    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   As more and more of our A/V/L equipment becomes computerized—and thus is running from a hard drive—figuring out how long a drive will last is quickly becoming a big deal for technical leaders. A quick count in my tech booth tallied 20 hard drives (both SSD and spinning). Some of those are backups, and that doesn’t count the three others that we keep in another room as backups. So to say our operation… View this story

    Computers, of course, are omnipresent in today’s live audio production environment. They’re used for recording, backing tracks, system tuning and monitoring—and don’t forget walk-in/out music. As I delved into the subject, I was struck by how various front of house engineers approach the tasks to get the job done and was surprised to find that computers were not always their first choice for every chore. On The Record There are often two processes that happen simultaneously when recording a live… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Before you can even think about releasing your first quadruple-platinum album, you’ll need some way to record it. For years, big ‘ol tape machines ruled the recording world. I’ve got a buddy who laughs at how much much useless information from “the analog days” is taking up valuable space in his brain – things like like how to align a 2-inch tape machine. While it used to take up to several hours just… View this story

This is like the “Get Info” window but it will not clutter up the screen and will show combined data for selections. Resizing Windows—Shift-drag will scale height and width of the window—Alt-drag will re-size opposite sides at once with same center point Cycle Options In Dialog Boxes It’s a pain in… View this story

    This article is provided by Gowing Associates.   You’ve read all the stories about losing your valuable data on a computer. Maybe you’ve experienced a loss of data. Whatever the reason, you’ve been convinced that backing up your data is the best possible protection against data loss. You’ve set up a scheduled backup either locally on an external drive/CD/DVD or you’re using one of the many online backup services. You keep multiple versions of the most important files and you… View this story

    The personal computer is frequently used as a program source for sound reinforcement systems. Internal sound cards can be pretty good and software wave file players abound. A common question is “Where do I set the output level of my PC for optimum results?” The answer can vary per PC, so here are some steps to help figure it out for yours. I will assume that WAV files are being used, but this applies to any audio file format. Sound… View this story

    Ready, brace yourself, this one is going to hurt: Computers are not made for audio. There, I finally said it! Computers are made for crunching numbers, and they also happen to be able to manage audio and video tasks really well because of their tremendous processing power. However, when it comes to best audio quality practices, they’re sometimes not ideal. Often we use computers to feed tracks to PA systems and as playback machines for things such as backing tracks.… View this story
