    While digital gets most of the press, analog still does much of the work when it comes to signal transport. A well-designed and organized cabling system not only saves time during load-in/out, but also makes troubleshooting easier. Setting up a labeling system is simple and saves a lot of time in the long run. The first thing to do is take stock of what you have. While some sound companies like to keep all XLR cables the same length, most… View this post

    From Livingston Taylor to Ziggy Marley, U2 to The Red Clay Ramblers, Grammy-winning producer Glenn Rosenstein’s multi-decade discography is both lengthy and delightfully eclectic. So it’s hardly surprising that Rosenstein jumped at the opportunity to take on a project unlike anything he’d done before. “I had no expectations other than wanting to do something completely different - to enjoy a new experience,” Rosenstein says. Despite those limited expectations, Advent at Ephesus, his on-location recording of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen… View this post

    With the rise of personal monitor mixers, the Sunday morning sound tech has had to worry less and less about the monitor mix for the musicians.  However, there are still a large number of churches which either do not have personal monitor mixers on stage. Or, only some musicians have personal mixers and some musicians like the vocalist still have their monitors controlled at front of house. One very compelling reason to keep control of vocalist monitor mixes at the… View this post

    Omer Inan 04/01/13 11:42 AM,
    High-end audio equipment manufacturers pride themselves on consistently delivering robust products that hold up to rough treatment. Unfortunately, the success of any live performance depends on more than just the products themselves: many complex environmental, human, and unknown factors can cause a performance to fail. Radio frequency (RF) interference can compromise the transmission, causing the audio to drop out. The presenter can lean in and nearly swallow the gooseneck microphone head, creating loud pops and bass boost. A drop of… View this post
