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

    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.

    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

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This isn’t the first time I’ve built a snake like this, nor is it the first time I’ve written about it.
