    Like many sound engineers, I have a background in music, so I’ve been on both sides of sound checks and know how annoying a poorly-run check can be for musicians. These experiences have led to a paradigm shift in the way I approach sound checks: they’re for the artists, not the engineers. On the road, practice time is in short supply, so many artists prefer to use their stage time to rehearse new material, tweak the backline, and tighten up… View this story

    “Any industry founded on a particular technology faces the danger that a new invention will render it obsolete.” – Tom Standage, “The Victorian Internet” When I came across this quote in Standage’s fascinating book about the history of the telegraph, it struck me with such veracity that I just put the book down and stared at the wall for a few seconds. This is something I’ve occasionally found myself wondering – will the inevitable advance of technology eventually eliminate my… View this story

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   In the current digital world, audio analyzers with FFT or TDS functions are easily able to show the magnitude and phase response of a loudspeaker. These software analyzers are not expensive and are widely used in live sound, installation and loudspeaker development. Several popular software analyzers are ARTA, Smaart, Systune and EASERA. And there are many others. Phase response is often questioned. Many practitioners use the software functions such as: delay… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Getting to the point where I’m truly happy with an audio mix can be quite a process. Over the years a strategy of sorts has shown itself that not only helps me delete unknown variables prior to mixing but gives me a great platform to build a truly consistent mix. Once the creatives map out the set I’ll spend some time perusing the songs, either the original recordings or a… View this story

    Old Soundman 11/18/16 03:26 PM,
    Dear Old Soundman, I occasionally run sound for a band that tends to play at local hole-in-the-wall venues. O.K., we feel sorry for you, now move on! The “stage” for the band is always in one of two places: a nice boomy corner, or better yet, right in front of a brick or paneled wall. One of many problems I run into (including the lead guitarist who insists he hears better with his knees)… I know that guy! And I… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   As we’re all too aware, crafting a hit song isn’t easy. Most people in the music business struggle their whole careers to be a part of just one, while others do the same to get a taste of that magic once again. While there isn’t an exact formula for a hit, there are a number of common elements between them that you’ll find that may help you in creating one. Here’s an… View this story

    If you’ve seen the Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter movie, you might recall Jimmy Johnson’s brief speaking role. He was the one coaching Keith Richards on the proper Alabama pronunciation of “Y’all come back, y’hear.” For three nights in December of 1969, the Stones cut basic tracks and live vocals for three songs: “You Gotta Move,” “Wild Horses” and “Brown Sugar.” The sessions took place at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios—the “burlap palace” at 3614 Jackson Highway—a nondescript former casket factory which… View this story
