    Neumann is expanding the successful KH line with its first midfield monitor – the KH 420. The active 3-way system (10-inch + 3-inch + 1-inch) is ideal for larger 5.1 and 7.1 configurations and listening distances of up to 11 meters. With a corner frequency of 52 Hz, the KH 120 nearfield monitor set new standards in its class for low frequency performance. Neumann engineers have succeeded in raising the bar with the KH 420 too.

    Looking to provide contestants with professional-quality monitor coverage while maintaining a low visual profile on the sets of CBS’ Survivor and NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice reality television programs, Red Hook, New York-based Firehouse Productions relies on JBL CBT Series column speakers. Both television programs needed a loudspeaker option that could provide tight vertical coverage patterns while being easily hidden amongst the design of their sets. To do so, Firehouse Productions provided JBL’s CBT 50LA—a compact, 50-centimeter-high column that utilizes a straight… View this story

    Up to 10 musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive monitor mixes using an iPhone or iPod touch and Presonus’ free QMix app. QMix builds on PreSonus’ original Virtual StudioLive (VSL), which provides bidirectional computer control of PreSonus StudioLive-series mixers via FireWire. Next came StudioLive Remote for iPad, which provides wireless control of StudioLive mixers. “SL Remote is very useful for the front-of-house engineer but it’s overkill for onstage performers, and the cost of iPads can add up. That’s why we… View this story

    Most of the time, we’re dealing with non-professional musicians, limited equipment, and tight deadlines. While difficult, it’s not impossible to produce good monitor mixes and a good house mix. In most smaller churches, monitors are mixed from the front of house mixing position. Typically, smaller churches have 16- to 48-channel consoles that have 6 aux sends. On these consoles, aux channels 1 through 4 are pre-fader (or can be set that way with a switch), meaning the main house fader… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When it comes to problems people run into when building studios, few issues top floors and ceilings.

So, hopefully we can offer an explanation to these and a few other issues in this excerpt… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Before you can look at some accepted ways to improve your isolation, it’s important to look at all the things that won’t work. In this excerpt from The Studio Builder’s Handbook (written with Dennis Moody) is a list of various materials that you’ll often see attached to the walls of a space in hopes of increasing the isolation. However, they really won’t help much at all. • Mattresses: There are so many… View this story
