    Composer/producer/engineer Rob Arbittier, a longtime Stevie Wonder collaborator and sound designer, has wired his LA studio with cabling from Germany’s Sommer Cable, which recently established its US headquarters in California. Arbittier has written and produced the music and sound-design for hundreds of albums, commercials, movie trailers, TV shows, films and games, and has received numerous awards, including Grammy recognition for engineering. “When I built my first studio here in 2003,” he explains. “I wanted a cable that would work for… View this story

    Another long lost article from the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine. “I have a speaker cabinet that says it’s rated at 300 watts. What size of power amplifier should I get to hook up to it?” That simple question, posed recently by a part-time musician who had to deal with his group’s sound system, made me stop and think for a minute about power. About watts, ohms, and all of those other things named after English and German scientists… View this story

    Editor’s Note: While this article discusses delays in a theater environment, the information can be applied to any situation. In an ideal world, the best system would be a single point source that would cover every single seat in the house at the same level with the same frequency response. This is easy to state, tough to execute. Most theaters have walls, ceilings, domes, balcony boxes and balcony fronts, chandeliers, canopies, sidewall projections, pillars, pilasters, plaster pachyderms, which get in… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Having been around the AV integration industry for some time, I have witnessed a lot of change—from rapidly eroding product margins to CRT becoming Plasma becoming LCD becoming LED and so much more. We are, without question, in a time of constant change and with that constant change comes both opportunity and challenges for integration businesses. Back in the day when profit margins on hardware were a little more lucrative, our industry… View this story

    This article is an excerpt from the book, “Basic Training for the Church Audio Technician.” One thing that often leads to a tech learning about their system quickly is the upgrade or construction process. When gear is replaced or a new system is installed, plenty of opportunities arise to learn quickly. There are few ways to learn faster, than when you are trying to solve a problem. Something failed. Something changed and requires different equipment. New construction that requires a… View this story

    After repeatedly retraining a young apprentice on the same task, I discovered myself rapidly losing the grasp of whatever social skills I had retained. We had been working together for weeks, yet he still refused to follow my simple directions. He insisted on doing a routine task in any way other than the one I had shown him. Nearing the end of my rope, I attempted to redirect his efforts one last time. However, he interrupted my coaching with two… View this story
