    At the Prolight + Sound Show in Frankfurt, Martin Audio  has introduced the CDD-LIVE! Series of loudspeakers. Comprising three full-range models and two subwoofers, the CDD-LIVE! Series is designed for a wide range of professional stand-alone and distributed applications. The full-range models incorporate Martin Audio’s patented Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology. It combines the point source benefits of coaxial design with the consistent coverage of Differential Dispersion to project sound evenly front-to-back while exhibiting wide horizontal coverage closer to the loudspeaker.… View this post

    If you’ve ever been on a large gig where the primary sound system failed, even if just for a short period, you’ve probably sensed you’re at risk of being on the wrong side of an impending riot. Audiences get restless, to say the least. This is an extremely high-stress position to be in. If you’re the go-to technician expected to restore service, the rapidly elevating tension makes it tremendously difficult to troubleshoot the problem with each passing half-moment. It isn’t… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”—Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride The Twitterverse was hopping last night with news of Canadian singer Grimes being “electrocuted” during a concert in Dublin. (Go here and #Grimes on Twitter.) While she was shocked on stage, she definitely wasn’t electrocuted multiple times. That’s because the word “electrocution” refers to death by electric shock. If she was indeed killed by… View this post

    studio monitor
    PSW Staff 03/08/16 01:37 PM,
    Augspurger has introduced the Solo 12MF, a compact active studio monitor for tracking, mixing, and mastering. The free-standing loudspeaker employs a single 12-inch low/mid driver along with the smaller MF (Midfield) horn that was introduced with the Augspurger Duo 8 Mini-Main monitor, which was nominated for a TEC Award in 2015. Like the Duo 8, the Solo 12MF is designed to fit in smaller control rooms where a traditional soffited main system would not be possible. Power is provided by… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer. Guest Post from Duke DeJong   A frequent question I’m asked is, “what are the most important things I should look for in a piece of gear?” I have three answers to this question regardless of whether it’s audio, video, lighting, or any other gear. The first two are pretty obvious and related: What do I need a specific piece of gear to do both now and in the near future and… View this post

      For professional audio people, the word “power” usually conjures up visions of racks of amplifiers are used to drive the loudspeakers in a sound system. But the amplifier and other system components must have a stable power source from which to operate.  Thus the issue of power distribution, all the way from Hoover Dam to your sound system, is vital. Some of the principles of audio signal distribution in sound systems are borrowed directly from utility companies, and so… View this post

    I’ve been a professional audio engineer for 40-plus years and a musician for 10 years more than that, and during that time, I’ve witnessed hundreds of shock events on performance stages, recording studios, and even factory floors. A survey I ran on ProSoundWeb a few years ago revealed that 70 percent of the 3,000 musicians who responded had been shocked at least once on stage – some so severely that they were knocked unconscious. I’ve also witnessed dozens of ground-fault… View this post

    Editor’s Note: This is an excerpt from Audio Production and Critical Listening: Technical Ear Training, available from Focal Press. In the recording process, engineers regularly encounter technical issues that cause noises to be introduced or audio signals to be degraded inadvertently. To the careful listener, such events remove the illusion of transparent audio technology, revealing a recorded musical performance and reminding them that they are listening to a recording mediated by once invisible but now clearly apparent technology. It becomes… View this post

      Here’s a handy quiz for checking your knowledge about audio power. Rather than submit you to the typical “right or wrong” questions with exact numerical answers, I’ve elected to provide a different means of self-evaluation. I can tell you up front that the answer to every question is “It depends!” But what’s really being asked is “WHAT does it depend on?” At first glance it may seem that the question is not even related to audio. Don’t be fooled.… View this post
