    In working with sound and acoustics, here’s something many of us do but may not actually think about enough: Comparisons between measured and predicted reverberation times (RTs). RT (a.k.a., “RT60,” “T60,” “T,” et al) is a widely used quantifier of the acoustical behavior of a room. Sound decays in a room. (Albeit less quickly in some rooms than in others, as we’re all painfully aware.) RT is defined as how long it takes sound in a room to decay by… View this post

    Lyric soprano, Jane Zoo, has recently finished recording her second album in the idyllic setting of a French country manor. The beautiful Manoir La Chaussée in Port de Roche near Langon, Brittany, became home to Jane Zoo, her musicians and recording team headed up by Innovason’s Hervé de Caro who also co-produced the album. The entire album was recorded on an Innovason Eclipse digital mixing console using digital microphones from Sennheiser. “It was a fabulous project,” said de Caro, who… View this post

    Crossover networks are not unique to audio and acoustics. The role of such a network is to produce a transition between two systems of differing capabilities. In a loudspeaker system, an increased overall bandwidth is achieved by splicing together two or more lower bandwidth transducer responses. An individual woofer, squawker and tweeter can form a full-range system through the use of a crossover network. Let’s look at some other systems that require similar transitions between their individual components. Several photographs… View this post

    Micing an upright piano is definitely one of the more difficult tasks required of a sound tech/engineer.  Over the years I’ve tried numerous different techniques trying to get that “big, warm” piano sound. On most of these occasions, it was in a live rock/pop situation, where the only choice is to get the mics as close to the piano as possible to keep stage bleed to a minimum. But recently I was asked to do front of house for a… View this post
