    ARX announces the release of its 2nd Generation USB DI, the first with dual mode audio input interface - digital and analog - for two DIs in one. “ARX released our first USB DI back in 2007 and the unit has become an industry standard for USB - analog audio conversion” says ARX managing director, Colin Park. “Recently we’ve been looking at where and how ARX’s USB DIs are being used, and concluded that along with USB enabled devices, some… View this post

    Energy Transformation Systems (ETS) introduces its new AES/EBU digital audio adapters. Model PA851 (Female XLR) and model PA850 (Male XLR) allow transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals up to 100 meters over Cat5 UTP The exclusive ETS digital audio adapter (PA850 Series) is impedance-matched, balanced and isolated to provide AES/EBU signals over Cat5 or better unshielded twisted pair wiring. Testing has shown the signal performance over UTP is equal to that of 110 ohm single shielded twisted pair wire even… View this post

    What is impedance? Impedance is the AC (alternating current) version of the DC (direct current) term resistance, which is the opposition to electron current flow in a circuit and is expressed in ohms. Impedance (often abbreviated as “Z”) includes capactive reactance and inductive reactance in addition to simple DC resistance. Reactance depends upon the frequency of the signal flowing in the circuit. Capactive reactance increases as frequency decreases: inductive reactance increases as frequency increases. Because of this frequency dependence, impedance… View this post

    analog digital conversion
    Dennis A. Bohn 08/15/16 12:53 PM,
    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in 1997, but the principles are still valid today and worthy of repeating. Like everything else in the world, the audio industry has been radically and irrevocably changed by the digital revolution. No one has been spared. Arguments will ensue forever about whether the true nature of the real world is analog or digital; whether the fundamental essence, or dharma, of life is continuous (analog) or… View this post

    For as long as I can remember, there has been a sound created by an instrument that spells rock ‘n’ roll with just a letter and a number: B3. That’s the Hammond B3 organ to those who don’t know the code. The B3 was first used by churches to stand in for far more expensive pipe organs, and at about one-hundredth of the price, it (as well as its fancy sister C3 and home version A-100, which all have the… View this post

    Switchcraft announce an addition to our HPC series of high current connectors for loudspeaker and power applications.  All HPC connectors are fully compatible with Neutrik Speakon connectors.  This updated 4 pole version (HPCC4FT) has the turn to lock latching mechanism that has become standard in these types of connectors. The existing version (HPCC4F) has an XLR-style push lock. In addition to loudspeaker applications,  HPC connectors are touch-proof, rated for 30Amps, and have been used for AC power applications.

    Digigram announces the release of the compact, high-density, low-power IQOYA *X/LINK. The new device integrates multiple IP audio codecs and IP audio protocols to facilitate robust low-latency distribution for studio-to-studio links (SSL), studio-to-transmitter links (STL), DVB radio, and web radio programs from low-latency, AES67-compatible synchronous audio-over-IP (AoIP) sources. “Our new IQOYA *X/LINK gives IP audio-based studios a cost-effective and easy-to-manage solution for distributing multiple audio programs simultaneously to targets such as FM transmitters, DVB/cable operators, and web radio CDNs,” said… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   Operating the sound system from the mix position during a Sunday worship service, “it” all began when the first note from our grand piano was distorted. Hmm… We’d checked the piano channel and sound prior to the service, and all was fine. My first reaction to the distortion now being produced was to reduce the gain on that console channel, thinking perhaps the piano player was “nailing” the keys very hard. Yet… View this post

    recording
    Daniel Keller 08/10/16 06:01 AM,
    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   When most people think of stereo recording, the first thing that comes to mind is a matched pair of microphones, arranged in a coincident (XY) pattern. It makes sense, of course, since that’s the closest way to replicate a real pair of human ears. But while XY microphone recording is the most obvious method, it’s not the only game in town. The Mid-Side (MS) microphone technique sounds a bit more complex, but it offers some… View this post

    Shure has announced that the new Microflex Advance Ceiling (MXA910) and Table (MXA310) Array microphones are now shipping. The line of networked ceiling and table array microphones, audio interfaces, and control software for A/V conferencing are designed to integrate into meeting space aesthetics. With the ability to flush-mount the MXA910 alongside standard ceiling tiles, and the new “toroid” polar pattern in the MXA310, the microphones offer a package of technologies to help deliver optimum performance. Microflex Advance also presents an… View this post
