For as long as I can remember music has been a part of my life one way or another. Although I wasn’t always a musician, once I reached the skill level of being ready to play gigs, I realized my Marshall half stack wasn’t going to cut it as my amplification system for both my vocals and guitar (although I did try). Naturally buying a PA system was really my only next available option. I’ve been through a few different PA’s over the years. I started with Passive and then slowly moved to Active as I began to realize an all in one unit just simply made more sense for my needs. Having previous experience with PA systems I was recently given the opportunity to test an Electro-Voice ELX200-10P. I chose the 10” version because it was small enough, yet the frequency response looked proper for my application.
Yes, I’m a woman in the audio industry - a somewhat scarce phenomenon. But despite that, you could say I blend in well with the “passionate about audio”, “enjoying silly jokes” and “occasionally wearing a ponytail” guys. I have always enjoyed technology and science, and from all technical industries, I think audio is a bit of a special place. Here are the top 4 things that make me specifically enjoy the industry.

Located in suburban Akron, Ohio, Grace Church is a contemporary Christian church with eight locations. They sought a more musically coherent sound system to replace the aging point-source system in their main Bath Campus location. Integrator Kevin Root of Rootaudio saw the 620-seat sanctuary as an excellent candidate for a line-array system, and suggested Electro-Voice as a solution.
We have all been there, and visit that feeling regularly. “I have two hours, do I complete the church audio quote, the new restaurant/bar job, or the corporate paging? Which is the biggest? Which has the highest close? I have found myself in this very situation over and over. Deadlines, meetings, and expectations piled up, and all the while you have a steady stream of projects which you need to design fast.
Using Datapath Fx4 Miami Beach’s The Temple House & United Projection event hall creates immersive experiences for guests by projection mapping the bare bones white walls.

Being in the know is one thing. Being in the know on the right things is the real trick. Those of you who I have worked with, know that I am a bit of a gear skeptic and that I don’t beat around the bush. Those who I haven’t had the pleasure of working with yet can put me to the test with these selections and news. With the constant noise of new product releases, it can be hard to filter what is important and what is not.
You know the situation. If you are putting in a USB appliance such as a camera in a room, and you find out that the cable run from the camera to its destination is just a hair longer than the spec, what do you do? With USB 2.0 standards you had fifteen meters, which was a decent run, but with so many USB 3.0 appliances coming out with a tiny three-meter maximum distance, this has become a common occurrence.
Not so long ago, a project I was working on was moving perfectly. Design, labor, pricing, and profit were all spot on. I crossed my T’s and dotted my I’s and then it happened. A shipping mistake from a vendor snowballed out of control. It wasn’t the first time, and I thought there was no way it could happen a second time but of course, it did.

The way we consume video has changed over the last ten years. A decade ago no one would have thought that more than half of the video we consume would be on a phone or tablet.

Recently, I found myself taking stock: I have stepped out of the days of crates and cases of music, and now I am done lugging around huge dual fifteen-inch tops and eighteen-inch subs. After some extensive research, it was time to pull the trigger. I found myself asking: what can the EV Evolve 50 do for me?
