#bethelight – Day 79

#bethelight – Day 77

I really was patient yesterday while I driving.  I can't say the same for my passenger.  LOL. Today I decided to spread light by offering to help.  When you want to help someone, ask: “How can I help?” and also suggest specific ways you can help. First, most people are not comfortable asking for help. … Continue reading #bethelight – Day 77

Eating for My Health One Day at a Time

Nearly ever person who asks me about my "diet" doesn't believe I don't feel hungry.  I really don't.  I stopped feeling hungry a long time ago. I discovered for myself that the discomfort and the hunger that I felt was really more like with-drawl.  What I felt was more related to the process of detoxification… Continue reading Eating for My Health One Day at a Time

Today I need to go to Salem today.  That means I need to drive in traffic.  Thus, today I am going to slow down and let other merge today.  I'm going to allow others to go ahead of me.  Today I'm going to allow pedestrians to… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 76


Basic Path of Sound

Learning something new is worth the effort!

Resigning as the General Manager of the Universe

I recently attempted to teach the basics of sound engineering to my tech theatre class.  It is tough to teach large classes a subject that I think is best learned hand on when there isn’t enough equipment to go around.  I was hoping to keep it simple.

The role of a sound system is to amplify and adjust the sound quality of an audio signal and to provide an output for a speaker system.  There are 4 basic stages… input, mixing/effects, amplification, and output.


The first step is input.  The mic captures the sound and converts the sound wave to electric impulses that can be fed to the rest of the system.  The microphone is a “transducer” that converts acoustic sound  into electrical signals that can then be processed and amplified by the system.    Audio players convert the sound data encoded on a recording into electrical signals that can…
