    There are many different ways of checking PA systems. Some of us play music and walk around the venue, while others use sweeps or pink noise and deploy on a measurement program. Many do a combination of both. Regardless, at some point in the process, we usually grab a microphone and listen to the PA with our own voice. Witnessing hundreds (thousands?) of these voice checks over the years has led me to compile the following “types.” Which one do… View this post

    Craig Leerman 02/09/16 07:25 AM,
    My company has worked countless smaller to mid-sized festivals and variety shows over the years, and through trial and error we’ve discovered several approaches and problem-solvers that make life a little easier when it comes to working with stage monitoring. As always, the first step to success is advancing the gig. We never take the promoter’s word that the riders we’ve received are current, so we call each artist’s representative to make sure we’ve got the latest monitoring requirements. The… View this post

For the recent Passion 2016, however, organizers vowed to bring an identical experience to all attendees, ambitiously staging simultaneous three-day events at three locations, with real-time audio, video, and control data streaming and synchronized between the locations, and with a… View this post

    The ancient Roman amphitheatre in Verona was the magnificent setting for Intimissimi on Ice, an evening of music and dance on a vast iced stage, all supported by ArrayProcessing from d&b audiotechnik. Designed in the classical amphitheatre style, the two thousand year old stone structure is elliptical in shape, with the outer walls standing about seventeen meters in height. The audience was seated in the remaining half of the arena floor and on seating built into the steeply tiered bleachers… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Most every time I go to a concert I come with the same feeling - why did it sound so bad? I’ve posted the following a few years ago, but it’s still holds true things never seems to get much better. Concert sound reinforcement equipment is better than ever, yet we’re frequently burdened with a mess of auditory goo that just sucks the enjoyment from a live event. Unfortunately this happens much… View this post

    Allen & Heath’s new dLive mixing system appeared at London’s O2 arena recently, with King Charles supporting Mumford & Sons on their UK tour. King Charles front of house engineer Jon Lewis employed a dLive S3000 console with an A&H DM64 MixRack for front of house, with an Allen & Heath GLD Chrome mixer handling monitor duties. Powerful beyond its diminutive size, the 20 fader, 12-inch touch-screen equipped S3000 allows for up to 120 fader strips and fast workflow. With… View this post
