KGV College Music Technology Live Sound Basics 06 Connecting the amplifiers to the FOH speakers

A brief introduction to connecting the amplifiers to the FOH (Front of House) speakers at KGV College Southport.
andrew beavers's insight:

good video for showing people who are beginners to hook up their amps to front out house speakers. it explains the different cables and defines terms for beginners who might not have experience.

 

Pro: very easy to follow along for beginners 

 

con: not a lot of information and you will need to learn more before you can create good live sound.

This was an awesome tutorial from an experienced sound engineer Brent Carpenter. Brent is the onstage mix engineer with the band Rush. He has 19 years experience. He certainly knows what he's talking about. He goes over in depth the software he uses as well as the how to hone in on the best radio frequencies to use.

This video is an overview of the process that UE uses to create their custom in-ear monitors.  It walks the viewer through their factory and through each step of the creation process from start to finish.

 

Insight:  If anyone was wondering why in-ear monitors cost so much money this would be a good video to watch.  It would also be a good video for anyone trying to decide if they want to purchase in-ear monitors.

 

Pros:  Sculpted to fit the users ear, personal monitors mix directly into the ear buds,  cancels all outside noise, light weight, highly reliable

 

Cons: Very expensive compared to the price of headphones or ear-buds (However, much better than the alternative), can only be used by the person they are made for, if they are lost new ones must be made, however UE saves every ear mold they make so a new mold won't need to be made.

This was a great video showing how the Ultimate Ears Custom In-Ear Monitors are made.

Watching this video really re iterates why this company is in the for front in this field. Todd Lansinger the senior manager of manufacturing did a very good job walking us through the complete fabrication of the individual ears. He also explained how what they do effects the musician's ability to hear better on stage. Very impressive process.
