    As the winner of 11 Tony Awards, Hamilton—a musical about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and the book by Lin-Manuel Miranda—has been a success. There’s a tremendous amount of talent and excitement in this show and, to ensure the best possible audio quality, interfaces from RME—distributed by Synthax.—are an integral part of the show’s production. Drummer Andres Forero and sound engineer Justin Rathbun are actively involved in the music performance and audio production for… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Constant-voltage is the common name given to a general practice begun in the late 1920s and early 1930s (becoming a U.S. standard in 1949) governing the interface between power amplifiers and loudspeakers used in distributed sound systems. Installations employing ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, such as offices, restaurants and schools are examples of distributed sound systems. Other examples include installations requiring long cable runs, such as stadiums, factories and convention centers. The need to do… View this post

    Focusrite has announced the launch of a new eight-channel mic pre/A-D/D-A, the Clarett OctoPre, designed to allow the rapid addition of eight mic/line inputs and line outputs with the company’s Clarett range of audio interfaces, or other interfaces that include ADAT optical I/O. The Clarett OctoPre includes eight of the Clarett range’s ‘Air’-enabled mic pres: the ‘Air’ effect emulates the transformer-based sound of Focusrite’s ISA range of heritage mic pres. The preamps include extensive headroom, making them ideal for drums… View this post

    Radial Engineering announces the new LX3 passive line splitter. The Radial LX3 is designed to send one audio signal to as many as three destinations at once. Completely passive with no need for power, you simply plug in and the LX3 goes to work delivering your audio wherever it needs to go.   The heart of the LX3 is a Jensen transformer, which provides two isolated outputs to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops, along with a third direct… View this post

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   Most musicians really don’t want to learn about electrical engineering, or even how basic electricity works. Everyone, however, should learn how to test for and avoid electric shocks on stage. Guitar amps and mixing boards as wired from the factory are inherently safe, but they can become silent-but-deadly killers if plugged into an extension cord or wall outlet that’s improperly grounded. This is because guitars are held in moist hands while wet lips… View this post

    Energy Transformation Systems (ETS) has introduced the Balanced Line AES/EBU digital audio splitters and panels. Models PA830, PA832 & PA835, specifically designed for the professional audio market, are passive units, so no external power is required. AES/EBU digital audio splitters and panels are used for balanced 110-ohm signals, and accommodate signal levels to 10 volts. Since proper impedance is maintained, the splitters do not have to be symmetrically applied. Owing to careful specification and minimal signal modification, units may be… View this post

    Formed in 2012, Fifth Harmony has quickly risen to major touring status backed up with impressive recording sales success. The all-female pop/R&B group, currently out on the 7/27 Tour of the U.S., Europe, and South America in support of the latest album of the same name, is visiting both arenas and amphitheatres, with sound reinforcement provided by Clair Global (Mannheim, PA) and a veteran live audio team. Front of house engineer Matt Lawrence is mixing on a new Allen &… View this post

    Sometimes the differences between a good and a great system design are the “little things” like cables, connectors, mounts, stands, rigging, and so on. So let’s shine a bit of light on these often overlooked aspects. Loudspeaker cables come in many styles and lengths but they all do the same thing, which is to provide two conductors to connect a passive loudspeaker to its respective amplifier output. The rule of thumb is simple: “Use the largest gauge cable possible and… View this post
