    According to an old axiom, “Everyone knows two things: their job and sound.” In other words, every audience member is an audio expert. Therefore, it is difficult to deliver a “good” mix since what is proper tonal and level balance to one person is inappropriate to another. A healthy relationship between the front of house engineer and the audience rests on the engineer’s ability to provide a mix acceptable to a plurality of the listeners’ ears. To achieve success, the… View this post

    Being the online forum lurker that I sometimes am, there are times when I’m struck by a pattern or trend that was never clear before (for whatever reason). It happened just a while ago, and the context is relevant to what we do in our business of live sound. This particular discussion, on a music forum, was a thread about “the great tone we’ve spent years perfecting that is destroyed when it goes through a PA.” (You guessed it –… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: This story originally ran in December 2010, but the information is still very relevant and worthy of repeating. This week is production week for us at Coast Hills. And it’s quite a production; Gunch! is an (almost) all-original musical-style stage play with an 80+ member cast, 13 person pit band and five performances over the weekend with an expected attendance of 4500+. It’s quite an undertaking. This past Friday was opening… View this post

    As the use of wireless systems continues to grow and the available wireless spectrum continues to shrink, the need for someone to coordinate all of that wireless on any given event becomes greater. It’s why you’re increasingly likely to encounter a frequency coordinator on a show or tour. With this in mind, and as a frequency coordinator, I’ve come up with a list of frequently asked questions about what I do. What is a frequency coordinator? A person (or team… View this post

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we thought it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of May 2016. Note… View this post

    When was the last time that you listened analytically to the loudspeakers in your sanctuary and perhaps other spaces? I mean really, truly listened to them? The reason that I ask is because easily 80 percent of the church loudspeaker systems that I’m invited to evaluate and re-voice (“tune,” “EQ,” “optimize,” etc.) have something seriously wrong with them – something that the church sound techs and pastoral staff are totally unaware of. Sometimes sound techs might be suspicious that things… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Have you ever seen or given a sales pitch that went like this:“Take a look at the proposal. If the price is too high, just let me know what will work for you and I’ll see what I can do?” Stop! You have just handed your prospective client a proposal and are already offering a price break. Why did you even bother to put a price on it? Take A Step Back… View this post
