    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   In the world of sports, great teams win championships. Sure there can be the debate that teams like the New York Yankees or Miami Heat capture titles because they “buy” talent, but even those teams don’t win every time. That is because the team that best uses its talents from top to bottom is ultimately the one that wins. The analogy doesn’t change much in business. Companies with great talent that works… View this post

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   In part 1, we covered what voltage is and a bit on how it’s measured. Here let’s look at how to use a basic digital voltmeter to measure any power outlet or extension cord for proper voltage. The reason this procedure is so important is that sometimes venues do crazy things with power outlets. For instance. I was teaching a seminar last year in a “gymnatorium” and plugged in my little demo rack… View this post

    Clear-Com has revamped the wireless setup at New York City’s prestigious Juilliard School. The school installed three Tempest900 digital wireless intercoms in its production department and one additional system in its recording department. The two-channel Tempest systems provide coverage within each of the facility’s three performances spaces, operating independently of one another without signal interference. Previously, only one Julliard theater, the Peter Jay Sharp Theater, had a wireless communications system with wired Clear-Com being used in the other production venues.… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Becoming a producer is a very daunting task. A big part of the job is directing musicians and artists, steering them towards a desired sound and performance. You may even be directing yourself. The more you know about the instruments in your chosen style, the more you gain better control of where to steer the project. Carriage For Two Let’s talk for a second about some of the differences between… View this post

    Most of us think we have it together, at least most of the time. We try to have a balance on all things “life” – work, family, time management, enjoying the “little” moments, and so on. It’s all the stuff that you can read about in some magazine found in the check-out line at the grocery store—“How To Get Your Life Together,” or something like that. Then again, if we take a closer look (some of us don’t even have… View this post

    M. Erik Matlock 01/17/14 04:38 PM,
    This article is provided by The Art Of The Soundcheck.   What would you say is the most valuable skill in our industry? I recall a top mix engineer saying that he wants to work with sound team members that have an innate understanding of signal flow and a good attitude. I agree. Absolutely. But, I’d like to add another highly valuable skill: simply, a teachable desire to improve. The definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over… View this post
