General Principles of DJ Sound Amplification in Concert Halls

•September 23, 2012 • 4 Comments

I’m a wedding DJ in Western Mass and the following are some thoughts on principles of sound amplification. Enjoy!

“Setting of small and medium-sized rooms”

Wedding DJ amplification systems must be designed to deliver clean, clear sound in the right dynamic and frequency range with sufficient volume to all Audience seats, listening to music and speech programs probably more comfortable, create a sense of presence.

According to their function room, which set PA system, differ from each other. For example, in discos focus on the dance floor. The most important thing to create a uniform sound field over the heads of the dancers play the entire dynamic and frequency range of musical programs, and restrictions on the power used in sound reinforcement systems are almost nonexistent.
In the restaurants and night clubs PA system must have some flexibility. They have to translate to the same as the background, chamber, symphonic, blues, rock, disco and other music, as well as “live” musical performances. The same flexibility should have PA system and in concert halls.

Each room, depending on the architectural features and functionality requires an individual approach to the design of sound reinforcement systems. In this paper we propose to consider the characteristics of building sound reinforcement systems, based on the size of the hall, and not on functionality, suggesting that the premises can be used as multi-purpose.

With increasing space problems, clear (legible) sound and the level of the sound pressure, and hence the volume of playback of music and speech programs are growing. This is due to the fact that the further away from the sound source (speaker loudspeaker system) is a listener, the lower the volume level playing program. In space, where there is no reverb, such as on the street, the sound pressure level is reduced by half (6 dB) with distance from the source to the double distance.

The second problem that arises in this reverb playback applications specific to each room. If the listener is located near the speaker, it is in “direct field”. This field is where the sound is coming from the speaker louder reflected sound. At a distance from the speaker sound reflected from the floor, ceiling and walls of the room, louder sound coming directly from her.

This is where the problems begin.
In reverberant space is always a point where the reflected sound is stronger than a straight line. To be sure, the sound pressure level tends to a constant value in reverberant (diffuse) field, no matter where the listener. The distance from the speaker system on which the level of direct and reflected sound are called “critical distance.” When the listener is in a reverberation field, the sound he hears, Japan is largely a reflection from the floor, ceiling and walls of the room and only a small portion of it goes directly from the speaker. All these reflections reach the listener’s ear in a slightly different time periods, with a few more sound pressure than the direct sound. As a result, the listener is in the field of reverb, lost intelligibility and clarity of sound.

Reverberant field problem can be solved in two ways.
First – this is to change the shape and decoration reflecting elements of the walls and ceiling of the room. But in practice, change the interior of the premises in this way is almost impossible.
The second way – it is right to design complex sound reinforcement for him to overcome the reverberation field in a room.

The main focus in the design of sound reinforcement system, designed to work in a particular area should be given the choice of speakers. Speakers with a narrow radiation pattern sometimes referred to “ranged” (not standardized technical terms and jargon). The terms “long-range combat,” “melee” characterize how far the speakers can deliver clean, clear sound. It depends on the variance. To describe the principle of such systems can take an example from everyday life. Imagine a normal hose for watering. The water in the hose is suitable for top on its end with a constant pressure, and nozzle itself determines how water flows. If the nozzle is wide, the water will not pour, but if you change the nozzle on a narrower or hold the hose, the water will pour much further.

The same thing happens with sound. For example, if the midrange driver to connect with a wide mouthpiece, the system will “near or mid fight.” If its connected to the mouthpiece of a narrow-angle, you get a system of “ranged”. Using horn system with a narrow radiation pattern can solve the problem of room reverberation medium and large sizes. By increasing the sound pressure level of the direct sound are making that material music and speech programs became more clear and legible. System “ranged” are used not only to increase the sound pressure level, but also to focus on the sound of distant sound Audience field, with the sound pressure level of the direct sound will be reflected above. And this is the problem reverberation fields.

Consider the specific sound different size rooms and describe the public address system, which could be used in them.

Conditionally divided premises considered, depending on their size into three types – small with a volume of 300 m3, with average volume of 900 m3 and a large volume of 2700 m3. It should be noted that with such a difference in the size of the premises power sound reinforcement needed to maintain a certain sound pressure level (SPL) in reverberant field will be significantly different.
Consider a simple example, where we assume for convenience that the same sound system will work in a room with a capacity of 300 and 3000 m3. If the sound reinforcement system with a capacity of 100 W can provide in a small room average sound pressure level of 100 dB, the need for a large area is 10 times more power (about 1000 watts) to produce the same sound pressure level of 100 dB.
As desired acoustic power system is highly dependent on what music and speech programs, and how loud to articulate in a particular area. In Fig. 1 shows the average sound pressure levels in some typical cases.
Sound pressure level at a normal conversation at a distance of 30 cm is about 70 dB. For most people, the level of 120 dB causes pain. Sometimes live rock band sound pressure level reaches 115-120 dB and above. In what follows we assume that a given parameter in the halls of a sound pressure in the Audience seats, and the calculation shall be necessary to ensure that the sound pressure sound power emitters. The electric power is determined with the efficiency and sensitivity of the speakers.

Who is a Springfield Wedding DJ?

•September 1, 2012 • Leave a Comment

The figure of Wedding DJ Springfield Massachusetts is surrounded by myths, just as no less than the figure of a rock guitarist.
DJs in the modern sense of the word appeared in the first half of the ’70s. It’s not even that, what kind of music they then plant (in Jamaica – Reggae in the posh New York ballrooms – party, in the Bronx – hip-hop), the trick DJing was and still is in the hands of DJ all known records begin to sound in a new way and to make the audience a completely different effect. Without going into the subtle differences between the technologies DJ craft, we can say that the basic idea was to present the music as a continuous audio stream going. This stream is collected from the dance – that is more or less rhythmic – music recorded on vinyl records, which no audible joints infest each other.

The highest, the last and only goal deejay – encourage people to dance. Good DJ – this is not the one with the good records, and not the one who knows how to stitch them into a long intestine, and the one who is able to control the mood of the dancers, make public, bring it to a state of ecstasy. Dancing to DJ music should ideally be just ecstatic.

Initially, DJs wound up just dance music that was played on the radio and you buy in grocery stores is quite ordinary people. But in the mid-80’s – with the advent of so-called “house” and “techno” – DJ became a works records that are recorded and produced small editions for them. These were the kind of material – songs that had only one rhythmic foundation. These audio semis are called “tracks”, commonly called track – this track is a multi-track recording, the rhythm track – this track is recorded with the drums. At the track there is no beginning, no end, no dramatic development in the middle. In the course of the track a few times to escalate tensions, then – silence, relaxation, and stress is creeping up again.

Of course, the music and the chords are keyboards, and slow dissolves synth clouds, and music, but most importantly in the DJ music – it’s the bass and drums. By the way, here lie the origins of the famous opposition to techno and rock. Rock – it’s drums, bass and guitar, techno – drums and bass and guitar no. However, from the point of view of traditional pop music playing in the DJ music was something much more important – namely, life. Rhythmic shaft, which drives the DJ, can not hide her native origin, because the tracks for the house DJ’s recorded with a drum machine.

Music that gets the DJ, no man has never played it like cabbage, consists of many layers of machine rhythm.
Whether this is the reason for the complex case and doubt? By no means!
In the late 80’s began to form apologetics DJing and techno house music.
Ideally techno music listener should not know who did it. In other words, the technology avoids the pictures with one’s mugs and, therefore, rejects the stars in techno DJs no image. Refusing sounding word, techno give up the printed word: the technology is literally nothing to say.
There is no technology content, technology did not want to tell you, and no promises for the future. Techno nowhere encourages and requires no sacrifice. Technology provides a momentary feeling of freedom. And happiness. As well as the feeling that you are not alone. That’s it.

Techno – it’s the music of the future … technology is developing very fast, techno – it’s the only area of music in which there has been progress, the rest of the stagnation and decline, at best – trying to keep up with the technology, using it to achieve. Thus, technology impregnates all modern pop and rock music, takes them out of the crisis.

Moreover, technology has changed not only the sound of our civilization, but also its image. The visual style of techno eliminated nasty and notorious aesthetics of the 80’s. This refers to the high-tech computer graphics, as well as bright and extravagant style of clothing and interior decoration.
Techno – electronic music. Its development is linked to the rapid development of the most advanced equipment, high-technology.
Techno – intricate layered music. Techno has a soul movement. Techno appeals to the senses.
DJ – this is a new type of musician. He did not simply make records, he is in contact with live dancing crowd, he magnetizes it. DJ, docking tracks and letting them parallel to each other, these are made ​​of semi-live music. Incidentally, this is why technology is beyond criticism, music critics do not dance, and judged by techno records, that is, semi-finished products. But you can not judge the quality of the restaurant, looking into the fridge in the kitchen and trying to bite a frozen chicken! (This is the famous German DJ Vestbama argument.)

The result of the procedure “sostykovyvaniya tracks and transmittance in parallel to each other,” said mix. A plate that gets DJ, very often remixes DJ, so to say, mixes remixes, that is, speaking in languages, stirring mixture.

Remix – this is a new track, made ​​from fragments of already available. Roughly speaking, the original music take a few fragments – drum beat characteristic sigh or squeak, fixate (that is repeated a hundred times without change), and get new music. And since almost all the Wedding DJ Springfield music made ​​from sounds of the same synths, all existing tracks to some degree is a remix of one another.
Techno house music made ​​by combining well-known components, that is, this music is combinatorial. And the DJ – the last resort, the last schemer, he of interchangeable tracks, consisting of the same basic elements, collects rhythmically uhayuschy puzzle.

Techno – music of the future? DJ – Musician era of conceptual art? Techno is beyond criticism? Techno hard work? The validity of this thesis is permissible to doubt, worst of all, perhaps, is the fact that in real life dancing to the ‘modern techno house music “- it is not uncommon for an incendiary. Takes a long time to train myself to learn how to ignite under monotonic and maloizobretatelny knock, however, any kind of pop music requires many years of training.

Boom around techno and house music DJ’s around the mean first of all coming to a new generation of music enthusiasts and amateurs. Musicians are those who previously would have thought that it might be related to music, or rather – for audio creation. In many ways, this situation is similar to the era of the late 70’s: to be punk, to be able to play guitar like Jimmy Page does not need to be a DJ and techno producer in many cases it is sufficient to be able to slam his foot to the beat of a drum machine clatter. Falling prices for personal computers and increase their power made ​​possible the production of more or less acceptable (though stylistically highly limited) music right at your desk. Actually, it is the very fact which radically changed the face of modern pop music, not the appearance of a mysterious, infernal figures DJ.

DJs are not replaced “real” musicians, the DJ profession is not such a wonderful and desirable. If you want wide generalizations, we can say this: the “before” music composed by young, thoughtful twang guitar, Depeche Mode and all the metal is still just that work, the musicians, the heirs of the troubadours. And “now” music makes depressive schizophrenic taraschaschiesya the screens of their computers and move the mouse around the screen back and forth audio cubes.

Today, DJ’s, like, back to the beginning of the 70’s – they do the routine work of articulation partys. And, unfortunately, the music that they give birth, and could not some how far removed from the standards of the mid-’70s.
