    Very often the topic of “room tuning” comes up in the practice of pro audio, but what we’re really talking about is “system optimization.” And over the course of many years, we’ve used many tools that seemed to—or actually did—contribute to desirable results. But system optimization is not just about turning knobs (virtual or otherwise) until things sound good. Sure, you can do that, and maybe that’s all you have time for under certain circumstances, but it’s not likely to… View this post

    An early 20th century castle and museum of historic note, Casa Loma is also one of Toronto’s most popular sites for concerts and other social events. The favored event venue in warm-weather months is a glass-walled outdoor pavilion that was recently outfitted with a new distributed system of Meyer Sound IntelligentDC self-powered loudspeakers. “I was looking at Meyer Sound from the outset as nobody else offers a comparable solution,” says Wesley Thuro of Event Media Design, the exclusive AV provider… View this post

    The Abba Pater Church in Arecibo, Puerto Rico was recently relocated to a larger structure and underwent a complete retrofit that included a new sound system comprised of Martin Audio CDD loudspeakers and CSX subwoofers. Given the importance of the Abba Pater’s Music Ministry, church director pastor Jose Montijo Soler collaborated extensively with consultant-integrator Jose David Irizarry to find the best sounding audio system that would still work within the church’s budgetary constraints. As pastor Montijo Soler explains, “We looked… View this post

    Many believe that condenser microphones are more sensitive than dynamic microphones (moving coil) and therefore pick up “everything,” e.g., stage wash and noise. Sensitivity, however, is nothing but a constant conversion rate from pressure to voltage and more important, it is distance independent. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the reason for picking up “everything.” Most condenser mics are indeed more sensitive. A Neumann KMS 105 condenser with a sensitivity spec of 4.5 millivolts at 1 Pascal (4.5 mV/Pa) is… View this post

    Maximo Park has released five studio albums to date, with a Mercury Prize nomination under their belt and two gold accredited albums. The band has a recognizable sound which saw a home-town crowd erupt in Times Square Newcastle this summer at a special outdoor concert in the city center. The 5-piece alternative rock band has been performing with the Midas PRO1 digital mixing system at front of house, adding a new dimension to their distinct sound. Andy Hawkins is the… View this post

Casino management tasked neighbors Musik Lenz with providing an audio system for the entire superstructure. Karl Weinand, K-array product specialist at Lenz, designed a solution with even coverage for background music using eight to twelve… View this post

    Sure, you have a great microphone collection, the latest digital console, and fantastic loudspeakers – that’s everything required of a sound company, right? Well, not exactly. The truth is that it’s the little things that can make the most significant difference between a “good” or “great” gig. Here’s a list of some (not all) of the “must haves” at any show, no matter how big or small. —- Gaffer (“Gaff”) Tape – not “duct” (or “duck”) tape, or masking tape,… View this post
