GC Pro Helps DCP Productions Take Commercials On The Road

DCP_MobileRig

— Boutique Baltimore commercial production house created a mobile production rig that, like their six-suite studio, was built with both equipment and expertise from GC Pro —

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, September 22, 2014 — Don Cherel, the Founder and Director/Producer with DCP Productions, created the iconic Motorcycle Money Man for commercial client GEICO, along with spots for Planet Fitness, the Washington Nationals MLB team and the Washington Capitals NHL team. Now DCP Productions, like their mobile GEICO creation, itself is ready to go on the road, with a flypack rig that will let it shoot, record, edit and mix on location, vastly increasing the boutique shop’s productivity while giving it access to new sights, sounds and talent. And that road rig, like DCP Productions’ six-room video and audio production facility in Baltimore, was sourced with a combination of technology and expertise provided by Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users.

Eight-year-old DCP Productions’ business model is predicated on Cherel’s “concept to completion” notion, which enables clients to work with one entity for concept creation; original music creation; and pre-, field- and post-production. “By simply eliminating the layers of multiple companies in the advertising development process, DCP is able to create content and transform it into quality advertising media much less expensively and faster than traditional ad agencies,” Cherel explains. “That savings is passed on to the client.”

The new mobile rig, which tackles its first official project in July for the next GEICO campaign, is made up of two 12-space racks that hold gear including a Universal Audio® Apollo high-resolution interface, an Avid Pro Tools system with Thunderbolt connectivity, an Avid MC Mix controller, an API 550 EQ, Crane Song Falcon compressor and two Rupert Neve Designs 542 tape emulators.

All of this equipment was sourced through GC Pro Account Manager Mitch Shaivitz at GC Pro’s Baltimore-area office. The mobile rig’s make-up grew from Shaivitz’s conversations with Cherel about what the producer/director wanted to accomplish. “I called up Mitch and said, here’s what I want to do,’ and he came back with equipment suggestions that matched our workflow at the studio,” Cherel explains. “This mix of equipment and systems really make the mobile rig an extension of the studio — our workflow remains the same on the road and in the studio, so the end product is totally consistent.”

“Every product choice was well thought-out,” says Cherel. “With the exception of cameras and lenses, virtually every piece of equipment we have, in the studio and on the road, came through GC Pro. “They have the products and the expertise. But mostly, they get what we’re trying to do.”

CRAS and HARMAN’s JBL Professional M2 Master Reference Monitors Serve Up A Feast for the Ears At 2014 PotLuckCon Audio Conference

At PotLuckCon: Peter Chaikin of JBL (left) and Robert Brock of CRAS (right) in the CRAS state-of-the-art mobile broadcast truck featuring JBL LSR6300 Series studio monitors and Studer Vista 5.

TUCSON, Arizona — Calling itself “the ultimate weekend of audio recording geekery,” the 2014 PotLuckCon Audio Conference brought recording industry professionals together for a healthy serving of workshops, seminars, recording sessions and demos from the best and brightest in the pro audio industry. A key participant was the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences (CRAS), which hosted a demo room featuring HARMAN JBL’s flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor loudspeakers. The CRAS mobile broadcast unit was also on hand, which rolled in equipped with JBL LSR6325P studio monitors and a Studer Vista 5 digital mixing console.

CRAS is a technical school providing instruction in audio recording, engineering and production. Its two locations in Tempe and Gilbert, Arizona teach students the skills they need to start their career in the day they graduate.

The JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor is a 2-way powered large-format loudspeaker designed to set new standards for sonic accuracy and dynamic range in professional monitoring environments. It incorporates JBL’s newly developed D2 dual-diaphragm, dual-voice-coil compression driver, a Differential Drive™ dual-voice-coil woofer and JBL’s proprietary Image Control Waveguide™ to deliver exceptional studio monitor performance.

JBL’s LSR6325Pbi-amplified compact studio monitor provide exceptional performance in applications where accuracy is a CRAS Digital Department Director Robert Brock first became interested in the M2 when visiting JBL’s Northridge, California facility. “I was stunned at the level of accuracy and detail the M2 delivered,” he said.

When Brock subsequently began planning the CRAS exhibit at PotLuckCon, he realized the professionals at the convention would be the perfect audience for the M2. “PotLuckCon draws exactly the kind of people who, like our students, need to hear this loudspeaker.”

One of the highlights of PotLuckCon is the Casita Gear Crawl, in which the exhibit rooms are transformed into mini-studios. CRAS’s Casita featured a pair of M2 monitors. “For most of the people who came to our room it was the first time they’d heard the M2 and it was a big hit,” Brock commented. “It’s really unlike anything else out there for its ability to faithfully reproduce everything that’s on the original recording with absolutely uncompromised dynamics and frequency extension. It’s incredibly revealing without ever sounding clinical or harsh and its tonal balance and spatiality remain intact over a wide listening area.”

Also at PotLuckCon, Andrew Scheps, producer, mix engineer and principal of Tonequake Records, delivered a poignant presentation titled “Lost In Translation,” which examined the effect of low-resolution digital delivery on the emotional impact of recorded music. Sponsored by the Recording Academy® Producers and Engineers Wing®, and with JBL M2 Master Reference Monitors as the playback system, the crowd experienced Scheps’ dramatic A/B comparison of high and low-resolution file formats.

Hal Leonard Publishes Alan Parsons’ Art & Science of Sound Recording

Alan Parsons and Julian Colbeck to present ASSR, The Book based on the award-winning DVD set at the 137th AES in Los Angeles

Montclair, NJ (September 24, 2014) – Alan Parsons’ Art & Science of Sound Recording: The Book, is a complete rewrite and reappraisal of the award-winning video series. Parsons takes his approach to sound recording to the next level as the book provides ample space to present more technical background information, more detailed diagrams, and more in-depth discussion on each of the twenty-four topics, from “A Brief History of Recording “ to the now-classic “Dealing with Disasters.”

AlanParsons_cover

Written with the DVD’s co-producer, musician, and author Julian Colbeck, ASSR: The Book offers readers a classic “big picture” view of modern recording technology in conjunction with an almost encyclopedic list of specific techniques, processes, and equipment. The Book has a logical flow of chapters, looking at how sound is created and how it behaves before moving on to the different processes of manipulating sound recordings such as EQ, reverb, delays, compression; covering how to work and record with live musicians as well as the art and science that go into the mixing process.

“With the videos we strove to keep you visually and aurally entertained. Now, you can be reading this at home, or in a busy Starbucks, or on a plane… you can read one page at a sitting or one chapter, or just dive in here and there using the index or the glossary,” said Parsons.

For all its heft and authority – authored by a man trained at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios in the 1970s – ASSR: The Book is also written in plain English and is packed with priceless anecdotes from Alan Parsons’ own career working with the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and countless others. Not just informative and packed with colorful pictures, but also highly entertaining and inspirational, ASSR: The Book is the perfect platform on which to build expertise in the art and science of sound recording.

Alan Parsons and Julian Colbeck will present ASSR, The Book at AES in Los Angeles with a book signing on October 10, 2014 at 12 pm in the Hal Leonard booth #1141.

About the authors
Alan Parsons’ recording career got off to a great start with the Beatles when he served as their assistant engineer on Let It Be and Abbey Road. With an illustrious engineering career that included The Dark Side of the Moon, Parsons went on to become one of the most sought-after producer/engineers of the seventies and eighties, scoring No. 1 hits with multiple artists. In 1976, he formed the Alan Parsons Project, enjoying multiplatinum success with hits such as “Eye in the Sky”, “Time”, and “Games People Play”. Parsons remains an active recording artist and producer.

Julian Colbeck was a professional keyboardist for over twenty-five years, working with Yes/ABWH, Steve Hackett, John Miles, and his own group, Charlie. He has also authored a dozen books on music and music technology, including the groundbreaking Keyfax series, and he has written and produced numerous instructional DVDs on recording, live sound, and synthesizer technology. CEO of Keyfax NewMedia since 1994, Colbeck has most recently been on active duty with the creative and advocacy platform Musicians Guild.

New Birthplace of Country Music Museum Explores Historic 1927 Bristol Sessions with Audio and Video Systems from Electrosonic

Straddling the Virginia and Tennessee state lines, the town of Bristol just opened the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, featuring audio and video systems provided by Electrosonic.

The new museum celebrates the historic 1927 Bristol Sessions, which are considered the origin of modern country music. Held by the Victor Talking Machine Company in a local hat warehouse, the sessions were made possible by the advent of portable audio recording technology. Nineteen performers traveled to what was then the largest urban area in the Appalachians to raise their voices in song; the sessions marked the commercial debuts of the legendary Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter family.

The 24,000-square foot Birthplace of Country Music Museum uses multiple theater experiences, interactives and artifact displays, to tell the story of the Bristol Sessions and their far-reaching influence. The museum is in a vintage building that formerly housed a truck dealership; over a period of years, it was gutted and retrofitted to be true to the era of the Bristol Sessions.

Electrosonic was brought on board the project in its early stages by Washington, D.C.-based Hillmann & Carr, which produced the museum’s video content and handled interactive programming. Electrosonic’s Design Consulting team worked with Joseph Nicholson of studioMUSarx in Philadelphia on the initial exhibit design. Electrosonic’s Orlando office provided the subsequent AV systems and support for the facility.

“There were a number of challenges to working in a historically significant building,” says Electrosonic project manager Tim Wilson, including many hard surfaces to deal with acoustically and limited options for mounting and positioning equipment and running cable. “Our site supervisor, Dave Boudreau, did a fantastic job of making everything fit and work.”

Visitors to the museum enjoy five theaters, four of which feature equipment from Electrosonic. The largest of them, the Orientation Theater, has a holding area styled like a train depot. Visitors hear associated sound effects and historic music clips through Acoustic Enhancement activated sound panels built into the depot walls while they wait to gain admittance to the theater; when they hear a train’s air brakes, the theater doors open and they take a seat to watch the video, “Bound to Bristol,” about the musical heritage of the Bristol Sessions. The Orientation Theater is outfitted with an InFocus projector, Renkus-Heinz speakers, Bag End subwoofers and activated sound panels by Acoustic Enhancement. A pair of NEC monitors above the walkways provides closed captioning.

The small Greasy Strings Theater displays a looped video exploring the philosophy and musical techniques behind the sessions. It has a BenQ projector and Innovox and Tannoy speakers. The Chapel has a few church pews where visitors can rest and watch a video about local gospel groups and how faith has shaped music. It has a BenQ projector, Tannoy speakers and four Acoustic Enhancement activated sound panels built into the pews. The Orientation Theater, Greasy Strings and the Chapel all have Screen Goo projection surfaces on their walls. Their video sources are Alcorn McBride DVM8500 digital video machines.

A stop at the Immersion Theater comes later in the tour. Its video focuses on making visitors part of the unbroken circle of country music and includes clips of many different artists performing “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” – from Jimmie Rodgers to Lynyrd Skynyrd. This theater has a custom Da-Lite perforated, curved screen, three blended BenQ projectors, a Dataton WATCHOUT video source, Tannoy speakers and Bag End subs – and room to dance. The walls are lined with murals showing crowds of appreciative country music fans at the annual Rhythm & Roots Reunion festival in Bristol.

Throughout the museum, a number of interactives equipped with 32-inch ELO touch screens engage visitors in various aspects of the Bristol Sessions and country music heritage. Interactives dubbed “Way Back Machines” enable visitors to scroll through photographs showing Bristol over the years; four “Mixing Stations” allow them to change the mix on assorted tracks from the sessions. Two “Bristol Remastered” interactives, with Brown Innovations focused beam speakers, showcase a number of session tunes covered by contemporary artists. An interactive recording booth invites visitors to sing along in their own version of the famous Bristol Sessions, and “Send a Postcard” lets them choose a digital postcard design to email to family and friends.

Bristol-born Tennessee Ernie Ford gets a video kiosk driven by an Alcorn McBride DVM8500 with overhead speakers. The “Rediscovered/Reinvented” video, displayed on a 46-inch monitor, shows how movies and media integrate country music today. It is also fed by an Alcorn McBride digital video machine.

The museum has provided space for a working internal radio station, too. Visitors can look through picture windows to the audio booth, which features a vintage radio control room and studio equipped with a 1940s Raytheon console from a Bristol radio station that has been retrofitted to convert analog to digital signals. The FCC has granted a low power FM license, and the studio will soon begin broadcasting WBCM, Birthplace of Country Music Radio. Electrosonic provided the interactive outside the windows where visitors can tune into four pre-recorded radio shows if the radio station is not broadcasting. Audio playback is provided by a QSC Q-Sys system.

Electrosonic built three control rooms on the second floor of the museum, which are connected with a fiber network. Empty racks have been provided to accommodate future expansion in the already limited space. Museum staff maintains all of the audio and video equipment.

“Everything looks very, very good and sounds excellent,” says Wilson. “The Birthplace of Country Music is a very cool place to visit, and the people there are wonderful. They really believe in the product and have done a great job showing the full spectrum of country music from the 1927 sessions to today.”

Dr. Jessica Turner, the museum’s director and head curator, concluded, “It was important to us, as a music museum, to have the highest quality sound and media experiences. This is exactly what the group from Electrosonic delivered. I was impressed that the whole team worked with us to troubleshoot problems to find innovative solutions, often going above and beyond to provide expertise and professionalism. I was sad when the installation was complete and we would no longer be working together.”

About Electrosonic
