    Your beautiful worship sanctuary is also an “echo chamber”—a less than ideal acoustic environment. Meanwhile, your sound system is also far from ideal, perhaps purchased from the local music store mostly because the price was “right.” Your task, and “no” is not an option: provide intelligible sound to the entire congregation. Even if the musicians and pastor are the best, how many folks will continue to attend when they can only understand every other word? You might be aware that… View this post

    Once the exception and now the rule on many tours, the practice of picking up whatever hand the house deals in terms of PA from venue to venue isn’t so much a gamble as it is a chance to exercise one’s ingenuity. “VerTec, V-DOSC, Martin Audio, I never complain,” says Spencer Jones with an air of existential audio contentment. “I think it’s actually kind of fun to use a new rig every day, some you may not have even heard… View this post

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Have you ever mixed a song and really struggled to make the vocals cut through? The typical tricks involve equalizing out some lows or boost some highs, but that doesn’t always work. Plus, sometimes all that EQ leave the original vocal feeloing flat and lifeless. Another option is to really squeze the track with compression, but even still sometime that doesn’t have the desired effect, and even worse, there are times when the… View this post

A: In general, the mic designer will determine if the heat from an onboard vacuum tube is significant enough to alter… View this post
