At the legendary studio space formerly known as RCA Studio A, some of the Southeast’s leading engineers, system integrators, entertainers and more gathered to experience the RoomMatch® system live and in person
Framingham, Massachusetts, May 7, 2014 – Recently in Nashville, Tennessee, Bose® Professional Systems held a three-day series of events demonstrating its RoomMatch® modules. Presented in collaboration with studio designer/system integrator Steve Durr, these educational sessions were held at Ben’s Studio, the historic Music Row studio space formerly known as RCA Studio A and now operated by singer-songwriter and producer Ben Folds. The demonstrations featured in-depth discussions of RoomMatch systems – including product philosophy, design parameters and technical specifications – and attendees were encouraged to move freely throughout the venue to experience the RoomMatch system’s highly specific and precise coverage patterns during live performance and playback of contrasting tracks selected by Durr to highlight the system’s range.
A special highlight of this series was the evening of the second day, which featured a live performance from a group of Nashville-based musicians assembled as The Cunningham Willis Consortium (mixed by Durr) attended by leading engineers, system integrators, entertainers, management, press and more. The group was able to demonstrate the system’s range with a wide variety of musical styles, including rock, R&B, gospel, folk and more, with a number of different singers sharing lead vocals while Durr mixed as front-of-house engineer.
For these demos, the following RoomMatch modules were hung above the stage at Ben’s Studio: two RM7010’s, two RM9010’s, two RM9020’s, two RM12020’s and two RMS218 subs. Six RMU208 modules were used as floor monitors for the band. Five Bose PowerMatch® PM8500N amps provided amplification for the system. Processing was handled by a Bose ControlSpace® ESP-88 engineered sound processor and CC-64 Control Center.
“It is really hard to describe in words how pristine the audio is from a Bose RoomMatch system – you must actually experience it for yourself,” stated Durr. “RoomMatch is the most musical, most enjoyable speaker system that I have worked on, and from my perspective as an engineer and designer, I felt that it was important to let people hear and experience a RoomMatch system for themselves first hand. Our Nashville event clearly let attendees hear what is possible from a PA system if it is designed properly, and Bose totally nailed it with RoomMatch.”
