    line arrays
    Jeff Berryman 09/20/16 11:39 AM,
    This is a discussion of line array high-frequency output capability, and what it might mean to you. The specific quantity we’re looking at is the frequency response at maximum output power for all drivers. This is the maximum acoustic output of the array as a function of frequency. I will call it the power-bandwidth response. Here’s a question: what power bandwidth must line array elements have in order to deliver a flat frequency response to audience seats? Because of the… View this story

      The human auditory system is equipped with two inputs - left and right ears. This “binaural” processing system provides us with the ability to localize where sound is coming from, something that a one-eared listener would have difficulty in doing. Playback systems may utilize any number of channels to surround the listener with sound, but two channels is always enough to simulate the human listener. Recording enthusiasts have long discovered the benefits of stereo microphones. While not necessarily “human-like,”… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1 (loudspeakers) and part 2 (signal processing) of this series. The high-resolution dual-channel audio analyzer is a standard front-of-house tool in the modern sound system. There are quite a few versions available, such as Rational Acoustics Smaart, Meyer Sound SIM, SATlive, AFMG Sys-Tune, Metric Halo Spectrafoo, and more.  These tools are common, quite inexpensive, and offer information that’s fairly easy to understand and act upon. It was only a short time… View this story

    Audio Precision introduces a trio of new measurement plugins for their APx audio test software. Each plugin integrates directly with APx software (version 4.3 or later) and adds new capabilities while allowing users to take advantage of built-in APx features such as limits, sequencer control, derived results and reporting. Attack-and-Release - Automatic Gain Control (AGC) is a signal processing technique typically used to limit the audio dynamic range in applications ranging from hearing aids to broadcasting. AP’s latest plugin enables… View this story

      The eyes and ears do not always agree when it comes to sound quality. (Related article here.) If making acoustic measurements is so difficult, why bother? Why not tune the system based solely on listening? Because there are several very good reasons for including our eyes in the system tuning process! We humans base our concept of reality upon the evidence presented by the five senses to the brain. Our concept of “blue sky” or “green grass” is the… View this story

    “I’m going to equalize the room.” We’ve all heard that statement so many times that we scarcely think about what it literally means. We know that in practical terms it means adjusting an equalizer to suit your taste. It may be done with the latest high-technology analysis equipment, voodoo magic or simply tweaking away “until it sounds right.” In any case, are we really “equalizing the room”? What exactly are we doing? There are lots of disagreements on this topic… View this story

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   Several common questions are often asked related to loudspeaker sound reproduction, such as: 1. Why does a loudspeaker sound different when moved to another room? 2. Why does my new bookshelf loudspeaker sound terrible at home? They were great in the showroom! 3. Why does the loudspeaker sound muddy/bassy inside a room? It was great when I listened to it outside. There are other questions, but readers can get the point… View this story

    Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in the November/December 2001 issue of Live Sound International magazine. ————————————————————- At the announcement of my children’s birth, the first thing everyone asked was “what did they weigh?” It always struck me as somewhat peculiar. Of all the personal qualities you could discuss, such as the color of the hair, or how healthy they are, weight seems a strange specification. Fancy telling somebody that you have just purchased a new car: “Oh really, what… View this story
