    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Talking about common problems and solutions is one thing, but in this article I’m also exploring the over-arching reason why most of these occur and what you can do to avoid them. The 5 Common Audio Problems / Solutions 1. Partial plugging: I’ve even done this one back in my guitar days.  It’s what happens when the guitarist doesn’t plug their cable completely into their guitar.  When I don’t get a… View this story

    On a recent quest to explore Belize and Mexico, I came across the last thing I expected to find… A professional guitar player. He was actually the manager of a small retreat where we spent a few nights. Between admiring crocodiles and enduring Hurricane Earl, I ended up discussing the “sound guy versus the guitar player” conflict with him. (A conflict which obviously also affects sound girls…) For an incredibly talented player who’s been at it almost as long as… View this story

    Bassist and guitarist Phil Soussan’s credits read like a who’s who of hard rock royalty, from Ozzy Osbourne to Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil, from Billy Idol to Jimmy Page and beyond. For his most recent residency at the Tropicana Hotel in the musical revue, “Raiding the Rock Vault,” Soussan counts on Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless including an LT belt-pack transmitters and LR receiver. “I have two LT transmitter units attached to my straps, and the LR receiver is first… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Microphone choice and technique have a powerful affect on the amplified sound of a reinforcement system. The sound picked up might be “natural,” “boomy,” “thin,” “colored” and any other number of descriptive terms that are applied to a sonic signature. It’s usually most desirable to attain “natural” sound. But what does that mean? I define it as the tonal balance heard with our ears in front of a musical instrument, a few… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Weeping, with tears running down my cheeks, I can no longer hide my feelings. The microphone hangs lifeless; the cable, like a noose, suspends it midway down the amp for all to see. Yet the guitarist plays on, oblivious. Poor amp miking strikes again. Mixing electric guitars should be easier like mixing acoustic guitars or vocals. Know the guitar’s sound, know the song arrangement, and blend accordingly. That’s a bit simplified,… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the JDX Direct-Drive is now shipping. The JDX Direct-Drive simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box. In other words, with the JDX Direct-Drive on a pedalboard, you can do a gig without carrying an amp to the club. Radial’s Central Territory manager, David ‘Shuu’ Guidish, spent almost two decades on stage as a guitar tech with various bands including a ten year stint with Nickelback.  According to Shuu: “On the… View this story

    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

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Lusting after large diaphragm condenser (LDC) microphones has become a national pastime. Newbies devour the recording magazines and read about this artist and that artist recording to vintage U-47’s or Tele 251’s and believe that they need those same mics, (or too often a design copy from China) to get a “hit” record. However, the acoustic conditions that exist in the average home studio or even small pro studio do not lend themselves to the… View this story
