    Editors note: From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature provides a highly in-depth look back at the concert tour of a legendary artist, circa February 1981. (Volume 12, Number 1). The text is presented unaltered, along with all original graphics. With inflation spiraling ever upwards, not many groups can afford to tour extensively, and fill the large arena so popular a few years back. Bruce Springsteen is one of those superstars who can sell… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   The last few months in my little corner of the AV industry has been met with some significant upheaval. At last count seven AV compatriots had lost their job or quit with no prospects on the table. The narcissistic part of me would claim that I was bad luck, but that’s just silly. Right? As I watch and help where I can, the question of what these fine AV professionals want to… View this story

    During a session, I remember when an artist was on mic, out in the studio ready to start vocal overdubs, and the producer asked: “How do we look in here from out there?” Interesting, because he knew the appearance of the control room to the artist might affect the vocal performance. The control room (from the studio) does look like an aquarium with the huge window and the silent action of the animals encased within it. Reactions to performances reflected… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1 (loudspeakers) and part 2 (signal processing) of this series. The high-resolution dual-channel audio analyzer is a standard front-of-house tool in the modern sound system. There are quite a few versions available, such as Rational Acoustics Smaart, Meyer Sound SIM, SATlive, AFMG Sys-Tune, Metric Halo Spectrafoo, and more.  These tools are common, quite inexpensive, and offer information that’s fairly easy to understand and act upon. It was only a short time… View this story

    I’ll bet you have some of these, too: things people say or concepts they have wrong but won’t change, despite considerable evidence. The pro audio market is rife with some of these things. There are good reasons for us to keep doing what we’re doing – if it’s been working. (“If it ain’t broke” and so on.) Nevertheless, if we aren’t continuing to learn, grow and change, we’re stagnating or worse. O.K., let’s start with getting the ones with wireless… View this story

    Last year we presented a collection of quotes (here) from various folks working in pro audio, all of which have appeared on ProSoundWeb as well as Live Sound International magazine over its 25 years of existence. It proved a popular feature, so popular in fact, that we decided to serve up another round of sage advice and observations collected from audio professionals along the way. Enjoy. “Anybody can provide equipment; it’s the way you implement that equipment and the attitude… View this story

    From the October 1976 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Howard Cummings interviews a legend of the industry, producer/engineer Alan Parsons. Howard Cummings: How did you get involved in this business? Alan Parsons: Well, I started playing piano when I was 6 or 7 and started playing flute when I was 13. Then I gave up for awhile and kind of lost interest in playing music and had more interest in listening to it. When I was… View this story

    Old Soundman 09/02/16 05:35 AM,
    Dear Old Soundman: Studio engineers verses front of house engineers - can they be one and the same? Studio guys don’t want to let us get a shot at their jobs, because we would wipe the floor with them! Unfortunately, we would also wipe the floor with their clients! Do I really want to spend three months listening to some rock star (who tries to pretend he’s a man of the people) reveal how completely dependent he is on the… View this story
