    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

    Avant garde cellist Rushad Eggleston, also known as the Ambassador of Sneth or the Cello Goblin is an entertainer unlike most cellists; strapping his instrument on and delivering high-energy vocals as he moves around the stage. That’s precisely why he depends on his ISOMAX Headset microphone from Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates. Eggleston was educated at Berklee College of Music and, while there, developed his ‘rootsy,’ energetic style of music that has since become his musical signature. In addition to… View this post

Needham’s passion for the creative process is reflected in his Los Angeles studio, The Ballroom, where a tantalizing mix of vintage and bleeding-edge gear reflects his… View this post
