    Independent FOH engineer Nigel Paul is using the Midas PRO9 digital live audio system for the band’s ongoing world tour. Dream Theater has been on the road almost continuously since July 2011 in support of its 11th studio album, A Dramatic Turn Of Events. Clair Global is the audio provider. For Paul, choosing a Midas PRO Series console was an easy decision. A career-long fan of Midas analog consoles, most notably the XL4, he became an early adopter of the… View this post

    Music producer, songwriter and remixer Jake Gosling, best known for his collaboration with artists such as Ed Sheeran and Wiley, has just bought himself an Audient ASP008 mic preamplifer, which he is using in his Surrey-based Sticky Studios. Supplied by high end studio sales company Kazbar Systems, Gosling couldn’t be more satisfied. “Kazbar Systems lent me the ASP008 as we needed extra mic pres for our DAW,” he explains. “I was instantly impressed with how dynamic and punchy the pres… View this post

    Recycled Percussion holds the distinction of the highest non-vocal finalists ever on “America’s Got Talent”. They’re now playing for audiences at the famed Tropicana Las Vegas Theater, performing six interactive shows a week using nearly 60 Audix mics to capture their brand of mayhem. From the moment guests enter the theater and are each handed a drum stick and something to bang on, to the curtain raising to reveal… well nothing, it’s obvious that this will not be a typical… View this post

    Baker Audio of Norcross, Georgia, recently upgraded the audio system at the University of North Carolina’s (UNC) Kenan Memorial Stadium, home of Tar Heels football since 1927, with JBL VLA line arrays. Baker Audio shares strong ties to UNC and installed an innovative sound system to complement the stadium’s new “horseshoe” design. Keith Hicks, President of Baker Audio, took great pride in revamping the sound in his alma mater’s stadium, where he played four decades ago as a scholarship UNC… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Let me start off by saying that Tim Corder has done a great job of writing about monitor mixing. He has several posts tailored for various musicians and even went so far as to include audio examples. If you haven’t already read them, you should. Tim wrote about building IEM mixes for Electric, Bass, Drums, Keys, and Lead Vocal. Check it out when you have a few minutes. With that said, I was… View this post

    Total Events, based in Geelong Victoria, supplied a Harman-based audio system for background music, MC and umpires at the Geelong Lawn Tennis Club stands for the recent Davis Cup tennis tournament in Australia. The main challenge for Total Events was keeping a minimal layout without obscuring sightlines and the company’s stock of JBL Professional VRX Constant Curvature loudspeakers was well-suited for the application due to their low visual impact. Six JBL VRX918S powered subwoofers and 12 JBL VRX932LA loudspeakers were… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   On Friday I had the pleasure of sitting in on a meeting with three representatives from Apple at Oasis Mastering, as they briefed us on the latest info on the new “Mastered for iTunes” program. While there’s already some info on the program currently available, it was good to finally get the most up-to-date details directly from the source. Here’s the gist of the program. “Mastered for iTunes” at its most basic… View this post

    In April, the Miami Marlins inaugurated a new season of baseball in brand-new Marlins Park, located in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami. The stadium’s distributed sound reinforcement system, designed by Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams (WJHW) of Dallas, incorporates 517 EAW MK, QX and MQX Series loudspeakers. The system was installed by Minneapolis-based systems integrator Parsons Electric. Marlins Park has a retractable roof, but in order to best take advantage of the sun for its natural-grass field, the stadium… View this post
