    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Do you ask the right questions when evaluating your music mix?  Find out the questions you need to ask and when you must ask them during your mixing process. You need to evaluate your mix throughout the mix-building process.  This isn’t to say you aren’t doing that as a natural part of the process.  There is a time, however, when it’s good to take your hands off the mixer and listen. … View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Before I get started I just want to reinforce something – sometimes a reduction in parameters actually generates more creativity. Being aware of a set of limitations, or guidelines, can actually allow you much more creative control over your final mix. This could mean limiting the amount of effects that you allow yourself to use, or a more obvious one is to only use a particular set of effects that… View this post

    Modern worship doesn’t always call for a choir, but there are still many worship services where a choir is involved.  Choirs used to be the staple of the worship experience in most churches—I grew up in a church where they were located in the “choir loft” for the whole service, singing all of the hymns with the rest of us as well as doing a special number or two themselves. This choir consisted of 40-50 members, accompanied by acoustic piano,… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   What would you do if more and more people started complaining about the volume?  Would you consider it a congregational movement to kick you out of the sound booth?  Would you take it personally?  Would you consider it might be a result of an evolving congregation? Reading through my email this week, I found a letter from a congregation member regarding the sound level at their church.  Quite surprised that it… View this post

    When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, Derek W. Pardoe’s personal studio located on the Gulf Coast was one of the casualties. He recently completed reconstruction of the space and took delivery of an Audient ASP4816 compact analogue recording console as the centerpiece of the studio. “There are no options in this price range that have this much functionality and quality,” Pardoe explains. “It has the functionality of a large format desk with a smaller footprint and I love it.”  Pardoe… View this post

    Zeehi has declared independence for digital mixing console users in announcing Wednesday, July 4, as the go-live date for the CueCast console file conversion service that provides the ability to quickly and easily convert “show files” that contain user settings between different digital audio mixing console formats. “We’re calling this Fourth of July ‘Show File Independence Day,’” notes Danny Abelson, co-founder of Zeehi. “For the first time ever, operators of digital audio mixing consoles can transfer their user settings between… View this post

    Election cycles are getting longer and longer and more campaigns are on the road for extended periods of time while cable and Internet news outlets hunger for content to fill their 24-hour news formats. This has resulted in an increased demand to sound companies and AV rental houses for providing press conference feeds. If you do not have at least one press mult in your inventory, you may be missing out on increased revenue opportunities. At a minimum, you need… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I couldn’t believe my eyes!  The sound check was over and the sound guy had all the volume faders set at zero and all the EQ pots set at the noon position.  Listening to the music during the service, it was obvious there was no depth to the mix. That was probably 20 years ago, but the memory has stuck with me. Mix depth is the mix arrangement of sounds in… View this post

    Swiss rental company Livesound B-AG has added a Soundcraft Vi1 digital console to its hire fleet, which already includes a larger Vi4 and several Soundcraft analog mixing desks. Based outside Berne, it was the need for a monitor desk to mix the reference sound for leading Swiss rock band, Patent Ochsner that drove the latest acquisition. Livesound B-AG are a long-term customer of Soundcraft—and of its Swiss distributor, Dr. W.A. Guenther Distribution, who over the past two decades has kept… View this post
