    Perhaps best known as the perennial front of house mixer for Tool, Alan “Big Nobby” Hopkinson spent most of 2011 on the road with System Of A Down. It was his first tour with the band, and his first behind a Midas digital mixing system – the PRO9. “I’ve been a longstanding Midas user, but it’s always been an XL4 analog for me until now,” says Hopkinson. “I have used Midas digital previously though, as we have a PRO6 installed… View this post

    Solid State Logic is pleased to announce that Rik Simpson has installed a Matrix in Coldplay’s Beehive studio in North London. Coldplay set up the Beehive in 2010, and Chris Martin asked Simpson to be involved in the design and build of the new studio. Simpson tried out the Matrix in the process of co-producing and engineering Coldplay’s fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto at the Beehive last year and like it so much he decided to keep it. Mylo Xyloto… View this post

    Built in the Golden Age of elaborate movie palaces, Honolulu’s Hawaii Theatre is an exquisite example of the gilded glamour that characterized its era. The Hawaii opened its doors in 1922, decades before Hawaiian statehood, making a strong statement that Honolulu was no backwater. Technically and aesthetically, the neoclassical theater was state-of-the-art, reinforcing the notion of the movie house as a sort of temple to the gods of cinema. Among the innovations that delighted patrons were the double-cantilevered balcony and… View this post

    Do you replace production/system equipment based on it being worn out or for new features and functionality? When we get a new system or new piece of gear, often the last thing on our minds is repairs or the life cycle of the system. In my view, churches are getting better at understanding professional A/V systems. I find that in general the market is more aware of the cost versus the expectation of the system, along with the willingness to… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve had several people ask me about my vocal effects lately, so I thought I’d write a post about it. A few caveats: First, this is descriptive, not prescriptive. I’m not telling you what you should do, but what I’m currently doing. Second, this has changed about 4-5 times over the last 4-5 years. My process changes to adapt to the hardware I have available. If Waves comes through with some of their… View this post

    German electro house duo Digitalism has been touring internationally this year with Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing systems for front of house and monitors. “Early on in the tour, the band only carried one iLive system, to keep monitors consistent,” explains house engineer Daniel MacBean. “However, we were so impressed with how easy the system is to tour with and set up that we decided to get a second system in for front of house. It literally takes 30… View this post
