    Staged across the Italian city that bears its name, the Ravenna Festival ranks high among Europe’s most prestigious events. Adding another edge to its character, the 2016 event relied heavily on the use of RAVENNA IP networking for its audio operation. The Ravenna Festival hosts performing arts in venues including the Pala de Andrè indoor sports arena and Dante Alighieri theater – where a Lawo mc²36 mixing console, compact I/O Stagebox and RAVENNA formed the heart of a flexible network.… View this post

Diving In Let’s get our feet wet with a look at the concept of “pooled” DSP. “Pooled” is my term for one of the two main approaches that govern various manufacturers’ allocation of DSP in their desks, the… View this post

    For better or for worse, cinematic representations of roadies tend to fall short of reality, and that seems to be the consensus of critics and actual roadies of Showtime’s comedy-drama Roadies, which debuted earlier this year. However, the show is getting high marks on its efforts for the authenticity of the environment they work in, and a DiGiCo SD9 console played a major role in that achievement. Marking a return to music-themed scripts by creator Cameron Crowe, whose 2000 film… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   Recording the music in your worship services on a two-track recorder, such as a CD recorder, seems like it would be simple. But if your mixes sound terrible, here’s how to do it the right way. Most mixing consoles have a set of connectors labeled “tape out” or something similar. And while you may be tempted to simply plug your CD recorder into that output, there’s probably trouble on the way. Here’s why. Let’s… View this post

    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this post
