    As the industry increasingly moves in a digital direction depending more on touch screens than faders and on menus and layers instead of every function being at one’s fingertips, mix engineers like Rob Mailman—who need to move fast and are accustomed to the dedicated control of analog—are searching for digital consoles that offer ease-of-navigation as well as outstanding sound quality. Like Mailman, who has now officially made the move to a DiGiCo SD5, those engineers are increasingly turning to DiGiCo… View this post

    While they’ve become one of the most popular and recognized multipin connectors in pro audio, the back-story of how MASS connectors came to have such impact shouldn’t be overlooked. Interestingly, MASS connectors weren’t even intended for audio applications; rather, they were originally developed for use in oil exploration. Oil company engineers connected seismographs with miles of cable in areas suspected of containing oil deposits. Explosive charges were then buried along the lines and detonated. The resulting echo “signatures” were captured… View this post

    Andy Torri has only had two main jobs since a chance with Todd Park Mohr, frontman for Big Head Todd & the Monsters, in the late 1980s – FOH engineer for Big Head Todd & the Monsters and studio engineer at KBCO in Boulder, Colorado. The first gig, from which he took only a short reprieve between 2005 and 2012, took him from guitar-tuning-tee-shirt-sales-plus-mixing-duties in the smoky haze of local bars to his current position of respected FOH engineer at… View this post
