    As any live sound engineer will tell you, touring mid-sized clubs is not for the faint of heart. Confronting the daily surprises of a new room, with a new sound system and a new console, can make or break the band’s show - and their audience.

Constructed in 1939, the Basilica of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus is a classic example, a massive Byzantine style structure adorned with Arabic-Egyptian ornamentation. As with many of the grand basilicas, the room’s acoustics have long been a challenge. Soaring walls, marble floors, wooden pews, and a massive 80-foot (25 meter)… View this story

    While it’s still common to see tours carrying racks of outboard processing and effects gear (of analog and digital varieties) for mix enhancement and to optimize certain system facets, the ability of modern digital consoles to provide these same capabilities is changing the game. Overall, the quantity of outboard gear needed to accomplish the same (and more) functionality has lessened, in some cases dramatically. Even smaller-scale mixers of recent vintage provide considerable capacity, ranging from multi-band EQ to sophisticated “signature”… View this story

    Jim Roese, owner of audio company RPM Dynamics and production manager/monitor engineer for Blondie, recently specified Mackie SRM loudspeakers in upgrading the stage setup at Bernie’s Bar, a live performance venue in Nashua, NH. Previously, hard rock and punk bands like Dop, The Misfits and Soil playing at Bernie’s were having a hard time with the club’s mix-and-match stage monitoring setup. For loud acts, stage volume is a primary concern, and the artists weren’t happy. At the same time, for… View this story
