FOH Engineer Dani Munoz Uses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer for Magic! Tour
FOH Engineer Dani Munoz Uses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer for Magic! TourFront-of-house engineer Dani Munoz (Flo Rida, Enrique Iglesias, Animal Collective, Snoop Dogg) chooses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer on tour for Canadian reggae fusion band Magic!. Munoz comments, “My setup includes a dual 27-inch touchscreen setup, with one Waves SoundGrid® Extreme server, one Mac Mini running Windows 10 via Boot Camp and three DiGiGrid IOX audio interface units, and it’s all cleanly packed into flight cases with the right dimensions and weight to avoid oversize charges at the airport! For me, consistency is paramount. Most of our touring work includes fly dates on a crazy schedule. On some runs, we bounce from Europe to Australia, to America and then back to Asia. Finding the same gear in every country we go to is a big challenge, and flying with my own console, in the past, was simply not possible. Consistency from performance to performance was compromised as a result of this – that is, until now… There is no console out there that is as portable, dependable, powerful and sonically remarkable as the Waves LV1.”

AlphaDog Helps To Lift The Stigma Of Mental Illness In AFI Thesis Film "Still Devout"
​Actress, Valeria Chavez , in confession next to actor, Tony Sagastizado
The stigma of mental illness keeps most people from talking about it, leaving families desperate for help and understanding. Still Devout, a new AFI Thesis film written and directed by Melissa Perez, follows the story of a young woman who embarks on a heart-wrenching journey to help find answers and healing for her brother’s mental illness. Perez based the story on personal experiences within her own family. She explains, “My family would take these unplanned bizarre road trips that were always for the sole purpose of fixing something that had gone wrong. I always felt this pressure to help my family, even if it was something I didn’t exactly agree with.”

Bose RoomMatch System Selected for Nashville-Area Hermitage Hills Baptist Church
Middle Tennessee church had a system designed for a more traditional style of music, and a RoomMatch® system was the right choice for the more contemporary worship music now featured at the church’s services
The Hermitage Hills Baptist Church, in Hermitage, Tennessee, had a problem that many houses of worship face: they knew they needed a new sound system to accommodate their transition to a more contemporary worship style, but most of the proposed solutions involved a center cluster with left and right array hangs. This would require moving the church’s projection screens, risking potentially expensive architectural changes and still-impeded sightlines.

FOH Engineer Tomas Wolfe Chooses Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console for The Neighbourhood and Other Artists
The M-5000 has become the go-to front-of-house console for Wolfe working with The Neighbourhood, BØRNS, Belly, Everlast and other artists thanks to its high degree of flexibility that lets him adjust its workflow to his needs and not the other way around, and for great Roland sound
L.A. native Tomas Wolfe worked his way up from the bottom in live audio: he began with stints at the quintessential Sunset Boulevard music venues the Viper Room and the Roxy Theatre. Two years on the L.A. club circuit led to touring, which he discovered he had even more affinity for. That led to road gigs with a series of artists including BØRNS, Belly, Everlast, the Mowgli’s and most recently The Neighbourhood, on U.S. and European tour legs. It was during this time that Wolfe first encountered the Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console. It was love at first sight — and sound. “I had read a bit about the M-5000, so I went to the Roland offices in L.A. and checked it out, and ended up doing a couple of shows with it in L.A. I found that I really liked the sound and the flexibility of the workflow.”

Guitar Center Pro Guides Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church into Its Digital Era
Large Houston church acquires two Studer digital audio consoles with GC Pro managing a complex transaction from initial planning through installation and commissioning
The Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church has been among the Houston area’s largest houses of worship for over 60 years. However, through most of that time, it was also a very analog institution, with a pair of analog consoles used for front-of-house mixing and to route audio to congregation overflow and post-production areas. As of this year, however, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church has entered its own digital age, with the acquisition of two Studer digital consoles, purchased through Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the business-to-business (B2B) division of Guitar Center providing highly customized service for professional accounts. GC Pro managed the sale of a Studer Vista 1 desk, which was installed earlier this year, used to route audio to a number of locations around the church campus. A Studer Vista V console intended as the church’s new FOH console was also installed and commissioned at the beginning of the summer. GC Pro’s Houston-based team of account managers and sales associates handled both transactions.
