Tim presents ‘Mixing the Spill’ to the IOA


Tim presents ‘Mixing the Spill – acousticians view of a music balancers’ lot’ to the Midlands Branch of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), at the University of Derby tonight.

Tim’s talk will explain how the physical choices of layout and screening are interrelated with the differing microphone responses and electro-acoustic options on the mixing desk. This will be illuminated using the acousticians’ vocabulary of single reflections, barriers, frequency response, filters, compression and levels. His presentation will also aim to demonstrate that when the sounds are combined on the mixing desk there appears to be an interesting twist on the effects of masking that may explain a practice that helps clarity within the mix.
