— In the fast-paced world of broadcast commercials, Beacon Street Studios finds that time is its most precious commodity, and GC Pro’s full-service capability means Beacon Street can focus on the music while GC Pro finds the right gear —

beacon street

Beacon Street Studios in Venice, California, is a unique kind of place, where major international advertising firms, including BBDO, Ogilvy & Mather and DDB, have their clients’ music created for broadcast spots, such as the five commercials for Career Builder, Hyundai, Bridgestone and Gatorade that they scored for the Super Bowl this year. At the same time, music artists including Hootie & the Blowfish and April Hendrix, and noted music producers like Don Was and Ed Cherney, have also found Beacon Street Studios – a space once occupied by the legendary Joni Mitchell – to be a creative haven for their art. Being such an in-demand facility keeps their calendar busy, and as they were looking to update several studio components, the biggest issue was time. Fortunately, Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, helped the studio find the right gear effectively and efficiently, determining what new equipment was needed to help the facility keep up with demand. With GC Pro on its side, Beacon Street was able to keep the focus where it needs to be – on the music. more

K-array Helps Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall Ring in New Year with Exquisite Sound, Compact Footprint

k-arrayNew York, NY– 15 March 2010: When Lou Mannarino of New York-based L&M Sound and Light was asked to provide sound on New Year’s Eve at one of New York City’s most prominent venues–Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall–he was faced with a daunting challenge: to provide impeccably transparent sound in a visually discreet footprint. The New Year’s Eve celebration, featuring the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, was to be broadcast on live television and there was just one chance to get it right.

Mannarino—a veteran in the live sound business with over 30 years experience—has always been two steps ahead of the pack with a keen eye for innovation. To meet the needs of this very special engagement, he looked to Italian loudspeaker manufacturer K-array’s revolutionary speaker technology, which delivers exquisite sound within an uncharacteristically small footprint. The sonic result was described by those in attendance as “breathtaking” and “incredible.” more

Wildomar, Calif. – (March 15, 2010) – Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, is pleased to announce that its PRO-750 headphone has been chosen by GRAMMY award-winning artist/songwriter/producer David Hodges. Renowned for his work with artists such as Celine Dion, Blake Lewis, David Archuleta, Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson and more, David utilizes Ultrasone’s PRO-750 for all of his studio sessions that demand critical listening.

“After using countless other high end headphones from different companies, I have been blown away by the Ultrasone PRO 750′s,â€? remarked David Hodges. “I mainly work in my personal studio, which is not acoustically treated; so having something to reference mixes against that I can trust has been incredibly helpful. And the attention to detail in design cuts down drastically on fatigue after hours of working. Now I’m hooked: I take my PRO 750′s wherever I go.” more
