    Swedish rock band Takida has embarked on its sellout spring tour of Scandinavia, The Burning Heart, with Midas PRO2 consoles being used for FOH and monitors. Leading Scandinavian hire company Starlight, which purchased the PRO2s from Midas’ Swedish distributor Intersonic, is the first company in the region to use a dual system on a tour. “Overall the system is very stable, and I really feel I can fully trust it,” says monitor engineer Robert Egnelius. “The POPulation and MCA groups… View this post

    In 2011, the Royal Shakespeare Company installed a DiGiCo SD7 console in the refurbished Swan Theatre, Stratford upon Avon. It proved to be such a success that when the Company needed an additional mixer for its touring shows and West End transfers, they chose another DiGiCo board – this time the SD9. “We have a long relationship with DiGiCo and needed a console to transfer shows that currently exist on an SD7, but would be playing in smaller venues,” says… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Growing up in a one hundred year-old home, I learned how to fix plumbing problems.  One lesson was tracing all the pipes in the basement so I could tell which pipes had fresh water and which ones carried sewage.  You might say it was my first exposure to signal flow. Signal flow is the flow of the audio signal from the sources of input to the places of output, from sound-to-loudspeaker,… View this post

    When it comes to maximizing their mix, streamlining workflow and meeting the needs of their artists, few monitor engineers are willing to say they’re doing anything entirely unique. Still, every artist has different demands, and that informs choices made in monitor world. We tracked down several engineers working in various genres to talk about the approaches they’ve developed to meet those demands, quickly and efficiently, at the console level.

That’s not my model.” Jenkins is the owner and founder of Arizona Concert Sound Solutions, “a company smaller than the name,” he says of his Phoenix-based dispensary of high-quality audio for small… View this post

    Brussels-based Studio La Buanderie has recently installed a 16-channel API 1608 – a console that its owner and engineer, Pieter Apers, calls, “the holy grail in recording.” Apers purchased the fully-analog console through API dealer Amptec, who is credited with quickly bringing multiple 1608 consoles into Belgium. “I have always been an audio enthusiast, so I have known about API for a very long time,” said Apers. “But when I was choosing a console for my studio, I considered a… View this post
