    Touted as an “epic biblical adventure, Godspeed: A Rock Opera was presented in a special, limited showing at the El Portal Theatre in Hollywood, featuring a six-piece live, progressive rock band and 16 accompanying singers and dancers.

    When Crossroads.TV Church moved to a new facility-the former home of a multiplex movie theater-in Lancaster, OH, it was clear the expanding congregation would benefit from a new sound system. Having already worked with the church on the audio install at their Lithopolis, OH, campus, Crossroads.TV entrusted Dave Lowery and Matt Price from Sound Inspiration (Columbus, OH) to design and deploy the new PA featuring VUE Audiotechnik‘s al-4 Subcompact Line Array System. The PA system requirements at Crossroads.TV Church are… View this story

    Preserving our hearing is critically important, but that’s not what motivated me to write this piece. Really, I just can’t stand bad sound! To a certain extent, it used to be somewhat excusable if a live show was loud and didn’t sound all that great. Sound reinforcement systems have come a long way in the past decade alone, but ‘back in the day’” good clean power was harder to come by, and loudspeakers just were not designed to produce high-fidelity… View this story

    As the city’s main stage for operetta, opera, musicals and ballet, Vienna’s Volksoper is an incredibly busy theatre with some 300 performances of around 35 different productions staged every year between September and June. Delivering such a high volume of performances requires a great deal of effort from everyone involved, especially the sound department, who turn to DPA Microphones to meet such a strenuous demand. “To cope with such an intense workload, our sound equipment has to be flexible, durable… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the Radial Catapult - a 4 channel audio snake that lets you send analog and AES digital audio signals over standard cat-5 shielded twisted pair cable. This enables system contractors to take advantage of pre-wired networks to connect one room to another and allows stage techs to take advantage of the relatively low cost of this abundantly available cable for return snakes or for transporting channels of balanced audio across a large stage. Available in six configurations,… View this story

      The reverberation time (RT) is one of the most fundamental room measurements. It gives a broad brush stroke description of the general acoustical behavior of a space, paving the way for the use of other metrics to determine clarity and direct-to-reverberant ratios. Wallace Clement Sabine was the first to formalize the RT into an acoustic metric. His method of measurement involved a program source, a stopwatch and a quiet room. Sabine determined that 60 dB of room decay was… View this story
