As an expert drummer, Mr. Erskine has a good handle on how to control sound as well as the sound isolation issues caused by drums and drumming. This band of students at USC Thornton School of Music posed a new issue for him, though; a classroom of students simultaneously drumming on electronic kits with rubber kick pedal pads still would seemingly be a perfect solution for controlling the preserved noise level for the rest of the building. more

Listen Technologies Dives Into Social Media

Bluffdale, Utah, USA — Listen Technologies Corporation has embraced social media as a means of reaching out to all aspects of the AV industry including end users, dealers, consultants and colleagues. The company is using Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and WordPress blog postings to communicate news, ideas, product information, events, customer stories and more.
