    Attention shoppers: the good news is that in this century, there is very little bad sound equipment. There are still plenty of bad engineers (not enough sleep and too much fun) and bad combinations of gear (70-volt clusters and powered mixers driving powered loudspeakers). But the stuff coming out of the factories - and even a lot of the proprietary (home brew) gear - is light years beyond the stuff we all got stuck with in the past. A not-so-famous… View this post

    Courtesy of Merlijn van Veen.   Why does a specification like “We need a sound system capable of delivering full range 103 dB(A) of clear and undistorted sound at the front of house position” make me scratch my head? Because, typically the mix doesn’t exhibit an A-weighted spectrum. Even as a precautionary measure to make sure the sound system is capable of handling the show, this remains a questionable specification. Never mind that it doesn’t mention an integration time (average)… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This one obviously goes back a few years, but the information is worthy of repeating. One of my favorite scenes in Ghostbusters is when Egon gives the guys a warning about crossing the streams. As we know, it’s not good. Not good at all. Dr. Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you. Dr. Peter Venkman: What? Dr. Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams. Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?… View this post
