    The ability to control functions of a mixing console remotely has been a real boon to live audio system techs and mix engineers. Another benefit is that many of these remotes allow musicians to access their own monitor mix – freeing up our time, letting them tailor as they wish – and without messing anything else up. Digital consoles can also be easily upgraded with new and/or improved versions of software/firmware. These help foster and enhance iOS device interface and… View this post

When we turn around and look, the mic drooped down toward the floor like a limp noodle. We head back, tighten the clutch some more, only to find the mic will not stay put. I have been so frustrated by this phenomenon that… View this post

    After 18 years at their Glenview stronghold, Gand Concert Sound (GCS) has relocated to a new warehouse that quadruples their space, doubles their docks, and adds a rail spur. “We have been busting at the seams for the last few years and started looking for more space closer to O’Hare International Airport,” states Gary Gand, President. “Real estate being in a slump allowed us to scale up square footage without taking on more financially.” The new GCS space features a… View this post
