Don’t Let the Audio at Your Outdoor Venue Fall Flat

Don’t Let the Audio at Your Outdoor Venue Fall FlatInstalling a sound system indoors has its challenges. But one of the advantages that audio engineers have when they’re creating an indoor system over an outdoor system is that they don’t have to think about what effect the weather will have on the sound. If a designer doesn’t account for humidity in the summer or very dry conditions in the winter, depending on when the sound system will be used, it could lead to big problems with the sound quality of a system.

And weather conditions aren’t the only thing to worry about. There are also other issues that the engineer can run into during an installation as well. If you aren’t careful, it could lead to the sound system in your outdoor venue falling flat when you need it most. Here are a few problems that can plague outdoor sound systems.

Insufficient Bass

When you install a sound system indoors, it’s pretty easy to pump up your bass levels. Your speakers and subwoofers can be positioned near solid surfaces that will cause sound reflections and increase the bass. But when you’re outdoors, you usually don’t have any structures to rely on to improve your bass. As a result, sound system designers need to get creative to keep the bass booming. They may need to tinker with the positioning of speakers or add additional subwoofers to get the desired sound.

Echoing

There’s nothing worse than going to watch a concert or another live event and hearing everything echo throughout it. Echoing can be a problem for sound

engineers both indoors and outdoors, but it’s usually more problematic outside where sound can travel greater distances before bouncing back off large surfaces and causing an echo. Large surfaces can also cause sound to travel to areas where you might not want it, like directly into a nearby neighborhood, so it’s important to design a sound system to contain sound to one specific area.

Noise Disturbances

Are you installing a sound system in the middle of a neighborhood or just outside of a residential area? If so, there are probably certain rules and regulations you will need to follow with regards to how much sound you can make. And you won’t be able to simply close a door or turn down the volume like you could if you were indoors to appease your neighbors. When you have an outdoor sound system, you need to make sure it’s designed to avoid breaking any local laws.

Setting up the right sound system for your outdoor venue is important. Studio 33 Stage Productions can help you choose the right equipment and provide you with a sound engineer and sound engineer assistant if you need them. Call us at 909-783-1628 today to discover how we can help you with all of your outdoor sound system needs.

What Goes Into Professional Sound Stage Set Up

Sound Stage Set UpWhen we go to a concert or live event, we see the lighting and speakers on the sound stage but typically we do not think too much about what goes into making it all of it come together.

The reality is there are a lot of functioning parts that go into a sound stage, that makes the event sound as good as it does.

Now say a popular band is coming to town, for that there are could be eight precision speakers and four sub speakers that will deliver the sound, just at the minimum.

These are put into place by ground supported lifts, that will make sure when the volume is too loud, they won’t shift or fall.

In addition to those speakers, there are also four sound wedges that will be placed behind screens near the stage. These all connect to an amplifier system that consists of two high-powered amplifier racks.

All of this is then controlled by a digital soundboard off of the stage.

There is also a microphone kit box and drum microphone kit that are hooked up to their respective instruments. In conjunction with those kits, there are also a lot of microphones and mic stands that need to be assembled and placed accordingly.

Anything can happen at a concert, even a dead microphone. When that happens, backups must be on the ready, off stage, so the performer can grab one and get back to the show.

Once all of this is installed, sound technicians will double check once installation is done that everything is working like it is supposed to.

Studio 33 offers sound systems, lighting, sound reinforcement and special effects for different types of professional events such as night clubs and concerts in Northern California.

No matter what the service needed, what we offer will make your event unforgettable. For more information or to hire Studio 33 for your next event, call us today at 909-783-1628!

Why Use Special Effects At Concerts

Why Use Special Effects At ConcertsMusic itself is very therapeutic, which is why we surround ourselves with it every day. Concerts play a particularly big role in a music lover’s life. It doesn’t always have to be your favorite band; you might find the rhythm, beat, and energy from the band players to be just as addicting.

 

Concert preparation involves very intricate steps. Once the stage is up and secure, you will need to accommodate many wires, cords, and various equipment to support the band’s instruments and provide an overall amazing sound.

 

Sure the music can often be enough, but if you really want to impress the guests, there are Special Effects you can add.

 

Misting systems: using specialty nozzles that are attached to a high pressure pump, water is dispersed through the nozzles in a mist, which provide quick relief from heat. Outdoor concerts and entertainment could definitely benefit from a misting system to keep guests cool and comfortable.

 

LED Lighting: LED lights are not too bright, but they have a way of illuminating a space so uniquely that they can change the overall appearance.

 

Confetti Cannons: who honestly doesn’t love confetti and what a better way to celebrate the beginning or ending of a show?

 

Strobe Lights: for high energy events and concerts, strobe lights can really get the crowd going.

 

Snow Machines: giving the same effect as falling snow without the cold, a snow machine is a great addition to concerts.

 

For these and more special effects, Studio 33 can deliver. Specializing in stage setup, lighting and other effects, we can help turn your concert into a well-rounded and completely entertaining musical event. Contact us for more information today!

Gearing Up For Summer Concert Series

Gearing Up For Summer Concert SeriesWhen the winter chill finally disappears, one of the best outdoor activities to engage in is an outdoor concert. There’s nothing like being outside in the fresh air, surrounded by other eager fans as you wait for the band to play on the big stage. Not only is the music addicting, it’s the overall atmosphere that an outdoor concert series brings.

There are two Concerts for the “In The Park” series that are worth going to: Lake Arrowhead Arts at Tavern Bay and City of Fontana Concerts In The Park.

During the summer months you can gather up a blanket, bottle of wine and snacks to accommodate you as you enjoy the music, the people and the scenery.

At Lake Arrowhead Arts at Tavern Bay, you can celebrate the local students as they perform pieces learned throughout the year. Thursday’s in July there will also be a Summer Music Festival with three bands playing iconic hits that we’ve all come to love.

The City of Fontana Concerts In The Park is a great way to ring in summer. The stage is set just perfectly for all guests to enjoy the musicians. Running from June to August, guests can enjoy free music as well as activity booths for children and food.

There is a lot of preparation involved for a concert series. You will definitely have to be prepared for unforeseen weather with a stage overhang and protection for sound systems and electrical wiring.

Aside from the safety aspect, you want your guests to get the best musical experience ever. This involves unique lighting, a superior sound system, a fog system for added effects, and an ample stage.

Having the experience to not only set up these systems in a timely manner, but to also hide cords and unsightly equipment takes skill and patience. In order to continue providing concert series and festivals, you have to provide professional stage set up services.

Studio 33 is known for professional stage set up including lighting and special effects. We have a lot of experience setting up for concerts and festivals. You can learn more about our services by contacting us.

Tis the Season for Wedding Bells

Tis the Season for Wedding BellsWedding bells are ringing, not only is it one of the most memorable nights of two individual’s lives, but the “works” that are included making it a night to always remember and never forget. Entertainment such as photo booths, LED lights, alternating colors of lights, sound effects, and special effects create an atmosphere capturing guest’s interest.

These three simple factors that make or break a wedding include music, food, and entertainment.

Think about the last time you attended a wedding; first thought that comes to mind is music and dancing. Music allows the dance floor to be a separate area for guests to congregate and “boogie on down,” while bringing one another together. Special effect such as lighting, strobe lights, disco balls, alternating colors, create the makeup of the dance floor, as well adds a more fun, laid back environment for guests.

Second (for some it may be first) major factor that makes or breaks a wedding is what is being served for dinner. If the food is good, guests are happy and full. Dining is an experience; the entire atmosphere sets the mood for beginning the overall night.Tis the Season for Wedding Bells

Whether it is your new name lit up overlooking the head table, the sound system playing Frank Sinatra, or whimsical designs of light overlooking the ceiling and walls. All add a special touch to your day that guests will truly remember.

Last but not least, entertaining your guests during a wedding can be as simple as renting a photo booth.
