    live sound
    Karl Winkler 08/29/11 04:07 PM,
    This list of “effective habits” is distilled down from a much larger list as being the most important – based on my experience these 15 or so years in the business. How these relate to you will depend of course on exactly what kind of work you are doing, but in general, they apply across the board, so to speak. You probably have your own list but because you are reading this article, it points to the fact that you’re… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   This week I had the privilege of interviewing Brent Milligan for my VIP members. He’s a professional producer/musician here in Nashville. Over the course of 45 minutes, Brent said so many things that I thought were just fantastic. I told him we could do a separate interview on EACH of those topics, there was so much good information. Towards the end of the interview, I asked Brent if he had any… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The graphic below represents the dilemma of the recording studio business. It’s the legendary Electric Lady Studio’s rate card from 1994 and it’s evidence why so many legendary studios have been turned into condos. If you take notice, a lock-out rate (meaning the studio is purchased for the entire day) ranges from $2,500 to $2,800 a day. Sixteen years later, major studio rates are the same, even less if you get a… View this post

    church sound
    Mike Sessler 08/18/11 11:05 AM, 0 Comments
    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Any type of live production is fraught with peril. There are a ton of tasks that need to be accomplished in the right order, at the right time, for the service or production to run smoothly. Add in the pressures and complications of most church systems (often less that ideal) and working with non-professional volunteers (we love them, but it’s not what they do for a living), and it’s easy to forget a… View this post

    When I walk into a performing arts center where the console is located up in the production booth, a million miles away from the stage and without even a hint of direct coverage from the main loudspeakers, I wonder how anyone can mix in this setting.  Yes, I know mixing theatre is different than mixing a band, and monitor loudspeakers at the mix position help. But I’ve always found it difficult to mix in these types of situations. I was… View this post
