Mixers

Acoustic Resonance uses digital mixers. These offer a rich range of functionality to help get the sound right without the need for separate effects racks. This simplifies setup, saving time and money.

Mixing is best done from the centre of the space where the audio engineer can hear what the audience is hearing. However, it is not always practical to situate the mixing console in this position and run cables from and to the stage, especially for small jobs. A digital mixer offers the option of using an iPad to control the mixer remotely over wi-fi.

If I am using this option, I supply my own hub.

Recording

Acoustic Resonance can do this easily – up to 24 channels. You can then be provided with a simple stereo mix, or the raw .wav files to mix down. I can recommend a professional studio that can help you with this if you wish.

Microphones

Microphones are a key component in getting the sound right. There are some industry standards for live work, such as the Shure SM58 and SM57, but they are not always the most appropriate choice. Acoustic Resonance maintains a stock of  different microphones – both condenser and dynamic, on which to draw for each situation to get the best result.

Guitar Amplifiers

If you need to play electric guitar, Acoustic Resonance can provide a great-sounding older valve amp or a more contemporary solid state amp to suit your needs.
