    For many in pro audio, working with wireless systems is still thought to be a “nightmare” filled with peril, an accident waiting to happen, and so on. In actual fact, wireless systems are meant to work and in fact do work every day in thousands of concerts, theatrical productions, festivals, churches, broadcasts and the like, all around the world. With that in mind, I’ve compiled this list of troubleshooting steps to take when encountering wireless problems in the field. Hopefully… View this post

    Are effect tools or toys? The answer is, it depends. In the hands of a seasoned operator, time-based effects deepen the sonic landscape and present a clarified image of the proceedings. However, when wielded by a careless knob-jockey, effects tend to cheapen the sound and draw attention away from the message of the song.

But even after all this time, co-founder Matt Zimbel and his crew are not finished innovating. Their twelfth full-length effort, fittingly titled The Twelfth of Never, features the band’s nine principle players and a surround mix supported by Neumann. While a traditional stereo recording of the album was released at the end of September, an offhand discussion between Zimbel, who also works… View this post

    In 2015 RCF embarked on a mission to update and improve its SMA stage monitor range by introducing the TT25-CXA full range coaxial monitor. Now the company has gone a step further, introducing the active TT45-CXA, dual 10-inch two-way cabinet. “What differentiates the TT45-CXA is that it is a symmetrical cabinet, and extremely powerful, with two 10-inch woofers and 4-inch horn-loaded compression driver,” says the RCF engineering team. “We’ve lowered the crossover point to 600 Hz, providing superior voicing, transparent… View this post
