    Revisiting Performance Enhancing Tech

    Trent Reznor sums this thread all up at the end there. Also, Paul Mccartney fronting Nirvana!? And I love how Pat Smear is starstruck. So unbelievably cool. Thank you for sharing that! I knew Sound City gave birth to Fleetwood Mac, but all that history was amazing. That Neve has to be...

    WHOA. That's amazing. I'm like halfway through.

    Cue lights... RF or cabled or what?

    So not cue lights as we would think of them in this context, but I've recently discovered Tally Arbiter which is some really clever software created to work with tally lights on video cameras. I've wondered if it could be also adapted for use as a cue light. It does allow OSC commands to fire...

    Revisiting Performance Enhancing Tech

    Punctuation is important. Anyway, I was listening to Nirvana's "From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah" and getting some nostalgia on. I can recall being a kid and going to shows and the sound being so different than album and radio play. But the energy was different. It soon became apparent...

    Revisiting Performance Enhancing Tech

    A guy I knew in college was friends with one of the engineers that worked on a few Chicago Symphony Orchestra albums. He told me the amount of editing that goes into those albums is nothing short of what you might expect from the likes of Kanye West or Taylor Swift. Modern orchestral recording...

    Revisiting Performance Enhancing Tech

    I think this captures the gist of my feelings. It's questionable when it's used in place of correcting musical errors. Vocalists are notorious for not being able to read music. The act of singing I think is much more challenging to relate to written notation just because it is so internal and...

    Revisiting Performance Enhancing Tech

    So prior to posting, I did some searching and found that it has been a minute since this topic has come up. Back in the 90's, Antares Autotune was a nascent technology and Cher's scandalous reveal of what could be considered a liberal artistic use of it was a topic of no lack of controversy...

    Sending Audio to ATEM for Recording

    One thing we discovered in the transition to the streaming age was that a vast majority of stream viewers watch on phones and tablets. I'm guessing the majority of them are also using the device speakers and not $200 ear pods or whatever too. Clarity over quality for online audio IMHO. Both...

    What might cause this Fog Machine behavior

    I don't know if the design might be similar, but I had a hazer do that. The vaporizer chamber was two pieces of aluminum with a gasket in the middle. The gasket was toasted and just pouring fluid out the sides.

    Sending Audio to ATEM for Recording

    The promo shot of the new mini that's about 10' long is hysterical. I thought it was a Babylon Bee article at first. The most amusing thing about the ATEM is that it plays so nice with their remote app and Companion software with a streamdeck, I very rarely actually touch the thing when...

    Sending Audio to ATEM for Recording

    The ATEM line is really amazing. You get a lot of switcher for the price, but my biggest complaint with all of them is there's not really a great way to monitor the audio output outside of bodging together something from the HDMI out. Or bypassing their internal mixing altogether and pre-mixing...

    Sending Audio to ATEM for Recording

    1000% what @Malabaristo and @DaveySimps already said. It sounds like you're dealing with some kind of ATEM mini (pro/iso). If you can find out what they're recording to, that might help. Best case it's something like a laptop running OBS. In that case you can stick a pair of headphones on...

    Tracking Wagons on a Budget

    So we could screw into the deck and put down the bullnose channel to "gudie" the wagons. We had straight casters on it and despite our best efforts we found that the wagon liked to move up and down stage as it rolled back and forth. I don't think you could install just a channel and expect...

    malpractice?

    I wonder how Shure feels about it.

    malpractice?

    I gotta wonder what lead them to bodge it into a 57 skeleton instead of just using the collete as is? Kinda like putting an LS1 into a VW bus.
