    In my lifetime, the size of sophisticated audio analysis systems has evolved from table top, to under-airplane-seat, to computer bag, to cell phone. The cost has evolved from the price of a nice automobile to that of a Happy Meal. As such, there are more audio practitioners than ever equipped to perform sophisticated loudspeaker and room measurements. Those who make the decision to get serious about this are faced with the daunting task of learning the ropes in order to… View this story

    Craig Leerman 07/15/14 12:01 PM,
    When done well, a live recording captures the energy and personality of the performance, along with the ambiance and (if desired) audience response. There are many different ways to record a live show, but regardless of the approach, a good recording starts with the right microphones, correctly placed. By “right” I’m referring to mics that fit the particular application, taking factors such as pickup pattern and SPL handling into account. Mics tend to be categorized as “live” and “studio.” Yet… View this story

    Perhaps more than any other pro audio component, microphones are a personal choice, subject to the specific preferences and goals of both users and sound techs/engineers. Manufacturers continue to create new mics in a wide range of formats, sizes, and price points, stemming from a healthy mix of innovative development, refinement of previous technologies, specialization of mics to specific applications, and changes in manufacturing. For decades, dynamic mics were pretty much the exclusive choice for live applications due to their… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   There are four wireless microphone mistakes that get a sound tech in trouble. The first mistake is one I’m often asked about. I’ll be upfront and say that I’ve made two of these mistakes. Two, maybe three. No, two. Forgive and forget, right? [sigh] 1. Allow signal seepage (that sounds… disgusting!) It goes like this; 1) Channel gain (trim) knob is at zero. 2) Fader is at unity or below. 3)… View this story
