Given that women have better hearing than men and also comprise more than half the professional workforce in the U.S., you’d think they’d be better represented in the pro audio world. That’s not the case yet, but SoundGirls.Org, founded in 2013, is helping change that situation. To find out more, we sat down with website co-founder Michelle Sabolchick Pettinato.

Remember B-Side Studio, that wacky 1970s sitcom about a struggling Chicago recording studio? No? Well, maybe that’s because it wasn’t really a hit. Or a TV show. Or made in the Seventies. No, actually it was a series of plays performed in the style of Seventies comedies at Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts—and now it’s an eight-episode sitcom on YouTube.

One of the first studio engineers in England to break through into producing, Glyn Johns worked with the greatest acts of the Classic Rock era, recording many of their best-known albums. The sheer number of famous performances that he captured—songs that you hear every day of your life—is remarkable, and as a result, he worked over the years with The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, CSN, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Steve Miller Band, The Clash, Rod Stewart, Neil Young, Joe Cocker and dozens of others, all of who appear in the pages of his new autobiography, Sound Man.

The links go to the full reviews or author interviews so that you can figure out if—just like those lime green sweaters on sale at the Dollar Store—they’re a good idea or not.

Legendary producer/engineer Glyn Johns’ autobiography Sound Man is filled with cool stories about creating classic albums with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Clash, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Neil Young, The Steve Miller Band and many, many more. The tales are fun, but there’s also a lot that audio pros can learn from Johns’ book. Here’s just 10 lessons we took away from Sound Man.

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.
