    Whenever I’m at the local Guitar Hut, I like to listen to the people who come in and talk with the pro audio sales guy about gear. These conversations are often filled with nebulous audiophilic adjectives like “warm”, “sweet” and “punchy”. The sales guy has little motivation to be a source of truthful or accurate information. He just wants to make a sale. Meanwhile many of his customers already have their minds made up as to what piece of gear… View this post

    As audio professionals, we’re usually not concerned with how the content of podcasts and webcasts is delivered. Our focus is getting quality audio to the recorder or computer and making things sound their best. I categorize casting and streaming into two basic groups: speech gigs and musical performances. Typically, the web conferences and corporate podcasts that I work consist mainly of speech with some pre-recorded music thrown in. Music performances are a bit more complex and I’ll address how to… View this post

    Opened at the end of last year, Kitchen Sink Recording Studio is the product of audio engineers Jono Manson and Tim Schmoyer’s pooled talent and resources. In a brand new location in downtown Santa Fe, the ‘new’ place is actually an old studio, where they were lucky enough to keep and renovate some of the equipment left behind by previous owners. Adding an Audient ASP8024 with Dual Layer Control (DLC) into the mix has enabled them to benefit from the… View this post

    Radial Engineering announces the mPress and Exo-Pod press distribution system in now shipping. The mPress is a new press audio distribution system that offers near unlimited signal expansion without degradation or noise. According to Radial’s senior engineer Dan Fraser: “The traditional press box has always been presented as a suitcase with a mic input and a host of mic outputs. In the past, transformers performed the task of splitting the signal and providing isolation against hum and buzz caused by… View this post

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we got to thinking that it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of… View this post

    Soulful, multi-talented vocalist and performer Leona Lewis has been on a 14-date tour of the UK with a Solid State Logic L500 console and K-array Slim Array technology, chosen by front of house engineer Dave Wooster. Lewis’ I Am show provides Wooster with around 65 inputs from the stage. “It’s a full-on set-up,” he says. “The drummer alone has two mics on the bass drum, three snares - each with at least two mics on, four toms, all the cymbals,… View this post

    This article is provided by PreSonus.   In May 2014, the VU meter celebrated its 75th birthday. It has served the industry well, and when properly interpreted, it’s still useful. However, today’s digital recording processes have caused us to take a hard look at the usefulness and inadequacy of both the traditional VU meter and its modern replacement, the LED level meter, as tools for signal-level management. The classic VU meter, though relatively rare today (primarily because of cost), has… View this post

    What Is It? A high pass filter, or HPF, is exactly as it sounds.  It is a filter we can use on our soundboards that ONLY allows the higher frequencies pass. It is sometimes referred to as a Low Cut filter for a similar reason. It is also the most overlooked tool in the sound engineer’s arsenal. Where It’s Found. Some soundboards only have a High Pass Switch which is fixed at a certain frequency, often 80Hz or 100Hz.  This… View this post
