    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

    Editor’s Note: This article appeared in the premier issue of Live Sound and Touring Technology, a supplement to Recording Engineer/Producer magazine, published in January 1992. It provides an interesting time capsule on the state of the sound reinforcement and loudspeaker market of the time in addition to offering salient information that’s relevant today. By the way, that fledgling publication now goes by the name of Live Sound International and will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2016. Few areas in modern… View this post

    Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in the March/April 2000 issue of Live Sound International, and it still provides a wealth of valuable information on this important topic. Q.) What does a power amplifier do, anyway? A.) In a nutshell, a power amp takes your audio signal and provides both voltage gain and current gain to drive loudspeakers. The voltage gain is necessary because line-level audio runs around a volt, peaking at maybe 8 to 12V, and loudspeakers need… View this post

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   “Can you come to our church and run sound in a few weeks?” “Can you run sound for my band next weekend?” Work as an audio geek long enough and you’ll get these questions, usually followed by the statement, “Don’t worry, we’ve got all the gear, you just need to show up.” Danger Will Robinson! I’ve been in these situations and one thing’s for sure: it’s never as easy as it sounds. Standard… View this post

    rational acoustics
    Jamie Anderson 11/24/15 01:06 PM,
    Feed The Brain. The primary job of a measurement rig is to acquire electrical and acoustical signals and feed them to the processor so that it can analyze, compare, slice, dice, fold, spindle and mutilate those signals and produce multi-colored charts, graphs and the all-important squiggly lines. “But my software can produce squiggly lines all by itself without all those bothersome wires, preamps and microphones. Isn’t that enough?” Maybe. It depends on whether you are getting paid to pose or… View this post

    The reshaping of entertainment production wireless operations in the U.S. is currently underway, and it will impact all wireless microphone, in-ear monitoring and intercom system users – including those working in church sound – in the near future. The shrinking UHF band, where the vast majority of wireless systems currently operate, will get even smaller with the 2016 commencement of the 600 MHz incentive auction to allow the mass introduction of white space devices. Almost all of the remaining UHF… View this post
