Time to get caught up on all things A/V you might have missed last week!

We’re LOVING the “My #1 Moment” series from Shure, Taylor Guitars, and BMI. Here is songwriter Nate Mercereau talking about writing the Shawn Mendes hit “If I Can’t Have You”.

The SM58 and the SM57 go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like mac and cheese. Like Simon and Garfunkle!

Pictured: a lot of gear that is going to arrive at the gig as good as new. Well, at least as good as when you started your trip. Thanks SKB!

Even the “small” front-of-house setups should sound amazing. And they definitely do when you have the dLive system from Allen & Heath installed!

Looking for some more info on getting the dLive or Avantis system configured and setup? Check out this great video!

From conference rooms to planetariums, Barco’s projectors are always the right choice.

Live shows are coming back! Is your venue prepared? They are if they use DAS speakers like the Aero Series!

While DMX cables look a lot like XLR cables, they are actually used in lighting (not audio) applications. Don’t make the rookie mistake of trying to use a DMX cable instead of an XLR cable, but DO reach for Hosa Technology branded cables.

Crystal-clear audio? Yes please! Listen Technologies delivers every time.

And if you want to get technical for a minute (well, more like six minutes) then make sure to check out this podcast about when to use FM and when to use IR.

Meanwhile, back at the office QSC Systems is also excited for some fun new tools coming up on the horizon.

One of the best features of the new Shure MV7 microphone is that you don’t need an expensive soundproof room in order to sound great. See how the tech inside of the new mic helps you get great recordings in even the most acoustically challenging rooms.

Meanwhile, the MV7 is based on the iconic SM7B microphone. The 20khz podcast recently ran through the history of the storied mic, and how it quickly became the standard for podcasters.

Even if your only knowledge of beatboxing is watching Michael Winslow in the Police Academy films, make sure to watch this episode of Shure’s Make The World Your Stage with the incredibly talented Robeat!

These QSC K12.2’s will give you that little extra motivation to complete your workouts!
