Situated in the Melbourne’s east, the community at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church was being crowded out by a suburb fast-tracked for urban growth.

Needing to relocate to a quieter location with room to expand, they became aware that a short distance down the road the St. James Uniting Church, with its striking mid-century early modern architecture, was looking to sell.

It looked a perfect fit. A deal was done which duly led to a full-blown renovation of the church, including a sensitive, high quality audio visual fitout in the heritage-listed building. This included a Martin Audio O-Line as the sound reinforcement system.

The first plug-and-play endpoint that bridges AVB and Dante® networks, the PreSonus® AVB-D16 16×16 AVB-to-Dante Bridge enables you to send and receive up to 16 audio channels between PreSonus StudioLive® Series III mixers and a Dante network. With one or more AVB-D16s, you can easily integrate PreSonus StudioLive® Series III mixers, NSB-series stage boxes, and EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers with Dante-enabled DSPs and other Dante-enabled products, such as PreSonus CDL-12 constant directivity loudspeakers.

The AVB-D16 supports AVB audio at 44.1 and 48 kHz and Dante audio at 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz. Built-in asynchronous sample-rate conversion ensures that the AVB-D16 provides precision clock isolation between the AVB and Dante networks for pristine, clear audio with no dropouts or artifacts. This also allows you to run different sample rates on the AVB and Dante networks, so even if you’re operating a Dante network at 96 kHz, you can still connect streams between your StudioLive Series III AVB network operating at 48 kHz with total confidence that the audio will be clean and error free.

L-Acoustics rounds out its industry-leading K Series with the introduction of K3, the manufacturer’s smallest full-range enclosure, designed to deliver big sound for mid-size events with audiences ranging from 1,000 to 10,000. K3 provides full-range bandwidth, without the need for a flown companion subwoofer. Its highly efficient design reduces amplification needs. These features make K3 faster and simpler, as well as more economical and sustainable to deploy.”

“K3 is ready for the events of today and tomorrow,” shares L-Acoustics Executive Director of Application Design Florent Bernard. “Our design team created a dual-12-inch-based system with the form factor and price of a 10-inch design, without the inherent performance compromises of 10-inch loudspeakers. K3 offers long-throw, full-range performance in a compact, accessible package, tailor-made for small to mid-capacity events and venues that are the mainstay of most sound providers. It is a ‘no compromises’ tool, perfectly adapted to the current event landscape and, when paired with K1 and K2, is quickly and powerfully scalable for large-capacity events.”

Beyerdynamic has just added two new microphones to its Touring Gear (TG) series. The dynamic kick-drum microphone TG D70 and the instrument microphone TG I51 make their mark with their clear sound spectrum and their robust design. Both microphones are manufactured with high-quality materials at the company’s manufacturing facility in Heilbronn, Germany. Each microphone has a tough die-cast zinc housing and compact design, features that enable them to excel in both the studio and on stage. beyerdynamic invited Jost Nickel, the drummer for the funk and pop band Jan Delay & Disko No. 1, to become the first musician to put the new microphones to the test during a recording session at the company’s studio in Germany.

Unbeatable on the kick drum: the TG D70
The second generation of the TG D70 is the specialist among drum microphones. The large diaphragm microphone was designed specifically to record the kick drum in action. With this microphone’s help, recordings can be made quickly and easily. The TG D70 is compact and can fit into every hole on a typical kick drum as a result. The microphone can also be set up on a cajón and bass guitar amplifiers to optimally record the instruments’ sound.

Royer Labs Helps 12Stone Church Deliver Engaging Services

12Stone Church (“12Stone”) is a multi-site church with eight locations spread across the counties of Gwinnett, Hall, and Barrow, GA. 12Stone was founded by Senior Pastor Kevin Myers and has been serving the community for the past 33 years. In addition to their onsite ministry, 12Stone reaches over 20,000 people through their digital ministry. The church has been using a variety of Royer microphones for over 10 years—first for studio and live event production miking and, most recently, for streaming services production to better reach their congregation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Russell Allen, Worship Development Pastor/Music Director and Audio Director Dennis Frazier oversee the various aspects of the church’s audio production. They’ve acquired an impressive arsenal of Royer microphones, including R-121s, R-10s, R-122s, and an SF-24 Stereo Ribbon microphone. According to Allen, “We’ve had these mics for a good 10 years or so, but we really zoned into the R-121s and R-10s on the guitar cabs as recently as 4 years ago. Services are very contemporary in nature. We have 8 campuses with a full 8-10 person live band/vocal team. There are typically 3-5 front line vocalists and a 5-person backline (drums, bass, keys, and two guitars). We typically program a 3 song set list (same songs at each campus) per weekend.”
