FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waves Audio Plug-ins Process Passion 2013

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, January 21, 2013 Waves Audio, a leading provider of audio DSP solutions for professional, broadcast, and consumer electronics audio markets, is proud to have been the plug-in developer of choice for FOH engineers at Passion 2013. Passion Conferences, founded by Louie Giglio in 1997 “as a means of reaching the 20+ million university students in the world for the glory of God,” has become one of the world’s largest gatherings of Christian young adults. Held in Atlanta, Ga., this past January 1-4, Passion 2013 drew a record crowd of 60,000 college students representing more than 2,000 universities from 56 countries, who packed into the Georgia Dome for four days of prayer, inspirational speakers, worship and efforts to end human slavery (http://www.enditmovement.com/). WavesLive artists Jeff Sandstrom and Stephen Bailey mixed FOH at Passion 2013 using VENUE consoles (two Profile consoles at FOH and one at Broadcast) and the Waves Mercury and Studio Classics Collection bundles. Artists who performed included such acts as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Crowder, Kristian Stanfill, Christy Nockels, Charlie Hall, Jesus Culture, Lecrae and Kari Jobe. Aside from the live music, the event was also streamed live and recorded for a live album, and Waves tools helped the engineers every step of the way.

Sandstrom, who has worked as FOH for Chris Tomlin, Passion City Church, Israel Houghton and New Breed, stated, “Thanks to Waves for supporting my work at Passion 2013. Waves LoAir enabled me to get great separation between the kick drum and the bass guitar, despite being in a huge space like the Georgia Dome. The ability to dial in those low frequencies really helped add clarity and definition to the bottom of my mix. Also, Vocal Rider was an ideal solution in an environment where several worship leaders sing at the same time, and back off their mic's frequently, allowing the audience to take over. Vocal Rider takes a lot of the guesswork out of it for me, helping to automate some of those fader moves, so I can concentrate on the main vocal.”

Bailey, who mixed as FOH Engineer for Matt Redman, added, “Waves makes it easy for me to get where I want to be much faster, giving me more time to focus on the musicality of what I'm mixing.”
