    As we bask in the all-enveloping glory of the digital age, it’s come to my attention that some intrepid live sound engineers are very occasionally coming across analog equipment as they travel to some of the dustier corners of the globe. While many of us are old enough to remember these beasts, not everyone has had the opportunity to operate these relics so I thought it might be a good idea to write a guide to the “ancient art” of… View this post

    Take this simple test. Carefully compiled from decades of experience and using the latest auto-psycho-algorithms, it will provide guidance in your career choice. 1. Do you show up on time? Yes. Go to question 2. No. Try getting one of those “work from home” jobs where you make $5,000 a week stuffing envelopes. Good luck! 2. Do you like to work with a wide range of personality types? Yes. Go to question 3. No. Pursue a career in broadcast, where… View this post

    This article is provided by SoundGirls.org   I meet a lot of sound engineers and techs around my age (mid-20s) that strictly stick to audio and don’t dare to touch anything else, whether it be to stay focused on audio or to not get roped into something they don’t particularly want to do. There isn’t anything wrong with this. Laser-focusing on one discipline can yield some great results. I know that my passion lies in audio, live sound especially. I… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   It’s surprising that so many monitors (loudspeakers that is) are purchased just from a review or word of mouth, since they’re such a personal item. Here’s an excerpt from my Studio Builder’s Handbook (written with Dennis Moody) that covers some things to think about before you purchase your next set of speakers. 1) Don’t choose a monitor because someone else is using them. Just because your favorite mixer uses a set of… View this post

    The much-discussed auction of the 600 MHz frequency band is happening in the U.S., and it may well affect present wireless systems as well as related issues such as frequency planning/coordination. It’s important for everyone who works with creating the content that will stream on the mobile devices when the spectrum is cleared to understand the present situation and to be planning for the transition to different frequency bands.  Several leading pro audio wireless system manufacturers have taken the lead… View this post

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Most people who’ve looked at digital audio before know about the Nyquist theorem. If you sample an analog signal at a rate of at least twice its highest frequency component, you can convert it back to analog, passing through a low-pass filter, and get back the same thing you put in. Exactly. Perfectly. The Real World In the real world, though, many people argue that analog “sounds better.” How can this be,… View this post
