    EDITOR’S NOTE: This fine article was featured in the March 2004 issue of Live Sound International. We reprint it here in celebration of our 25th anniversary. How many sound systems are in use? Many millions, for sure, and they’re found in all types of venues and for all kinds of programs. So one would think we’d know exactly how to do it by now. But there seems to be plenty of examples to prove that we don’t. Why should this… View this post

    GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jake Sinclair recently produced new records for Sia, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy, while simultaneously crafting his side project, Alohaha. Sinclair’s list of credits includes such artists as Taylor Swift, P!nk, Train, and 5 Seconds of Summer. He runs his studio off a laptop in a room filled with instruments, a few preamps, and his prized Manley ELOP+ stereo electro-optical tube compressor/limiter and not much else. The ELOP+ is a completely re-engineered version of Manley’s coveted early 1990s-vintage… View this post

What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of May 2016. Note… View this post

    Every time a new audio innovation arises, it’s met by a certain amount of resistance. This is ironic and puzzling to me, seeing as our field is driven almost entirely by technology. What motivates this response? Perhaps fear that technology will replace us. Are system techs quaking in their boots, fearful of being replaced by a system processor with auto-EQ abilities?

    Kansas City Kansas Community College has been a proud owner of an Audient ASP8024 for over 6 years, a decision that professor of Audio Recording & Music Technology, Dr. Ian Corbett still stands by, having seen hundreds of students hone their audio engineering skills on the large format analog mixing console. The notion to add an iD22 to his teaching arsenal this year was born out of that trust in Audient. Dr. Corbett uses his new audio interface in his… View this post
