Neutrik USA (Lakewood, N.J.) recently donated a variety of audio test and measurement equipment to the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. Equipment of note included a MiniSPL calibrated, battery-powered measuring microphone; a Minilyzer ML1 analog audio meter; and a Digilyzer DL1 digital audio meter.

"This bus is involved in such a variety of events throughout the year, and it makes stops at such a range of venues--each with differing sound qualities--that it's sometimes difficult to fully anticipate the sound system and acoustic challenges that await us," said Brian Rothschild, executive director for the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus and John Lennon Songwriting Contest. "With this measurement equipment from Neutrik, we're even more confident that we are providing top-notch audio services to students selected to participate in workshops on the bus and at events at which the bus serves as a stage and sound system."

Neutrik has been closely involved with the bus for several years; recently, the two organizations collaborated on a day-long event of recording, live music, education and community involvement held in New Jersey. The event was part of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and the day ended with a live, three-hour location broadcast on a local rock radio station. Local musicians were given the chance to record their own songs using the bus' state-of-the-art recording equipment, and the recorded tracks were played on the air during the live broadcast.

A full-service mobile-recording facility, the bus is outfitted with traditional musical instruments, as well as current and state-of-the-art recording and performing technologies. The interior is divided into two separate recording environments: The front studio offers the ability to produce multimedia projects and can demonstrate an array of audio and video components, with visitors involved in the recording and editing of original material. The back studio is a traditional setup for bands and remote recordings of concerts and special events. It features a full range of instruments, including guitars, basses, keyboards and drums, as well as an onboard P.A. system, enabling performances on the side of the bus.
