I should probably address Riotfest first, in case you are not familiar with it. Go to riotfest.org. Check out the schedule. Got the gist? Cool. Second, you may notice that many of the acts mentioned below are of a certain…”vintage,” I’ll say. Most of the musicians on stage were no longer skinny, youthful punks. But I don’t think anyone who saw these “vintage” acts would contend that they were old. Sure, many people player were in their forties, some even older, but that doesn’t matter because in the end you still left these venues with …tagsAnti-FlagHigh On FireJello BiafraJello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of MedicineMighty Mighty BosstonesRiot FestRiot Fest 2010SM58Torche

I have seen what must be a thousand terrible to mediocre bands in my short time on this world. I don’t mean to be disparaging in that. Not every band can be great. Not every band gets it.

I had been speaking with Cage The Elephant‘s front of house engineer Bruce Wheeler on the phone since we brought the band on as endorsers at about this time last year. We never met face to face, so that …tagsCage The ElephantCharter One PavilionFang IslandmicrophoneNortherly IslandSM58Stone Temple Pilots

The following article is an excerpt from Shure Notes, Issue #44. It’s not … working. Everyone’s had this problem in all of its flavors. We turned again to our panel of performers, producers and sound engineers to share their solutions. The band is too loud and the sound is harsh and thin. Can EQ or other processors be used to produce better overall sound? ALEX DEL ZOPPO: “That’s what comes to my mind, but only after the band itself does some of the work.

The following article is an excerpt from Shure Notes, Issue #27. When we decided to devote this issue to dispelling common audio myths and legends, we had no trouble impaneling a group of experts. Culled mostly from Shure’s Applications Engineering Group, these individuals devote their days, and sometimes their nights, to setting the record straight. Chief among this talented group is Tim Vear, who served as our primary mythbuster and spokesperson. Myth #1: A louder microphone is a better microphone. False. Some microphones are more sensitive than others but microphone sensitivity is not inherently related …
