    live sound international

    For the performing musician there are few things worse than bad sound. If the mix is bad in the PA the audience can’t hear the music, and if it’s bad in the monitors it makes it difficult to play together effectively. Whatever level artists are at in the music industry, they spend valuable time, effort and money preparing for those precious minutes on stage but all of those efforts can quickly be undone by subpar sound engineering. It’s no coincidence… View this story

    Karrie Keyes enjoyed a unique view of the 1980s-90s punk rock scene as well as the rise and evolution Pearl Jam, one of the more popular groups of the past 20-plus years. In fact, I recently caught up with the noted monitor engineer during a break on the band’s current tour, which finishes up later this month with dates at Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago. Keyes’ career also includes live mix work with RHCP, Fugazi, Sonic… View this story

    Front of house engineer Tomas Wolfe utilized a Roland M-5000 OHRCA digital console on both the U.S. and European legs of the recent tour by The Neighbourhood. Wolfe, a native of Los Angeles, worked his way up from the bottom in live audio, beginning with stints at Sunset Boulevard music venues such as the Viper Room and the Roxy Theatre. Two years on the L.A. club circuit led to touring with a series of artists, including BØRNS, Belly, Everlast, the… View this story

    Anyone who has survived more than a few hours behind a console has already accumulated a few amusing tales of the pro audio life. It doesn’t take long before they start sounding like war stories, sitcoms or detective novels. From my experience, the primary talent that identifies a true industry pro is their ability to manage pressure and make things happen without excuses. The ones who can be dropped into any situation and run it like it was rehearsed. Becoming… View this story

    The mistakes worship teams commit while approaching God do not preclude His presence, but they do erect obstacles to the flow of the Holy Spirit. Here, then, are 10 common errors churches can avoid in the pursuit of God: 1. Turning minor mistakes into public spectacles. When a vocalist forgets to turn on a wireless microphone or a technician commits a track cueing error, the worst thing a worship leader can do is to proclaim the mistake to the entire… 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 JC I’m going to set up some mics to record the impending “weather-pocalypse” tonight. What should I use? Here’s what I have available: 2x AT3035 2x AT3031 1x SM57 1x Audix i5 1x R0DE NT2A 2x dBx RTA-M 3x Audio-Technica handheld dynamic mics. Unfortunately, I don’t own any kick drum mics.

    Currently serving as the director of Danley (Sound Labs) University, Doug Jones grew up in northeastern Congo, the child of missionary parents, and his feelings about his childhood experience are complex: the benefits — difficult to articulate — came at considerable costs. “It’s hard to know how to share my story with anyone who wasn’t a missionary kid,” he says. “And yet it is my story; it shaped who I am today.” Jones has long mused about the radical discord… View this story

    Throughout his career, Kyle Hamilton has served as front of house engineer for some of the biggest names in music, past and present. Along the way, he’s seen the world and also earned substantial recognition as a recording engineer, notably for mixing, among others, Grammy-winning records by Gladys Knight and Pharrell Williams. Although Hamilton prefers the immediacy of live shows, he began his education in audio with recording. “I was always into music and I was always a technical kind… View this story

    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
