    We’re currently in-between touring seasons. Cables and snakes have been tested and repaired, wood painted, and cases treated to fresh new stenciling. All racks have been repackaged to their standard configurations, trucks subjected to annual maintenance, and warehouse floor swept - twice. Aside from a stray show here and there, for many hire companies, things are pretty quiet. Yes, these are the days that turn sound company owner and manager thoughts to Alternative Revenue Sources (ARS). The contracting/install market is… View this post

    After several years designing and installing sound systems for small- and mid-sized churches, I discovered an unobtainable goal that we tend to pursue, even though we know it’s a mirage. I’m referring, of course, to the concept of idiot-proofing. A recent trade show visit had me concerned about the way a lot of gear is being marketed. At least to me, it appears that most manufacturers are working to eliminate the human element in purporting to design equipment that simply… View this post

According to Radial senior engineer Dan Fraser: “The traditional press box has always been presented as a suitcase with a mic input and a host of mic outputs.In the past, transformers performed the task of splitting the signal and providing isolation against hum and buzz caused by ground loops.” “In recent years, the use of active signal buffers has… View this post
