Soulwax’s band members wanted to create a “20th Century” sound by incorporating several vintage Trident Fleximix consoles on stage for pre mixing.

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Sound waves vibrate up and down in repeating cycles while they bounce around. Besides having positive and negative phases (when the sound is going up or going down), the cycles have physical length needed for a complete cycle back to the starting point (“wavelength”). High-frequency sounds are made from rapidly moving sound waves that can complete a cycle in a short distance, while low frequency sounds are made from slowly moving sound waves… View this post

Therefore, we have created this site so… View this post

    For 20 years, the Coconut Groove Band (CGB) has performed a huge repertoire of well known songs, ranging from easy listening to soul, R&B, Americana, rock, and pop.

Now they are performing with the DL32R digital mixer from Mackie. “The old mixer was a workhorse,” recalls guitarist/vocalist Rick McClanahan, “and it had effects, but it was big and heavy. We use powered… View this post

The article talked about the routine problems normal people had using computers and how challenging it was for IT guys to help them. Not because the IT guys couldn’t solve the problem, but… View this post
