    Noted trance group Above & Beyond embarked on a world tour with an Allen & Heath dLive mixing system for monitors, joined by ME personal monitoring systems. The dLive was requested by monitor engineer Tom Howat, who has toured with the likes of Paolo Nutini, Morrissey and Franz Ferdinand. “Above & Beyond’s tour is an acoustic reworking of the group’s popular hits, and involves 17 artists and 80 inputs on stage. The musical director describes the tour as ‘widescreen,’ and… View this post

    For the performing musician there are few things worse than bad sound. If the mix is bad in the PA the audience can’t hear the music, and if it’s bad in the monitors it makes it difficult to play together effectively. Whatever level artists are at in the music industry, they spend valuable time, effort and money preparing for those precious minutes on stage but all of those efforts can quickly be undone by subpar sound engineering. It’s no coincidence… View this post

    Karrie Keyes enjoyed a unique view of the 1980s-90s punk rock scene as well as the rise and evolution Pearl Jam, one of the more popular groups of the past 20-plus years. In fact, I recently caught up with the noted monitor engineer during a break on the band’s current tour, which finishes up later this month with dates at Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago. Keyes’ career also includes live mix work with RHCP, Fugazi, Sonic… View this post

    64 Audio has introduced apex in-ear monitoring technology, as well as tia, a tubeless in-ear system. apex stands for “air pressure exchange,” incorporating a pneumatically interactive vent designed to relieve pneumatic pressure (air pressure) caused by miniature loudspeakers placed in a sealed ear canal. By reducing the pressure, sound quality is enhanced and a wider stereo image is created. In addition, instrument separation is more distinguishable. The technology is available in the apex-m20 module, specifically designed to fit the proprietary… View this post

    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
