    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by John I’ll be working with some bands where the rider notes a mic and DI for bass. Maybe I’ve worked with quiet bass players, if there is such an animal. But the few times I’ve tried it, I’ve soloed the mic in my cans and found that the drum bleed was as loud or louder than… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   In most churches, front of house audio (FOH) is the most difficult tech job. It’s every bit as visible as song words (or presentation as we call it), and far more difficult to master. As the church get bigger, the band typically does as well, which makes the job that much tougher. Finding volunteers who are willing to take the time to learn how to mix FOH can be challenging; I suspect most… View this story

    For close to 50 years, Earth, Wind & Fire has been playing to sold-out audiences around the globe with their classic R&B and jazz sound. Recently, Eighth Day Sound, the band’s North American and European audio provider, has added a Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 digital audio console at front of house. Prior to band rehearsals and hitting the road with the PM10 at Fantasy Springs Casino & Resort in Indio, CA in late August, Yamaha Professional Audio gave engineer Terry (TJ)… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Honestly, there are times when I arrive early at church, toss in a CD, and simply enjoy setting up the stage. Routine, yes. Exciting, no. But, enjoyable nonetheless. Some of my speed comes from years of experience and some of it comes from knowing how I can set it up in the least amount of time necessary. Want to set the stage as quickly and accurately and safely as possible? Let’s… View this story

    The Tell-All Tech 09/29/16 06:43 AM,
    Some would say we’re taken for granted. Others might say we’re misunderstood. Still others occasionally say “thank you.” Who are we? Your humble servants, equipment service technicians – or “service techs” for short. Is it true that we stick pins in power amp dolls while dancing naked under the full moon with bones through our noses in order to get your gear repaired to working order? Or how about the rumor that we collect large bags of cash for a… View this story

    The Hazelrigg Brothers’ trio sound is primarily acoustic, and although their overall style has recognizable roots, it is a product of an unusual musical background. George mostly plays piano with the trio but he started out as a harpsichordist. Geoff plainly has studied the masters of upright bass but he, too, has an eclectic musical background. George studied recording in New York City, learning on classic large-format consoles and tape decks, and Geoff is a self-taught electrical engineer. They have… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Scott Saturday evening a massive rain hit us at a gig, we knew it was coming but the RADAR WAS WRONG!! Anyway, our JBL VP series monitors ended up with water in them. I turned them over and let the water run out and removed the grill and put them under some fans at the warehouse.… View this story

    One of the few bands I did regular shows with had a guitar player that may have been more obnoxious than me. Granted, it’s not likely, but just play along for the sake of argument. After sound check on one particular gig, he reminds me to turn his guitar up during the solos. “Bud, I’ve you covered. I’m in this with you. I mix like I’m part of the band,” was my response. For some reason, that irritated him. He… View this story

    This year, Adele made a welcome return to the stage with 25, her first arena tour, which is now travelling round the US. The tour is supported by DiGiCo SD7 mixing consoles, which are situated at both the front of house and monitor positions. Front of house engineer Dave Bracey has been using DiGiCo consoles since the company first started manufacturing 14 years ago but is new to the Adele crew. Whilst Joe Campbell at monitors is new to the… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: Another classic piece worthy of repeating. This one originally appeared on PSW in 2010. I was reading an article a while back about normal people who use computers and the power users (AKA IT guys) that support them. The article talked about the routine problems normal people had using computers and how challenging it was for IT guys to help them. Not because the IT guys couldn’t solve the problem, but… View this story
