    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   An audio pass filter attenuates an entire range of frequencies. There are two types of pass filters (Figure 1, below). A high-pass filter (HPF) attenuates content below a cutoff frequency, allowing higher frequencies to pass through the filter. A low-pass filter (LPF) attenuates content above a cutoff frequency, allowing lower frequencies to pass through the filter. The slope of filter attenuation is usually quantified in decibels per octave. For example,… View this post

    In October, the Martin Audio MLA Mini stepped out onto the world stage in its first commercial outing, and at a challenging venue. The event was the annual conference of the UK retail company SPAR, and the venue was Westpoint, otherwise known to those in the sound community as a “soulless shed” located just off the M5 in Exeter. While Westpoint offers acres of space for trucks, and therefore easy load in, the venue itself, originally designed for the trading… View this post

    Sennheiser has announced that it has recently filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in light of the pending spectrum auction scheduled to take place in 2014. The government auction, which jeopardizes the future use of wireless microphones and monitors operating in the 600 MHz range, will force many U.S. based content creators — including live production, broadcast, and film professionals — to attempt to stage their shows using little more than half of the currently available UHF spectrum.… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   As more and more of our A/V/L equipment becomes computerized—and thus is running from a hard drive—figuring out how long a drive will last is quickly becoming a big deal for technical leaders. A quick count in my tech booth tallied 20 hard drives (both SSD and spinning). Some of those are backups, and that doesn’t count the three others that we keep in another room as backups. So to say our operation… View this post

    Jim Roese, owner of audio company RPM Dynamics and production manager/monitor engineer for Blondie, recently specified Mackie SRM loudspeakers in upgrading the stage setup at Bernie’s Bar, a live performance venue in Nashua, NH. Previously, hard rock and punk bands like Dop, The Misfits and Soil playing at Bernie’s were having a hard time with the club’s mix-and-match stage monitoring setup. For loud acts, stage volume is a primary concern, and the artists weren’t happy. At the same time, for… View this post

    Take a free lesson in a SynAudCon web-based training course   Why should one bother trying to understand basic acoustics? The most simple (and correct) answer is that study of basic concepts enables one to sort through the truth, semi-truth, myths and flat-out errors that pervade the pro audio industry. The fundamentals of acoustics (and physics) do not change, although some “experts” try to prove otherwise. New equipment, toys and theories come and go, but the basic building blocks of… View this post

    An Audient ASP8024 with Dual Layer Control (DLC) and patchbay was the final choice for Northampton University, which Popular Music course leader Dr Gordon Okafor-Ross describes as “…very progressive and forward facing.” Nine months of meticulous research by Okafor-Ross led to its installation ready for autumn term, where the desk further augments an already well-equipped recording studio. Boasting ProTools 11, Logic Pro X, Ableton Suite 9, the collection of mics from Neumann U87 to Shure SM57 and everything in between,… View this post

    RTW recently sold eight RTW TM7 TouchMonitors to Astro Production Sdn. Bhd., a leading Asian broadcaster, for monitoring of audio levels. The TM7s were equipped with several software modules, including: the SW20001, SW20002, SW20004, SW20005 and SW20006 units. Stagetec Asia (www.stagetecasia.com), a long-time distributor of RTW, coordinated the sale. Audio loudness standards have been a key concern for many broadcasters worldwide. That being said, the company sought a new tool that would help it to monitor its audio levels consistently.… View this post
