Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G3

Howdy ho everybody! Lately I’ve been hearing people talk about In Ear Monitors (IEM’s) and how complicated they can be. Well, I’m hear to give you my input and solution. I love IEM’s, they give not only the artist a clear representation of what they are hearing, but save you back from carrying all those wedges. I see a lot of bands now in clubs or where ever carry a monitor...[Read More]

Behringer Eurolive ELX Line Array

Hey everyone, JP here! So sorry I missed my typical Monday spew of information, hope you guys aren’t too sad. But today I made a discovery. Flashback to NAMM 2012, Behringer came out with a line array. A LINE ARRAY?! Yes, a line array. Before you start making jokes, they’ve stepped their game up these days. All the new stuff they have came out with is pretty sweet and pretty NON Behrin...[Read More]

Mackie DL iPad Mixer

This past weekend I was the engineer at a small festival. I didn’t prep the gear, I just showed up. Long story short, I got a bad mixer and the output section pretty much blew up. Bad deal huh? So thankfully, the headlining band brought a Mackie DL mixing console. Let me tell you, I’m a believer now. They brought the 16 channel one and it was great. We had a bad mix position, so their ...[Read More]

Midas Mixtender

Howdy ho everyone. As you may know (or not, it’s all good) I’m a large fan of Midas products. Midas could make soap, and I would buy it. But one thing that never impressed me is the app for the pro series consoles. Although it was useful, it wasn’t everything people wanted it to be. BUT OH BOY GUESS WHAT?! They came out with a Mixtender version 1.2. This time, you can have access...[Read More]

QSC KLA

Friends, family, engineers in dark dirty venues that barely see the light of day, I have hope for you. Some of know (or may not know) of the brand  QSC. These audio sleepers are starting to reinvent the way we see powered speakers. When I say powered speakers at my job, people immediately think of Mackie or Behringer, sometimes EV, but nothing like the QSC brand. The throw on the K10’s…...[Read More]

M-Audio Axiom Air 61 – The New Keyboard in the Highly Successful Axiom Series

M-Audio has been leading the way in consumer level MIDI controllers for some time now, and with good reason.

Now there’s a new series of controllers in the M-Audio lineup, and it’s called the Axiom Air line. The 61 key version of the Axiom Air features the use of eight rotary di...[Read More]

Audio and the iPad

Well, I thought I’d take a break from NAMM stuff and do a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. With the release of Behringers new iPad mixers it is becoming more and more apparent that the iPad and tabletcomputers in general are going to have a place in the audio world. Now yes it is true that the iPad is probably not yet capable of handling full Pro Tools sessions with tracks...[Read More]
