    When the cast album for the Broadway hit show “Motown The Musical” was ready to be made, the show’s producers called on multiple Grammy Award-winner Frank Filipetti to co-produce, record, edit and mix the album. In turn, Filipetti called on the new AT5040 cardioid condenser studio vocal microphone from Audio-Technica to capture the full range of one of America’s most iconic music eras and sounds. “Motown The Musical” officially opened earlier this year at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and features timeless… View this post

    Sennheiser has announced that it has recently filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in light of the pending spectrum auction scheduled to take place in 2014. The government auction, which jeopardizes the future use of wireless microphones and monitors operating in the 600 MHz range, will force many U.S. based content creators — including live production, broadcast, and film professionals — to attempt to stage their shows using little more than half of the currently available UHF spectrum.… View this post

    I find an increasing trend is occurring in the smaller church arena. The sound person is no longer just the sound person.
