    Adika Pongo is a seven-piece ensemble has a loyal following and a busy calendar of dates across metro Rome and beyond, blending three-part harmonies with bass, drums, keys, guitar, percussion, sax, and Electronic Wind Instrument to create a unique modern twist on classic 1970s disco and more. The band recently added a Mackie DL32R 32-channel mixer with iPad control to their arsenal, primarily to use as an onstage monitor mixer. “All seven of us use in-ear monitors - we have… View this post

    Yes, I know. When I first saw TouchMix at NAMM two years ago, I thought it was a toy, but while I was at Summer NAMM’s new TEC Tracks, across the aisle QSC was presenting “the world’s most powerful and portable easy-to-use compact digital mixer” with hourly live performances. TouchMix is well into its second year and second software revision, so I knew it was stable. Greg Mackie and Peter Watts consulted with QSC to design this unique little mixer,… View this post

    Increasing numbers of students at the audio engineering branch of Oxygen College have resulted in the commission of a brand new, larger studio where a 36 channel Audient ASP8024 mixing console with Dual Layer Control (DLC) and patchbay now takes center stage. Newly opened in May, this latest addition to the Geelong West music facility is in the care of head of audio Tom Isaac, who explains, “It is used predominantly by our Advanced Diploma of Sound Production students.” He… View this post

    It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and nowhere is this more applicable than when trying to teach complex concepts. A graphical depiction can often convey an idea better, and quicker, than a whole bunch of words. This is because our brains are mainly image processors, not word processors; the part of our brain that processes words is actually very small in comparison to the part that processes visual information. Therefore visual cues help us to… View this post

    When a new piece of gear is specified for a theatre install, a variety of technical issues and requirements naturally influence the purchase decision. However, sometimes the final deciding factor ultimately comes down to a manufacturer’s people. That was very much the case when New Market, Maryland-based Acme Professional recently installed a DiGiCo SD9 at Shenandoah University’s Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre in Winchester, Virginia. While the university has a noteworthy traditional music and recording program and the venue is used for everything… View this post

    The first “big” mixing consoles I owned were a 12-channel Kelsey and a 16-channel Yamaha PM1000. The Kelsey saw the most use because the PM1000 weighed in at 110 pounds, and that was without the wooden case I built for it. With a limited number of channels, buses and features available, I learned to be quite frugal when deciding what to mike onstage. For larger shows, the Kelsey sometimes served as a sub mixer for the drums and bass, feeding… View this post

    All Mobile Video (AMV) provides end-to-end video and audio solutions for broadcast, entertainment, programming and events by adopting the latest technologies for its Manhattan and Los Angeles studios and nationwide fleet of mobile production trucks.

    Sound Devices will feature its 688 12-track portable mixer/recorder with the new SL-6 powering and wireless system at IBC 2015 (Hall 8, Stand B59). By pairing these products together, users can streamline and de-clutter any audio bag, creating the ability to control and monitor an entire audio system in one wireless location. Launched earlier this year, the 688 is the newest member of the 6-Series family of mixer/recorders and incorporates a multi-channel mixer, recorder, and MixAssist auto-mixing technology. To simplify… View this post

    Recording and live sound engineer Dan Kury refers to himself as an old school engineer, having logged more than 40 years mixing and recording a wide variety of musical genres in all sorts of venues while hauling around big consoles, outboard racks and huge audio snakes. When he discovered the Mackie DL1608 16-channel digital mixer, he was a happy man. “The DL1608 is the first piece of equipment that changed my life,” Kury begins. “The equipment, the labor, the time… View this post
