The Wolf Trap Foundation’s Filene Center in Vienna, VA Vienna, VA (July 25, 2007)–The Wolf Trap Foundation’s Filene Center in Vienna, VA is a 7,000-seat performing arts amphitheater located in the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, which serves the Washington, DC metropolitan area and hosts approximately 90 music concerts during the summer months, which this year includes artists from the Average White Band to The Zombies. This year, the venue has enhanced its digital audio control capabilities with the installation of three Dolby Lake Processors to manage main front of house left and right, lawn and center cluster speakers. In addition, four Dolby Lake Processors have been installed to optimize all 16 monitor feeds, including the mixer’s cue.
“I love the ease with which I can apply whatever speaker tuning I wish to any one of my mixes,” said John Burke, monitor engineer, Filene Center. “The Mesa EQ filter is a fantastic tool, but it is the pen tablet and software that really helps me the most. The interaction between the drawing of a filter and the change in audio is fantastic. I have used many of the popular DSP-based speaker controllers and their associated software, and this is a whole different level of interface.”
Greg Lukens of Washington Professional Systems supplied the seven new Dolby Lake Processors, which are being used to process onstage Meyer Sound and EV monitors as well as a multi-zoned L-Acoustics house system that is under sophisticated wireless network control.
