Luminex has released its latest Araneo software (release v1 .3.0).

When Cooperstown, NY, came alive for the triumphant return of The Glimmerglass Festival, Sound Designer Andrew Harper called upon Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, to provide a custom audio equipment package for the highly acclaimed summer opera and musical theater festival.

Harper was presented with a unique challenge under the current health and safety standards. “Normally all productions are done inside at the opera house where there is no amplification at all,” says Harper. “This year, the producers created an outdoor stage on the lawn, with the singers and audience outside but the orchestra was located inside. I was tasked with combining the two worlds of the singers and the orchestra, while also creating a great experience for the audience outdoors, all while keeping everyone socially distanced.”
