Grace Immanuel Upgrades with Allen & Heath dLive

E-mail Print PDF

Dan Kreider and Will Morris at the dLive S7000.JUPITER, FL - Grace Immanuel Bible Church recently acquired an Allen & Heath S7000 digital mixer with a DM64 MixRack and DX32 Expander to support its worship services and special programs. The upgrade was necessary. Dan Kreider, Grace Immanuel’s minister of music, says the church’s special services may include a 12-voice mixed ensemble and an orchestra resulting in as many as 78 sources. To accommodate this quantity of inputs and provide separate mixes for its sound reinforcement system, in-ear stage monitors and live broadcast, the church had been cascading a pair of older, 32-channel digital mixers. However, this setup was complex to operate, the channel count was insufficient and the broadcast feed had “hit its limits.”

JBL VTX system powers the Yuma Tent.INDIO, CA —Taking the spotlight at one of the hottest festivals of the year, a JBL Professional by Harman sound system was selected for the Yuma Tent at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA.

With this goal in mind, sound designer George Stavro, owner and head designer of Sonic Lab Audio and Integral Sound, specifically chose a JBL VTX system for the Yuma Tent.

Jon Schwarz at CTS Audio’s Rivage PM10.BUENA PARK, CA —CTS Audio of Brentwood, TN, has taken delivery of its first Yamaha Rivage PM10, adding to its already healthy stable of Yamaha digital consoles. CTS Chief Engineer, Jon Schwarz, shares his recent experience using the flagship console at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville while mixing FOH for  the Wallflowers. “Pivotal to this console are the Rupert Neve Designs transformers, which I have been able to get into," Schwarz notes. "The transformer emulation really smoothes things on condensers for overhead cymbals, AC30 guitars really have a bark and bite to them, and the ability to create a lot of analog warmth.”

L-Acoustics K1/K2 System Rocks Canada’s Juno Awards

E-mail Print PDF
Solotech flew a full K1/K2 system for the 2016 Juno Awards.CALGARY, Alberta, Canada -  The Juno Awards, Canada’s most prestigious music awards show, recently aired live on CTV from Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome and featured performances by many of the country’s leading music artists, including Alessia Cara, Bryan Adams, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Dean Brody, Jann Arden, Shawn Mendes, The Tenors and The Weeknd. But it was the performance by an L-Acoustics K1/K2 sound system—provided by another Canadian original, Solotech—that seamlessly kept the music sonically clear all night long. The system proved to be an ideal solution for Scotiabank Saddledome, which is a beautiful sounding hall with a unique hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped roof offering fantastic interior sightlines. That same design poses challenges in terms of weight limitations. However, the weight-to-power ratio of L-Acoustics’ K2 allowed the Junos to enjoy powerful system performance without concern for any weight-loading issues.
