    “Audio System Engineer”—has a nice ring to it, eh? Very official sounding. Not so very long ago there was a controversy about this title. I believe the crux of the argument revolved around the use of the label “engineer” when there was no college degree earned. But like most things, this too did pass. What’s in a name anyway? The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has accepted me as member since 1978, and if it works for them, it works for… View this post

    Status Quo boasts 100 single releases, 60 UK chart hits including 22 in the top ten, the opening act for ‘Live Aid’ in 1985 and recipients of multiple industry awards. Perhaps less well-known but just as significant is their long commitment to charities including The Prince’s Trust, the British Heart Foundation and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy. In early 2016 the band announced their final electric tour, the appropriately-named ‘Last Night Of The Electrics’, for which London-based Capital Sound deployed its Outline… View this post

    Since he first appeared at the Marshland Festival in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Frank Foster has stuck with Deep South Productions (DSP) for all his touring technology, including the J-Series from d&b audiotechnik which was added about three years ago. “It’s where my business relationship with DSP’s owner Marvin Simon was cemented,” says Foster. “I’m into every aspect of my show, especially the sound, and I appreciate the difference I get from DSP, especially since Marvin bought that new German audio… View this post

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this post
