Peter Brander’s Media Sound upgrades the studio with RCF Mytho.
One of Denmark’s finest guitarists and one of the hardest working personalities in the music business – is one and the same person.
He produced and recorded more than a 1000 albums, more than 5000 live gigs and 42 different guitars in his collection – Peter Brander is a legend in the Danish music industry.
As producer Peter Brander has left his unmistakable fingerprints on dozens of the most well-known Danish rock classics. Peter Brander has been, and still is the indispensable sound-maker for a number of Danish rock – and pop-icons, both as a producer in the studio, as soundman by a vast number of concerts, or as guitarist and back-up singer on records or live. Furthermore he has been recorded and produced several international acts and famous for his incredible rock mixing.
It all started 34 years ago with the Rock Tape studio – a humble facility that quickly became the studio to be at if you wanted the right rock sound. The studio was pure analogue put the studio produced albums with such a clear sound that everyone actually believed that it was digital recordings.
“I have always been very keen in my choice of recording gear and have learnt to get the most out of it. With Rock Tape it was all based on old equipment and a good spirit to tweak it and get the noise away – so it sounded more modern”, says Peter Brander with a smile.
To step out of the rock image the studio changed its name to Medias Sound Studios and slightly began to upgrade the studio with additional mixing rooms and added a lot of new equipment and digital technology.
“Over the years we did more pop and jazz recording sessions but luckily we maintained our positions as one of the preferred rock recording studio and with this I took the decision to move to a brand new facility to cut down to two mixing rooms and one big recording area”, says Peter Brander.
Media Sound Studio then went through a major upgrade by adding a big SSL console to the main mixing room, lots of outboard gear and upgrading their digital recording system.
The client list at the Media Sound Studios is long and several platinum and gold records are nicely placed on the walls of the studio with artists such as: 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 and more.
In 2011 the Media Sound Studios was upgraded with a new mastering suite and recently installed a pair of RCF Mytho studio monitors.
”I have been searching for the right monitor solutions for the mastering suite for a long time. Tested several near field monitors without finding the right one to match and work perfectly with the old stuff we already have. Then I got recommended to try the RCF Mytho speaker and got in contact with SC Sound (Danish RCF distributor) that supplied the speakers. When I played the first track on the speakers I must say that I was extremely positive surprised. I have known the RCF brand for many years from the live stages as FOH and musician, and with a good respect – but my knowledge of their studio monitors was none. Here I was sitting and listening to speakers with such a clarity and good separation between the high, mid and low sections. Am I listening to a near field speaker I was thinking, since the sound was so powerful but still clear in all aspects. Right away I said: This is my new monitors and they are now installed at the mastering suite, and I will get some pairs to my other studio rooms for sure”, says Peter Brander.
Product specialist Lars Holm from SC Sound supplied the speakers and he also helped with the fine-tuning.
“It is inspiring to be able to deliver a modern studio monitor product to Peter Brander and his Media Sound. This studio has so much legacy and especially with the long list of professional musicians that over the years has found their way to do recordings in the studio”, says Lars Holm – SC Sound
Beside the studio work Peter Brander still finds time to perform on stage with his own repertoire, 4 solo albums have been released and the recent double album “No Compromises” has received great reviews and have praised it as one of the year's best West Coast blues releases in 2011.
With this Peter Brander will be touring in 2012 featuring musicians: Kasper Foss, Jimmy Ostbygaard, Soren Kuhle, Anne Murillo & Gry Trampedach.
“It is always a pleasure to perform on stage and as a FOH engineer I always dig into what sound system that are used on the tour. I heard the RCF TT+ system earlier this year at a demo in Copenhagen and it was impressive. The system is very compact and able to supply a high sound pressure without compromises, exactly as my new RCF Mytho speakers. So I would definitely think about this, so I can bring my studio sound on the road. I like that”, says Peter Brander.

Through the decades, RCF helped to shape the development of professional speaker and with product lines such as: Art, 4Pro, Acustica, NX, TT + is one of the major players in the audio industry and very popular amongst end users.
RCF is one of the few loudspeakers manufacturers worldwide who has the ability to completely design and manufacture transducers, speaker systems, and amplification, cabinets and control electronics. Three engineering departments – acoustic, electronic and mechanical – work closely together to offer innovative projects with complete control of each detail.
Thanks to the well-known transducers technology RCF has an enormous advantage in developing a complete speaker systems achieving the perfect match between transducers and electronics.
The Art 4 series has taken a step forward with new improved features. The MK II is an improved version of the current Art 4 and features brand new designed ceramic transducers (to replace the neodymium) providing even better punch in the sound and upgraded EQ.
In developing the new drivers we have re-engineered and improved the SPL and dynamics, and reduced the harmonic distortion. The only difference you will notice with the ART4 series is the physics — while the dimensions remain the same, the weight of the enclosures has increased.
With the new Art 4 MK II series we continue our commitment to our customers to constantly improve our product series and always providing the best solution through focus on technology and innovation. This is our trademark and dates back to 1949.

The InterBEE exhibition is recognized as a professional show for audio, video and communications. InterBEE has established itself as an international exhibition showcasing top-level domestic and overseas broadcast, video, audio and lighting equipment as well as peripheral applications and solutions all under one roof.
Inter BEE has developed from a broadcasting equipment show into a comprehensive media exhibition of world-class technology.
The Japanese distributor Ballad exhibited a large selection or RCF products from the broad range of the complete catalogue.
It was a busy show and both staff from Ballad and RCF people had many hands-on demos and talked with many people about the latest product news and RCF technology.
"It was the first time for RCF being at the InterBEE show with so many products like our conference systems, monitor speakers, line array and our very compact near field speakers. Many interested customers came to see us that give me great confidence that also Japan will be a fast growing market for RCF in 2012. The presence of RCF in East Asia is getting better from day to day and the investment into InterBEE of our distributor Ballad was the right decision. We already got many new contacts from the installation market and from rental companies. That's why we will definitely show up at next year's InterBEE”, says Lars Yoshiyama – Sales Manager RCF.

RCF fa un giro Cosmic dentro Wonderland
No Saints lancia il brand dei nuovi club a Sud di Londra
No Saints, società di eventi nell’ambito del tempo libero, fondata dal precedente capo di Luminar Leisure Stephen Thomas, ha aggiunto il marchio Wonder al suo crescente portfolio dopo aver acquisito quattro nuovi siti nel sud est. Marchio conosciuto rispettivamente come Wonder Lounge, Wonder Land e Wonder Years, il vero concetto nightclub (Wonder Land) ha recentemente aperto il suo primo locale a Sutton, nel Surrey.
Di nuovo responsabile del locale con una capienza di 900 persone che aveva gestito quando si chiamava ancora Liquid, Thomas ha collaborato con la Dakota House of Design (per inserire il tema di Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie all'interno di un nightclub), mentre Mark Damon della Cosmic Electronics ha riconfermato il lungo rapporto della sua azienda con RCF per fornire una soluzione chiavi in mano di supporto audio.
“abbiamo alle spalle una lunga e positiva esperienza di collaborazione con la RCF”, ha detto, “e così abbiamo sostenuto al 110% l'idea di lavorare con loro a questo progetto perché sappiamo che i loro prodotti sono di qualità elevata e affidabili”.
Mark Damon ha dato a RCF UK un obiettivo impegnativo, cioè di provvedere alla copertura ottimale di due locali Wonder Lounge a livello della galleria e alla grande arena di sotto (conosciuto come “Il Bizarro”).
Occorreva che l'audio fosse ibrido e sufficientemente versatile per produrre non soltanto un elevato impatto in pista ma anche per avere la capacità di sfruttare la modalità live, con un buon parlato e chiarezza vocale adeguati agli spettacoli più diversi, dal burlesque alla commedia, messi in scena sul palco tenda.
I produttori hanno risposto consigliando i componenti più adeguati allo scopo, con curve EQ adatte per ciascuna occasione, memorizzate in tre processori di gestione degli altoparlanti DX4008 4-in/8-out dedicati.
La squadra per le installazioni di Mark Damon si è anche trovata ad affrontare la sfida di riequipaggiare il sistema in un ambiente surreale realizzato dall’interior designer della Dakota House of Design, Terri Naylor, che aveva seguito un abbozzo per soffermarsi sul lato più oscuro di Alice Nel Paese delle Meraviglie, con funghi enormi, orologi contorti e cappelli a cilindro.
Incredibilmente privo di alcun cablaggio, una delle più notevoli imprese della Cosmic è stata quella di incassare quattro subwoofer gemelli S8028 RCF Acustica bass reflex 18” nel mobilio del pavimento preesistente, creando una rete cardioide dietro sei griglie metalliche.
Sopra, a livello della galleria, quattro dei cluster d'angolo RCF di accoppiati recinti 500W di dispersione ristretta 60° x 40° RCF Acustica C5212L a due canali, sono angolati verso il basso sulla pista da ballo mentre, strategicamente posizionati intorno alle parti più periferiche del locale, ci sono 14 speaker Acustica C3110 10'' a due canali e un subwoofer S8015 che provvedono ad un suono pieno, assicurando persino la copertura senza hotspotting.
Otto amplificatori RCF DPS Classe 3000 HD (2 x 1700W RMS / 2 Ohms) sono stati assegnati, quattro per ogni cluster medio-alto e subwoofer S8028, mentre cinque amplificatori di potenza RCF HPS 2500 Class H ( 2 x 1400W RMS / 2 ohms) alimentano gli altoparlanti infill C3110, con un canale che alimenta gli altoparlanti preesistenti sul soffitto del locale.
In fine, per completare la cabina DJ molto specificata, un paio di monitor RCFNX M10-A medio-alto attivi ed un subwoofer ART905-AS attivo forniscono al DJ un suono di riferimento di alta classe.
“Considerata la somma spesa sulla tecnologia, il suono è assolutamente magnifico,” afferma il direttore generale di Wonder Land, Jay Davidson. “E’ di molto superiore ai sistemi degli altri club in cui ho lavorato.” Davidson ha anche lodato la qualità e precisione complessive dell’installazione di Cosmic Electronics.
“Questa tecnologia integrata è capace di fornire un’esperienza unica di suono ed illuminazione ad una nuova generazione di discotecari che non hanno mai provato questo genere di dinamica”.
Stephen Thomas ha poi aggiunto, “No Saints sta compiendo un percorso ben preciso, ed avere gente di talento che capisce bene il mercato dei nightclub rende questo percorso più interessante e più divertente. Wonder Land si tratta di pura evasione dalla realtà. E grazie alla versatilità di questo sistema audio, abbiamo ottenuto quello che ci serviva e anche di più”
