    As football fans gathered at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and in front of television sets around the world for Super Bowl Sunday, Professional Wireless Systems (PWS), a Masque Sound Company, was on location in New Orleans to provide its expert frequency coordination and RF management for referee microphones, as well as pre-game and halftime entertainment. For the company’s 17th consecutive Super Bowl, PWS once again partnered with ATK Audiotek and Versacom for the big game. Recognizing that preparation is extremely important… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve been having quite a few discussions of late as to what separates great technical artists from, well, less great ones. More specifically, the discussions have focused on the reasons it’s hard to train people to be great tech artists, and why it takes so long. You see, it’s not enough to simply know how to use the gear. In most cases, that’s the easy part. No, the real challenge is to know… View this post

    From December 28th to January 20th, Lennon and McCartney fans were treated to the theatrical concert Hey Jude at Forum in Copenhagen. A spectacular musical and visual treat with lighting design by Jonas Bøgh, the Beatles-inspired show used a host of Martin Professional MAC luminaires, including the new MAC III Wash, with supply by Nordic Rentals. “I needed a very powerful fixture to create an enormous ‘background of light,” explains LD Jonas Bøgh. “At the beginning of the theatre concert… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s an excerpt from The Music Producer’s Handbook regarding a checklist for overdubs. If you want your overdubs to go fast and easy, follow this list. It works every time. Do you have a list of overdub priorities? Do you know which overdubs absolutely must get done and which ones are less important? A list will keep you on track budget-wise and time-wise. Can you record in the control room? Most players… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   The original idea for this article was to write something on getting great vocal production. But as I started formulating the ideas, I realize they kind of apply to music globally. I feel that the basis of great music is fairly simple. Recorded music is a transcription of feelings. Much like how a microphone converts sound waves into electricity, and speakers convert electricity into sound — emotion is converted into… View this post

    Los Angeles, CA-based production sound mixer David Kelson is constantly challenged with the uncontrollable variables that come with his job, including surround noise, digital RF interference and little time for experimentation, which he overcomes with assistance from a range of Lectrosonics wireless products. Having worked in location sound for the TV and film industry since 1982, some of Kelson’s recent projects include The Walking Dead on the AMC network (American Movie Classics) and the TV movie Steel Magnolias, and he… View this post

    Excerpted from the excellent “Make Mine Music” by Bruce Swedien, available from musicdispatch.com. It’s my opinion that after all is said and done, psychoacoustics is really why we are interested in recording music in the first place. Psychoacoustics can be defined simply as the psychological study of hearing. The true aim of psychoacoustic research is to find out how our hearing works. In other words, to discover how sounds entering the ear are processed by the ear and the brain… View this post
