    Chicago-based sound engineer Aaron Patkin went on the road mixing monitors for Chance The Rapper, one of hip-hop’s fastest-rising young stars, in early 2013. Since then, the artist has progressed from Internet sensation to main stage attraction, as evidenced by his acclaimed performance as a final-night headliner at this summer’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago. Over that time, Chance (full name Chancelor Bennett) has gone from being a voice-and-DJ act to having a full live touring band. However, one thing has… View this story

    When Elevation Worship, the house worship band for the 11-campus-and-growing Elevation Church, takes the stage, they really take the stage, with nearly 20 musicians and vocalists performing songs that have taken them to the top of both Christian and secular music charts. So when the band was preparing for what will become its fourth live album, recording at the 20,000-seat Time Warner Cable Arena in the group’s home city of Charlotte, NC, a huge number of channels would be needed,… View this story

    Neumann has expanded the KH line with its first midfield monitor, the new KH 420, an active 3-way system (10-inch + 3-inch + 1-inch) well suited for larger 5.1 and 7.1 configurations and listening distances of up to 11 meters (more than 30 feet). The KH 420 is specified as provided a 26 Hz corner frequency, a whole octave lower than the KH 120. For even lower bass reproduction for surround systems with a dedicated LFE channel, users can add… View this story

    Harman’s JBL Professional has introduced the first two models in its new 7 Series Master Reference Monitors, the 708i and the 705i. Both 2-way designs, the new 708i (8-inch) and 705i (5-inch) incorporate a new miniature high-frequency transducer—the 2409H—utilizing JBL’s low-mass, annular diaphragm design that allows very high output with low distortion and high frequency response to 35kHz. JBL also engineered two new high-excursion 5-inch and 8-inch woofers, the 725G and 728G, that deliver robust low-frequency output into the 30… View this story

    Barefoot Sound has unveiled its newest studio monitor, the MicroMain45, a 3-way active monitor with controls for equalization contour and an input level stepped attenuator. The new MicroMain45 offers the same signal path, amplifier and driver technologies as the flagship MiniMain12, but is stripped down to the bare essentials to deliver high performance at a more affordable price.  The cabinet has a total of 14 liters internal volume, sealed woofer and midrange enclosures, machined aluminum baffle plate, and long fiber… View this story

    Designed for critical listening in the studio or at home, the new PreSonus Temblor T8 active subwoofer complements any full-range monitoring system, making it well-suited for personal studios, gaming, audiophiles, and home theaters. Like its larger sibling the Temblor T10, the T8 naturally extends the low-frequency response of full-range loudspeakers without overshadowing them. It delivers punchy, musical lows and offers user controls that include a continuously variable low-pass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz) for creating a smooth crossover transition… View this story

    Genelec has introduced the new 8351, a 3-way Smart Active Monitor (SAM), designed with mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs linked closely together. The 8351 borrows its size attribute from Genelec’s 8050, with dimensions of 17.75 x 11.25 x 11 (h x w x d) inches. The center of the 8351’s enclosure is outfitted with the Minimum Diffraction co-axial midrange/tweeter driver evolved from the 8260, providing extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, with a very high degree of accuracy, both… View this story

    Ramon Morales has always loved music, playing guitar in his youth and eventually ending up behind a mixing console. After attending the recording program at The Art Institute of Houston (Texas), he served as an intern at one of the city’s top studios, and also mixed live shows whenever he had the opportunity. Both experiences put him on a path to working as a monitor engineer for top artists like Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, and currently, Lady Gaga. I recently had… View this story

    Justin Pommer is no stranger to the recording studio. After starting out as a drummer close to 20 years ago, Pommer began engineering in what he calls “mini-studios,” and over the past two decades in commercial facilities and various studios of his own, he learned his way around the mixing board, honing his sound and craft and ultimately moving into producing. Over those years, Pommer has recorded numerous artists that range from Tower Of Power to Tom Petty, and he… View this story
