    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   A block diagram of a sound system is a simplified drawing of the system components and their connections. It shows the signal flow from inputs to outputs (generally from left to right). You could call it a “road map” of your sound system. If you are designing a sound system from scratch, a block diagram is the starting point. You can use it to generate a list of necessary components. Also, with… View this post

    Auralex Acoustics is now shipping its new ProPAD monitor isolation pad, the latest product in the ISO (Instant Sound Optimizer) line. The ProPAD is a premium-performance variant of the company’s MoPAD, offering increased durability and structural integrity, and providing superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by studio monitors. The ProPAD prevents this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture, which would greatly color the monitor sound and degrade their imaging. The ProPAD is sold in stereo… View this post

Correspondingly, when Memphis-based designer/integrator Elite Multimedia set out to provide a highly flexible system to meet the needs of Living Hope’s growing congregation, they chose a Lake LM 26 signal processor based on the wide range of control it offered over equalization, limiting and delay for the mains. “There’s a… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I was asked by a guitar player recently why his tone wasn’t what he wanted, and the first thing that got my attention was the maze of stomp boxes he was using. Although that wasn’t the only problem with his rig, it was a good place to start, since everything was connected more or less haphazardly.
