    Swiss rental company Livesound B-AG has added a Soundcraft Vi1 digital console to its hire fleet, which already includes a larger Vi4 and several Soundcraft analog mixing desks. Based outside Berne, it was the need for a monitor desk to mix the reference sound for leading Swiss rock band, Patent Ochsner that drove the latest acquisition. Livesound B-AG are a long-term customer of Soundcraft—and of its Swiss distributor, Dr. W.A. Guenther Distribution, who over the past two decades has kept… View this post

Here are some approaches that have produced good results. Arrays One of the important principles to follow in such spaces is to aim the loudspeaker at the back row. Those folks need the highest SPL and directivity, both of which are usually on the main axis of the loudspeaker. It’s also important to not… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   On Twitter, @busyscott asked if I knew of any “How To” guides for building a portable sound system. I thought for a while, and realized I couldn’t think of any. So I thought I’d write up a Reader’s Digest condensed version. This won’t be comprehensive, but will have a few thoughts on what I consider important for portable system design. Of course, all these ideas need to be considered in light of your… View this post

    “If only real life could be more like theater,” joked host Neil Patrick Harris as he opened the 66th annual Tony Awards at New York City’s historic Beacon Theater. In order to bring Broadway’s memories over the past year to life, Red Hook, New York-based Firehouse Productions relied on Harman’s JBL VerTec line arrays and Crown amplifiers for the live sound reinforcement system. This years’ awards show featured performances from some of the top theatrical productions of the year, including… View this post
