    More than 400,000 spectators recently converged on the Eiffel Tower in Paris for a Bastille Day celebration, with the systems (live and broadcast) incorporating dual Lawo mc²36 mixing consoles – one handling the orchestra, and the other dedicated to the choirs and opera singers. The consoles were accompanied by two Lawo DALLIS I/O systems as stage boxes, with the components linked via RAVENNA to Lawo’s latest router, the Nova37. The program opened and closed with the same pieces – “The… View this story

    One day on a freelance gig I walked into the room to discover that the A/V company provided me with an older analog console with two racks of outboard gear. While setting up front of house and patching in all of the effects and processing, I found myself wishing for a digital console. The very next freelance gig I was presented with a brand-new digital console and no extra gear at front of house. As I waded through menus trying… View this story

    Penn Elcom recently completed the design and installation of a wiring infrastructure for a new recording studio in Hasting for songwriter/producer Paul Godfrey, creator of the trio, Morcheeba. The installation, within an old Methodist Church building in the heart of the town, entailed delivering all the multicores, cables, stage boxes, patch bays, wall racks plus associated metalwork, and was overseen by Penn’s Leon Whipp who heads the company’s specialist wiring division. The building has been utilized meaningfully in the conversion… View this story

    When you make a change to a touring audio rig that is seen by some as a compromise but will mean less space and weight on the truck—and it actually improves the overall audio quality—that’s a good day for an audio engineer. That is exactly what James Shaw has found on his current Rat Sound-reinforced tour with Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals connecting a pair of DiGiCo consoles while sharing mic pres and using the manufacturer’s Gain Tracking feature.… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   DI boxes (“Direct Instrument” or “Direct Inject” boxes) are very helpful tools in a live sound system. The most common type is called a passive DI, which includes an isolation transformer and ground lift switch.  The primary function of a DI box is to convert the unbalanced (1/4-inch 2-conductor) phone plug output on your keyboard or guitar into a low-impedance (low-z), balanced (3-conductor) XLR jack, which can be plugged directly into your signal snake… View this story

    Several years ago my company was hired to provide production for a fashion show in a ballroom. In advancing the show with the producer, the audio portion looked to be fairly easy, with just a few wireless microphones for the presenters and music playback provided by a DJ. Outputs were supposed to be the feeds to the left and right main PA stacks, along with a send to the video company recording the show. Add a board mic and our… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   This paper discusses the pitfalls (often subtle) of our industry’s failure to define and standardize what “unity gain” means, and the conditions necessary to measure it. It further discusses how people improperly use one piece of misinformation (impedance matching) to correct for this lack of standardization. All done, without knowing discrepancies exist between different pieces of equipment, and without knowing impedance matching is unnecessary, signal degrading, and wasteful. For me, it began… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the Radial Catapult is now shipping. The Catapult is a 4-channel audio snake that lets you send analog and AES digital audio signals over standard Cat 5 shielded twisted pair cable. This enables system contractors to take advantage of pre-wired networks to connect one room to another and allows stage techs to take advantage of the relatively low cost of this abundantly available cable for return snakes or for transporting channels of balanced audio across a large… View this story
