    Being the online forum lurker that I sometimes am, there are times when I’m struck by a pattern or trend that was never clear before (for whatever reason). It happened just a while ago, and the context is relevant to what we do in our business of live sound. This particular discussion, on a music forum, was a thread about “the great tone we’ve spent years perfecting that is destroyed when it goes through a PA.” (You guessed it –… View this story

    It seems to me that over the course of many years and many technological “advances,” we have once again come to an age-old question: where is the line of acceptability? As recording techniques, and production ethics change as quickly as we receive DAW updates and debug programs, I think we need to pause for a bit of reflection. It is, of course, a well-accepted theory that you can’t properly embrace the future until you understand the past. So, let’s take… View this story

    Church on the Move (COTM) in Tulsa is the home to Pastor Willie George, a passionate minister who was first introduced to me through a series of videos that my oldest daughter watched in children’s church. That was over 20 years ago, and COTM has since grown into one of the most respected and well-known churches in America. At the helm of the church’s seven-day-a-week schedule, assuming responsibility for all aspects of live production, is another person I’ve found to… View this story

    The corporate bio on Ralph Heinz states, “as the son of Renkus-Heinz founder and chairman, Harro… he was born to design loudspeakers.” While his family has a history of being entrepreneurs, Heinz, now senior vice president, is quick to point out that there wasn’t an automatic route to the role he’d ultimately play when joining the company in 1989. “But I do treat loudspeaker design and my role in product development and management with an entrepreneurial spirit,” he adds. “For… View this story

    In a continuation of my previous article (here), I’m taking a look at five more of the most common live mix mistakes I’ve encountered when attending gigs as an audience member and offering some potential solutions to these everyday issues. Excuse me while I kiss this guy. It still surprises me when I go to gigs where either the vocals can’t be heard or they’re so buried in the mix that it’s impossible to make out what they’re saying. The… View this story

    Every time a new audio innovation arises, it’s met by a certain amount of resistance. This is ironic and puzzling to me, seeing as our field is driven almost entirely by technology. What motivates this response? Perhaps fear that technology will replace us. Are system techs quaking in their boots, fearful of being replaced by a system processor with auto-EQ abilities? How many engineers have become unemployed as a result of automixer technology? More likely, I think it’s fear that… View this story

    While producer Tom Biller has worked out of nearly all of the big studios around Los Angeles in his career as both a producer and engineer, lately many of the most exciting sounds he is creating are coming out of his home studio in Echo Park. To ensure depth and presence from his highly focused setup, Biller has recently turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers. “I’m only really running 8 channels of input in the home studio, so it forces me… View this story

    A recent conversation with another engineer got me thinking about experiences that shaped my skills. While in the trenches, certain restrictions and limitations were aggravating and occasionally provoked fits of rage. However, in hindsight, those same events were actually beneficial to developing my skills. Budget Restrictions Many, many…. many years working with churches teaches you one incredibly important skill… Making do with what you have. Part of what established me as a moderately well-respected system installer was my understanding of… View this story

    Mike Joseph 05/17/16 08:02 AM,
    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
