    On June 13, the city of Baltimore kicked off a three-year national commemoration of the events of 1812 with the Star Spangled Sailabration, a seven-day festival of concerts, celebrations, fireworks, an international parade of ships, and a rousing air show featuring the Blue Angels.  To provide audio support for the Blue Angels air show, Continental Air Show Productions selected a dozen Community R.5HPT loudspeakers. As CASP’s Dave Olmstead of observes, the Community R-Series is unequalled in power, coverage, and intelligibility.… View this post

    Nady has introduced their latest in-ear monitor system, the PEM-1000. This state-of-the-art system allows you to hear your monitor mix clearly anywhere on stage (no matter how loud the music is), and offers all the advantages of wireless in-ear monitoring/mobility—clear focused audio, feedback protection, and the elimination of heavy, hard-to-transport floor monitors.  The PEM-1000 features 100 pre-set user selectable UHF frequencies for interference-free performance; up to 8 systems can operate simultaneously.  The system consists of one PEM-1000T transmitter and one… View this post

    BASSMAXX has found a home in Treehouse…the immensely popular South Beach techno venue where low end and a high intensity crowd are married in a euphoria of music and dance. BASSMAXX provided and installed six self-powered double 18-inch subwoofers and four self-powered double 12-inch bass horn cabinets, complete with on-site system tuning and optimization, into the subsequently crowned Miami NewTimes “Best Small Music Venue – 2012”. “These days, DJs’ demands on equipment are consistently surpassing the status quo of just… View this post

    “I thought cables didn’t matter, so I tried running my system without them. Huge difference!” —  Posted on a hi-fi audio forum Now that we understand what to measure and how (part 1 and part 2), and know that a null test can prove our measurements valid, let’s use that knowledge to bust some common audio myths. The earliest audio myth I can recall is the benefit of fancy wire for connecting loudspeakers, and it’s still going strong. Some vendors… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s a list I love from Steve Guttenberg, the audio reporter over on the CNET blog. It’s the top 10 reasons why music is compressed today. As you’ll see, there are a lot of things in the list that make sense. With all the talk about hypercompression (over-compression), we tend to forget that people really do like the sound of compression. It’s just when it’s used to excess that engineers and listeners… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I couldn’t believe my eyes!  The sound check was over and the sound guy had all the volume faders set at zero and all the EQ pots set at the noon position.  Listening to the music during the service, it was obvious there was no depth to the mix. That was probably 20 years ago, but the memory has stuck with me. Mix depth is the mix arrangement of sounds in… View this post
