    The fast-paced whirlwind of the Foo Fighters’ “Sonic Highways World Tour” has encouraged the professionals behind the sound to be on top of every detail at every venue behind the scenes, but they haven’t had to worry about signal transport and sonic quality, thanks to the integration of several Focusrite RedNet Dante interfaces into the sound system. Focusrite’s latest RedNet D16R AES interface is used to bridge 16 channels of AES/EBU between the DiGiCo SD5 digital console on the tour… View this post

    Revamping major sports facilities and bringing them up-to-date now almost invariably involves a comprehensive review of the audio processing configuration so that it can cope with both current and future requirements. Providing the spring training home of Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics since earlier this year, the Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, Arizona, is no exception –and as the result of its latest upgrade, now features an extensive Symetrix DSP infrastructure. Minneapolis, MN-based Parsons Technologies performed the installation at Hohokam Stadium.… View this post

    Mixing front of house sound for festivals is both one of the easiest and most challenging situations we face as live sound engineers. They present a perfect storm of all factors working against us: minimal setup and sound check time, huge audiences, pressures from band management, outdoor environmental factors, plus show reviewers can make direct comparisons between the quality of our mix and a multitude of others. To make things worse, unless we work for a top-billed artist on the… View this post

    The Garland Theater in Spokane, Washington opened its doors in 1945. In 1999, Katherine Fritchie purchased the theater, realizing that the treasured venue needed some serious upgrades if it was going to continue to be a vital part of the community. Dedicated to revitalizing theater while maintaining its beloved history, Fritchie turned to local integration firm Hoffman Pro Systems to design and install a new AV system protected, powered and operated by a Furman SmartSequencer. “I have been working with… View this post

    In 1990, a University of Michigan Engineering School graduate named Igor Levin set out to make ‘superior sound, simplified’ by trailblazing developments in the world of digital conversion and audio clocking technology. His innovations were already recognized by a number of sound engineers around the world, when in 2005 Levin and Antelope Audio introduced the oven-controlled crystal oscillator clocking solution. A couple of years later he revealed the benefits of Atomic clocking for the audio industry. Now, following more than… View this post

    A maintenance revision to AES67-2013 – the AES standard for high-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability – has been issued. The revision, called AES67-2015, clarifies some of the interoperability requirements, based on general implementation and “plugfest” experience. The possibility to incorporate these revisions was identified during the AES ‘Plugfest’ testing, carried out in cooperation with the European Broadcast Union (EBU), in October last year, and held at the Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT), in Munich, Germany. During these tests ten companies tested 16… View this post

    Another touring season is winding down. The gear has been hustled in and out of the trucks, up and down the ramps and suffered through the mud and dust and rain, and well, frankly, some of it’s looking a little tired. At least the super glue held that knob on the compressor through the summer and there were enough working snake channels left for the last big festival. But now it’s time to take inventory and decide what has some… View this post
