LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: On any random day in any random city in America, knock on any random door and ask the person who answers what they know about Rick Springfield. Without fail, you will hear a reference to Springfield’s iconic ’80s hit, “Jessie’s Girl,” but from there things become less predictable. Many people know that Springfield played the character Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime soap opera General Hospital in the early 1980s and then returned to the role a few years ago. What is perhaps least appreciated is the breadth of Springfield’s musical career, which began in the late 1960s in Australia, gained traction in the U.S. during the 1970s, and exploded in a riot of success in the 1980s before the singer/songwriter took a decadal break to help raise his two sons.
In recent years, Springfield has returned to the popular more
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: TransAudio Group has announced the introduction of the Daking FET3, a new dual-channel limiter incorporating Class A discrete compressor circuitry and gain stages that is built in the U.S. by Geoffrey Daking. The FET3 builds on the quality and performance benchmarks set by the renowned Daking FET II single-channel limiter while adding several unique front panel features for enhanced user control.
The Daking FET3 design utilizes the same audio path and detector circuits as the FET II limiter, which has become highly regarded for its speed, high performance and unique ability to sound great on an extraordinary variety of sources. The FET3 adds new variable high-pass filters – from 0 to 200 Hz – at the detector stage to improve and customize the behavior of each limiter channel. Signal content below the user set HPF frequency will not trigger the more
NEW YORK, NEW YORK: TUBE-TECH introduces the new RM 2, a new two-slot rack that vertically accommodates any two TUBE-TECH M Series tube-based modules. The new two RU frame enables the user to own multiple TUBE-TECH modules and one small two-channel rack, offering the sound of TUBE-TECH in a smaller and less expensive package than ever before. The RM-2 is unique in that it is designed from the ground up for tubes.

This new two-slot RM2 rack, along with the existing eight-vertical slot RM8 rack, expands the flexibility of TUBE-TECH while lowering the per channel cost.
The PM 1A module combines an exceptionally smooth sounding microphone preamplifier and direct more

Albuquerque, NM â€“ November 2009â€¦ Land-based artworks are usually installed on the land, but rarely in it. Such was the case, however, on October 3rd, when Yei Ehekatl, a Baltic/Nahuatl tribal artist who makes environmental art using digital photography, video, living grasses, and charred wood was buried 4 feet into the ground as part of a project that explores the physical, spiritual, and cultural meanings of burial. For almost two hours, the amplified sounds of the artistâ€™s heartbeat and breathing were heard in real time throughout the gallery where the performance occurredâ€”thanks to wireless technology from Lectrosonics.
Part of the artistâ€™s ongoing project, Ollin Burial, the performance occurred at THE LAND/gallery, which in conjunction with THE LAND/an art site in nearby Mountainair, NM, are devoted exclusively to site-specific, environmentally low-impact, land-based art. Yei Ehekatl, who is also known as more
