Livesound B-AG are a long-term customer of Soundcraft—and of its Swiss distributor, Dr. W.A. Guenther Distribution, who over the past two decades has kept… View this post

    A common application of both fixed and portable sound reinforcement systems is for meetings spaces of 50 people or less seated on a flat floor plane. Here are some approaches that have produced good results. Arrays One of the important principles to follow in such spaces is to aim the loudspeaker at the back row. Those folks need the highest SPL and directivity, both of which are usually on the main axis of the loudspeaker. It’s also important to not… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   On Twitter, @busyscott asked if I knew of any “How To” guides for building a portable sound system. I thought for a while, and realized I couldn’t think of any. So I thought I’d write up a Reader’s Digest condensed version. This won’t be comprehensive, but will have a few thoughts on what I consider important for portable system design. Of course, all these ideas need to be considered in light of your… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   The topic of audio perception has been pretty hot lately. From the popular news media coverage of Mastered for iTunes to the pages of TapeOp magazine, it’s not uncommon for people to be asking the question, “can you really hear the difference?” This is very good news for music and music lovers. That might not seem like an extraordinary question for people to be asking, but the elastic reach of… View this post
