    The current tour by Barry Manilow—his first U.S. tour of the decade—has front of house engineer Ken Newman providing the mix with a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console. “In mixing this show, I have to make it sound exactly the way Barry wants it to,” explains Newman, who is also owner of Newman Audio, Inc. “While some artists leave the sound to their engineers, Barry is very involved in rehearsal and sound check and will sit right next to me and… View this post

    When members of Dire Straits got back together for a one-off charity event at the Albert Hall, sound engineer Matthew Manasse was asked to look after the front of house mix. The incredible response to the event led to repeated demands for the band to play again—and so ‘The Straits’ took to the road. This culminated in a full European tour recently that saw Matthew Manasse mixing the shows on a Soundcraft Vi1. Having toured with some of the biggest… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Christine Lavin recently sent in the following question: “Where do headphones fit in the mix for you, or do you listen just to the speakers? I’ve been in studios where they have 3 sets of speakers—small medium and large—and the producer or mixer (if it’s someone else) listen on all three. But I’m a headphone person. Wonder what your opinion of that is?” I’m a firm believer that you can get great… View this post

    A number of years ago, a guy ostensibly working in “professional audio” told me that the reason he mixed the events he did (they were generally smaller local events) was so he could turn up the bass as loud as he could and/or as loud as was possible.  Personally, I’m glad I didn’t attend any of these events. It’s not that I don’t like bass, it’s more that he was more concerned about how it sounded to him rather that… View this post

    The latest release of software for Studer Vista digital consoles brings 30-band graphic EQ functionality to all channels on the desk, whether they are inputs, buses or outputs, in addition to the existing full 4-band parametric equalisation. Assignment and selection of the graphic EQ is via the Vistonics touch screen, and the control of the frequency bands is then placed on the channel faders, or via the rotary controls in the Vistonics section. On Vista 9 consoles, the FaderGlow illuminates… View this post

    Currently ranked first in the country by audience share, STB, one of the Ukraine’s most popular television stations, needed a digital console that would withstand the rigors of moving around the country to regional heats of the Ukrainian version of Masterchef. “The console had to be a reliable workhorse, able to work while constantly travelling - sometimes in hostile environments. As far as we were concerned, DiGiCo has the best protection against dust and shock resistance. There was also an… View this post

    Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center, recently worked closely with Culture Club, a hip 1980s-themed New York City dance club, to supply state-of-the-art lighting and P.A. systems as well as other gear. It moved from its original location downtown to its new club in Midtown Manhattan. Culture Club owners Robert Watman and Najib Succar turned to GC Pro for loudspeakers from JBL; amplifiers from Crown; mixing consoles from Soundcraft; lighting from Antari and Elation… View this post
