    Managing wireless audio systems at football games is notoriously challenging. There are critical coach communication channels, referee mics, and ENG sideline systems that crowd out a lot of useable RF spectrum. Hawaii-based Custom Audio, Inc. has been working the NFL Pro Bowl for many years and specializes in production sound, corporate video, as well as installation projects for commercial, educational, and government clients. For this year’s Pro Bowl, Custom Audio turned to RFvenue’s Diversity Fin remote antenna for rock-solid signal… View this post

    For the second consecutive year, all of the artists and bands who performed using in-ear monitors during the 55th Annual Grammy Awards used Shure PSM 1000 personal monitor systems. “I love using Shure PSM 1000 on all my shows, especially high profile shows like the Grammys,” says Michael Parker, one of the monitor engineers for the broadcast. “Excellent sound quality and solid RF are easily achieved when using the [PSM]1000s.” Country-pop superstar Taylor Swift opened the show with her hit… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Last week, I was called into a church to resolve a wireless microphone problem. Over the phone, it sounded like an easy fix. Once I got there, that’s when the real trouble started. “If I can re-create the problem then I can fix the problem.” Those are the words I’ve used throughout my life. Whether it was a computer problem, electrical problem, or audio problem, if I could re-create the problem,… View this post

    When a company has a great vocal microphone, the first question is “where’s the wireless version?” After Earthworks released the SR40V hypercardioid vocal microphone a year or so ago, that very question soon arose – both from users and wireless manufacturers. The result is the WL40V vocal head for handheld wireless transmitters. Integral to completing the project was a significant technological challenge: how to retain the microphone’s frequency range, transient response, and other audio characteristics when a wireless link is… View this post

    British RF engineer Barry Macleod has had a long and distinguished career in rock ‘n’ roll, looking after wireless systems at major international events such as Live 8 and Live Earth, as well as a plethora of BRIT Awards and MTV Awards ceremonies. I recently spoke with him about his latest project, the touring version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar (JCS), which will hit U.S. arenas in the coming months. Paul Watson: The JCS tour required 50 channels… View this post

    Remote recording is exhilarating. Musicians, excited by the audience, often put on a stellar performance. Usually you only get one chance to get it recorded, and it must be done right. It’s on the edge, but by the end of the night, especially if everything has gone as planned – what a great feeling! Challenges abound. Monitors can feed back and/or leak into the vocal microphones, coloring the sound. Bass sound can leak into the drum mics, and the drums… View this post
