    Dear Old Soundman— Yes, SPA1! Were your parents named SPA.09? I’ve enjoyed reading your comments for some time now. See, even though you have named yourself after a decadent outdoor love tub, you’re okay! I wonder if you might give us your insight regarding musicians who use earplugs (sometimes very sophisticated earplugs,) but then require ridiculous monitor levels on stage. There was a lack of love in these people’s lives when they were children. I run into more problems with… View this post

      As I was preparing for an OptEQ workshop, a few things crystallized for me, the most fundamental being “what is equalization?” If you ask 10 audio practitioners this simple question, you’re likely to get 10 different answers. In the most literal sense, equalization means to “make equal.” But make what equal? Here are some thoughts for consideration. Literal Definition In the strictest use of the term, equalization applies to the correction of minimum phase aberrations in the transfer function… View this post

    Producer/engineer Jerry Finn amassed an enormous collection of amplifiers, guitar pedals, and recording gear before his untimely death at 39 in 2008. That collection is available for sale now, through an online sale here. During his influential Punk Rock career, Finn worked with such bands as Green Day, blink-182, AFI, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, Morrissey, MxPx, and Rancid. In a 2003 interview, Finn referred to his work with Green Day on 1994’s “Dookie” as “ Before them, I… View this post

    A poll here at ProSoundWeb a while back asked, “The one thing I’d like to see the return of, or at least more of, in sound reinforcement is…” Response choices included tube electronics, rotary faders, loud/distorted audio, wired-only microphones, and wedges only (no IEM). Oh, and the winner: None of the Above, which garnered almost 50 percent of the vote. Number two was tube electronics getting more than 20 percent, with number three being wired-only mics at about 15 percent.… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This goes back to 2014, however the forms and information included are still quite relevant. Now that I’m traveling to even more churches than ever, I’ve seen some very creative console layouts. And pretty much everyone looks at me funny when I ask them for an input sheet. I used input sheets every weekend for over eight years—even though most weeks we could have gotten away without one. But I’m a… 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
