    Much pro audio industry humor revolves around techs versus musicians. By their very nature, techs are knowledgeable problem solvers. The flip side of this nature are musicians who “don’t let knowledge get in the way” of their artistic pursuit. Hence the endless put downs: “Can you read music? Not enough to hurt my playing.” “What do you throw a drowning guitarist? His amp.” “Why did the drummer leave his sticks on the dashboard? So he can park in the handicap… View this post

    1) Adding More Snares to Snare Drums If you’re presented with an “inherited recording” to mix (one you didn’t engineer) with live drums where no bottom mic was used on the snare drum, or the track sheet says “snare” but all you’ve got to work with is a dull thump, try this: Route an aux send bus output from your mixing console to a small powered loudspeaker (or, if you have an extra power amp, a regular small passive loudspeaker)… View this post

    It was 1984 when I first sat in front of an FFT (Fast Fourier transform) analyzer during a concert and made decisions about tuning sound systems. I’ve been doing it ever since, and have written a lot of articles and a few books about this, but these are usually very focused and detailed. This time I’ll go a completely different direction: a dartboard of 30 things I’ve learned in 30 years of being hyper-focused on one thing. No proofs or… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: Another classic piece worthy of repeating. This one originally appeared on PSW in 2010. I was reading an article a while back about normal people who use computers and the power users (AKA IT guys) that support them. The article talked about the routine problems normal people had using computers and how challenging it was for IT guys to help them. Not because the IT guys couldn’t solve the problem, but… View this post

    Many of us are masters at the logistical side of loading and unloading trucks and moving gear. Correctly positioning and tuning the PA for the best coverage is almost second nature. After years of doing our jobs, we’ve become decent (or better) mixers, getting musicians to sound great in the PA. We’ve even acquired the skill of dealing with diva performers and smarmy promoters.  And when problems arise on a show like they always seem to do, our troubleshooting and… View this post
