    Lynx Studio Technology has introduced the Aurora(n) line of A/D and D/A converters, with the initial 14 models offering up to 32 channels and connectivity options that include Thunderbolt, USB, Dante and ProTools | HD all in a single rack space. The Aurora(n) has an I/O platform that can be configured using different modules. The first three of these modules include a pre-amp, an analog summing and a digital (AES3+ADAT) module to be released in 2017. As with current Lynx… View this post

    Almost every SynAudCon seminar has attendees from other technical fields that need to learn about sound systems and audio. These fields include networking, telephony, lighting, electrical and others. Many tell us that audio is the most confusing thing they have encountered in their technical careers – and it is no wonder. Consider the input types that may exist on a mixing console. I found all of these on units sitting around the shop (shown in the photo below). There are… View this post

    The votes have been tallied and the results are in for the Eighth Annual ProSoundWeb Readers Choice Product Awards. The participation of both manufacturers as well as our audience proved exceptional, with more than 25,000 ballots cast. The races in each category were close and competitive, owing to the overall strength of every product entered combined with the distinct yet varied preferences of the pro audio industry’s largest online community. In fact, many races were so tight, separated by just… View this post

    On the nights of February 16 and 17, 1971, the first commercial quad recording sessions ever were held In San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. This monumental edifice to God’s glory and Episcopalian financial acumen is blessed with a fine pipe organ, a 90-foot ceiling, and a 7-second reverberation time. The latter, in particular, put some stringent limitations on both the recording technique and musical style involved. The session was for side 2 of Paul Beaver and Bernard Krause’s new Warner Bros.… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

    This year’s NAMM Show offers musicians and engineers an opportunity to meet Arthur – Schertler’s new modular mixer, which has its official North American premiere in Anaheim. Designed for both live and studio use, Arthur is created from a choice of different Class-A input and output modules - mic input, mic input ultra low noise and mic input x4 units, yellow instrument input unit, stereo input unit, L/R master, aux master and external power-in units. These can be specified and… View this post

    Somewhere in its early years, the coin operated record player acquired the name “jukebox.” There are several theories about the origin. The most accepted is that the word “juke” is a corruption of the word “jook,” an African American slang term for dancing. The source of the music for this dancing would have been called a “jookbox.” A second version is that “jook” meant “sex” which may have made sense since brothels were some of the first establishments to install… View this post

    Technology in professional audio (and technology in general) has changed so much and so quickly that it’s become difficult to get up to speed and stay up to date. The learning curve for some aspects of what we do is quite steep and appears to be accelerating. Analog consoles are challenging enough, but the number-crunching digital beasts are even more complex. We hardly used wireless 20 years ago, now it’s everywhere. Outboard effects have become plugins, and what were once… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   I think everyone can agree that digital audio is here to stay.  Even those who frowned upon digital in its earlier days have now mostly accepted its reality and have come to welcome its benefits.  Digital has quickly become the driving force behind most of the latest advancements in the field of audio engineering today. It has changed the workflows, the budgets and the music itself.  As a younger engineer I am very much a… View this post
