    When I started working with audio, most companies built their own main and monitor loudspeaker enclosures. Some did it because it could save them money, but the majority did it because they wanted products that were simply not commercially available, so they had to design and build the systems themselves. Today there are a multitude of loudspeaker companies making a wide variety of different enclosures – with more designs hitting the market seemingly every week – but there are still… View this post

    German electro house duo Digitalism has been touring internationally this year with Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing systems for front of house and monitors. “Early on in the tour, the band only carried one iLive system, to keep monitors consistent,” explains house engineer Daniel MacBean. “However, we were so impressed with how easy the system is to tour with and set up that we decided to get a second system in for front of house. It literally takes 30… View this post

    Out Post Sound has been working closely with the team behind the Batman Live World Tour to create fully synchronized dubbed version of the show for foreign language audiences. Ros Cranmer, General Manager for the production said: “Having never even seen a live theatrical performance dubbed into another language, I was nervous about how it would work for our arena production of Batman Live.  The final result, however, was fantastic, and it became clear that a foreign language voice-over actually… View this post

    Recordings of worship services can be a blessing in many ways, and quality recordings aren’t that hard to achieve. That is, if there is a firm understanding of the fundamentals. Previously, we looked at how to connect a mixing console to a recording device, considering connector types, Y-cables and identifying the right connectors for your specific situation. (Click here to read that article). But there’s another option: connecting a console’s XLR (three-pin pro audio) connector to a recorder’s RCA or… View this post

    I was working on some array predictions and wondered just how close “like” loudspeakers are in response. To find out I rounded up some loudspeaker pairs from the warehouse to do some comparisons. I limited the test to loudspeakers that could be measured up close and personal – within a couple of meters. This would minimize any errors due to aiming and the environment. I also looked at the magnitude of the frequency response only, as the phase response will… View this post
