    VenueMagic has enhanced the fixture override feature for its family of Show Control platforms. Combining live hardware control with VenueMagic’s ability to pre-program show elements, fixture override allows users to take real-time control of their VenueMagic-controlled show using hardware such as DMX lighting consoles, MIDI controllers, or VenueMagic’s built-in Virtual Control Surface. Fixture override works by disabling any pre-programming – from a fixture to a timeline – that a user chooses to control in real-time. Users can take control of… View this post

    For those who missed my first “newbie” column, here’s a re-cap. I’m the guy you love to hate, a musician almost from birth who is also a long-time professional sound engineer (35 years and counting). My goal is to inform and educate the less-experienced sound people that I work with on a regular basis from my spot at stage right in front of my guitar amp, behind my 36-pound pedal board, in my seven-piece blues, rock, soul – and whatever… View this post

Monitors can feed back and/or leak into the vocal microphones, coloring the sound. Bass sound can leak into the drum mics, and the drums… View this post

    Radial Engineering has announced the StageDirect, a new direct box that combines all of the standard features one would find in a DI with the added convenience of being able to mute the signal using a footswitch for silent on-stage tuning or to quietly switch instruments without having to turn down the PA system or put the stage amp on standby. As with all Radial direct boxes, the StageDirect is made from 14-gauge steel and finished in baked enamel for… View this post
