    It’s a Monday afternoon and I get a phone call from a local production company to work a press event the following day at a local race track (local being an hour and half away). I accept the gig and the next day hop on my bike (the motor-driven type) and go to the track, and specifically, the large circus-type tent where the event is being staged. No equipment truck in sight, of course. A quick phone call to my… View this story

    The Britannia Stadium is the home of Premiership Football Club Stoke City. The grounds, which cost £15 million, opened in 1997 by Sir Stanley Matthews. As a top-flight arena with a capacity of 28,000 spectators, the need to clearly deliver information throughout the venue is of great importance. From safety announcements and music, to team changes and minutes of added time, stadium announcer Steve Buxton is a busy man. Until recently, Buxton mixed output received via walkie-talkie behind glass—a less… View this story

    As any live sound engineer will tell you, touring mid-sized clubs is not for the faint of heart. Confronting the daily surprises of a new room, with a new sound system and a new console, can make or break the band’s show - and their audience. For Val Foster, engineer for Seattle hip hoppers Grieves, the solution was simple - using Mackie’s DL1608 digital live sound console with iPad control, Foster can assure the band and audience a consistent show,… View this story

    It’s been a busy year for Grammy Award-winning mix engineer and avid blogger Gary Noble. His two highest-profile projects each earned a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. For both New York: A Love Story and ONE: In the Chamber Noble relied on his Metric Halo 2882 interface for monitoring and 80-bit summing; the Metric Halo Production Bundle plug-ins for flexible, great-sounding processing; and Metric Halo SpectraFoo sound analysis software to ensure the technical perfection of his work. For… View this story

    As a sound engineer working in the concert and corporate event markets, I’ve found it useful to identify my primary (most important) audience for every gig. Is it the band that hired me? The band manager? The promoter? The people buying tickets to the show? The people that own the venue? The sound company I’m working for? It can be tough to figure. The easy answer is you work for who pays you, but it can be a bit more… View this story

    The new PMP Series compact powered mixers offer three features you won’t find on competing models: Behringer’s ULM 2.4 GHz “wireless-ready” operation, high-end Klark Teknik digital Multi-FX Processors and Behringer’s patented FBQ Feedback Detection System. Designed to satisfy the requirements of a wide range of customers and applications, the four unique models provide input configurations ranging from 5 – 12 channels — and come in at half the depth and weight of most conventional designs. With 500-Watt Class-D power and… View this story

    Editors Note: For more information on console maintenance, check out Zen & The Art Of Mixing Console Cleaning & Maintenance. I’ve cleaned a lot of faders over the years and suppose I’ve gotten a little bold when it comes to tearing a fader apart and giving it a good bath. And I’ve learned the hard way just how much punishment a fader can take before it breaks.  In some cases, a certain amount of brute force is required to crack… View this story
