    Two leading Swiss universities have equipped lecture halls with Meyer Sound CAL 64 column array loudspeakers to provide intelligible voice reproduction in challenging acoustical environments. Identical CAL systems at ETH Zurich and the University of Basel apply advanced beam steering technology to custom tailor uniform coverage of two differently shaped lecture halls, greatly improving students’ intelligibility of instructors’ voices. “Thanks to the vertical steering capability of CAL, we were able to precisely direct the beam angles to the seating areas… View this story

    From the January 1989 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Barry McKinnon interviews a pioneer of our industry. Every industry has its pioneers, those individuals who took the first stab at a field no one else considered or wanted to try, and the sound reinforcement industry is no different. Bill Hanley has been in the mobile sound reinforcement business for more than 30 years and has been involved with major artists and events such as the Beatles… View this story

    US Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump might not agree on much when it comes to political issues, but one thing they all have in common is DiGiCo’s new S21 digital audio console. Over the past few months, Milwaukee-based SR provider Clearwing Productions has been using the compact desk to mix sound for the three candidates’ rallies and other political events throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Indiana. According to Clearwing’s Bryan Baumgardner, the S21’s onboard processing has eliminated… View this story

    Not so long ago, consoles with 32 channels and 16 auxiliaries could cover the requirements of almost any band and most festivals, but today, bigger shows often require 100 channels and 50 mixes or more. At the same time, the genre of large-format consoles continues to grow and evolve. The recently introduced Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 and Avid VENUE | S6L, both highly anticipated, have now been released and are seeing steadily increasing action in a range of applications. Further, Allen… View this story

    Modern opera productions depend on the singing technique of the main characters, the extravagant stage design or the musicians in the orchestra. At the same time, the directors achieve additional soundscapes with sound effects from the speaker. “Especially in modern productions, directors require us to produce various sound effects, create different spaces and connect with each other over the sound system,“ says Oleg Surgutschow, sound mixer at the Zurich Opera. In the historic hall, loudspeakers are mounted on a total… View this story

    If you happen to make your living from this industry, I have a thought for you to consider… Learn the art of customer service. Good luck with that idea, though. There aren’t a lot of great examples anymore. Just pick a random memory from any recent trip to a big box store or restaurant. Chances are, you encountered someone who hates their job, despises customers and has no intention of positively representing the company that is currently providing their paycheck.… View this story

    After a highly successful run in London at the Chocolate Factory, John Doyle’s The Color Purple opened at the Bernard B. Jacobs theatre on Broadway in December 2015, supported by HALO-C line arrays from EM Acoustics. Interestingly, Doyle’s latest version is a far cry from the original flamboyant Broadway show. This time Doyle opted for a much more streamlined, pared-down production, leaving more room for the performers to shine and for the intense emotions to resonate. Just as he did… View this story

    What Is It? A high pass filter, or HPF, is exactly as it sounds.  It is a filter we can use on our soundboards that ONLY allows the higher frequencies pass. It is sometimes referred to as a Low Cut filter for a similar reason. It is also the most overlooked tool in the sound engineer’s arsenal. Where It’s Found. Some soundboards only have a High Pass Switch which is fixed at a certain frequency, often 80Hz or 100Hz.  This… View this story
