    Florence and the Machine’s current European dates to promote her Ceremonials album were recently upsized for a three-night run at London’s Alexandra Palace, with the band joined by a 12-piece choir and 12-piece string section. A new Midas PRO2 live audio system supplemented monitor world for these gigs, joining the stalwart XL8 at FOH. Both consoles were provided by Britannia Row Productions. Engineer Mike Gibbard was using the PRO2 to provide monitor mixes for the choir and string section, and… View this post

    The emotional attachment to music that we humans have amazes me.  I can hear a song that I listened to in junior high school, and boom—my mind goes back there. I can remember where I was, see who was with me, and sometimes even relive the emotion that I experienced almost 30 years ago. Recently I interview Gary Matthews, Pastor of Worship at Christ Memorial Church in Holland, MI, and we talked about this attachment to music.  Gary made some… View this post

    From humble beginnings as a café showcase for Dutch acts, in 14 years Vrienden van Amstel Live has grown in size, with the 2012 event encompassing seven sold out nights at Rotterdam’s 10,000 seat Ahoy Arena. Such were the technical demands that it required four DiGiCo SD7 consoles and seven of the latest SD racks to manage the audio, with all equipment supplied by Ampco Flashlight Rental. The televised show included 17 top Dutch bands playing across three stages, set… View this post

    Established as the region’s very first church in 1840, Pleasantville United Church of Christ has served the southeastern counties of Bucks and Montgomery (PA) for more than 170 years, and the church recently completed construction of its new sanctuary, a project that began more than 15 years ago. The newly built sanctuary is an exact replica of the original building, but constructed on a larger footprint. The challenge of designing the optimal audio system for the space was met by… View this post

    Two-dimensional graphs are useful for displaying sound system component specifications, but a third dimension is required for considering parameters that are a function of (depend on) a position in space. This includes two data types that are absolutely essential to the sound system designer - loudspeaker directivity data and computer models of auditoriums. Let’s investigate the use of three-dimensional graphs for describing the radiation from loudspeakers. Why is this data needed? Sound radiation is a three-dimensional disturbance that (in most… View this post

    EAW has announced the release of the KF740 zero degree adapter accessory that permits KF740 line array modules to hang with zero degrees of splay between adjacent modules, increasing the output and throw distance of those arrays. In addition, the adapter accessory’s design increases the total load-bearing capability of the upper modules, significantly increasing the size of arrays that can be safely hung. “We developed this adapter because our customers specifically asked for it,” says EAW president Jeff Rocha said.… View this post

    With a self-contained operation that played about 265 live dates in 2011, multi-instrumental country music artist Amber Leigh recently acquired an Allen & Heath iLive-T112 digital mixing console with a companion iDR-48 MixRack. “It’s really important for us to have consistency and to be self-contained, so we needed something we could travel with whether we’re on a bus or an airplane,” says Holland Ryan, the band’s sound engineer.

    When Opera Australia’s artistic director Lyndon Terracini announced that the staging of an open-air opera on Sydney Harbor, there was much skepticism from opera buffs who anticipated a production disaster. The event presented significant technical and logistical challenges—in particular the sound quality of an operatic performance that utilized radio microphones and amplification. However, this open-air production of Verdi’s La Traviata has opened to much acclaim by critics and while Brian Thomson’s open, sloping, diamond-shaped stage with its scene-stealing 9m x… View this post
