Miami, FL (November 15, 2016)—Latin music star Marc Anthony co-founded Magnus Media entertainment agency last year with principal partner/CEO Michel Vega, with an aim of providing artist management, music publishing, digital content creation, video production, and music recording and distribution for Latin content creators. With that in mind, the company’s new Miami headquarters reflects a presentation sensibility with its considerable audio offerings.
The focal point of the facility is its large-scale lounge, which sports a Meyer Sound system, put to use as a sound reinforcement system for live shows and support for video playback and background/foreground music reproduction.
The Meyer Sound installation at Magnus Media was initiated in large part by Anthony’s long-time touring FOH engineer, Jose Rivera. The Meyer Sound system for the 150-person capacity lounge comprises two UPQ-1P loudspeakers, two UPJ-1P and one UPJunior VariO loudspeakers, one 1100-LFC low frequency control element, four MJF-208 stage monitors, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 408 processor. The mixing console is a DiGiCo S21.
Meyer Sound LEO Family systems have been deployed for most of Marc Anthony’s arena shows over the past two years, both in the USA and in South America. A LEO Family system from VER Tour Sound is accompanying Anthony on his current 12-city, 14-show tour of arenas and very large theaters that launched in Las Vegas and wraps up in San Juan, Puerto Rico in December.
The lounge at Magnus Media also serves as a large, live recording space for use in conjunction with the adjacent recording studio. Two small isolation rooms double as songwriting rooms, with the main control room boasting an SSL AWS-900 mixing console and a complete Pro Tools system.
