    As the use of wireless systems continues to grow and the available wireless spectrum continues to shrink, the need for someone to coordinate all of that wireless on any given event becomes greater. It’s why you’re increasingly likely to encounter a frequency coordinator on a show or tour. With this in mind, and as a frequency coordinator, I’ve come up with a list of frequently asked questions about what I do. What is a frequency coordinator? A person (or team… View this story

    In November of 1997, I ruined my wife’s life. Well, maybe not her life… But definitely the way she listens to music. After explaining the mixing process and how we listen to specific sounds and their relationship to other sounds, she began listening differently. She began to point out reverb tails. She noticed variations to drum tones and the amount of distortion on guitars. She even picked up on loops versus recorded instruments occasionally. During a road trip, we were… View this story

    I first started reading Live Sound International during high school (literally, during school), and I distinctly remember feeling frustrated by the professionals’ jargon. To that point, the sum total of my experience was “guess/test/revise” with whatever gear my school had lying around. I understood some concepts, but not the terms for them. I knew how to ring out a monitor, but I had no idea that process was called “ringing out.” I just knew it was a thing you were… View this story

    A recent conversation with another engineer got me thinking about experiences that shaped my skills. While in the trenches, certain restrictions and limitations were aggravating and occasionally provoked fits of rage. However, in hindsight, those same events were actually beneficial to developing my skills. Budget Restrictions Many, many…. many years working with churches teaches you one incredibly important skill… Making do with what you have. Part of what established me as a moderately well-respected system installer was my understanding of… View this story

    I’ve heard it said many times, in many different situations, that we tend to think we don’t have time to do something right, but then somehow, have time to fix everything that goes wrong as a result. We all know Mr. Murphy and his law about things tending to go wrong if there is any possibility for them to do so. But what can we do about it? For starters, correct that first part - the thing about making sure… View this story

    Although Art Steele professes to a motto of marrying technology with music on the web site of Sweet Honey In The Rock, the Grammy Award-nominated a cappella ensemble with whom he has worked for over three decades, his motto might also be: “Have bag, will travel.” Steele, audio mixer and technical director for the African-American female vocal group for over three decades, has put together two shoulder bags loaded with different sets of Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless equipment, picking up… View this story

    Recently a young person asked me about my work, and as I explained some of the various aspects, it triggered something in my brain. I realized that I had actually just barely scratched the surface in terms of telling him about the wide range of responsibilities that many of us have. For example, we’re regularly involved with sales before the show (and often during and after). From simply speaking to clients about their needs, to putting bids together, to being… View this story

    DPA microphones played a key role in sound quality for the Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland, which made its London debut over Easter with a special concert at the Barbican. First formed by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in the late 1980s, the National Folk Orchestra of Ireland has always attracted the most gifted young Irish musicians and singers. At the Barbican, the 60-plus musicians in the Orchestra were performing Macalla 1916 - a new commission by composer and conductor Michael… View this story
