Atiba “T-wizz” Jones is a playback engineer or “Pro Tools Guy”. We’ll let him explain all the details, but it sounds like a dream job! Having the position that I have in a performance, I need to hear what’s going on with clarity and accuracy. Being able to hear exactly what’s being played is essential to correcting any issues or problems that might occur before or during a performance. Can you tell us what a Pro…

Legendary Producer / Writer Barry Rudolph had this to say about Sound Tap Once you turn the unit on, set the smaller Gain control knob so its green LED is lit but without flashing red LEDs, you’re ready to advance the bigger Volume control to whatever volume level you require. I found the sound to be marvelous (even though it has to be mono) and there is a lot of volume level available–louder than I…

From Mix Magazine: UE PRO 18 Review [March 2017 Issue] Listening with the 18+ Pro is luxurious. Like the UE Pro Reference Remastered IEMs, they are well balanced across the frequency range, although a bit more forward in the bottom end.  As a reference for panning, there is nothing better. The stereo picture comes alive both from the isolation and proximity to the ear drum. Transients are crisp quick and well-defined, the bottom end is…

FOH Magazine took the UE 18+ PRO for a spin and liked what they heard: The UE 18+ Pro’s are packed with functions, features and available accessories/options but ultimately, it all comes down to the listening test. Unlike many of the “musician” style in-ears, which may be intended with a bass bump that appeals to drummers and bassists or a huge mid boost that vocalists and guitarists would like, the UE 18+ Pro’s have a…

Dear In-Ear Guy, I really want to jump in and get a pair of UE PRO IEMs, but I can’t for the life of me decided which model to get. Should I just be frugal and get the cheapest one, or break the bank and get the 18s? I looked at the specs and it all makes some sense, but what can I expect to hear? Signed, What’s the scoop? Hey Scoop! Obviously the best…

Why should I replace wedges with in-ears? Becuase lower stage volume is key to a better performance. Lower stage volumes mean better shows for everyone. Your most important job as a musician is to deliver the best performance possible – to really bring down the house, to give it your all,  to leave everything you’ve got right there on the stage after the last encore. But you can’t do that if you can’t hear yourself…

What’s all this news about mixing shows with my iPad? iOS has really come a long way. And things are only going to get better and more far out in terms of what you can do with your favorite devices.
