    Hungarian dance group, Experidance, recently purchased two Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing systems to manage audio requirements for their national touring shows. Experidance’s repertoire includes musicals, live orchestral events and theatre productions, and the team was looking for an ultra-flexible digital mixing system to replace the incumbent front of house and monitor consoles. After evaluation, they selected two dLive systems, comprising S5000 and S7000 Surfaces, with DM32 and DM48 MixRacks. Experidance’s touring PA also includes an L-Acoustics Line Array… View this post

    Far from being just another event space, Community Courtyard has a history and aesthetic reaching back to 1850. It was then that a carriage works and livery stable laid its foundation in Plattsburg, Missouri. In the century that followed, the lovely brick building became a roller skate factory, a car dealership, and a cabinetry shop, but in the 1980s it fell into disrepair. Inspired by its beauty and cultural significance, a local non-profit raised the funds necessary to turn it… View this post

    For 20 years, the Coconut Groove Band (CGB) has performed a huge repertoire of well known songs, ranging from easy listening to soul, R&B, Americana, rock, and pop. Until recently, they relied on a 12-channel, analog, powered mixer, and to some extent it did the job. Now they are performing with the DL32R digital mixer from Mackie. “The old mixer was a workhorse,” recalls guitarist/vocalist Rick McClanahan, “and it had effects, but it was big and heavy. We use powered… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you’re looking for a prime example of what Toffler wrote about in Future Shock, look no further than analog tape. In little more than a decade, the two-inch multitrack tape machine has gone from studio staple to relic rarity. And while many audio veterans wax nostalgic for that warm analog sound, few will admit to missing the work that went with it. These days, owning an analog tape machine is somewhat akin to driving… View this post

    How do we teach aspiring audio professionals to mix? How important is teaching? Can some people even be taught? I’ve seen debates in the ProSoundWeb LAB forums as to whether mixing sound can/can’t be taught. There are a couple of interesting books I’ve read that relate to this idea. The first one is “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel Levitin. Levitin addresses the age-old question of talent versus work effort, and essentially concludes that the real deciding factor… View this post

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   Who is soundcheck for, anyway? Sounds like a silly question, at least until you start talking with the worship teams and tech crews at a lot of churches. Then the realization begins that in fact there are some different perspectives floating around out there.  From my perspective as an audio engineer, soundcheck is not the process of setting up the microphones or making sure that everything is working properly, and it’s not… View this post
