The main auditorium at Sweden’s Göteborgs Stadsteater has been equipped with a TiMax Soundhub and TiMax Tracker for vocal localisation

Göteborgs StadsteaterThe TiMax SoundHub-R32 delay-matrix processor now controls zone level, EQ and matrixed delay for the auditorium’s main FOH system – which comprises seven d&b audiotechnik Q1s loudspeakers distributed around a central d&b Q10 suspended across the proscenium. This is  supported by two L-Acoustics MTD115s and a further two L Acoustics MTD112s providing side fill to the rear and front.

A total of 24 Tannoy 8-inch speakers act as delay fills to the upper and lower house and to the balcony, with fill by three EAW JF50S enclosures. Two d&b J-subs and two L-Acoustics SB218s subs located left, centre and right provide sub bass reinforcement.

There are six TiMax Tracker (TT) Sensors, positioned proscenium upstage left and right, downstage left and right, and house left and right on the balcony facing back to the stage. These are able to track 16 TT Tags, using UWB real-time location analysis. The soudion can then be made to follow actors around the stage by continuously adjusting the delay-matrix to maintain accurate audio localisation for individual radio mic feeds.

The TiMax SoundHub-R32 delay-matrix processor comes with the AES-MIO digital I/O cards which support multiple sample-rates and also provide parallel analogue outs.

The project was overseen by head sound engineer at the theatre, Jorgen Eriksson, and the complete system is designed primarily to improve the vocal intelligibility when the on-stage actors use lapel microphones. ‘Audience members have commented that they can now hear the actors and so now, when we use the TiMax with have no problem at all with the acoustics and the clarity of the sound,’ he says.

‘Now the image definitions have all been defined, the system can just be switched on for use – it’s as simple as that.’
