    With over four million tickets sold to concerts that have taken place in 35 countries, The Australian Pink Floyd Show has amazed millions of concertgoers with a replication of the classic UK band’s live show. Employing a collection of visual aids (including lasers, inflatables and 3D stereoscopic projection), the group’s live shows recreate the look, feel and sound of Pink Floyd’s later world tours. For over 120 shows this year, the touring ensemble has had DiGiCo SD consoles on tour… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   When it comes to discussing the fine art of mixing music, I tend to approach the subject with some trepidation. After all, compared to many of the topics I’ve written about, this one is rife with subjectivity — one person’s idea of a great sounding mix may be another’s sonic nightmare. And what works for one genre of music will be decidedly wrong for another. But all those variables aside, there are at least a… View this post

    Spire AVL of Carslile, PA has replaced an older digital mixer at the West Shore Church in Mechanicsburg with an Allen & Heath dLive S7000 Surface.  Spire AVL’s Seth Shoemaker explained the upgrade. “The church’s previous mixer had experienced technical difficulties and added nearly 25msec of latency in its processing,” he said.  “We recommended the dLive because we knew it was a reliable mixer with very low latency and the drag-and-drop touch screens would simplify setups. We also provided fourteen… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Mastering done well will prepare mixes to sound good on any variety of playback systems. Planning on having your music played on the radio? Mastering will also prepare your music for air. Sadly, the majority of mastering sessions I do are of files that are delivered in the wrong format. The mastering engineer can’t be expected to work miracles. Remember, garbage in = garbage out. Songs improperly handled in the mix process can prevent the… View this post
