Buena Park, CA (April 2, 2014)—The Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT recently purchased two Yamaha CL5 digital audio consoles for its sound system’s FOH and monitors, along with Rio 3224-D and 1608D input/output boxes.
“We already own two Yamaha M7CL-48 digital consoles, two Yamaha LS9-16s and an LS9-32,” explained Mat Diamond, lead audio technician for entertainment at the resort.
Diamond said the custom knobs and fader banks, storing system scenes that can be recalled, EQs, and built-in Premium Rack that can be used together or independently were deciding features. “I love the idea of the Premium Rack and hope that more effects will be added down the road. I personally like to use the Portico 5033 as my EQ for masters. I really like using the dynamic EQs for vocals. I love how the Yamaha CL allows me to control certain frequencies without eliminating them entirely.”
Since the Yamaha CL consoles have been installed, artists that have performed in the Wolf Den include Macy Gray, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, Foghat, G. Love & Special Sauce, Walk Off the Earth, Chuck Negron, Gin Blossoms, Uncle Kracker, Los Lonely Boys and Eddie Money.
