The Museum of Television & Radio is upgrading its radio facilities in New York City and Beverley Hills, California.
DakingPlus is donating Daking audio equipment for use in the Ralph Guild Radio Studios, and the company principals – Geoff Daking and Dave Thibodeau – are lending design expertise to the renovation project. MRT Director of Engineering Doug Warner is acting as project manager for the renovation.
According to Daking, the studios will be fitted with a Daking Mic-Pre IV, two Mic-Pre/EQs and two FET compressor/limiters. SAS Audio mixing consoles were selected for both studios, and the Mic-Pre IVs will be intergrated with the consoles for remote control via RS-485.
Digital audio at the radio studios allows for changeovers from one operator or program to the next, which is important as the Ralph Guild Radio Studios are used by traveling radio hosts and programs for remotes with Digidesign Pro Tools systems, Telos phone hybrids, CD players and 360 Systems DigiCart machines.
Bob Heil of Heil Sound is supplying the MTR with a PR40 radio microphone, as well as microphone stands for the rooms.
