    During a session, I remember when an artist was on mic, out in the studio ready to start vocal overdubs, and the producer asked: “How do we look in here from out there?” Interesting, because he knew the appearance of the control room to the artist might affect the vocal performance. The control room (from the studio) does look like an aquarium with the huge window and the silent action of the animals encased within it. Reactions to performances reflected… View this story

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   Lapel (also commonly called lavalier) microphones have served churches and other audio applications admirably for decades. They’ve been a great tool and are often still preferred for a controlled sound environment like a video recording studio or TV newsroom. But for live sound applications, earset (a.k.a., earworn or headworn) mics have quickly found favor with church sound techs and pastors alike. Think back with me for a moment. How did we start… View this story

    Indiana Wesleyan University’s 350-acre campus is outfitted with the Phillippe Performing Arts Auditorium, where the university hosts a number of concerts, lectures, family camps, and more. Recently, the performance center required an audio overhaul to replace old and outdated microphones and sound equipment. The school tasked Phil Huber, technical coordinator of sound, lighting, and media group, and interim director, to identify a new microphone system setup. Huber turned to Shure ULX-D digital wireless and installed eight channels with a combination… View this story

    When Bill Alford, owner of Showtec Productions, first took over the company in 2011, he wanted to compete with the bigger production companies, so he began to update his equipment. As part of this upgrade, he knew that DPA Microphones would provide the perfect audio support. Alford successfully won the bid for the 35-year-old B.B. King Homecoming Festival, where he was tasked with supplying the gear for the stage sound. At the B.B. King Homecoming Festival, Alford used two d:facto… View this story

    I’ll bet you have some of these, too: things people say or concepts they have wrong but won’t change, despite considerable evidence. The pro audio market is rife with some of these things. There are good reasons for us to keep doing what we’re doing – if it’s been working. (“If it ain’t broke” and so on.) Nevertheless, if we aren’t continuing to learn, grow and change, we’re stagnating or worse. O.K., let’s start with getting the ones with wireless… View this story

    Much pro audio industry humor revolves around techs versus musicians. By their very nature, techs are knowledgeable problem solvers. The flip side of this nature are musicians who “don’t let knowledge get in the way” of their artistic pursuit. Hence the endless put downs: “Can you read music? Not enough to hurt my playing.” “What do you throw a drowning guitarist? His amp.” “Why did the drummer leave his sticks on the dashboard? So he can park in the handicap… View this story
