    After a few years away, recently I’ve returned to working with live sound in the field, at the request of a classical musician friend who talked me into it for a series of concerts with his contemporary group. We’re talking a modern version of classical music style – think Steve Reich and Nathan Davis – using traditional instruments combined with electronics in a variety of ways. Some of it has effects, some of it has pre-recorded material that the musicians… View this post

    Take a breath of fresh air on a country morning. That’s the sensation you get from a well-amplified acoustic ensemble. Guitar, upright bass, mandolin, dulcimer, banjo – all produce a sweet, airy sound that can be captured with the right approach. Acoustic music heard over a sound reinforcement system is all about beauty and naturalness, not hype. Listen to a number of well-recorded CDs of old-time country, bluegrass and acoustic jazz. In most cases you’ll hear no effects except some… View this post

    The BBC will broadcast the London 2012 Olympic Games from the specially built International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in the Olympic Park, using no fewer than seven Harman Studer Vista and OnAir consoles, along with a Route 6000 network core. This will enable the BBC to take feeds from 34 participating Olympic Games venues for domestic transmission through its network. Following a promise to broadcast “every session of every sport every day,” this will amount to some 2,500 hours of TV… View this post

    Any time a band has some of its sound coming through the main PA system (usually vocals and electronic instruments) and some of the sound coming from the stage acoustically (most notably the drums) you have problems. The drummer must play loud enough to keep up with the sound system, which he cannot hear. However, playing loudly enough for the back row of listeners means that the drums are often too loud for the first several rows. It’s even louder… View this post
