    Over the last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to use some of the best sound systems currently available from many of the leading manufacturers, and one of the things that struck me is how far we’ve come in terms of delivering the bottom end of the mix. Subwoofer technology and placement techniques have developed to the point where we have a lot more control over how this important band of frequencies is deployed. So I thought it would be… View this post

    Election cycles are getting longer and longer, and more campaigns are on the road for extended periods of time while cable and Internet news outlets hunger for content to fill their 24-hour news formats. This has resulted in an increased demand to sound companies and AV rental houses for providing press conference feeds. If you don’t have at least one press mult in inventory and available, you may be missing out on increased revenue opportunities. A Menu For Feeding The… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Simply, good monitors are very important. Video productions monitor using screens. Audio productions monitor using loudspeakers that are driven by amplifiers. Every decision made in a musical production (not only regarding sounds but also arrangements and even performances) is based on what everyone is hearing. For example, if you’re recording a bass sound and the monitors sound thin, you may mistakenly believe that the bass sound itself is thin and compensate by adding… View this post

    In the grand scheme of things, audio engineering is a pretty mysterious field, at least for most people. When asked what I do for a living, “I’m an audio engineer” is often met with puzzlement, so I quickly amend, “You know, I’m a sound person. I run sound for concerts and events.” For many folks, this is when the light comes on – one woman said, “Oh, you’re the guy, like at my church, in the back who turns all… View this post

    Many moons ago, I was approached by a very talented local musician with a common request. “Can you do a project for me? I don’t really have any money, but…” Just fill in that last part with whatever excuse, incentive or promise you feel like pulling from your own experiences. Since these requests arrived so frequently, I developed one of my core philosophies about business. It didn’t matter if it concerned studio projects, live shows or installations; the concept is… View this post

    When measuring loudspeaker systems, the question of phase response often arises. I thought it might be informative to review setting the receive delay within a measurement system so that the displayed phase response is the “correct” one. I have the word correct in quotes above because for a given magnitude response there are an infinite number of equally valid phase responses. This is due in part to what is called propagation delay. This is simply the time of flight of… View this post

    Rhythm section tracking is the most important recording session in the production cycle of a record. The recording engineer captures the feel and sound of the musicians as they interpret the song and support the artist’s performance. The rhythm track’s sound is a component of the production style and identifies the record’s musical genre. I liken the track to the foundation of a house: you can’t build very high on a weak base! Subsequent overdubbed sweetening is just “window dressing”… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Most every time I go to a concert I come with the same feeling - why did it sound so bad? I’ve posted the following a few years ago, but it’s still holds true things never seems to get much better. Concert sound reinforcement equipment is better than ever, yet we’re frequently burdened with a mess of auditory goo that just sucks the enjoyment from a live event. Unfortunately this happens much… View this post

    “Getting ahead without being a jerk” is actually what our young friend said he wanted to discuss. I will use the pseudonym “Oz Man” for him due to the volatile nature of his dilemma! Notice that he is so distraught that he offers no salutation! At the age of 17, I entered my journey of wanting to be a sound professional. At age 27… … that makes it a decade later, right? … I have gone to “rock and roll… View this post
