    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The road case is essential to anyone on tour with gear that needs to be protected, so I thought this would be a good time to bring back something that I posted about few years ago. It’s an excerpt from The Touring Musician’s Handbook that provides a good look at the differences between popular road case styles. Here we go. For many musicians, buying road cases for their gear is sort of… View this post

    For over a decade, Cairo Jazz Club has been attracting artists, both home-grown and international, and helping to launch new talent.

In July this year, it closed its doors for its annual renovations, re-opening with a fresh look and brand new L-Acoustics loudspeakers. The new system, which comprises a combination of L-Acoustics ARCS Wide and X Series loudspeakers, was designed and installed by Heliopolis-based Audio Technology,… View this post

    Like many sound engineers, I have a background in music, so I’ve been on both sides of sound checks and know how annoying a poorly-run check can be for musicians. These experiences have led to a paradigm shift in the way I approach sound checks: they’re for the artists, not the engineers. On the road, practice time is in short supply, so many artists prefer to use their stage time to rehearse new material, tweak the backline, and tighten up… View this post

    In its most basic form, a DI – also known as a direct box and short for “direct injection” and/or “direct insert” – takes an unbalanced high-impedance signal (i.e., from an electric guitar or keyboard) and converts it to a balanced low-impedance signal. This process is needed when running high-impedance signal at long distances, such as down a snake to a front of house console. Unconverted, the unbalanced signal can pick up noise; also, sending high-impedance signal at longer distances… View this post
