      The most common reference distance for loudspeaker SPL specifications is 1 meter (3.28 feet). The choice is one of convenience – any distance will do. The 1 m reference simplifies distance attenuation calculations by eliminating the division required in the first step:   Loudspeakers must be measured at a distance beyond which the shape of the radiation balloon remains unchanged. The changes are caused by path length differences to different points on the surface of the device. These differences… View this post

    Though producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Zedd only began producing electronic music in 2009, his music quickly became a defining sound of contemporary electronic pop thanks to 2012’s “Clarity” and 2015’s “I Want You to Know.” Having long used Antelope Audio clocking and conversion in his work, Zedd and his engineer had no trouble deciding on the Orion Studio when they decamped their operation to Zedd’s home. Since the studio’s completion, Antelope Audio’s single-rack-space USB+Thunderbolt interface has delivered everything Zedd needs… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   In most churches, front of house audio (FOH) is the most difficult tech job. It’s every bit as visible as song words (or presentation as we call it), and far more difficult to master. As the church get bigger, the band typically does as well, which makes the job that much tougher. Finding volunteers who are willing to take the time to learn how to mix FOH can be challenging; I suspect most… View this post

    Over 600 d&b audiotechnik loudspeakers, nearly 150 D80 amplifiers, and twenty nine delay towers for one stage; this was an event on an almost unprecedented scale.

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Let me start off by saying that I am not a vocal producer. I am an engineer that has worked with tons of vocalists and producers. Given this, I have a good understanding of how to layer vocals. Unfortunately, there is no one idea that will work for vocals as a whole. With so many different styles and genres of music, my attempt is to spark ideas only. One thing I do know for certain,… View this post
