You are a venue concerned with keeping your technicians up to date with the latest know-how in sound reinforcement? You work as a sound designer for a theatre or dance company and you would like to have develop your writing of soundscapes on stage? You are a training centre and you would like to give your trainees tools they can go home with, tools they can keep using after the course is finished? Get in touch with us for any training in WFS!
In some places, like churches that have very long reverberation times, voices and musical instruments can lose very quickly their definition. Sound reinforcement may be necessary. But when it is done with large speakers on both sides of the sound stage it can cause the acoustics to get louder and blur even more the sound because of a lack of spatial coherence. In this case can WFS be the solution?
During our summer residency at Théâtre Garonne we have had the occasion to test our front-fills on a ground level stage. These little speakers have a coaxial design with a wide coverage angle of 120°. When they are put on the ground there are important reflections bouncing on the floor that can colour or interfere with the original signal.
With Wave Field Synthesis you are not limited to placing sources in depth and width, but you can also work with height. We’ll discuss in this article the possible consequences on a PA with speakers on the floor usually for the front rows in the audience and a flown system for the audience sitting further from the stage.Poursuivre la lecture « Dealing with Height on a WFS PA »
