    Could silver sequins be causing microphone reception issues?

    I checked for intermod and I'm all clear in that regard, and they're not so old that they're VHF. I did test the pack on myself outside of any costumes and I had no issues there. I have a feeling that the culprit is static since it's only in this situation that I'm having these reception issues...

    Could silver sequins be causing microphone reception issues?

    I'm having reception issues with an actor's wireless lav that I think may be due to a sequin dress she's wearing. The fact that the mics are older models and that she's wearing 3 other layers of clothes for quick changes doesn't help either, but I have a feeling that the issue is with the sequin...

    College Sound Designer Traveling Out of State for Summer Stock

    I've got an Android phone, although I do have a small collection of sound tool apps. I don't rely on them too heavily since their accuracy can be questioned, but they work in a pinch! I've got Sound Meter (another quick and dirty SPL meter), FrequenSee (a real-time frequency analyzer), and...

    College Sound Designer Traveling Out of State for Summer Stock

    Yes! Good call! I do have a bag of various audio connecters, including a cable for an iPod/phone. I forgot to add that in! I also keep a baggy of guitar picks in it because I work a lot of concerts here at school. A decent but affordable SPL meter is something that I've been meaning to invest in...

    College Sound Designer Traveling Out of State for Summer Stock

    Thanks for the advice! I've been looking at pelican cases off and on for a while but haven't pulled the trigger because of the price. Are there any cases in particular you can recommend for tools specifically? I know there are a variety of different types for different applications.

    DIY Passive to Active Speakers

    It is though. it'll cost me $30-$40 to repair a pair of really nice speakers that were over $100 new. And there's really no trouble. Im very savvy with electronics and Speakers and the repairs would take no time at all.

    Installs Help with Monitor Send Setup

    I personally don't mind cables strewn about. A lot of the time when I do gigs with some local bands, there's cables everywhere!! But for this show, we've got large, heavy platforms going in and out, and I can't risk losing a monitor in the middle of a show. Plus we don't have a stage box. We...

    Installs Help with Monitor Send Setup

    I'll be working monitors for this show so I'll know to plug it in. And yeah we're rather OCD about our labels. We did this for some xlr ports because we got a 7piece audix drum mic kit last year so we needed more ports on the back wall.
