oar-20.jpgO.A.R. UNPLUGS WITH SHURE

As a touring band, Of a Revolution (or O.A.R. as it is more commonly known) is still a campus favorite. Formed in 1996 by frontman Marc Roberge and drummer Chris Culos, the band took root within college life in its early years, penning hit songs based on the collective experiences of its members at Ohio State University, and growing on the strength of online distribution and word-of-mouth alone. more

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Swings’ Into Monterey This August, Using Earthworks’ High Definition Microphones(tm)

img_0238sm.jpgMilford, NH, June 16, 2009–Earthworks, manufacturer of High Definition MicrophonesTM, announced that Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (BBVD) is continuing to support the release of its latest album, How Big Can You Get?: The Music of Cab Calloway on the road, bringing Earthworks’ High Definition MicrophonesTM along for the ride. The high-voltage swing outfit, which plays everything from large halls to outdoor venues, relies on the Earthworks PianoMicTM at each of its gigs to capture its unique Honky Tonk tone.

How Big Can You Get?: The Music of Cab Calloway was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios at Hollywood and Vine and is BBVD’s musical tribute to the master of swing, Cab Calloway. The group’s elaborate touring ensemble includes a nine-piece instrument section consisting of horns and percussion; having so many live instruments on stage can present unique challenges to live sound engineers–particularly around instrument bleed and feedback. more

Wireless Conference Solutions: Infrared (IR) versus Radio Frequency (RF)

The fully digital infrared conferencing system can digitally process audio and data transmission.

For either permanent installations or for temporary use in various applications, IR (infrared) vs. RF (radio frequency) is usually a topic to question when deciding on the more appropriate technology. Whether we are talking about push to talk conference systems or simultaneous interpretation both IR and RF are used to transmit audio and data. In some cases it is simple to choose between the two because the client must have an IR system for security purposes. If there is not a preference from the client, generally people feel that RF is a much easier technology to use because it extremely simple to setup. While IR does take a bit more time to setup it offers benefits that may be time well spent. more
