    Point Source Audio has introduced the CO-5w, a new “unsinkable” waterproof earworn microphone outfitted with a special water-protected mic element. The CO-5w offers omnidirectional polar pattern that allows a 360-degree pick-up of sound, providing a natural blend of voice and ambience. The design of the CO-5w also lends itself to reduced speech produced “popping sounds” and voice overloads in close mic applications. “We’re super excited about our ‘unsinkable’ feature,” says Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing at Point Source Audio.… View this story

    It’s always been amusing to watch the band set up. The guitarist brings his amp, a few pedals, and maybe a couple of guitars. The bass player brings his instrument, and often his own amp. The drummer uses the church’s drum kit, but he brings his own sticks and takes the time to tune and position the drums to his liking. But the vocalist just uses whatever mic is handed to them. My experience has been that the choice of… View this story

    My Baltimore-area high school theater was outfitted with the first quality PA system I ever worked with. It had JBL horns and cabinets in a center cluster, powered by Crown amplifiers, with a 6-channel TAPCO mixer in the sound booth and Electro-Voice 664 microphones on stage. Initially, to my finely tuned 10th grade ears, the system didn’t sound very good – the performers could barely be heard, and there was a lot of feedback. It wasn’t long before I figured… View this story

    Several years ago, I was invited to be a presenter at an audio industry trade show, and while there, I greatly enjoyed meeting some fellow presenters. In fact, after the convention center hall closed, eight of us audio “geeks” went to enjoy dinner together, and it turned out to be a fun—and instructive—evening on many levels. At one point, as we were seated around the table, someone in the group posed this hypothetical question: “If you got a call to… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I received an e-mail inquiring about microphones; specifically what constitutes a good microphone. The reader had seen my post on rechargeable batteries and noticed that I was using Shure SM58 capsules on the mics under test. That made him wonder about the report he had just received from a consultant who had reviewed their church’s A/V systems. From the report, to wit: “Good quality microphones give the biggest performance increase for the money… View this story

    Heil Sound has released an upgraded version of its PR 35 handheld dynamic microphone. Changes include a new chassis, resulting in cosmetic differences with the old model. In addition, rear rejection has been increased to -42 dB with the upgrade. A concealed two-position roll off switch replaces the former thumb switch. The PR 35 ships with three interchangeable colored trim collars that can be mixed and matched. The new PR 35 will be priced the same as the current model… View this story

    Lectrosonics is pleased to introduce the release of Version 5.1 firmware for the company’s Venue Wideband modular receiver system. The V5.1 firmware provides an important enhancement that will be most beneficial to broadcast, location, and sound reinforcement professionals—the capability of a “TalkBack” function compatible with the newly introduced HH handheld transmitter. When the transmitter is set to TalkBack mode and the function is engaged (activated when the user presses the multi-function button on the HH transmitter), the audio will switch… View this story

    One of the key aspects of any successful business is its ability to listen to its customers. Such is the case at Noble Street Studios, Toronto’s newest premiere downtown recording studio. The studio recently added an SF-24V vacuum tube stereo ribbon microphone and two R-122 active ribbon microphones from Royer Labs View this story

    Originally launched in 1993, AKG C3000 condenser microphone brought a remarkable level of quality and performance to musicians and sound engineers with a foundation of audio perfection and reliability. With the C2000, C4000 and C4500 BC debuting in the following years, the Project Studio Line was born. Nearly 20 years later, AKG’s has relaunched the Project Studio Line, with a cost-effective, aesthetically beautiful set of mics, channelling the popular characteristics it maintained in the ‘90s.  The revamped Project Studio Line’s… View this story
