    DiGiCo has announced the debut of the SD10-24, a console that boasts features and benefits that instantly distinguish it from the others in the SD Series, just in a more compact package. “When we introduced the SD8-24, which was primarily designed with the corporate market in mind, it was an immediate hit,” says James Gordon, DiGiCo’s managing director. “The SD10-24 is based on the same thinking; to provide a smaller footprint console for a particular segment of the market, but… View this story

    In an ideal world, sonic perfection would be the sole consideration shaping sound system design. In reality, however, it’s a very rare installation in which budget doesn’t play a major role. Fortunately for hockey fans in Duluth, Minnesota, using Electro-Voice EVA line arrays for the brand new AMSOIL Arena turned out to offer the best possible coverage and intelligibility while actually reducing overall purchase and installation costs compared to the alternatives. Home to the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) Bulldogs… View this story

    The iconic 1967 film The Graduate ends with protagonist Benjamin Braddock (famously played by Dustin Hoffman) interrupting the wedding of his true love by banging on the church window from a loft at its rear and screaming her name, just as she is about to kiss her soon-to-be husband. The scene and a number of subsequent scenes of comedic homage (Bubble Boy, Wayne’s World 2) were shot at La Verne United Methodist in La Verne, California. However, for the parishioners… View this story

    Motocross has never sounded so good, with db Technologies digital line arrays towering above the Motocross World Championship racecourse in Fermo last month. The dramatic undulations of the Italian track used for the last Grand Prix of the season presented quite a challenge to provide complete coverage during the two-day event, but Andrea Salvioli was up to the challenge. Making use of the manufacturer’s newest release, DVA T12, dBTechnologies Product Manager and Audio Specialist, Salvioli explains the system’s design. “We… View this story

    Presented in the Italian cave Grotte di Castellana, Hell in the Cave depicts anguished residents of the tragic underworld in Dante’s epic poem Inferno. Rather than using a single stage, the daring creators of the show take the unorthodox approach to bring the audience through scenes in separate grottoes. While visitors enjoy an immersive dramatic experience, the equipment supporting the presentation must endure a hostile environment through a long subterranean performance season. The sound designer chose a reinforcement system of… View this story
