THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon, a popular dining and country music venue in Anaheim, CA, comprises 20,000 square feet of restaurant, wine cellar, and live country music, now includes a new sound system with two Yamaha M7CL digital consoles.
Further, the M7CL control surface at front of house is connected to a Yamaha NAI network interface, AD8HR mic pre amp, and EtherSound cards, all running off a Yamaha DME64 digital mixing engine.
THE RANCH is the longtime dream and vision of Andrew Edwards, president and owner of Extron Electronics, a leading manufacturer of professional AV system integration products. All components in the sound system were handpicked by Edwards.
Allstage Pro owner Ian Ingram worked closely with Edwards as well as Extron application engineer consultant John Fish in selecting an elaborate EtherSound networking system in the saloon.
“Andrew wanted us to design and install a system that would be both analog and digital, user friendly, acceptable for most riders, and one that he could be proud of,” says Ingram, whose company is based in nearby Santa Ana, CA. “The idea of using the M7CL control surface to NAI and AD8HR gives us the best of both worlds.”
Allstage Pro also designed and integrated a comprehensive lighting system to provide a wide variety of lighting scenes and visual effects for featured concert acts.
Eighty-three lighting fixtures, the majority of which are LED based, were installed in conjunction with the elaborate electrical infrastructure.
