    This article is provided by Church Audio Video.   Acoustical treatment is something that most studio engineers are quite familiar with. However, many church audio technicians have only a passing understanding of the subject. So rather than telling you what treatment you need for your space, here’s a primer on different types of acoustical treatment. Acoustical treatment is the method by which we control reflections in a space to create the ideal acoustical profile, thereby enhancing audio perception. A reflection… View this story

    Proud of its German heritage, New Ulm, Minnesota, boasts German-style breweries, a 45-foot-tall glockenspiel, a monument to a 9th century German hero-and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. This stately brick church features traditional architecture, with high ceilings, wooden pews, and plenty of plaster and glass. The acoustics are ideal for organ and choir, but speech intelligibility was poor with its old, cobbled-together sound system. That has since been resolved with Fulcrum Acoustics loudspeakers. When the church began adding contemporary music to… View this story

    With its new Meyer Sound CAL column array loudspeakers, the Grand Elysee Hotel in Hamburg, Germany can now provide clarity for both speech and music presentations in the Spiegelsaal (Mirror Room) while also solving a design challenge for the large and reflective space. “With CAL, speech intelligibility at the far back of the full room is excellent,” reports Stefan Gurr, head of event and communication technology for the Grand Elysee Hotel. “Guests have commented that it is very easy to… View this story

    The world’s first full-scale (50-feet wide x 40-feet long x 32-feet high) big data exploration facility opened at Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts and Technology on January 30, 2015 and features audio technologies from Harman’s JBL Professional and BSS Audio. Known as the Cube, this four-story, $15 million theater and laboratory uses motion capture and visual environment technologies, specialized acoustics, real-time audio visual rendering and high-performing computers to create a virtual environment laboratory that allows scientists to model and… View this story

    The Venetian is an event and reception facility in Northern New Jersey for weddings and other formal events. The hall’s majestic décor, with its marble walls and flooring, is truly impressive in its grandeur. That same architecture has also long been a source of frustration for any event coordinator whose plans include musical entertainment. The Venetian recently underwent a large-scale overhaul of its audio, video, and lighting systems, designed and implemented by Paramus, NJ-based Synapse Audio Visual Designs. Among the… View this story

    The term optimization stems from the French word optimisme, meaning “the greatest good” or “the best.” Historically, the sound reinforcement industry has employed the term in the context of sound system tuning or alignment, but it was not until recently that the use of the term optimization has taken on a more literal and formalized meaning. It’s important to be familiar with the concept of numerical optimization (most simply, the determination of input values to obtain a function’s maximum or… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics is now shippping its new Deep6 Low-Frequency Absorber, a 2’ x 4’ x 6” powder-coated, black steel frame-enclosed absorption device. The Deep6 Low-Frequency Absorber is specifically designed to be installed on a wall or across a vertical corner to improve low-frequency absorption throughout the room and accuracy at the mix position, without sonic artifacts. This acoustical treatment is for rooms where corner-fitted bass traps are not possible due to doors or windows, and provides usable broadband control down… View this story

    sE Electronics has announced two new products debuting at the 2015 Musikmesse show in Frankfurt, Germany: the RNT, a large-diaphragm multi-pattern tube microphone designed with Mr. Rupert Neve, and the guitaRF, Reflexion Filter created specifically for double-miking and recording guitar amp cabinets. Over ten years in development, the RNT combines a high-voltage tube circuit within the microphone itself, a floor box with a discrete, class-A amplifier circuit using the same custom op-amps as Rupert Neve Designs’ 5088 analogue mixing console,… View this story

    Twenty years ago, Jazz at the Bistro launched in a former cafeteria in midtown St. Louis, and since then has been lauded by many as one of the premiere live jazz spots in the U.S. The venue is operated by Jazz St. Louis, a not-for-profit organization established after the closing of the Just Jazz program at the Hotel Majestic. The Jazz St. Louis mandate is straightforward: “Present jazz the way it’s meant to be experienced.” In service of that mandate,… View this story

    The Journey North Community Church near Brainerd, Minnesota recently acquired an old Lutheran church school building in nearby Baxter, Minnesota and set about the task of converting its reverberant gymnasium into a contemporary worship space. Twin Cities-based Audio Video Electronics (AVE) was brought in to give the worship space improved acoustics and lighting. AVE also installed a Danley Sound Labs SH-96 for main coverage and two Danley SM-60Fs for side fill. AVE used every creative idea in the book to… View this story
