    Following the debut of the KH 120 two-way active nearfield monitor last fall, Neumann has announced the launch of the KH 810 and KH 870 active subwoofers.

    Bellowhead, a U.K.-based folk ensemble and darlings of the European festival circuit, utilized QSC Audio K Series active loudspeakers — ten K10s and two K12s — as on-stage monitors throughout their recently completed tour of England, in support of last year’s ‘Hedonism’ album. The band, four times named Best Live Act at BBC Radio 2’s annual Folk Awards, needed powerful and reliable on-stage monitoring system for their recent tour. The band’s front of house engineer for the tour was Alastair… 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

    Britannia Row Productions is enjoying a busy autumn and winter season, with its entire Midas digital inventory out on major international tours. 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. Each may be precisely set using a trim control thus allowing seamless switching between loudspeakers. Separate on-off switches allow any or all to be… View this story

    Earlier this year, the Chicago White Sox selected Shure PSM 900 wireless personal monitor and UHF-R wireless microphone systems to serve critical applications at U.S. Cellular Field. Upgrading from the Shure PSM700, the White Sox organization was looking to offer pre-game entertainers durable products with exceptional sonic quality. Shure’s market development team also provided counsel on FCC regulations, and worked with their audio team to help them operate within the newly-designated spectrum band. “It’s important in broadcasting audio to have… View this story

    It’s important to adopt strategies for remaining sane while mixing monitors in churches. I touched upon some of those strategies in a previous article, where the focus was on how to group multiple musicians together to obtain positive results, how to stay organized, and how to run a sound check. All of the above assumes you’re mixing monitor wedges for the stage. Wedges work well in some circumstances, but have many downsides. Being loudspeakers, they obviously add to the mix… View this story
