    Like most live sound veterans, front of house engineer Chris Madden has driven the mix for a wide and diverse range of artists over the years, with a genre-transcending resume that includes Pink, Joe Cocker, The Waterboys, Sugababes, The La’s, and Gabrielle. These days, he’s driving an Avid VENUE D-Show System on Sade’s world tour. A longtime analog aficionado, Madden is among many engineers who have embraced the VENUE live sound environment. “I was introduced to VENUE around 2005 by… View this post

    in-ear monitors
    Gary Zandstra 08/30/11 03:10 PM, 2 Comments
    If you read my writing with any regularity, you’ve probably noticed that in ear monitors (IEM) have been a recent hot topic.  I like them - no, I love them! But only when they’re used on the right person, in the right venue, and in the proper way. This past weekend I was at a conference that hit almost every one of these points, yet I found the IEMs to actually be a nuissance. The event featured a very good… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I’ve never told the musicians why I walk out on them.  Even if I did, I don’t know if they’d believe me.  They aren’t around, so I’ll tell you.  I do it because of Harvey Fletcher and Wilden A. Munson. Harvey and Wilden were navigating through the Amazon rainforest in 1937 when they stumbled upon a one-of-a-kind find.  Hidden behind a thicket of brush and guarded by snakes (“why did it… View this post

    The recently opened Cendera Center is a multipurpose facility designed to accommodate a wide range of functions, including fine arts performances, meetings, training sessions / presentations, boxing events, parties, and more. With such a varied agenda, selecting a sound reinforcement system capable of providing pristine music reproduction characteristics as well as a high level of speech intelligibility was a paramount issue during the venue’s planning stages. After evaluating a variety of systems, the consultants and client agreed on Valencia, Spain-based… View this post

    This list of “effective habits” is distilled down from a much larger list as being the most important – based on my experience these 15 or so years in the business. How these relate to you will depend of course on exactly what kind of work you are doing, but in general, they apply across the board, so to speak. You probably have your own list but because you are reading this article, it points to the fact that you’re… View this post

    Held in the 3,500-seat Christ’s Chapel, the twice-weekly student chapel services are the heartbeat of spiritual life at Oral Roberts University (ORU) in Tulsa, OK. After years of struggling with mediocre audio, a recent upgrade to Meyer Sound MICA line arrays has brought a revival of musical impact—and spoken word clarity—to chapel services as well as other events in the chapel. “I sang through the old system for almost a year, and I can tell you it was time for… View this post

    While the skies now shine bright over my home state of Indiana, less than a month ago it was particularly harrowing to use Pro Audio equipment in the Midwest. Why? Well, we were constantly plagued with blizzards and freezing rain, which had a fairly devastating effect on the local power grid. Though I never completely lost power this winter, it did often waver intermittently for hours. Thankfully, when I setup my studio, I invested in several Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   This week I had the privilege of interviewing Brent Milligan for my VIP members. He’s a professional producer/musician here in Nashville. Over the course of 45 minutes, Brent said so many things that I thought were just fantastic. I told him we could do a separate interview on EACH of those topics, there was so much good information. Towards the end of the interview, I asked Brent if he had any… View this post
