    Courtesy of Audio-Technica.   Question: VHF vs UHF vs ISM vs UWB: Which wireless system works best? Answer: The idea that UHF wireless systems are inherently better than VHF systems and that ISM (2.4 GHz) and UWB (6 GHz) systems are better than VHF and UHF systems is widespread. But while each system does offer advantages, one is not automatically better than the others, as each system can be limited by wireless regulations and the physics of wireless signals.

    Excerpted from the excellent “Make Mine Music” by Bruce Swedien, available from musicdispatch.com. It’s my opinion that after all is said and done, psychoacoustics is really why we are interested in recording music in the first place. Psychoacoustics can be defined simply as the psychological study of hearing. The true aim of psychoacoustic research is to find out how our hearing works. In other words, to discover how sounds entering the ear are processed by the ear and the brain… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   There are times when you didn’t learn the right way to mix a vocal or an instrument or a band. That’s OK. You learned. You moved on.  But then there are the lies you tell yourself over and over. You don’t learn. You can’t move on. Your work suffers. WAKE UP!* *Any judgment on my part is because I’ve believed some myself. I don’t live in a glass house…at least not… View this post

    At some point, every freelancer considers the possibility of moving up in the world and buying their own big system. Some do it, some don’t. But everyone has their reasons for the final decision. After years of doing shows as a hired gun, I began to consider the niches in my market and ways to take my little business to the next level. I determined that the big hole in my local market was for a dedicated monitor rig. My… View this post

    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

    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
