    Let’s face it - the live sound reinforcement realm presents some microphone challenges that regularly threaten sound quality. Look at the conditions. The monitors feed back. They leak into the vocal microphones and color the sound. The bass sound leaks into the drum mics, and the drums leak into the piano microphones. And then there are the other mic-related gremlins - breath pops, lighting buzzes, wireless-mic glitches, and even electric shocks. So let’s have a look at solving at least… View this post
