    Over the course of my life, I have survived as a scavenger. My own dad, once, called me “the possum king.” A guy who can always find a way to survive. A guy who can live off the stuff nobody else sees value in. Not a title I want to wear, but it kinda fit. This played out as I built up my little production company and studio. When I first started out, I tried to do it the mainstream… View this story

    Editor’s Note: While this article discusses delays in a theater environment, the information can be applied to any situation. In an ideal world, the best system would be a single point source that would cover every single seat in the house at the same level with the same frequency response. This is easy to state, tough to execute. Most theaters have walls, ceilings, domes, balcony boxes and balcony fronts, chandeliers, canopies, sidewall projections, pillars, pilasters, plaster pachyderms, which get in… View this story

    The Church Sound Forum here on ProSoundWeb is a free, on-line resource of information and dialog for individuals working with sound at their church.

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Having been around the AV integration industry for some time, I have witnessed a lot of change—from rapidly eroding product margins to CRT becoming Plasma becoming LCD becoming LED and so much more. We are, without question, in a time of constant change and with that constant change comes both opportunity and challenges for integration businesses. Back in the day when profit margins on hardware were a little more lucrative, our industry… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”—Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride The Twitterverse was hopping last night with news of Canadian singer Grimes being “electrocuted” during a concert in Dublin. (Go here and #Grimes on Twitter.) While she was shocked on stage, she definitely wasn’t electrocuted multiple times. That’s because the word “electrocution” refers to death by electric shock. If she was indeed killed by… View this story

    This article is an excerpt from the book, “Basic Training for the Church Audio Technician.” One thing that often leads to a tech learning about their system quickly is the upgrade or construction process. When gear is replaced or a new system is installed, plenty of opportunities arise to learn quickly. There are few ways to learn faster, than when you are trying to solve a problem. Something failed. Something changed and requires different equipment. New construction that requires a… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: Dennis originally wrote this article in 1986 and was last revised in 1998, yet the information is as relevant now as it was then. John Roberts is one of my heroes. John wrote a regular column for the now defunct magazine Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) entitled “Exposing Audio Mythology.” “Laying to Rest…or at least exposing the false premises upon which they are based…some of the pro audio industry’s more obvious ‘Old… View this story

    Located in the heart of Toronto, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts has hosted a variety of international attractions and stars since opening its doors as the O’Keefe Centre in 1960, featuring Alexander H. Cohen’s production of the pre-Broadway premiere of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot starring Richard Burton and Julie Andrews. Its stage has also hosted a who’s who of music legends such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Diana Ross, and Tom Jones. The mantra of presenting top-shelf live… View this story

    For Sam Berkow, acoustical design, sound measurement, and audio in general are lifetime passions, the ones that ultimately led him to found SIA Acoustics, and later, SIA Software Company, the creator and developer of the SMAART (now stylized as Smaart) tuning and measurement platform that’s had a tremendous impact on professional audio. Over time, Berkow has plied his design talents at iconic performing arts and production facilities across a broad spectrum, among them SFJazz Center in San Francisco, AirShow Mastering… View this story

    Mention column loudspeakers to grumpy old soundmen and the Shure Vocalmaster immediately springs to mind, as every ’70s band used it. But column loudspeakers continue to gain in popularity because they offer a solution for those who need efficiency in the vocal range combined with even coverage and a very slim, unobtrusive profile. Line sources have been around for well more than a half-century. For portable sound applications, audiences tend to be small. Installed systems are often employed in reverberant… View this story
