    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   The topic for today’s post comes from a reader, Jonathan Mould. He wanted to know more about the electrical side of sound. This is an interesting topic because sound is both electrical and physical. Sound systems turn physical movement of air into electrical signals, then process and amplify those signals (sometimes changing them into streams of 1s and 0s and back), and finally turn those amplified signals back into physical air movement.

    Radial Engineering has announced the new StageBug SB-4 Piezo, a direct box specifically developed to solve the problems associated with amplifying acoustic instruments when using piezo-electric transducers. The StageBug SB-4 begins with a 1/4-inch input to connect the instrument’s piezo transducer output.  This 10 meg-ohm input is 10 times higher than a traditional DI. The higher impedance smoothes out the peaks and squawk that is common to most piezo systems while broadening the frequency response for a more natural and… View this post

    The idea of setting up a complicated audio system every day, in constantly changing venues and in the time limitations of a few hours is daunting, to say the least. Yet it’s the inevitable reality of touring sound. Thousands of pounds of hardware, miles of cable and hundreds of connections are required for system operation. All of this must be done in a timely manner, to allow for the “black art” of tuning the rig and mixing the music. Multipin… View this post
