    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Remote recording is exhilarating. Musicians, excited by the audience, often put on a stellar performance. Usually you only get one chance to get it recorded, and it must be done right. It’s on the edge, but by the end of the night, especially if everything has gone as planned – what a great feeling! Challenges abound. Monitors can feed back and/or leak into the vocal microphones, coloring the sound. Bass sound can… View this post

    Today’s live stage productions have become tremendously complex. All sorts of different instruments and electronic sources must be “orchestrated” along side the microphones and signals that need to be split off to a multitude of mixers to feed the house system, stage monitors, in-ear monitors, broadcast truck, Internet uplink and recording system. Paramount to the design is trying to insure some form of simplicity or standardization that will allow quick changes should disaster occur. In fact, even with today’s most… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Lusting after large diaphragm condenser (LDC) microphones has become a national pastime. Newbies devour the recording magazines and read about this artist and that artist recording to vintage U-47’s or Tele 251’s and believe that they need those same mics, (or too often a design copy from China) to get a “hit” record. However, the acoustic conditions that exist in the average home studio or even small pro studio do not lend themselves to the… View this post

    When Grease: Live, a television adaptation of the 1971 musical Grease, aired on FOX, audio supervisor/designer Bruce Arledge knew that DPA Microphones would provide the perfect audio support for the multitude of actors on set. Brought on by producer Greg Sills and production mixer Mark King, Arledge was confident that the DPA mics would catch every syllable, both spoken and sung. Shooting on four stages at Warner Bros. Studios and outfitting multiple performers, Arledge needed microphones that would complement the… View this post

    The input list and stage plot is the audio core of any technical rider and the road map for organizing stage equipment and console inputs. Accurate advance information allows risers and backline to be placed, microphones and wedges cabled, and even a line check when the touring crew’s travel is delayed. Working for clubs, festivals or sound companies, we’re often frustrated by inaccurate paperwork reflecting a version of a band that’s months or years old. The reason for out-of-date paperwork… View this post

For Sennheiser, being part of such a prestigious, high production value tour fits perfectly with its ethos of providing solutions that continually… View this post
