    With a requirement for subtle audio reinforcement to complement the venue’s natural acoustic, Wolkenturm’s head of sound Andreas Dröscher turned to TiMax for the panoramic realism created by its source-oriented reinforcement (SOR) spatial amplification techniques. The architecturally futuristic Wolkenturm´s open-air stage is akin to a modern giant sculpture, nestled in the landscaped park of Austria´s 700-year old Grafenegg Castle. The modern stage, designed by architects ‘the next ENTERprise’, blends perfectly with the romance of its surroundings and, built in a… View this post

      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

    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.
