    How fast do sound signals travel through the various parts of the sound system? Do sound signals travel faster in analog snake cables or fiber optic cables? Also, what about transmission through the air with wireless mics? And where do the true and relevant sources of time lag exist in a audio system? What I find really interesting is that sound signal travels at differing speeds depending on whether it’s in the form of electricity, or sound waves in air,… View this post

    Today’s reality TV shows focus on everything from interior and clothing design to marksmanship and even kitchen warfare. None of them, however, show brute athleticism quite like FX Network’s The Ultimate Fighter. The show features up and coming MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters in Las Vegas and follows them as they train and compete against each other for a contract with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). Capturing audio for the show is anything but routine. With demanding production schedules and… View this post

  • loudspeaker damping
    Chuck McGregor 08/27/12 02:48 PM,
    The main effect of damping in a loudspeaker is to reduce the SPL produced by the loudspeaker’s diaphragm moving because of its own inertia after the signal stops. The frequency of the sound it produces with this movement will be at the resonant frequency of the moving system. A common term for this is “overhang”. In severe cases this can translate into “one note bass”. Types Of Loudspeaker Damping There are two types of loudspeaker damping: mechanical and electrical. The… View this post

    I mentioned in my previous article (What, Me Worry?) that I’ve been troubled by the lack of fundamental audio and acoustics knowledge often displayed in our industry. And because of this, there are misconceptions that are difficult to stamp out. So in an effort to help, I’ve whittled down a concentrated list of the top technical concepts I think everyone in our business should have under their collective thumbs. Of course there are many more important ideas and concepts that… View this post
