    How do we teach aspiring audio professionals to mix? How important is teaching? Can some people even be taught? I’ve seen debates in the ProSoundWeb LAB forums as to whether mixing sound can/can’t be taught. There are a couple of interesting books I’ve read that relate to this idea. The first one is “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel Levitin. Levitin addresses the age-old question of talent versus work effort, and essentially concludes that the real deciding factor… View this post

    Twenty One Pilots, with music falling somewhere between the genres of alternative rock, electropop, hip hop, and indie, has captured worldwide attention since the 2015 release Blurryface. Inevitably, this has led to playing bigger shows than the band has ever seen before. Right now, Twenty One Pilots is in the midst of an 11-month tour dubbed the “Emotional Roadshow World Tour.” The band performs at venues ranging from amphitheaters the size of Berkeley, California’s 8,500-capacity Greek Theatre to Pennsylvania’s 30,000-capacity… View this post

    Berlin-based Complete Audio recently provided sound reinforcement for a concert by Sting at the 24,000-seat Waldbühne Berlin in the Olympic Park––the first time they have worked with the artist. As this was not a full production tour, PA and lights were sourced on a local basis, and Martin Audio’s premier rental partner was on hand to provide its MLA multi-cellular loudspeaker array. “We offered MLA and they were happy to take it,” reports Complete Audio MD, André Rauhut. While the… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Brad I’ve been with a country artist for several years now and I have experienced this distortion on his vocal mic only on several occasions. (way to often) I have experienced this both on our touring consoles / systems (SC48) and on walk up consoles / systems. Everything from giant Milo rigs to small night club… View this post
