    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   If we’re going to do some compression on the drum kit, we really have to start with the most fundamental question in the world, which is why? Why are we going to do this? Because if you’ve followed any of my tutorials, if you’ve listened to anything I’ve said, one thing I repeatedly say is we don’t do stuff just for the sake of doing it. We figure out why… View this story

    Noted for his work as an audio/electrical engineer, loudspeaker designer, and inventor over a career spanning more than three decades, if there’s one constant in the professional audio career of Dave Gunness, it’s innovation. And, perhaps more specifically, the fact that while the process of building something is valuable, the willingness and drive to continue to improve on your own creations is even more paramount. The 56-year-old vice president of research and development as well as lead product designer at… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary   A while back, I took a compact line array rig out for a demo that was also a live event. The system included six full-range line array modules and four 18-inch-loaded subwoofers, driven by 12,000-watt amplifiers—and there were four more 18-inch subs sitting in the corner. The demo room wasn’t all that large, and when I walked in and saw the size of it, and then pondered the scale of the system… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   I just got back from the NAMM show out in California. It was a fun time. I got to meet some great folks and hang out with new and old friends. I attended a talk by big-time drummer Kenny Aronoff. He’s quite a character, super entertaining. He was talking about some of the keys to his loooong successful career in the business. One thing he said was: 0 + 0 =… View this story

    Courtesy of Merlijn van Veen.   I regularly read forum posts on ProSoundWeb questioning the necessity of adding delay loudspeakers to sound reinforcement systems. The default argument in favor of them appears to be level restoration, while the default objections are budget, sightlines, timing issues, distortion of the sonic perspective, logistics, and labor. However, there is a serious but often overlooked advantage of deploying delay loudspeakers, bordering the effectiveness of absorption, that go beyond plain level restoration. The venue shown… View this story

    This article is provided by   Touring with full production in first world countries is, let’s face it, easy street. Like a family of hi-tech snails, you carry your home and everything you need; and beyond power and rigging points, you don’t need a whole lot from the local production/promoter. Even when you’re not carrying all your gear, picking up what’s needed locally in the western world is usually straightforward as long as it’s been advanced properly, especially in… View this story

    Producer/engineer Jerry Finn amassed an enormous collection of amplifiers, guitar pedals, and recording gear before his untimely death at 39 in 2008. That collection is available for sale now, through an online sale here. During his influential Punk Rock career, Finn worked with such bands as Green Day, blink-182, AFI, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, Morrissey, MxPx, and Rancid. In a 2003 interview, Finn referred to his work with Green Day on 1994’s “Dookie” as “ Before them, I… View this story

    Old Soundman 01/27/17 03:02 PM,
    Dear Old Soundman, One of the bands I mix (that does corporate shows) has an older bass player who does nothing but complain about the sound every night. “It’s too high-end-y, the sax should sound fuller, forget the singers! Turn their damn monitors down now! You suck, get your ears fixed, etc.” Yes, but does he say anything about turkey basters? Now I should note that he is not the leader of the band, nor does he sign my check.… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s a fun and interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. Enjoy. Posted by Mike Just wondered if anyone wanted to divulge their first sound gig stories? How it went, how they got the gig,where it was, etc. Everyone started somewhere! Cheers Mike Posted by Tim My first gig (without being paid) was for a track and field event. Because I played in a band and was a member of the organizing team, they asked… View this story
