    church sound
    Mike Sessler 07/18/12 10:48 AM,
    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the challenges we face as church sound engineers is to get consistent levels on our recordings. Almost every church I know of records it’s services, either on hard disk, CD, video, cassettes (the horror!)—or a combination of those. Unless you have a dedicated recording mixing position, getting the levels consistent on those recordings is tough. The challenge is simple; the dynamic range of a typical service can be a good 20-30… View this post

    The House of Blues (HOB) has 13 venues throughout the United States, and recently, contracted Sound Image of Escondido, CA to upgrade its front-of house mixing facilities with a combination of Soundcraft Vi4 and Vi6 digital mixing consoles in its New Orleans and Anaheim locations, and a Vi1 console in use at the HOB Mandalay Bay venue in Las Vegas. “Saying that the tour sound business is competitive is like saying that LeBron James is a good basketball player,” says… View this post

    Allen & Heath has launched the ZED60-14FX, a highly compact analog mixer that is ideal for small bands and venues. ZED60-14FX is a companion to the ZED60-10FX launched earlier this year, employing the same high quality 60mm faders but with the addition of an extra four mono/mic channels. Two of the eight mono channels have high impedance jack inputs that can take a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup, so guitars can be plugged… View this post

    mix position
    Chris Kathman 07/16/12 01:01 PM,
    I recall a club show on a tour I mixed where the house console had been moved under an extremely low balcony, placed all the way at the very back, and turned sideways! And, between me and the dance floor was a stairwell to a lower level that I had to detour around every time I went to check out what was actually happening in the room. Afternoon soundcheck started late, and the bandleader had to leave early. I plead… View this post

    Using a strategy initiated at last year’s shows, MADI was the name of the game at the 2012 Summer X Games in Los Angeles as ESPN continues to streamline its broadcast imprint. Using fiber optic cabling over an embedded-audio approach to connect all the venues within a 27-acre radius in downtown LA—as well as all of the submixes, communications, and audio transmissions—offered more inputs, smoother transmission between venues and a more efficient and compact layout. Spec’d by ESPN’s senior technical… View this post
