The historic Deutsches Nationaltheater in Weimar, Germany has added a TiMax2 SoundHub-R32 system matrix and playback server to complement its recent purchase of a new Studer Vista8 console. The new system replaces a legacy TiMax Classic matrix, paired with an old analogue Studer, which had been in daily use for the past ten years. The new TiMax SoundHub system was purchased from distributor Pro Audio Technik following on-site demos by the company’s TiMax technical sales specialist Matthias Ziegenberger. The Weimar sound system consists of 12 classic Meyer UPA theatre cabinets and 20 compact Meyer UPM boxes. The main PA comprises an LCR system consisting of a dozen UPA’s above the stage, with another eight as delays and fills. The UPMs are mounted around the audience as delay fills and for surround sound effects. The SoundHub handles system management, EQ, zone control, and delay-matrixing of the entire distributed speaker system. Multiple sets of image definition delay-matrix presets also provide a library of on-stage vocal localisation and surround sound effects pan points for the varied show configurations that the theatre has to accommodate. Head of sound Moritz Kobel commented: "With the TiMax SoundHub we can manage even complex speaker setups very easy. That’s especially useful in the Weimar theatre, as we have constantly changing staging setups which have an influence on the speaker setup as well. Another big advantage is that we are able to acoustically adapt dynamically to complex movements and changing position by the actors. This way we can automate movements that otherwise would need a lot of work by hand. “ www.outboard.co.uk
