By Robert Scovill / November 11, 2015

  If you’re a regular follower of my blogs, then you know I’ve been on hiatus for some time now with regard to my blogging efforts. My apologies … a certain manufacturer of live sound mixing consoles has dominated my focus over the past few months. It’s good to be back though! I hope these […]

NAB: Console Wars v 2.0

By Bill Evans / April 22, 2015

Lead Vocal Compression   Let’s face it folks, the lead vocal is the most important part of a live performance, at least as far a pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop or any show with a lead vocalist show goes. Granted if you’re mixing Yo Yo Ma then obviously the cello becomes your lead instrument but for […]

Sonnet Technologies Echo Express Thunderbolt Chassis

By Pooch / November 3, 2013

Stuff just keeps getting smaller. Not all that long ago, recording a gig meant calling in a totally separate company with their own engineers and a whole truck full of gear. Then it became a rack or two of stuff and maybe one extra guy on the crew. And lately, it is just another hat […]
