    Just for fun, mixing timelapse

    It's interesting to see oneself mixing in a timelapse like this. The video shows me mixing a 2-hour musical at a youth summer camp, condensed into two minutes. Perhaps the video is fun for someone else, also :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVJgUaKNS7Y

    Looking for new ideas for routing foldback signals, theatre/musical, etc.

    Hi all. When letting the band hear the wireless mics in their foldback, just using the typical method of tapping all the wireless channels into whatever wedges/ears via AUXes often leaves the solos at a good Level, but makes the choruses where everybody chimes in too powerful. I sometimes...

    Networking wireless receivers and transmitters (control data only, no digital audio)

    Hi guys. Looking for some input now that I'm just getting started in the process of networking my company's wireless gear. We are talking about UHF-R receivers and ULX-D receivers as well as Sennheiser EW 300 G3 receivers and EW 300 IEM G3 transmitters. The plan of attack so far is: 1)...

    Paralleling DC voltages to/from wireless mic reciever. Should I worry?

    hey guys, looking for some opinions on this: Here's the deal: Sennheiser EW 300 G3 receivers. They can be DC fed via a "wall wart" PSU feeding DC into a dedicated jack on the back of the unit. They can also receive their DC voltage via the BNC antenna connections, typically from an antenna...

    Clever way to interconnect networked devices?

    I have ever heard mention of this in a pro audio setting before, so here goes: I was browsing at a consumer electronics store and saw network routers made specifically to use the power cables in a house to interconnect devices in the house on one network. First of all, it left me with the...

    Combining many devices on one network

    Provided one is willing to put all one's bets on one horse: How feasible is it to run several computers at FOH, connected to several types of gear close to stage, over one network cable between the two locations? Many companies are starting to use more and more gear that has RJ45 ports for one...

    Anyone own and/or use QSC CSM-monitors.

    Wow. These look amazing with the variable angle feet, adjustable dispersion, semingly true pro specs AND a pole mount. But pricy by the time the whole package is aquired with PL380s, black box DSP, etc, etc. Any real-life experiences out there? QSC - Concert Stage Monitor Systems Edit...

    Actually impressed with a reality TV show.

    Anyone see that Bar Rescue show with that incredibly obnoxious host? That guy rubs me the wrong way in almost every regard, even if he seems to know his way around the food and beverage industry. Anyway. In an episode I saw today, they actually focused on stuff like the band, acoustics...

    Does this product exist?

    Walking around a department store looking at all the LED replacement bulbs for regular household lightbulbs I got to thinking: Any pro replacements that will slip right into existing fixtures? I realize a 1kW PAR 64 is out of reach for now, but how about all those DMX-controlled fixtures with...

    Some truth about investment and growth

    This was part of an answer in the "big line array investment"-thread currently going on in the Varsity section. I decided to post it here instead. A lateral move can be a good move sometimes. Growth isn' always the appropriate move (Why does everyone need to "grow" anyway, are we this...

    The toilet break thread

    Inspired by the shower-thread. It amazes me that even though most humans in the western world use a toilet several times each day, it still seems so difficult for people who build and maintain public spaces to make functional toilet areas. Here's my "dream list" of how a toilet break works. Is...
