    The term optimization stems from the French word optimisme, meaning “the greatest good” or “the best.” Historically, the sound reinforcement industry has employed the term in the context of sound system tuning or alignment, but it was not until recently that the use of the term optimization has taken on a more literal and formalized meaning. It’s important to be familiar with the concept of numerical optimization (most simply, the determination of input values to obtain a function’s maximum or… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   About a year ago one of my publishers, Hal Leonard, asked me if I’d be interested in doing a phone app. If I was going to do one, I wanted it to be something that I would use myself, all the time, so I came up with the Delay Genie. The Delay Genie basically replaces those time delay charts that most studios used to have so you could easily set the reverb… View this post

    Lectrosonics has recently implemented several steps to minimize the company’s power consumption, lessening the impact of its environmental footprint. The replacement of lighting fixtures throughout both the corporate offices and manufacturing facilities is an important step toward the company’s goal of being more environmentally friendly. In the company’s manufacturing areas, forty-eight 400 watt metal-halide fixtures have been replaced with forty-eight 4-lamp 52 watt fluorescent fixtures. Additionally, the machine shop offices had new bulbs and electronic ballasts installed in their 32… View this post

    On more than one occasion, I’ve been called to a church to inspect the facility for the purpose of designing a new sound system. Upon arrival, I discover that the church has perfectly adequate audio components that have been tuned and balanced perfectly inadequately. It never fails - when I inform the owner that the system is fine and simply needs to be properly tuned, I get the response that the church has just paid somebody several hundred dollars to… 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

    Tannoy has introduced the VLS Series passive column array loudspeakers offering a balance of performance and cost, when active beam-steering may neither be required nor affordable. The VLS Series is the first Tannoy product to incorporate FAST (Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology), which delivers unique acoustic performance benefits. Central to this is its asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the acoustic coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. By the nature of a typical application, an “ideal” column loudspeaker should… View this post
