Blue Note Upgrades

Sep 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Due to the location of jazz club Blue Note’s stage, house engineers must contend with three mixing zones to compensate for the position of the instruments onstage. Petrix owner Amit Peleg, who was brought in to handle the system upgrade, knew that he had to go with DSP-based amplifiers, selecting Yamaha TXn amps (with custom DPS settings) and two dbx DriveRack 4820s. In addition, the club upgraded its Yamaha M7CL digital consoles to Version 3 software (allowing for multitrack recording) and StageMix. The entire sound system is digital; the only points of conversion are A/D at the stage box input and back, and D/A at the output of the amplifiers. Everything in between is digital either via EtherSound or AES/EBU. The system is completely networked for both signal and control. ...
