    An interesting “audio related” item we ran across on YouTube today: “This recording of the 2011 Japanese earthquake was taken near the coastline of Japan between Fukushima Daiichi (the nuclear reactor site) and Tokyo. The initial blast of sound is the 9.0 mainshock. “As the earth’s plates slipped dozens of meters into new positions, aftershocks occurred. They are indicated by “pop” noises immediately following the mainshock sound. These plate adjustments will likely continue for years. “Georgia Tech Associate Professor Zhigang… View this post

    One of my favorite field tools is a basic analog impedance meter. It can be used to troubleshoot a host of sound system problems, either stand-alone or with some additional gadgets. The TOA ZM-104 has been around for many years and many experienced audio people have one. Mine has served me well and has the scars to prove it. It will be the example meter used in this article, although in principle the tests can be conducted using any similar… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A group, sometimes called a subgroup, is basically another mix bus that you can send the output of channel faders to. You could say that the Main Left and Right is a group—a stereo group typically. The signal comes into the input channels, the gain is set, it’s EQ’d and finally the output goes through the fader to a group; either the L&R main output—sometimes there’s a Mono option also—or you may have… View this post

    First United Methodist Church of San Diego is the largest Methodist church in southern California and occupies one of the most architecturally-splendid church campuses in the area. Over many decades, First United has struggled with sound reinforcement systems for its multiple venues that somehow always failed to live up to expectations. Recently, Paul Svenson of Sound Casework Inc. (PS Audio Video) reversed the inertia of that sorry history, unifying all five sound systems under a common, easy-to-use, foolproof paradigm centered… View this post

    Craig Leerman 03/07/12 10:49 AM,
    The early history of the development of wireless microphone systems is a bit murky as to “who did what and when,” but it might be surprising to know that they’ve been around in various forms for more than 60 years. In fact, back in the mid-1940s, publications such as Popular Science showed schematics and kits for making low-power wireless microphones that could transmit to a nearby AM radio. The Shure Vagabond system, which debuted in 1953, most certainly was one… View this post
