    Travis front of house engineer Jon Lewis notes that the Allen & Heath dLive S Class digital mixing system has become his mixer of choice following several months of extensive touring by the Scottish rock band. Travis embarked on a European tour in May 2016 to promote its new album, Everything At Once. The tour was followed by dates on the worldwide festival circuit, finishing in December with a run of arena gigs back in the UK. “I was very… View this story

    “Audio System Engineer”—has a nice ring to it, eh? Very official sounding. Not so very long ago there was a controversy about this title. I believe the crux of the argument revolved around the use of the label “engineer” when there was no college degree earned. But like most things, this too did pass. What’s in a name anyway? The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has accepted me as member since 1978, and if it works for them, it works for… View this story

    Many live mixes are not only too loud, but also sonically unbalanced. I got to thinking about this (again) when recently re-reading “How Loud Does It Need To Be?” by Peter Janis of Radial Engineering here on ProSoundWeb. Yes, I’m saying it right here: far too many live mixes are just plain bad. That is, too much bass, too many highs, and dynamics out of control. Add this to SPL in excess of 110 to 115 dB and it’s not… View this story

    In the early 1990s I was serving as a maintenance tech in a large recording studio complex when I got a call from the sound company I’d worked for in the previous decade. Was I available to mix and tech front of house for the upcoming Canada Day (July 1st in Canada, like July 4th in the U.S.) gig at the provincial legislature? I hadn’t done live sound in a while, but it was a daytime gig, on a paid… View this story

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this story
