News: Google, Facebook warn against new US piracy legislation

Google, Facebook warn against new US piracy legislation

Web firms including Google and Facebook have written to the US government in opposition to a proposed bill to combat piracy.

Alongside AOL, Twitter and eBay they claim that the Stop Online Piracy Act poses huge risks to the internet.

SOPA, supported by the music and film industries, aims to give new powers to content providers to help them take offending sites offline.

The US House of Representatives is due to debate the bill on 16 November.

** For those who are not familiar, FOH mixes also known as board tapes are generally not pleasant to listen to because they are not created for the purpose of delivering a fully formed mix to a home listener. They are generated from the source that is serving the venue audience. In other words, the engineer is balancing the mix for the live audience based on all of the factors of the environment that particular night. If the room is very bass heavy, many of those frequencies will be cut in the mix, possibly making it sound anemic on the reference recording but right for the mix in the venue. If instruments are too loud from the stage they will likely be quiet in the FOH mix. The reason for this is that instruments need to be fed from the mix console to the PA. If there are loud instruments on stage that are heard well by the audience and engineer purely from the stage volume they will not be included as much in the PA speaker system in the venue. This is a very common variable that is dealt with throughout all of the shows on tour. Each night is different and it's difficult to get true consistency.

But there are other times when the balance is pretty good.Sometimes great! Having listened to all of our FOH mixes I've found some great examples where they are well balanced and made a record out of them.

When things cannot be multitracked FOH refs become master recordings and sometimes capture amazing performances. Because of that very reason I chose to examine the FOH library of recordings I have that fit the above description and make this record.

Glynn Wood is our FOH engineer.  Samples
