    As an audio technician, my ears have the final say in how a system is tuned, but with the passing of time, they’re not quite as reliable as they used to be. As a result, I’m increasingly relying on measurement systems to help with dialing in the PA. I also utilize SPL apps on my phone and iPad to help monitor volume levels, and that’s worked out well. So when I first saw the iSEMic 725TR measurement microphone from iSEMcon,… View this post

    From the January 1989 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Barry McKinnon interviews a pioneer of our industry. Every industry has its pioneers, those individuals who took the first stab at a field no one else considered or wanted to try, and the sound reinforcement industry is no different. Bill Hanley has been in the mobile sound reinforcement business for more than 30 years and has been involved with major artists and events such as the Beatles… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Whenever an engineer has trouble dialing in the EQ on a track, chances are its because of one or more of the 6 trouble frequency areas. These are areas where too much or too little can cause your track to either stick out like a sore thumb, or disappear into the mix completely. Let’s take a look. 200Hz (Mud) - Too much can cause the track or the mix to sound muddy… 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 Jay Last weekend I refused to let a band roadie (did the setup but didn’t mix or anything) use their own stage drops at the front of the stage. One of the drops I did approve was a Hubbell 4-plex with the low profile plastic box. One I rejected was the same but broken and held… View this post

    In 1980 I was working for a band, doing sound…and lights…and some backline…from front of house. During the 11 months I was with them, the band completed a successful showcase, landed a record deal, released its first album, and did a national tour of bars and universities. Truck and van deal…did I mention that I also drove the truck? On this particular night, pre record deal, we were part of the way through a week-long gig at a Toronto bar… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   AVB technology is another one of those great industry acronyms we all (should) know and love. It stands for Audio Video Bridging, and is technology based on IEEE 802.1 standards that have been developed by a consortium of experts in the professional audio industry. CI has asked an experience integrator, Fred Harding of distributor Capitol Sales, to define AVB and as a failsafe, Lee Minich, Marketing Work Group chair for the AVnu… View this post

    Not so long ago, consoles with 32 channels and 16 auxiliaries could cover the requirements of almost any band and most festivals, but today, bigger shows often require 100 channels and 50 mixes or more. At the same time, the genre of large-format consoles continues to grow and evolve. The recently introduced Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 and Avid VENUE | S6L, both highly anticipated, have now been released and are seeing steadily increasing action in a range of applications. Further, Allen… View this post

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Some terms: The Fast Fourier Transform is an algorithm optimization of the DFT—Discrete Fourier Transform. The “discrete” part just means that it’s an adaptation of the Fourier Transform, a continuous process for the analog world, to make it suitable for the sampled digital world. Most of the discussion here addresses the Fourier Transform and its adaptation to the DFT. When it’s time for you to implement the transform in a program, you’ll… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   How many mute mistakes have you made?  You wouldn’t think one little button with one simple function would cause many problems but it does!  Time after time, people fall victim to its simplicity. Now you can find out how to minimize your mute mishaps. The first mute mistake I ever made was when I was working at radio station 89.5 WFCI – Indy’s New Rock Alternative. 95 percent of the music… View this post

    If you happen to make your living from this industry, I have a thought for you to consider… Learn the art of customer service. Good luck with that idea, though. There aren’t a lot of great examples anymore. Just pick a random memory from any recent trip to a big box store or restaurant. Chances are, you encountered someone who hates their job, despises customers and has no intention of positively representing the company that is currently providing their paycheck.… View this post
