Si conclude in bellezza il 2012, con una travolgente serata di sport e spettacolo. Prestazioni sportive di alto livello e spettacolari performance mozzafiato sono gli ingredienti essenziali dell'Ice Gala, un appuntamento che ormai da 12 anni rappresenta tradizione e grande prestigio ma soprattutto un'opportunità unica per vedere all'opera le più grandi stelle del pattinaggio artistico e della danza su ghiaccio. E così è stato: sabato 29 Dicembre nella magica cornice del Palaonda di Bolzano, oltre 7200 spettatori hanno potuto assistere ad uno show a dir poco straordinario: atleti e acrobati olimpici e mondiali di altissimo livello, nonché clown noti in tutto il mondo, hanno regalato al sempre interessato e numeroso pubblico presente in sala una serata indimenticabile. Alla tredicesima edizione hanno presenziato le due atlete italiane di maggior spicco: Carolina Kostner e Valentina Marchei, nonché i quattro più forti atleti del Giappone: Fumi Suguri, Akkiko Suzuki, Yuzuru Hanyu e Tatsuki Machida.
Il service audio e luci incaricato per l'Ice Gala 2012, "Piano e Forte", da diversi anni ha stretto un solido rapporto con RCF: "Abbiamo fatto questa scelta con RCF perché sicuramente è il top che può offrire il mercato, sia dal punto di vista dell'affidabilità che della qualità. Quando si lavora con prodotti RCF, si ha sempre la certezza di poter lavorare bene e dare il massimo". Così Gustavo e Roberto Ferretti, titolari di "Piano e Forte", manifestano pieno apprezzamento per la loro collaborazione con l'azienda reggiana.
Per dare "suono" alla serata sono stati scelti prodotti RCF di altissima efficienza e professionalità: TTL33, modulo array attivo a 3 vie, TTL31, soluzione ideale per le applicazioni indoor e HDL20 modulo array dal suono straordinariamente dinamico.
Il Dott. Manfred Call e il Dott. Michael Atzwanger, rispettivamente presidente e vicepresidente di Calma Srl, agenzia organizzatrice dell'evento, si sono congratulati per l'altissimo livello qualitativo raggiunto con il nuovo sistema RCF: "L'eccellente qualità audio dell'edizione di quest'anno" spiega il Dott. Michael Atzwanger "ha certamente contribuito a creare l'atmosfera giusta e a rendere questa serata un evento indimenticabile". In questi 12 anni di Ice Gala, infatti, la grande collaborazione tra "Piano e Forte" e Calma Srl, basata sulla reciproca fiducia e stima professionale, è cresciuta a tal punto da raggiungere mete ed obbiettivi tecnici al top, proprio come in quest'ultima edizione. "L'evento in sé è stato formidabile" - conclude Atzwanger - "e la ciliegina sulla torta sono state davvero l'acustica e la sonorità, assolutamente impeccabili. Senza dubbio il nostro obbiettivo è stato raggiunto."

Adjoining the famous Escape Club on Amsterdam’s fashionable Rembrandtplein, and also owned by experienced entrepreneurs, Ton and Dick Poppes, the new Kitchen & Bar Van Rijn has opened in the style of a grand café, with a terrace and upstairs area.
Inspired by the beauty and the masterpieces of Rembrandt van Rijn, following a substantial investment, guests can enjoy authentic Dutch cuisine in a cosmopolitan atmosphere with open kitchen, whole listening to music through a premium RCF sound reinforcement system.
In fact premium is the watchword, since installer Mike Ho, of locally based service company 24/7 Audio, specified a TTL11-A active steerable column array, requiring only two systems with two presets to service all the requirements — literally 24/7 (including live music and a DJ on weekends).
“I first heard this system under demo at RCF’s headquarters in Italy, and was so blown away that I couldn't wait to use it. Since the requirement at Kitchen & Bar was multifunctional, this presented the first opportunity.”
“The owners have been doing this for more than 30 years and one was a DJ back in the day — so we both know the importance of good audio.”
A popular addition to RCF’s Touring & Theatre series, the system is composed of two modules, TTL11A-H for the mid-high and TTL11A-B for the bass frequencies. It is run here with separate sub bass extension and is digitally steerable down to -10°.
Since it is used for live artists, DJ, various live playback devices and a pianist at a grand piano, Mike Ho has judiciously processed the sound with two different presets — one for daytime, the other for after dark.
“The TTL11-A provides a unique solution. I would have hung 20 or more conventional speakers to produce a result that delivers coverage to all four corners of this huge restaurant. And people are telling me they don't even notice the speakers because they are so discreet!"
“Everyone is delighted with the quality of the sound; it’s crisp and clear and genuinely multi-purpose.”

Giunto alla sua seconda edizione, Benny Benassi and Friends 2012 ospita a Reggio Emilia una straordinaria lineup di DJ a livello internazionale. Gli organizzatori dell'evento in collaborazione con Pro Music, service audio, luci e backline incaricato per l'occasione, hanno scelto RCF per celebrare al meglio il sound elettronico e trasformare due notti di musica in un emozionante momento di condivisione.
Per l'assortimento del live equipment sono stati scelti prodotti RCF di alto livello: 24 HDL 20-A, moduli array di indiscussa qualità, e 14 SUB 8006-AS, il subwoofer più grande e più potente della "serie Professional". "Grazie a questi prodotti dalla tecnologia assolutamente innovativa" - spiega Stefano Corrias, titolare di Pro Music - "siamo riusciti a dare a questo evento un'impronta di alto stile, sia dal nostro punto di vista sia per quanto riguarda la resa del sound della serata. La nostra collaborazione con RCF, ormai più che decennale, ci permette sempre di lavorare al meglio, con prodotti di alta professionalità e affidabilità e dal rapporto qualità-prezzo assolutamente interessante." Benny Benassi & Friends 2012 è un evento dance di importanza nazionale che il 21 e 22 dicembre 2012 ha portato al Palahockey Fanticini di Reggio Emilia il sound e lʼatmosfera dei grandi “Festival” americani e nord-europei, in una realtà che vanta un pubblico molto ricettivo e attento alle nuove tendenze.
A fare gli onori di casa, naturalmente, è Benny Benassi, DJ reggiano cresciuto artisticamente nelle discoteche della sua provincia e oggi tra i più apprezzati DJ-produttori internazionali, con innumerevoli successi da classifica e collaborazioni con artisti del calibro di Madonna e Rolling Stones. "Le due serate del Benny Benassi and Friends di Reggio Emilia" - continua Corrias - "sono il chiaro segno che il nostro sodalizio con RCF funziona alla grande e che anche in questa occasione siamo stati in grado di creare un'atmosfera e un sound assolutamente in linea con le aspettative del pubblico presente al palahockey Fanticini". Insieme a Benny, in queste due serate, è inoltre salita sul palco un'importante selezione di DJ di livello internazionale, tra cui il “top-producer” olandese Nicky Romero, Crookers, Congorock, i milanesi Pink is Punk e tanti altri, tutti accomunati dallʼ“amicizia”, non solo musicale, con il DJ reggiano.

Twenty-three product categories covered everything from live sound recording software to large format line arrays and system engineer/tech tools.
RCF received Readers' Choice Awards for the TT052-A ultra compact, high output loudspeaker in the "Loudspeakers: Active" category and the TTL33-A active, three-way line array module in the "Line Arrays: Small Format" category.

EDISON, NJ (January 2013) – Thunder Audio, headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, has provided famous artists and corporate events with sound reinforcement systems and crews for more than three decades. Their client list ranges from Trace Adkins, Dolly Parton and Diana Ross to Robert Plant, Steely Dan and Metallica.
In an effort to provide the low end that today's music demands, the company recently added 34 RCF subwoofers to their production inventory.
"The sub harmonic frequency coverage and punch that come from these boxes is amazing," explains Tony Villarreal, owner for Thunder Audio. "Whether used as forward facing sub frequency enhancement or as end fire arrays, the performance is second to none."
Specifically Thunder Audio added 24 TTS56-A (double 21") subs along with 8 TTL36-AS (double 18") flyable active subwoofers and 2 TTS28-A (double 18") active subs.
"With built in processing and individual delay capability, you can create many configurations quickly while in the field," adds Greg Snyder, business development manager for Thunder Audio. "What a great product for us to have added to our audio tool box."
Thunder Audio recently used the TTS56-A subwoofers to hold down the sub lows for a number of high profile events. The Skrillax New Years Eve Electronic Music Festival at the Palace of Auburn Hills utilized 18 boxes while the Detroit Electronic Music Festival held at Hart Plaza used 16. Thunder Audio provided 24 for the Orion Music Festival with Metallica. The band also used the subs to support their recent performance at the Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans.
The TTS56-A is a high power, high output active subwoofer system that features two 21-inch neodymium woofers. Each subwoofer is powered by a 6,800 watt, 2-channel digital amplifier with PFC. On-board DSP sets new standards for distortion, noise and thermal efficiency. Monitoring of all system parameters as well as modification of gain, equalization or delay is possible via the internal RDnet networking board.
The TTL36-AS is a flyable, active subwoofer that features a clam-shell design to ensure maximum output. The 2 x 4.5-inch voice coil and vented 18-inch woofer design offers the minimum of power compression. Each module is powered by a 4,000 watt, 2-channel digital amplifier with PFC. Similar to the TTS56-A, proprietary RDNet software allows end-users the capability to control and monitor DSP and other subwoofer parameters.
"That Thunder Audio chose RCF subwoofers over alternative products speaks volumes," says John Krupa, national sales manager for RCF US. "We are very excited to be working with them and look forward to developing a mutually beneficial business relationship between our two companies."
Villarreal and Snyder confirmed that 2013 will be a busy year for the new subwoofers with plenty of outdoor festivals and concerts requiring the air movement the boxes provide.
"We look forward to continued product use and design input with RCF," concludes Snyder. "We enjoy the relationship and respect between our companies and plan on building on that in the future."

Peter Branders Media Sound erweitert sein Studio mit RCF Mytho Monitoren.
Einer der besten Gitarristen Dänemarks und einer der am härtesten arbeitenden Persönlichkeiten des Musikbusiness – sind ein und dieselbe Person.
Er hat mehr als 1000 Alben produziert, mehr als 5000 Live Gigs absolviert und 42 verschiedene Gitarren in seiner Sammlung – Peter Brander ist eine Legende der dänischen Musikindustrie.
Als Produzent hat Peter Brander seinen unverkennbaren Fingerabdruck auf Dutzenden auf dänischen Rockklassikern hinterlassen. Für viele dänische Rock- und Popikonen war Peter Brander – und ist bis heute – einer der unentbehrlichsten Sounddesigner, sei es als Produzent im Studio, als Techniker bei unzähligen Konzerten oder als Gitarrist und Backup-Sänger live und im Studio. Ferner hat er eine Reihe von internationalen Künstlern produziert und ist berühmt für seine unglaublich rockigen Mixe.
Alles begann vor 34 Jahren mit dem Rock Tape Studio – einem bescheidenen Standort, der schnell zur ersten Adresse wurde, wenn man den richtigen Rocksound wollte. Das Studio war rein analog ausgelegt, die dort produzierten Alben allerdings hatten einen solch klaren Sound, dass jeder glaubte, es handele sich um digitale Aufnahmen.
“Ich habe meine Aufnahmegeräte immer sorgfältig ausgesucht und gelernt, das Äußerste aus ihnen herauszuholen. Das Rock Tape basierte komplett auf altem Equipment und einem hellen Kopf, der daran herum schraubt, um das Rauschen wegzubekommen – und dadurch klang es moderner”, sagt Peter Brander mit einem Lächeln.
Um das Rockimage abzulegen, änderte er den Namen des Studios in Media Sound Studios und begann nach und nach, das Studio mit zusätzlichen Mischräumen und jeder Menge neuem Equipment und Digitaltechnik zu erweitern.
“Im Laufe der Jahre haben wir mehr Pop- und Jazz-Recordingsessions gemacht, aber glücklicherweise konnten wir gleichzeitig unsere Position als bevorzugtes Studio für Rockaufnahmen beibehalten. Deshalb habe ich mich entschieden, ein neues Gebäude zu beziehen und somit zwei Mischräume und einen großen Aufnahmebereich zusammenzulegen”, so Peter Brander.
Durch die Anschaffung einer großen SSL-Konsole m Hauptmischraum sowie einer Reihe von externen Geräten und die Aufstockung (Upgrade) des digitalen Recordingsystems erfuhr das Studio eine wesentliche Aufwertung.
Die Kundenliste im Media Sound Studio ist lang. Mehrere Platin- und Goldalben dekorieren die Studiowände von Künstlern wie: Big Fat Snake, Kashmir, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, DAD, Michael Falch, Sort Sol, Walter Trout, Erann DD, Peter Viskinde, Nikolaj & Piloterne, Royal Hunt, Outlandish, Mike Tramp, White Lion, Nerve, Innocent Blood, Rockers by Choice, DJ Encore, Seven Thorns, The North, Lars H.U.G und vielen anderen mehr.
2011 wurde das Media Sound Studio mit einer neuen Mastering-Suite erweitert, in dem kürzlich ein Paar RCF Mytho Studiomonitore installiert wurden.
„Ich habe lange nach der richtigen Lösung für einen Mastering-Monitor gesucht. Wir haben etliche Nahfeldmonitore getestet, ohne den richtigen zu finden, der perfekt zu den alten Sachen passt, die wir bereits haben. Dann hat mir jemand empfohlen, einmal die RCF Mytho Lautsprecher zu testen. Also habe ich den dänischen Distributor SC Sound kontaktiert, und sie haben mir die Speaker geliefert. Als ich das erste Stück darüber abhörte, muss ich sagen, war ich positiv überrascht. Ich kannte RCF schon seit vielen Jahren von meiner Live-Arbeit als FOH und Musiker her als gute Marke – aber ich hatte noch nie etwas von den Studiomonitoren gehört. Hier saß ich also und hörte Lautsprecher mit einer solchen Klarheit und guten Trennung der Höhen, Mitten und Bässe. Ich habe mich gefragt, ob ich wirklich einen Nahfeldmonitor höre, da der Sound so kraftvoll und doch durch alle Bereiche hindurch klar war. Sofort sagte ich: Das ist mein neuer Monitor, und sie sind jetzt in der Mastering Suite installiert, aber ich werde sicher noch weitere Pärchen für die anderen Studioräume anschaffen“, sagt Peter Brander.
Produktspezialist Lars Holm von SC Sound hat die Lautsprecher geliefert und half auch beim Finetuning.
“Es ist begeisternd, wenn man Peter Branders Media Sound einen modernen Studiomonitor liefern kann. Dieses Studio ist solch eine Legende, insbesondere mit all den professionellen Musikern, die über die Jahre ihren Weg in das Studio gefunden haben, um hier aufzunehmen”, sagt Lars Holm von SC Sound.
Neben all der Studioarbeit findet Peter Brander immer noch Zeit, sein eigenes Repertoire auf der Bühne zu präsentieren. Vier Soloalben hat er veröffentlicht. Sein letztes Doppelalbum “No Compromises” hat gute Kritiken bekommen und wurde als eine der besten West Coast Blues-Veröffentlichungen des Jahres 2011 gefeiert.
Mit dem neuen Material will Peter Brander 2012 mit den Musikern Kasper Foss, Jimmy Ostbygaard, Soren Kuhle, Anne Murillo & Gry Trampedach auf Tournee gehen.
“Es ist immer ein Vergnügen, auf der Bühne zu performen und als FOH-Techniker schaue ich immer, wenn ich auf Tournee bin, welches Soundsystem benutzt wird. Ich habe im Frühjahr dieses Jahres das RCF TT+-System bei einer Demo in Kopenhagen gehört und es war echt beeindruckend. Das System ist sehr kompakt und liefert hohe Schalldrücke ohne Kompromisse, genau wie meine RCF Mytho-Lautsprecher. Ich denke ernsthaft über dieses System nach, denn so kann ich meinen Studiosound auf die Straße bringen. Das liebe ich”, sagt Peter Brander.
