    R&B diva Mariah Carey recently packed “A-level” arenas across Europe with a Meyer Sound LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system. The system clearly delivered Carey’s five-octave range and soaring, melismatic vocal style to every seat without the use of delays. Mixed by front of house engineer Lorin White Jr., the 22-city “Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour” was Carey’s first European tour in 13 years. “The LEO system is superb for handling Mariah’s voice, particularly when I’m tracking her extended high notes,”… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Jay Last weekend I refused to let a band roadie (did the setup but didn’t mix or anything) use their own stage drops at the front of the stage. One of the drops I did approve was a Hubbell 4-plex with the low profile plastic box. One I rejected was the same but broken and held… View this post

Truck and van deal…did I mention that I also drove the truck? On this particular night, pre record deal, we were part of the way through a week-long gig at a Toronto bar… View this post

Over the past few months, Milwaukee-based SR provider Clearwing Productions has been using the compact desk to mix sound for the three candidates’ rallies and other political events throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Indiana. According to Clearwing’s Bryan Baumgardner, the S21’s onboard processing has eliminated… View this post
