    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 person on the team. It’s also common not… View this post

    Powersoft K3 and M50Q DSP+ETH amplifiers were recently installed at the Music Hall in Worpswede, Germany.  Worpswede is a small village that has been hosting a lively artistic community since the end of the 19th century. The Music Hall is situated in a building dating back to 1870 that was originally designed for live events. Since then it has changed hands a number of times while retaining its primary use as a performance venue. It has been known as the… View this post

    When noting the contributions of Don and Carolyn Davis to the professional audio industry, it’s hard to know where to even start. Their book, Sound System Engineering, originally published in 1973 (and since updated), remains a standard audio and systems resource. Founders of SynAudCon, Don and Carolyn established the industry’s pre-imminent and most respected (and independent) educational resource, teaching thousands the essential concepts of audio and acoustics that in turn has led to remarkable advancements in systems and sound quality… View this post

    Sun Life Stadium, home of the NFL Miami Dolphins and NCAA University of Miami Hurricanes, is located just a half-mile from the main “antenna farm” of transmitters for the city’s TV stations, creating potential for dropouts and interference that can plague wireless microphone systems serving referees. “The referee solution we had in place, although operational, lacked resiliency,” notes Bryan Lykins, the team’s newly hired director of broadcast operations. “This is why we engaged Shure Axient.

    Housed within the modern Radisson Edwardian Guildford Hotel, the Market Kitchen & Bar describes itself as an all-day Mediterranean café, offering local bistro lunchtime dining before turning into a cosmopolitan evening destination. The venue required a sound system that could provide hi-fi music at low level from an eclectic playlist stored on hard-drive during the day, then pump up the energy into the bar lounge later on when a fully-specified DJ front end comes into play. To meet the combined… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   It’s time for some predictions for the new year. Here’s what I see happening in 2012. The good part is that we’ll see just how accurate I am on some of them by the end of January after the CES and NAMM shows. For a few others, we’ll have to wait awhile. Here we go. 1. Tablets take off for music production. For such a relatively new class of products, tablets like… View this post
