The COVID-19 pandemic has lasted a lot longer than anyone hoped, and one area hit hard has been the live event industry. Whether you’re a gigging musician, public speaker, or church pastor, you no doubt have had to adjust and change your way of doing things.

As the country tries to do just that, outdoor events have become more important – in fact in some states churches are limited to only outdoor services.

This all means you can’t rely on venues’ in-house PA systems, so you may want to take a look at some portable options that can deliver great sound outside.

Luckily, that’s exactly what we specialize in here at Carvin Audio, so we thought now would be a good time to introduce you to a few of our portable systems.

Carvin Audio’s TRC Active Column Array Systems

Carvin Audio’s top line systems are our TRC Active Column Array Systems. These systems are available in configurations of 2000W – 8000W, so they are easily scalable. The TRC600A is an 8000 watt system which projects up to 400 feet. This is a fully equipped system, including two pairs of TRX3900 column array loud speakers and four TRx3118A 2000 watt powered subwoofers.

With DSP processing, simple setup, incredible power and clarity, and a super lightweight design, the TRC600A provides enough power and portability for any event, any time. Rock bands, DJ shows, big outdoor church services- you name it.

Who should consider the TRC Systems

Churches, music venues, bands – anyone who’s got a big audience and needs to move things outdoors would do well with the TRC600A. If you feel like you don’t need quite that much, you might look to the 4000 watt TRC400A or even the 2000 watt TRC200A.

These systems offer the same transparent audio, small footprint, power, and built in DSP with fewer components, for those “pretty big” outdoor events that don’t call for as many speakers and subs, but still need a robust solution. You can always start with a TRC200A system and add a second system later if you need more power.

An even simpler solution

Even if you’re not putting on big events, you still may find yourself outside, looking for a portable sound solution. Carvin Audio’s QX15A is an active PA loudspeaker suitable for use as a main or a monitor. With 1000 watts of bi-amped power, these can deliver plenty of crystal-clear sound for a wide variety of events and outdoor spaces. Since they’re powered, you don’t have to have a separate amp, and since they come with a built in 3-channel mixer with Bluetooth connectivity you may not even need a separate mixer.

The QX15As work perfectly as stage monitors too, so you can expand and contract your set up as needed. Using the Bluetooth feature, you can link cabinets together for a true stereo wireless solution, or even add a TRx3118A subwoofer for a complete sound system with real oomph.

If you need a smaller sized cabinet, the QX15A’s little brother, the SCX12A 1000W Main/Monitor, provides just as much wattage in a smaller footprint, giving you the flexibility to travel and perform on even the smallest outdoor stage. The SCX12A packs a punch in a small package, includes a 2-channel mixer, and utilizes a DSP limiter to protect the driver and horns from peaks during a performance.

These active loudspeakers even have fly points, so they can be included in a multitude of setups.

Stay Safe, Make Sound

We’ve all had to make adjustments, and that may be the case for a while. So, if you’re looking for a way to keep rocking, stay inspired, and keeping making amazing music  – in a safe way, outside – Carvin Audio’s portable PA systems are a great solution.

Thanks for thinking of us musicians having a hard time nowadays.It’s true we dont have much working dates and the solution is the street. I found an Acus one for street amp 80w.But the problem is weight.The amp weighs more than 14 Ks.Have you at Carvin an amp that can support 100w. but not exceiding 8K? The one for street have 80W. but the Bose S1 pro have 100w power and weiths 6K. The problem with the Bose is that it sounds more like WIFI.Great if you listen to music but it’s not at all an instrument amp although they say it is.Now the problem it’s in your hands.You to resolve. It’s your job for 2021.Think that there is hundreds thousands musicians waiting for a solution for an easy to carry good sounding amp and also practical.I mean when you happen to get to the spot you want to play you don’t have to plug a battery a converter a reverb or any other effect.Everything has to suit in a small box.If you succed to provide such a beauty I promess you will sell more amps than ever.Wish you all the best for 2021

When it comes to picking your ideal vocal mic, you can read for days about various recommendations, polar patterns, frequency response, mic styles, SPL, response curves, proximity effect, and so on. But since the human voice is so variable, specific recommendations can easily lead you astray.

Instead, we’ll go over the major considerations which will narrow your choices down significantly – and then it’s just a matter of listening.

In the studio, compression is probably the most important tool in an engineer’s arsenal – both in the mix and during tracking sessions. Properly used, compression can bring elements forward, fit them in the mix, shape tone and timbre, and glue mixes together.

By now it’s an age-old question: should we track the band together as if we were playing live or should we try to get the cleanest signals and performances possible by tracking separately?
