    My father used to say, “Son, opinions are like drum miking techniques. Everyone has one.” Or something like that… Truthfully, there’s an overwhelming amount of information already out there on this topic, so rather than rehash it here, let’s explore a less conventional approach. I’ll admit that it’s a unique method, as it’s a hybrid of studio techniques and some ideas “begged, borrowed and stolen” from engineers I admire. Picture a snare drum. Let’s mike the top and bottom heads.… View this post

Tell you parents to send me your tuition money while you go “find yourself.” How’s that sound? So much that the $500/day I’m earning isn’t worth it to me. Or is it? Do you have any idea how few sound mixers make $500 a day?… View this post

    Grasshopper Off the Green is a lively Irish pub in Morristown, New Jersey spanning three stories that patrons regularly fill to capacity. Its current sound system was updated in 2011, but the amps that went in with the loudspeakers couldn’t keep up with the pub’s near-constant use. Local A/V integrator Starview Satellite replaced them with KLR-3200 and nX 3.02 amplifiers from Ashly Audio. “They’ve got a ton of stuff going on at Grasshopper,” said Rich Trombitas, regional sales & product… View this post
