    From the July 1990 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, technical editor Mike Joseph interviews a studio owner competing against the big boys and flying under the radar. In an effort to promote balanced journalism, RE/P has endeavored to present both sides of the ongoing issues surrounding commercially directed, so-called home project studios. More of a strong concern in the U.S. major coastal markets, the ethical and legal aspects of low-overhead, for-profit, residentially based audio production facilities… View this story

    No matter how much dust Luke Bryan’s current Kill the Lights Tour kicks up, the party and the good times just keep rolling. With seemingly no venue deemed off-limits on his schedule, the two-time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year is on the road with a backdrop of dates recently played or soon to come at festivals, in arenas, sheds, stadiums, fieldhouses, and even the wide open spaces of farm fields, where his annual Farm Tour returns him to… 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 Chuck Your favorite topics of discussion are kick drum mics and loud guitar players. You can open a door with any part of your body (while carrying equipment). Your deck at home is finished with Dura Tex. Your home stereo is covered with Rat Fur (or are Shure Vocal Masters) Reply by Ivan If you pay… View this story

    Recently a young person asked me about my work, and as I explained some of the various aspects, it triggered something in my brain. I realized that I had actually just barely scratched the surface in terms of telling him about the wide range of responsibilities that many of us have. For example, we’re regularly involved with sales before the show (and often during and after). From simply speaking to clients about their needs, to putting bids together, to being… View this story

    In 1980 I was working for a band, doing sound…and lights…and some backline…from front of house. During the 11 months I was with them, the band completed a successful showcase, landed a record deal, released its first album, and did a national tour of bars and universities. Truck and van deal…did I mention that I also drove the truck? On this particular night, pre record deal, we were part of the way through a week-long gig at a Toronto bar… View this story

    Veteran live engineers Greg Price and Myles Hale are using Avid VENUE | S6L systems on Black Sabbath’s farewell ‘The End’ world tour at front of house and monitors, respectively. Price, who has worked with bands such as Van Halen, KISS, and Rage Against The Machine, has been mixing FOH for Black Sabbath since 1997. “I’ve been famous for Ozzy’s ‘vocal pyramid’—his vocal chain of plug-ins—but then I got my hands on the new console,” Price says. “Now I’m not… View this story

    In early 1986 I got a call to see if I was available to mix an up-and-coming young band for a gig at the local art college. If it worked out, there were more gigs to come. I was indeed available, and subsequently arrived at the appointed hour to load in. The PA was, as things were at the time, made up of individual components: bass bins, low-mid cabinets, mid-high horns, and tweeters. I don’t remember what brand (or brands)… View this story
