    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1 (loudspeakers) and part 2 (signal processing) of this series. The high-resolution dual-channel audio analyzer is a standard front-of-house tool in the modern sound system. There are quite a few versions available, such as Rational Acoustics Smaart, Meyer Sound SIM, SATlive, AFMG Sys-Tune, Metric Halo Spectrafoo, and more.  These tools are common, quite inexpensive, and offer information that’s fairly easy to understand and act upon. It was only a short time… View this post

    Whether it’s a large festival line array rig or a single loudspeaker on a stick, all audio systems have one thing in common and that’s a need for power. Before starting to design, build, or use any power distribution equipment, the local laws and electric code should be consulted. The place to start is the National Electrical Code (NEC), sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and published every three years. The purpose of the NEC is to safeguard… View this post

    I’ll bet you have some of these, too: things people say or concepts they have wrong but won’t change, despite considerable evidence. The pro audio market is rife with some of these things. There are good reasons for us to keep doing what we’re doing – if it’s been working. (“If it ain’t broke” and so on.) Nevertheless, if we aren’t continuing to learn, grow and change, we’re stagnating or worse. O.K., let’s start with getting the ones with wireless… View this post

    Last year we presented a collection of quotes (here) from various folks working in pro audio, all of which have appeared on ProSoundWeb as well as Live Sound International magazine over its 25 years of existence. It proved a popular feature, so popular in fact, that we decided to serve up another round of sage advice and observations collected from audio professionals along the way. Enjoy. “Anybody can provide equipment; it’s the way you implement that equipment and the attitude… View this post

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we thought it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of August 2016. Note… View this post

    Dear Old Soundman: Studio engineers verses front of house engineers - can they be one and the same? Studio guys don’t want to let us get a shot at their jobs, because we would wipe the floor with them! Unfortunately, we would also wipe the floor with their clients! Do I really want to spend three months listening to some rock star (who tries to pretend he’s a man of the people) reveal how completely dependent he is on the… View this post
