    TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing four new direct boxes at AES, including mono and dual models of both active FET and passive designs.

    What type of direct (DI) box works best for bass guitar? The answer is easy: it depends. In fact, more than anything else, it depends on the type of bass that the DI is going to be used with. When it comes to signal flow, there are two types of bass guitars: passive and active. The first electric basses, i.e., the original Fender Precision, were passive, and in fact still are today. They employed magnetic pickups to generate the signal… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   DI boxes (“Direct Instrument” or “Direct Inject” boxes) are very helpful tools in a live sound system. The most common type is called a passive DI, which includes an isolation transformer and ground lift switch.  The primary function of a DI box is to convert the unbalanced (1/4-inch 2-conductor) phone plug output on your keyboard or guitar into a low-impedance (low-z), balanced (3-conductor) XLR jack, which can be plugged directly into your signal snake… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the JDX Direct-Drive is now shipping. The JDX Direct-Drive simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box. In other words, with the JDX Direct-Drive on a pedalboard, you can do a gig without carrying an amp to the club. Radial’s Central Territory manager, David ‘Shuu’ Guidish, spent almost two decades on stage as a guitar tech with various bands including a ten year stint with Nickelback.  According to Shuu: “On the… View this story

    signal levels

    Today’s live stage productions have become tremendously complex. All sorts of different instruments and electronic sources must be “orchestrated” along side the microphones and signals that need to be split off to a multitude of mixers to feed the house system, stage monitors, in-ear monitors, broadcast truck, Internet uplink and recording system. Paramount to the design is trying to insure some form of simplicity or standardization that will allow quick changes should disaster occur. In fact, even with today’s most… View this story

    The input list and stage plot is the audio core of any technical rider and the road map for organizing stage equipment and console inputs. Accurate advance information allows risers and backline to be placed, microphones and wedges cabled, and even a line check when the touring crew’s travel is delayed. Working for clubs, festivals or sound companies, we’re often frustrated by inaccurate paperwork reflecting a version of a band that’s months or years old. The reason for out-of-date paperwork… View this story

    For the past eight years, the challenge of bringing Maroon 5’s studio sparkle and sheen to the live stage has been trusted to veteran front of house engineer Jim Ebdon, who is also well known for his many tours with Aerosmith, Annie Lennox and Matchbox Twenty.
