Pynx Pro has has partnered with Fest-I-Val Stages to create BAM! Studios in Brantford-Brant, Ontario. BAM! Studios is a temporary studio space that invites bands, DJs, agents, promoters, individuals and corporations to rent the space for virtual events or a video recording space. The reason that Pynx Pro and Fest-I-Val Stages have partnered up to produce this temporary studio space is because of public gathering restrictions due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
These gathering restrictions have shut down traditional concert halls, music venues, bars and theatres which has left local musicians without a lot of options for venues to play inside of. BAM! Studios is eager to bridge the gap so that musicians can get back to playing music in front of an audience, even if that audience is viewing remotely over the internet.
BAM! Studios is a turn key virtual concert event space that bands, agents, labels, artists, individuals or companies can rent so they can live stream any type of performance. We have opened it up for virtual fundraising galas, sales meetings and all sorts of other virtual events.
The studio itself is a concert space with full stage production, sound, lighting, and video that has both recording and on site live streaming capabilities. The install includes a full size QSC KLA12 Line Array with QSC KW181 Subwoofers for it’s main sound system which is driven by a Midas M32 digital audio console.
The monitor package consists of EV ELX112P active wedges. For lighting, we have chose the Martin MH1 LED moving head profile fixtures which have 175 watt LED engines which is accompanied by 12 Lumi Hpar90 LED par cans for rear wash. For conventional lighting, we are utilizing Chauvet Slim Par Pro VWs. The video component is driven by a Roland VR 4HD with a Mac Book Pro for recording/streaming and for cameras we are using 4 Panasonic TM900s with Manfrotto Fluid Head stands.
BAM! Studios is a temporary studio space that is available for rentals during Winter 2021.
