    Marko Hunt is closing in on four decades behind the mixing console, and he has spent the last thirty-two of them with The Oak Ridge Boys – first at monitors and then later at FOH. Before securing that enduring gig, Hunt cut his teeth touring with the Little River Band in its heyday. He also spent several years touring with Johnny Cash.

    The Sennheiser Technology & Innovation lab in California has created a new concept microphone designed to explore new tools for drum capture. At its core, the Element system offers the ability to detect when an individual drum has been physically hit. This allows the engineer to carefully craft the sound of the drum set with less bleeding and tighter control over tone and dynamics. As with previous concept mics, this prototype is aimed at sharing new ideas with our users… View this post

    The crowd waits impatiently for the lights to come up, to hear a single voice rise in song, riding above the instruments. The vocal microphone in the singer’s hand, reinforced by the rest of the signal chain, carries a voice to thousands of eager listeners that would scarcely reach the first rows unaided.  Of course, mics have reinforced vocals for many decades, and by allowing singers to be heard, they’ve played an integral role in the rise of the popular… View this post

    WFMT Chicago is a unique radio station that is dedicated to classical music and fine arts programming, yet operates on a commercial basis. “We’re sort of a hybrid radio station, commercially licensed and owned by a not-for profit. What sets us apart from any other station in the country is the amount of live remote broadcasts that we do,” says WFMT Director of Operations Don Mueller. “We had 30 live broadcasts from different venues across the city in April alone.”… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   It happens to all of us; we put a mic in a boom stand, set it to the right height, tighten the clutch and set off to the next task. When we turn around and look, the mic drooped down toward the floor like a limp noodle. We head back, tighten the clutch some more, only to find the mic will not stay put. I have been so frustrated by this phenomenon that… View this post
