    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature offers an interesting discussion with a true “dynamic duo” of the recording world. Quincy Jones is interviewed first, followed by Bruce Swedien. This article dates back to October 1989. The text is presented unaltered, along with the original graphics. If the word “professionalism” can be epitomized by one of the most successful producers currently working in the recording industry, that man must surely be Quincy Jones. The… View this story

    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature is an interesting look back at techniques for recording electronic instruments. This article dates back to April / May of 1970. (Volume 1, Number 1). The text is presented unaltered, along with all original graphics. There are variations of three basic methods which seem to satisfy most requirements…that is, those requirements which don’t demand instant audio annihilation…for getting a signal out of an electronic musical instrument and… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   It’s been a long time coming, but we finally did it. For years I’ve wanted to update our stage lighting rig, but the funds have not been there. A few years ago, we managed to score some used High End Studio Color 575s which gave us some additional color backlight, but it wasn’t what we really wanted. But this year, our End Of Life savings plan starts paying off. 2013 is the year… View this story

    Like most production company owners, I regularly take stock of my equipment inventory, evaluating the need for updates or additions to match current and future needs. A recent audit led me to consider investing in higher powered 12- or 15-inch-loaded stage monitors. The process of investigating what matched our audio requirements with what’s available in the marketplace emphasized that there are a whole lot of variables beyond sound that come into play regarding the acquisition of new gear. All businesses,… View this story

    Stage rigging involves machinery. The various components of the system move and, because of that movement, the parts of the system will eventually wear out. That is the primary reason for having your stage rigging inspected. If that’s not motivation enough, there are several other reasons for an annual safety inspection. The people using the equipment may not know how to operate it properly, and therefore may cause damage to some of the parts. The equipment may not have been… View this story

    Don’t be surprised if you start “spotting” more LED spot fixtures on stages and at concerts . . . namely, the Satura Spot LED Pro from Elation Professional. This 300-watt RGBW moving head from Elation breaks new barriers as an LED spot, because its color-mixing engine produces an output in all colors that’s as bright and powerful as a traditional 575-watt discharge fixture. Not only does the Satura Spot LED Pro consume half as much energy as comparably bright traditional… View this story

    Music producer, writer and mastering engineer Paul Grundman has installed a pair of IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R155 acoustic-isolating monitor stands at his project studio to optimize the performance of his nearfield monitor speakers and ameliorate some of the control room’s acoustic irregularities. IsoAcoustics innovative speaker stands have a unique, patented isolation technology which effectively eliminates the transfer of energy to surrounding surfaces, providing better focus across the frequency spectrum along with enhanced stereo imaging. Grundman frequently collaborates with EDM artists Celeste and… View this story

    Calculating Illuminance Most manufacturers of automated lighting provide photometric data showing the throw distance, the beam, and field width as well as the illuminance in lux and foot-candles (fc). (1) By referencing the chart below (Figure 1),  the designer can quickly gauge whether or not an instrument will provide the target illuminance and field width at a given throw distance. A chart like this will get you in the ballpark, allowing you to select lighting instruments and rough in the… View this story
