    In order to select a microphone for a specific application, and to apply it properly, it’s first necessary to know the important characteristics of the sound source(s) and of the sound system. Once these are defined, a look at the five areas of microphone specifications will lead to an appropriate match. Finally, proper use of the microphone, by correct placement and operation, will insure best performance. Following are recommendations for some of the most common meeting facility sound applications.

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s an interesting development that could signal a major advance in stage and concert lighting - audio powered LEDs. Yes, researchers at Hirose-Tanikawa Group at the University of Tokyo have developed an LED that can actually be powered by nothing but audio. An experimental setup of the new system uses an off-the-shelf speaker to deliver an ultrasonic sound wave which is converted into power by a circuit board covered in microphones. The… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Both mixing engineers and mastering engineers are tied at the hip, though many don’t realize it. Yes, it’s true that many mastering engineers are dependent upon a mixer’s business to keep the doors open, but that’s been changing, since many times there’s a shoot-out between mastering engineers to see who gets the gig. Usually, the one who can provide the loudest master wins (there’s that loudness war again). But that’s not the… View this post

    Where’s the sound guy? I’ve heard this question so many times, usually regarding the sound operator who was supposed to be at the console for rehearsal or the service, but has gone missing. Sometimes it comes up when there’s a problem with the sound system or questions about how to operate it. But I want to look at this question from a different angle and ask this question to church leadership in your church. First let’s broaden the scope to… View this post

    The principal venue of Aotea Centre in New Zealand, the ASB Theatre has installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system as part of its recent renovation. By subtly augmenting the theatre’s reverberant characteristics, Constellation creates an immersive acoustic atmosphere and enhances the audience’s sense of envelopment. The improvement was noted by New Zealand Herald music critic Brian Rudman: “From the opening rumbles of the orchestra it was obvious that something magical had happened during the interior upgrading. Instead of the… View this post

    As production technology grows more sophisticated, the audio crew members at Coast Hills Community Church are finding themselves increasingly responsible for streaming productions live to the Internet or recording them to DVD. In order to deliver high-quality audio in these scenarios, the church relies on DPA Microphones’ d:fine headset microphones and several DPA 4098H hanging supercardioid microphones. Designed to function much like a traditional performing arts center, Coast Hills Community Church is housed in a nearly square building with seating… View this post
