Do you really want your historic auditorium or worship space to look like a concert venue?

To us, there's not a lot worse than cluttering up a traditional or historic auditorium with obvious technology, so when Da-Lite introduced its Wireline Advantage last March, we were thrilled.  Many large venues feature beautiful architecture that you just don't want to cover up with a screen; but what happens when you want to project content onto large screens to enhance the event experience? 

Luckily, with the Wireline Advantage, you don't have to compromise. The innovative design actually enhances the architecture of the room instead of hiding it like other screens. 

How exactly does it do that? The Wireline Advantage uses thin steel cables instead of black drop (extra fabric) to lower the screen to the appropriate height. This almost invisibly suspends the viewing area – and only the viewing area – at the correct height for the audience. The screen housing also can be easily recessed above the ceiling.

The result: an installation that leaves the architecture of the room exposed for stunning results.  See our previous article with photos here.

This week, Da-Lite announced that the Wireline Advantage was now available in a new 10' size, so we have even more options for designing the perfect space for you.  Please let us know if you have questions and/or need more information.

X32 Firmware 3.0 Features New User Interface

BEHRINGER has released a much-anticipated X32 Firmware and Application Software Update V 3.0, consolidating the new versions of the X32-Edit (PC/Mac/Linux/RPi) and X32-Mix (iPad) remote control apps, bringing major performance enhancements to the X32 operating system.
Most notable are: the new Automixing option; support for the new X32-EDIT 3.0 remote control application; networked and MIDI remote control directly from X-TOUCH control surfaces; and output phase inversion on all outputs, Aux outs and Ultranet channels. Also included are X-Over filter options for the Main LR and Mono/Center bus EQs.

BEHRINGER X32 Auto mix

The automatic mixer algorithm, provides more gain to the main speaker, while other open mics are attenuated. The use of this Dugan-style gain sharing ensures a low background noise floor – without any gating/ducking artifacts.  

X32-Edit App

The new X32-Edit app features a redesigned and scalable user interface, optimized for touch-control; automixing; configurable fader layers; floating FX windows; and much more. The X32-Mix iPad app has also received an update to support Version 3.0 firmware.

X-Touch Integration

Complete integration of X-TOUCH controllers provides a new hardware control option for all X32 users, particularly suitable for X32-RACK and X32-CORE.
 
Constant Improvement

“We are constantly adding new features to the X32’s extremely stable eco-system, providing the best possible feature set and performance– the X32 just keeps getting better!” commented MUSIC Conception Senior Engineer Jan Duwe.

Choir mic shootout - Heil PR30 versus Beyerdynamic MC930, Neumann KM185, and Lewitt LCT340

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

In order to get a great choir sound in modern worship, you need a microphone with exceptional isolation, great uniformity of the polar or pickup pattern across its frequency response, and to be able to preserve enough warmth to make voices sound natural, without feedback.  And if you're a choir director, you know this is a tall order. There's always too much of something being picked up (besides the choir) - the drum kit, the orchestra, the bass amp, you name it.  You just never have enough of the voices. 

In early April, we were contacted by a church in Huntsville, AL with a little bit of a challenge.  The choir director had read our article about the Heil PR30 and its effectiveness for choir use and wanted to put it up against some big names in the microphone business.  Beyerdynamic (MC930), Neumann (KM185), and Lewitt (LCT340).  We talked with him for a few minutes and decided that we were up for the challenge, albeit with a sliver of trepidation. I mean, all of those microphones cost at least double of the PR30.  So we sent him four microphones to try, and waited for his report. 

Here's what he said. (click the link below for the rest of the story - hint: it's what you think it is, but I'll let his words tell the story)
