    Anyone who has survived more than a few hours behind a console has already accumulated a few amusing tales of the pro audio life. It doesn’t take long before they start sounding like war stories, sitcoms or detective novels. From my experience, the primary talent that identifies a true industry pro is their ability to manage pressure and make things happen without excuses. The ones who can be dropped into any situation and run it like it was rehearsed. Becoming… View this post

    This article is provided by L M Watts Technology   I’ve always admired ribbon microphones, having built them in my high school years from gum wrapper foil, surplus magnetron magnets, and filament transformers. Much Later after research and design engineering stints at Shure, Electro-Voice, and other places I wanted to add a ribbon mic to my new microphone company. But I wanted something a little different from a standard figure 8 design. I was fascinated with the multi pattern/non figure… View this post

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   Several common questions are often asked related to loudspeaker sound reproduction, such as: 1. Why does a loudspeaker sound different when moved to another room? 2. Why does my new bookshelf loudspeaker sound terrible at home? They were great in the showroom! 3. Why does the loudspeaker sound muddy/bassy inside a room? It was great when I listened to it outside. There are other questions, but readers can get the point… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A few years ago, Tim Cool from Visioneering posted a thought-provoking post of the same name (The Cost Of Getting It Wrong). It’s very good, and I suggest you go read the whole thing. He asks several questions related to staffing, building and designing. As I thought about what he wrote, one particular question resonated with me: What will it cost to have the wrong audio and acoustics in your worship center? Again,… View this post

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This fine article was featured in the March 2004 issue of Live Sound International. We reprint it here in celebration of our 25th anniversary. How many sound systems are in use? Many millions, for sure, and they’re found in all types of venues and for all kinds of programs. So one would think we’d know exactly how to do it by now. But there seems to be plenty of examples to prove that we don’t. Why should this… View this post
