Located in Bradford on Avon UK, the Wiltshire Music Centre was founded in 1998 and funded by a National Lottery award via the Arts Council.

The purpose-built 300-seat concert hall has recently undergone a major upgrade to its audio systems in partnership with Autograph Sales & Installations.

Autograph’s new business engineer Phil Nicolaou, explains: “The centre is a modern performance space that hosts a diverse range of music, from acoustic and orchestral works through to jazz, world music, opera and choral works, so it’s a good test for an installed sound system.”

“Having assessed the space, the available budget and the intended use of the kit we realised that EM’s new Halo-C was just about perfect in every respect. Our design uses a compact left-right flown design where each side comprises five EM Acoustics Halo-C line-source elements and one Halo-C Sub.“

The entire system runs off eight Lab.gruppen IPD-Series power amplifiers, featuring a latest-generation DSP engine equipped with up to a total of 40 real-time, multi-slope parametric EQs along with adjustable gain, input and output delay, and both high- and low-pass filters adjustable to any frequency.

Phil continues: “The IPDs make this kind of installation so much easier, more versatile and cost-effective. No outboard controllers are needed because all the processing for the loudspeakers is done within the amplifiers, and because they also provide Ethernet-based networking we can tune and control the whole system remotely if necessary.”

“The centre already owned an Allen & Heath GLD-80 digital mixing console, and to expand the system and deliver a whole new level of control we specified and supplied a new multi-media card for the console, plus two iDR Out digital expanders / audio breakout modules.”
