    Located in the heart of Toronto, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts has hosted a variety of international attractions and stars since opening its doors as the O’Keefe Centre in 1960, featuring Alexander H. Cohen’s production of the pre-Broadway premiere of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot starring Richard Burton and Julie Andrews. Its stage has also hosted a who’s who of music legends such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Diana Ross, and Tom Jones. The mantra of presenting top-shelf live… View this post

    For Sam Berkow, acoustical design, sound measurement, and audio in general are lifetime passions, the ones that ultimately led him to found SIA Acoustics, and later, SIA Software Company, the creator and developer of the SMAART (now stylized as Smaart) tuning and measurement platform that’s had a tremendous impact on professional audio. Over time, Berkow has plied his design talents at iconic performing arts and production facilities across a broad spectrum, among them SFJazz Center in San Francisco, AirShow Mastering… View this post

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   It’s a truism in standards-testing industries: you can only test for parameters for which you have tests. In the acoustics business that means testing is limited to measurement values which have accurate and repeatable tests, like sound pressure. This is especially important when you consider that hearing – our system of ears and brain – is highly complex, and some sound-perception functions have no equivalent in current test methodologies. Or, put more simply, you can’t… View this post

    The rough and tumble world of reality TV not only puts the show’s contestants through the wringer, it also subjects the equipment used in production to extreme conditions. Be it submersion in water, dirt, or who knows what else, the gear must work. Welcome to the world of audio supervisor / sound mixer Rian Engelen. He relies on his B3 omnidirectional lavalier from Countryman Associates for work that can be positively brutal on the microphones. During the course of his… View this post

    Here’s something I’ve seen in at least three churches over the last several months, so I know it happens. Let’s suppose there’s a standard 100-foot audio snake from the console position running to the stage. But instead of putting the amp rack on the stage, maybe the facility is using a powered mixer at front of house, or the amp rack is already sitting next to the mixer. A look over at the audio snake shows XLR inputs from the… View this post

    So, you’ve done your scan, frequency coordination, antenna placement, walk-around and war-gaming tests, and everything works. All of your wireless transmitters are resting comfortably in their metal trays, the batteries are good and line check has verified that all of your units are sending audio where they’re supposed to. What else can go wrong? Well, for one, a presenter or performer can end up with the wrong transmitter in his/her hand at a critical moment. Wireless microphones, being, well, wireless,… View this post
