Hank Neuberger is the supervisor of broadcast audio for the Grammys. Here, he describes the signal path from the stage to homes around the world.



How much dynamic-range compression is applied to the audio?

I very much appreciate the technical feat that putting on the Grammys is. I run the record board at my church using a 128 channel AVID ProTools rig - we use a Venue with a D-Show for FOH. However, the audio I got at my home - listened to with an HK receiver over Paradigm speakers - was a mess.
The musical performances were frequency limited and had little dynamic range. Somewhere in the chain from California to my house in VA there was some severe clamping down on the signal.
