    As we bask in the all-enveloping glory of the digital age, it’s come to my attention that some intrepid live sound engineers are very occasionally coming across analog equipment as they travel to some of the dustier corners of the globe. While many of us are old enough to remember these beasts, not everyone has had the opportunity to operate these relics so I thought it might be a good idea to write a guide to the “ancient art” of… View this story

    For a young monitor engineer working with several touring artists, one of the keys to success is having a trustworthy pair of IEMs. A 28-year old hailing from Ireland, Conor Dillon is currently on the road with ex-Boyzone singer Ronan Keating, and has also mixed monitors for recent tours by OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) and FFS (Franz Ferdinand + Sparks). It was during the FFS tour last year that Dillon has found his reference standard for in-ears: Sensaphonics… View this story

    With its emphasis on modern dance and its integrated video elements, a Sia show is as theatrical as it is musical. That’s certainly been the case on her “Nostalgic for the Present” excursion, the multiple award-winning Australian pop singer’s first arena concert outing. A foundational element on the tour is a pair of DiGiCo consoles: an SD5 loaded with DiGiCo’s new Stealth Core 2 at front of house, and an SD10 for monitors. “I picked up the SD5 right after… View this story

    This article is provided by   I meet a lot of sound engineers and techs around my age (mid-20s) that strictly stick to audio and don’t dare to touch anything else, whether it be to stay focused on audio or to not get roped into something they don’t particularly want to do.
