Last week our tech team at Bramlett AV helped out the University of Oklahoma College of Fine Arts just in time for this month's opera production! The Reynolds Performing Arts Center was in desperate need of an update from analog to digital sound and we provided the perfect solution. In order to optimize the performance space with an increase of inputs and lower costs we installed a Soundcraft Si Performer 3 and digital-snake Compact Stage Box. The new setup will provide the OU Renolyds PAC with a whopping 64 channels to mix with dedicated processing on each channel, allowing them to remove their aging analog outboard gear.
For any tech people out there, you know a move from analog to digital can be a huge jump when running a sound console. We spent two hours with the crew from Reynolds Performing Arts training them in how to rethink producing a live performance utilizing the power and features of the Si Performer 3, covering everything from configuration to sound check. In addition to their new board, we brought our demo board so everyone on the team could get hands on training with this cool new technology.
We are excited to have done this just in time for the University Theatre's Falstaff Opera. This year the Opera will run from
March 7th - 10th at the Reynolds Performing Arts Center inside the historic Holmberg Hall on the OU campus.
