    When I was getting stated in this business, I had some excellent mentors along the way. One of the things they taught me was to be prepared with a set of tools and the knowledge to use them properly. While organizing the U.S. Air Force Band Sound Workshop (an annual event for military sound engineers) during the 1990s, I passed along this information to the budding audio people, many of whom were musicians transitioning to sound for a variety of… View this post

    Currently serving as the director of Danley (Sound Labs) University, Doug Jones grew up in northeastern Congo, the child of missionary parents, and his feelings about his childhood experience are complex: the benefits — difficult to articulate — came at considerable costs. “It’s hard to know how to share my story with anyone who wasn’t a missionary kid,” he says. “And yet it is my story; it shaped who I am today.” Jones has long mused about the radical discord… View this post

    Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in the November/December 2001 issue of Live Sound International magazine. ————————————————————- At the announcement of my children’s birth, the first thing everyone asked was “what did they weigh?” It always struck me as somewhat peculiar. Of all the personal qualities you could discuss, such as the color of the hair, or how healthy they are, weight seems a strange specification. Fancy telling somebody that you have just purchased a new car: “Oh really, what… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   DI boxes (“Direct Instrument” or “Direct Inject” boxes) are very helpful tools in a live sound system. The most common type is called a passive DI, which includes an isolation transformer and ground lift switch.  The primary function of a DI box is to convert the unbalanced (1/4-inch 2-conductor) phone plug output on your keyboard or guitar into a low-impedance (low-z), balanced (3-conductor) XLR jack, which can be plugged directly into your signal snake… View this post

      Editor’s Note: Be sure to check out Pat’s related articles on this topic, including Examining FIR Filtering In Sound Reinforcement Systems and Creating & Applying FIR Filters. We live in an age of “bigger is better.” During a recent SynAudCon Forum thread, I suggested that this philosophy is not necessarily true for the length of an FIR filter. As of this writing, the typical filter length supported by DSP is 1024 taps, with some as high as 4096 taps.… 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 June 2016. Note… View this post

    This article is provided by Sensaphonics.   Editor’s note: I’ve known Michael Santucci for a couple of decades now. I’ve been to his clinic and have talked with him numerous times about hearing health. His company, Sensaphonics, a manufacturer of in-ear monitors, is unique. The products are designed to promote safe listening through maximum isolation, and it’s the only IEM company with a Musicians Hearing Clinic on site. They would literally rather sell you a hearing test than a pair… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   What makes a live recording sound live? The audience, of course. A live recording is all about the energy of the event, and that energy comes from the crowd, so some real thought has to be given as to how it’s captured. Just setting up some microphones haphazardly usually produces less-than-desired results. To avoid that scenario, let’s have a look at some proven mic techniques for live recording. First, it can be… View this post
