    Fostex has announced the first change to its 6301 Series of active monitor loudspeakers in more than 30 years of production, with the line now joined by new 6301N models.

    A stage monitoring system is, simply, a complete and independent second sound system for the performers rather than the audience, made up of monitor loudspeakers (also called monitors for short or wedges due to their shape), power amplification and signal processing. A monitor system can also have its own mixer/console, or receive a feed (or feeds) from the main system console. Note that adjustments made to the main system mix do not affect the monitor system mix, and vice versa.… View this story

    With a highly anticipated summer tour kicking off in just a few short weeks, Neon Trees are keeping busy polishing their trademark sound at their Provo, Utah studio. Along for the ride on this year’s tour will be a unique cross-stage monitoring and front-fill solution headed by VUE Audiotechnikal-8 and al-4 line array loudspeakers. “We’ve been using line array elements for additional monitor and side fill support since 2004,” explains production manager Mike Bangs. “Their low profile and high output… View this story

    A Behringer X32 digital console and S16 digital snake are pulling double-duty on the current tour by indie pop band Capital Cities in support of the multi-platinum single “Safe and Sound.” Production manager and FOH engineer Jason Stiegler made the call on taking the X32 and S16 combo on the road: “It was just a no-brainer. You’re looking at a desk that is the most efficient product you could possibly get, in addition to the fact that it’s the most… View this story

    As The Village in Los Angeles approaches its 50th year of compelling soundtracks and hit records, its technology and the artists who make it their creative home continue to evolve. Early sessions with the Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan still echo as contemporary hit-makers such as Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, and John Mayer track, mix, and master current classics, inspiring The Village to recently add a pair of ATC SCM25A compact 3-way studio monitors, distributed… View this story

    IsoAcoustics is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Dynaudio Professional. At this year’s ProLight + Sound show, Dynaudio Professional introduced a new series of near-field monitors, the BM mkIII Series, which will each come with an IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R acoustic isolation stand included. IsoAcoustics Stands’ patented isolation technology allows the monitor to literally “float” in free space, maintaining all movement on-axis, eliminating energy transfer to the surrounding surfaces. The result is markedly enhanced sound clarity, tightening up of the… View this story

    Though there are other conventions, it’s generally agreed that the kick drum goes into the first channel of the console, and for time immemorial, inordinate efforts have gone into tediously adjusting it. Sound check never really starts until after this first input has been tweaked to satisfaction. The kick drum is the cornerstone of rock. It puts the pop in pop music and is the one input that holds it all together. It’s the heartbeat of rock and roll. With… View this story

    monitors

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Simply, good monitors are very important. Video productions monitor using screens. Audio productions monitor using loudspeakers that are driven by amplifiers. Every decision made in a musical production (not only regarding sounds but also arrangements and even performances) is based on what everyone is hearing. For example, if you’re recording a bass sound and the monitors sound thin, you may mistakenly believe that the bass sound itself is thin and compensate by adding… View this story
