    With roots that date back to 1796, the historic Odense Theater in Denmark has recently upgraded to a Meyer Sound surround system based on the MINA line array and miniature MM-4XP loudspeakers. With its new sonic capabilities, Odense looks forward to broadening its programming and clientele. The theatre principals had long awaited the opportunity to present plays and other programs with the added dimension of an enveloping audio experience. “For a long time, the sound department at Odense Teater wanted… View this post

    Several years ago, I was invited to be a presenter at an audio industry trade show, and while there, I greatly enjoyed meeting some fellow presenters. In fact, after the convention center hall closed, eight of us audio “geeks” went to enjoy dinner together, and it turned out to be a fun—and instructive—evening on many levels. At one point, as we were seated around the table, someone in the group posed this hypothetical question: “If you got a call to… View this post

    live sound effects
    Tim Andras 04/24/12 03:07 PM,
    On rare days off from running sound, I get the opportunity to go to several local clubs to check out the work of other mix engineers. This is really cool because I pick up tips that can help my own work, in addition to experiencing a wide range of gear. One thing in particular that I pay close attention to is effects, and I find that in most every case, some type of effect is applied on almost every instrument… View this post

    This year’s Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, held annually on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, featured Powersoft K20 amplifiers powering the sound reinforcement systems utilized on multiple stages for the event. This year marked the second year that Mario Sound & Entertainment has provided the sound reinforcement systems for the carnival. The only difference this year was that they utilized the Powersoft amplifiers recently added to their system inventory. “Our investment in multiple K20 Powersoft amplifiers has been an… View this post

    Sensaphonics has announced a new demo program for its patented 3D Active Ambient IEM System. The “3D/3Free” program enables artists to obtain a universal-fit version of the system for trial or demonstration purposes. Demo participants qualify for three separate value-added incentives when purchasing a custom-fit 3D system. The patented 3D Active Ambient has the unique ability to add user-controlled stage ambiance to the monitor mix via a binaural miniature microphone system embedded in its soft silicone earpieces. “This is a… View this post

    Start by identifying the location of the speakers in the cabinet. Don’t assume that the speaker location is symmetrical (some are, some aren’t.) You may need to look at the back of the cabinet or shine a flashlight through the grillcloth to locate the position of the drivers inside the cabinet. Next, aim for the center of the paper cone, and about 1-2 inches from the grillcloth. This is the general starting place for all setups. Adjustments will be made… View this post

    PSW Staff 04/03/12 08:41 AM,
    Grund Audio Design has introduced the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors, the latest additions to the GT Series floor monitor product group, with both new models offering two-way, bass reflex and dual angle enclosure designs. The GT-1220M’s components include a 12-inch high-excursion, low-frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver that is coupled to a controlled pattern horn, while the GT-1520M offers the same design approach with the exception of being outfitted with a 15-inch woofer. Both provide 40-degree horizontal… View this post

    About once a month, I get to mix for what I call an “extravaganza” of musical performance. Our worship leader refers to it as “sound by the pound.” The event can consist of a brass section with 10-12 players (trumpet, trombone, saxophone, and tuba), as well as a string section of a few players sprinkled with a few woodwinds, and then a rhythm section that includes lead guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboard(s) bass, drums, aux percussion. Oh, l almost forgot the… View this post

    Paul Mitchell has made a career of engineering live and studio performances for jazz artists; most notably with keyboardist Joe Sample, Jazz Crusaders and Jonathan Brooke. Recently he produced “Hipping the Hop” with Joe Sample - piano, Steve Gadd - drums and Nicklas Sample - bass, which is a perfect case study of how to record and mix live, at the same time. “I put the focus on the basics and start with a good set of tools,” says Mitchell. … View this post
