    Riedel Communications is sponsoring Monash Motorsport (MMS), a team of students from Australia’s Monash University that each year designs, builds, tests, and races an open-wheeled formula-style racecar in the renowned Formula SAE (FSAE) series. Using two-way Motorola radios and headsets supplied by Riedel, MMS team spotters, engineers, and drivers communicate with one another to ensure safe and effective testing and racing of the team car. “The radios provided by Riedel have been fantastic, and the reception is clear and crisp,”… View this story

With the show’s fast pace and multiple stages, most vocal mics and in-ear monitor systems were wireless, provided by ATK Audiotek. Using an artist-friendly approach, performers… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   If you’re like me, then a lot of your recording sessions in your studio involve you wearing several different hats. For me, I’m a musician, so I’m always recording myself. The problem is studios tend to be noisy. I like to get as far away from the computer and hard drive as I can. That means moving across the room. Then the problem, of course, is that now I’m very far away from… View this story

    Based on a book by Peter Stone and featuring music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, 1776 is a musical that draws on the events surrounding the creation and signing of the Declaration of Independence. While the show focuses on events dating back some 237 years, there’s nothing ‘historical’ about the American Conservatory Theater’s (ACT) audio attributes, which utilizes Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone technology. St. Petersburg, FL-based sound designer Kevin Kennedy was contracted to coordinate sound for the American Conservatory… View this story

    In the past year or so, several major players have introduced digital wireless microphone systems, ranging from entry level to professional units. While generally maintaining the traditional form and functions of the products, engineers have adapted concepts and techniques from computer networking, cellular telephones, and digital signal processing to enhance their performance. Expect this trend to continue, since the new technologies can provide advantages in dense RF (radio frequency) environments, as well as generally excellent audio quality. And in some… View this story

    church sound

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Whenever I hang out with fellow production guys at concerts, or at many larger churches, the tech guys always have radios. Usually compact Motorola or Kenwood units with those cool clip-on mics over their shoulder. While I certainly saw the usefulness of those radios, I figured we didn’t need them for our church. We’re not really that big, and the productions we do aren’t that involved. Then came Vacation Bible School (VBS)… For… View this story

    Drummer Queen Cora Dunham, currently on tour with Beyoncé, is utilizing a Sensaphonics 3D active ambient IEM system. “I started using the Sensaphonics 3D in 2007 when I was with Prince,” Dunham notes, “and I’ve been using them ever since. It’s an amazing system, so versatile and comfortable – much better than regular in-ears.” The 3D IEM system uses embedded microphones to capture the on-stage sound surrounding the performers, allowing them to hear everything around them while their ears remain… View this story

    Bruno Mars just finished the North American leg of his Moonshine Jungle Tour, a run that consisted of over 40 U.S. and Canadian dates, and now continues on to Europe before setting out to Australia and New Zealand in early 2014. Both Mars and his band are utilizing Sennheiser microphones and wireless systems on the tour. “When I took on the Bruno Mars gig over two and a half years ago, he and the background singers were using a competitor’s… View this story
