    Housed in a mid-19th century Catholic Cathedral, the 500-sanctuary of New Birth Church in Oakland presented an acoustically challenging environment when Concord, CA-based Premier Media Integration (PMI) was recently brought in to design and install a new audio system, along with acoustical treatment. Graham Cooper, president of PMI, contacted Rocky Giannetta, principal of Layer 8, to assess the room’s acoustics and assist with systems design. With Giannetta’s acoustical measurements documenting a reverb time of 3.8 seconds, Layer 8 created an… View this story

    When a bowling alley houses 22 lanes plus a VIP/private party area, a sports bar, cafe, and restaurant, live DJs, and more than 50 screens to showcase all the best in live sports and entertainment, it’s clear that this is not just another blue collar beer-and-peanuts joint.

    At Vendéspace in western France, a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system helps transform a sports arena into a premier classical music hall on demand. The audacious multipurpose building project began when the local government realized funds were available for only one structure. As a result, two seemingly contrary uses were combined into a single, architecturally daring, and cost-effective new venue. “Most multi-purpose venues provide slight acoustic differences between shows as similar as theatre and opera, but certainly not as different… View this story

    After earning a Bachelor’s degree in music performance, I largely gave up being a musician and concentrated completely on learning the trade of being a sound engineer. Although I continued to play the viola for perhaps the first half of my time at USC in the Recording Arts program, I eventually quit the instrument altogether for what turned out to be 15 years. When I moved back to Albuquerque in 2004, some of my old musician friends talked me into… View this story

    Most sound practitioners know that low-frequency wavelengths are much longer than high-frequency wavelengths. But because we can’t see them, to what level do we really understand them? This is an important subject because understanding the nature of wavelengths can aid in optimally setting up and operating the various types of sound systems that most of us come in contact with. Let’s look at the physical differential between low frequencies and high frequencies. They are quite radical, in the sense that… View this story

    Take a free lesson in a SynAudCon web-based training course   Why should one bother trying to understand basic acoustics? The most simple (and correct) answer is that study of basic concepts enables one to sort through the truth, semi-truth, myths and flat-out errors that pervade the pro audio industry. The fundamentals of acoustics (and physics) do not change, although some “experts” try to prove otherwise. New equipment, toys and theories come and go, but the basic building blocks of… View this story
