    With 14 campuses in and around the city of Chicago and 25 weekend worship services each Sunday, New Life Community Church is one very active non-denominational Christian church. Until recently, their Midway Campus sanctuary faced a number of speech intelligibility and related challenges with their sound reinforcement system. The situation is now resolved—thanks in large part to the new sound system consisting of Variant Series installation line array loudspeakers from D.A.S. Audio. West Chester, OH-based Troubadour Solutions, an A/V design… View this post

    Previously (here and here), we’ve been looking at sound on a “microscopic” level, examining particle motion as sound propagates through air. This time, let’s look at a larger picture of sound wave propagation. A vibrating object will disturb the surrounding air medium causing localized changes in pressure and particle displacement with the transference of acoustical energy in the form of a sound wave. Waves can be broadly classified as being either transverse or longitudinal. The distinction for each wave type… View this post

    Dear Old Soundman: “I don’t have a nickname. How do I get one? Do I need one?” Sincerely, Scohen Dude! You absolutely need one! Everybody needs one! How about if I call you “Sco”? That is what aspiring young “yo-cat” fusion musicians at the Berklee School of Music in the 80s called guitarist John Scofield. These are the same obsessive characters who smugly referred to Charlie Parker as “Bird” and John Coltrane as “Trane,” and sat around discussing “Chick” and… View this post

    The CAD Audio AS32 Acousti-shield was developed as an essential accessory for recording; when effectively utilized, it can substantially reduce unwanted reflections, echo flutter and environmental acoustic interference. The design results in an easy to use, highly flexible device, while not sacrificing stand-mounted stability. The AS32 Acousti-Shield is constructed from a high quality 16 gauge perforated stainless steel shield mated to 53mm high-density micro cell acoustic foam resulting in a dry recording environment. It is supplied with mounting hardware to… View this post

    d.a.s. audio
    Paul Watson 04/09/12 03:10 PM,
    The D.A.S. Audio journey began more than 40 years ago, when a new enterprise named “Dynamic and Sound” was created by Juan Alberola in Valencia, Spain in 1971. Alberola, with a serious passion for audio, began designing and manufacturing his own loudspeakers and components, initially for studio monitoring and home listening, and all built in-house. Just a few years later, that focus also included producing larger loudspeakers for Spain’s thriving dance club, fueled by the country’s reputation as a European… View this post
