    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   As more churches add video to their worship services, there’s an increasing need to send audio from the mixing console to the camera. But don’t be tempted to just link the XLR line-level output of your console to the XLR inputs on the camera(s), because bad things can happen (as I’ll detail here). And yes, there’s often need to feed the same audio to multiple cameras in different locations around the room. So how… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   The last few months in my little corner of the AV industry has been met with some significant upheaval. At last count seven AV compatriots had lost their job or quit with no prospects on the table. The narcissistic part of me would claim that I was bad luck, but that’s just silly. Right? As I watch and help where I can, the question of what these fine AV professionals want to… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1 (loudspeakers) and part 2 (signal processing) of this series. The high-resolution dual-channel audio analyzer is a standard front-of-house tool in the modern sound system. There are quite a few versions available, such as Rational Acoustics Smaart, Meyer Sound SIM, SATlive, AFMG Sys-Tune, Metric Halo Spectrafoo, and more.  These tools are common, quite inexpensive, and offer information that’s fairly easy to understand and act upon. It was only a short time… View this story

    I’ll bet you have some of these, too: things people say or concepts they have wrong but won’t change, despite considerable evidence. The pro audio market is rife with some of these things. There are good reasons for us to keep doing what we’re doing – if it’s been working. (“If it ain’t broke” and so on.) Nevertheless, if we aren’t continuing to learn, grow and change, we’re stagnating or worse. O.K., let’s start with getting the ones with wireless… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: Another classic piece worthy of repeating. This one originally appeared on PSW in 2010. I was reading an article a while back about normal people who use computers and the power users (AKA IT guys) that support them. The article talked about the routine problems normal people had using computers and how challenging it was for IT guys to help them. Not because the IT guys couldn’t solve the problem, but… View this story

    How do we teach aspiring audio professionals to mix? How important is teaching? Can some people even be taught? I’ve seen debates in the ProSoundWeb LAB forums as to whether mixing sound can/can’t be taught. There are a couple of interesting books I’ve read that relate to this idea. The first one is “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel Levitin. Levitin addresses the age-old question of talent versus work effort, and essentially concludes that the real deciding factor… View this story

    According to an old axiom, “Everyone knows two things: their job and sound.” In other words, every audience member is an audio expert. Therefore, it is difficult to deliver a “good” mix since what is proper tonal and level balance to one person is inappropriate to another. A healthy relationship between the front of house engineer and the audience rests on the engineer’s ability to provide a mix acceptable to a plurality of the listeners’ ears. To achieve success, the… View this story
