    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

    From the August 1985 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, David Scheirman takes a look at the touring setup for the international tour of the legendary band, Toto.

    When D.L. Coburn’s Pulitzer Prize-winning show, The Gin Game, returned to the John Golden Theatre (where it first appeared in 1977), Masque Sound helped raise the stakes with a custom audio equipment package including a Yamaha console and Meyer Sound loudspeakers. Starring two-time Tony Award-winner James Earl Jones and three-time Emmy- and Tony Award-winner Cicely Tyson, The Gin Game tells the story of Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey who meet on the porch of their nursing home and strike up… View this story

    Dear Young Soundman, I finally got my first gig to tech a real system, using giant line arrays in a multi-level performance hall for a one-off performance of some ’70s band I’ve never heard of. I flew out and met the rest of the crew, and was told that the main person to make happy was the front-of-house operator. While this seems simple enough, he asked some basic questions like “How are you going to tune the room”, and so… View this story

    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 acts prefer… 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
