Lake gives flexibility to Living Hope
27 July 2012
USA - Featuring a full electric praise band regularly augmented by strings and other acoustic instruments, services at the Living Hope Church's new permanent facility in Piperton, Tennessee are extremely contemporary. When Memphis-based designer/integrator, Elite Multimedia Inc. set out to provide a highly flexible system to meet the needs of Living Hope's growing congregation, they chose Lake's LM 26 signal processor.
"There's a substantial difference in the quality of this system compared to the one they used when they operated as a portable church," explains Wade Russell, lead systems integrator at Elite. "One of the main reasons we selected the Lake LM 26 was the fact that it did 96k AES. We're running AES from a Midas PRO2C console to the LM 26 and the amps, and integrating the Midas and Lake processing was key to creating a very dynamic system that was powerful and had the depth and stereo imaging they were looking for. The variety of customizable filters within the Lake LM 26 definitely helped us achieve that."
The response from both congregants and other engineers has been overwhelmingly positive. "When we made the decision to move into a building of our own, we approached everything with our sound system by saying 'let's go ahead and put the best gear in and make a big impact' and Lake was simply the best," says Living Hope's audio technician, Tim Johnson.
"Not only does it provide a great signal path, but with the built in filtering we were able to get the sound image we were looking for so wherever people sit they have the same experience. People who don't know a lot about audio know that they love what they hear, and people who do can't get over the how crystal clear the sound is. You're hearing true, clean signal at 96k and the detail of every instrument. Literally, you feel like you're up on stage with the musicians."
