23 April

Available in four sizes and utilising the same Bluefin2 and Hydra2 technologies as the larger Apollo console, Artemis has an enormous routing and processing capacity. Bluefin2 gives Artemis Shine 680 channel processing paths, 456 on the Artemis Ray, 340 on an Artemis Beam and 240 on an Artemis Light, with up to 128 program busses, 64 IFB/Track outputs and 32 auxiliaries.

Artemis Light packs all this into a compact 4U core. Artemis’ integrated router means all I/O functions can be performed by Hydra2, using the same high capacity cross-point router technology and a variety of I/O units.

All Artemis

consoles feature:

  • 12 dual layers of faders.
  • 6 bands fully parametric EQ/filters on each channel, group and main path.
  • 2 x compressor/limiters, 1 x expander/gate, and sidechain EQ/filters on each channel, group and main path.
  • 4 independent simultaneous post fader, pre-fader or pre EQ track / IFB sends per channel/group path.
  • Comprehensive monitoring and metering. User splits and independent monitoring for multiple operators.
  • Independent DSP operation ensures audio continuity in the event of a PC or control reset
  • Integral 8192×8192* router with up to 512 audio channels per Hydra2 port (*4069×4096 router on Artemis Light). Fully integrable with any Hydra2 network.
  • Extensive range of Hydra2 I/O available.
  • Copper or fibre connectivity.
  • Highly resilient – all modules are hot-pluggable with automatic redundant PSU, DSP, Control processor, Router module, I/O Expansion module
  • Low power consumption and heat generation.
  • Integral 8192² router (4096² Artemis Light)
  • 16/32 Router ports
  • All I/O provided over Hydra2 network via a comprehensive range of Hydra2 I/O boxes
  • Cat5e or fibre connectivity

KARA by L-Acoustics

Comments Off on KARA by L-Acoustics

The KARA modular line source element has an operating frequency bandwidth from 55 Hz to 20 kHz. This response can be lowered down to 32 Hz with the addition of the SB18 low-frequency extension.

KARA features a 2-way, bi-amplified design and is equipped with 2 x 8” neodymium LF speakers in a bass-reflex tuned enclosure. The HF section features a 3” neodymium diaphragm driver coupled to a DOSC® waveguide.

The K-shaped coplanar transducer configuration generates a symmetric horizontal coverage of 110° without secondary lobes over the entire frequency range. The combination of coplanar symmetry and DOSC® waveguide allows the system to fulfil the 5 WST® criteria. Any KARA line source can be curved up to a maximum of 10 ̊ for each element without breaking the inter-element acoustic coupling.

The KARA enclosure is made of first grade Baltic birch plywood to ensure maximum acoustical and mechanical integrity. The 4 point rigging system allows suspending up to 24 KARA in a single array.

The KARA system is driven by the dedicated LA8 amplified controller which ensures active system linearization, intelligent transducer protection, and optimization for 3 operating modes:

• The “FULL RANGE” mode for standalone Line Source arrays or distributed applications
• The “HIGH-PASS” mode for fills or for KARA as a K1 downfall
• The “LOW EXTENSION” mode for KARA/SB18 configurations.
The performance of KARA depends upon the choice of electronic preset and physical system configuration.

Modular WST line source

  • Compact and lightweight design, compliant with rigging and sightline constraints
  • Extended LF resources for contour requirements from flat to medium
  • Clarity, intelligibility and precision for vocal, speech and lead instruments
  • 110° horizontal directivity for distributed applications, fills and central clusters
  • LA-RAK (LA8) advanced system drive and protection
  • A state-of-the-art rigging system for high accuracy and quick set-up
  • White and architectural RAL colour available (KARAi)

Si Performer Series Digital Mixing Console by Soundcraft
GSLadmin
22 April

Drawing on the combined heritage of legendary Soundcraft quality and the powerful and intuitive Vi Series digital live sound mixers, the Si Performer brings unparalleled mix power and performance to small format digital live sound mixers.  Each console in the range is identical in its feature set so your only choice is how many faders and local mic amps you want.

The Si Performer Series features up to 32 local recallable mic preamps and 8 stereo inputs along with two ViSi Connect option card slots with an additional 128×96 input/output paths, with a massive mix capacity of 64 mono inputs and a total of 80 inputs to mix.  Each input channel has dedicated processing for high pass filter, input delay, gate, compressor and parametric EQ.  Keeping you in control are 8 VCA busses, 8 mute groups, FaderGlow and colour backlit name displays on every channel so you are never lost.

All Si Performer consoles have busses and output processing to match the versatility of the inputs; the 14 aux/group mixes can be configured as 14 mono mixes or 8 mono plus 6 stereo mixes, whilst the matrix mixes can be mono or stereo as needed.  The bus and matrix mixes are complemented with four mix busses dedicated to the internal Lexicon FX processors and left, right and centre busses with options for mixing left/right + mono/centre or left/centre/right (LCR).  Each bus features a compressor, 4 band fully parametric EQ, graphic EQ and delays always available all of the time.

To complement the channel and bus processing all Si Performer consoles integrate four Stereo Lexicon FX processors based on the MX400 providing a wealth of sounds, user adjustable parameters and dedicated tap-tempo keys.  As the FX are hardware based use of all the effects even on the most demanding shows do not affect the processing in any way.  All dynamics, PEQ, and all 31 graphic EQs are available all of the time.

Si Performer 1 Si Performer 2 Si Performer 3
Mic Preamps 16 24 32
Line Inputs 8 8 8
Faders 14+2 22+2 30+2
  • Assignable Fader Layers — Customise each of the four fader layer pages to meet your needs or add/insert faders to accommodate that additional mic that was not in the patch list!
  • 1 Control = 1 Function — With each control dedicated to a given function there is never any ‘layering’ of controls or navigating through screens; this allows the Si Performer controls to be labeled on the surface just as they would have been on an analogue mixer.
  • TOTEM — The One Touch Easy Mix; press a single key to mix to an AUX, FX or Matrix bus, the surface and monitoring instantly reconfigure to allow instant mixing to your chosen bus on the faders.
  • Soundcraft FaderGlow — Illuminates the fader slots according to function with clearly defined colours for FX, Stereo, Linked Mono, GEQ, POST Fade Aux, PRE Fade Aux; you’ll never be lost again!
