    No matter how much dust Luke Bryan’s current Kill the Lights Tour kicks up, the party and the good times just keep rolling. With seemingly no venue deemed off-limits on his schedule, the two-time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year is on the road with a backdrop of dates recently played or soon to come at festivals, in arenas, sheds, stadiums, fieldhouses, and even the wide open spaces of farm fields, where his annual Farm Tour returns him to… View this post

    Hans Haas is passionate about many things, particularly audio, science and technology, and brewing beer. It’s a combination that led him open Wavelength Brewery last year in Vista, CA. But describing Wavelength as “just” a brewery would do it and Haas a disservice, because the venue is also becoming a hub for technology education in the Vista area. Haas’ career has taken winding path, starting in the tech world as a network engineer. “That became boring real fast,” he says.… View this post

    Whenever I’m at the local Guitar Hut, I like to listen to the people who come in and talk with the pro audio sales guy about gear. These conversations are often filled with nebulous audiophilic adjectives like “warm”, “sweet” and “punchy”. The sales guy has little motivation to be a source of truthful or accurate information. He just wants to make a sale. Meanwhile many of his customers already have their minds made up as to what piece of gear… View this post

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   There are many things which shouldn’t happen during a worship service, yet still do. However, unless we’re cognizant of them sometimes it’s hard to prevent them. So I decided to create a list of those things that just shouldn’t happen in a worship service. Some of these may seem so silly, so expected, so taken for granted that they’re almost not worth saying. But you’d be surprised how many times I’ve seen… View this post

    Finding the right day rate for freelance audio/production services isn’t easy for anyone at first. It’s a math problem that includes working with several complicated and random variables. There’s the need to ask other freelances in the area about it, doing the research, and worst (scariest?) of all, assigning a number to your worth as a professional. Let’s walk through it together. Here are some things to take into consideration before deciding a bare-minimum day rate: —What is the minimum… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Chuck Your favorite topics of discussion are kick drum mics and loud guitar players. You can open a door with any part of your body (while carrying equipment). Your deck at home is finished with Dura Tex. Your home stereo is covered with Rat Fur (or are Shure Vocal Masters) Reply by Ivan If you pay… View this post
