The Music Studios at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City has installed 13 of the recently released Grace Design m802 remote-controlled mic preamps. The system was specified by Randy Ezratty and Joel Singer of Effanel Music/XM Productions, and the sale was handled by Chris Payne of New York based Grace dealer, Tekserve.

The m802 is comprised of two components; the 2U, 19-inch rack mount 8-channel preamp and an external 1U, half-rack linear power supply. The optional m802RCU remote control unit can control up to eight m802s at a distance of up to 1,500 feet. The system can optionally be fitted with 130V inputs on a per channel-pair basis to accommodate customers using DPA 130V microphones. MIDI control has been implemented which provides compatibility with Digidesign’s Pro Tools|HD workstations and control surfaces as well as many other MIDI based hardware and software platforms.

“I’m mixing live in Pro Tools|HD and controlling 72 channels of the m802 preamps, located at the stage, directly from one of our Digidesign D-Command control surfaces,” says Rob Macomber, chief engineer at the Music Studios at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

The m802 carries an SRP of $4,995 U.S. and the optional m802RCU remote has an SRP of $1,495 U.S. The 130V option is priced at $295 U.S. per channel pair. The m802 system is sold through Grace Design’s channel of authorized U.S. dealers and international distributors. Visit www.gracedesign.com for more information.
