To fully support its programming diversity and inspire original works of multimedia art, the Exploratorium has become the first museum facility to install a Constellation acoustic system, supplemented with a palette of other audio tools from Meyer Sound.

    Well known for their informative and, frequently, entertaining programs, the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conferences operate under the premise of ‘ideas worth spreading.’ On September 7th, the program TEDxABQ 2013: Be Extraordinary took place at Popejoy Hall on the campus of the University of New Mexico. To help ensure superior audio quality with freedom from cables, Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone technology from Lectrosonics was placed into service.

    An icon of the modern People’s Republic of China, Beijing’s Great Hall of the People is truly a towering architectural achievement. The 1.9million square foot (171,800 sq m) hall, overlooking the city’s Tiananmen Square, was originally constructed in just 10 months, officially opening in September 1959 to mark the 10th anniversary of the PRC. Designed by Zhang Bo, it has since become famous worldwide as the home of the National People’s Congress.  Most recently, the Great Hall was once again… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   It’s been a long time coming, but we finally did it. For years I’ve wanted to update our stage lighting rig, but the funds have not been there. A few years ago, we managed to score some used High End Studio Color 575s which gave us some additional color backlight, but it wasn’t what we really wanted. But this year, our End Of Life savings plan starts paying off. 2013 is the year… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve been thinking about the end of life lately. Not my end of life, mind you, but our equipment’s end of life. Over the last few years, I’ve been working on replacing all the outdated, worn out and incorrect equipment at Coast Hills (which is just about everything). I figure this process will take another 3-5 years at least. However, every piece of equipment has a fixed lifespan; stuff just doesn’t last forever.… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   This excerpt from the Audio Mixing Bootcamp offers some tips on how to visualize your mix even before you’ve moved the first fader. Most mixers can hear some version of the final product in their heads before they get too far into the mix. This is because they’ve heard rough mixes of the song many times before during production, but even if a mixer is brought in just for the mix, they… View this post
