    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A group, sometimes called a subgroup, is basically another mix bus that you can send the output of channel faders to. You could say that the Main Left and Right is a group—a stereo group typically. The signal comes into the input channels, the gain is set, it’s EQ’d and finally the output goes through the fader to a group; either the L&R main output—sometimes there’s a Mono option also—or you may have… View this post

    Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has installed a Midas PRO6 live audio system in a major refit to its main theatre. The desk was selected after a rigorous evaluation of digital consoles. “We strive to be the best for teaching all aspects of theatre to our students,” says RCS technician Gerrie Victor. “We already have some of the best lighting consoles in the world and wanted to get the same standard for our sound system. We want our students to… View this post

    First United Methodist Church of San Diego is the largest Methodist church in southern California and occupies one of the most architecturally-splendid church campuses in the area. Over many decades, First United has struggled with sound reinforcement systems for its multiple venues that somehow always failed to live up to expectations. Recently, Paul Svenson of Sound Casework Inc. (PS Audio Video) reversed the inertia of that sorry history, unifying all five sound systems under a common, easy-to-use, foolproof paradigm centered… View this post

    The early history of the development of wireless microphone systems is a bit murky as to “who did what and when,” but it might be surprising to know that they’ve been around in various forms for more than 60 years. In fact, back in the mid-1940s, publications such as Popular Science showed schematics and kits for making low-power wireless microphones that could transmit to a nearby AM radio. The Shure Vagabond system, which debuted in 1953, most certainly was one… View this post

    microphones
    Bruce Bartlett 03/06/12 03:53 PM,
    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   What microphone is best for recording an orchestra? What’s a good snare mic? Should the mic be a condenser or dynamic, omni or cardioid? You can answer these questions more easily once you know the types of microphones and understand their specs. First, it always pays to get a high-quality microphone. The mic is a source of your recorded signal. If that signal is noisy, distorted, or tonally colored, you’ll be stuck… View this post

    The terms +/-3 dB and -6 dB are frequently (and erroneously) used interchangeably to characterize the frequency response of a loudspeaker system. This has led to understandable confusion among consumers who may believe that a +/-3 dB specification is more rigorous than a -6 dB specification. The purpose of this document is to explain the meaning of both specifications as they are commonly used (or misused) in pro audio today, and to provide a basis for comparing loudspeakers with differing… View this post

    The Detroit Auto Show or, more formally, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), is the crown jewel of car exhibitions in the U.S. This year’s edition featured the debuts of 53 new models, plus a wide range of concept cars and special events. The stakes are highest at the show’s all-important press conferences, so the event producers call in trusted providers like On Stage Audio (OSA), Creative Technologies, Digital Black, and Eighth Day Sound to ensure that everything goes… View this post
