    In its most basic form, a DI – also known as a direct box and short for “direct injection” and/or “direct insert” – takes an unbalanced high-impedance signal (i.e., from an electric guitar or keyboard) and converts it to a balanced low-impedance signal. This process is needed when running high-impedance signal at long distances, such as down a snake to a front of house console. Unconverted, the unbalanced signal can pick up noise; also, sending high-impedance signal at longer distances… View this story

    Earlier this year at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, I saw an abundance of new products from every corner of our industry. There were a few that captured my attention and begged for me to rip the credit card out, slash my way through the crowd and claim some new treasures. Yeah, I still get a little emotional over new gear. When I met Drago from Schertler, we talked about the new products they were introducing. The guitar amp collection… View this story

    The Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam returns to Nashville on November 30th for a star-studded show and Heil Sound microphones will once again be along for the ride. This year’s show will be a dual celebration. Dubbed the “Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam,” the concert combines Daniels’ 80th birthday into the Volunteer Jam. As Daniels says, “It’s pretty amazing that we’re both alive and kicking and still going strong.” The decision to mic the stage exclusively with Heil Sound microphones… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   The kick drum beater just tore clear through the drum head and there’s twenty minutes to replace it.  The drummer, Anthony, has the skills to do it. Not a problem. Wait, what do you mean the spare head doesn’t fit? Bring me the holy gaff tape!  Did it sound great? No, but it sounded good enough and got us through the remaining five songs. These things happen in live audio but… View this story

    Point Source Audio (PSA) has released comments by one of its early customers on how the company’s new EMBRACE earmounts performed during multiple production runs throughout a six month period. Sound supervisor Pierre Dupree of Houston’s Alley Theatre, who is no stranger to the world of arts and crafts in theatre mic’ing, says Point Source Audio’s patent-pending EMBRACE Earmounts are “worth their weight in gold.” Each of the theatre’s cast of 15 resident actors now have custom mics assigned to… View this story

    A Chorus Line, the nine Tony-Award winning musical featuring a group of dancers auditioning for their spot on a chorus line in a Broadway musical, has been performed in countless productions around the world. But the recent premiere as part of Ontario, Canada’s Stratford Festival marked the first time that the show has ever been modified – rearranged to take place on a thrust stage with the audience seated on three sides the show.  With surrounding angles of the production… View this story

    We’ve all been there. The room is highly reflective or the PA can’t be placed in a preferred location for whatever reason. Or both. Ideally, you’ve noted the challenges during a walk-through and can put some thought into an overall approach and a system design that will produce success despite the obstacles. My most recent “nightmare room” serves as an example of what can be done. The space was square with two glass walls of full-length windows, two more walls… View this story
