Wuppertal, Germany (May 27, 2020)—Riedel Communications and Remote Recording Network (RRN) recently collaborated to provide a remote mastering service for a live-streamed concert performed by Peter Maffay and local musicians from Steintor-Varietè in Halle, Germany.
The special acoustic concert, which took place on Easter Monday, April 13, was mixed on location by Werner Schmidl and, using RRN’s Remote Mixing facility, mastered remotely by Peter Brandt from Studio Boecker in Cologne. Both locations were connected through the Riedel Remote Operations Center (ROC) in Wuppertal, which served as the communications and signal transmission hub of the operation. From there, ROC engineers monitored communications, remotely configured all signals and transmitted all audio streams between venue and studio.
This method of communication and audio transmission was jointly developed by Riedel and Remote Music Productions, a subsidiary of RRN. “Together with our partners at RRN, we put together a compact plug-and-play system that could be linked to our ROC via a WAN connection,” said Carsten Voßkühler, project manager at Riedel Communications.
“Without having to worry about setup and communications, Peter and his team could fully concentrate on their task at hand — delivering the perfect sound experience to listeners all over Germany. We are happy to play a part in the development of this groundbreaking remote solution, which is both cost-efficient and environmentally friendly for live event recording, mixing and broadcasting,” said Voßkühler.
Brandt, founder at RRN, commented, “Only 4 RU high, this system is ideal for getting the maximum out of FOH mixes and is more than suitable for broadcast and streaming. It was a joint effort from the concert’s FOH engineers, Riedel technology, and the RRN team, and the results were extraordinary.”
