Hempstead, NY (October 17, 2012)—Last night’s second Presidential debate, held at Hofstra University on Long Island, NY, was loud, boisterous and featured a number of heated exchanges between the candidates. Helping ensure that audiences heard every word inside the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex were a pair of Yamaha DM2000 digital consoles, used for audio control.

Audio production was provided by On Stage Audio (OSA) Las Vegas. Michael Abbott, owner of All Ears, Inc. (Los Angeles) chose a pair of Yamaha DM2000 digital consoles for audio control.

“The dual DM2000s were chosen for the Presidential debate specifically to provide two separate audio streams,” states Abbott. “Size and audio I/O capabilities also played a key role in the set up. We routed six Yamaha AD8HR 8-channel preamps to eight groups: four for the house mix and four for the broadcast pool truck.”

In addition, Abbott said Dugan-MY16 cards were inserted for the 24 Town Hall participant mics along with moderator and candidate microphones.
