But recently I was asked to do front of house for a… View this story

This enhances the articulation and intelligibility of voices, but when applied to instruments, it can add coloration that’s detrimental. Vocal mics also tend to roll off lower end frequencies (below the voice range) to help eliminate handling… View this story
