Balanced connections have a long history that dates back to the early days of telephony. The phone company runs thousands of miles of unshielded cable between… View this story

    The Tell-All Tech 09/29/16 06:43 AM,
    Some would say we’re taken for granted. Others might say we’re misunderstood. Still others occasionally say “thank you.” Who are we? Your humble servants, equipment service technicians – or “service techs” for short. Is it true that we stick pins in power amp dolls while dancing naked under the full moon with bones through our noses in order to get your gear repaired to working order? Or how about the rumor that we collect large bags of cash for a… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   The last few months in my little corner of the AV industry has been met with some significant upheaval. At last count seven AV compatriots had lost their job or quit with no prospects on the table. The narcissistic part of me would claim that I was bad luck, but that’s just silly. Right? As I watch and help where I can, the question of what these fine AV professionals want to… View this story

    From the October 1976 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Howard Cummings interviews a legend of the industry, producer/engineer Alan Parsons. Howard Cummings: How did you get involved in this business? Alan Parsons: Well, I started playing piano when I was 6 or 7 and started playing flute when I was 13. Then I gave up for awhile and kind of lost interest in playing music and had more interest in listening to it. When I was… View this story

    How do we teach aspiring audio professionals to mix? How important is teaching? Can some people even be taught? I’ve seen debates in the ProSoundWeb LAB forums as to whether mixing sound can/can’t be taught. There are a couple of interesting books I’ve read that relate to this idea. The first one is “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel Levitin. Levitin addresses the age-old question of talent versus work effort, and essentially concludes that the real deciding factor… View this story
