Brooklyn, NY (October 16, 2012)—For Barbra Streisand’s two shows at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY last weekend, New Jersey and California-based M3 (Music Mix Mobile) was hired to provide equipment to record the concerts, including processing plug-ins from Waves Audio.
Grammy and Emmy award-winner David Reitzas, who has worked as Streisand’s engineer for a number of years, utilized M3’s array of Waves plug-ins, including the Renaissance Vox, Renaissance Axx, Renaissance Compressor, MV2 Dynamics Processor, TrueVerb and H-Delay. Waves plug-ins were applied to many of the 190 inputs that Streisand’s orchestra, band and 60-member choir required on the Barclays stage.
“This is an amazing show by an amazing artist,” states Joel Singer, Engineer-In-Charge at M3, which was also on hand to record select shows on Streisand’s 2007 tour. “Ms. Streisand is using all live musicians; there will not be one single tape track at these performances. And we’ll be using Waves plug-ins on many of the inputs, from the 18 vocal microphones we’ll have on the choir to the string and horn sections. It will be processed by Waves, because Waves is that good.”
Asked why M3 has been so committed to Waves over the years, Singer replies, “Because Waves understands the comfort zone we all look for when we embark on a high-profile audio project like this. We know what we want things to sound like and Waves gets us there. You know when you walk into a control rooms and see certain things, like a familiar set of monitors, that you’ll be in your comfort zone and will be able to do your best work. That’s what Waves does for us.”
