    Living in South Central Texas, we operate in a very diverse ethnic atmosphere and encounter every description of strange and unusual instrument. Over time, we (and our engineers) have discovered some techniques that work well for some of these applications. There may be other, possibly better ways to accomplish the task. But the following represent tried and true methods that work for us, as well as the musicians we support. Accordion. What do you call 100 accordions in the Rio… View this post

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   Most musicians really don’t want to learn about electrical engineering, or even how basic electricity works. Everyone, however, should learn how to test for and avoid electric shocks on stage. Guitar amps and mixing boards as wired from the factory are inherently safe, but they can become silent-but-deadly killers if plugged into an extension cord or wall outlet that’s improperly grounded. This is because guitars are held in moist hands while wet lips… View this post

    It may not seem so at first blush, but there are a few concepts as pervasive in live audio as the concept of impedance. It’s relevant to microphones, direct boxes (DIs), preamps, processors, amplifiers, loudspeakers, equalizers, crossover filters, and even the cables that connect them all together. In this article we’ll explore the principles of impedance, and examine how these concepts apply directly to our work in the field. Ohm Sweet Ohm In order to understand impedance, we need to… View this post
