    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Editors note: This article was originally published in 1997, but the information is still relevant today. You can read and comment on the original article here. Reverb is one of the most interesting aspects of digital signal processing effects for audio. It is a form of processing that is well-suited to digital processing, while being completely impractical with analog electronics. Because of this, digital signal processing has had a profound affect on… View this story

    GIK Acoustics has announced a collaboration with Abbey Road Institute, the educational arm of the recording studio. The Abbey Road Institute was launched in London in March 2015 to prepare students for careers in the music industry, operating from purpose-built, newly constructed studio facilities at the Abbey Road site in northwest London. The Institute offers vocationally oriented courses with a mix of theoretical and practical modules in music production and audio engineering. The first intake of students was in September… View this story

    Many studios built in the 1970’s were designed not to have any acoustic influence on the recorded sound produced in them. This was accomplished by over-deadening walls, floors and ceilings so no sound waves (leakage) would reflect and add (or subtract) from the instrument’s original sound waves. Bass traps were purpose-built for controlling sound from electric bass amps, small isolated (and dead sounding) drum booths were mandatory and heavy gobos or baffles were used around all musicians separating them and… View this story

Seraphine is one of the world’s most highly respected rock drummers, once rated by Buddy Rich as one of his favorite young talents. He was the drummer, percussionist and a founding member of the multi-million selling, GRAMMY Award-winning band Chicago. From 1967 to 1990, Seraphine played on and helped produce 18 gold and 13 platinum albums, 50 Top 40 hits (including 20 Top 10 singles) and five number-ones. Danny, and… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Please don’t say soundproofing, if you mean room treatment – and vice versa. I’m happy more people are realizing the influence acoustics has on their listening (and viewing) experience. I know the room is the final component in all entertainment systems (and also the first component, if you’re a musician or recording engineer), and that message is reaching farther every day. So that’s good, right? As with all things, a little info can be dangerous.… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics has provided a key component of an innovative installation – known as “Silent Room” – at the 2016 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, which took place from around March 11 to 20. Those who have experienced South By Southwest know that it can quickly coalesce into a haze of noise over the busy 10 days, so Dutch artist Simon Heijdens created “Silent Room,” an anechoic space filtering out any sound or color. Located in the… 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

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   It’s a truism in standards-testing industries: you can only test for parameters for which you have tests. In the acoustics business that means testing is limited to measurement values which have accurate and repeatable tests, like sound pressure. This is especially important when you consider that hearing – our system of ears and brain – is highly complex, and some sound-perception functions have no equivalent in current test methodologies. Or, put more simply, you can’t… View this story

    The Northeastern U.S. offers many beautiful churches, from Gothic-style buildings to old fashioned meetinghouses. But a true European-style cathedral like the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, Connecticut, is a rarity. The demanding aesthetic and acoustical requirements were key reasons Peter Scandone, Jr., president of New Haven systems integrator PASCOM Sound, chose a Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Gen5 IC32-RN digitally steered line array as the heart of the new system. “I’ve been working in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for… View this story
