BUENA PARK, Calif. (October 24, 2017)—On the southwest side of Lincoln Center sits the enclave of Damrosch Park, transformed during the summer first by Mid Summer Night’s Swing, a lively outdoor dance hall, and four weeks later, the park morphs into a 4,000-seat concert venue for the Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. Both annual festivals feature live music with touring and local artists including The Harlem Renaissance Orchestra, The Paul Taylor Dance Company, Nick Lowe, Bonnie Raitt, just to name a few.
Audio Incorporated (Roselle Park, New Jersey) has supported the Lincoln the two Festivals for the past 15 years with audio production. The sound system is required to have even coverage on both the raised dance floor of Mid Summer Night’s Swing as well as after the dance floor is removed for the seated concert audience of Lincoln Center Out of Doors. “We provided a NEXO STM Line Array System that handled this easily with power and clarity,” states Stephen Tolve, President/Co-Owner, Audio Incorporated. The company upgraded to the NEXO STM speaker system three years ago.
Audio Incorporated also supplied a Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console for front of house mixing, two Rio 3224-D input output boxes and one Rio 1608-D, as well as a PM5D Digital Audio Console for monitors. This year, the main system signal chain was digital direct from the Rios boxes to the NEXO amp racks using Dante. The NEXO system was configured with a total of eight STM B118s, eight B112s, eight STM M46s, and four M28-120s, all powered by four NEXO Nuar racks. Two delay towers were also used and consisted of two NEXO STM M46s, four M28-90s, and two NEXO NXAMP 4x4 amplifiers.
"The response from the touring acts was overwhelmingly positive,” says Tolve. “The NEXO STM system has proven to be one of the premier sound systems on the market, and I look forward to working on both festivals next year. Lincoln Center is one of the best places to enjoy summer in the city!”
