    Much pro audio industry humor revolves around techs versus musicians. By their very nature, techs are knowledgeable problem solvers. The flip side of this nature are musicians who “don’t let knowledge get in the way” of their artistic pursuit. Hence the endless putdowns: “Can you read music? Not enough to hurt my playing.” “What do you throw a drowning guitarist? His amp.” “Why did the drummer leave his sticks on the dashboard? So he can park in the handicap zone.”… View this post

Additionally, one of the earliest entrants into digital wireless, Line 6, released a new generation of its platform last year. Digital systems represent a paradigm shift, bringing with them new technologies, often greater immunity to interference, typically excellent and uncompressed frequency response, and sometimes the ability… View this post

    line arrays
    Jeff Berryman 08/22/14 12:11 PM,
    Often, it’s necessary to cover audience angles wider than the horizontal pattern of a single line array, even an array of 120-degree loudspeakers. In such cases, multiple line arrays are needed, as shown in the diagram below. When multiple arrays are used to cover a single area, the loudspeakers must be positioned and aimed for best sound and minimum wave interference (a.k.a., comb filtering). Here’s a procedure for getting smooth coverage and minimizing comb filtering over the entire coverage angle,… View this post
