Sound Productions (SoundPro) is excited to announce the successful conclusion of this year’s “Cut for a Cause” fundraiser, which collected over $10,000 in support of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s Snowball Express.

Why Snowball Express?
U.S. military members give so much in service to their country, unfortunately sometimes sacrificing their lives – The Gary Sinise Foundation is committed to honoring this ultimate sacrifice. The Snowball Express program serves the families of fallen military heroes so they can build memories in a stress-free, enriching community. Each December, Snowball Express brings together over 1,750 children and their surviving parent/guardian for a five-day retreat. Snowball Express also hosts events throughout the year where these families can deepen friendships in their hometowns.

Elbow’s extensive recent UK tour – the band’s biggest in years – was brought to life by their long-term, award-winning lighting designer, Cate Carter, and her use of GLP’s powerful impression FR10 Bars.

A massive fan of GLP’s innovative battens, she says that while the classic X4 Bar 20s have been “confirmed favorites that have featured on all our designs”, she took the decision to step up to the more powerful FR10 Bar after originally seeing it at the LDI Show in the United States. With its ten separate sources of 60W RGBW LED, as well as other unique features, the FR10 Bar is becoming increasingly popular with LDs.

Focusrite Collaborates with Solid State Logic to Offer System T Console Control of the RedNet MP8R

Focusrite has taken a major step in interoperability and the integration of third-party devices by collaborating with Solid State Logic (SSL) to offer SSL System T console users the ability to directly control the Focusrite RedNet MP8R remote-controlled mic preamp from the desk.
“The Focusrite RedNet MP8R is one of our highest quality mic pre’s,” says Focusrite Pro product manager Cameron Stevenson. “Its front panel and software control aspects make it very valuable in a live or studio environment where you might want to adjust the gain or set any of the parameters on stage or in studio.” However, when working with a console, says Stevenson, a lot of engineers prefer working from a single platform as opposed to having studio control room or FOH control of the preamp parameters by way of RedNet control on a computer.

“To streamline that workflow,” says Cameron, “we collaborated with SSL to allow the SSL System T console to seamlessly control our RedNet MP8R mic pre and all its parameters directly from the console. This simplifies workflow, allowing engineers to focus on their mix instead of worrying about the technology behind it.” Along with direct console control, a paired SSL system T console can store and recall MP8R parameters with console scenes and showfiles.
