    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Maybe no one has so profoundly summed up the essence of building brand loyalty than Simon Sinek in his Ted Talk, “Start with Why”. If you haven’t watched it before, I recommend it highly. There are many great Ted Talks, but this is one that has stuck with me ever since I saw it. But I digress… Simon notes people don’t buy what you do or how you do it, but they… View this post

    How many freelance stagehands does it take to plug in a cable? It sounds like the setup line of a joke, but it’s actually the subject of a recent discussion with a colleague. At a gig a couple of weeks ago, he’d asked a freelance stagehand to plug in a cable at the back of a rack. It was dark, particularly in the recesses of the rack, and the stagehand couldn’t see the channel numbers (let alone the jacks). Without… View this post

      Here’s a handy quiz for checking your knowledge about audio power. Rather than submit you to the typical “right or wrong” questions with exact numerical answers, I’ve elected to provide a different means of self-evaluation. I can tell you up front that the answer to every question is “It depends!” But what’s really being asked is “WHAT does it depend on?” At first glance it may seem that the question is not even related to audio. Don’t be fooled.… View this post

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   There’s a moment early in the movie “Men In Black” – after a big green alien has put up ‘all his hands and flippers’ (and was then blasted to goo) – where an older, tired-out Agent D says to Agent K “They’re beautiful, aren’t they?” K replies “What?” And D says “The stars. We never just – look anymore.” I’m in the sound business, so I don’t have to worry about blasting creatures into goo… View this post

  • church sound installation
    Curt Taipale 01/21/16 07:34 AM,
    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   Audio consultants often find themselves working with people in churches who seem eternally bent on saving money at any cost. This is the kind of church that will call with the seemingly innocent request to have the consultant design a new sound system for them. At some point in the conversation they’ll add that they want to do the installation themselves. That approach can be a mixed blessing both for the consultant… View this post

    consoles
    Craig Leerman 01/20/16 07:17 AM,
    Digital consoles typically aren’t limited in terms of interconnect to what’s physically included within the control surface, expandable with a variety of stage boxes that provide a wealth of inputs and outputs as well as routing and more in both the digital and analog realms. Many of these boxes also carry the console’s “mix engine” and remote controllable microphone preamps, along with facilitating networking with other system components and handy for all sorts of outboard recording and playback, broadcast feeds,… View this post

    The votes have been tallied and the results are in for the Seventh Annual ProSoundWeb Readers Choice Product Awards. The participation of both manufacturers as well as our audience proved exceptional, with a record of more than 27,000 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,… View this post

    drum miking
    Daniel Keller 01/18/16 05:04 PM,
    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   Ask 10 recording engineers about recording drums and you’re likely to get more than 20 opinions. Few instruments combine subtle nuance and brute force the way a good drummer can, and capturing that sound has been the subject of hundreds of articles and thousands of conversations. So many different aspects affect the sound of a drum mix, starting with the player. Different skins, different shells, the type of sticks, the kick-drum beater all influence the… View this post

    When first starting down the audio path, I eagerly read every scrap of information I could get my hands on about how the “pros” approached their craft. What kind of gear were they using? What techniques? What was the “secret sauce”? In the late 1980s, I was much more interested in recording and had not yet seen the light about live sound reinforcement. And in those days, the Lord-Alge brothers were a big deal in the recording world. While Home… View this post

    muse on tour
    Greg DeTogne 01/15/16 01:14 PM,
    Among the pantheon of arena rock legends, Muse just may be having a truly transcendent moment with its Drones World Tour, which kicked off in late November in Mexico City prior to settling in for the holidays with a pair of sold-out shows at the Staples Center in LA. With early 2016 dates in Las Vegas, San Diego, Chicago, Montreal, and well beyond, the English rockers are bringing their brand of aural and visual spectacle to fans in the round… View this post
