Tricks of the Trade: USING LAVALIER MICROPHONES. I was born in England, and my mum was always asking me if I needed to use the "lav," so when I was asked to write some thoughts about "using lavs," I couldn't help but laugh.

Tricks of the Trade: USING LAVALIER MICROPHONES

But using lav microphones can be a scary business. The idea of strapping a transmitter onto a performer and listening to the person sing through a tiny electret microphone pinned to their chest area can be exciting and terrifying. A LITTLE LAV HISToRYSony's ECM-50 provided my first experiences using lavalier microphones. The ECM-50 was placed on the chest, tie, lapel, bra and sometimes collar of the actor's coat. This mic position never suffered from sweat or hat reflection problems, it only suffered from sounding...bad. Later, I was the mixing engineer working on Evita in London, where we had really stepped up to the plate, using six (!) Along with the popular Sennheiser MKE-2 came the commonly referred-to "head microphone" or "ear microphone. " B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier.

Sweat Protection - TheatreFace. No matter how much time you've invested in setting up your wireless mic systems - planning layout, tuning frequencies, tweaking gain structure, EQing actors, never mind making your system sound good - it's all for not if you loose a mic mid performance due to a sweat out.

Chapter 4 of the Care and Feeding of Wireless Mics... Sweat Protection - TheatreFace

As mentioned in an earlier chapter, the two areas most susceptible to sweat are at the connection of the mic transmitter (or belt pack) and the lavaliere element, and the head of the lavaliere element that contains the mic itself. Most of the time, some medical tape and good placement are enough - but not always.

Here are some low cost "sweat preventative" measures for the lavaliere itself. Most lavaliere style elements come with a wind screen. Us pro al1532 theater guide ea.

Dr Adam Stark is the co-founder of the interactive arts technology studio Codasign and a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London. He is interested in developing new ways to create music through interactive technology. In particular, he wants to make electronic music performative and engaging to watch on stage, working with artists and musicians to integrate interactive technologies into their shows and installations.

He has been interested in music since childhood, growing up playing in bands in and around London. In 2002 he chose to study Computer Science at Royal Holloway, University of London, spending those years equally divided between learning how to develop technology and writing & performing music with other students. He later went on to study for a MSc in Digital Music Processing at Queen Mary University of London, specialising on audio effects that can automatically detect the tempo of performing musicians.

String orchestra: sound reinforcement. Hi there, A few days ago I had the chance to listen to a string orchestra playing outdoors in a sort of small square. I have done a few gigs before like this and in this case not doing the gig learnt quite a bit about the problems that I have had before when being the person in charge of doing the job. The point is that the same problems occurred in this occasion and that the PA technician who did the job (a better professional than myself, presumably) didn't sort out these problems or didn't even hear them. Maybe there is someone here who can give me some tips about how to solve these problems.

So that you have an idea, going to try to describe the setup. Being outdoors and being quite a noisy place with people just walking by not paying attention to the concert, I think it was a good idea to spot mike and locate the mikes quite close to the instruments so to avoid all the noise around. The problems that I heard where the following: - Then, the dynamics were also problematic. Best,

It's becoming par for the course these days - at least in some venues - to arrive at a theatre and pop a set of headphones over your ears, or watch actors wearing headphones, speaking words fed to them down a wire. Andrew Haydon believes "lip-synching and the use of the recorded voice has become the new kitchen sink". I agree, sort of. Like Andrew, I've spent the past fortnight watching shows that illustrate theatre's current infatuation with headphones, microphones and recording devices.

Until 15 or 20 years ago, sound design was still very much viewed as a technical skill.
