The following is an expanded version of the cover story for Pro Sound News, November 2014.
On September 30, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released two NPRMs (Notice of Proposed Rulemaking), one proposing amendments to Part 15 of its rules, significantly affecting unlicensed wireless operations in the 600 MHz band, and a second intended to promote replacement wireless microphone spectrum access outside the 600 MHz band. The proposals eliminate the two 6 MHz TV channels currently set aside for licensed mic operators, replacing them with a 4 MHz chunk of the so-called duplex gap that is chiefly intended for ENG crew use.

When Scandinavian director Antonio Tublen’s 2013 film LFO came across my desk, I wasn’t sure what to expect—the film’s synopsis gives you a brief idea of where the story is headed, with a introverted scientist experimenting with sound waves until he makes an astonishing discovery, only to have his experiment unravel out of his control. But even with that description, I was expecting more of an evil-experiment-gone-wrong scenario versus the psychological themes of morality and megalomania centered around this lonely main character.

Among the business affected was Napa’s City Winery, an upscale restaurant and opera house in the heart of wine country, which had only recently installed a new Meyer Sound System to its historic, 350-seat, cabaret-style venue.

PAR has recently launched “PAR-Tube,” our new video initiative that commences our move into the future. The digital revolution has just begun and modern life has barely started to change. That change will spell the end to publishing as we know it and meanwhile, Pro Audio Review will not sit still. Time will prove that expert advice is valuable in whatever medium it inhabits and it looks like web-based video will ultimately be a big part of how we continue to supply our readership with crucial guidance. Rest assured that the value of PAR will not diminish, but grow into an even healthier pro audio product review mechanism for our publishing company, NewBay Media.

From The Beatles' Abbey Road to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon to his own hit albums, legendary producer/engineer/musician Alan Parsons has made his mark on music history. In recent times, however, when he hasn’t been mixing at one desk, he’s been typing at another, co-writing The Art and Science of Sound Recording, an in-depth book on the entire music production process. Parsons and his co-author, Julian Colbeck, sat down with PSN at the 137th AES Convention for a spirited chat on mentoring, EQ'ing overheads and why George Harrison took too long to record guitar solos.

Legendary recording engineer Bruce Swedien might be best known for his work with Michael Jackson—he recorded all of the late singer’s prime solo work, including the best-selling album of all-time, Thriller—but to stop there would sell him short. Having recorded literally dozens of other household names, won five Grammy wins and received 13 nominations, the man has a heck of a lot of knowledge, and that in turn led him to write three books to date—including his latest book/DVD set, The Bruce Swedien Recording Method, which we chatted about in this interview during the recent AES Convention.
