    From the April 1983 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, David Scheirman takes a look inside the Willie Nelson & Family tour of 1983. It is perhaps safe to say that the Willie Nelson organization has been spending more production dollars for sound and lighting than most other country-oriented acts. Nelson’s house mix engineer, Mike Garvey, of Dallas, Texas, explains hie part in the decision-making process when it came down to choosing a sound system for the… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Most every time I go to a concert I come with the same feeling - why did it sound so bad? I’ve posted the following a few years ago, but it’s still holds true things never seems to get much better. Concert sound reinforcement equipment is better than ever, yet we’re frequently burdened with a mess of auditory goo that just sucks the enjoyment from a live event. Unfortunately this happens much… View this story

    As referenced in the article “When the show hits the fan,” there was a gig we pulled off without any of our gear. That’s right. The truck never showed up. In that same article, I explained the dark art of staying calm and resolving issues without inciting panic in those who carry the check books. For this particular adventure, the job of driving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of our precious equipment from Georgia to Texas was given to… View this story

    When first starting down the audio path, I eagerly read every scrap of information I could get my hands on about how the “pros” approached their craft. What kind of gear were they using? What techniques? What was the “secret sauce”? In the late 1980s, I was much more interested in recording and had not yet seen the light about live sound reinforcement. And in those days, the Lord-Alge brothers were a big deal in the recording world. While Home… View this story

    Musician and comedian Reggie Watts articulates his mission to educate people about why sound matters and explains the transformative effect a new Meyer Sound system has brought to his band’s performances at the El Cid nightclub in Los Angeles. “With high-quality sound, musicians don’t play as loud.

    This article is provided by   While continuing the journey to find my niche in this industry, I’m being exposed to many new things. One of which is booking a front of house gig with a band that is supporting a well-known band doing underplay shows around the U.S. Working with a support band is new to me – previously I’ve only worked with the headliner, mixing or as a system tech. I took this gig with a whole… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   During the first listen-through of an object-theater exhibit project (Home Place Minnesota) for the Minnesota History Center, one of the exhibit’s curators, a highly-nervous new staff member, asked me whether the fiddle used to record the background music for a Finnish immigrant story was a genuine Finnish violin (though the voice talent wasn’t a Finn). I replied “Of course.” Curator mollified, onward and upward with the arts. The fiddle could have been made anywhere, woulda… View this story
