    This article is provided by SoundGirls.org   I meet a lot of sound engineers and techs around my age (mid-20s) that strictly stick to audio and don’t dare to touch anything else, whether it be to stay focused on audio or to not get roped into something they don’t particularly want to do. There isn’t anything wrong with this. Laser-focusing on one discipline can yield some great results. I know that my passion lies in audio, live sound especially. I… View this post

    The much-discussed auction of the 600 MHz frequency band is happening in the U.S., and it may well affect present wireless systems as well as related issues such as frequency planning/coordination. It’s important for everyone who works with creating the content that will stream on the mobile devices when the spectrum is cleared to understand the present situation and to be planning for the transition to different frequency bands.  Several leading pro audio wireless system manufacturers have taken the lead… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I couldn’t believe my eyes!  The sound check was over and the sound guy had all the volume faders set at zero and all the EQ pots set at the noon position.  Listening to the music during the service, it was obvious there was no depth to the mix. That was probably 20 years ago, but the memory has stuck with me. Mix depth is the mix arrangement of sounds in… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   As my partner and I have been growing our business over the past 11 years, there have been times, especially in the beginning, where we would take on clients that turned into time-sucking vortexes of frustration. Not every customer is a good one. The customer really isn’t always right, and it might be time to let some of your existing customers follow through on their threats to leave. But how does one… View this post

    This article is provided by PreSonus.   The significance of balanced and unbalanced connections between audio devices, as well as the meaning of the terms, is often misunderstood. A balanced output can be designed, constructed, and connected in many ways, and there are several ways in which balanced and unbalanced devices can be interconnected. Balanced connections have a long history that dates back to the early days of telephony. The phone company runs thousands of miles of unshielded cable between… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   With the rise of personal monitor mixers, the Sunday morning sound tech has had to worry less and less about the monitor mix for the musicians.  However, there are still a large number of churches which either do not have personal monitor mixers on stage. Or, only some musicians have personal mixers and some musicians like the vocalist still have their monitors controlled at front of house. One very compelling reason to… View this post
