studio 54, The Debut of the SBS Electronics Iso-Q2
 
SiriusXM goes SBS

http://investor.sirius.com/releasede...leaseID=604941

Next Tuesday Oct 18th 2011 SiriusXM will be reopening Studio 54 for 1 more night to celebrate the Studio 54 radio station. They are bringing in the orig players, The orig Architect Scott Bromley, Managers Michael Overington, Doorman Marc Benecke and many more from Studio.

It has been a real treat to work with all these amazing people and the amazing staff at Sirius. Such a Honor to approach this room in its raw state and to work with this orig team to bring it back to life for 1 more night, only once in a lifetime will i get this orig team to work with in this special building, i am truely honored and blessed to hve this chance.

Its amazing how much the SBS Slammer at System has brang to SBS which is what got me this account, the president told me he wants a hifi system and if he has to sacrifice the look with big speakers on the floor because that what will sound the best thats what he wants, great to work with a guy that knows what he wants lol.

Working the last 6 weeks with the guys at Sirius have been amazing its nice to be in the corp meetings at Sirius and in production meetings in this raw space Studio 54. They are all concerned about everything they do works around the sound system so it sounds the best it can. It has been nice to get a phone call today from the President of Sirius thanking me for making everything so easy for them to understand and there life so easy its been a breeze for them they rarely have it with a vendor they say.

The Debute of the SBS Electronics Iso-Q2

For such an amazing event i have sped up production on this amazing new processor, and to be able to debute it in THIS Space with the orig djs from Studio 54 Nicky Siano and a few others and feed the board for the live feed on Sirius this amazing music thru this KILLER new processor for all to hear & having these djs hands on the SBS Iso-Q2 is even more amazing..

I will start a new thread soon on the Iso-Q2 soon with pre production spy pic, specs, feat, dimensions, warranty and prices.

i will be posting raw space pics of Studio 54 on my Facebook page and then dressed up party pics with the system pics on my Facebook page, ill put a few on wave for you guys to check out

Scott Bromley is such a genious he is designing the inside like he orig did, and the manger Michael is such a pleasure to work with, they are all excited to work with me, when i introduced myself they said we know who u are and all your about and excited to work with you, and hear a big Analog system again, they said the did there research on me, nice to hear this from the veterans, and i thought they didnt know me lol. Turns out after Michael and i spoke we realized we worked with each other in the past...

They are putting so much into this Marc Benecke is really a great guy, and has been going over every detail to make sure its genuine Studio for the party and everything is rt.

I am so excited to be able to debute the SBS Iso-Q2 for this party too, and with the broadcast feed coming from the SBS Iso-Q2 for everyone to hear is an amazing debute for a product. Should be a unreal party.

Cant wait

Shorty, It's great that you are supplying the sound system for this memorable night. . . Congrats. But for it to be authentic 54, who is supplying the drugs ? Not the new kind but the back in the day kind. Somebody better call Steve.

i will be posting raw space pics of Studio 54 on my Facebook page and then dressed up party pics with the system pics on my Facebook page, ill put a few on wave for you guys to check out



from the space and they pulled an entire light show 720 ch worth of lighting, new and orig fixtures of Studio 54, which i feel is the best show, old and new, keeps the show fresh..

Got so much compliments, from Nicky Siano, Jellybean, Aviccii loved the system and was in heaven did not wanna stop playing, Leroy Washington and people in the crowd were so happy with the sound.

Leroy told me some amazing stories when they put Studio together, said it is an acoustical nightmare, he told me how long it took to get the room really rt. How much trouble they had with the room in those days, the first thing he told me was this room is a disaster to tune and get rt he said good luck with this space lol.

He couldnt believe what this system was doing in this space, Leroy was there when i was real timing it, and was shocked within the hour time they gave me, i had only 1 hour to tune this huge theatre how it sounded. He said THIS is all Analog ?? i said yes except cd players ofcourse, he said any boom boxes, or 3bx processors like that? i said nope,,, just the prototype SBS Iso-Q2 he said ya that piece sounds sweet cant wait to play with that bad boy. Leroy said and your your getting this much freq out of these old records without and processors like that i said yup, AND you have a rane 2016 in here????, i says yup, thats what Nicky wanted to play on lol, he said man your really got it going on. i take my hat off to u, i said thanks im just happy you love it, cause U really know this room, he said yup and you got the mids to have the sweetness they had in here, he said you did your thang, i thanked him again

Once the night began Leroy was saying how its allll there you hear all the proper harmonies in the source no holes in the source, and i did such an amazing job and was so nice to meet me. After he played on the set, he said it was such a pleasure to play on such a fine system and he is looking forward to playing on a SBS system in the future, so i said next time your in town you need to come to System to check out the Slammer, and because of that room in LIC is how i got this account to do sound @ Studio. he said if thats the room that got me the shot here then that system MUST be good, then i def need to hear it.

Jellybean Tweeted on the sound last night at Studio ,

Dino replied and commented
Dino Calvao yes agree


Got one of the biggest compliments from Michael Overington the manager from the orig Studio 54 at the end of the night, telling me how amazing it sounded, he hasent heard or fealt sound like this in 30 yrs and im the best, and is going to speak to Ian Schrager about me doing sound in there hotels, they need systems in rooms that move air, i said i love moving air, he said i know i been on the floor all night lol.

I had a few flash backs, stood in some of the same places on the floor watching the lights come down like i used to in awe and where i wld hang in the mezzanine i used to back in the day.

Got so many compliments from Nicky, Leroy & Jellybean On the SBS Elec Iso-Q2, they were so excited it was the world premiere grand showing of this amazing piece in Studio 54 and broadcasted thru it, they said they were so pleased with it and so happy to be the 1st ones to use it in a club.

Ill attach a couple pics here but the entire rebuild of this space will be on my facebook page..

The one thing that really brang this back from the behind the scenes perspective in the night of the party was them calling the cues when they need to raise the lights up and down cueing every lighting moment step of the way, that was how they did it back in the day, guys with head sets cueing the light man and the prop crew t do everything on the spot so it all worked at the rt time rehearsed, from the steamers coming down to cueing the snow blizzard to the man on the moon coming down to the snuff going up his nose ;-)

This was 1979 production with KILLER sound all over again.

for those on my facebook page the entire build out of space, light show, unpacking the man on the moon with coke spoon, the orig sun set up, from a bare space to entire space being full of lights, to the system pics is there,

I will post party pics soon, only friends can see this folder.

Mistick Krewe 10-26-2011 06:19 PM

so, i was listening to the party on the studio54 channel this past weekend...

why were there so many drop outs of the signal and static? to protect the mix from being recorded off of the broadcast and archived/traded by the audience?

after a while, i just turned it off.... doesn't seem right to have a paid subcription to a service to listen to audio drops and static...

soundmanshorty 10-26-2011 07:31 PM

interesting, my father

Listened to the broadcast and had no issues

Mistick Krewe 10-26-2011 08:59 PM

Must have been environmental interference then....
Bummer...

atf104 10-26-2011 11:33 PM

Was funny as the other day Stern talked about this for like 15 minutes because he was pissed they threw this event without asking him due to it being corporate sponsored and it cost a lot of money and apparently got no press besides a small article in the Post or something like that...
