    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   Few things can affect the quality of a sound as loudspeakers being out of polarity. You can lose bass response, cancel out vocals and cause general phase mayhem in a sound system. There are many ways to determine polarity; however, here’s a very inexpensive and easy solution to test for proper wiring inside loudspeaker cabinets before installing them, and without running any audio signal through them. See Thumper, below. It’s my trusted polarity signal… View this post

    Radial Engineering announces that the 4-Play direct box, designed for artists who employ multiple instruments on stage, is now shipping. The 4-Play begins with a standard ¼-inch input for acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass or just about any instrument. A mute footswitch lets you silence the switcher when connecting or disconnecting the instrument. The signal is then routed to a selector footswitch that sequentially activates up to four outputs allowing each instrument to have its own dedicated channel on the… View this post

      It’s all about inputs and outputs (I/O). How do I get an audio signal from one to the other? The ongoing evolution of professional audio has produced a number of viable digital interfaces to complement legacy analog I/O practices. The choices may seem confusing at first, but when you break them down the strengths and weakness of each become apparent. In this overview, I will start with analog since it is familiar to most readers and serves as a… View this post

    In its most basic form, a DI – also known as a direct box and short for “direct injection” and/or “direct insert” – takes an unbalanced high-impedance signal (i.e., from an electric guitar or keyboard) and converts it to a balanced low-impedance signal. This process is needed when running high-impedance signal at long distances, such as down a snake to a front of house console. Unconverted, the unbalanced signal can pick up noise; also, sending high-impedance signal at longer distances… View this post

    Radial Engineering announces the Tonebone Headlight, a compact guitar amp selector, is now shipping. The Headlight is able to sequentially activate up to four amps using a single footswitch. A second muting footswitch may be used for quiet on-stage tuning or switching instruments between songs. It can also be set up to turn all of the amps on at once. According to Radial’s head of Artist Relations, Jim Rhodes: “Radial has been making guitar and amp switchers for years. But… View this post

    Audinate  has announced the immediate availability of the Dante analog output module, a small form factor PCB designed to allos for rapid development of Dante-to-analog endpoints. Manufacturers can use this module in a variety of small footprint enclosures with appropriate analog connectors to more quickly bring finished products to market. The module supports one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analog outputs. It can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced… View this post

    Canadian hard rock band Kobra and the Lotus just finished a 35-date tour of Europe that saw the 5-piece group visit 18 countries. Helping the band travel lightly on the road was a Midas M32C digital rack mixer and DL32 stage box to handle in-ear monitor mixing. Production manager Andrew Peters, who also recently completed a stint of shows in the U.S. with metal band DragonForce, also made use of the M32C, stating, “Ease of transportation is the major selling… View this post

    Attero Tech is now shipping two new Bluetooth audio interfaces. Not to be confused with consumer Bluetooth interfaces, the Attero Tech unBT2A and unD6IO-BT are designed specifically for use with commercially installed AV systems. The company also released the new new unDNEMO-BT, a Bluetooth-enabled, Dante network audio monitor . Both audio interfaces employ a simple, consistent, one-button pairing and connect process that avoids the frustration often associated with pairing consumer Bluetooth products. The pairing button is defeatable for restricted-use applications… View this post
