International news highlights from the world of live sound, recording, broadcast, postproduction and A/V
 

The Old Lady

Seeking to reconcile the contrasting sound demands of drama with those of amplified classical and acoustic music, a historic theatre in the Netherlands has installed a Yamaha AFC3 acoustic enhancement system.

Nicknamed The Old Lady, the 102-year-old Parkgebouw in Rijssen, is well established as a venue for drama and amplified live music. But the venue’s management (headed by MD Jolanda Agteresch) was keen for the 420-seat venue to become truly multi-purpose, hosting classical music performances and, in particular, local choirs who rehearse and perform in other venues, such as the town’s churches.

Manchester Albert Hall

Now restored to its former glory – complete with its original pipe organ – Manchester’s Albert Hall is one of the most atmospheric live entertainment spaces in the city.

Rehabilitated by independent owner TROF, the venue has been equipped with a d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker system by Manchester-based audio specialist tube UK, to accommodate a diverse range of shows.

Krannert Center

Hosting visiting artists as well as its own Masters of Fine Arts programme in theatre sound and design, the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has invested in an Avid Venue S6L live mixing system. The console gives the university’s students access to current technology and provides a concert system that is accepted by visint artists and engineers.

The Krannert Center houses four indoor theatres, five indoor stages and an outdoor amphitheatre. After renting an Avid Venue Profile System for several years, the centre decided to invest in a Venue S6L, acquired through Chicago-based audio equipment provider, TC Furlong.

The Foundry Studio 1

Sheffield’s Foundry Studio is the home of the first and only 72-channel Audient ASP8024 mixing console to be built – effectively the largest Audient desk in the world.

The official relaunch of The Foundry Studio makes its1,000-sq-ft live room one of the largest outside of London. ‘With the new console, we can facilitate larger ensembles such as brass bands, choirs and full orchestras, all of which require a significant number of channels,’ explains songwriter and producer Sam Craggs, who is one of the facilitys co-owners.
