    This article is provided by L M Watts Technology   I’ve always admired ribbon microphones, having built them in my high school years from gum wrapper foil, surplus magnetron magnets, and filament transformers. Much Later after research and design engineering stints at Shure, Electro-Voice, and other places I wanted to add a ribbon mic to my new microphone company. But I wanted something a little different from a standard figure 8 design. I was fascinated with the multi pattern/non figure… View this post

    Nearly 30 years ago Cui Jian, the “Father of Chinese Rock,” performed “Nothing To My Name” during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium, launching a cultural music movement that celebrated its 30-year anniversary with the Music Power Rock China 30 tour, recently hosted at the same location. Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) Adaptive Performance loudspeakers – manned by front of house engineer Jim Ebdon – was on hand to reinforce the notable occasion. “The arena is an older, round building made… View this post

    Grammy-winning artist Beyoncé’s Formation Tour requires 56 semi-trucks to transport elements such as a 60-foot-tall rotating LED “Monolith” that represents each chapter of the show, a treadmill runway and a secondary stage that stores and pours 2,000 gallons of water. When the show recently moved onto its European leg, it required five Boeing 747 aircraft to transport it, including a main arrays of 96 loudspeakers and three DiGiCo SD7 audio consoles provided by Eighth Day Sound.

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Imagine you walk into church one day and are told, “your job just got easier because we aren’t using praise bands any more…we’re going back to the pastor leading hymns.” Last night, while reading a church magazine, I noticed the variety of advertisements. Interested in improving your church? How about: • Softer chairs • Different colored pews • Software to monitor giving, attendance, birthdays, and the member’s favorite tv show •… View this post

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   Several common questions are often asked related to loudspeaker sound reproduction, such as: 1. Why does a loudspeaker sound different when moved to another room? 2. Why does my new bookshelf loudspeaker sound terrible at home? They were great in the showroom! 3. Why does the loudspeaker sound muddy/bassy inside a room? It was great when I listened to it outside. There are other questions, but readers can get the point… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Networked audio has been around since the late 20th century. However, that’s like saying rail travel has been in place for 200 years. There’s a big experiential difference between climbing aboard a mid-century diesel on the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) to Patchogue and taking the Acela from Boston to D.C. Both will get you between points on a map but the latter will do it faster, more efficiently and more effectively.… View this post

    Special Event Services (SES) of Winston-Salem, NC recently purchased a new Yamaha PM10 Digital Audio Console and immediately put it out on tour with monitor engineer David Baker for Lynyrd Skynyrd. “After having owned many of the original PM1Ds, we were eagerly awaiting its successor, states vice president/co-owner/head of audio, Jason Farah. The Yamaha PM1D was such a reliable platform, there was no question we’d add the PM10 to our inventory.” Farah said SES still owns and uses Yamaha digital… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   In the eyes of some people, I “cheat” when mixing.  This cheating usually takes place when I’m working with a band and/or singers that I don’t know that well. One of the common things that we face in church production today is “the worship team” - usually four to five singers that vocally lead the service or presentation. Too many times to count, I’ve found myself mixing and not knowing a single… View this post
