Dear SXSW…

By Erik Rogers / March 12, 2018

We’re revisiting on “oldie but goodie” today. Yes, E-Rock, you are officially old enough to be an oldie but a goodie. You’re welcome. Some thoughts on doing a festival that may have started as being all about music, but these days, that particular art form is only important insomuch as it relates to some new […]

Give A Little Bit: Remembering Russel Pope

By Robert Scovill / September 7, 2017

BY ROBERT SCOVILL As my flight out of Phoenix climbs to 10,000 feet on my way back to my cushy hotel room, spacious tour bus and high tech sound system while fulfilling my role as concert sound engineer on the Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers 40th Anniversary tour, I find myself sitting here taking stock […]

Waves FDBK-X Plug-In Review

By spladmin / May 9, 2017

Ok, yeah, this is a gear review. But we need to start with a bit of philosophy. It’s pretty well known that I came to the live sound world via being “the guy in the band who owns the PA.” I’ve done more gigs than I care to think about—both as the bandleader and as […]

By Bill Evans / March 19, 2017

OK, this took way too long to get edited and up online. The Rev. sucks. Happy? A full eight freaking weeks ago, we finally were able to do a video interview thingie that we hope will be the first of a bunch. Las Vegas Sound Guy Lunch. We tried this two years ago and crap […]

Living the Dream

By Robert Scovill / February 25, 2017

BY ROBERT SCOVILL You’re standing in total darkness. Suddenly you hear a huge crowd start cheering wildly. A band starts playing but, oddly, they sound very distant and far away. A spotlight bursts on to you in intense, blinding white light. In an attempt to shelter your eyes you look down only to realize … […]

Road Test: Shure KSM8 Dualdyne Dynamic Handheld Vocal Mic

By Bill Evans / February 5, 2017

By RevBill As we all get over yet another round of NAMM madness, let me tell you how the weeks prior to a show work for us in what still passes for the pro audio press. The embargoed press releases start coming in about three weeks before the show. (For those unfamiliar with the term, embargoed means that […]

“Watson, Can You Hear Me?” 

By Robert Scovill / November 5, 2016

BY ROBERT SCOVILL Okay, I know you’re going to think the following question is totally ridiculous when you read it but, if you’ve been reading my blogs, well, then you know how I roll. So, here it goes. Is there—or should there be—a given “morality” in pro audio manufacturing and the way it is used? See, […]

Playing the Back Nine

By Bill Evans / September 25, 2016

By Martin “Shrek” Frey For those of us unfamiliar with golf-related terminology, “The Back Nine” refers to the second half of play on any typical 18-hole golf course.  Upon completion of “The Front Nine”, golfers then make “The Turn”. At the turn, a quick break for liquid refreshment and perhaps a hotdog and/or snack are […]

Road Test Gear Review: DiGiCo S21

By Neil McVey / August 12, 2016

Editor’s Note: This is one of those rare times when we are going to review a new product more than once. Over the past handful of years, we have seen the digital console world totally upended by the introduction of desks with more power than anyone could even imagine just a decade ago being available […]

Don’t Look Back, You Can Never Look Back

By Bill Evans / August 9, 2016

This will probably be a disjointed mess. There has been a lot on my mind. Some of it audio but most of it loosely connected at best. I’ve been staying—largely—away from Facebook these days. Partially because I spend about 50 hours a week dealing with social media in my “other” life and partially just because, […]
