    We’re currently in-between touring seasons. Cables and snakes have been tested and repaired, wood painted, and cases treated to fresh new stenciling. All racks have been repackaged to their standard configurations, trucks subjected to annual maintenance, and warehouse floor swept - twice. Aside from a stray show here and there, for many hire companies, things are pretty quiet. Yes, these are the days that turn sound company owner and manager thoughts to Alternative Revenue Sources (ARS). The contracting/install market is… View this story

    The line between live and recording engineers has blurred in recent years with a dramatic increase in recording live shows and events, as well as virtual sound check. Most newer digital consoles and mixers – and even a few analog models – provide some type of onboard recording systems that facilitate at least a basic two-track recording. Several others offer multi-track recording onboard or allow convenient streaming of multi-tracks to a digital audio workstation and/or recorder. With digital networks increasingly… View this story

    I’ve spoken with dozens of live sound techs and engineers over the years who have expressed (often longingly) their wish for a way to reliably distribute full-bandwidth audio signal wirelessly to loudspeakers in remote locations, such as delay towers that extend coverage at larger events. The decades-long practice of running cable for this application has been, and remains, somewhat expensive as well as a hassle, i.e., preventing cable damage or accidental unplugging with thousands of people tromping around. Attempts to… View this story

    When amplifying an acoustic guitar, the use of a microphone can lead to concerns about feedback as well as being able to adequately amplify the instrument. With electric guitars, there are also concerns about the microphone adequately and accurately picking up the sound from the guitar amp, and in many cases, there’s also a desire for a quieter stage. Both scenarios lead to the use of direct (or DI) boxes as an alternative. But note that when selecting a direct… View this story
