The Alamo Dome joins other notable sports facilities where the unit has been used or are installed including Notre Dame,… View this post

    As part of their efforts to keep Sara Bareilles performing at her peak on the road, Trey Smith and Kevin Twist share the responsibilities of many. With Smith standing-in at front of house and fulfilling all the duties of tour manager too, Twist takes a place each night at the helm of monitors, in addition helping to manage myriad other production details. Speaking from Nashville while on hiatus after wrapping up a successful touring season late last December, Smith concedes… View this post

    Royer Labs has introduced the Sling-Shock microphone shock mount, designed to provide excellent isolation between a microphone and mic stand from a maintenance-free design. Sling-Shock offers a unique suspension system that reduces induced distortion by eliminating unwanted vibration and random low-frequency disturbances commonly characterized as “rumble.” Sling-Shock is designed to work indefinitely with no loss of performance or function, requiring nothing more than minimal adjustment. It utilizes a two-part mechanism consisting of non-resonant nylon cord and damped tensioning springs that… View this post

It’s important to be familiar with the concept of numerical optimization (most simply, the determination of input values to obtain a function’s maximum or… View this post

    A new version of the AKG WMS470 wireless system with revised operating frequencies for the European market, called the WMS470 Band 10, operates on frequencies between 823 and 832 MHz known as the “duplex gap.” This frequency range lies between the areas that will be used for upcoming high-speed Internet service for mobile devices, and will enable future proof, interference-free operation. “In many European countries the frequency range between 823 and 832 MHz will be exclusively reserved for wireless microphones… View this post
