    Martin Audio’s MLA (Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array) PA system recently enjoyed its busiest weekend of the year with two simultaneous large-scale events in London on either side of the capital. While rental/production company Capital Sound was fielding 170 enclosures at the perennial Proms in the Park (Hyde Park), over in the east at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Prince Harry inspired Jaguar Land Rover Invictus Games Closing Concert also featured an MLA system. The five-hour extravaganza combined a celebration of… View this post

    Justin Pommer is no stranger to the recording studio. After starting out as a drummer close to 20 years ago, Pommer began engineering in what he calls “mini-studios,” and over the past two decades in commercial facilities and various studios of his own, he learned his way around the mixing board, honing his sound and craft and ultimately moving into producing. Over those years, Pommer has recorded numerous artists that range from Tower Of Power to Tom Petty, and he… View this post

    In 2012, Wisseloord Studios reopened in a large media complex area outside of Amsterdam as a state-of-the-art recording and mixing facility. Among the many upgrades made to the studios, one was to add an Aviom A360 personal mixing system with the help of Aviom Benelux distributor, Amptec. The studios originally opened in 1978 when accomplished recording and mix engineer Ronald Prent was an assistant. He recently returned to the studios as a partner and set about getting the funding to… View this post

    IsoAcoustics has introduced Arista, an aluminum acoustic isolation stand for studio monitors and bookshelf loudspeakers. It will be on display at the upcoming AES convention in Los Angeles at booth 1651. Arista stands utilize the company’s patented “floating design” and have a unique integrated tilt adjustment that enables the user to dial-in the optimum tilt angle.  With an overall size of 6 inches (w) x 7.5 inches(d), the stand is designed for medium-size studio monitors and loudspeakers weighing up to… View this post

    Neumann is expanding the successful KH line with its first midfield monitor – the KH 420. The active 3-way system (10-inch + 3-inch + 1-inch) is ideal for larger 5.1 and 7.1 configurations and listening distances of up to 11 meters. With a corner frequency of 52 Hz, the KH 120 nearfield monitor set new standards in its class for low frequency performance. Neumann engineers have succeeded in raising the bar with the KH 420 too. Its 26 Hz corner… View this post

      1) Both Ears Or None. Using only one ear encourages much higher sound levels. Good custom molds provide 20 to 25 dB of isolation, allowing lower monitoring levels for artists, and reduced stage noise to compete with front of house. Mixed mode monitoring combining wedges and personal monitors ultimately results in higher overall SPL. 2) Hard-Wired Equals Hi-Def. Wired personal monitors will always sound better than wireless. In addition to loss of stereo separation and frequency response, multiplexed stereo… View this post
