    Ever wonder how to cue an ensemble in the dark? Just grab a few 220-ohm resistors and some light-emitting diodes and you’re halfway there. Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA made a mark on innovation and ways to experience music as an audience member with a recent percussion ensemble performance of “Pika-Don” by American composer James Tenney. The piece is a musical representation of a percussion ensemble paired with prerecorded voiceover tracks of writings taken from the scientists at the first… View this post

    Get more of the latest news from the 2012 PL+S show.   At the Prolight+Sound 2012 show in Frankfurt, Sommer Cable is presenting the new Cardinal DVM120 Series, which includes seven audio tools for professional live and studio applications. Devices include: DVM-120-TDI Tube Direct Box. The combination of a very high impedance input and a high-class buffered valve stage takes care of very sensitive signal sources in an optimal manner. So, for instance, the high-Z input will prevent the overloading… View this post

    One of my favorite field tools is a basic analog impedance meter. It can be used to troubleshoot a host of sound system problems, either stand-alone or with some additional gadgets. The TOA ZM-104 has been around for many years and many experienced audio people have one. Mine has served me well and has the scars to prove it. It will be the example meter used in this article, although in principle the tests can be conducted using any similar… View this post

    audio fiber optics
    Buddy Oliver 02/23/12 02:46 PM,
    An easy way to understand how fiber optics works: visualize peering into a very long tube, the inside of which is coated with a perfectly mirrored surface. One mile away, at the opposite end, a friend shines a bright flashlight into the tube. Because the tube is internally coated with a perfect mirror, you will see his light perfectly at your end, regardless of how many twists and turns the pipe takes. If your friend flashes the light off and… View this post
