imgBoston, MA (February 4, 2014)—Berklee College of Music’s 1,200-seat Performance Center (BPC) recently added two new Yamaha Cl5 Digital Audio Consoles to help students, faculty and national entertainment groups produce the many shows held there year round.

A CL5 is positioned at front of house with a second based in Studio BPC located in an area above the theater.

“The BPC looked upon the new CL as the PM1D successor," states Rick Scott, Sales Director, Parsons Audio LLC. “Among features that were appealing to the technical team were the networking capabilities of this generation of Yamaha consoles, along with its Rupert Neve plug-ins within the Premium Rack and integration with Nuendo Live.”

“We had the Yamaha PM1D for eight years, and wanted to make sure we could stay up-to-date with current, commercially available (and currently supported) technology, states Ed Libeartore, A1 at BPC. "We also really wanted to have something with remote iPad control, so we could mix monitors on stage from the FOH console.”

Studio BPC, which regularly multitrack records many of the performance center concerts, is a teaching lab for live performance location recording classes. The studio is fed from a separate split off the on-stage mic snake box, but also receives a feed from the house Dante network for additional options.
