    System designers interested in understanding room acoustics, loud-speaker characteristics and how they act in enclosed spaces are encouraged to attend SynAudCon’s “Sound System Design” in-person seminar scheduled for February 22-24, 2016 in Houston, Texas. The in-person seminar, presented by SynAudCon owner Pat Brown, presents a logical, intuitive, and comprehensive approach to sound system design that begins with analysis of the room’s acoustics. From there attendees learn how to select and place loudspeakers to achieve speech intelligibility and music clarity. In… View this story

    There are many different ways of checking PA systems. Some of us play music and walk around the venue, while others use sweeps or pink noise and deploy on a measurement program. Many do a combination of both. Regardless, at some point in the process, we usually grab a microphone and listen to the PA with our own voice. Witnessing hundreds (thousands?) of these voice checks over the years has led me to compile the following “types.” Which one do… View this story

    Outline is showcasing a selection of point source and line array loudspeaker lines and an interactive loudspeaker measurement display at ISE 2016 Amsterdam booth #7-E220. The new compact Vegas 24 is ideal for balcony fill, front fill and delay applications. This lightweight loudspeaker is optimized for vocal and instrument intelligibility and clarity due to its high Common Intelligibility Scale (CIS) rating and dipole waveguide loaded design. The STADIA 100 LA installation loudspeaker series combines key principles of cylindrical line-sources with… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   There has been a lot of discussion about how loud we run our services. I got to thinking about this recently while going through a thread on the Church Sound Forum. The question was posed, “How loud at FOH?” The answers varied greatly, from in the mid 80s to well over 105 dB SPL. Then a debate ensued about whether the metering of the sound should be done with A-weighting, C-weighting, fast or… View this story

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Signal path refers to the path that sound makes while being processed. Recording signal paths include: Sound Source > Capturing Device > Wire From Capturing Device To Console Channel Input > Channel Volume, EQ, Etc. > Channel Output To Recorder Track Mixing signal paths include: Recorder Track To Console Channel Input > Channel Processing, Volume, Pan, Etc. > Channel Output To Stereo Bus > Main Stereo Output Master Fader > Final Mix In… View this story

    Those of us who indulge in live sound spend countless hours paying attention to every detail in the audio signal chain - comparing, pondering opinionating and deciding every issue that crosses our path. Does this mixing console sound better? Do I need to spend an extra $2,000 on a vocal compressor? Can you please move the guitar mic two millimeters to the left? Does phantom power really ruin ribbon mics? One question persists, however: to what end is all this… View this story

      Site surveys are a necessary part of all construction trades. The ground must be firm enough to support the building. The water must drain properly. There must be adequate ingress and egress. The list goes on. Sound system designers should also perform a site survey of the auditorium to determine the conditions in which the new sound system must operate. There are a multitude of parameters that can be measured in a building, but it won’t be possible, practical… View this story

    Editor’s Note: This article appeared in the premier issue of Live Sound and Touring Technology, a supplement to Recording Engineer/Producer magazine, published in January 1992. It provides an interesting time capsule on the state of the sound reinforcement and loudspeaker market of the time in addition to offering salient information that’s relevant today. By the way, that fledgling publication now goes by the name of Live Sound International and will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2016. Few areas in modern… View this story

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   “Can you come to our church and run sound in a few weeks?” “Can you run sound for my band next weekend?” Work as an audio geek long enough and you’ll get these questions, usually followed by the statement, “Don’t worry, we’ve got all the gear, you just need to show up.” Danger Will Robinson! I’ve been in these situations and one thing’s for sure: it’s never as easy as it sounds. Standard… View this story

    rational acoustics

    Feed The Brain. The primary job of a measurement rig is to acquire electrical and acoustical signals and feed them to the processor so that it can analyze, compare, slice, dice, fold, spindle and mutilate those signals and produce multi-colored charts, graphs and the all-important squiggly lines. “But my software can produce squiggly lines all by itself without all those bothersome wires, preamps and microphones. Isn’t that enough?” Maybe. It depends on whether you are getting paid to pose or… View this story
