    Dear Old Soundman: I’m a 23-year-old law student at Yale, and I discovered this summer that I really hate the practice of law. I mean I really hate it. Here is what you should do. Tell you parents to send me your tuition money while you go “find yourself.” How’s that sound? So much that the $500/day I’m earning isn’t worth it to me. Or is it? Do you have any idea how few sound mixers make $500 a day?… View this post

    When heavy metal band, Stryper was scheduled to play at The Liberty in Roswell, New Mexico, recently, John Pennell, owner of Total Productions, turned to FBT to supply a complete front of house rig utilizing Mitus 206 line arrays and Mitus 218A subs. The Liberty is a popular venue with bands making their way from Texas to Albuquerque on their tours, but it’s also a rental space for private events. With this in mind, Pennell has always had to be… View this post

    Over Michelle Sabolchick Pettinato’s 25 years as a front of house engineer, she’s worked with a wide variety of artists, among them: pop icons Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani, 90s rock outfits Collective Soul and Goo Goo Dolls, and currently, she’s on tour with one of her favorite bands from her teenage years, Styx. Sabolchick recalls working with a colleague, Jeff Heintz – who’s since served as a co-production manager and keyboard tech for Styx – on Stefani’s first solo… View this post

    Sia set numerous attendance records on her Nostalgic for the Present Tour, which crisscrossed North America during the fall of 2016 in promotion of her latest album, This Is Acting. The artist is continually redefining her performance art and relied heavily on a full complement of Adamson E-Series loudspeakers to do so on her most recent run. Front of engineer Jon Lemon was given direct instructions from the artist to “make it sound like the record.” He subsequently received the… View this post

    Change is the only constant. (“Well, it used to be.” “Oh, what happened?” “It changed.”) Several years ago, I got a call to mix front of house for Uriah Heep on a mini-tour of the U.S. I hadn’t mixed a headliner rock band in a long time. Years back, fate took me down the path of product design and manufacturing, and later, I became a specialist in sound system alignment (a.k.a. “room tuning”) for major events and installations. So I’ve… View this post

    Technology in professional audio (and technology in general) has changed so much and so quickly that it’s become difficult to get up to speed and stay up to date. The learning curve for some aspects of what we do is quite steep and appears to be accelerating. Analog consoles are challenging enough, but the number-crunching digital beasts are even more complex. We hardly used wireless 20 years ago, now it’s everywhere. Outboard effects have become plugins, and what were once… View this post
