    audio measurement
    Ken DeLoria 03/06/13 09:57 AM,
    Last time out (here), we looked at early forms of audio measurement equipment, including chart recorders, heterodyne analyzers, and real-time analyzers (RTAs). Now let’s pick it up with fast Fourier transform analyzers (FFTs), which are still in widespread use the world over in a variety of forms. In addition to accurately characterizing audio signals, FFTs are used for vibration analysis, order analysis of rotating machinery, RF and microwave measurements, and many other purposes. One could say they’re the gold standard… View this story

    The Church of the Greater Faith in New Albany, Indiana, is an active and forward-thinking Pentecostal congregation that has been growing by leaps and bounds, thanks in no small part to their contemporary approach to worship. Indeed, Greater Faith’s rapid growth has been a source of both joy and challenges, and as their numbers have swelled, their modest 700-seat sanctuary now hosts two Sunday morning services, with a third service added in the afternoon. The peaked, metal A-frame structure has… View this story

    “Hi, my name is Bob.
