Louisville, KY (January 5, 2007)–The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts is a versatile venue, hosting everything from improv comedy to the Louisville Orchestra performing the score from the popular Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Bringing all that variety to the people are five Midas mixing consoles (Venice 320, XL200, Heritage 1000, Heritage 2000, Heritage 3000), and a recently added a rack of four Klark Teknik DN1248 Plus active analog microphone splitters and an additional rack with a single DN1248 Plus is also on hand.
Ted Subotky, head audio engineer at The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, with the Midas & KT equipment that keeps the KCPA sounding world-class. “We handle everything from Presidential conventions to rock concerts to lectures,” said David Doukas, audio department manager, “along with a handful of annual television broadcasts, so we need a mic splitter to deliver reliability, high sound quality and flexibility. And, as a Midas house, we’ve set ourselves a high sonic benchmark, so the Klark Teknik DN1248 Plus splitters–having Midas Heritage-derived preamps and, being the ‘FM’ version, balanced transformers on every output–were the obvious choice. No other product could offer the sonic clarity we’re used to here.”
Doukas and Ted Subotky, head audio engineer, assembled four DN1248 Plus splitters in a custom rack with multi-connectors. The rack is wired with all four sets of 48 outputs interconnected, ready for splitting into any number of FOH, monitor, recording and multi-purpose mic configurations. Also included is a rack-mounted powered monitor, configured to PFL any of the 48 splitter channels utilizing the Solo Link feature of the DN1248 Plus splitter.
