    For the past three and a half decades, saxophonist Bill Evans has been dazzling audiences around the world with his deeply passionate and unique sound. For Evans, delivering a pure reproduction of his acoustical sound every time he takes the stage for a live performance is extremely important. That’s why when Evans was familiarized with the DPA Microphones d:vote 4099S instrument microphone for saxophone, he knew he found the precise sound that he was looking for and has consistently relied… View this story

    church sound

    Denominational and theological differences between churches are as weak as sewing thread in comparison to the divisive question of drums in a worship service. Where some congregations see a method of regulating tempo and establishing new musical styles, others envision a source of noise and an infiltration of secular values. Should churches incorporate percussion instruments into their musical compositions? If so, how should appropriate use be determined, and by whom? Is an acoustic drum set superior to an electronic one?… View this story

    Acoustic performances, and the instruments themselves, usually need to be handled differently than the electronic side of things. Thumping kick drums, compressed bass guitars and the like are not the norm for performances intended to be more musically subtle. A more natural sound is desired and it starts with microphone choice and deployment. Fortunately, most instruments can be picked up quite nicely with just three types of mics that most sound folks already have in their inventories. A mic locker… View this story

    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
