I realized that I had actually just barely scratched the surface in terms of telling him about the wide range of responsibilities that many of us have. For example, we’re regularly involved with sales before the show (and often during and after). From simply speaking to clients about their needs, to putting bids together, to being… View this post

    Directed by Nick Palmer, Mr. Christmas is a new independent documentary film about Concord, California’s Bruce Mertz, a man who both figuratively and literally brightens his community each December with the 50,000-plus lights decorating his house. Already sweeping up awards at film festivals in Aspen, Philadelphia, Palm Springs and Providence, the short 15-minute documentary features a score composed by Jim Briggs, who tracked all of the instrumentation through a collection of A-Designs Audio processors.

    When the highly-respected Recording Arts and Sciences Program at the Peabody Conservatory/John Hopkins University needed to replace an aging console they turned to API. The staff ultimately chose a new sixteen-channel Audio 1608 console because of its authentic sound quality and flexibility. The University program, which awards a double-major Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s of Arts in Audio Sciences is the American equivalent of the European Tonmeister training program. Its students benefit from being in close alliance with the JHU’s… View this post

    A couple of years ago marked the 40th anniversary of Altec Lansing’s passive third-octave “continuous” equalizer that began modern sound system equalization. It didn’t start as a graphic equalizer, but rather, was three rows of eight knobs on third octave centers. A companion third-octave real-time analyzer, three rows of eight VU meters, provided a means to measure a sound system. Subsequent Altec EQs replaced the knobs with a row of sliders, earning the name “graphic” because their positions provide a… View this post
