Manchester, TN (June 19, 2006)–Last weekend’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, June 16-18, was a high-tech event with discos, a digital cinema movie theater and multiple computer stops on top of ongoing live performances. Overseeing much of the audio gear for the live performances was Eighth Day Sound using the newest live sound digital loudspeaker processor from Dolby–the Dolby Lake Processor.

The Dolby Lake Processor is a digital signal processing hardware and software system providing loudspeaker management and equalization.
“When we started using Dolby’s Lake Contours and Mesas years ago, we thought the sound quality was great and far beyond other products, but the new Dolby Lake Processors sound even better,” said Jordan Zur, senior product manager and senior audio engineer, Eighth Day Sound. “It is everything we wanted–great flexibility with 4 inputs/12 outputs, simple to use, seamless with digital audio with an automatic audio back-up, no ground bugging, and we don’t have to think about them once they are in. We had three Dolby Lake Processors sitting on the stage at Bonnaroo and one of Dolby’s Lake Contours at the front of house as an EQ.”
