    For more than two decades each Holiday Season, Willow Park Church has staged their Living Nativity. For this year’s 21st annual endeavor, they pulled out all the stops: music, dance, and ancient history came together to tell a Christmas story that was unparalleled. Audio quality was crucial to the Living Nativity’s success and, to ensure the highest level of vocal reproduction, the show relied on multiple Countryman E6 Omni Earset microphones. Chris Neufeld serves as Technical Director at Willow Park… View this post

    Cables present plenty of problems in audio systems, and it’s something Dave Rat and the gang at Rat Sound have been addressing with a growing line of SoundTools products. I recently received several units to check out, including the XLR Sniffer/Sender, the NL-4 Sniffer/Sender, the 1/4” Sniffer/Sender, and the Mic Swapper. The sniffer/senders are cable testers, but unlike many devices of their type, they can be used to check cables/snake channels when they’re in place at a show or installed… View this post

    TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new M82 dynamic cardioid microphone at the upcoming Winter NAMM 2013 in Anaheim (booth 1868).  Following the same design approach as TELEFUNKEN’s other Dynamic Series microphones, the new M82 was created to provide an alternative to familiar kick drum large-diaphragm dynamic microphones.  Hand-assembled and tested in the company facility in Connecticut, the M82 includes a large 35mm diaphragm with superb low frequency capabilities.  The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   There are as many ways to mic an acoustic guitar as there are engineers in the world. I want to show you why you should consider stereo-miking acoustic guitars (that is, using two microphones on the guitar instead of just one), and then offer reasons not to do it. A lot of engineers will throw a single mic on an acoustic guitar, point it at the 12th fret, and hit record.… View this post
