    In conducting demonstrations of the Quadra IEM (in-ear monitoring) system at the upcoming NAMM 2012 show in Anaheim, Lectrosonics notes that its booth - 6329 - will be an oasis of quiet amidst the usual show floor noise. The use of the Quadra IEM will highlight the effectiveness of the product while simultaneously enabling the company to be a “good neighbor” to others in attendance. Consisting of the M4R belt-pack diversity receiver and the M4T half-rack transmitter, the Lectrosonics Quadra… View this story

    NEXO 45N-12 stage monitors were recently utilized for a recent U.S. tour as well as a series of high-profile gigs in the UK by legendary singer-songwriter Ray Davies, founder member of The Kinks. Chris Wibberley, monitor engineer for Davies for 11 years, had a chance encounter with the 45N-12 wedges at last year’s PLASA show, which led to a demo, and almost immediately, use of the monitors at the Meltdown (UK) shows at the Royal Festival Hall in London. “We… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Headphone extensions have been the bane of many a sound engineer’s existence. The cables on IEMs are never long enough to get from the musician’s head to the Aviom or M-48, which means we need to provide some sort of extension cable. In the past, I’ve tried buying 1/4-inch headphone extensions and used 1/4-inch to 1/8-inch adapters, but those cheap, off-the-shelf adapters are very stiff and the adapters don’t always work. Recently, we’ve… View this story

    personal monitors
    Gary Zandstra 11/29/11 07:39 AM, 1 Comment
    I regularly hear complaints from musicians about being too isolated with they use personal monitor mixers with headphones: “I feel like I’m in a studio” and/or “I feel like I’m in my own separate world.”  These complaints often have merit because the only thing available to mix into their phones is the dry signals from the other instruments. To solve this issue I’ve tried - with good success - a few techniques. 1) Add a feed from an audience response… View this story

Two XL8s continue on Jamiroquai’s world tour, with Rick Pope at front of house and Tristan Farrow on monitors. “Out of all the digital boards that I’ve used in the live environment, the XL8 is sonically by far the best,” says Pope of the XL8. “The definition in one’s mix can only be described as 3-D; I have… View this story

    Radial Engineering has introduced the MC3 studio monitor controller, a “straight wire” passive monitor switcher and headphone amplifier designed to provide smaller production studios with a cost-effective yet high-performance monitor, sub and headphone management system. Designed for active nearfield monitors, the MC3 is equipped with two stereo outputs and a separate send to feed a sub-woofer.
