BUENA PARK, Calif.—As part of the American Express UNSTAGED series of webcast concerts (via Vevo and YouTube), Mary J. Blige performed her breakthrough 1994 album My Life, followed by selections from its sequel out November 21st, My Life II … The Journey Continues (Act 1) featuring a collaboration with Nas on ‘Feel Inside’ at the Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
Le Mobile’s Guy Charbonneau brought his specialized Le Fly-Pak system to record the UNSTAGED concert live. A Yamaha DM2000 was integrated into the Le Fly-Pak system for the purpose of mixing the live performance. “The Club Nokia is pre-wired with fiber tie lines that connect to the AEG offices,” states Charbonneau. “The Yamaha DM2000 had been setup in an adjacent AEG office that was temporarily converted into a control room. The remote control room made mixing the live performance possible.” The performance was broadcast simultaneously on YouTube and Vevo capturing over 1.4 million viewers.
Charbonneau said the entire show was recorded in pristine form through the use of Madi/fiber lines, connected to the Yamaha DM2000 and to Le Mobile’s on stage Fly-Pak. “Le Fly-Pak systems interconnect both cleanly and swiftly to the DM2000 especially with the addition of the Yamaha MADI cards, which add an additional 64 channels using Fiber or Coax cable.”
The Le Fly-Pak System is one of the most versatile, complete, high-end systems on the market today. Contained in 8 road cases, it offers great flexibility for recording projects, records, audio for live concert DVD, television, and broadcasts. The system consists of 64 channels of microphone preamps (48 channels of Grace Design 801 and 16 channels Millennia HV-3D), ProTools HD, Apogee Converters, Apogee Big Ben, RME ADI 648 MADI converter, a video sync and time code generator for video interface, full 64-tracks of redundant hard disk recording system, and JBL LSR monitors. Le Mobile can also of integrate one of Le Mobile’s Studer 24-track analog A-800s into the plug and play system.
