    Over the years many have debated the relative merits of “looking at screen traces” on an analyzer versus using human hearing to determine how a loudspeaker, or an entire system, actually performs. While both practices are of course valid, it’s extremely difficult for the human ear to detect, characterize, and correct small deviations in frequency and phase response, and even harder to characterize driver distortion in a meaningful manner. Likewise, the ear is often stymied when attempting to typify transient… View this post

    Alford Media recently provided audio, video and lighting for a dynamic marketing event with 16,000 people in the round at the Orange County Convention Center. Faced with the challenge of providing consistent coverage and superior audio quality despite the venue’s acoustic shortcomings, Alford designed an innovative audio solution consisting of Martin Audio MLA Compact and Mini hangs deployed in concentric circles around the stage. As Alford’s front of house engineer Jonathan Lieurance explains, “This was a high-energy multi level marketing… View this post

    Founded way back in 1865 as the First Baptist Church of Watertown, Wildwood Church in East Moline, Illinois moved into its current 600-seat sanctuary in 1980. Although not original to the building, the church’s most recent sound system was very old and regularly imperiled services with the threat of feedback, complaints of unintelligibility, and uneven coverage. That’s all changed with the installation of Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, spurred by the realization that Danley was responsible for the sound… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This one obviously goes back a few years, but the information is worthy of repeating. Audio folks can be snobs when it comes to gear. But the reality is, we can’t always have our favorites. Sometimes, it’s a simple budget issue. At Coast Hills (my church), we didn’t have the budget for Meyer Sound, d&b audiotechnik or L-Acoustics loudspeakers. If I had held out for those brands because they have more… View this post

    After 37 years together, jazz fusion luminaries Manteca have firmly established themselves as seminal proprietors of the genre. But even after all this time, co-founder Matt Zimbel and his crew are not finished innovating. Their twelfth full-length effort, fittingly titled The Twelfth of Never, features the band’s nine principle players and a surround mix supported by Neumann. While a traditional stereo recording of the album was released at the end of September, an offhand discussion between Zimbel, who also works… View this post
