L-Acoustics Elevates the Sound of The Flyer - San Francisco at Pier 39 posted: 15/05/2019

The Flyer - San Franciscoat Fisherman's Wharf's Pier 39 features an L-Acoustics loudspeaker system specified by Qu bec-based Triotech

This kinetic and immersive experience, created by Triotech and located on one of the city's most iconic spots, celebrates the unique character and charm of the Bay Area and gives visitors a virtual bird's eye view of the town with a truly cinematic soundtrack

The Bay City will never again seem the same once it's been experienced through The Flyer - San Francisco at Fisherman's Wharf's Pier 39. The new flyover theater attraction gives both tourists and locals alike a bird's eye view of the city using cinematic artistry and state-of-the-art HD film footage captured with the help of drones and helicopters, and blended with computer-generated imagery. As spectacular as the video is, though, visitors may be even more dazzled by the attraction's audio thanks to an engaging cinematic soundtrack played back through a high-impact, high-fidelity sound system from L-Acoustics.

The soundtrack and sound effects were written, created and produced by Mathieu Vachon, audio director for Triotech, the Qu bec-based company behind The Flyer - San Francisco. Triotech is quickly establishing itself as a major player in the global amusement and theme park industry, and its latest creation follows a fast-paced point-of-view narrative that both documents the city and brings it vividly to life using the same jib, track, drone and other types of cameras employed by Hollywood blockbusters. The sound had to be big to match, which, according to Vachon, is why L-Acoustics was the ultimate choice for this high-profile project.

At The Flyer - San Francisco, three coaxial L-Acoustics X12 loudspeakers are positioned in an LCR array across the front of the attraction's theatre, behind its massive 1,100-square-foot (50x22) screen. Two rows of tiny 5XT speakers are mounted on the rear walls for the surround elements-one pair per side, covering and upper and lower seats-while four SB18 subwoofers compete the discrete 5.1 system, which is powered and processed by two LA4X amplified controllers. Montr al-based Solotech integrated the audio complement for Triotech in conjunction with L-Acoustics Andre Pichette, who performed the final system calibration via the manufacturer's LA Network Manager software.

The new attraction's L-Acoustics system delivers a highly engaging audio experience for its audiences

When The Flyer experience begins, 28 seated guests, suspended on an active-motion platform, embark on an immersive, high-definition flight through some of the Bay Area's most iconic landmarks and neighbourhoods, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Marin Headlands, Chinatown, the Castro and more, propelled by Vachon's energetic score brought to life on the L-Acoustics sound system.

The soundtrack is extremely dynamic and exciting, and it also follows the emotions of the film very closely, says Vachon, who adds that it took three months to envision, compose, record and mix. But once we were finally on site at Pier 39 and I heard it played through the L-Acoustics sound system, I thought, Wow!' It was even better than in the studio. The score is huge and orchestral, and these loudspeakers make it feel so alive. The highs are crisp and clear, and the subs deliver a nice solid low end. Combined with the video, the final result is breathtaking, and the L-Acoustics system is a big part of The Flyer's success.
