    When measuring loudspeaker systems, the question of phase response often arises. I thought it might be informative to review setting the receive delay within a measurement system so that the displayed phase response is the “correct” one. I have the word correct in quotes above because for a given magnitude response there are an infinite number of equally valid phase responses. This is due in part to what is called propagation delay. This is simply the time of flight of… View this post

    The ancient Roman amphitheatre in Verona was the magnificent setting for Intimissimi on Ice, an evening of music and dance on a vast iced stage, all supported by ArrayProcessing from d&b audiotechnik. Designed in the classical amphitheatre style, the two thousand year old stone structure is elliptical in shape, with the outer walls standing about seventeen meters in height. The audience was seated in the remaining half of the arena floor and on seating built into the steeply tiered bleachers… View this post

    The Singapore American School (SAS) has installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system in its upgraded school auditorium, fixing a sound issue that prevented performers from hearing each other clearly. The system now gives students the opportunity to learn about active acoustics technology first hand, while also providing a customizable sound experience for community productions. “As a school, we have a bold vision to be a world leader in education, cultivating exceptional thinkers, prepared for the future,” says Dr. Chip… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   There has been a lot of discussion about how loud we run our services. I got to thinking about this recently while going through a thread on the Church Sound Forum. The question was posed, “How loud at FOH?” The answers varied greatly, from in the mid 80s to well over 105 dB SPL. Then a debate ensued about whether the metering of the sound should be done with A-weighting, C-weighting, fast or… View this post

    phase alignment
    Bob McCarthy 01/06/16 06:11 AM,
    The setting of delay times in signal processors is one of the principal techniques of system optimization. In most cases the timing is set to “align” two (or more) signal sources so as to create the most transparent transition between them. The process of selecting that time value can be driven by time or phase, hence the relevant terms are “time alignment” and phase alignment.”  These are related but different concepts and have specific applications. It’s important to know which… View this post

    Those of us who indulge in live sound spend countless hours paying attention to every detail in the audio signal chain - comparing, pondering opinionating and deciding every issue that crosses our path. Does this mixing console sound better? Do I need to spend an extra $2,000 on a vocal compressor? Can you please move the guitar mic two millimeters to the left? Does phantom power really ruin ribbon mics? One question persists, however: to what end is all this… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   The other day I was pursuing one of the many online sound groups and came across a question from someone who I believe to be a volunteer sound tech at a church. He was asking if sound was subjective. He had been dealing with various other leaders in the church and was struggling to come up with a consensus on whether there was “good” sound or if it’s all in the ear of… View this post
