When Sound Vault Studios in Chicago was constructed, Hawon Jung, partner and engineer, knew that he needed to improve the sound in both control rooms and all the live rooms. After hearing great feedback from his colleagues, Jung turned to John Calder, director of retail sales at Acoustic Geometry, to help balance the sound throughout the studio.
Sound Vault Studios is a new facility that will focus on the music and film industries in Chicago. The studio is outfitted with a total of three booths, two live rooms, two control rooms and an edit/post room. The rooms were built without any parallel walls, which removed any standing waves and created a workable starting point for room acoustics.

While cybercrime is growing, and grabbing most of the headlines recently, physical crime hasn’t gone away. Over 2 million homes and apartments in the USA are broken into each year. The price isn’t just whatever is stolen, but is also the emotional cost of both sentimental items and the sense of violation. With the growth of credit card fraud and identity theft, burglary can also lead to cybercrime. In one recent case, a homeowner’s credit card was used by the thieves within minutes after the break-in.
A security system is one of the best lines of defense in protecting your home. There are many well-known options for turn-key, monitored alarm systems that come with a professional installer and a monthly fee. Being ExtremeTech, we’ll skip past those and talk about some options for rolling your own.

Point Source Audio® (PSA) today announces that its SERIES8 lavaliers will be on center stage of visual artist and Emmy winner Jennifer Wen Ma’s acclaimed Chinese opera Paradise Interrupted set to open at the Lincoln Center Festival, July 13, 2016. In a dream, a woman meets her lover and searches for an unattainable ideal as a vast garden grows from an empty stage, only to disappear as her dream ends. This highly ambitious East meets West opera requires the central character—the talented and noted Chinese opera singer Qian Yi—to wear two Point Source Audio microphones to project her voice both vocally and visually.
Sound designer Lew Mead of Autograph A2D, together with Creative Technology Director Guillermo Acevedo and his sound recognition software, created the visual magic using the opera singer’s breath to express her mood via light and movement to fill the stage. The distinctive characteristics of her every breath means no two performances are ever alike. Acevedo reports that it took about three years to customize the sound recognition software in order to teach a computer to recognize emotion.

Statistically, your home is most likely to be burglarized between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. during July or August. The typical intruder is male, about 25 years old, and looking for cash and easy-to-carry (and sell) items such as jewelry, laptops, guns, cameras and small electronics. He’s also watching out for evidence of a home security system.
In addition, there are con artists looking for front yard warning signs and other indicators that boast protection. Home security scammers, also now in their peak season, search for residences with existing installations so they can carry out these schemes:

The Kenly Gospel Music Hall recently upgraded its sound system with a pair of Martin Audio CDD10 speakers and a CSX112 subwoofer. This followed an earlier upgrade of the performance space where additional insulation was provided between the stage and the concrete floor to attenuate low mid resonances and improve overall audio quality.
Host group of the Gospel Music Hall are the Redeemed, a bluegrass gospel group originally founded in 1978 which is now a six-piece ensemble consisting of two guitars, mandolin, banjo and upright bass. Matt Johnson is group member (dobro, banjo and guitar) and co-leader with his father Edgar Alberdeen Johnson Jr. (upright bass) the Deacon at Faith Free Will Baptist Church.
Asked why CDD’s were chosen for the most recent upgrade, Matt said, “the original system produced too much sound off the back of the speakers onto the stage, which is a problem in a small space with acoustic instruments and vocals. In addition to The Redeemed, we have a lot of bluegrass and southern gospel groups as guest artists every Sunday. With the CDD speakers, you can’t hear anything on stage that’s not supposed to be there.
“We also needed speakers that could cover every seat in the first row of seats which is only two feet away from the front of the stage all the way to back and sides of the 200-seat performance area. The CDD’s were able to cover all of it and there’s hardly a difference in sound level from row to row. You can run at much lower levels and still get all the coverage you need.“

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is home to a 7,000-pipe, 114-rank (178, including the 2004 digital expansion), five-manual Ruffatti organ. Built in 1974 and designed in part by the legendary Diane Bish, it was once the largest European-built organ in the country. From the church’s website:
“There are four sets of “en chamade” (horizontal) trumpets, including an 8-foot Italian-Spanish trumpet as well as 16-foot and 4-foot trumpets on the main organ. From the Antiphonal division, a large 8-foot Trompette de Fete is used for festive fanfares and in solo against the full organ. Accenting the Positive division is a cymbelstern in the shape of a gold star.”
For those of you who don’t speak the language, not only is it a high-quality instrument, it’s roughly the size of Vermont.
Coral Ridge is apparently quite proud of it. They feature it prominently in their concert series. They even recently hired a talented organist to play it.
They just no longer find it particularly useful for worship. Again, according to the church website:
“Our organist integrates the sounds of our beautiful Rufatti pipe organ into the more modern worship setting. While the organ is played throughout the worship set, it is most often featured in our prelude and during key moments of congregational song. The songs we sing come from many different eras of history, from re-imagined historic hymns, to modern worship choruses, to a few of our own—all set in modern musical styles.”
