    According to an old axiom, “Everyone knows two things: their job and sound.” In other words, every audience member is an audio expert. Therefore, it is difficult to deliver a “good” mix since what is proper tonal and level balance to one person is inappropriate to another. A healthy relationship between the front of house engineer and the audience rests on the engineer’s ability to provide a mix acceptable to a plurality of the listeners’ ears. To achieve success, the… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Ivan While doing a demo/shootout (with several different brand loudspeakers) the front of house guy said something that I have never heard before, and usually thought the opposite was preferred. He said about one of the products (his mind was already made up about another product) before the demo was even setup… “I don’t like product… View this story

    Some of China’s top rock artists kicked off the Music Power Rock China 30 tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Chinese rock music, flying in renowned engineer, Jim Ebdon, to manage front of house sound. Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing systems were installed at front of house sound and monitors, with a ME personal monitor mixing system provided for artists. The concert was staged on the same day and at the same venue as 30 years ago, when… View this story

    Being the online forum lurker that I sometimes am, there are times when I’m struck by a pattern or trend that was never clear before (for whatever reason). It happened just a while ago, and the context is relevant to what we do in our business of live sound. This particular discussion, on a music forum, was a thread about “the great tone we’ve spent years perfecting that is destroyed when it goes through a PA.” (You guessed it –… View this story

    It seems to me that over the course of many years and many technological “advances,” we have once again come to an age-old question: where is the line of acceptability? As recording techniques, and production ethics change as quickly as we receive DAW updates and debug programs, I think we need to pause for a bit of reflection. It is, of course, a well-accepted theory that you can’t properly embrace the future until you understand the past. So, let’s take… View this story

    Church on the Move (COTM) in Tulsa is the home to Pastor Willie George, a passionate minister who was first introduced to me through a series of videos that my oldest daughter watched in children’s church. That was over 20 years ago, and COTM has since grown into one of the most respected and well-known churches in America. At the helm of the church’s seven-day-a-week schedule, assuming responsibility for all aspects of live production, is another person I’ve found to… View this story

    The corporate bio on Ralph Heinz states, “as the son of Renkus-Heinz founder and chairman, Harro… he was born to design loudspeakers.” While his family has a history of being entrepreneurs, Heinz, now senior vice president, is quick to point out that there wasn’t an automatic route to the role he’d ultimately play when joining the company in 1989. “But I do treat loudspeaker design and my role in product development and management with an entrepreneurial spirit,” he adds. “For… View this story

    In a continuation of my previous article (here), I’m taking a look at five more of the most common live mix mistakes I’ve encountered when attending gigs as an audience member and offering some potential solutions to these everyday issues. Excuse me while I kiss this guy. It still surprises me when I go to gigs where either the vocals can’t be heard or they’re so buried in the mix that it’s impossible to make out what they’re saying.
