    This month we look at line source column loudspeakers, which are also sometimes called “architectural” loudspeakers, presumably because their slim-profile design allows them to blend well into their surroundings. Despite their rather scant appearance, however, many modern column loudspeakers deliver exceptional full-range performance, and this can be furthered by companion LF boxes and subwoofers. There are two primary types of column loudspeakers – those that offer the ability to “digitally steer” the vertical beamwidth and those that don’t. But it’s… View this post

    Among lesser-known amplifier classes – yet viable and employed in pro audio applications - are Class-G and Class-H topologies. Unlike some of the “hybrid” designs touted as “unique” topologies by some in the amplifier development community, these two designs are fairly distinct. That said, there is some disagreement among the amplifier “experts” on the exact definitions of Class-G and Class-H. For purposes of general discussion, when more than one voltage rail is employed, or a pair of rails is used… View this post

    This article is provided by the ProAudioFiles.   Before getting into the meaning of arrangement, I want to take a moment to stress the importance of arrangement. Arrangement ultimately bridges the gap between the composition and the mix. Give that a moment to resonate, and I will clarify. Arrangement refers to the organization of any aspect of a song. A song can be organized in many different ways and still be essentially the same song. The arrangement is simply the… View this post

    Bordering only Saudi Arabia to the south, Qatar is a peninsula country surrounded by the waters of the Persian Gulf. The harsh desert terrain where the heat can reach as much as 120 degrees Fahrenheit can take a steep toll on all who venture outside unprepared. But as the saying, “the show must go on” implies, TV and film work doesn’t wait for ‘better days.’ Such is the business of Birmingham, UK –based location sound mixer Baldev Rayat and his… View this post

    Presented in the Italian cave Grotte di Castellana, Hell in the Cave depicts anguished residents of the tragic underworld in Dante’s epic poem Inferno. Rather than using a single stage, the daring creators of the show take the unorthodox approach to bring the audience through scenes in separate grottoes. While visitors enjoy an immersive dramatic experience, the equipment supporting the presentation must endure a hostile environment through a long subterranean performance season. The sound designer chose a reinforcement system of… View this post
