OWATONNA, MN: Rapidly progressing from nascent electronica music experiments in his parents’ basement back in 2007, singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Adam Young evolved from initial iTunes sales and a burgeoning Myspace site to a major deal with Republic Records in 2008, and on to Fireflies, a six-time platinum single, from his Ocean Eyes debut album (certified platinum in 2010). Increasing critical and commercial success has intensified Young’s focus on his music. To support his creativity he moved from his family home to a handsome rustic log cabin deep in the Minnesota woods, where he recently completed construction on a Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG, ‘dream’ studio.

“Adam Young’s manager Steve Bursky was impressed by our Jungle City Studio in NYC when he worked there a couple of years ago,” reports WSDG project manager, Joshua Morris. “When Adam decided to build a studio in his new home, Bursky suggested that he talk with us. I visited the site and met with him to get a true sense of what he was looking for. The local contractor was extremely meticulous in meeting all the requirements of our drawings. The results of our final acoustic measurements for reverberation time and Sound isolation met or exceeded all our goals. This studio is a gem.”

Owl City features a spacious (675 sq. ft.) control room outfitted with an SSL AWS console, Adam Audio S-4XV mains, twin 60” LCD monitors and an extensive collection of outboard gear. The studio was constructed with natural wood to compliment the log cabin’s interior and exterior setting. The Control Room is outfitted with a custom rolling slate-topped producer’s desk, and four mobile equipment racks to facilitate room reconfiguration to accommodate diverse session requirements. WSDG also designed an innovative, polycylindrical ceiling cloud to fine-tune the mixing position. A (225 sq. ft.) live room with a (35 sq. ft.) vocal booth supports Young’s primarily keyboard-based productions. PK Pandey, founder of GCPRO, coordinated the technology package.

Commenting on his new studio Adam Young remarked, “It was a tremendous honor and privilege working with John Storyk and WSDG PM, Joshua Morris, and systems designer, Federico Petrone. The studio they designed exceeded all my expectations. I couldn’t be happier working in the environment they created to suit every specific need I had. It looks fantastic and sounds even better, and at the end of the day I am thrilled to be the proud owner of such a fabulous studio. Endless thanks, WSDG.”

Lighthouse Evangelism Upgrades with Two SSL Live. L500 Consoles

WOODLANDS, SINGAPORE - The services at Lighthouse Evangelism Woodlands in Singapore are being heard in a new light thanks to the addition of two SSL Live. L500 consoles, one for its front of house duties and the other for monitors mixes. As Lighthouse Evangelism’s recording studio is home to a Duality SE, the choice of SSL for the sound system at the Woodlands venue was a natural progression.SSL Live

With the help of SSL’s Singapore office, the two L500 consoles were delivered and installed by Managing Director Chan Kheng Wah and Live Marketing Manager Dominic Koh, who also facilitated the sale and are coordinating local training and support. The SSL consoles were chosen to replace Woodlands’ previous consoles and have delivered a significant sonic improvement.

“The difference between the previous consoles and the SSL L500s is like night and day,” says Rhey Ruiz, Head of Sound for Lighthouse Evangelism. “The microphone preamplifiers are amazing. We can hear so much more of our instrumentation, which has really contributed to the enjoyment and fulfillment that the congregation experiences at each service. What’s more, we record all of our services to multi-track, and the integration of the recording capabilities has been perfect. We can record directly from the microphone to the recorder without any filtering, which is something we were not able to do in the past.”

Lighthouse Evangelism Woodlands hosts various worship services throughout the week, accommodating as many as 4,000 people with an average weekly attendance of 15,000 congregants. The new SSL Live. consoles were installed in the Main Hall Sanctuary of the multi-level facility, which features a two-tier seating arrangement. The console used for front-of-house duties accommodates band instrumentation, choir and microphones for the pastors as well as for guests and congregants. The second L500, situated stage-side, serves as the monitor console. The two consoles share inputs from SSL stageboxes via SSL’s Blacklight II high-bandwidth, multiplexed MADI interface, which reduces the number of interconnecting cables between stage rack, FOH and monitor desks. The system additionally employs SSL’s arbitrated gain sharing.

Founded in April 1978, Lighthouse Evangelism continues to serve its congregation in English, Mandarin and other Chinese dialects.

SSL Live. L500 Consoles Deliver Flawless Performance for 30th Annual Victoires de la Musique

PARIS - Celebrating its 30th year, Les Victoires de la Musique is France’s most prestigious annual awards ceremony, akin to the Grammy and Brit Awards, which is broadcast live from the 5,000 seat Le Zénith arena in Paris. The nearly four-hour show, in which the French Music industry recognizes the year’s top recording artists, featured performances by David Guetta, Brigitte, Jean Louis Aubert and Christine and the Queens, among others, who were all supported by a full orchestra. For this year’s live performances and broadcast, the ceremony’s audio crew turned to four SSL Live. L500 consoles to deliver the ultimate sonic performance for FOH and monitors.SSL Live. L500 at Victoires de la Musique 2015_MQ

Supplied for the event by Parisian rental firm Silence, the L500′s intelligent and comfortable layout, with its intuitive touch screen and hardware controls, allowed the ceremony’s two front-of-house engineers to deliver a flawless show. The production was extremely technically sophisticated, with 10 SSL stageboxes on stage. Fabien Chanier, who handled the FOH mix for the performers, and Stephane Pelletier, who mixed the orchestra, deftly handled the immense workload of this technically complex live event. Chanier and Pelletier also faced the sonically challenging placement and use of movable screens, which were shifted around the stage throughout the show, obscuring different loudspeakers at varying times.

In addition to the two SSL Live consoles at FOH, two more L500s were stationed at the monitor position, where Alex Maggi mixed the bands’ monitors while Jerome Kalfon controlled the orchestra’s. Gilles Hugo, director of Silence, the Paris-based AV company that provided sound services for the show, served as the ceremony’s director of sound. Already an enthusiastic SSL Live user, Silence also recently used an L500 for the NRJ Music Awards, presented by NRJ Radio and broadcasted on TF1 TV.

Video Devices PIX 270i Provides Ultimate Flexibility for Clark Media

BETHLEHEM, PA, MARCH 23, 2015 – As a leading production equipment provider, Clark Media’s clients have come to rely on them for the latest and highest quality production solutions. They also turn to the company for advice and recommendations on implementing the best workflow for evolving productions. With this in mind, Clark Media recently incorporated the flexible PIX 270i file-based video deck from Video Devices-mission-critical video products by Sound Devices-into its rigs to accommodate its customers’ ever-changing needs.Clark Media

With more than 30 PIX recorders in its inventory, Clark Media primarily uses the PIX 270i in custom rackmount fly-pack kits. They are packaged into “twin-packs” and “six-packs,” giving clients maximum flexibility when it comes to scaling the number of recorders needed for a particular recording project. Clark Media currently provides HD camera systems and a complete PIX 270i record solution for The Kitchen airing on Food Network and Moonshiners on the Discovery Network. Given the company also supports such major corporations as American Express, NASDAQ, VIGA, Merck, Bristol Myers Squib, Bank of America and Morgan Stanley, it is necessary for them to have multiple recorders on-hand. Additionally, the compact size of the PIX 270i lends perfectly to Clark Media’s mobile truck customers, who require the ability to capture multiple camera feeds in a limited space.Clark Media Moonshiners

“Since many of our clients’ productions take place both in the studio and on location, the compact design of the PIX 270i allows them to have several channels of record in a very small footprint,” says Gary Snyder, President, Clark Media. “An added feature of the PIX 270i is the built-in monitor, as it allows the user to monitor all of the key parameters in real time. Currently, we have a mix of clients that use either ProRes or DNxHD, and the ability of the PIX 270i to record either format is a major benefit. Another huge advantage of the PIX 270i is that it can write directly to external drives, including approved 1TB drives, enabling us to record for extended lengths. At the end of the day, we simply remove the drive and hand it over to our clients’ post departments.”

The PIX 270i offers significant advantages and time savings to production workflows, providing tapeless, file-based recording and playback with the ability to access and transfer high-quality files over Ethernet. The unit records edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD files and allows simultaneous multi-drive recording, giving production staff peace of mind with their rock-solid redundancy and four-drive backup capabilities. The extensive audio capabilities, including 64 channels of both MADI audio and Dante audio-over-Ethernet, make the PIX 270i a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that is ideal for when there is a need for multiple tracks of audio, such as live events, concerts and sports broadcasts.

“The PIX 270i is at just the right price point to provide our customers with high-quality recording that won’t negatively impact the budget for our production jobs,” adds Snyder. “Our engineers are also big fans of its Dante capabilities, because the audio requirements on many of our jobs are usually very complex. We have been using Dante to take advantage of this flexibility, and record 16 channels of audio to each and every recorder. This makes the post-production process very easy, because the editors do not have to search for any ISO microphones.”

The PIX 270i offers 3G-SDI (12-bit, 4:4:4) and HDMI I/O, and can record at numerous data rates. Full RGB Apple ProRes 4444 (330 Mbps) and low-data-rate proxy files (36 Mbps) are available. Files are ready for import directly into popular editing environments, including Avid, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding.

Up to four drives-two SATA drives in PIX-CADDYs and two SATA-connected drives-can be connected to the PIX 270i. All four drives can be recorded to simultaneously or sequentially for redundancy and long-form programs. This redundancy in local, removable storage devices, coupled with standard, Ethernet-based file-transfer features, further reduces steps in the production workflow. Recording to multiple drives offers immediate file backup, eliminating time-consuming post-record copying. Gigabit Ethernet network ports enable remote access to recorded files and the ability to transfer these files quickly into a post-production environment.
The PIX 270i’s mission-critical reliability is further enhanced with DC redundancy, FileSafe(tm) and PowerSafe(tm) technologies. PowerSafe offers a built-in 10-second power reserve to protect against loss of data due to power interruption while FileSafe automatically recovers files should a drive be accidentally disconnected during recording.

Customer service is a major factor in Clark Media’s continued use of the company’s products. “It’s obvious that Sound Devices values Clark Media as a client because of the interactions we’ve had with support,” adds Snyder. “We at Clark feel as though our voices are heard, especially when we see improvements in firmware that appear to be the result of conversations we’ve had with the company. Sound Devices is one of the most reliable and pro-active companies we have dealt with. We plan to add more PIX 270i recorders to our inventory as it has become our go-to solution for a majority of our clients.”

With offices local to both NY and LA, Clark Media provides corporations, production companies and networks with multi-camera production support and digital workflow solutions. Clark Media harnesses the resources of its in-house engineering departments combined with the substantial inventory of broadcast equipment in its rental department to provide a single source solution for even the largest events.

VUE Audiotechnik Delivers Crystal Clear Sound for WAMC’s Unique Facility

LOS ANGELESWorld Agape Mission Church (WAMC), established for Korean immigrants by the Reverend John Kim in Los Angeles in 1977, recently installed an extensive loudspeaker array from VUE Audiotechnik to address its acoustical and aesthetic needs. The church’s unique interior layout—a central seating section with a high oval ceiling and left/right sections where flat ceilings are lower—posed a sizable challenge to achieving clear and balanced sound while also preserving its beauty. The exclusive design of the VUE system was the ideal solution.VUE Michael Yoo of Genesis

With the mandate to preserve the ceiling’s dramatic appearance, a compact line array system featuring five VUE al-8 loudspeakers per side, custom painted to match the ceiling color, provides perfect left-to-right and front-to-back coverage. VUE Audiotechnik V6 Systems Engines, fed via AES/EBU at 24-bit/96kHz resolution from the church’s digital console, drive the al-8 line array system.VUE Audiotechnik WAMC Main System

“The arrays and loudspeakers look and sound wonderful,” says Michael Yoo, President of Genesis Technology LLC, the system integrator that executed the sound design and installation at WAMC. “We installed two VUE i-Class i-2×4.5 ultra-compact two-way loudspeakers to handle front fill during large services when WAMC adds additional seating to accommodate more people. The i-2×4.5’s low profile makes it perfect for the application, and its compact size makes it virtually disappear.”VUE Audiotechnik Main Side View

Another challenge the church faced was the incline of its floor, which causes the ceiling to be just nine feet high in the rear of the building. ” John [Kim] is a former professional audio engineer, so it was very important to him that everyone hears the same sounds, no matter where they sit,” explains Yoo. “We chose VUE’s passive a-Class a-8 cabinets in white, which feature the same signature family sound as VUE’s premium h-class products and matches the sonic characteristics of the church’s al-8s. For side fills in the front seating area, we chose white VUE a-10 cabinets to extend the sound and discreet appearance throughout the church.”

Jeff Taylor, VUE Audiotechnik’s VP Americas, personally visited the church to create a custom preset for the system. “John really appreciated Jeff coming out to fine-tune the system,” continues Yoo. “He set up SystemVUE networking on their laptops, which makes their lives much easier.”

SystemVUE connects all VUE DSP-enabled products to a computer via a wireless or wired Ethernet connection. A companion SystemVUE software provides access to a single unit or a network of products and allows for system optimization monitoring of input/output, volume, mute, delay and a broad list of other parameters through an intuitive user interface,

According to Yoo, the final result is unprecedented clarity and output, along with total control that allows the church to achieve high SPL without disturbing anyone in the densely populated neighborhood. “When they would push the previous system to get a uniform level from front to back and left to right, one spot would become very ‘hot’ and caused complaints from tenants in the apartments next door,” he says of WAMC’s old speaker system. “The VUE system has such tight control that when we tuned it with the windows open, the neighbors didn’t mind; with the windows closed, you don’t hear anything outside. Inside the church, the system sounds crystal clear and the vocals just pop. I’m a believer.”

In addition to traditional and contemporary Christian music, choirs, orchestras and even opera performances, WAMC also hosts weddings, conferences and large seminary student gatherings. “The VUE system flawlessly handles this variety of tasks,” adds Yoo. “The most surprising thing is that it sounds even better at higher SPL—that’s the power of the loudspeakers’ Beryllium HF diaphragms. This was our first project using VUE Audiotechnik and we have decided to turn to VUE for future design/build projects. We all just fell in love with the company and its customer support.”

Genesis Technology specializes in custom installation and system integration of audio, video and lighting systems throughout the world. The company serves as one single source of consultation for everything from initial design and acoustic analysis to budgeting, installation and training. Genesis also provides leading sound and lighting equipment as well as audio technicians and engineers with decades of experience for live productions events.

Greenlight Introduces New Pricing For Popular Control System Monitoring Service

greenlight pricing

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – March 2015 – Greenlight Control LLC, developer of the popular cloud based service Greenlight, announced a price reduction per system to just $10 per month.  The new price, down from a launch price of $249 per year, makes an outstanding value even better.


“For anyone who was on the fence about implementing Greenlight service, this is a huge motivation to start doing so now,” said Greenlight CEO Steve Hosterman. “We are giving dealers every incentive to improve their service departments, from an amazing new price to one-on-one assistance while getting started.”


Greenlight has the strongest offering of any control system monitoring service, and is the only product that allows dealers to track AMX, Crestron, and RTI systems all from one web based interface. Greenlight drastically reduces costly onsite service calls by giving the dealer all of the tools necessary to remotely monitor, troubleshoot and repair client systems from anywhere in the world.


“Dealers across the country and around the world rely on Greenlight to keep their customers happy,” said Hosterman. “We listened to dealers who told us they wanted a flat monthly price.  Now rolling Greenlight into a service contract is a no-brainer.”


In addition to the new price, dealers have discrete control over which systems get charged for monitoring.  If a customer decides to not renew a service contract, the dealer can simply “un-license” that system and no longer pay for Greenlight service.  Dealers only pay for exactly what they need.

Clear-Com To Show LQ Intercom Connectivity Solution At NAB 2015

Clear-Com(r) will show its recently released LQ(tm) Series, IP interface devices designed for linking intercom and audio systems across long distances over IP networks at this year’s NAB Booth C5409. With LQ devices, users of 2-wire partyline intercoms and 4-wire intercom and audio systems would be able to cost-effectively and quickly expand their intercom systems with no additional wiring. All the intercom linking is achieved over IP networks: house LAN, WAN or internet. NAB 2015 takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from April 13-16, 2015.

Released in January 2015, the LQ Series is Clear-Com’s newest line of Intercom Connectivity (ICON) solutions.
With either the two-wire (LQ-2W2) or four-wire (LQ-4W2) options, the LQ devices are ideal for intercom users who need to cost-effectively extend their existing intercom systems to single or multiple remote locations over their IT infrastructures, eliminating lengthy audio cable runs. LQ can also interface between different intercom systems routing both call signaling and audio over LAN, WAN or Internet IP connections: 2-wire
partyline with other OEM partyline systems, 2-wire with 4-wire devices, and 4-wire with 4-wire systems.

The LQ-2W2 is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible. A maximum of six LQ Series interfaces can be linked
together to form a managed network.


“Regardless of the type of intercom system being used, the LQ Series makes it easy to extend the system to the other side of a building, across campus, or across the world,” said Stephen Sandford Clear-Com’s Product Manager for Matrix and IP interfaces. “The ability to have an intercom station wherever Internet access is available is invaluable as productions become more complex and the need for reliable distributed communications
becomes more important. The LQ Series addresses this need perfectly.”

These two-channel devices are light-weight, portable and compact. They are easy to deploy and do not take up valuable rack space. Configuration is effortlessly achieved over a browser based user interface. Unique features of the LQ Series devices include Power over Ethernet, auto-nulling capability, multi-cast 1 to 5
routing, auto-discovery and use of the OPUS codec for high quality audio and low bit rate transmission.

The complete Clear-Com line of new and enhanced products will be available for demonstration at NAB 2015
on Booth C5409.
