Toning Your Sound System

No this is NOT a typo. I did not mean to write “Tuning your sound system” because that is entirely a different subject. So what is the difference between toning and tuning?  Here is a simple example from the muscial side: This is my son Simon. He has a guitar effects pedal that has exactly […]

This is a highly informative  – and realistic – short video on the how a system optimization engineer and FOH engineer relate in their job roles. We have Bennet Prescott to thank for this. I only wish I had done it myself.

Your call is very important to us……. please hold the line and the next available agent

Oh yeah. That would be me. A month on the road teaching and tuning. Great fun. Lots of new data. Lots of new people. Totally wiped out and exhausted. And piles of things on the “to-do” list. Some of them life necessities, like surgery for my wife, some of them luxuriens like a brand new […]
