Americus, Georgia’s Central Baptist Church Gets a Total Audio Makeover with the Help of GC Pro

CentralBaptist

— GC Pro Account Manager Brad Lyons and GC Pro Affiliate Program Member Commercial Sound And Video take Central Baptist Church into the era of contemporary worship with a new sound system includingdigital audio console, in-ear monitoring and upgraded backline —

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, November 6, 2014 — The last time the Central Baptist Church of Americus, Georgia, got a new sound system, the church’s music was focused around the traditional elements of choir and organ. Times changed, and so did the church’s style of worship, which has expanded to encompass more contemporary forms of praise and worship music, with electric guitars and drums joining the joyful noise. These changes, however, made the inadequacy of the original sound system readily apparent. “There was more instrumentation and far more low-end signal to the newer music, and that exposed the shortcomings of the old sound system,” says Rodney Powe, the Central Baptist Church’s Worship Leader. “The style of worship and available technology had advanced, and it was just time to move to a new sound system.” That led the church to Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users.

Atlanta-based GC Pro Account Manager Brad Lyons spent time listening to the needs of the church and helped design a completely new sound system, including connecting them with locally based AV systems integrator Commercial Sound And Video, which provided installation services. “We knew it would be a big undertaking, so we were pleased that we had partnered with a company that could handle the entire project, helping us choose products and equipment and directing installation,” says Powe.

And it was a big project. Lyons summarized the situation: “Some areas were too loud, others you could barely hear anything at all, and no bass response,” he says of the sanctuary’s sound system. “On-stage monitoring for the band was a hodge-podge at best. We transformed their entire sound system, customizing it to the unique challenges in their large worship space, but we also re-designed the stage layout and provided a state-of-the-art personal monitoring system for the large praise team and orchestra.”

A new system using four Electro-Voice EVF1152D 15-inch cabinets was flown above the main floor in a 90×60 coverage pattern, and each with an Electro-Voice EVU1082 8-inch downfill cabinet mounted. A total of eight Electro-Voice EVU1082 fill cabinets were placed in the balcony, four per side. A pair of Electro-Voice EVF2151D Dual 15inch subwoofers fills the entire sanctuary with powerful bass. The power amps are Electro-Voice CPS-series power amps, with control using an Electro-Voice DC-ONE system processor. The existing 48-channel analog mixer (with 16-channel auxiliary mixer) was replaced with a 64-channel AVID S3L console with four independent stage boxes. Three racks on-stage and one at the FOH booth completely bypass the original analog patching system, providing a superior upgrade in sound and eliminating cable mess on the stage. The AVID S3L also provides 64-tracks recording to Pro Tools connected via CAT5 to the supplied Apple iMac computer and Glyph hard-drive, designed for playback in virtual sound check mode. This allows them to record rehearsals, then play the tracks back to fine-tune the individual channel settings for a better mix.

“Central Baptist broadcasts live over local radio, and this greatly enhances the quality of mix,” says Nathan Miller, owner and founder of Commercial Sound And Video. “However, they are going to transition into post-production, allowing them to remix the worship services for a more polished sound, something not previously possible for them.”

Lyons added, “With the S3L there is full recall of all settings and scenes. Every Easter they have a big production and this will allow them to have total control of the production.”

Based on Lyons’ design, Commercial Sound And Video installed a PIVITEC 32-input personal monitor system controlled via Apple iPad Minis with a total of nine independent mix stations and the ability to add as many more as they wish. There were many custom touches, with the goal of making the operation as simple as possible. One such feature was a customized patch panel consisting of eight XLR Male and eight SPEAKON connectors that took the guesswork out of connecting a stage monitor into the system.

Lyons adds, “Although the PIVITEC in-ear system was an amazing upgrade for the worship band, we still needed to provide traditional monitors to the choir, instruments, lead vocals and other musicians. Typically I would have to go find a speaker, a power amp and the cables, route a channel out of the console into the amp, connect a speaker cable to the speaker, and so forth. But here I designed the panel to take any confusion or error out of the situation. The process is simple really — I designed eight specific outputs from the VENUE S3L console for MONITOR MIX OUTPUTS, labeled MONITOR 1 through MONITOR 8. Patching into any of the XLR Inputs of the panel fed directly to a specific amplifier channel on the Electro-Voice CPS8.5 power amp (eight channels at 500-watts power per channel), and that speaker output then fed back to the SPEAKON out below the XLR connector. Powe and his team can simply plug in a speaker cable to the desired speaker, and voila!”

“Another thing that makes GC Pro so unique is their access to Guitar Center’s entire inventory,” states Rodney Powe. “We invested in four Radial JDImk3 direct boxes (keyboards) and two RED DI instrument pre-amps from A-Designs for the guitars. But with the new DP7 microphone package from Audix, our drums sound better than ever, because each drum is individually mic’d, plus a pair of overheads which we didn’t have before. And with that combined with our 32-channel PIVITEC personal monitoring system, our musicians can hear everything. This is one of the many reasons that our leadership at Central Baptist Church chose the design from GC Pro, because it was more than just upgrading speakers – it was a full solutions systems approach.”

The result was a total success. “We are getting lots of positive comments on the way our music sounds now, and we have GC Pro to thank for that,” says Powe, who adds that GC Pro continues to support them, with Brad Lyons calling recently with a free software upgrade for the Avid console. “They were there for us during a complicated upgrade, and they continue to be there for us. It’s great working with them.”

Bose® RoomMatch® System Used by Foreigner at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City

Foreigner_4_RoomMatchB

Rock legends expand their relationship with Bose® Professional with new RoomMatch® system, installed for a special concert of fan favorites and deep cuts from the classic 1981 album 4

Framingham, Massachusetts, November 6, 2014 – Rock legends Foreigner recently staged a special concert event at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. As a special treat for fans, the band focused on both classic singles and deeper cuts from the classic 1981 album 4 – the original home of “Juke Box Hero,” “Urgent,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You” and other fan favorites. They even pulled out special acoustic arrangements of well-known concert staples to give the fans something distinct. For the audio system, the band, its management and audio team turned to a trusted name: Bose® Professional.

The band currently uses Bose L1® Model II systems with B2 bass modules and T1 ToneMatch® engine for their VIP performances, but for this event, they used a custom-installed system consisting of two six-module RoomMatch Progressive Directivity Arrays with six RMS218 subwoofers. The system was powered with PowerMatch® amplifiers and employed Dante™ networking to pass audio between stage left and right amplifier locations. Brian Simon, FOH Audio Engineer for the band, had taken part in a RoomMatch system demo several months ago, and thought this performance and venue in particular would be a golden opportunity to put such a system to good use.

“Bose is a name we trust in the Foreigner organization, based on our experiences in the past,” stated Brian Simon. “After the RoomMatch demo, I was curiously awaiting a chance to mix the band on a RoomMatch system in the right venue. In fact, I wanted an opportunity to ‘push’ the system with higher SPL’s. I was not disappointed; the system performed very well in the room and provided the audience an all-around balanced sound in every seat. I was impressed.”

Phil Carson, Foreigner Manager, stated, “We did not know exactly what to expect with a RoomMatch system, but I do know our expectations were high. We have used Bose products at our VIP events with excellent results. The band and our FOH Audio Engineer were extremely happy with the sound of the system, and the bottom line is that the audience really loved the sound that night. We always knew the system would deliver, and in fact it exceeded our expectations.”

Founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones agrees: “Bose continues to impress. The Borgata show was all about the fans; we’ve put on some great-sounding shows recently, but it was extra-important to us that the sound for this one would be impeccable. We’ve used the L1 system for our VIP events to achieve a close, intimate environment – the RoomMatch system did something similar, but on a much larger, more powerful scale. Everyone was thrilled – the band, our engineers, the fans, and everyone else. Thank you to Bose for a magical night.”

Genelec Home Audio Unveils G Five Active Loudspeaker

G_Five_Black G_Five_White

NATICK, MA — Genelec Home Audio is unveiling its new G Five Active Loudspeaker, the flagship model in the Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers for home audio. Despite its relatively small size, the G Five brings out a level of performance comparable to much larger loudspeakers. Its bass reproduction goes lower than what most subwoofers can do, providing at the same time extremely high sound pressure with very low distortion. Thanks to its large waveguide, the Genelec G Five reproduces all the nuances and dynamics of the audio material with incomparable fidelity. As featured in all Genelec G Series, the G Five provides acoustical response adjustments to allow correct setup and acoustical calibration to the room it is placed in. The G Five can even be placed in an acoustically challenging room and provide an amazing listening experience.

The G Five (Woofer 8″ + Tweeter 1″) joins four other models in the G Series: G One (Woofer 3″ + Tweeter 3/4″), G Two (Woofer 4″ + Tweeter 3/4″) and G Three (Woofer 5″ + Tweeter 3/4″) and G Four (Woofer 6.5″ + Tweeter 3/4″); as well as the complementary F One (6.5″ active) and F Two (8″ active) subwoofers. The G Five and its brethren feature elegant industrial design by award-winning designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec’s R&D team. Designed to be used together or separately, G Series models and the complementary F Series subwoofers offer an exceptional home audio solution.

The G Five active two-way loudspeaker combines an organic, rounded form with powerful and precise sound reproduction. The gently curving design is not chosen for good looks alone. Sharp edges or corners on a loudspeaker enclosure cause acoustic reflections that interfere with the direct sound. This harmful interference – diffraction – is dramatically reduced by the smooth, curved design of the G Series, audible in the excellent resolution and solid sound imaging of the products. Blending seamlessly to the enclosure shape, the proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) formed around the high-frequency driver is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the two drivers. This results in a smooth frequency response on- and off-axis and controlled directivity maximizing the direct sound aimed to the listening area.

G Five Specifications:

Maximum sound pressure: 110 dB per loudspeaker @ 1 m
Frequency response: 35 Hz – 21 kHz (-3 dB)
Drivers: Bass 8″ + Treble 1″ metal dome + DCW
Amplifier power: Bass 150 W + Treble 120 W
Dimensions: H x W x D: 17.8125″ x 11.25″ x 10.9375″ with Iso-Pod™ (452 x 286 x 278 mm)
Weight: 28 lb (12.7 kg)

Nashville’s New City Winery Gets Outfitted With An Abundance Of Shure Gear

NILES, Ill., Nov.12, 2014—With locations in New York City, Chicago, and Napa, City Winery, the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory, came to Nashville with one goal—to create a space that embodies the city’s shared passions for wine and music. A unique facility, City Winery combines a fully-functioning winery with intimate concerts, food and wine classes, private events, and fine dining. With upcoming performances from JT Hodges and Rhett Miller, the City Winery team turned to Shure to outfit the new location with audio equipment for private parties, a small restaurant stage, and a larger 570-person music venue.

City Winery partnered with Tour Supply, a company well-known in the live touring industry and audio partner for the existing City Winery locations, to integrate high-quality, intuitive gear. The challenge was to identify cost-effective, yet reliable products to serve a variety of different functions. Also, while the City Winery music venue is supported by a house production manager, the restaurant, winery, and private rooms required frequency agile systems that could be operated seamlessly by restaurant staff who have very little technical audio experience.

To address the many needs of City Winery, Tour Supply selected four channels of ULX-S® Wireless Systems and PSM® 900 Personal Monitoring Systems for the music venue. The team installed three channels of Shure’s entry-level BLX Wireless Systems for the restaurant and winery areas, MX412 Gooseneck Microphones to support corporate presentations and a dash of Shure wired and wireless microphones, including Beta 58, Beta 91A, Beta 98A, SM58®, and SM57.

“City Winery has been an amazing project for our team. The combination of wine, music, and culinary arts is something that appeals to the senses, but when under one roof, it makes for a challenging audio installation,” said Lance Wascom, Tour Supply CEO. “We’ve had close to a 20-year relationship with Shure. Using Shure equipment was a no-brainer for us, as it was for Mr. Dorf and his team. Not only is the sound quality superior, but the gear comes with great support from the Shure customer service team and our local reps over at HWPco Inc.”

A month into operations, the ULX-S Wireless System has proven effective in delivering premium sound quality for music acts. Additionally, the wireless is reliable and in a compact, seek form factor, fitting for the venue layout. In regard to PSM 900, Wascom commented “it’s the best dollar for dollar investment. We trust PSM for our touring artists and the PSM 900 delivers superb audio quality for the professional musicians performing at City Winery.”

In the restaurant and winery, the BLX Wireless System—with professional quality sound, simple setup, and an intuitive interface—has been easy for employees to use. The one-touch QuickScan frequency selection, that quickly locates the best open frequency in case of interference, means that employees don’t have to be bothered with the complexities of manual scanning. Additionally, the quality construction ensures it will hold up in the high-traffic environment.
