GLD’s crowning moment

GLD’s crowning moment

Published: WORSHIP

SWEDEN: The Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace of Stockholm holds mass for the Royal Parish, comprising the Swedish Royal Family and employees of the Court. In addition to the weekly service, the chapel hosts a regular music programme of organ and classical music concerts, as well as Royal events, such as baptisms and weddings which are often broadcast by the media.

With the chapel hosting mass for kings and queens, princes and princesses, and accommodating national events of a grand scale, the A/V equipment is required to be of a certain standard. So, when the chapel’s old analogue mixer was deemed no longer fit for purpose, plagued with a lack of routing options that meant additional equipment had to be hired, Swedish audio services company, Music Solutions Sweden AB, was contracted to install a new digital system. The project specified that the new system should be able to handle live sound reinforcement, providing high quality speech and musical intelligibility, while also being capable of catering for television and radio broadcast.

To meet the required specifications, Music Solutions Sweden AB installed an Allen & Heath’s GLD-80 digital mixing system at the Royal Chapel. ‘We choose the GLD because of its flexibility. It’s a powerful tool for the experienced mix engineer, but also easy to use by novices,’ notes Christoffer Wetterström from Music Solutions Sweden AB. ‘It’s great to be able to lock out inexperienced users from the more integral settings.

‘Another reason we choose the GLD was for the Madi option card,’ Mr Wetterström continues, ‘which makes it easy to send broadcast feeds to the media during special services and Royal events.’

In its standard setup, the GLD-80 can manage the EQ for all room acoustics and speaker delays, In addition to four wireless microphones that are plugged into the back of the console. For events that involve live music, the system is expanded with the addition of two AB168 remote I/O audio racks.

Since installation, the new system has been used during the 70th birthday celebrations for King Carl XVI Gustaf and the baptism of Prince Oscar. ‘With the introduction of GLD, everything has improved,’ adds Mr Wetterström.
