Start At the Source | Miking Vocals Onstage

Jul 1, 2011, By Eddie Mapp

Reproducing the human voice in a concert situation can range from extremely easy (throw up the fader and go) to quite complex, depending on a number of situations surrounding the vocal. Are you mixing a soft-spoken singer, an aggressive rock group with multiple lead vocalists, or a pop artist whose crowd comprises 20,000 young teenage girls screaming at SPL levels higher than anything you’d ever want to compete with mixing-wise? In all of these environments, getting the vocal out there and on top is key to your mix. ...

FixIt: Cage the Elephant Monitor Engineer Jay Rigby

Jun 1, 2011

All of the guys have wedges in front of them, but the guys who wear ears use them for kick drum and that kind of thing. I like having them on individual controls [on the DiGiCo SD8] so when I’m switching between the two, it’s not blasting out of the wedges. Funny thing, too, but the guys have noticed! At rehearsals in Nashville, the first time I mixed the band on the SD8—the first day, right off the bat—the one guitar player looked over to me, and said, “Something’s different.”...

Live: New York City Theater Goes 5.1

May 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Last year, The Victory Theater’s audio system (originally installed in 1995) began to show its age. The theater’s director of production, David Jensen, consulted with Anthony Nittoli (principal designer with Akustiks, LLC), who had supervised the ’95 install. Says Jensen, “Anthony maintained his consultant relationship with the theater over the years, and I was fortunate to ‘inherit’ him when I came onboard in 2001. In addition to performing annual systems service, he has also used the new Victory as a lab for systems testing. He knows this venue better than anyone.” ...
