    Located on 12 acres in the Link Valley community of southwest Houston, Emery/Weiner School is an independent Jewish day school serving grades 6 through 12. Its campus offers many impressive features, including state-of-the-art science and computer labs, art and music studios, a proscenium theater, and a new, full-length football field, Caress Stadium. For the new stadium, facilities manager Terry Nelson called on Houston design consultants touch thirty three (“t33”) to design and install a sound system based on Dante-enabled Symetrix… View this story

    It was 1984 when I first sat in front of an FFT (Fast Fourier transform) analyzer during a concert and made decisions about tuning sound systems. I’ve been doing it ever since, and have written a lot of articles and a few books about this, but these are usually very focused and detailed. This time I’ll go a completely different direction: a dartboard of 30 things I’ve learned in 30 years of being hyper-focused on one thing. No proofs or… View this story

    The Illinois State Fair staged its annual 11-day run from August 11-21 in the state capital of Springfield. Music is a big part of the fair, with a nightly grandstand stage attraction for crowds of up to 15,000. Mason Sound of nearby Jacksonville, IL, provided the sound system for the 13th year straight. For 2016, the long-time Electro-Voice XLC users brought along the new X-Line Advance system they purchased in March. X2-212/120 line arrays formed the core of the system,… View this story

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Sound waves vibrate up and down in repeating cycles while they bounce around. Besides having positive and negative phases (when the sound is going up or going down), the cycles have physical length needed for a complete cycle back to the starting point (“wavelength”). High-frequency sounds are made from rapidly moving sound waves that can complete a cycle in a short distance, while low frequency sounds are made from slowly moving sound waves… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you’re looking for a prime example of what Toffler wrote about in Future Shock, look no further than analog tape. In little more than a decade, the two-inch multitrack tape machine has gone from studio staple to relic rarity. And while many audio veterans wax nostalgic for that warm analog sound, few will admit to missing the work that went with it. These days, owning an analog tape machine is somewhat akin to driving… View this story

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   Electronic correction in the form of Equalization (EQ) is one of the most useful audio tools for loudspeaker compensation/correction, whether it compensates from non-linearities in the loudspeaker or for altering the effect of room acoustics. Two audio filter types are typically used: IIR and FIR. IIR stands for Infinite Impulse Response and FIR stands for Finite Impulse Response. Each has its own pluses and minuses. This article intends to introduce key… View this story

    Artistic, psychedelic rock foursome, Bo Ningen has recently added an Audient iD22 USB audio interface to their recording setup. Lead singer, Taigen Kawabe’s initial reaction to the new arrival was surprise at “the clarity and honest sounds from the iD22,” later adding, “I would say the mic preamp surprised me the most. It’s super-clear and can capture such a wide range of frequency.” A wide frequency range is certainly what these musical racketeers need, with Taigen confirming that the band… View this story

    When producer Greg Fidelman hunkered down to begin work on Metallica’s latest record, he knew that the (30) channels of vintage preamps the band had already in the studio would not be enough to simultaneously facilitate the multi-mic drum sound and detailed guitar micing setups he was envisioning for the sessions. He turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers to nearly double his available inputs, matching the sound of Metallica’s existing vintage gear with the added reliability of BAE’s modern construction and… View this story

    Maor Appelbaum has sometimes been mistakenly typecast as a heavy rock specialist. It’s true that he has done work for such artists as Rob Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen, Sepultura, Dokken, and Fates Warning. But his credits cover virtually every musical genre, including global stars like Faith No More, Yes, Meat Loaf, Walter Trout, and William Shatner, along with an assortment of jazz and classical artists. With his track record and client list, Appelbaum could use any equipment he wants, and his… View this story
