Riedel and RRN Deliver Remote Mastering Service for Live-Streamed Peter Maffay Concert Posted: 02/06/2020
Riedel and RRN Deliver Remote Mastering Service for Live-Streamed Peter Maffay Concert

Riedel Communications and Remote Recording Network (RRN) today announced their collaboration on a unique remote mastering service for a live-streamed concert performed by Peter Maffay and local musicians from Steintor-Varietè in Halle, Germany.

The special acoustic concert, which took place on April 13 (Easter Monday), was mixed on location by Werner Schmidl and, using RRN's Remote Mixing facility, mastered remotely by Peter Brandt from Studio Boecker in Cologne. Both locations were connected through the Riedel Remote Operations Center (ROC) in Wuppertal, which served as the communications and signal transmission hub of the operation. From there, ROC engineers monitored communications, remotely configured all signals, and transmitted all audio streams between venue and studio.

This method of communication and audio transmission was jointly developed by Riedel and Remote Music Productions, a subsidiary of RRN, and is setting standards for the production of high-quality, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective audio transmissions.

Magewell has been named to the second annual Streaming Media Producer 25 list of the leading technology companies driving advances in live streaming media production.

dBs Music Opens A Neve Room At Its Plymouth Teaching Facility Posted: 25/02/2020
dBs Music Opens A Neve Room At Its Plymouth Teaching Facility

dBs offers students facilities for learning real world music production and technology skills. To this end, the institution has recently invested in a new recording studio/studio lecture space with a 16 channel Neve Genesys console at its heart.

Entitled the AMS Neve Room, the new facility is located at dBs Music Plymouth and complements other studio facilities offering industry standard equipment.

Stu Welsh, who is responsible for leading the BA (Hons) Music Production and Sound Engineering and MA Innovation in Sound Post Graduate courses, says: “The console was previously installed in our commercial studio but has been moved to the new classroom so that students can have full access it. We are running the console in conjunction with a Pro Tools HD rig and a Studer A800 MkIII 2" tape machine. Although it is a steep learning curve for students, once they are familiar with the routing and the digital layer they soon appreciate the flexibility and efficiency the console delivers – not to mention the great Neve analogue sound.”

The new studio in Plymouth is being used to create audio and video content and will also be used by most, if not all, guest lecturers.

Welsh adds. “Everyone loves working in the Neve Room, it's become one of the most used recording suites at our Plymouth Campus. It is especially popular for recording and for mixing with lots of analogue outboard gear.”

The Natural Sound of DPA Microphones Brings Real Pleasure To Rostislav Pavlik Posted: 25/02/2020
The Natural Sound of DPA Microphones Brings Real Pleasure To Rostislav Pavl and iacute;k

Although it is more than 14 years since Slovakian producer and record label owner Rostislav Pavlík first heard a DPA microphone, the memory of the exquisite pleasure the experience gave him is still as fresh now as it was then.

“The first DPA stereo pair I bought contained two 4006 Omnidirectional Microphones and the sound of them shocked me so much that I no longer wanted to use any other microphones,” he explains. “DPA are great for everything. What I appreciate most is that they portray truth, reality, nature, and make musical instruments sound how they should sound. I have bought many more DPAs since then and for many years they have been the only microphones I have used for my recordings.”

Based in Tvrdošín in northern Slovakia, Rostislav Pavlík began his career in the early 1990s when he started recording amateur ensembles and folk musicians for his own label, Pavlik Records.

Since then he has gone from strength to strength, recording classical, jazz and folk projects ranging from solo musicians to chamber ensembles and orchestras, in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Pavlik Records now has its own studio that is equipped with Dynaudio monitoring, a Mackie MCU PRO console and a Merging Technologies’ Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation with a Horus Networked Audio Interface. The recording system is digital and allows Pavlik to record in very high resolution (384 kHz and 32 bits).

AJA Upgrades Ki Pro GO and Ki Pro Ultra Plus Posted: 13/11/2019
AJA Upgrades Ki Pro GO and amp; Ki Pro Ultra Plus

 AJA Video Systems has introduced new upgrades for its Ki Pro Family of production-proven file-based recorders. A new v1.5 firmware update for Ki Pro GO adds timecode recording and playback, expanded primary and backup recording to all USB ports and new clip naming and segment recording. Ki Pro Ultra Plus v5.0 introduces a new Infinite Recording feature that allows the unit to act as an always running backup recorder. Both firmware updates will be available soon to customers as free downloads.

Ki Pro GO is AJA’s new portable, multi-channel H.264 recorder and player, featuring up to 4-channels of simultaneous HD and SD capture to affordable, off-the-shelf USB media. With the v1.5 firmware update, Ki Pro GO now records and plays video with timecode. The timecode can originate from an incoming SDI video’s RP188 data, be recorded as the time of date or be specified to start at a specific hour. For playback, timecode values are automatically embedded as RP188 data on Ki Pro GO’s SDI outputs. The v1.5 update also expands backup and primary recording to all five USB ports, providing users with increased flexibility to choose their desired recording destination. Additionally, the update adds new clip naming and segment recording, automatically creating a unique file name for each clip and identifying each segment of a continuous recording for extended event time needs.
