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 […]

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, […]

Getting “That Journey Sound” With Josh and Meaux

By Bill Evans / October 22, 2015

Every gig has it’s own set of challenges and pressure. It could be personalities. Rock stars are not known for being the most stable bunch. It could be time. I remember talking with crew for the Roger Waters The Wall tour. It was a 12-hour in and a 4-hour out. And they were doing back […]

So… Unions… Love ’em Or Hate ’em?

By Bill Evans / May 22, 2015

BY GEOFF LISSAMAN   Personally I’m not such a fan and recent experiences just seem to reinforce that. But before I tell the story I guess some background is needed.   It has been close to 20 years that I’ve been living/working in the USA.  I don’t think I say “Eh?” much anymore and have […]

Getting the Gig Right Starts Early

By Bill Evans / April 24, 2015

The great thing about teaching is that it helps one organize their thoughts into cohesive ideas. The other day, while I was imparting my vast storehouse of knowledge to some up and coming engineers, I mentioned that there are a few different approaches to creating a live mix and for the most part, barring any […]
