    Of all the tools my company brings to shows, computers (in laptop form) are certainly among the most important. They allow us to edit and play back music tracks, convert audio file formats, measure/analyze audio, and evaluate/monitor the RF spectrum and coordinate frequencies for wireless systems. We can also get equipment manuals and quick start guides, surf the web during downtime and even record the gig. Whether it’s a Mac or PC doesn’t matter as long as it helps make… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   We all like to be more productive with our time, and since we’re all creatures of the computer, anything that helps either decrease our waiting time or that gives us more options is welcome. Here are seven things that I’ve found to be very helpful in increasing productivity, and they’re all less $100. Not all are computer related but they’re extremely useful all the same. 1. More Computer RAM. One of the… View this story

    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

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 article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Inspector—Use “Inspector” instead of “Get Info.”—RT-click finder item then hold alt, and “Show Inspector” will appear. Or use shortcut CMD+Option+i. 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
