MAPP Online Pro The ability to predict the performance of a sound system is indispensable to system designers in every application. Meyer Sound combined rigorous scientific techniques and careful, high-resolution measurements with direct input from leading designers and years of experience to produce the MAPP Online Pro acoustical prediction program. Based on a patented method, MAPP Online Pro is a powerful, cross-platform, Java-based application for accurately predicting the coverage pattern, frequency response, impulse response, and maximum SPL output of single or arrayed Meyer Sound loudspeakers. Residing on the user’s local computer, the Java client application facilitates configuring arrays of a wide variety of Meyer Sound products and, optionally, defining the environment in which they will operate, including air temperature, pressure and humidity, as well as the location and composition of surfaces. Most 2D CAD (.DXF) files can be imported directly for accurate venue definition.

The Night That Modern Live Sound Was Born People + Opinion : Artists / Engineers / Producers / Programmers One night in 1970, the Grateful Dead found themselves without a sound system or soundman, and Bob Heil found himself the man of the moment. Dan Daley It's the kind of thing that physicists and palaeontologists dream about: being able to look back and determine the exact moment that a star or a dinosaur came into being. For the contemporary live sound business, that moment was the night of 2nd February 1970 at the Fox Theatre in St. In 1970, the original jam band, the Grateful Dead, were about to take their career to the next level, transitioning from the fuzzily focused psychedelia of the 1960s to the more earthy ur-Americana of Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, both of which were released that year. Owsley, not unexpectedly, was plagued by criminal prosecutions (though in his defence it should be noted that when he began cooking the stuff in 1965 LSD was not yet illegal in the US). Enter Bob Heil The system

VCA, Opto, Vari-Mu, FET compressors… When to use which ? | Quantum Music Mastering As you probably already know, I’m a big fan of analog compressors. I owned several of them in the last few years and I keep rotating and accumulating them in my rack. My objective was to have at the very least one of each kind into my rack, an objective I have accomplished only relatively recently. Being a fanatic of compressors, I was amazed to hear some people ask questions like “Should I buy a LA-2A or a 1176 ?”. The truth is that each type of compression will have a distinctive sound and one of the secret of achieve textures, is by having the right combination of compressors doing the right things. The more I search on the net, the more I realize that people do not master the differences between each compressor and don’t seem to know when to use which and most importantly, WHY? I had this guy who bought one of my 1176 recently. Back to the subject, there are 4 big families of compressors, and I would like to review each of them with you. The limitations: It will always sound “thin”.
