Signal To Noise, Episode 254: An End-Of-Spring Check-In On A Variety Of Recent Sonic Adventures

A trip to Texas to help with a loudspeaker demo, stories and thoughts from a busy month of out-of-town jobs, including a massive multi-city corporate event, a major show mishap that made an online "AV Rigging Disasters" page, and more.

It’s time for an end-of-spring check-in, as Andy and Sean sit down at the microphones in Episode 254 to catch up on everything they’ve been up to the last month. Sean talks about his trip to Texas to help with a loudspeaker demo for RCF and gives Andy and the listeners a follow-up on his adventures in freewire DSP from a couple episodes ago. Meanwhile, Andy shares some stories and thoughts from a busy month of out-of-town jobs, including a massive multi-city corporate event, a major show mishap that made an online “AV Rigging Disasters” page, and mixing monitors for a huge concert at the Kennedy Center. Some of the tech tips that come up this week include using Unity Connect for passing Dante audio over the internet, and the power of the latest generation of noise reduction processors. This episode is sponsored by Allen & Heath and RCF.

Andy and Sean also spend a bit of time talking about finding gigs and evaluating resumes — specifically when being an audio “Renaissance person”/jack of all trades is a good thing, and when it’s not.
