    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. Brugmans is utilizing an L500 at FOH while Dijkstra employs an L300 on monitors. Both consoles have been supplied by Dutch hire and events production company Stagelight, and they’re using Dante AoIP network technology for audio transport. Brugmans was an early adopter of SSL Live technology,… View this story

    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

    Welcome to mixing monitor sound for a singer. There are many kinds of professional entertainers, songwriters and celebrities, but when working for that breed of performing artist who sings exceptionally well, a refined audio approach helps them do their best on stage. When she’s in her zone, a palpable connection to every member of the audience produces goose bumps and wet eyes. She’s easily identified because she holds the microphone in her hand. The Microphone For singers, the microphone is… View this story

    My company has worked countless smaller to mid-sized festivals and variety shows over the years, and through trial and error we’ve discovered several approaches and problem-solvers that make life a little easier when it comes to working with stage monitoring. As always, the first step to success is advancing the gig. We never take the promoter’s word that the riders we’ve received are current, so we call each artist’s representative to make sure we’ve got the latest monitoring requirements. The… View this story

    At NAMM 2016 in Anaheim, JBL Professional by Harman introduced the new SUB18 studio subwoofer, designed to deliver the very high continuous output and extremely low frequency response required by music professionals in the EDM and hip-hop domains, as well as those working in film and post production. Incorporating JBL’s 2269 low-frequency transducer with patented Differential Drive technology and specifically designed for studio use, SUB18 produces neutral low frequency response below 18 Hz, providing an accurate reference in the low… View this story
