    One of the primary event spaces at the Detroit Institute of Art (DIA), the second-largest municipally-owned museum in the nation, is benefitting from a sound system upgrade that centers on an Ashly Audio PEMA integrated processor/amplifier and FR-16 network fader remote control. “The walls, floors, and ceiling of the event space are solid stone,” observes Dennis Phillips, owner of Phillips Pro Audio, the company that designed and installed the new audio system. “It’s an art institute, after all.

    Go here to read the entire Sound Mountain Series. For a long time now, Ben hadn’t thought about his early days in the business at Jack’s. Eighteen months ago, he’d been picked up for his first major tour as a systems engineer, after working a regional festival. His experience with AC distro, grounding and making panels and stringers had proven valuable. The veteran touring guys from the national act recognized Ben’s skills and attitude by the end of the first… View this post

    Like a “miniature Red Rocks” nestled amid the raw scenic splendor of Southwest Utah, Tuacahn Amphitheater is an outdoor venue that hosts off-Broadway theatrical runs, as well as national and regional musical acts. The nearly 2,000-seat venue occupies the end of a red rock box canyon and draws visitors from nearby communities, as well as escapees from Las Vegas. Because the shows at Tuacahn – which have included Tarzan, Grease, Cats, and Annie, among many others – are held to… View this post

    On rare days off from running sound, I get the opportunity to go to several local clubs to check out the work of other mix engineers. This is really cool because I pick up tips that can help my own work, in addition to experiencing a wide range of gear. One thing in particular that I pay close attention to is effects, and I find that in most every case, some type of effect is applied on almost every instrument… View this post
