    British electronic dance act Underworld has chosen a Solid State Logic L500 as performance tool for its live tours. The console joins founder-member Rick Smith on stage as a fast, versatile, creative instrument, allowing him to combine old-school dub mixing techniques with the best in performance technology. It has been 20 years since the original release of Underworld’s album dubnobasswithmyheadman, and the anniversary was marked with a remastered release, accompanied by a tour that showcased the band’s live work.

    Central Georgia is known for several things, including great food, classic southern culture, and a disproportionate number of churches. One church that’s stood as a beacon for many years is Christ Chapel, located on the north side of Macon. Currently serving as the audio director at the church, Jon Beachy and his family found everything they were searching for after relocating to Macon about 15 years ago. “We’d picked out a few churches to visit, and Christ Chapel was the… View this post

    It’s early days for the Hennepin Technical College (HTC) Audio Production students, but initial reports suggest that they are getting on a treat with the recently installed Audient ASP4816 console. “Students have already noted that the simplicity in design and operation is easier to wrap their heads around than virtual controllers and ‘layers’ that may be found on some of the digital equipment in other rooms,” says Matt Holmes of the Audio Production Faculty. This is thanks in no small… View this post

    The scale and complexity of production at larger churches in the U.S. has grown exponentially over the past two decades. At the higher end of the scale, both the technology and expertise of the tech team is strikingly similar to that of arena-level concert tours. Case in point is Community Bible Church (CBC) in San Antonio, the seventh largest church in the U.S. with more than 25,000 members attending services campus-wide each weekend. Currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, the interdenominational,… View this post

    Since its U.S. launch at InfoComm, the Yamaha Rivage PM10 Digital Audio Console has captured quite a bit of attention. The national demos have been a driving force since early September around the country when the ‘shakedown’ began as the Company fine tunes the software and prepares for the release. This is a standard part of the Yamaha quality assurance policy to confirm the absolute reliability the Company is known for. The response to the console’s sound quality, layout, and… View this post

    Waves Audio is now shipping Sub Align, a tool that provides an original solution to a problem that Live front of house engineers repeatedly encounter, and for which, until now, there was no all-embracing solution: aligning sub and top speakers in unaligned and inaccessible full-range PA systems. The problem: The physical position and distance between tops and subs are critical for the overall punch and clarity of a PA system. However, most performers and engineers around the world play small… View this post

    Husson University’s New England School of Communications (NESCom) in Bangor, Maine, has installed a Calrec Audio Summa audio console to give its video production and audio engineering students hands-on experience on an industry-standard desk. The Summa gives students a competitive edge when they graduate — a benefit more universities are starting to recognize. “A huge advantage of our program is that students train on the same equipment they will be using to earn a living,” said NESCom executive director Rodney… View this post
