Shure Associates pitch in for ‘Chicago Cares’

Related: , , Posted in news on Jul 14, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Shure has announced its Associates participation in the 18th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon, an event that brings more than 6,000 volunteers together to improve Chicago’s public schools.

With images of relief organizations responding to crises in remote regions of the globe appearing on television almost daily, it is all too easy to forget the everyday needs of people in our own neighborhoods. And while massive events require massive responses, the actions of one person can make an important difference on a local level.

Shure Chicago Cares

Recently, dozens of Shure Associates participated in the 18th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon. The event is the city’s largest day of community service, when more than 6,000 volunteers come together to transform public schools and improve learning environments for more than 18,000 Chicago students.

“This was the third year that Shure sponsored the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon, and many of our Associates were repeat participants,” said Vicky Kraft, HRIS Manager at Shure, who volunteered for the third time. “You work hard all day long, but at the end of the day you know that you’ve really accomplished something. The principal, parents, and students at the Academy were very enthusiastic at our arrival and very appreciative of our day’s work.”

More than 40 Shure Associates, family members and friends participated in this year’s event. They were assigned to the Brentano Math & Science Academy, which serves Pre-K through 8th grade students on Chicago’s north side. The volunteers painted eight classrooms, three stairwells, three hallways, and a mural. They also built and painted eight benches and some storage shelves, and painted hopscotch and four-squares on the school’s playground. All of the work was done using donated materials.

“Mr. Shure strongly believed that individual volunteerism is one of the best ways to build stronger communities,” said Sandy LaMantia, President and Chief Executive Officer at Shure Incorporated. “We are inspired by the Associates who gave their time and energy to help create a better place to learn for everyone.”

Shure and Guitar Center Studios Give Musicians Room(s) to Rock

Funding for school music programs is disappearing nationwide, but there’s no shortage of people with a burning desire to sing or play an instrument. Recognizing a need for education, rehearsal, and recording facilities, microphone manufacturer Shure Incorporated is providing microphones and headphones to the growing list of Guitar Center Studios, as the music retailer expands its music education facilities in the U.S.

Guitar Center Studios

“Music education programs are disappearing from public schools, and individual lesson providers are challenged to deliver a broad offering of learning opportunities and tools,” says Tom Hemphill, Director of Guitar Center Studios. To counter this trend, Guitar Center Studios has taken the fundamental elements of music education—learning to play, connecting with peers, rehearsing together, and recording—and made them the cornerstones of a progressive learning pedagogy.

“Guitar Center Studios not only provides best-in-class music education, but a wide range of opportunities to apply that education,” Hemphill continues. “We serve as a community where musicians can learn, meet, rehearse, and record using professional equipment.” The facilities use a subscription model under which students can take advantage of any or all of these resources for one price.

In addition to providing music lessons and training in Pro Tools and Logic software, the program encourages musicians to get together, rehearse, and record themselves. Having access to professional-caliber equipment is a key component of this part of the program, and Shure has outfitted every Guitar Center Studios facility with SM58® handheld microphones, MX395 low-profile microphones and SRH240 professional headphones. “Shure has been a tireless supporter of what we’re doing, and we’re grateful,” says Hemphill. The microphones and headphones enable performances to be recorded easily, allowing musicians to review their performances and identify areas for improvement. “You can walk in, rehearse, and walk out with a CD that you can learn from,” says Hemphill.

“The Guitar Center brand is known and respected by musicians at every level, from beginners to working professionals,” says Abby Kaplan, Sales Director, Western U.S., at Shure Incorporated. “We’re proud to partner with Guitar Center Studios to help develop the next generation of performers.”

RedWirez Marshall 1960A/Celestion G12M-25s, free IR library

RedWirez Marshall 1960A/Celestion G12M-25

RedWirez has released a free impulse library of a Marshall 1960A with Celestion G12M 25-watt Greenbacks.

Ah, the legendary Marshall 1960A. Pretty, ain’t it? With its grill-cloth glistening in the bar-light as this beast muscles out power chords in an amaranthine haze of smoke, hot lights and adoring fans… this cab positively reeks of rock… the raucous, beer-soaked, unapologetic kind. Oh, and it sounds great, too.

It was the first cab we ever sampled and is still one of our favorites, so it seems fitting to release these IRs into the wild on Redwirez’ birthday.

Marshall 1960A IR features

  • Loaded with four, well-traveled 25-watt Celestion G12M “Greenbacks”.
  • 17 industry standard mics, so explore countless tonal possibilities: AKG C414B-ULS, Audix D6, Audix i5, Beyerdynamic M160, Coles 4038, Electrovoice RE20, Heil PR30, Neumann KM84, Neumann U47, Neumann U67, Neumann U87, Royer R121, Sennheiser MD409, Sennheiser MD421, Shure SM57, Shure SM7, TAB-Funkenwerk SM57. The paid version also includes DPA 4007, Neumann U47FET, Sennheiser MD441, Unidyne III 545, Earthworks TC30, Neumann M7 on BLUE Bottle, Neumann M8 on BLUE Bottle.
  • Added IRs of the G12M’s impedance curve at varying degrees of prominince (paid version only). These can be used to capture the effect of a tube amp interacting with the speaker. In general, tube amps have a higher output impedance than solid-state amps. As a result the speaker’s frequency response is shaped to varying degrees by it’s own impedance curve. All of our cabs will be getting this update in the near future.
  • Up to 54 positions per mic for a total of 777 IRs (1048 in the paid version)
  • Uncompromising signal chain that won’t add undesirable color to your sound. Bryston 4B -> Cab -> Mic -> Neve 1073 or Earthworks 1022 -> Prism Orpheus.
  • Edited for better phase coherence allowing you to mix multiple IRs.

The Marshall 1960A/G12M cab is available as a free download (valid email address required).

Thomann's Packaging for 2 Shure N447 needles

Some interesting things I found recently:

# The one thing I don’t like about Thomann

Good example of a company that probably hasn’t heard of green packaging or cradle to cradle yet (at least it doesn’t seem to care much)…

Looza @ Mindboggling writes:

Every few months I need to make a certain hifi-related purchase. My retailer of choice for this is of course thomann.de, hands down the best european retailer for audio, music and hifi-related stuff. Great selection, great prices, amazing service.

However, there is one thing about thomann that really drives me insane now that I experienced it several times.

# My Blofeld + Ableton Live + Lpk25 + AudioCube Couch Potato Setup

Mark @ Modulate This! writes:

I wanted to create a small couch-friendly setup where I could play the Waldorf Blofeld with my little Akai LPK25 Controller and an AudioCube. Here is how I set it all up.

Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder

# cl516: Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder

Calvin got himself an Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder:

Simple setup with a Shure 55SH and the V256 set to HI gain. Segments alternate from internal synth to Vermona Perfourmer as the carrier. I didn't play around too much with the "reflex-tune" or other features. I just like the vocoder part. The audio file has more detailed narration.

Best audio demo I’ve heard in a while.

# Beatstation

Second video of Toontrack's upcoming "Tonal and Percussive, Open Surface, New Generation Virtual Instrument" now available:

Check out the sounds in Beatstation, the new expansion pack format, BTX, and how to use the core library with Audio, MIDI and REX content.

# Exploding piano alarm clock

From Make: Online:

Here's a video of a nifty Exploding Piano Alarm Clock that was recently made in a graduate product design class at MIT. One of MAKE's former interns, Jake McKenzie, was part of the team who created it. They based their project on the traditional piano drop held every spring off the MIT Baker House.

Exploding Piano Alarm Clock
Exploding Piano Alarm Clock

The premise is simple and aggravating: the piano and its color-coded legs explode once the alarm goes off. The user's task is to gather up all the parts and put the legs in their corresponding color slots. All while the alarm annoyingly beeps at you. The rub: the color slots move around, so you have to be agile (and awake) to get the correct legs in the correct slots. A knob on the bottom allows you to adjust the difficulty by speeding up the rate of the color changes.
