    Natasha Khan, aka Bat For Lashes, is an English singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Monitor engineer Arron James Smith has been working with her on the promo tour for her new album, The Bride, a three date run of churches and cathedrals in the UK, and her appearances on Europe’s summer festival circuit. Smith’s console of choice is a DiGiCo S21. Smith has, he says, worked either end of the multicore and enjoys them both, but being at monitors allows him… View this story

    Grammy-winning artist Beyoncé’s Formation Tour requires 56 semi-trucks to transport elements such as a 60-foot-tall rotating LED “Monolith” that represents each chapter of the show, a treadmill runway and a secondary stage that stores and pours 2,000 gallons of water. When the show recently moved onto its European leg, it required five Boeing 747 aircraft to transport it, including a main arrays of 96 loudspeakers and three DiGiCo SD7 audio consoles provided by Eighth Day Sound. One is used at… View this story

    Special Event Services (SES) of Winston-Salem, NC recently purchased a new Yamaha PM10 Digital Audio Console and immediately put it out on tour with monitor engineer David Baker for Lynyrd Skynyrd. “After having owned many of the original PM1Ds, we were eagerly awaiting its successor, states vice president/co-owner/head of audio, Jason Farah. The Yamaha PM1D was such a reliable platform, there was no question we’d add the PM10 to our inventory.” Farah said SES still owns and uses Yamaha digital… View this story

    At the recent InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas, EM Acoustics introduced the new M-C12 and M-C15 coaxial stage monitors. Consisting of 1.3-inch HF/12-inch LF and 1.3-inch HF/15-inch LF coaxial drive units, respectively, the two monitors incorporate EM Acoustics passive crossovers for superior frequency and phase response, and and are designed to deliver very high gain before feedback. Each model requires only one amplifier channel and zero external processing. The M-C12 and M-C15 both include recessed 35 mm pole-mount sockets and… View this story

    A concert sound system is, in reality, two completely separate sound systems, joined at the hip by a split snake. Each system requires a skilled engineer, but the skill-sets between the two differ vastly. The thing that baffles me is how ill regarded the position of monitor engineer is among my brethren. It can be easily argued and defended that the monitor engineer works twice as hard as everyone else on the crew, unless he/she is lucky enough to have… View this story

    American indie pop duo Heffron Drive—Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt—reference their combined efforts with ADAM Audio A7X nearfield monitors as well as a Sub10 Mk2 subwoofer The monitors are a focal point in the duo’s San Fernando Valley studio that was designed and built by Schmidt. ”The A7X monitors have played a critical role during the production of our latest record; vocals sounded extremely natural with less coloration, as did the low-end, and the highs were smooth, with a clean,… View this story

    Front of house engineer Marty Brugmans and monitor engineer Jelmer Dijkstra both specified Solid State Logic SSL Live consoles for award-winning Dutch band Racoon on its extensive but intimate theatre tour around The Netherlands.

    I started out wanting to write about the design task of coming up with hybrid microphone and pickup rigs for Punch Brothers (a progressive acoustic band that I work with) and building a completely self-contained stage and mix system. But that initial focus has changed, where I now feel the need to share some of what I’ve learned by plugging it in to many different sound systems, as well as offer some observations on stuff that works and stuff that… View this story

    Augspurger has introduced the Solo 12MF, a compact active studio monitor for tracking, mixing, and mastering. The free-standing loudspeaker employs a single 12-inch low/mid driver along with the smaller MF (Midfield) horn that was introduced with the Augspurger Duo 8 Mini-Main monitor, which was nominated for a TEC Award in 2015. Like the Duo 8, the Solo 12MF is designed to fit in smaller control rooms where a traditional soffited main system would not be possible. Power is provided by… View this story
