    The Turbosound iNSPIRE iP2000 is a loudspeaker system comprised of modular, full-range column arrays and a companion 12-inch subwoofer. Each column array is comprised of 16 cone drivers plus a horn-loaded super-tweeter that can be easily mounted on the sub, locking to it and thus eliminating loudspeaker stands and cables. The iP2000 is outfitted with proprietary Klark Teknik SST (Spatial Sound Technology) for helping to create enhanced 3D acoustic environments as well as DSP presets for application type and loudspeaker… View this post

    Cables are the bane of our existence as sound technicians. Can’t live with ‘em, and can’t live without ‘em. On many gigs I can have upwards of 100 XLR cables, which get used for everything from stage microphones and DI boxes, to sending audio to active loudspeakers for monitors, FOH, and delays. But while running XLR cables to the loudspeakers is certainly the least expensive and possibly most robust solution, many times it’s too cumbersome and creates logistical nightmares. For… View this post

    The announcement of the new Audio-Technica BP40 large-diaphragm dynamic broadcast microphone last April didn’t really catch my attention. My first impression was “just another broadcast mic,” something I don’t have much need for. At least until recently… With a new podcast series on ProSoundWeb in motion, I’m considering a lot of gear that never hit my radar before. So when I finally saw this new mic in person at the recent AES show in New York, I was more curious.… View this post

    The new PreSonus Eris Series active studio monitors, designed for the budget-conscious studio seeking accurate and powerful reference monitors, make a strong first impression. The series incorporates a proprietary Midwoofer-Tweeter-Midwoofer (MTM, also known as “D’Appolito”) configuration, utilizing matched midrange drivers working together to create the effect of one much larger driver. The E44 is outfitted with two 4.5-inch, custom-woven Kevlar LF/midrange drivers, while the E66 uses 6.5-inch versions. Both models have a 1.25-inch, silk-dome HF driver centered between the mid/low… View this post

    It’s become a regular gig, opening boxes of toys and forming opinions for these reviews. Sometimes I’m impressed, sometimes not. Normally, I don’t have a problem keeping my cool and writing something moderately monotone. This might be different. For those who know the story, I have a pair of vintage Pioneer HPM-100 reference monitors from the 1970s in my office. These have been nicknamed “the lie detectors” because of how clean and accurate they are. No details escape them. So… View this post

    Yes, I know. When I first saw TouchMix at NAMM two years ago, I thought it was a toy, but while I was at Summer NAMM’s new TEC Tracks, across the aisle QSC was presenting “the world’s most powerful and portable easy-to-use compact digital mixer” with hourly live performances. TouchMix is well into its second year and second software revision, so I knew it was stable. Greg Mackie and Peter Watts consulted with QSC to design this unique little mixer,… View this post

    Out of the box, my first impression of the new Les Paul Reference Monitors from Gibson was that I didn’t even care what they sounded like. They’re absolutely gorgeous. My room received an instant aesthetic upgrade just by having them in there. The active (bi-amped), 2-way line offers 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch carbon woofer options, each joined by a 1-inch carbon-coated titanium tweeter in a front-ported, bass-reflex enclosure. The rear panel includes high- and low-frequency trim controls for tailoring, both… View this post

    The QSC TouchMix compact mixer series caught my attention from the moment it was introduced. The control surface is without physical faders – inputs and adjustments are accomplished via the large (6.1 x 3.5 inch) color TFT touch screen and rotary knob on the surface, or wirelessly via a tablet running the TouchMix app. And it’s been designed to meet the needs of both novice and experienced users. The company recently sent me the 16-channel model, appropriately named the TouchMix-16,… View this post

    A top touring company in the U.S. is currently evaluating TDA (Time Domain Analysis), the first of its kind loudspeaker analysis software that provides access to loudspeaker and sound reinforcement system parameters that have been unobtainable—until now. And we’ll soon be presenting the touring company’s report on this new tool here as a Road Test review. In the meantime, more about TDA software: Proprietary technology and new time domain analysis algorithms means that a sweep can be done in a… View this post
