    It’s rare that a project is so essential that even its identity has to be protected. Yet near to South Korean city of Gyeongju, in the province of Gyeongsang, the recently opened headquarters of one of Asia’s largest power companies is so important that its name can’t even be printed. Yet even the largest projects can run into familiar challenges, and like thousands of less secretive installations, when this facility encountered acoustic problems, it turned to a name it already… View this post

    I first started reading Live Sound International during high school (literally, during school), and I distinctly remember feeling frustrated by the professionals’ jargon. To that point, the sum total of my experience was “guess/test/revise” with whatever gear my school had lying around. I understood some concepts, but not the terms for them. I knew how to ring out a monitor, but I had no idea that process was called “ringing out.” I just knew it was a thing you were… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   One of the most common questions that comes up on many live sound forums is how to stop noises in a sound system. I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting on this subject over the past several years, plus I’ve been battling sound system noise such as hum in the field for more than 45 years, so here’s my observations on sound system noise and what to do about it. Before having any chance… View this post

    Although it’s been open for a mere four years in the northern suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, The Velvet Note has attracted national attention. Its intimate room seats only forty and was carefully designed by George Seldon to support music with well-balanced acoustics; which are now supported with loudspeakers from Danley Sound Labs. Top jazz artists now make The Velvet Note a staple in their tour schedules, including Christian McBride, Marcus Printup, Diane Schuur and the late great Lou Soloff, among… View this post

    When Grease: Live, a television adaptation of the 1971 musical Grease, aired on FOX, audio supervisor/designer Bruce Arledge knew that DPA Microphones would provide the perfect audio support for the multitude of actors on set. Brought on by producer Greg Sills and production mixer Mark King, Arledge was confident that the DPA mics would catch every syllable, both spoken and sung. Shooting on four stages at Warner Bros. Studios and outfitting multiple performers, Arledge needed microphones that would complement the… View this post

You can read and comment on the original article here. Reverb is one of the most interesting aspects of digital signal processing effects for audio. It is a form of processing that is well-suited to digital processing, while being completely impractical with analog electronics. Because of this, digital signal processing has had a profound affect on… View this post

    The input list and stage plot is the audio core of any technical rider and the road map for organizing stage equipment and console inputs. Accurate advance information allows risers and backline to be placed, microphones and wedges cabled, and even a line check when the touring crew’s travel is delayed. Working for clubs, festivals or sound companies, we’re often frustrated by inaccurate paperwork reflecting a version of a band that’s months or years old. The reason for out-of-date paperwork… View this post
