    ARX announces the release of its 2nd Generation USB DI, the first with dual mode audio input interface - digital and analog - for two DIs in one. “ARX released our first USB DI back in 2007 and the unit has become an industry standard for USB - analog audio conversion” says ARX managing director, Colin Park. “Recently we’ve been looking at where and how ARX’s USB DIs are being used, and concluded that along with USB enabled devices, some… View this story

    Energy Transformation Systems (ETS) introduces its new AES/EBU digital audio adapters. Model PA851 (Female XLR) and model PA850 (Male XLR) allow transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals up to 100 meters over Cat5 UTP The exclusive ETS digital audio adapter (PA850 Series) is impedance-matched, balanced and isolated to provide AES/EBU signals over Cat5 or better unshielded twisted pair wiring. Testing has shown the signal performance over UTP is equal to that of 110 ohm single shielded twisted pair wire even… View this story

    What is impedance? Impedance is the AC (alternating current) version of the DC (direct current) term resistance, which is the opposition to electron current flow in a circuit and is expressed in ohms. Impedance (often abbreviated as “Z”) includes capactive reactance and inductive reactance in addition to simple DC resistance. Reactance depends upon the frequency of the signal flowing in the circuit. Capactive reactance increases as frequency decreases: inductive reactance increases as frequency increases. Because of this frequency dependence, impedance… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in 1997, but the principles are still valid today and worthy of repeating. Like everything else in the world, the audio industry has been radically and irrevocably changed by the digital revolution. No one has been spared. Arguments will ensue forever about whether the true nature of the real world is analog or digital; whether the fundamental essence, or dharma, of life is continuous (analog) or… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   Operating the sound system from the mix position during a Sunday worship service, “it” all began when the first note from our grand piano was distorted. Hmm… We’d checked the piano channel and sound prior to the service, and all was fine. My first reaction to the distortion now being produced was to reduce the gain on that console channel, thinking perhaps the piano player was “nailing” the keys very hard. Yet… View this story

    On the last leg of Ellie Goulding’s recent tour of Europe, next coming to North America, the sound team upgraded the keyboard and playback rigs with technology from Ferrofish and RME, which are both distributed by Synthax. Specifically, Will Sanderson, the tour’s MIDI, playback and keyboards technician, decided to deploy the new Ferrofish A32 AD/DA converter for the show’s keyboard and playback rig and the RME MADIface XT 394-Channel, 192 kHz USB 3.0 audio interface. “The aim was to design… View this story

    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
