    Simple Minds, the pop-rock band that first made waves in the 1980s, is currently in the midst of a UK and European tour, “Big Music + Greatest Hits 2015,” with front of house engineer Olivier Gerard (aka Gg) utilizing an Intelli-X 2 48 loudspeaker processor and system management device from Apex. “On tour you need to be both reliable and efficient,” explained Gerard, who’s been working with the band since 2009. “That means you need good tools. The Intelli-X 2… View this story

    signal path quality
    Jamie Anderson 08/30/13 02:21 PM,
    Editor’s Note: Be sure to see the related article by Jamie entitled “Anatomy Of A System Measurement Rig: Probes, Preamps & Processors”. While it may be counter-intuitive, for 99.52367 percent (roughly speaking) of common applications, the signal quality that our system measurement/analyzer rigs require to produce good measurements is, by pro audio standards, not really that high—particularly when compared to the signal quality demanded for studio recording or even simple listening. What we require from the signal transmission path in… View this story

    An important consideration in microphone use is acoustic interference, which can occur whenever delayed versions of the same sound are mixed together, acoustically or electrically. With mics, this may happen in several ways: mics of reverse polarity picking up the same sound, multiple mics picking up the same sound from different distances, a single mic picking up multiple reflections of the same sound, or any combination of these. The results are similar in each case, and include audible peaks and… View this story

    Measurement Software and Microphones
    Pat Brown 06/06/11 07:46 AM, 1 Comment
    If you are tooling up to do sound system work, you are doing it at a good time. There are many excellent acoustical measurement platforms to pick from. It is not so important which one you use, as to how you use it. Plan on lots of study, practice, experimentation and head scratching. In addition to software, you will need some associated goodies to round out your measurement rig. Since this question comes up often in the seminars, I decided… View this story

    church sound budget
    Curt Taipale 04/13/11 08:42 AM, 0 Comments
    How do you establish priorities for your operating budget each year? Do you have a five year plan for your ministry, a solid idea of where you want to be in the future, and a way to stay on task? Do you find yourself constantly putting out fires, using duct tape and tin foil solutions, and never quite hitting the mark? Consensus In preparing to write this article, I enlisted the help of our ChurchSoundcheck Discussion Group. I found their… View this story
