    For the past ten years, Roselle Park, New Jersey-based Audio Incorporated vice president Mike Sinclair and partner Stephen Tolve have provided the sound for the annual Freifhofers Saratoga Jazz Festival, with Sinclair mixing front of house for many of the acts. The system Sinclair selected for the 2015 Saratoga Jazz Festival consists of a 12-cabinet Renkus-Heinz VL3 “J” array on each side of the stage. “Jazz audiences are totally unforgiving,” notes Sinclair. “With jazz, it’s especially important that the PA… View this story

It was fascinating and challenging to resolve these problems. On one festival stage, the client had followed only part of our standard agreement. The deposit was half of the fee for building a stage, sound system and lighting rig. The deal was that as soon as everything was in place and operational, the balance was… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics has provided a key component of an innovative installation – known as “Silent Room” – at the 2016 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, which took place from around March 11 to 20. Those who have experienced South By Southwest know that it can quickly coalesce into a haze of noise over the busy 10 days, so Dutch artist Simon Heijdens created “Silent Room,” an anechoic space filtering out any sound or color. Located in the… View this story
