    Thousands of counterfeit Shure microphones were recently confiscated by customs officials in Peru and Paraguay. The actions were the result of ongoing investigations by Shure representatives in both countries, in cooperation with local customs and law enforcement agencies. The seized products will be destroyed under the supervision of customs agents. In Peru, 2,303 counterfeit Shure microphones were seized by customs officials as the products were being imported into the country. The microphones included models C606, SM58, and PG58.

    Many things around us are getting better. Computers are faster, televisions have more resolution, and dishwashers are quieter and more powerful than ever. But with all of our digital wiz-bang processors, technology has been unable to eradicate “bad sound.” Why is this so? This short piece is an attempt to shed some light on three possible causes, two of which have been completely unaffected by the technological revolution. The goal of most sound reinforcement systems is to deliver high quality… View this post

    Tied into the upcoming Super Bowl game in Indianapolis, late night television host Jimmy Fallon is broadcasting four shows from the Hilbert Circle Theatre in downtown Indianapolis. It presents a challenge in recreating the studio setup of the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show,” which is normally broadcast from NBC Studios at 30 Rockefeller Center.  Nathaniel Hare, front of house mixer for the show, was tapped as the sound designer for the four dates (three live-to-disc and then a live… View this post

    When amplifying an acoustic guitar, the use of a microphone can lead to concerns about feedback as well as being able to adequately amplify the instrument. With electric guitars, there are also concerns about the microphone adequately and accurately picking up the sound from the guitar amp, and in many cases, there’s also a desire for a quieter stage. Both scenarios lead to the use of direct (or DI) boxes as an alternative. But note that when selecting a direct… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   A reader is puzzled by stereo (2-mic) acoustic guitar recording: I recently got into mixing acoustic guitar with 2 mics. The problem is that I do not know how to create as much ‘space’ as some tracks I know of. I’ve tried XY, ORTF, and spaced pair. XY and ORTF are too narrow. Spaced pair seems reasonable (following the 3:1 Rule), but the mic pointed closest to the body becomes overly… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This article, #InstallationFail, has been inspired by the many, many instances of bad installation practices I’ve seen throughout the years. I’ve been taking pictures and cataloging these for quite some time, and I figured it’s time to share them with the world. Now, I should point out I’m not publishing these to make anyone feel bad. Though some of you should feel bad for some of these installations. But that’s not the point.… View this post

    The use of wireless technology from Lectrosonics provided benefits for the recent production of the musical “Gypsy” by the University of Evansville Department of Theatre. “‘Gypsy’ is a story about vaudeville performers turning to burlesque to make a living,” explains Richard Ingraham, a Cleveland, OH-based free-lance sound designer operating under the name RBI Computers and Audio who was brought in to work with the production. “There’s a strip routine in the show and the main character—Gypsy—had the most revealing part.… View this post
