Nashville, TN, April 30, 2009 — 615 Music has written and produced a new theme song for Peachtree TV and the Atlanta Braves, 615 Music President and CEO Randy Wachtler announced today. “The Braves Play Hereâ€? was written by Greg Barnhill and Randy Wachtler for 615 Music. The song was performed by recording artists Montgomery Gentry on the Columbia label, with Blake Chancey and Randy Wachtler serving as co-producers.

“This year’s version of ‘The Braves Play Here’ is an extension of a song we created last year, incorporating the famous Braves chant echoed by Braves fans at Turner Field in Atlanta,� Wachtler said. To view the music video for this new song, please see: http://www.615music.com/core/play_media.cfm?video_id=197&type=1

Added Eddie Montgomery, “Creating a song for some of baseball’s biggest fans was something new and different for us.

PORTABLE SOUNDFIELD MIC HELPS TO CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF OZ ST350 USED EXTENSIVELY FOR LOCATION SOUND ON BAZ LUHRMANN’S ‘AUSTRALIA’

australia.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: SoundField’s portable ST350 microphone was used extensively to capture 5.1 location ambience during production of Baz Luhrmann’s recent cinematic epic ‘Australia,’ starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, and also featured in one of Apple’s ‘Set To Screen’ series of short video clips about film production (now available as podcasts for free download from the iTunes online Store). The ten-minute MP4 episode on Sound Design for Luhrmann’s latest opus features supervising sound editor Wayne Pashley using the ST350 to record wind sounds, salt flat ambience and musical performances on location in baking 40-degree temperatures for ‘Australia,’ and Location Sound engineer Guntis Sics being unequivocally positive about the crew’s choice of microphone.

wayne_pashley.JPGAlthough he fulfilled a studio-based post-production role when working on previous Luhrmann projects such as ‘Strictly Ballroom’ and also the Australian hit production ‘Happy Feet,’ Pashley was asked to go out on location to record the surround ambience beds for ‘Australia,’ to allow Sics to focus on capturing the actors’ dialogue on location. “One of this film’s primary characters is the land itself,” explains Pashley. “Because of the sheer scale of the picture, and the epic feel to the images on screen, the idea was to match that with the audio. So the ambiences had to be in surround. We wanted to immerse the viewer in them.”

Most of the film’s location recording took place in the barren north-western corner of Australia, in the Kimberley Mountains near where Western Australia borders the Northern Territory. “I could have dragged five microphones and a Pro Tools rig around the remote countryside, but that didn’t really appeal!” says Pashley. “The combination of the Sound Devices recorder and the single SoundField mic was a lot easier to carry, and just as flexible in terms of what we could capture with it. More so, in fact.”

recorder_st350.JPGRecording in SoundField’s four-channel proprietary B-Format, Pashley was able to create 5.1 mixes of his recordings at leisure during the post-production stage. If recorded to a suitable four-channel medium, the B-Format signals from SoundField microphones can be decoded with absolute phase coherence to a variety of possible formats long after the original recording. Thus Pashley was able to create 5.1 and/or phase-accurate stereo mixes from his four-channel location B-format recordings using SoundField’s Surround Zone decoder plug-in for Pro Tools, depending on the requirements of the film’s dubbing mixers. “I usually did a simultaneous stereo fold-down alongside the 5.1 mix, taking up eight channels in Pro Tools, in case there was a problem with the surround, so that there would be a few options at the dubbing stage,” he explains. “I got really into the SoundField Surround Zone software. On some of the recordings, I needed to back off some of the low-end on the dubbing stage, so it was good to have discrete control of the LFE channel. But I was also able to use the ST350 as a directional microphone for on-set dialogue on the sound stage recordings, by adjusting the polar pattern retrospectively at the post-production stage. The ST350 was also great on some of the studio-based crowd scenes – I used it instead of a standard X-Y stereo pair to give a sense of movement through the crowd in surround.”

With ‘Australia’ complete and a worldwide success, neither Wayne Pashley nor Guntis Sics are leaving the ST350 behind. Sics purchased the ST350 mic used on ‘Australia’ from the production crew when the film wrapped, and Pashley is already planning uses for it on his next projects. “I’m a great advocate of the SoundField approach now. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get great results in 5.1 with the ST350. And it’s not a clever-clever scientific tool for use in the studio, either – it was very robust. It had to be, to survive in some of the extreme environments I used it in!”

‘Australia’ was just released on DVD on March 3rd. For more information on SoundField’s ST350 and the associated Surround Zone software for Pro Tools and VST-capable digital audio workstations, see www.soundfield.com.

THE OSBOURNES RELOAD WITH SENNHEISER

osbournes.JPGHOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA: The Osbournes – Sharon, Kelly, Jack, Ozzy and assorted favorite dogs – are returning to television soon with a variety show on FOX that features audience interaction, candid camera-type skits, music, and even a pair of “mini Osbournes,” two British child actors who impersonate Sharon and Ozzy complete with off-color language. Six episodes of “Osbournes: Reloaded,” which will air later in the year, have already been shot at CBS Television City in Hollywood, where production mixer Evan Adelman did his best to capture the mayhem with a combination of Sennheiser wireless handheld and lavalier microphones.

“The Osbournes were all wearing Sennheiser SK 5212 wireless transmitters and Platinum lav mics,” reports Adelman. “But most of the time they were on SKM 5200 handhelds, with the omni heads that I like to use, the ME 5005.”

In addition, he says, “They were all wearing G2 receivers and their own molds for their IFBs. That’s the first time I’ve had that happen. Normally the talent uses standard IFB receivers, which work in a different frequency range with not as wide of an audio bandwidth, since they’re designed strictly for communications. But of course the Osbournes are all performers, so they’re used to hearing full fidelity with their in-ear molds. We initially gave them this communications equipment and they said, ‘This sounds terrible, can we use what we usually use?’ It made sense to me!”

Adelman reports that, “Because of the environment and how loud the audience was, and because the stage was enormous, the hand mics were used almost all the time – as much I could get them to, anyway! There was a jib on each side that could swing over the audience, so I was only able to mic about a third of the audience. But when the Osbournes would go into the audience with these omni hand mics I could hear pretty much everything that was going on. You could hear people react – not on mic, but slightly off. That was appropriate because they weren’t on mic. They were five or six feet away. It created a natural sound that matched the picture much more accurately than a directional mic would have.”

“Osbournes: Reloaded” is produced by Fremantle Media North America with executive producer James Sunderland, a veteran of British variety shows, the main influence on the show. When the show was first announced, trade journal TV Week described it as “a combination of the popular Spanish-language series ‘Sabado Gigante,’ ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ and the German game-show format ‘Wetten, dass?’ (Wanna Bet?).” Ozzy Osbourne put it more succinctly at a press conference previewing the show in January: “We are a very dysfunctional family, doing a very dysfunctional show.”

SYMETRIX ANNOUNCES AIRTOOLS 6100 FIRMWARE UPGRADE

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE, WASHINGTON – JANUARY 2009: Symetrix is pleased to announce an optional firmware update for the AirTools 6100 Broadcast Audio Delay that adds user-specified offset to the TC89 (ESE clock) output. With the new firmware, an additional menu in the 6100′s user interface allows a radio engineer to specify a constant offset time between zero and sixty seconds for the TC89 output so that the studio clock displays the TID (time in delay) plus the uplink/downlink latency. This allows the 6100 to easily accommodate delays incurred from ISDN lines, codecs, satellite signals, etc.

Upgrades are only performed at the Symetrix factory. The fee for the upgrade is $300 and also includes a full factory test and overnight return freight to the customer via Symetrix’ preferred carrier. The customer is responsible for the inbound freight. Symetrix will attempt in good faith to perform the upgrade the same day the unit is received and to ship the unit back no later than the following day. The upgrade does not extend the unit’s hardware warranty.

To upgrade, contact Symetrix customer service by phone (+1 (425) 778-7728 – 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday PST), email (support@symetrixaudio.com), or via the Internet (support.symetrixaudio.com).

Symetrix will provide you with an RA (return authorization) number that you must include with your shipped unit.

Owners of older 20-second AirTools 6100s may combine a 40-second delay upgrade offer with this new firmware upgrade offer. The combined cost for both upgrades is $400 with the same terms and conditions as detailed above.

ASHLY NE SERIES AMPLIFIERS NETWORK AT UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN

univwisc_riverfalls.JPGRIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN – APRIL 2009: The University of Wisconsin – River Falls is a 6,300-student arm of the celebrated Wisconsin system located in the northwest corner of the state. It is well-respected academically and athletically, and boasts modest, but well-appointed, facilities for teaching, research, sports, and recreation. The Knowles Physical Education Center plays a prominent role in campus life and serves, among many other things, as the site for indoor graduation ceremonies. However, a recent failure during an important graduation speech spurred the school to update its sound system. The solution, designed and installed by Burnsville, Minnesota-based Intermedia Systems Group (ISG), centered on Ashly Audio’s groundbreaking NE-series of network and DSP-enabled amplifiers.

In addition to graduation ceremonies, which seat 3,000, the Knowles Center hosts indoor track events and physical education classes. When not used for those purposes, the university opens it up to the community, consistent with the “Wisconsin idea” of public service. Thus, the sound system is used for background music throughout most of the day. During track events, it provides a mix of background music and announcements.

Joel Evermann, systems consultant at ISG, provided the new system with Shure wireless microphones, an iPod dock, and radio and CD inputs. A Biamp Nexia CS provides a “front end” for the system, including input selection and processing. From there, a single, two-rack space, eight-channel Ashly NE8250 provides power for eight Community R.5 full-range loudspeakers. A two-channel Ashly NE1600 provides the low-end power for a pair of Community CPL55 subwoofers.

The Ashly NE-series amplifiers provide speaker processing using two SHARC 32-bit/96 kHz chips each. Ashly’s features allow for musical equalization, filtering, delay and dynamics algorithms to perfectly tune the speakers to the room. “In addition to the usual budgetary constraints, we were also quite limited in terms of space,” said Evermann. “Being able to cram so many channels of high power amplification into just four rack spaces was critical.”

The Ashly NE-series amplifiers ship network ready and are designed to work with “plug and play” reliability. Indeed, that fits nicely with ISG’s emphasis on “the IT side of things, in addition to traditional audio/visual work,” in Evermann’s words. He continued, “Networking audio systems cuts down tremendously on travel costs. Service is easier from the installer’s standpoint and less costly for the client. Network ready devices, such as the NE-series amps, have definitely expanded horizons for contractors and users alike.”

With the new system up and running, UW River Falls technicians no longer worry about dropped audio, whether it’s during an important graduation speech, a track event, or open gym time. “We really hit the performance they wanted under the budget they required,” concluded Evermann. “The whole thing is transparent, compact, and user-friendly. It’s the kind of sound system that just does what it’s supposed to do.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO INC. With over a thirty-five year history, Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in designing and manufacturing quality signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets.
