leading concert tours, front-of-house engineers discuss how they are
incorporating software-based effects into building the dynamics of a show.

February 2009 is just around the corner, and with the decreased space
allocation in the UHF spectrum brought on by the FCC sell-off, wireless
operators throughout the production world are trying to figure out how to
keep the shows going. Representatives from leading manufacturers will
discuss the steps they’ve taken to ensure a smooth transition, and system
designers will propose setups to ensure a clear, dropout-free production.

Nothing beats the energy of live performance, yet artists, producers and
engineers must often try to re-create the feel in post-production. Find out
how engineers from houses of worship and top-flight touring productions are
making use of mic techniques, digital audio workstations and the latest in
dynamics plug-ins to capture the “true” feel of a high-energy show.
