    The conversion of Britz Castle in Berlin-Neukölln, Germany, into a new cultural centre, was recently completed, and includes a 300-capacity concert and theatre hall, installed with Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system. The spec was for a future-proof digital system that could easily be used by sound engineers of guest productions. It also needed to be portable to service not just the hall but other areas in the venue, and flexible and simple to configure, with the option to… View this post

    It’s always been amusing to watch the band set up. The guitarist brings his amp, a few pedals, and maybe a couple of guitars. The bass player brings his instrument, and often his own amp. The drummer uses the church’s drum kit, but he brings his own sticks and takes the time to tune and position the drums to his liking. But the vocalist just uses whatever mic is handed to them. My experience has been that the choice of… View this post

  • line arrays
    PSW Staff 04/27/12 04:44 PM,
    It seemed just a short time ago that the line array market was headed in one direction: down. As in, virtually every new line array was smaller and lighter that its respective predecessor. Yet recent events have shown that the large-format genre (which we loosely identify as models with 12-inch and larger woofers) still has plenty of life left. As a matter of fact, within just the past year or so, at least five new large-format series have hit the… View this post
