Audio-Technica AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone


Taking cues from our BP40 broadcast microphone, the rugged AT2040 dynamic microphone brings professional broadcast-quality sound and style to podcasters and other content creators at an accessible price. The mic’s multistage windscreen combines a nonwoven filter with foam mesh to provide superior internal pop filtering, while its integrated shock mount prevents unwanted noise by attenuating vibration from a boom arm or mic stand. The highly directional pickup (hypercardioid) keeps the sound focused on your voice and helps to minimize unwanted room noise.

WATCHFIRE SIGNS COMPLETES LAS VEGAS FREMONT STREET EXPERIENCE RENOVATION

Fremont Street Experience attracts more than 23 million visitors annually and is adjacent to 10 casinos and more than 60 restaurants. An exciting reveal of the new canopy at full visual capability is planned for New Year’s Eve. Tickets will go on sale beginning November 27.

  • CDL18s Subwoofer (Supports up to 2 CDL12Ps mounted atop)
  • ULT18 Subwoofer (Supports 1 CDL12P atop)
  • AIR18S Subwoofer (Support 1 CDL12P atop)
  • CDL12 Tote Bag
  • CDL12P Rigging System Components

The last of 59 truckloads of digital signage modules left the manufacturing facility at Watchfire Signs in Danville, Ill. recently, closing out the chapter on the renovation of the world’s largest single video screen, Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas. Watchfire Signs, selected last year for the $30 million renovation, completed the project on budget and ahead of schedule for the grand reveal on New Year’s Eve.

Installation is complete on the digital canopy that covers Fremont Street Experience. It is 1,500 feet long and is suspended 90 feet above a pedestrian mall. The first update in 14 years, the new digital canopy is now seven times brighter and four times sharper than the original, making the light show on the canopy vivid even during daylight hours.

Watchfire designed an all-new product for the Fremont Street project that allowed the modules to be cut to fit the existing structure without impacting the information displayed. Perforations in each module also let daylight filter through and air circulate, critical for dispersing heat and illuminating the street below. High contrast materials and an innovative light trapping design combine to make it possible to run content on the canopy during the day – something that was impossible with the old design.

“We had to get very creative to develop a unique product that met all the distinctive needs for Fremont Street, including trimmable modules that fit the canopy’s shape and can handle the extreme desert conditions,” said Steve Harriott, president and CEO of Watchfire Signs. “Interest in this product has been very high and we’re looking forward to using it for other projects.”

The scale of the Fremont Street project was the largest in Watchfire’s history. It included manufacturing and shipping 130,000 sq. ft. of digital signage. The canopy was manufactured in more than 67,000 modules containing 49 million LEDs. A total of 1,054 subframes containing 64 modules each were installed in phases, allowing Fremont Street to remain open during the upgrade.

Since each subframe was manufactured to be installed at a specific spot on the canopy, Watchfire created a special crating and labeling system that arranged frames in a precise order within the shipping crates, making identification on the job site easy.

“The success of the Fremont Street project is proof of what Watchfire stands for. We are a team of innovators, combining new design with in-field excellence in service. This was an all-hands-on-deck project for Watchfire, and nearly every employee was involved in some way,” said Harriott. The Watchfire production facility added optional overtime shifts to accommodate production, enabling experienced Watchfire staff to build the project without the need to hire and train temporary workers. The entire project was completed without impacting the company’s existing sign industry customers.

The new Presonus CDL-P…The cdl but lighter.

CDL12P

Hybrid Point Source/Line Array Constant Directivity Loudspeaker

The result of years of research and development, the PreSonus CDL12P powered loudspeaker combines the best attributes of point source and line array technology using a unique constant-directivity design that radiates a highly focused pattern with consistent SPL throughout the frequency-response range, both on- and off-axis. With the CDL12P, the eight 2-inch high-frequency drivers arc over a single 12-inch woofer, comparable to the coaxial driver configuration found on top studio monitors. The result is better sonic coherence across the entire venue. Regardless of how many CDL12Ps you stack, you’re working with a shared acoustic axis—and non-turbulent sound propagating throughout the room. The result is clear, articulate speech intelligibility and natural music reproduction. The CDL12P is portable and can be used on individually or in an arrayed pair on a tripod stand, atop an 18-inch PreSonus subwoofer, or in a flown installation of up to 6 CDL12Ps in a vertical array, making it a great choice for touring bands and mobile DJs, as well as for fixed installs in small and midsize venues. 

  • Continuous Directivity constant curve array with eight 2-inch cone drivers disperse sound an amazing 120 degrees horizontally
  • 15˚ vertical directivity can be extended from 30˚ up to 90˚ with additional arrayable CDL12Ps
  • 12-inch long-throw LF transducer with 2.5-inch voice coil
  • Low crossover point minimizes comb filtering and enhances line array intelligibility
  • 500 x 500 watts Class D power for high SPLs and lightning-fast transient response
  • Locking AC Connector in and out
  • Balanced XLR input and output
  • Signal, -3 dB, Limiter Protection, and Clip monitoring
  • Easy-to-use DSP Controls: Array Mode (1-6 boxes), 90 Hz High Pass Filter, Sub Mode (Off, CDL18s, ULT18, or AIR18s)
  • 2-position pole mount for use with up to two CDL12P on a tripod or atop an 18-inch PreSonus subwoofer (Note: a CDL18s must be used for when two CDL12Ps are arrayed)
  • Integrated flyware to create an array of up to six CDL12P’s
  • Easy-to-handle, compact form factor and 63 lb. weight

PreSonus Eris Sub8

Compact Studio Subwoofer

The single best subwoofer you can get to put a little boom in your room, the Eris Sub8 is the first subwoofer to join the lauded and best-selling Eris studio monitor line. We called it Eris because it’s been designed from the ground up to be part of the family; it compliments the voicing and frequency response of the modern Eris classics.. The surprisingly loud 100-Watt Eris Sub8 drops down to a molar-rattling 30Hz, allowing you to both rock harder and produce better mixes, as you’ll be hearing an accurate representation of your work. Thanks to robust configuration and I/O, you’ll be able to tailor your Eris Sub8 configuration exactly to your mixing and listening needs. You can connect your existing monitors via ¼” TRS or RCA, set the input level to your liking, and even invert the polarity. Most importantly, you get a High Pass Filter and a Low Pass Crossover control that ensures your Sub8 starts working at the precise low-frequency point where your main monitors stop working. This makes sure you avoid the flubbery, smudged, low-end mess that one hears in redundant, duplicate, redundant bass reproduction that occurs without a crossover.
