New York, NY (March 20, 2015)—The new Broadway musical, Honeymoon In Vegas, has been using a pair of Out Board’s TiMax2 SoundHub-S48 audio showcontrol delay-matrix systems, along with a TiMax MADI-64 Ultimate MADI Interface port.
Staged in New York’s Nederlander Theatre, TiMax was specified by co-sound designer Scott Lehrer to provide signal distribution and delay-based on-stage localization functions. Lehrer and associate Will Pickens chose the TiMax MADI-64 ports so they could integrate TiMax in a MADI distribution system which receives radio mic receiver signals and feeds amplifiers via Andiamo AES/MADI matrix convertor boxes, and which also provide instant patching and monitoring of any receiver signal at mic handler Lucas Indelicato’s workstation below stage.
As well as onstage vocal localization, Scott Lehrer and his fellow sound designer Drew Levy wanted to provide properly time- and location-related amplification for the orchestra located deep upstage. To this end, three d&b audiotechnik Q1s were placed in structures upstage and two E12s located similarly midstage. FOH engineer Kurt Fisher could ride the levels between main band mix level and upstage level to maintain the right balance and imaging. TiMax Soundhub also allowed them to separate different orchestra elements and feed them into these mixes with slightly varied levels and delay-matrix timings relative to their locations.
Main PA is a combination of d&b audiotechnik C7 for left and right hangs with V8/V12 for centre, Q1 and Q7 delays and fills, then underbalcony and surrounds made up of E6s, E6s and E0s. Amps are D12s and D6s, the FOH mixing console is a DiGiCo SD7T, and all audio equipment was supplied by Sound Associates.
