MUSIC MIX MOBILE EMPLOYS WAVES DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT

— Waves’ critically acclaimed bundles allow remote recording specialists Music Mix Mobile to take live recordings straight into post-production with all processing parameters intact, saving time and money while ensuring a great-sounding show —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, December 4, 2009 — The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th Anniversary Concert brought together some of the most legendary names in music, including Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, Dion, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Smokey Robinson, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Aretha Franklin, Lou Reed, Ozzy Osbourne and U2. The concerts took place over two nights, October 29th and 30th, 2009, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and on November 30th were broadcast on HBO. Creating a consistent sonic context for such a wide range of performers was the challenge faced by Music Mix Mobile, a New Jersey/California-based remote facilities company combining the talents of award-winning production professionals and state-of-the-art audio solutions. The Music Mix Mobile team includes industry veterans John Harris, Jay Vicari, Joel Singer, Mitch Maketansky and newly added West Coast-based partners Bob Wartinbee and Mark Linett. For this prestigious concert, they relied on plug-ins from Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions.

The broadcast music mix for the concert was handled by John Harris and Jay Vicari, working out of their M3 truck and also using their M1 Flightpack system; the audio was supervised by Technical Producer Gayle DePoli; and Firehouse Productions provided the sound system, with guest Front-of-House mixers for each respective act. Carl Glanville did the remix in post-production for the broadcast on behalf of Music Mix Mobile.

Waves’ SSL 4000 Collection and V-Series provided vintage EQ, compression, dynamics and other processing, modeled on classic SSL and Neve consoles. But in addition to providing state-of-the-art signal processing, the Waves bundles also gave the process an ergonomic workflow boost. “The whole premise was that we would take the capture of these performances seamlessly from recording to post-production, and the Waves was key to that,” explains Joel Singer, Co-Founder and Vice President of Engineering for Music Mix Mobile. “The settings on all of the processing were part of the Pro Tools sessions, so John and Jay were able to hand the sessions over to Carl just as they had recorded them. When Carl hit play, all the sounds were right there. This is workflow at its finest: saving time and money but never cutting any corners.”

This was the same way that Music Mix Mobile has been able to deliver such pristine performances at other recent broadcast events, including the CMA Awards, the Foo Fighters on VH1 and U2’s performance from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. “We couldn’t do everything we’re able to without the Waves plug-ins – they make the job so much easier,” says Singer. “They’ve become part of our workflow. For instance, the Renaissance Maxx Bundle is a staple of the vocal chain, and the Waves MV360° Surround Dynamics Processor is an outstanding multichannel compressor that’s infinitely tweakable and lets us deliver consistency in 5.1. Waves have become our go-to processors of choice. They’ve become indispensable.”
