    Special Event Services (SES) of Winston-Salem, NC recently purchased a new Yamaha PM10 Digital Audio Console and immediately put it out on tour with monitor engineer David Baker for Lynyrd Skynyrd. “After having owned many of the original PM1Ds, we were eagerly awaiting its successor, states vice president/co-owner/head of audio, Jason Farah. The Yamaha PM1D was such a reliable platform, there was no question we’d add the PM10 to our inventory.” Farah said SES still owns and uses Yamaha digital… View this post

    One of the most commonly asked questions in audio is “What microphone can I use that doesn’t cause feedback?” The answer: no such microphone exists. Feedback results from a combination of many factors, including loudspeaker placement, microphone placement, and the frequency response of both devices and room acoustics. It’s a complicated process. Entire books have been written on the subject and the mathematical formulas that model feedback are quite involved. So let’s summarize the problem. What is it? Feedback is… View this post

That is exactly what James Shaw has found on his current Rat Sound-reinforced tour with Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals connecting a pair of DiGiCo consoles while sharing mic pres and using the manufacturer’s Gain Tracking feature.… View this post

    For a three-piece band, Chvrches (pronounced as “churches”) makes a lot of noise. Rather than depend primarily on playback to present its heavily layered synthpop-style music, the Glasgow, Scotland-based band – Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, synthesizers, samplers), Iain Cook (synths, guitar, bass, vocals) and Martin Doherty (synths, samplers, vocals) – focuses on generating as much of it live as possible. In fact, both on stage and in studio, Chvrches is all about that “live” feel, which loosely defined is the… View this post
