    The multimedia Christmas musical, A Star is Born, was one of the performance highlights during the Christmas advent events held at the ZKM Art & Media Centre’s Filmpalast cinema in Karlsruhe, Germany, mixed on Allen & Heath dLive systems.

    Change is the only constant. (“Well, it used to be.” “Oh, what happened?” “It changed.”) Several years ago, I got a call to mix front of house for Uriah Heep on a mini-tour of the U.S. I hadn’t mixed a headliner rock band in a long time.

So I’ve… View this post

    Technology in professional audio (and technology in general) has changed so much and so quickly that it’s become difficult to get up to speed and stay up to date. The learning curve for some aspects of what we do is quite steep and appears to be accelerating. Analog consoles are challenging enough, but the number-crunching digital beasts are even more complex. We hardly used wireless 20 years ago, now it’s everywhere. Outboard effects have become plugins, and what were once… View this post

    For Shawn Turner and the congregation at Burleson, Texas’ Oak Grove Baptist Church, the selection and installation of a DiGiCo S21 mixing console for their new worship space was a story of delayed gratification but “well worth the wait,” says Turner. “When we started the AVL install a year and a half ago I was doing a lot with a little and I had budgeted about $6K for a console. Well, at that time, there was a big hole in… View this post
