    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   This article originally appeared in the June 1983 issue of Recording Engineer/Producer magazine. The Grateful Dead have been playing their unique brand of improvisational, eclectic music going on 18 years now. Though their records are modest sellers, and more or less ignored by radio and the “establishment” press, the Dead are consistently among the highest-grossing concert acts in the country. What they do musically is improvisational, existential, and not always satisfactory; but since… View this story

    It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with technology. What used to be “merely” hardware now has a software component. Everything has layers, touch screens, and incredible power and flexibility, which is great. But the not-so-great part is that the learning curve is ever steeper. And while there are standards for MIDI, USB, .WAV, Ethernet, MADI, and many other methods of keeping all this gear connected and communicating, each mixing platform, DSP box and loudspeaker management unit has its own… View this story

    Tectonic Audio Labs has produced a 21-part technical video series explaining the function, performance and application of Distributed Mode Loudspeaker (DML) technology in its loudspeakers, which employ large format flat panel DML resonant mode devices to propagate audio. “DMLs produce audio in a fundamentally different way than a typical loudspeaker does,” explains Tim Whitwell, physicist and DML expert. “This technology can seem quite counterintuitive to those not familiar with resonant mode devices.” The Tectonic technical video series condenses more than… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” — George Santayana “Those who reject the achievement of past innovations are due a smack.” — George Tucker Ours is an industry driven by change. Margins and growth are, more often than not, based on a premise of installing what’s new in place of the old.

    At one time or another, all of us who have sat behind a mixing console at a show are asked “do you know what all those knobs do?” Of course the answer is “yes”—or at least it should be. What they don’t ask is “do you know anything about acoustics?” or “do you have a handle on power and grounding?” because these subjects are not nearly as interesting or obvious to the novice observer. Maybe the real question is along… View this story

    Several years ago I was managing a touring sound company, and we decided to take a stab at contracting. Because our expertise was in large systems, we focused on big installations like stadiums. In those days, most sports facilities were being designed with 12-channel boards, wimpy amplification and loudspeaker clusters kindly called “flying junkyards.” We perceived a huge gap between what was being offered to the average sports fan and what we were consistently providing to other entertainment patrons at… View this story

    Particularly over the past couple decades, meeting the needs for greater freedom and flexibility in live performance has meant that microphone companies have expended considerable effort designing and building the hardware to deliver the output wirelessly. Virtually every mic manufacturer has its own brand of wireless, and these units make up a significant portion of their microphone sales. Add the ongoing changes in the RF landscape and a voracious demand for spectrum from communications and consumer devices, and the pressure… View this story
