Sennheiser Flies with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets

presentation.JPG

Toronto, Canada, July 2010: Sennheiser Canada, premier provider of aviation headsets as well as consumer and professional audio devices, is a proud supporter of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets and the Air Cadet League of Canada (ACLC).

The annual support that Sennheiser provides to the Air Cadets is threefold. First Sennheiser contributes an HME 110 aviation headset to each of the winners of the Industry sponsored Power Pilot Scholarships. Second, each of the twelve finalists at the Air Cadet Effective Speaking Competition is presented with the Sennheiser/Adidas PMX 680 earphones. Finally, perhaps least glamorously but most substantively, the cadets are provided with critical information regarding hearing loss induced by a lifetime exposed to loud ambient cockpit noise and how to mitigate these effects using Sennheiser noise reduction technology and other means. more

SACRED HEART DEMONSTRATES REAL-TIME MIXING FROM THE PULPIT WITH SYMNET

sacredheart_church.JPG

ANNISTON, ALABAMA – JULY 2010: Stop any random person on the street and the odds are excellent that he or she will have no idea how to operate a mixing board. It almost goes without saying, right? Despite this, most churches can draw on the knowledge and enthusiasm of a small collection of self-identified “techies” with a history of musicianship and a penchant for the gear that makes music loud. But Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Anniston, Alabama had a long run of bad luck in this regard, to the extent that the FOH chair frequently sat empty and services were sometimes interrupted so that the Father could make requisite changes himself! Integrator Joey Hutto of Sound Solutions in nearby Oxford, Alabama solved the church’s troubles with the introduction of a SymNet-centered DSP audio system controlled by a simple ARC-2 interface located right in the Father’s lectern. more

CAN YOU HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO? SOUNDCAKE DOES WITH BOTH THE BOCK 195 FET MICROPHONE AND PASSIVE ATC SCM20SL MONITORS

brando_triantafillou.JPG

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: For some twenty years, composer, musician, and sound engineer Brando Triantafillou has been writing, performing, and recording music for advertisements, film, and rising stars in the music industry. His clients include Verizon, Adidas, Nike, McDonalds, Sony, and the U.S. Army, among many, many others. Triantafillou’s production company and well-appointed project studio in Chicago both fall under the oddly delicious name of Soundcake, where two recent additions have found a comfortable home. A new BOCK 195 large-diaphragm FET microphone jumped to the front line amid an enviable collection of other A-list condensers, and a new pair of ATC SCM20SL passive near-field monitors are revealing Triantafillou’s recordings and mixes with “brutal honesty,” leading to finished projects that translate anywhere and everywhere. more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: The proverb states that nothing succeeds like success, and prolific mix engineer Serban Ghenea is living proof of its truth. After some years sharpening his musical intuition as a player in the jazz, funk and R&B worlds, Ghenea discovered he had a natural aptitude for creating compelling mixes. Over fifteen years, he has developed that aptitude into a flawless genius that has the music industry’s A-list artists lined up at the door to work with him. In the last two years alone, Ghenea has mixed over twenty number one songs for artists such as Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and Kelly Clarkson. Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in is Ghenea’s go-to solution for all equalization and dynamics adjustments. And every mix that has left his studio in the last six years, chart-topping or otherwise, has benefitted from multiple instances of ChannelStrip. more

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – JULY 2010: Under the banner, “Outstanding Music for Outstanding Causes,” and the leadership of Michael Alexander Young, the Charities Philharmonia gets together twice a year to deliver creative and energetic concerts. All proceeds from the events go to benefit worthwhile causes and organizations. In recent years, Andrew Levine has had the opportunity to record the concerts, which almost always take place at St. John’s, Smith Square, in central London, a building erected in 1728 in the English Baroque-style. Its acoustics are stunning, and Levine has captured impressive stereo and surround recordings with minimal setup times using a Metric Halo ULN-8 mic-pre & interface with a Metric Halo MIO virtual mixer. The most recent recording took place at the end of May, with the ensemble performing Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead and Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. more
