HOLLYWOOD SOUND SYSTEMS CAN HELP WITH YOUR PRO AUDIO REOPENING CHECKLIST
At last! — Production Groups, Houses of Worship, Event Producers, Artists, Studios, Companies, Freelancers, Podcasters — everyone is reopening to a new "normal". But, a lot has happened in the last 18 months! Have you checked to make sure your wireless mics are FCC compliant? Last year, during the lockdown, the 600 mHz band went away — and it is now illegal to use. Have you checked for battery leakage in your mics, transmitters, and other battery-powered equipment? Does your sound system need a tune-up? — software updates? faders cleaned & exercised? speakers checked? There's a lot to deal with after so many months of being closed down. Hollywood Sound Systems can help bring your pro audio equipment up to speed. As an authorized dealer for today's finest pro audio equipment, we can also help if you're having difficulty finding the items that you need. So, keep calm, and give us a call! — 323-466-2416 — or drop us a note.

Along with headphone processing updates for clearer monitoring, other F8n features include – simultaneous recording on 8 separate tracks while also recording a stereo mix, the option to back up your files and stream live while recording, high-quality preamps, mic/line XLR/TRS inputs, and Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters that offer 10-20dB of headroom with limiting applied to each of the 8 channels simultaneously at full resolution. Downloading the Control App for iOS turns your iPhone/iPad/iPod into a wireless remote control with features such as metadata input, creating monitor mixes, and more. The Zoom F8n is an essential asset for any location sound mixer. Call or contact us for more information. We are pro-audio experts, ready to offer smart sound solutions for your next event or occasion.
