    Sound mapping/planning software help!

    Don't know how complicated you need it to be, but this has been working for me for really basic 2d audio flowcharts and equipment layouts: Dia a drawing program

    5.1 done right in a multi-use space

    Sorry not to get back to this right away. Thanks for the input. Really helpful! I think the Denon preamp is the way to go, going into a Matrix DSP along with the main board. Besides getting the actual infrastructure tight, I really want things to be as close to single button operation...

    5.1 done right in a multi-use space

    Hey All, So I took over a TD position in a theater which has completed a lot of renovation, but due to lack of funding and attention, still has a lot of things that need work. One is the 5.1 surround that was installed. It's a little funky-although I'm certainly not complaining-being made up...

    Yes, they're on an xlr connector. Neither of your links are working for me.

    Reflecting sound for "canned" orchestra!

    I'm curious what is supposed to happen with this technique. Specifically what process or mechanism would generate this effect. My feeling--and this is by no means quantified--is that simply reorienting the speakers can't give the effect of a live orchestra. Beyond not actually enhancing the...

    Reflecting sound for "canned" orchestra!

    I've just been lurking for a while, but this post made me want to jump in with a "what the hell"? I'm all for experimenting, but this doesn't seem like a prudent use of time. You're saying that by using these panels, you hope to somehow recreate the "feel" of a live orchestra, but I can't...

    Interesting jack on an interesting speaker

    The pics are kind of blurry, but it looks like edison to me.

    Mic feedback

    As far as last ditch efforts go, I'd throw in a feedback eliminator rather than a limiter. Obviously, using either of these things can be avoided with good placement and EQ technique which would be my primary focus in dealing with an issue like this. Although, I realize what section this is...

    MIPRO Mics - Good or Bad

    See and that's the issue with budgeting and buying equipment. It's not as easy as just meeting an immediate budget, but calculating down the road as well. This is something people don't do very often and why often, in the long run, people spend a lot more than they need to. Churches and schools...

    MIPRO Mics - Good or Bad

    Being in a heavy use environment would be my exact reasoning for getting a more expensive Shure or Senn product. I wouldn't want to continually be replacing units because they can't stand up to that kind of use. I suppose it comes down to user experience. In a high-use environment with...

    MIPRO Mics - Good or Bad

    How do you know they're high quality? If you do already, why come here and ask? I've never heard of these and they appear to be a cheapo knockoff sort of brand, but that's just my impression. Unless someone else here can vouch for them, I suggest just renting a small package and running them...

    Shotgun Speakers

    Individual line array boxes are very wide in the horizontal coverage pattern and very narrow in the vertical. This narrowing of vertical dispersion (see the linked article above) increases the more boxes you stack on one another. So your SD was correct in using one to get wide coverage. Keep in...
