    Gary Gand 01/05/12 03:50 PM,
    It’s New Year’s resolution time again. Many of you who are my Facebook friends know that my resolution for 2011 was based on the theory that doing nothing is actually doing something. Put into practice, this became a goal of not shaving for a year, and I ended up growing the same beard that I had in high school. It was a fun quest, and had side benefits such as totally confusing publishers of recent “congrats on 40 years in… View this post

    Kenny Rogers recently wrapped up his annual “Christmas & Hits” tour that runs from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, with Frank Farrell, Rogers’ technical director and monitor engineer, noting that the sold-out tour goes to every kind of venue from arenas and casinos to theaters and high school auditoriums. Designed to be “as frugal as possible in this economy,” the tour includes an 8-piece band and a full complement of A/V equipment with multi-video servers and five projector screens, all of… View this post

    Dear Old Soundman: Studio engineers verses front-of-house engineers - can they be one and the same? Studio guys don’t want to let us get a shot at their jobs, because we would wipe the floor with them! Unfortunately, we would also wipe the floor with their clients! Do I really want to spend three months listening to some rock star (who tries to pretend he’s a man of the people) reveal how completely dependent he is on the click track,… View this post

    Sun Life Stadium, home of the NFL Miami Dolphins and NCAA University of Miami Hurricanes, is located just a half-mile from the main “antenna farm” of transmitters for the city’s TV stations, creating potential for dropouts and interference that can plague wireless microphone systems serving referees. “The referee solution we had in place, although operational, lacked resiliency,” notes Bryan Lykins, the team’s newly hired director of broadcast operations. “This is why we engaged Shure Axient.

    Housed within the modern Radisson Edwardian Guildford Hotel, the Market Kitchen & Bar describes itself as an all-day Mediterranean café, offering local bistro lunchtime dining before turning into a cosmopolitan evening destination. The venue required a sound system that could provide hi-fi music at low level from an eclectic playlist stored on hard-drive during the day, then pump up the energy into the bar lounge later on when a fully-specified DJ front end comes into play. To meet the combined… View this post
