    church sound
    Jeff Lange 11/17/16 02:49 PM,
    The design of a new sound system for the sanctuary of The Pentecostals of the Fox Cities in Menasha, WI, was particularly challenging. This 500-seat auditorium has a 12-foot ceiling, dictating loudspeakers that are very compact in order to not detract from the room’s aesthetics. To meet this requirement, we chose premium two-way loudspeakers, with six of these cabinets flown in their horizontal cabinet position (with mid/high-frequency horns rotated), carefully placed in a distributed, decentralized arrangement. Largely due to compact… View this post

    The recent Live Sound International Loudspeaker Demo at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville during the annual Worship Facilities Expo (WFX) drew hundreds of audio professionals and church sound personnel over the course of its two-plus-day run. The demo, which launched six years ago at WFX in Dallas, delivers unique side-by-side listening opportunities to evaluate top line array and loudspeaker systems in a round-robin format. This year’s event kicked off with an evening slate of sessions for the regional pro… View this post

    Go to a concert these days and you’re likely to see line arrays flying left and right above the stage. For many applications, well-designed line array systems supplemented with electronic control are the best choice to provide the necessary SPL, directivity control, and uniformity of output – and to project consistent level and frequency response across large audiences. At the same time, the venerable 2-way loudspeaker, combining a cone driver with a high-frequency device through a directivity-shaping horn, has benefitted… View this post

    InfoComm 2016, the annual conference and exhibition for the professional audio-visual market held in June in Orlando, was attended by 38,833 visitors, 4.8 percent more than the last time the show was held in Las Vegas. A record 1,000 exhibitors, including 211 new exhibitors, filled the Las Vegas Convention Center June from June 8 through 10, occupying 527,105 net square feet of exhibit and special events space — also a show record. “This is a thriving, growing, busy industry —… View this post

    Not so long ago, consoles with 32 channels and 16 auxiliaries could cover the requirements of almost any band and most festivals, but today, bigger shows often require 100 channels and 50 mixes or more. At the same time, the genre of large-format consoles continues to grow and evolve. The recently introduced Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 and Avid VENUE | S6L, both highly anticipated, have now been released and are seeing steadily increasing action in a range of applications. Further, Allen… View this post

    The definition of which characteristics make a line array small- or large-format, is somewhat arbitrary. Is it how wide or high each element is, how much it weighs, how many components each houses, the diameter of the components, or how loud it gets? For this overview, we’ve based the selection on the size of the largest LF driver within the array, considering those with 8-inch to 10-inch cones to be medium-format. Even within the medium-format category, there’s a lot of… View this post

    Welcome to ProSoundWeb’s coverage of Prolight + Sound & Musikmesse 2016 in Germany at the sprawling Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre, which presents the latest products from the worlds of event technology and musical instruments. Preliminary figures show a reported count of more than 2,000 (2,043 to be exact) exhibitors from 60 countries on hand this year covering an exhibition facility which literally required shuttle buses to reach every vendor and display. Official attendance was almost 110,000 visitors (compared to… View this post

    loudspeakers
    PSW Staff 03/11/16 01:46 PM,
    Mention column loudspeakers to grumpy old soundmen and the Shure Vocalmaster immediately springs to mind, as every ’70s band used it. But column loudspeakers continue to gain in popularity because they offer a solution for those who need efficiency in the vocal range combined with even coverage and a very slim, unobtrusive profile. Line sources have been around for well more than a half-century. For portable sound applications, audiences tend to be small. Installed systems are often employed in reverberant… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Like many other aspects to mixing, the use of reverb is frequently either overlooked or misunderstood. Reverb is sometimes added to a track to create width and depth, but also to dress up an otherwise boring sound. The real secret is how much to use and how to adjust its various parameters. Let’s look at some of the reasons to add reverb in this excerpt from my book, The Audio Mixing Bootcamp.… View this post

    The textbook definition of a microphone is a transducer that converts acoustical energy (sound waves) into electrical energy. Basically, a sound wave hits a diaphragm or membrane and causes it to vibrate. These vibrations are turned into electricity and flow out to the console. Mics are usually categorized by the conversion process that’s used to turn acoustical energy into electricity. The most common type used on live stages are dynamic designs that work on the electromagnet principle where a coil… View this post
