    Many live mixes are not only too loud, but also sonically unbalanced. I got to thinking about this (again) when recently re-reading “How Loud Does It Need To Be?” by Peter Janis of Radial Engineering here on ProSoundWeb. Yes, I’m saying it right here: far too many live mixes are just plain bad. That is, too much bass, too many highs, and dynamics out of control. Add this to SPL in excess of 110 to 115 dB and it’s not… View this post

    In the early 1990s I was serving as a maintenance tech in a large recording studio complex when I got a call from the sound company I’d worked for in the previous decade. Was I available to mix and tech front of house for the upcoming Canada Day (July 1st in Canada, like July 4th in the U.S.) gig at the provincial legislature? I hadn’t done live sound in a while, but it was a daytime gig, on a paid… View this post

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this post

    OSA International recently had to produce back-to-back events for two clients who used Chicago’s Navy Pier in very different ways. Fortunately, they had Martin Audio MLA to help them overcome a number of challenges. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Designight 2016 had the venue for one night while the Gateway for Cancer Research Cures Gala 2016 was set for the following evening. Both of the events were completely different technically, and had to be strategically designed to provide both… View this post
