Leading Drummers Choose Auralex HoverMat and HoverDeck

Leading Drummers Choose Auralex HoverMat and HoverDeck

Auralex Acoustics is proud to see an increasing number of prominent drummers using the HoverMat Isolation Platform and HoverDeck Isolation Riser. Used together or separately, these two products isolate a drum set from the floor or a hollow stage, reducing coloration from floor resonance by decoupling the drum kit, thereby resulting in a tighter, more pure sound for both studio and live applications.

Acclaimed drummer Van Romaine, whose credits include Steve Morse Band and Enrique Iglesias, has integrated HoverMat and HoverDeck into his setup for both studio and stage work. He says, “The HoverDeck/HoverMat combo is the perfect addition to my recording studio and my drum riser for touring. The first thing I noticed was the crisp sound of my drums with no extra vibrations from outside sources. The second was how they very easily eliminated any imperfections in the flooring of my studio, enabling me to play with more confidence.”

Gotye FOH Chooses Earthworks Mics for World Tour

Gotye FOH Chooses Earthworks Mics for World Tour

With over 364 million views as of December 2012, Belgian – Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter Wally de Backer, known by his stage name Gotye, has likely become somebody that you know with his hit song featuring Kimbra “Somebody That You Used to Know”. In May 2012, Gotye announced a world tour and as they wound the globe, Earthworks microphones came along along for the ride.

Gotye’s FOH engineer Lachlan Carrick was familiar with Earthworks in a studio setting, yet discovered the live sound microphones while touring with Gotye and Kimbra in early 2012. “I’d used Earthworks mics a couple of times in the studio for various things, and was always impressed with the way they came up,” explains Carrick. “Then more recently I was introduced to the new series by a fellow Australian engineer, Angus Davidson, who was mixing Kimbra at the time. The Earthworks mics sounded like they provided excellent transient response, with a natural, full tone. Although the Kimbra sound was very different to what I was going for with Gotye, I could see how the mics could work well for us.”

Master Audio upgrades Xcellence series

Master Audio upgrades Xcellence series

Master Audio has upgraded the point source cabinets in its flagship Xcellence range with new high-end amplifier and DSP modules featuring Ethernet connectivity, bringing them up to speed with the advanced line array units in the series.

The new selection of enhanced loudspeakers includes the X12CE and X15CE coaxial active cabinets, the X15LTE two-way active cabinet – for full-range FOH or monitor applications – and the X18WE subwoofer. These units were previously known as the X12C, X15C, X15LT and X18W, so the upgraded version of each can be identified by the ‘E’ (for Ethernet), which has been added to the end of the model numbers.
