    This article is provided by PreSonus.   The significance of balanced and unbalanced connections between audio devices, as well as the meaning of the terms, is often misunderstood. A balanced output can be designed, constructed, and connected in many ways, and there are several ways in which balanced and unbalanced devices can be interconnected. Balanced connections have a long history that dates back to the early days of telephony. The phone company runs thousands of miles of unshielded cable between… View this story

    For sending/receiving multiple signals with just one single cable, MADI is the solution. Up to 64 channels per cable, integrated clock synchronization, long-range electrical or optical transmission and more are now available with the MARIAN SERAPH M2. Based on a PCIe interface, a single SERAPH M2 sends and receives up to 256 channels either via 4 electrical BNC or 2 optical SC connectors. SyncBus also allows users to internally synchronize up to 4 SERPAH M2 in one computer. Using special… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This article, #InstallationFail, has been inspired by the many, many instances of bad installation practices I’ve seen throughout the years. I’ve been taking pictures and cataloging these for quite some time, and I figured it’s time to share them with the world. Now, I should point out I’m not publishing these to make anyone feel bad. Though some of you should feel bad for some of these installations. But that’s not the point.… View this story

    Energy Transformation Systems has introduced the Rebalancer (PA819), a passive self-contained digital audio problem solver. If you have trouble with hum, buzz or a higher than normal noise floor, this could be due to twisted pairs which are unbalanced or even ‘”slightly” unbalanced. The Rebalancer (PA819) resolves many of these issues. A badly balanced input signal emerges from the other side as an improved, balanced signal, improved common mode rejection, lower noise and lower EMI/RFI. Many classic old devices (limiters,… View this story

    What type of direct (DI) box works best for bass guitar? The answer is easy: it depends. In fact, more than anything else, it depends on the type of bass that the DI is going to be used with. When it comes to signal flow, there are two types of bass guitars: passive and active. The first electric basses, i.e., the original Fender Precision, were passive, and in fact still are today. They employed magnetic pickups to generate the signal… 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

    analog digital conversion
    Dennis A. Bohn 08/15/16 12:53 PM,
    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
