    Greetings, Old Soundman, from the Great North Woods— And greetings to you from my secret location! I’m not all that old, only been riding the faders for a few years now. Ride ‘em, soundman! Yee-ha!! Hey, did you ever hear of the X Bar X Boys? The calluses are just about right on my fingers and in my ears. What a bizarre viewpoint. I don’t really like to think about calluses. But whatever floats your boat! I was one of… View this post

    During a recent week-long tour of Mexico, pope Francis addressed record audiences at five venues around the country, accompanied by Solid State Logic Live L500 and L300 consoles in a variety of roles.

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   When it comes to discussing the fine art of mixing music, I tend to approach the subject with some trepidation. After all, compared to many of the topics I’ve written about, this one is rife with subjectivity — one person’s idea of a great sounding mix may be another’s sonic nightmare. And what works for one genre of music will be decidedly wrong for another. But all those variables aside, there are at least a… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the most challenging aspects of doing production in a church setting is that church happens every week. During the week we have meetings, stuff to fix and install, TPS reports to file and a host of other things to get done. It’s pretty easy to drop into mechanical way of doing things. Sometimes, we do things because we’ve always done them that way. Other times, we do whatever we inherited from… View this post

    Hi. My name is Craig, and I’m a gearaholic. I tried to find a 12-step program, but quite frankly if I have to move gear more than six steps, I’m going to need a hand truck because my back isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just that I like gear; it’s that I’m addicted to it. I fall asleep reading equipment catalogs. I bypass articles in trade magazines, unless they’re talking specifically about gear, to look at the… View this post

    Editors note: From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature provides a highly in-depth look back at the concert tour of a legendary artist, circa February 1981. (Volume 12, Number 1). The text is presented unaltered, along with all original graphics. With inflation spiraling ever upwards, not many groups can afford to tour extensively, and fill the large arena so popular a few years back. Bruce Springsteen is one of those superstars who can sell… View this post
