    One of the main causes of RF (radio frequency) interference is intermodulation products created by our own wireless equipment. In this piece, I will outline some of the common setup and handling errors that contribute to this problem. First up is increased noise floor and intermodulation (intermod or IM) products due to transmitters being in very close proximity. If you work with a single band and just put mics up on stands every day, you might not encounter this. But… View this post

    Shure wireless microphone systems, wired mics, and in-ear monitoring systems were a near-constant presence at last Sunday’s 57th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, which features 23 live musical performances. As usual, musicians were permitted to use their preferred microphones for their performances. Although artists brought their own custom earphones, all in-ear monitoring systems were Shure PSM1000, with 24 channels split between two stages, marking the fourth consecutive year that the Grammy production team chose Shure… View this post

    What are generally categorized as “miniature” microphones come in three basic configurations: lavalier, headworn and suspended. As someone who does a lot of corporate shows and events, I’ve got quite a bit experience with all three types. Lavalier mics (“lavs”) can be attached to clothing (usually via a clip) or hidden in costumes, hats and even hair (usually for theatrical performances) to pick up vocals without being visually distracting. They come in wired versions but are far more commonly are… View this post
