    The much-discussed auction of the 600 MHz frequency band is happening in the U.S., and it may well affect present wireless systems as well as related issues such as frequency planning/coordination. It’s important for everyone who works with creating the content that will stream on the mobile devices when the spectrum is cleared to understand the present situation and to be planning for the transition to different frequency bands.  Several leading pro audio wireless system manufacturers have taken the lead… View this post

    When Isaias G. Asbun, front of house engineer and director at Pyramid Sound, was in charge of the sound for Grammy-Award nominated Mexican singer Ana Gabriel’s tour titled “Por Ti,” he packed up his brand new DPA Microphones’ d:vote 4099 Rock Touring Kit to capture the band’s sound. “This was my first time using DPA microphones and I was blown away by the quality,” says Asbun. “I have always chosen my microphones very carefully, and when I tested the DPA… View this post

    Staged across the Italian city that bears its name, the Ravenna Festival ranks high among Europe’s most prestigious events. Adding another edge to its character, the 2016 event relied heavily on the use of RAVENNA IP networking for its audio operation. The Ravenna Festival hosts performing arts in venues including the Pala de Andrè indoor sports arena and Dante Alighieri theater – where a Lawo mc²36 mixing console, compact I/O Stagebox and RAVENNA formed the heart of a flexible network.… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Getting a little bored with the same old “tried-and-true” microphones and techniques? Let’s have some fun with fresh approaches that are off the beaten path. Vocals To create a differential (noise-canceling) mic, tape two identical omni mics together, one over the other, separated by a block of wood (Figure 1). Mix both mics at equal levels but with one mic switched in opposite polarity. Have the performer sing close to the top… View this post

    For better or for worse, cinematic representations of roadies tend to fall short of reality, and that seems to be the consensus of critics and actual roadies of Showtime’s comedy-drama Roadies, which debuted earlier this year. However, the show is getting high marks on its efforts for the authenticity of the environment they work in, and a DiGiCo SD9 console played a major role in that achievement. Marking a return to music-themed scripts by creator Cameron Crowe, whose 2000 film… View this post

    Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, located in Atlanta, Georgia, recently added new EAW Redline loudspeakers to the sanctuary. The church leaders, who are planning a complete sanctuary renovation in the next few years, were looking for an audio solution that would meet their immediate needs and could be re-purposed in the future. With that goal in mind, they contacted AEE Productions, also located in Atlanta, to assess the situation. “A high-quality, powerful, portable system like Redline provides powerful sound that doesn’t… View this post
