    The CAD Audio AS32 Acousti-shield was developed as an essential accessory for recording; when effectively utilized, it can substantially reduce unwanted reflections, echo flutter and environmental acoustic interference. The design results in an easy to use, highly flexible device, while not sacrificing stand-mounted stability. The AS32 Acousti-Shield is constructed from a high quality 16 gauge perforated stainless steel shield mated to 53mm high-density micro cell acoustic foam resulting in a dry recording environment. It is supplied with mounting hardware to… View this post

    d.a.s. audio
    Paul Watson 04/09/12 03:10 PM,
    The D.A.S. Audio journey began more than 40 years ago, when a new enterprise named “Dynamic and Sound” was created by Juan Alberola in Valencia, Spain in 1971. Alberola, with a serious passion for audio, began designing and manufacturing his own loudspeakers and components, initially for studio monitoring and home listening, and all built in-house. Just a few years later, that focus also included producing larger loudspeakers for Spain’s thriving dance club, fueled by the country’s reputation as a European… View this post

    A new software and firmware update is now available for the KRK Systems ERGO audio recording interface and room correction system designed to measure and analyze phase and frequency problems within a listening environment. To correct room issues, the internal digital signal processor analyzes and corrects room problems, improving the response at the listening position which results in mixes which translate far better to other playback systems.

    An understanding of the sound reinforcement system optimization process as described in my previous article (here) leads to what may be a startling conclusion: with relatively little effort, this technology could be leveraged immediately. A number of products are currently on the market that begin to leverage this technology. These range from stand-alone beam-steering column loudspeakers from companies such as Renkus-Heinz, Tannoy and EAW to higher-power arrayable products such as Martin Audio MLA, Duran Audio Target, and Renkuz-Heinz IC Squared.… View this post

    When Yes Events Ltd purchased a major RCF Theatre & Touring (TT+) system nine months ago they were determined to standardize on RCF components from that point forward. Their recent purchase of eight-enclosure TTL33-A compact, 3-way active line array system and two additional TTS28-A subwoofers was a good start on that commitment. In addition, they have invested in six TT25-SMA touring 15in stage monitors and RCF’s proprietary RDNet system software, to integrate with the TTL33-A. According to Yes Events director,… View this post
