Don’t you just LOVE the sound of that headline? I love it when I hear it from an engineer or artist. In this case, it was most recently from someone who is both! Cliff Goldmacher is and has been a great client of Shure for over 10 years now. When I first met Cliff in Nashville, […]

Contributors: Gino Sigismondi and Doug Totel The hum. The buzz. The crackle. Or no sound at all. While we’re all familiar with the unwanted sound of, let’s say, guitar amp feedback, there are other issues that are a little trickier to identify and eliminate.

Medically, inspiration is the act of breathing in. Creatively, inspiration is the experience of an idea revealing itself. When I say that, every year, listening to the Fantastic Scholastic Recording Competition tracks is like a breath of fresh air, I mean that they inspire me.

For years, audio manufacturers have trumpeted the benefits of noise-cancelling headphones. TV commercials invariably depict stressed-out corporate types struggling to find a piece of Paradise on a transcontinental flight, but … headphones that let sound in?
