    Many people know Kenny Larkin as an artist—but few know that he is also a producer and studio owner, and his studio just got some familiar new gear. After his older digital mixer broke down, Larkin knew it was time to return to analog, and knew API would be just the ticket. “I had to look for something new, and I had that analog itch again. I wanted more warmth in my recordings without having to keep going through outboard… View this post

    To accomplish anything in life, we, as humanly creatures, must utilize an assortment of resources to accomplish any given task. For example, going to a store to purchase something involves brain time in making the decision to venture out, “wear and tear” on our vehicle, and the depletion of our finances – all are expenditures of resources.

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   I can’t even begin to say how great this year’s InfoComm was.  After a couple of decades in the AV industry, you would think attending the same show every year would wear on you, but it actually invigorates me. When I see so many friends, colleagues and clients in one place I end up so excited and optimistic about the year ahead, and especially about the future of our industry. This year… View this post
