    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’m always fascinated on how I end up having the same conversation with multiple people over the course of a few weeks. Topics rotate, but when one hits, I end up talking about it a lot. Recently, I’ve had at least four conversations about live streaming church services. I’ll start by saying I’m not categorically opposed to live streaming church services. I can understand why many of the big churches that live stream… View this post

    We recently came across this interesting thread on the Live Audio Board (LAB) forum here on ProSoundWeb, and present it here with a very light copy edit and trim for space. Perhaps you’ll actually want to experiment with the concept discussed here… Question posted by John L Nobile: I’ve done a search on this and found a few things, but wanted to know if delaying the mains to the backline will cause any problems for the performers. I’m planning on… View this post

    “What’s important to Adam (Levine) and the rest of the band is providing the audience with an incredible, bigger than life experience,” states Jim Ebdon, front of house engineer for Maroon 5, currently on the “V” world tour. “You can tell when you’re in the audience that the guys are having fun – they really, really enjoy playing together and it comes across in their performance.

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time I was doing the typical thing of going with what I was told worked or what I watched the engineers I had assisted do.  Specifically, I was recording piano with a pair of matching microphones in an XY pattern around the hammers. I knew about many approaches (another mic at the far end of the piano and then pan that mic over to the bass side of the stereo… View this post
