use DPA microphones because they sound better than any other mike I’ve tried,” Ågren says. “They even sound better on the snare, which is rare for a condenser mike. I now own 12 DPA microphones and during this seminar I was happy to tell the audience why I like them so much.”

Born in Umeå, Sweden, Ågren has been a drummer since the age of four and first performed live when he was seven. In conjunction with blind keyboardist Mats Öberg, he formed the Mats/Morgan Band in the mid-1990s and began releasing CDs on his own label, Ultimate Audio Entertainment. The band has subsequently toured in Europe, Asia and the USA where Ågren and Öberg’s superb playing ability has amazed progressive jazz/rock audiences.

As a drummer, Ågren has also played and recorded with many internationally acclaimed artists including Frank Zappa, Bill Laswell, Steve Vai, and Mike Keneally. He was also voted No.1 in Modern Drummers reader’s poll in the Fusion category and is widely admired by professional drummers on both side of the Atlantic.
