One Year Later, API 1608 is the Perfect Foundation for the Blackbird Academy

BlackbirdAcademy_1stAnnivNASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – DECEMBER 2014: The API 1608 analog console at the center of The Blackbird Academy’s thirty-seat classroom has scarcely been idle since the school opened its doors in 2013. The Blackbird Academy, an extension of the top-flight, multi-room Blackbird Studio in Nashville, is owned and operated by recording engineer John McBride and his wife, country music superstar, Martina McBride. Students in the program learn the basics of pro audio sound quality and signal flow using the classroom’s 1608, and then apply that knowledge in Blackbird Studio’s control rooms, which include a 32-channel API 1608 and two large-format API Legacy Plus consoles.

“The API 1608 sounds great, and serves as the perfect foundation for our students to build from,” said Kevin Becka, instructor and co-director of the academy. “Before arriving at Blackbird, most of our students got into audio using their own computers with inexpensive interfaces. They’re shocked at how the act of simply plugging in an instrument to the clean signal path and transformers of the 1608 can make it sound. We’ve come to call the effect, ‘API Love’. The construction of the 1608 is well thought-out and executed – everything about it is solid.”

The classroom is designed to give students a co-pilot’s view of everything the instructor is doing. Video cameras mounted above the 1608, and display the view on 65-inch screens. Each student uses an academy-issued iPad with custom-created apps, providing descriptions of every aspect of the studio, and how those aspects connect with gear in Blackbird’s dedicated control rooms.

Outside the classroom, students disperse into the control rooms of Blackbird Studio for smaller classes, and execute independent projects. “These are the very same control rooms that are regularly attended by some of the biggest names in the music industry,” said Becka. “It’s a unique experience for the students to go into those rooms and know that yesterday, Tim McGraw or Keith Urban were in the same room. Learning signal flow on the classroom’s API 1608 transfers directly to Blackbird’s two API Legacy Plus consoles.”

The staff at The Blackbird Academy is looking forward to a second year, and continued success, behind the API 1608.

Ashly Processors and Amplifiers Breathe New Life into Bourbon Square Casino

Bourbon_Square_Casino_1SPARKS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 2014: Formerly called The Silver Club, Bourbon Square Casino recently reopened in the Reno-Sparks area of Nevada. In addition to a fresh New Orleans theme, Bourbon Square now sports a new eight-zone sound reinforcement system centered on an Ashly ne8800 processor and four two-channel ne800 70-volt amplifiers. Critically, the system also features iPad wireless remote control via the free Ashly Remote App, which allows the Bourbon Square staff – who are experts on gaming but not necessarily pro audio – to control the system intuitively.

“There was a four year span between the closing of The Silver Club and its rebirth as Bourbon Square,” explained Mike Pristow, general manager at Vision Control Associates, the firm that designed and installed the casino’s new sound system. “They were able to blow the cobwebs off the old sound system and power it up, but it sounded horrible. It was an old design with old equipment, and a lot of the loudspeakers were blown. We suggested a new multi-zone system using Ashly processing and amplifiers together with SoundTube loudspeakers. In addition to standard audio playback, they wanted to allow pages and prerecorded message delivery from their phone system with appropriate ducking.”

Five of the zones are strategically located throughout the game floor, one covers the restaurant, and the two remaining zones cover the phones and the message unit using the DSP’s ducking feature in the event of an overhead page or automated advertising through their message repeater. Inputs to the system include two DMX boxes, two DirecTV signals, a digital signage unit, video projector output, and two microphones for special events or announcements. A single eight-by-eight Ashly ne8800 Protea™ DSP Network System Processor handles all routing logic, input equalization, and loudspeaker processing. Its output feeds four dual-channel Ashly ne800 70V Network Amplifiers, which power a collection of eight-inch SoundTube CM82-EZs-II loudspeakers and three-inch SoundTube SM31-EZ loudspeakers.

“The staff have a lot more to think about than complicated sound system controls,” said Pristow. “We used Ashly’s free iPad App to give them custom control of input sources and volumes, as well as a collection of appropriate presets. It was my first time programming Ashly’s iPad app, and it went smoothly.”

“Like a lot of installations, providing a cost-effective, high-performance system with intuitive user control was paramount,” said Randy Premetz, vice president of design and engineering with Vision Control Associates. “Ashly makes competitively-priced equipment that is flexible, powerful, and reliable – exactly the sort of thing that is needed for a job like Bourbon Square. And the company’s phenomenal support guarantees a smooth installation as they always deal with our problems and questions at a time scale measured in minutes. It’s been my experience that Ashly treats all integrators with respect, no matter the size – it’s in their DNA.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality & high performance signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets. The 40-year old company is headquartered in Webster, New York U.S.A.

Danley DBH-218 Sub Rocks the New Student Building at Dogwood Church

Dogwood_Church_1TYRONE, GEORGIA – DECEMBER 2014: Thoroughly modern in its approach and attitude, Dogwood Church pays special attention to the youngest members of its congregation. That dedication was exemplified by the construction of a new four hundred-seat youth multipurpose building on Dogwood Church’s seventy-acre campus in Tyrone, Georgia. The church sought out Chicago-based Advanced Systems & Technologies (AST) to help maximize the impact of the multipurpose building’s audio, video, and lighting systems on a limited budget. AST obliged with a complete AVL system design that rests squarely on the deep fundamentals of a Danley Sound Labs DBH-218 subwoofer. The young congregants at Dogwood Church now experience a high-energy, visceral experience that grabs them – almost literally – at every level.

“Dogwood Church has a lot going on,” said Terry McCarthy, partner and systems specialist with AST. “They’re a very contemporary church with a focus on students and families, and their worship style is appropriately contemporary and high-tech. We began working with them early in the process and thus had a major role in shaping the acoustics and electrical specifications. That was important because the church had a lot of expectations but a limited budget with which to meet them. We listened carefully to their needs and helped them prioritize so that they would have the very best system for the money.”

Dogwood_Church_InteriorHigh on the priority list was the kind of deep bass that takes your breath away and reframes music as a physical experience. “No doubt, the young people connect with low end,” said McCarthy. “We had to give them plenty of bass! The Danley DBH-218 delivers exceptional low-end content at any price, but it’s very affordable.” The DBH-218 is legendary acoustician Tom Danley’s take on conventional subwoofer design. The payoff for its larger footprint is awesomely punchy, impactful bass, and the single DBH-218 covers Dogwood Church’s new student room beautifully. AST built a custom enclosure under the stage for the DBH-218, which allows for the maximum impact from the subwoofer. Efficiently powered by a QSC-PLD-4.5 series amplifier the DBH-218 receives an incredible 4200 watts of continuous power (7500 watts peak).

The rest of the system is comprised of self-powered stereo RCF HD 10a line arrays, a Behringer X32 digital console and snake system, Behringer personal mixers, and Juice Goose power sequencing. AST also designed a comprehensive Perdue Acoustics sound control system to minimize reflections and to even out the room’s frequency response. The facility also has two high-quality air walls allowing the room to subdivide for multiple simultaneous smaller events. AST installed three control point locations, which are networked for ease of access, quick changes and minimal set-up time. They also designed and installed a comprehensive HD/SDI Video System with two 7500-lumen Panasonic video projectors firing on a pair of 193-inch Da-Lite screens that flank the stage. In addition, there are six HD camera locations, two – 55-inch HD video monitors for stage view, and a 16 x 16-channel distribution system that sends high-quality video to the foyer TVs and throughout the facility. McCarthy also designed a sixty circuit comprehensive stage lighting system which includes: seven Lighting Bar locations, two Martin Rush movers, sixteen Blizzard RokBox™ LEDs and twelve Leviton 575-watt spot fixtures. The lighting system also boasts a full dimming compliment with total control of all the house lighting fixtures featuring Doug Fleenor and Lightronics. This coupled with a black wall and ceiling motif give Dogwood Church’s new student building the look and feel of a modern theater or live music venue.

“The folks at Dogwood Church couldn’t be happier,” said McCarthy. “We came in on budget and gave them a system that will meet all of their technical needs and more. And with the Danley DBH-218 installed, it’s pure Rock ‘n Roll!”

2015 NAMM Show Product Preview
NUGEN Audio

At the 2015 NAMM Show in cooperation with Music Marketing (booth 6242, hall A), NUGEN Audio will introduce MasterCheck, the first modern loudness tool for the music industry, as well as a significant update of Visualizer, the company’s industry-leading audio analysis tool. For more than a decade, NUGEN Audio has been serving the needs of music producers in over 50 countries, from the hobbyist to some of the biggest Grammy award-winning names in the industry.

MasterCheck
MasterCheck is the first music-industry-specific audio plug-in designed to facilitate mix and mastering for the modern world of loudness normalized playout. iTunes(R), Spotify(R), and DAB Radio all now use loudness normalization, and MasterCheck reveals how the consumer will hear audio on these and other music platforms by using internationally recognized loudness, dynamics, and true-peak standards. Ideal for every aspect of music production including recording, mixing, mastering, compilation, archive, and restoration, MasterCheck can also be used for producing podcasts at optimal loudness levels for dialog clarity within the listener environment. With MasterCheck, audio engineers can employ a single plug-in to apply loudness matching and dynamic content analysis, using techniques such as peak-to-loudness ratio (PLR) to compare multiple sources. The advanced side-chain loudness matching can also be used to audition signal paths, without the “improvement” of increased loudness, to understand precisely how various effects, such as compression, can change the sound with no influence from the loudness enhancement.

KAZT-TV Upgrades to HD Production in Two Cities with Broadcast Pix

Billerica, Massachusetts – KAZT-TV, an independent station serving Arizona’s Phoenix/Prescott market (DMA #11), produces The Morning Scramble, a unique live morning show that produces the first 30 minutes from its Phoenix studio and the last 30 minutes from its Prescott location. In October, the station upgraded both of its facilities to HD production, and anchored both control rooms with Broadcast Pix™ Granite™ X integrated production switchers.

While KAZT had upgraded its master control to HD in 2008, its studios were still producing programming in SD. While planning a move to HD production, station personnel discovered Broadcast Pix at the NAB Show. “The time was right to go KAZT Granite UseHD,” said Brian Cisek, production manager, “but we had not found the KAZT Granite Useright mix of equipment to do it in an economical way with all the bells and whistles we wanted.”

Phil Hammon, chief engineer, handled the integration of the new equipment and the station’s concurrent move to a file-based workflow. He determined that Granite “just seemed to be a lot more ‘live TV’ friendly” than competing systems. “There’s a lot I like about the Broadcast Pix in general,” he added. “From an engineering perspective, redundancy is extremely important – and the Broadcast Pix is one of the better built systems on the market, from its dual power supplies to its fail safe mode.”

Each control room was rebuilt and re-cabled in about 10 days – Phoenix was completed in mid-October and Prescott two weeks later. (During installation, The Morning Scramble was produced in only one city.) For the HD upgrade, the station purchased the same equipment for both control rooms. The Broadcast Pix systems were purchased through BKW, Inc., a value added reseller based in Tempe, Ariz. Additional upgrades included new JVC ProHD studio cameras, AJA Ki Pro record decks, 40-inch NEC LCD monitors for the control room video walls. The station is owned by Londen Media Group, LLC.

Designed for large-scale productions, Granite X supports 22 inputs and seven channels of files, and can integrate cloud-based content from Skype, Twitter, and other online sources during a live production. The Granites replaced an aging Ross analog switcher in Prescott and a Ross digital switcher in Phoenix. “File sharing at some point became a little difficult,” Cisek recalled. “Now, everything is consistent – they almost work as one studio. It’s just seamless.”

Using the built-in Watch Folders content management system, KAZT can transfer media from edit suites and other sources directly to the Granite before or during a production. “It’s really easy the way it just shows up and you just pull it into your show,” Cisek explained.

Fluent-View, Granite’s built-in customizable multi-view, was one of the system’s biggest selling points for the KAZT production team. The station produces The Morning Scramble and a weekly political program in Phoenix, and each series has a unique multi-view setup that can be tailored for individual technical directors. “That was the ‘wow’ factor,” Cisek said. “The flexibility of that was just awesome.”

KAZT has retired its aging Deko systems and now uses the Granite’s built-in Inscriber CG. Cisek said it delivers clean graphics and allows them to easily make changes during productions. The built-in clip store has also streamlined roll-ins, and Broadcast Pix’s file-based macros system, Fluent Macros, has simplified satellite interviews. TDs can set the screen for two-box and three-box displays with preselected backgrounds with just one button push.

The station welcomes outside production clients, but with SD studios, too many potential clients were going elsewhere. Now, Cisek said the station is starting to build a client base. “We knew that there was revenue to be made with our HD studio,” he said.

Hammon and Cisek are very happy with KAZT’s HD upgrade, particularly the Granites. “In a lot of ways, we’ve only cracked the surface of what the system can do – and that represents what maxed out our old system,” Cisek added. “Overall, we really enjoy the system. It’s going to give us a lot more flexibility.”
