    signal levels
    Peter Janis 04/10/14 03:06 PM,
    Today’s live stage productions have become tremendously complex. All sorts of different instruments and electronic sources must be “orchestrated” along side the microphones and signals that need to be split off to a multitude of mixers to feed the house system, stage monitors, in-ear monitors, broadcast truck, Internet uplink and recording system. Paramount to the design is trying to insure some form of simplicity or standardization that will allow quick changes should disaster occur. In fact, even with today’s most… View this post

    If one could listen to only the direct sound of a loudspeaker, the world would be a very different place! Unfortunately, free field listening, where you have no reflections, room modes or ambient noise, is hard to achieve in everyday life, so we listen to loudspeakers in real rooms. The interaction of a loudspeaker system and a room can be very complex to understand, model or measure! One way to measure this interaction is to measure the impulse response of… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’m currently in the process of building a home studio and just at the point of wiring all of the raw cable to patch bays. However, I’m a bit stuck because I’m not sure what patch bays to get. Is one “style” of patch bay better/more durable than another? I guess the same question goes for the patch cables themselves. A: Wow, is this ever a loaded question. Because the industry can’t come to a… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Have you ever believed that there’s just something badass engineers do that the rest of the world isn’t privy to? Are you disappointed when everyone on forums seems to agree that engineers are just using really good judgment and generally using basic processing? Well, don’t get your hopes up too much. 95 percent of a great mix stems from great decision making and the use of basic processing that everyone… View this post

  • line arrays
    Jeff Berryman 04/09/14 01:57 PM,
    This is a discussion of line array high-frequency output capability, and what it might mean to you. The specific quantity we’re looking at is the frequency response at maximum output power for all drivers. This is the maximum acoustic output of the array as a function of frequency. I will call it the power-bandwidth response. Here’s a question: what power bandwidth must line array elements have in order to deliver a flat frequency response to audience seats? Because of the… View this post

    In a company news release, Sennheiser notes that it has launched a website to keep customers informed on recent developments concerning the future of wireless microphones and the UHF spectrum. The website—http://sennheiser.com/spectrum—also contains a sample support letter that wireless microphone owners can download and use to express their own views to the FCC concerning equipment replacement costs they will incur as a result of spectrum reallocation. In the middle of 2015, the FCC plans to hold an “incentive auction” with… View this post

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Have you ever mixed a song and really struggled to make the vocals cut through? The typical tricks involve equalizing out some lows or boost some highs, but that doesn’t always work. Plus, sometimes all that EQ leave the original vocal feeloing flat and lifeless. Another option is to really squeze the track with compression, but even still sometime that doesn’t have the desired effect, and even worse, there are times when the… View this post

    The prestigious London National Theatre recently added an Earthworks PM40 PianoMic for the musical “The Light Princess.” Ed Furguson, sound manager for the National Theatre and associate sound designer for the musical, working in conjuction with Simon Baker,  purchased the PM40 after extensive tests. The musical, written by singer-songwriter Tori Amos and playwright Samuel Adamson, is centered around a grand piano, and in fact Amos’ personal grand piano was used for the production. The PM40 is quick and easy to… View this post
