    More than a decade has passed since Fr. Michael Froidurot and the planning committee at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Poway, CA, set in motion their vision for a new worship space. Recently, the church unveiled their long-awaited new sanctuary to applause from the congregation and accolades from the surrounding south Poway community. Designed in traditional cruciform style by design-build contractor T. B. Penick & Sons, Inc. and architects Hyndman & Hyndman, the church’s patience and planning are clearly evident… View this post

    In an exclusive interview with CE Pro, Alan Parsons, renowned sound engineer for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and for the Beatles, says hi-fi pros focus too much on equipment and brand names, when they should put more energy into room acoustics. He also says some surround-sound systems from Costco and Walmart “really aren’t that bad.” All this from the audio wizard behind Dark Side of the Moon, and the name sake of the Alan Parson’s Project? Parsons… View this post

    Rational Acoustics has introduced a new version of its phantom powered pink noise generator. Called the Noise Stick II, it offers a 25 dB increase in sensitivity from a device that is the same size as the original, and also has new, blue LED on the endcap that provides visual confirmation that the unit is seeing phantom power and thus, operational. The Noise Stick II is hand-built in the USA exclusively for Rational Acoustics, outfitted with hand-matched transistors and 1-percent… View this post

    The recent two-day ADAC Supercross motorcycle competition at the Westfalenhallen exhibition centre in Dortmund, Germany offered 360-degree sound reinforcement handled by a system headed by D.A.S. Audio line arrays. The live event was broadcast onto huge LED screens hung in the center of the venue to bring the experience and performance of the leading drivers even closer to the more than 9,000 spectators each day. Music clips, advertisements, statements, progress reports, greetings, and awards ceremonies were recorded and broadcast to… View this post

    Middle Atlantic Products is introducing the new HRF Series Half Rack family of products that will also serve to help develop an ECIA standard for the half-width rack format. The new HRF Series half racks–which incorporate the dimensions of the proposed standard–feature a low profile design and compact dimensions. An offset cable tie area keeps their overall width to a slim 10 5/8-inch, which makes them an important off-the-shelf solution for maximizing the amount of usable rack space in confined… View this post

    In the early 1990s we were the kings of grunge, based in Seattle. We were the capital of music at the time, and we had a ton of wedges. Literally, a ton or more, as our company had over 100 of them. A few hours down the road in Oregon, we heard tales of a well established rock band using custom-fitted “headphones” that went inside the ear, like a hearing aid. At the time I remember saying, “that’s the dumbest… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Once upon a time, Joe made a stupid mistake. I was recording a bunch of acoustic guitar tracks for an album project. I was super-excited. I had set aside an entire afternoon to knock out all the songs. Also, I had just gotten a brand new microphone, and was going to use it along with another mic to record the guitar in stereo. All was right with the world. I set… View this post

    This article is provided by How-To ASSIST Technical Training.   If terms such as gain structure, impedance matching and headroom are unfamiliar, or worse, give you a headache, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Most church sound techs would rather have their gear work perfectly right out of the box than have to tweak it into compliance. Nevertheless, when it comes to setting up and operating a sound system, a working knowledge of gain structure (and a few related concepts) will… View this post
