French high-end sound reinforcement manufacturer Amadeus has been chosen to design a custom set of reference monitoring speakers for the National Audiovisual Institute’s (INA) ‘Studio 116′ in Paris. Dedicated to the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (INA GRM), Studio 116 is one of the largest of the sixty-one recording studios included in the Maison de Radio France, which is located beside the River Seine in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Founded in 1958 by French composer, writer, broadcaster, engineer, musicologist and acoustician Pierre SCHAEFFER, the Groupe de Recherches Musicales has focused on supporting research into electro-acoustic music and recorded sound, sponsoring major concerts and working with preeminent composers such as Pierre HENRY, Luc FERRARI, and Iannis XENAKIS, among many others. When INA wanted to acquire a first set of reference monitors for its GRM, they requested design ideas from almost every leading speaker manufacturers in the world, organizing a 6-month listening session at its Studio 116 in Paris. Members of the INA group slowly narrowed the selection down to 5 manufacturers, then to 2, and finally chose Amadeus to build them a custom pair of speakers. The new Amadeus reference speakers were installed in November 2013 in Studio 116 and are already being used for INA projects.

Over his 20 years of mixing the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Rat of Rat Sound has had to deal with a wide range of audio issues. During the current multi-year tour in support of the album “I’m with You”, the band encountered severe interference issues with its IEM system, which Rat addressed with a switch to the Shure PSM 1000 system and its diversity reception design.
“The troubles we were having with our existing in-ear systems were primarily due to the LED stage we have on this tour,” explains Rat. “We experienced a whole new level of interference issues. When you have the artists actually standing on an LED surface, it means the beltpack is only three feet away from the RF noise, while the transmitting antenna is maybe 30 feet away. The result was a lot of dropouts from a system that had previously been very stable. We couldn’t even do frequency scans from the stage.”
