    Alford Media recently provided audio, video and lighting for a dynamic marketing event with 16,000 people in the round at the Orange County Convention Center. Faced with the challenge of providing consistent coverage and superior audio quality despite the venue’s acoustic shortcomings, Alford designed an innovative audio solution consisting of Martin Audio MLA Compact and Mini hangs deployed in concentric circles around the stage. As Alford’s front of house engineer Jonathan Lieurance explains, “This was a high-energy multi level marketing… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This one obviously goes back a few years, but the information is worthy of repeating. Audio folks can be snobs when it comes to gear. But the reality is, we can’t always have our favorites. Sometimes, it’s a simple budget issue. At Coast Hills (my church), we didn’t have the budget for Meyer Sound, d&b audiotechnik or L-Acoustics loudspeakers. If I had held out for those brands because they have more… View this post

    When heavy metal band, Stryper was scheduled to play at The Liberty in Roswell, New Mexico, recently, John Pennell, owner of Total Productions, turned to FBT to supply a complete front of house rig utilizing Mitus 206 line arrays and Mitus 218A subs. The Liberty is a popular venue with bands making their way from Texas to Albuquerque on their tours, but it’s also a rental space for private events. With this in mind, Pennell has always had to be… View this post

    Sia set numerous attendance records on her Nostalgic for the Present Tour, which crisscrossed North America during the fall of 2016 in promotion of her latest album, This Is Acting. The artist is continually redefining her performance art and relied heavily on a full complement of Adamson E-Series loudspeakers to do so on her most recent run. Front of engineer Jon Lemon was given direct instructions from the artist to “make it sound like the record.” He subsequently received the… View this post

    Attention shoppers: the good news is that in this century, there is very little bad sound equipment. There are still plenty of bad engineers (not enough sleep and too much fun) and bad combinations of gear (70-volt clusters and powered mixers driving powered loudspeakers). But the stuff coming out of the factories - and even a lot of the proprietary (home brew) gear - is light years beyond the stuff we all got stuck with in the past. A not-so-famous… View this post

    This past May, Adamson’s distributor for China, Real Music, launched a national education and demonstration program to promote the new S-Series among the brightest up-and-coming show service providers. The results of this effort has now lead to the introduction of twelve new S-Series partners in the region. David Dohrmann, Adamson’s technical director Asia Pacific, will head up in-depth training this month for these newest customers in Xi’an and Beijing, and he is excited for the next phase of the partnership… View this post

    Courtesy of Merlijn van Veen.   Why does a specification like “We need a sound system capable of delivering full range 103 dB(A) of clear and undistorted sound at the front of house position” make me scratch my head? Because, typically the mix doesn’t exhibit an A-weighted spectrum. Even as a precautionary measure to make sure the sound system is capable of handling the show, this remains a questionable specification. Never mind that it doesn’t mention an integration time (average)… View this post
