    Many things around us are getting better. Computers are faster, televisions have more resolution, and dishwashers are quieter and more powerful than ever. But with all of our digital wiz-bang processors, technology has been unable to eradicate “bad sound.” Why is this so? This short piece is an attempt to shed some light on three possible causes, two of which have been completely unaffected by the technological revolution. The goal of most sound reinforcement systems is to deliver high quality… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This article, #InstallationFail, has been inspired by the many, many instances of bad installation practices I’ve seen throughout the years. I’ve been taking pictures and cataloging these for quite some time, and I figured it’s time to share them with the world. Now, I should point out I’m not publishing these to make anyone feel bad. Though some of you should feel bad for some of these installations. But that’s not the point.… View this post

    One of my favorite sayings: “Audio is an art that everyone thinks is a science,  and audio is a science that everyone thinks is an art.” There’s no doubt that delivering an accurate (not to mention good-sounding) mix without missed cues is the right blend of both art and science. Knowing the science helps in setting up the mix and making sure that everything is routed properly and the right things plugged in to the right parts of the system.… View this post
