The Voice

Now in its third season in South Africa, The Voice talent show entered its ‘live show’ phase, broadcast from Mosaiek Teatro in Fairland, Johannesburg, and aired on M-Net, DStv 101. This year, this section will use L-Acoustics’ L-ISA Hyperreal Sound technology by L-Acoustics and DiGiCo mixing from Mutli-Media, the show’s technical supplier.

Multi-Media has worked with The Voice since the competition hit African soil four years ago. During this time, the company become more involved in live events. Having invested in 30 L-Acoustics Kara, 12 SB18, four KS28 and seven LA12X amplified controllers at the start of the year, it has added a further 18 Kara, four SB18 and five LA12X for the L-ISA configuration.

Fly Open Air

Having begun working with Fly Events on the inaugural Fly Open Air EDM event in Princes Street Gardens – the 6500-acre grounds of a historic building overlooking the River Forth, which separates Edinburgh from Fife – in September 2016, Creation Live followed the event to the 17th century Hopetoun House, the following May.

With the event more than doubling the first Hopetoun House attendance to 8,500 per day this year, Creation adopted sister company VME’s Martin Audio MLA to handle both sound delivery and sound control..

Denis Orynbekov

After five years spent building its profile in music production, live-sound recording and mixing and podcast production, Los Angeles’ has a new studio facility in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

For the operation’s workflow, 23dB co-owners Fela Davis and Denis Orynbekov have chosen Focusrite interfaces – the ISA Two microphone preamp; multiple Clarett 8Pre Thunderbolt audio interfaces; the Scarlett OctoPre eight-channel mic preamp; and a portable Scarlett 2i2 interface. ‘The Clarett interfaces are fantastic, both as mic preamps and as converters,’ says Orynbekov. ‘It lets us operate at 24/96 when we choose to, and we’re able to run two or three sets of monitors through it. It’s our main interface with Logic for recording and editing.’

Colorado Symphony

Accompanying a Star Wars screening at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, the Colorado Symphony performed John Williams’ full score as the latest in a series of orchestra/movie pairings including the Colorado Symphony’s own accompaniment of Star Wars: A New Hope in 2018. Supporting Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back was Clearwing Productions’ deployment of L-ISA Hyperreal Sound.

Clearwing was the first North American company to use the system, initially for an outdoor Santa Barbara Bowl show with Odesza, then later at the same venue with Bon Iver. However, this event marked the first time that the production company had used it for an orchestral event – and at the request of the Colorado Symphony.

Calrec Artemis Light console

KBS Radio has added two Calrec Artemis Light consoles to the Radio 3’s Summa as part of a significant technology upgrade for its Happy FM and Cool FM stations.

‘The Korean music scene is booming, courtesy of K-pop,’ says Kim Kiyong, Deputy Manager at KBS Radio Production Technology. ‘We need to convey the clear, crisp modern production sound of this exciting genre of music and that requires premium-quality consoles. Of course, all our other content benefits too. We have been very happy with the Summa console we have installed so Calrec was a natural fit for us with the Artemis Light. These consoles are both compact and powerful, which was exactly what we were looking for.’
