Custom Audio Equipment Package Heats Up the Stage with Passionate Adaptation of Hugely Popular Novel
NEW YORK, MARCH 6, 2014 – Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, provided a custom audio equipment package for the new romantic musical, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The show officially opened on Thursday, February 20.
Based on James Waller’s best-selling novel, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY tells the story of photographer Robert Kincaid and his life-changing, four-day love affair with Iowa farm wife Francesca Johnson. Developed by a Pulitzer®- and Tony® Award-winning creative team, this new musical captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the eternal question, “What if…?” Directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher and book by Marsha Norman, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY features a score by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and stars four-time Tony Award-nominee Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale.
Sound Designer Jon Weston and Masque Sound began their collaboration on THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY when the musical made its world premiere at the Williamstown Theatre Festival last summer. “I have enjoyed a long relationship with Masque Sound and it’s great to be working with them once again,” says Weston. “They are an excellent sound shop to collaborate with and I can always count on them to provide me with the equipment that I like to use, which in some cases is not that easy to find since I like the characteristics of older gear. I specifically chose an older-era console, speakers and amplifiers for this production.”
Weston’s goal in designing the sound for THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY was to be as sonically transparent as possible. “In order to provide that organic, analog feel for the show, we walked the line of acoustic reinforcement very carefully and discretely, including an all-acoustic orchestra pit,” he adds. “I really wanted the sound to be as real as possible.”
At the heart of the custom audio equipment package Masque Sound provided was the Cadac J-Type analog console, which Weston considers the finest-sounding audio mixing console. Masque Sound’s custom equipment package also included Tannoy 3836 Dual Concentric 15-inch speakers, EAW JF200 and JF60 ultra-compact two-way range speakers, d&b audiotechnik E8 and E12X-Sub loudspeakers, Meyer Sound subwoofers and speaker processors, Yamaha H series power amplifiers alongside d&b audiotechnik power amplifiers, Sennheiser and Shure wireless microphones, XTA Electronics DP428/448 Speaker Management System and a Clear-Com intercom system. In addition, Masque Sound provided frequency coordination for the 24-channels of wireless in-use throughout the show.
“My biggest challenge on this project was finding the equipment I wanted because it’s not stuff that rents all the time and Masque Sound did an incredible job in accommodating my needs,” says Weston. “This was a true collaboration and my team, made up of Head Sound Engineer Jason Strangfeld; Assistant Sound Engineer Sean Luckey; Production Engineer Charlie Grieco; Sound Engineer Michael Eisenberg and Assistant Sound Designer Josh Millican, along with the designers of the other departments, were all on the same page on how we wanted the show to look and feel, and I think we were very successful.”

“I am now at the stage where I am sure I would miss Live if I had to revert to my previous system”
OXFORD, ENGLAND – When the company’s owner mandates the use of its latest technology for its first major tour, you can be sure everyone involved, knowing his perfectionist approach, gives it their full attention and then some. Peter Gabriel’s Back to Front tour made full use of the new SSL Live consoles supplied by Britannia Row Productions for the first part of the tour in Sept/Oct 2013, and will continue to demand perfection from the console when the tour resumes in April 2014. Happily, the hard work paid off and artists, engineers and SSL’s design team were all thrilled with the results – as were audiences across Europe.
Three Live consoles were employed to handle the Back to Front performances. One at front-of-house, one was for the band’s monitors and one was used for Peter Gabriel’s monitoring system. All the consoles performed flawlessly.
“The first thing to say about Live is that it sounds really good and makes mixing live audio very easy,” says Ben Findlay, FOH engineer. “You get lots of separation and clarity. The EQ is musical, never harsh, and the dynamics are transparent even when compressing a signal hard, as you would expect from an SSL console. The mixes come together quickly when starting from scratch. Because the audio is very clearly defined, you have more options regarding relative levels, so elements of a mix that may normally be masked with another console are still clearly audible. This leads to accomplishing the often illusive third dimension to a mix that live engineers strive for — and that is a real sense of depth. The console is also extremely reliable with not so much as a flicker during the whole tour. I am now at the stage where I am sure I would miss Live if I had to revert to my previous system. Live is a great console.”
The Live console was designed to appeal to engineers with a range of operational approaches and can be used very flexibly. The Back to Front shows provided clear evidence as the three highly experienced mixers took advantage of the adaptable bus architecture, processing tools and user interface options to support their personal approach to the differing tasks they were managing.
“Ben and I recorded a multi-track version of the Back to Front show during the U.S. tour in 2012, so we had a ready reference to run through the Live console when it became available before official show rehearsals,” says Richard Chappell, Peter Gabriel’s live show coordinator and personal monitoring and studio engineer. “When we first worked with Live, we realized how very exciting and pioneering this console was. This console sounds great. The first part of the learning curve was the impressive touch screen that allowed each of us to configure the setup the way we wanted to work. The needs of monitoring are, after all, different from FOH. For me, Live is the engineering equivalent of what a musical instrument is to a performer. I can now do what I do better with Live. Secondly, I’ve heard horror stories in the past about other new consoles going out and crashing or not working. With Live, we never lost a show, it always worked.”
“Live is a hybrid console that has a touch screen but it’s also button operated; a real crossover between two ways of working,” says monitor engineer Dee Miller. “For an engineer, it’s a very powerful tool and capable of doing a lot of things. What I’ve had to do is learn how to use the desk to mix the show my way, so Live is a tool for any particular job as opposed to bending a job around a different manufacturer’s tool. It’s got some great features on it and it’s very powerful. Live sounds great, the clarity is extremely good and I would just say that you can hear everything really, really well. From an engineering point of view, I made many performers happy with their monitor mixes using Live.”

Partnering with The Continental Club, Nomad Sound, Jimmy Kimmel Live
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT, will be showing its entire line of microphones again this year at Gear Expo, Booth #209, March 13 – 15 during South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
TELEFUNKEN also has partnered with The Continental Club in Austin, which will have their entire main stage equipped with a variety of Tfunk mics, including the M80, M81 and M82 dynamics, in addition to DD5 Dynamic Drum sets. http://www.continentalclub.com/Austin.html
TELEFUNKEN also hosts their open SXSW party at the Gallery @ The Continental Club on Thursday, March 13th from 6pm to 8pm with performances by artist Gone By Daylight & others TBA.
In addition, TELEFUNKEN has partnered with Austin-based audio specialists Nomad Sound and will provide dynamic microphones for additional outdoor stages throughout the SXSW event.
The Continental Club’s production manager and Nomad Sound’s lead engineer Jamie Wellwarth, commented: “Telefunken has changed the whole sound of the Continental Club. Their M80 and M81 dynamic mics have brought out a clarity to the vocals that we just didn’t have before. We use the M82 on kick drum giving us solid boom and attack. It’s great working with Tfunk, because we are going for the same thing — great sound in a rockin’ nightclub.”
Lastly, TELEFUNKEN microphones will be used for the SXSW tapings of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Audio Engineer Bart Chiate remarked, “The TELEFUNKEN M80_s are my go-to mics for the live performances on JKL. But with the show happening in Austin it wasn’t logistically possible for us to bring our own mics, so we reached out to Tfunk and they fixed us up with all the mics we need for our crew at the festival. It’s gonna be a blast, especially since we know we have the sound totally nailed.”
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik strives for absolute perfection. By offering historic recreations of classic microphones alongside their own proprietary designs based around the distinctive tube mic sound, TELEFUNKEN has established a product line that expertly combines vintage style and sound with the reliability of a modern-day microphone design. TELEFUNKEN’s commitment to both the sonic excellence and quality of all of their products is rivaled only by their dedication to provide the best possible service to each and every one of their customers.

AAX64 Support, New Features and a 33% Promotion Discount
Audiotech Digital Ltd has announced the release of the new Penteo 4 Pro plug-in that discretely converts stereo to 5.1, offering exacting control over sound image placement to create high-quality, sonic-free and natural-sounding surround.
Penteo 4 Pro is 100-percent ITU down-mix compatible to the original stereo. The plug-in features an intuitive visual interface modeled after vintage gear, and offers six automated preset modes as well as advanced manual controls for fine-tuning.
Mike Minkler, multiple Oscar-winning re-recording mixer at TODD-SOUNDELUX, explained, “I’ve used Penteo on almost every project for five years now, such as Django Unchained, Twilight Saga, and Inglourious Basterds. The new plug-in really shines. With a flick of a switch I can take a two-channel mix and get a quality 5.1 mix, which is a huge asset in these budget-conscious times, especially when independent films just can’t afford more than a stereo source for me to work with.”
Native AAX64 Support
Penteo 4 Pro now natively supports Avid Audio eXtension (AAX) for true 64 bit processing. As a result, Penteo 4 Pro AAX64 uses 52% less CPU processing power thereby allowing a sound designer more flexibility to simultaneously use more tracks in a mix than ever before.
“Penteo produces such a warm surround mix, and we are thrilled that now Penteo supports Avid’s AAX64 format,” said Ed Gray, Director, Avid Partnering Programs. “Now sound designers will benefit by being able to run more instances and tap all the new features of ProTools 11.”
* Touch Screen Controls – In addition to mouse operated controls, Penteo 4 Pro is the first up-mixer to support multi-touch controls. Mixing is not a linear, sequential process — Penteo’s unique multi-touch interface allows a sound designer to control more than one Penteo feature at once, thereby creating a natural mixing experience through simple hand contact. Penteo 4 Pro is the world’s first multi-touch plug-in designed for use with the Raven MTX Surround console.
* Pro Tools Automation Keyboard Shortcuts for all parameters – Quickly add and select parameters for automation using standard control/alt/cmd shortcuts.
* Usage Preferences – With choice of circular or vertical knob drag usage options, a sound designer can select the most natural feeling knob movement for mouse or multi-touch.
* New bypass channel routing – Stereo bypass channels now routes to the ProTools channel output standard.
Special Promotion Pricing
To celebrate Penteo’s AAX release, from March 4 to April 16th, 2014, new purchases of any format of Penteo will receive 33% off the purchase price. Free trials are available here:
Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, is the exclusive U.S. distributor of this new plug-in. Penteo 4 Pro will be available beginning March 4, 2014 online at www.GuitarCenter.com, with demos available at multiple GC Pro locations.
