    Aiming to become a regional destination for concert entertainment as well as gaming, Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma has opened the Grand Theater, a multi-purpose venue featuring one of the largest Meyer Sound LEO Family line array system installations in North America. Since opening with a sellout show by Aerosmith, the Grand Theater has hosted acts such as Kiss, Kid Rock, Boyz II Men, and Kenny Rogers. “Listening to LEO is really like listening to a very high quality… View this story

    Originally constructed in the late 1960s, the Abilene Civic Center is a spacious, multi-purpose venue with a live performance theater, an exhibit hall and a large conference center that is now home to a new sound system supported by loudspeakers from Community Professional. In part because of its age, the conference center’s audio system did not meet the voice intelligibility or audio quality expectations of its many banquets, meetings, press conferences and other events, especially those that involved modern presentations… View this story

    A massive, all-Meyer Sound system of more than 600 loudspeakers recently supplied coverage for a festive crowd of over 300,000 that converged near the Mexico City suburb of Ecatepec for an open-air Holy Mass with Pope Francis. Held across a sprawling event site temporarily constructed on a vast rain catchment plain known as El Caracol, this was by far the largest event of Pope Francis’s five-day visit to Mexico. “We have had excellent results using Meyer Sound to ensure the… View this story

    Built in 1988, Lakeland Square Mall’s original sound system had aged and fallen into disrepair, prompting the mall owners called on MABE Production and Installation company – also of Lakeland, Florida – to revitalize it. Confronted with the need for multiple zones with plenty of power for long 70V runs and limited rack space, MABE specified an Ashly Audio Pema 8250.70 integrated Protea matrix 8x8 digital processor and eight-channel amplifier, which delivers 250W per channel in just two rack spaces.… View this story

    Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared on the original Live Sound International website in the late 1990s, and provides a lot of information that’s still relevant today. The first time I mixed a band—wow—it was like riding the musical equivalent of a mechanical bull, stuck on 10! There just seemed to be no way to keep everything under control. I just couldn’t keep the levels loud without them running away from me. Things would be alternately too loud or soft,… View this story

    When I first began doing sound, I bought a great set of headphones. I thought to myself—if I’m going to be expected to make something sound good, I should probably know what I’m shooting for. So I started listening (like crazy) to CDs. Not just bands or styles I liked, but anything and everything I could get my hands on. I listened to the lyrics, chords, melodies and harmonies, but also to how it all fit together. I concentrated on… View this story

    The City of The Hague’s national theatre group, ‘Het Nationale Toneel’ has incorporated TiMax SoundHub audio spatialization and TiMax Tracker automation into its most recent touring production, The Revisor. Four TiMax Tracker sensors are positioned above the stage area, picking up the zoned stage locations of the 20 ‘tagged’ actors, using their exact positioning, or ‘source zones’, to localize their vocals via the distributed loudspeaker system.  The TiMax SoundHub delay-matrix imaging creates an immersive experience that renders the production more… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the great things about the pro audio is that one has the ability to change one’s position on a particular topic. This is a fun one for me as I have argued on both sides of the issue at various points in my career. I suspect that the position I currently take might change again someday. Or not. One never knows.
