    Welcome to our quiz featuring 20 questions about stage monitoring and related issues. This is somewhat subjective and largely intended for entertainment purposes—better known as FUN for short - -although there is fact and/or truth in many of the “correct” responses. Time for the obligatory non-apology: “We apologize if this quiz offends anyone. That is… er, is not... our intention. Besides, if you don’t like it, we’ll just claim you took it out of context.” Enjoy! 1) Why do vocal… View this story

    Now in their 20th year of touring with Meyer Sound systems, Dave Matthews Band (DMB) once again relied on a LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system for its recent 20-city tour of European arenas. As the band’s system of choice since 2013, LEO is the latest in a line of Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems provided by longtime supplier Pro Media/UltraSound, dating back to DMB’s first major headline tour in 1996 with an MSL-3A conventionally powered loudspeaker system. “I find that… View this story

    Avant garde cellist Rushad Eggleston, also known as the Ambassador of Sneth or the Cello Goblin is an entertainer unlike most cellists; strapping his instrument on and delivering high-energy vocals as he moves around the stage. That’s precisely why he depends on his ISOMAX Headset microphone from Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates. Eggleston was educated at Berklee College of Music and, while there, developed his ‘rootsy,’ energetic style of music that has since become his musical signature. In addition to… View this story

    “Subwoofers should be located on the floor if at all possible.” This is one of those classic bits of audio “conventional wisdom.” I hear it from system operators on nearly every project. But is it true? If we look at the physics of sound, we learn that, as with most things in the world of audio, “it depends.” So let’s start by discussing why the floor might indeed be a good place to put subwoofers. Placing any loudspeaker against a… View this story

    Phil Vaught isn’t your ordinary country artist, so it’s no surprise that he won’t settle for ordinary equipment. When the crossover musician recently needed new monitors for the 200 performances that take him all over the country, annually, he chose FBT’s StageMaxX 12ma. The wedges, which he praises for their “big sound in a little box,” have turned out to be just as impressive – and unique - as Vaught’s music. Influenced by artists ranging from Elvis to Foreigner, and… View this story

    When metalcore band Return to Rome learned it was going to perform at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in England, founding member and current bass player Harri Lowe became laser focused on the finer points of sound and tone. Lowe selected Harman’s dbx 676 Tube Preamp Channel Strip for the performance because of the depth and clarity it brings to the band’s sound. Lowe got his hands on the dbx 160A at his first studio job at an independent label,… View this story

    Karl Winkler’s reference to “great quotes” in his recent column (here) got me thinking about the many (too many to count, in fact) insightful comments that have appeared on the pages of ProSoundWeb and Live Sound International over the years. It lead to a weekend of reading more than a hundred archived articles, and from them, I’ve drawn the following quotes about the world of pro audio. “People don’t come to hear me mix, they come to hear the act.… View this story
