By Bill Evans / March 19, 2017

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, […]

“Do You Read the Manuals For All This Stuff

By Bill Evans / July 18, 2016

In 1980, Cubby Colby was a monitor engineer working with Kansas and Heart. He got a call out of nowhere that would change the arc of his career and his life and lead to him spending a decade and nine tours with a guy almost no one had heard of–at least then–out of Minneapolis.   […]

“Choose Wisely”

By Robert Scovill / June 27, 2016

BY ROBERT SCOVILL Now, not to get all “Cosmic Johnny” on you here, but I’m going on the record. I’m a dyed in the wool Libra. Yep, the tipping scales … For me, it always has been, and always will be, about striving for and creating balance in my life. There are more examples of […]

Who’s Really Running the Show?

By Pooch / May 14, 2016

BY KEN “POOCH” VAN DRUTEN In business, money talks.  And the music business is just that… a business. When we are talking about the live event industry, money has always been king, but over the past five (or maybe 10) years, money has taken a sinister front seat to the point that NOTHING else matters.  […]
