    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

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   A while ago James commented on the podcast and asked for a segment explaining some of the metering tools we have available in DAW. If you follow the podcast you may have already heard this info. Before we get into the DAW let’s briefly go over the way analog equipment is calibrated. VU Mic preamps, converters, hardware effect processors are all designed to work optimally at 0 VU. They can usually… View this story

    South Florida-based Sound Media has provided a Turbosound Flex Array sound reinforcement system for the Antioch Church’s annual One Family Church Service at the Nova University Arena in Davie, Florida. The event drew an attendance of more than 3,000 worshippers with a guest appearance from well-known Baltimore, Maryland-born singer Jonathan Nelson. Systems engineer and Sound Media owner Lennox Foster specified a Turbosound Flex Array system that consisted of left and right hangs of four TFA-600H three-way line array modules over… View this story

    This article is provided by AudioFanzine.   The goal of this guide is to help develop knowledge of basic acoustic principles, in order to provide further understanding of the techniques of sound engineering and recording. Each section has a theme that is first defined in technical terms and then further explained in practical terms with respect to audio. Timber Timber (pronounced /tam-ber’/) is a sound’s identity. This identity depends on the physical characteristics of the sound’s medium (the matter or… View this story

    Whether in his current main gig as studio and live drummer for Jason Aldean or in his CRASH Course For Success inspirational events, drummer Rich Redmond utilizes an Auralex HoverMat slip-resistant drummer’s mat for his kit. Redmond (who has also recorded and performed with Kelly Clarkson, Lit, Jewel, Joe Perry, Bryan Adams, Thompson Square and many others) is doing 80 shows a year on the road with Aldean, while for the CRASH course – Commitment, Relationships, Attitude, Skill, and Hunger… View this story

    Primeacoustic 1-inch Broadway Broadband acoustic panels are now offered with a bevelled edge finish. The bevelled finish edge replaces the square edge previously found on the panels. The thicker 2- and 3-inch panels will continue to be available in either the square edge or bevelled edge finish. “It was clear from client feedback that the 1-inch panels were most visually appealing with a bevelled edge,” states Primacoustic product specialist Jay Porter. “So we are delivering exactly that. “Bevel edged panels… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Recently I moved my home studio from one room to another. From a nearly 200-square-foot living room to a 100-square-foot bedroom. It’s been a long time since I’ve thought about room acoustics and because this is a common situation for home studios, I thought I’d share my experience. This article will help you understand and overcome the challenges of a dedicated studio in a small room. It will be most helpful… View this story

    Home of the San Luis Obispo Symphony, the 1,289-seat Christopher Cohan Center has recently installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system. Featuring a retractable active acoustic canopy formed by 40 miniature loudspeakers, the Constellation system provides an environment that helps musicians hear each other better and hence improve their sense of ensemble. “The orchestra plays on a thrust stage in front of the proscenium, under a very high ceiling,” explains Fred Vogler, principal sound designer at Sonitus, a Los Angeles-based… View this story
