    Building on years of success with Soundcraft Vi1 digital mixing console, rock and roll legend Ray Davies used a Soundcraft Vi6 as the front of house console for his recent tour. Davies, co-founder of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members The Kinks, recently embarked on a tour through Canada and the United States, with Los Angeles-based group The 88 serving as Davies’ opening act and backing band. Davies’ performances span a seemingly endless catalog of legendary songs, a few… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   You are a live music remixer.  Think about it, the majority of songs performed during a church service are interpretations of the original.  They are new arrangements.  They are played with more musicians, less musicians, different instruments, no instruments, or in different music keys.  It’s your job to take this new arrangement and make it sound great. I hadn’t really thought about it as remixing until recently. A few days ago,… View this post

    Mikael Johnston got his start in the music industry as a founding member of Mephisto Odyssey in 1993, one of the first American Electronic Dance Music acts to sign to Warner Brothers Records. From there, his charisma and solid musical sense led to a steady stream of writing, production, engineering and remix work with bands such as Jane’s Addiction, Static-X, Soul Coughing, and others. In 2008, Johnston partnered with longtime colleague Dave Dresden to form the writing and production team… View this post

    It’s been nearly 40 years since Bruce Springsteen’s debut Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ, and judging from the 3-hour-plus shows, sold-out arenas, and glowing critical reviews, both rocker and band [minus the late, beloved saxophonist Clarence Clemons and keyboardist Danny Federici] are still regaling in their ‘Glory Days.’ With the Wrecking Ball Tour, in support of their 17th studio album, Springsteen & Co are heading into a two-month U.S. fall stadium tour following a massive world tour that started in… View this post

    While on tour with 5-piece indie rock band Kaiser Chiefs, sound engineer Chris Leckie, relies on Soundcraft Vi Series consoles for all FOH and monitor needs. Kaiser Chiefs, who released their debut album titled Employment in 2005, have enjoyed great international success touring throughout Europe and the North America. In 2007, Kaiser Chiefs were about to embark on their largest and most ambitious arena tour to date in order to support their second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob, when their… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   For our kids and students wing renovation, I’m building three new tech booths. Having worked in a few dozen tech booths in the past, I’ve been collecting a list of things I like and don’t like about those other ones. I’ve seen a few major issues with tech booths in students rooms; namely, when built out of studs and drywall, the drywall always gets torn up, and the walls tend to get a… View this post

    Some of the most common questions from those researching mid- to large-format live sound consoles for their churches involve VCA groups. What are they? How are they used? What are the benefits? A VCA, or Voltage Controlled Amplifier, is an electronic device in the form of an integrated circuit, or chip, that sits in the audio circuit of each input channel in a mixing console. The audio signal through each input channel passes via the VCA, which controls the level… View this post

    Russian PA company, City Sound, recently selected Allen & Heath’s new GLD digital mixing system to manage BMW Group’s national launch of its new generation 6 Series Gran Coupe. “We were one of the first sound companies to adopt Allen & Heath’s new GLD system in Russia, and had already tested the system at several top level events before the BMW presentation, so we had no doubts about the system’s capabilities,” comments Alexander Kosarev, General Director of City Sound.

    West Midlands, UK-based AV specialist Central Presentations Ltd. (CPL) is one of the first UK rental companies to take delivery of the Yamaha CL5 digital mixing console, introduced earlier this year. CPL already has a large stock of Yamaha LS9 and other desks. One reason the CL5 was chosen is that it runs on the same operating principals as these, so all their engineers who are used to working with Yamaha digital consoles will be able to use the CL5… View this post
