TAKTONS 2022: The Competition, The Show, The Excellence

TAKTONS 2022: The Competition, The Show, The Excellence

For the first time, the Taktons took place in the new building of RTV Vojvodine.

On October 26th – 29th, 2022 the competition of sound recordings of public services will be held in the new RTV office building in Novi Sad. Along with the competition, the event will host a professional audio equipment exhibition, as well as the Sixth scientific-professional conference in the field of acoustics and audio techniques.

This event is especially dear to us, not only because of its significance to our field of work but also because our CEO Dejan Todorović is one of the co-founders of the conference. The competition aims to gain insight into creative achievements in the field of sound recording in the past two years and to provide a professional evaluation of the technical quality of sound recordings based on uniquely pre-defined subjective and objective parameters. The competition contributes to the promotion of program production and is a challenge to improve the knowledge and skills of program creators of various contents.

Our team at Dirigent Acoustics kindly invites you all to visit this year’s TAKTONS and get to know us a bit better at our exhibition stand!

Yes, we proudly participated in the new building project from the beginning until today, and the story continues. And today, this autumn, we were the general sponsor of the Taktons.

And how was the Taktons this year?

Well, the general sponsor made it great!

Why?

Let us start with the exhibition - the booth.

When you enter the new building of RTV, our booth is hugging you 🙂 We met all your senses with the great atmosphere, incredible visuals, magic taste of the finest chocolate, smooth texture of the just-out-the-printing-press brochures, and euphonious sound.

And what could the visitor see and hear at the booth?

@Reinhold Friedrich demonstrate the AVATUS, NEXUS and StageNET to the crowd

How about cutting-edge technology: StageTec AVATUS, NEXUS, and StageNET AV over IP made simple with DirectOut and Audinate #AoIP solutions.

The finest PMC loudspeakers.

DPA, Schoeps and Microtech Gefell microphones.

Reference SVANTEK SVAN 979 SLM, bestselling SV307A and finest engineering SV200A automatic noise monitoring stations and SoundPLAN software.

Оur in-house development - the world's first large-diaphragm #graphene microphone, graphene MEMS microphone and KSI software.

Commercial and innovation projects with an emphasis on our H2020 RIA BorderUAS project, where we develop the most sophisticated acoustic sensor and Innovation Fund aSTAMIN project.

Impressive. Anything besides the booth?

In RTV Studio 4 on the second floor, we established the most sophisticated audio system: Awesome Stage Tec Aurus audio mixing console with NEXUS and Pyramix and the critical reference PMC8.2 stereo mid-field studio monitors. Furthermore, during the show, we organised in Studio 4 a "hands-on" selection for real gourmands, including the interactive lecture "Role of the reference recordings in music production" with Faculty of Dramatic Arts Belgrade prof. Dejan Pejovic, his assistant Sanja Duricic and the eminence of music production in the region, Mr Voja Aralica.

Great, congratulations!

Thank you, but ... that's not all.

Is there something more?

Absolutely. We participated in the Sixth International Conference in Acoustic and Audio Engineering with seven papers related to our research.

So this is it... or not?

Not yet. With our partner Stage Tec GmbH, we were awarded the best-rated RTV centre (this year, RTS with five first places) with the cutting-edge portable audio mixing device - Nexus Compact valued at 5.000,00 EUR!

That is awesome!

And...

Say no more!

I will finish with this. We organised a concert in the Novi Sad City Concert Hall. For all our friends, sound-lovers, in the beautiful concert hall of sumptuous acoustics, designed by our CEO Dejan Todorovic, we hosted a concert with the "Gvardia" Orchestra. Special thanks to Isidor Bajic Music School (director assistant Tatjana Vukmanovic), the City of Pozarevac (mayor assistant Nenad Petrovic) and the "Gvardia" Orchestra (artistic director Teodora Dimitrijevic).

Vibrant New Addition to Our Team

Vibrant New Addition to Our Team

We are happy to announce that our company has become bigger and better! We are glad to introduce you to Nataša Radovanović, the newest member of our team.

Before joining our team she worked as a teacher of Acoustics and Audio engineering at the High School of Music in Požarevac, department of Sound Design. Also, she worked at MOS-AV as a Project and AV engineer, participating in the design and implementation of AV systems for cruises. She joined our team in 2022 as an Acoustics and Audio Engineer, and her responsibilities concern sound insulation, noise control and modeling, acoustic design, noise, and vibration mitigation, and audio system design and implementation.

Nataša received her Master of Science degree from the Department of Audio-video technologies at the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade in 2014. In 2021 she enrolled in another master’s program in Vibro-Acoustic Engineering at the University of Novi Sad.

Advanced SoundPLAN training at Provia d.o.o.

After two years, we again visited Naklo, Slovenia, to hold another advanced SoundPLAN training course for Provia’s talented young engineers.

This time topics for the training course were:

  • industry noise measurements, monitoring and modeling, and
  • CNOSSOS-EU strategic noise mapping.

Thanks to Matjaž Brezavšček of Provia d.o.o. for the repeated trust!

In this video we present to you the SoundPLAN 3D animation that was a part of the noise study we have provided for the Belgrade Waterfront, that showcases a tram crossing over the Old Sava Bridge in Belgrade. We recommend you turn on your sound to fully immerse yourself in the experience!.

Listen carefully, the future is just behind the corner!

Inspiring week of SoundPLAN and Acoustics Sessions at Dirigent Acoustics

It was exciting to explore the SoundPLAN horizons with Magnus Frydenlund of Sound View Instruments AB Sweden. Magnus already had excellent skills in SoundPLAN, and he put a true challenge in front of my “little grey cells” to respond to all of his queries.

I hope that Magnus returns home with good memories from Belgrade and Serbia and, satisfied with the knowledge he gained.
