Los Angeles, CA (October 28, 2015)—Red Bull presents a lot of interesting stuff, whether it’s extreme sports or popular music. When it comes to the latter, many of the acts that it works with wind up visiting Red Bull Studios LA, part of the worldwide Red Bull Studios Network. The well-appointed facility recently added a personal monitoring system from Behringer to its retinue.
Using the Behringer PowerPlay P16 personal monitoring system and HPX6000 headphones allows Red Bull LA to hand off monitor mixing directly to the artists. Studio manager and chief engineer Eric Stenman stated, “We do a lot of tracking of live bands of all sorts, whether it’s string sections, or punk rock, or you name it. Having the personal monitoring system really helps out when I can just send the signals out, and let the artists dial in their own mixes. It saves me a headache, and once people get the process down, it lets them create their own comfort zone.”
The full Behringer P16 system consists of: P16-M 16-channel digital personal mixers; P16-I 16-channel 19-inch input modules with analog and ADAT optical inputs; P16-D 16-channel digital Ultranet distributors, P16-MB brackets and HPX6000 headphones.
Stenman continued, “They sound clean and there are more features than I really expected. So it gives a lot of flexibility, as far as however involved you want to be with dialing in your own mix during tracking; they’ve been great.”
