Prism Sound Announces A Drum Masterclass In Germany

Gavin Harrison

Internationally acclaimed drummer Gavin Harrison is collaborating with Prism Sound to deliver a unique Drum Masterclass, which will take place at KMR Audio in Berlin on Saturday November 1, 2014.

Harrison has worked with a wide range of artists including Iggy Pop, Porcupine Tree, Sam Brown and King Crimson. His Masterclass in Germany will focus on techniques for recording drums in a studio and will give those attending the opportunity to record a track on his Sonor drum kit.

Harrison recently gave a similar Masterclass at Ananda Studios in the UK, which was hugely successful. Prism Sound supported that event by providing audio interface equipment.

Bernard Nocker, Prism Sound’s sales representative in Germany, says: “We were so inspired by it that we decided to host another event in Germany where there is enormous demand for this kind of hands-on workshop. Gavin is an inspiring teacher and during the Masterclass he will focus on the demands of being a session player and how to deliver a great performance, even when under pressure. He will also give each attendee individual feedback so that they can raise their game to another level.”

To ensure the highest possible audio quality throughout the recording chain, Prism Sound will once again deploy a number of its Atlas USB audio interfaces to track the microphones from the drum kit into Logic. Aimed squarely at multitrack recording applications, Atlas benefits from Prism Sound’s 27 year history in digital audio processing and interface design. It incorporates the company’s latest award-winning CleverClox dual hybrid clocking technology and offers recording professionals ultimate quality analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC at sample rates up to 192kHz. In addition to the USB host interface, Atlas also features Prism Sound’s new MDIO interface expansion slot. With eight acclaimed Prism Sound microphone preamplifiers as standard, Atlas is ideally suited to the needs of drummers.

Gavin Harrison’s Prism Sound Drum Masterclass runs for three hours and is not suitable for beginners. Capacity is limited to a maximum of 12 participants and the cost of the session is €150 per person. Anyone wanting to attend should visit:

Shotoku Boosts Studio Capabilities of National Spanish Broadcaster

Versatile Robotic Pan/Tilt System Delivers Big For Major Madrid Media Group

Madrid, Spain – Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a leading international manufacturer of advanced camera support products, has announced the recent installation of a robotically controlled system comprising numerous pan and tilt heads and dual 16-camera control systems at Atresmedia Corporación de Medios de Comunicación, S.A. The Madrid-based Spanish media group, a national broadcaster, maintains a significant presence in the television, radio and cinema industries. The sale was made through Shotoku’s regional reseller Datos Media.

After in-depth testing and on-site demonstrations, the Shotoku systems — seven TG-18 robotic pan and tilt heads and two 16-camera TR-T control systems — were selected by Atresmedia Corporación as key pieces of its re-launched and refurbished studio to replace its older gear.

“Since the first test, we were satisfied with the overall capability of Shotoku’s system, both operationally and technically,” says Fernando García del Rey, Head of Studio Operations, Atresmedia. “The system works well, operators find it easy to use, and the support we get from Shotoku, with Datos Media, has been excellent.”

According to James Eddershaw, Shotoku sales director, Atresmedia is a brand new client and the first order with Shotoku’s newly appointed agent in the region, Datos Media, signaling a major win for the company. “I am delighted to be working with Atresmedia – one of Spain’s leading national broadcasters with a long history of experience in robotic camera systems,” says Eddershaw. “To be selected by them after a detailed evaluation, is praise indeed for our systems.”
The Datos team worked very closely with the Atresmedia crew during installation and provided full training on-site once the system was integrated. Now, the station is live and on-air every day.

“We were extremely pleased to be able to supply a large Shotoku system to Atresmedia, especially so soon after partnering with Shotoku in Spain,” says Tomas Nielsen, managing director, Datos Media. “Like Atresmedia, we were happy with the way the project went, with very smooth integration into the existing studio environment and all completed on time.”

The TG-18 has a 56kg payload capacity making it ideal for any ENG camera/lens combinations in typical studio configurations including the usual accessories such as viewfinder, hand controls and teleprompter/preview monitor. The TG-18 offers exceptional pan and tilt control, allowing complete freedom for on-air adjustments from the control systems. The head combines all the features expected of a high performance remote pan and tilt head (i.e. high accuracy, smooth movement, silent operation and high payload) with a full manual override capability.

The completely configurable screen layouts of the TR-T system supports 16 cameras, capable of being controlled by a single operator position, and displayed in any configuration to suit the particular requirements of the program. The TR-T panel style uses multicolored illuminated keys to communicate system status and control settings, with the same high precision joystick for ultra-smooth, on-air control that has become the trademark of a Shotoku system.

dB Technologies introduces new Theater Series stage monitors

DVX DM12 TH front

Italian loudspeaker manufacturer dB Technologies presents their new high performance TH theater series stage monitors. The initial introduction include the DVX-DM12 TH and DVX-DM15 TH active two-way stage monitors. High output – 136 dB max SPL. Featuring either 12” or 15” neodymium woofers with 4” voice coil coupled with 1.4” exit HF neo compression driver with 2.5” voice coil. The cabinets feature rotatable HF driver (for left or right configuration), double EQ preset, input and output panels on either side and universal switch mode power supply. Frequency response on the DVX-DM12 TH is 63Hz-16 kHz and on the DVX-DM15 TH is 55Hz-16 kHz (+/-6 dB).
Let’s take a closer look:
A unique feature of the TH series monitors is the ability to rotate the front panel to configure the monitor with the horn on the right or on the left for stage positioning and stereo configuration purposes. In addition, the 90×40 horn can be rotated for proper pattern coverage.
Utilizing the latest in amplifier technology from dB Technologies, the TH series incorporates a two-way Digipro G2 amplifier which splits the power delivering 750-watts RMS to the low frequency section and 375-watts RMS to the high frequency section. Conceived to operate in full-range mode, thanks to the SMPS (Switched-Mode Power Supplies) and PFC (Power Factor Correction) technologies assure operation with supply voltages between 100 Vac and 240 Vac, ensuring the same performance even with floating and non-stabilized power supply.
The linear response and accurate frequency response allow the TH series to be used on stages large or small, wherever high levels of performance are required. A selector located on the input panel allows to choose between two preset equalizations – EQ FLAT and TH EQ.
The monitor cabinets are constructed of heavy-duty 15-mm multi-layer birch, painted with a black polyurea for ruggedness and roadworthiness. All inputs (Powercon and XLR input) are located at one end with the links (Powercon and XLR output) at the opposite end for ease of pass-through connectivity. The input section also includes LED indicators monitoring the internal limiter circuit, amplifier status, power voltage, input sensitivity and audio signal presence. Two recessed side handles facilitate transport.

Clay Paky B-EYE K10s Make Red Rocks Debut with STS9 Concert and Join Band’s Fall Touring Rig

BNSTS920140906JP_1200px_004Lighting designer Saxton Waller selected 22 Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K10 LED-based moving lights controlled by a grandMA2 with NPU for two sold-out STS9 concerts at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, the lead up to the band’s cross-country fall tour. The fixtures and console were provided by Brown Note Productions, Inc. in Thornton, Colorado. A.C.T Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky and MA products in North America.

The instrumental band STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9), which plays self-described post-rock dance music, is one of the nation’s top-grossing tour acts with a heavy presence in the festival circuit. Their dates at Red Rocks, September 5 and 6, preceded the start of their first tour in nearly a year. The tour will play venues in the Midwest and East, including Chicago, New York, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

Brown Note Productions, Inc. is a full-service audio, lighting and video production company specializing in touring, festivals and special events. It won the 2013 Parnelli Award for “Hometown Hero Lighting Company of the Year” and is nominated for the same award again this year.

“STS9 is our flagship client: We’ve been working with the band for the 10 years we’ve been in business,” says CEO Sara B. Knutson, who is partnered with her husband, Ryan, in Brown Note Productions. “STS9 has played Red Rocks, named the best concert venue in the country, a number of times before. And we do 30-35 shows there annually with clients, so it’s a very familiar venue. The B-EYE K10s made their Red Rocks debut with STS9, then will accompany the band on their six-week tour.”

Brown Note Productions is a fan of Clay Paky products with more than 60 Sharpys and 16 Sharpy Washes in their inventory. Now, 22 B-EYE K10s have joined the product roster.

“We expect the K10s to be accepted by all the major tours,” says Knutson; the fixtures were rented previously by String Cheese Incident for their show at Electric Forest. “We also look for the K10s to bring in new clients who are excited by the hype and what the lights can do. Clay Paky always puts out amazing products – look at Sharpy and how it has revolutionized the industry. Their products are solid and in-demand – we can’t keep them in stock!”

Brown Note Productions has a long history with MA consoles, too. “We started with one many years ago and have really ramped up our inventory so we now carry two grandMA2s, a grandMA2 light, an NPU, a command wing and we still have a grandMA1. They are the go-to desk for any major tour; they’re on every rider and are specked for all the big national festivals.”

Saxton Waller, who heads Denver-based Roygbiv Lighting & Show Design, has been the lighting designer for STS9 for 14 years. He saw Clay Paky B-EYE K20s at a recent Phish concert and when a sample K10 became available he got a chance to “play with it” for a day and see if the fixture would fit into STS9′s new touring rig.

“I used 22 K10s for Red Rocks, and we’re touring with 20,” he says.
“I’m using the K10s any way I can: every function they have, I use – wash mode for big-stage looks, beaming down without opening the prisms for small beam effects, rotating them and opening and closing the prisms for custom effects.” At Red Rocks and on tour STS9 has opted not to use video elements in their shows so lighting design and effects play a bigger role than ever.

At Red Rocks Waller placed one K10 behind each of the five band members and tilted the fixtures forward about 25º “to get them under the band and all the way back to the rocks,” he explains. The remaining 17 K10s were mounted in the truss. The fixtures will be deployed in a similar way for the touring rig.

Waller built custom macros for the K10s that extend creative flexibility with color. “I’ve written probably 30 custom chases with colors attached. So in a three-spoke fan each spoke stays the same color all the way around, like a gobo wheel spinning. I can fire them of in any combination,” he explains.

He attached ghost protocol presets to his custom chases to facilitate writing the macros assigning the K10 color combinations. “Each chase can have 60-80 steps, so I only have to write it once, not each time I have a different color combination.”

Waller has also invented a way to see each beam of the K10s in MA 3D setting up each cell as an individual moving light. “It’s been priceless for me to see the beam structure in the studio without setting up the entire rig,” he says.

“Brown Note is a great company and has always been a great partner of ours,” says A.C.T Lighting Vice President of Sales, Brian Dowd. “They’re always excited about trying the latest and greatest equipment and they’re able to do so in a way that really showcases the gear.”

Chris Ruppel from Brown Note Productions gets kudos from Waller for “making it all happen” with K10 and grandMA2 programming.

SSL Live Bids Farewell to Corey Hart

“The depth of field was amazing; I was really impressed by the spaciousness of it”

MONTREAL Corey Hart hung up his sunglasses for good at an emotional sold-out farewell concert for 13,500 hometown fans at Montreal’s Bell Centre, supported by an SSL Live console at front of house. A 1980s phenom, Hart has had nine consecutive Top 40 hits, with “Sunglasses at Night” being his most recognizable. Outfitted with sound services by Solotech in Canada, it was another local Montreal hero, Denis Savage, who mixed the show and the week-long rehearsal.

Denis Savage with SSL LiveFor Hart’s Farewell concert, the band consisted of two guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, percussion, saxophone and backing vocals, plus a few guests. Since Hart hadn’t performed live in almost a decade, the group spent a week in rehearsals to guarantee he gave audiences the show of a lifetime. “I recorded the rehearsals in multi-track, so I had two Pro Tools® rigs,” explains Savage, a long-time SSL user who has been Celine Dion’s FOH and studio engineer for the past 28 years. “One was a virtual playback machine and the other was recording straight from the preamps on stage.”

The extra practice also provided Savage with plenty of time to familiarise himself with the new SSL Live console. He found the integration of multi-track playback of live performances a great help in quickly programming the console. “For me, the way they set up the virtual sound check so that you can monitor through your recorder all the time and then just play back the sound while you’re programming is great,” he adds. “The way it’s set up is really amazing and effortless. I recorded the entire rehearsal through Pro Tools so I could stop, play back and program quickly while the band was on break, which was a big thing for me.”

Savage was initially drawn to SSL Live’s large, centre touch screen. “You’d think you need to use the centre screen all the time, but then you realize there’s a smaller one with colour-coded rotary knobs around it, and that’s where everything is happening,” he explains. “I was really able to increase my production speed once I understood that while I do want to see things on the big screen, I should use the smaller one to go through my menu, EQs, auxiliaries and so on. Once I got the hang of the process, my output was super fast.”
By the end of rehearsals, Savage had learned the full capabilities of SSL Live’s Focus Channel area located on the right-hand side of the console. “The screen was very visual for me to see where things were and how things were set up, but I was using the encoders way more,” he explains. “Initially, it looks kind of complicated. In fact, when I first saw it I was like, ‘Wow, this is going to be difficult just to set up.’ But, once I got my initial setup taken care of, I was able to better understand how things work. It flows nicely, and the depth of field was amazing. I couldn’t believe it. I was really impressed by the spaciousness of the console. It’s fun to work on and it sounds really good. I really like that console.”

Savage additionally notes that the classic SSL sonic signature combined with the modern control surface of the SSL Live console provide him with the perfect solution to get a great mix. “The sound of the SSL Live is very sweet; the lows are very deep and tight and I didn’t have to fight to blend and mix,” he says. “I also didn’t need to add too much EQ as the mix just falls into place quickly. When you mix on a good console, the little things add up to make a great sound. That’s exactly the feeling I got. Live is a fun console, too. Its compact size ensured that I wasn’t all over the place. It was like driving a sports car; I had access to everything quickly. I loved it.”

The Corey Hart Farewell Concert wasn’t the first time Savage got his hands on an SSL console. He also mixes on an SSL Duality at Studio Piccolo, his commercial studio in Montreal, and started using the SSL MT Plus console over a decade ago for Dion’s initial five-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Today, Savage notes that SSL’s first true live sound console is an even better live solution for him as it incorporates features that improve his previous workflow.

“I did 737 shows at the Colosseum on the MT Plus and I never had a crash in five years, never had a single problem, it was flawless,” he says “Since SSL’s design team is so great, they are always listening to their customers and modifying their solutions to fit our needs. Now, the SSL Live gives me several options that I didn’t have with the MT Plus. I can use channels however I want. I can unfold them, offset them and then refold them. Basically, everything that was added to SSL’s other consoles over the years has now been incorporated into the Live console.”
