    BlackBox Recorder manufacturer JoeCo has commenced shipments of its new 64-channel Dante recorder.  The BBR64-DANTE was developed as a result of continuing collaboration between JoeCo and Audinate, creators of the award-winning Dante digital media networking solution. Still only occupying 1U of rack space, despite doubling its track count from 32 to 64, the BBR64-DANTE now ranks alongside its 64-channel MADI sibling as one of the smallest large-scale audio capturing devices currently available. The recorder connects to any Dante-enabled network device… View this post

    Following a comprehensive refit, the German Museum of Film has installed QSC’s Q-Sys Integrated System platform to manage and route all of the audio sources under its roof, together with K Series active loudspeakers to handle playback in its new demonstration and seminar rooms. The Museum of Film opened in 1984 in Frankfurt am Main and has always been more than a traditional, educational film museum. With its rolling program of exhibitions, cinema presentations and retrospectives, it has sought to… View this post

    Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system has been selected by FOH engineer, David Millward, as the console of choice on Morrissey’s 2012 worldwide tour. Millward selected an iLive-80 Control Surface and iDR10 modular MixRack fitted with a Dante Card for multitrack recording and virtual soundchecking because the production required a small, lightweight console for travel. “I’ve been using iLive on tours with Tindersticks over the last couple of years, most recently renting a pair of R72 surfaces, and I’ve… View this post

    live sound

    After a few years away, recently I’ve returned to working with live sound in the field, at the request of a classical musician friend who talked me into it for a series of concerts with his contemporary group. We’re talking a modern version of classical music style – think Steve Reich and Nathan Davis – using traditional instruments combined with electronics in a variety of ways. Some of it has effects, some of it has pre-recorded material that the musicians… View this post

    The BBC will broadcast the London 2012 Olympic Games from the specially built International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in the Olympic Park, using no fewer than seven Harman Studer Vista and OnAir consoles, along with a Route 6000 network core. This will enable the BBC to take feeds from 34 participating Olympic Games venues for domestic transmission through its network. Following a promise to broadcast “every session of every sport every day,” this will amount to some 2,500 hours of TV… View this post

    Any time a band has some of its sound coming through the main PA system (usually vocals and electronic instruments) and some of the sound coming from the stage acoustically (most notably the drums) you have problems. The drummer must play loud enough to keep up with the sound system, which he cannot hear. However, playing loudly enough for the back row of listeners means that the drums are often too loud for the first several rows. It’s even louder… View this post
