    After initial shoot-outs involving lighting designers and a visit to the PLASA trade show in London in September, Belgium-based event production supplier Phlippo Showlights made an investment in the new Martin Professional MAC Viper Profile, winner of the PLASA Innovation Award. “I was present at the first shoot-outs at the Phlippo Showlights headquarters and the Viper looked promising to me,” says lighting designer Thomas Boets of Light Design Productions, who specified the Viper on I Love Techno that took place… View this post

    For nearly 60 years Milne Stadium has been home to generations of Albuquerque’s local sporting events. Recently the 6500-seat arena received a wide-ranging makeover, including a new playing surface, new paint and stucco, and a new audio system featuring Community R-Series loudspeakers. As Sound and Signal Systems’ William Hartley explains, the stadium’s previous sound system had been problematic for some time. “A few years ago they installed a new scoreboard behind the end zone, complete with a long-throw, single-point line… View this post

    The Stavanger (Norway) Symphony Orchestra has spent the past 14 years wishing for a new home that it could truly call its own, and in September, that wish finally became a reality with the opening of the new Stavanger Concert Hall. The world-class venue, designed by Oslo architects Ratio Arkitekter to host all types of cultural events, includes two halls that both have DiGiCo consoles for mixing the amplified sound. Each of the two halls—one for orchestral music, the other… View this post

    In the previous segment, we looked at the basic process of using a high-resolution FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analyzer to view the frequency and phase response of a 12-inch cone driver in a typical 12-inch/2-way loudspeaker. In that segment, we established that the 30-degree off-axis response of the cone driver is substantially lower in level (12 to 18 dB), as well as highly irregular in phase and frequency above approximately 2 kHz, when compared to the driver’s on-axis response (Figure… View this post

    The second edition of The Ultimate Church Sound Operator’s Handbook by Bill Gibson, just published by Hal Leonard, is written to specifically address the concerns and needs of the sound person who serves ministries and churches. The modern church uses many of the same presentation tools that have become common in television, movies, and concerts, placing a unique set of technical expectations on its eager, willing, and primarily volunteer force. This updated handbook blends the relational and technical aspects of… View this post
