    While the live microphone market is full of “old favorites” that continue to the do the job year after year, there’s also a constant drive toward innovation. Dynamic models remain most popular, but continuing a trend, condenser designs are getting increased traction among both manufacturers and users alike. Ribbon models, once too fragile for rigorous live sound applications, are no longer so, and provide yet another option in the mic box. We’ve also seen a notable uptick in the number… View this post

    In 2009, St. Matthew United Methodist Church in Belleville, IL, undertook a major renovation of its technology systems, including making the leap from analog to digital by installing a DiGiCo SD8 as its main audio console. Continuing its digital progression, the house of worship recently added an SD9 with D-Rack (connected to the SD8 via DiGiCo’s Little Red Box), replacing an analog desk at the hub of its video production suite to handle the increased complexity of its productions. Church… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   It’s easy to get lost in the nuts and bolts of mixing. Remember these 10 axioms; because when you’re up to your neck in faders and knobs, much of what you are doing comes down to dealing with these 10 points. 1) There will occasionally be someone who thinks it’s too loud, no matter how carefully you watch your volume levels. Don’t take this as a sign of failure. Every person… View this post

    Rational Acoustics Smaart v.7 measurement data is now integrated in the new Apex Intelli-Ware software control platform for the Intelli-X2 and the Intelli-Z² system management processors. Intelli-Ware 1.4 offers integration of Smaart v.7 data via the Smaart v.7 API (application program interface) enabling transfer of measurement data from Smaart 7 to Intelli-Ware. Smaart’s transfer function and/or spectrum analyzer response can be seen as an underlay in all parametric EQ bode-plot and crossover windows. Virtually all of Smaart’s measurement control features… View this post

    This article is provided by Corporate Tech Decisions   Before A/V and IT systems started merging together into one overall network, organizations typically managed each system separately. Data signals were routed through IT’s servers and sent out to end users over Cat-5 cables, video traffic was contained within its own platform and ran over coaxial cable, and phone calls transited a private branch exchange (PBX) system before being carried to the desktop via an old school Cat-3 cable. The systems… View this post
