    It’s not hard to put a finger on the popularity of The X Factor, which recently completed its first season in the United States. The top-rated singing competition TV show (which aired on FOX) pits contestants against one another to see which pop singer has that certain indefinable, yet undeniable star quality—that all-important “X Factor.” To provide high-impact audio on the set of The X Factor, Valencia, California-based ATK Audiotek installed JBL VerTec line arrays to head a system designed… View this story

    An interesting “audio related” item we ran across on YouTube today: “This recording of the 2011 Japanese earthquake was taken near the coastline of Japan between Fukushima Daiichi (the nuclear reactor site) and Tokyo. The initial blast of sound is the 9.0 mainshock. “As the earth’s plates slipped dozens of meters into new positions, aftershocks occurred.
