    Greetings, Old Soundman, from the Great North Woods— And greetings to you from my secret location! I’m not all that old, only been riding the faders for a few years now. Ride ‘em, soundman! Yee-ha!! Hey, did you ever hear of the X Bar X Boys? The calluses are just about right on my fingers and in my ears. What a bizarre viewpoint. I don’t really like to think about calluses. But whatever floats your boat! I was one of… View this story

    Hi. My name is Craig, and I’m a gearaholic. I tried to find a 12-step program, but quite frankly if I have to move gear more than six steps, I’m going to need a hand truck because my back isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just that I like gear; it’s that I’m addicted to it. I fall asleep reading equipment catalogs. I bypass articles in trade magazines, unless they’re talking specifically about gear, to look at the… 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

    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

    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 JC I’m going to set up some mics to record the impending “weather-pocalypse” tonight. What should I use? Here’s what I have available: 2x AT3035 2x AT3031 1x SM57 1x Audix i5 1x R0DE NT2A 2x dBx RTA-M 3x Audio-Technica handheld dynamic mics. Unfortunately, I don’t own any kick drum mics.

    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 Ivan While doing a demo/shootout (with several different brand loudspeakers) the front of house guy said something that I have never heard before, and usually thought the opposite was preferred. He said about one of the products (his mind was already made up about another product) before the demo was even setup… “I don’t like product… View this story

    Hey OSM Hey Dan! Yoko Onos. You know what I mean, I’m sure everyone who has sat behind a sound board knows what I mean. The know-it-all girl friends of the prima-donna lead singers. Oh, yes. And really, they can be the girlfriend of any band member. Her guy is always not loud enough in the mix. But a word of caution, Dan. Please do not libel Yoko Ono. I know that it is tempting to blame her for the… View this story

    Why is it that people like us, night after night dealing with musicians, and the person at every gig that comes up and says the sound sucks, let me at that thing pal, just because he got a new CD player for Christmas. Why do we still want to mix live music? I swear it’s a sickness! 1. You’re right, it is a sickness. Seek help from qualified medical personnel before it’s too late. Turn yourself in for re-grooving. You… View this story

    I’ve heard it said many times, in many different situations, that we tend to think we don’t have time to do something right, but then somehow, have time to fix everything that goes wrong as a result. We all know Mr. Murphy and his law about things tending to go wrong if there is any possibility for them to do so. But what can we do about it? For starters, correct that first part - the thing about making sure… 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
