    Out of the box, my first impression of the new Les Paul Reference Monitors from Gibson was that I didn’t even care what they sounded like. They’re absolutely gorgeous. My room received an instant aesthetic upgrade just by having them in there. The active (bi-amped), 2-way line offers 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch carbon woofer options, each joined by a 1-inch carbon-coated titanium tweeter in a front-ported, bass-reflex enclosure. The rear panel includes high- and low-frequency trim controls for tailoring, both… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Telling an audio engineer to listen is like telling a doctor to heal. Of course we’re going to listen! How else do we get a great-sounding recording? You’re good at listening to the music, but how well do you listen to the artist? I produced an album for a really talented singer-songwriter named Whitney Winkler in which she asked me to play acoustic guitar on the project. Once we had the guitar and… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   We are continuing in the Five Concepts Series. This little entry is going to be all about punch. What is punch? Well, punch is in essence, dynamics. It’s the ability for a sound to step out of the speaker and physically impact the listener. So I’ll often talk about something like speaker excursion, which is the actual movement of the cone outside of it’s bearing, and I’ll talk about punch,… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Recently I asked my Twitter followers to complete and RT the phrase “You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve ____” It was a lot of fun to see the replies. I didn’t really expect serious answers. theaudiogeek: You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve made your own cables. timgosden: You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve become a coffee snob. SmallRoomStudio: You’re not a real audio engineer until… View this story

    This article is provided by   I’ve come to realize that many of my mixes follow a specific approach. The decisions made, directions pursued, imagery, sounds achieved, and overall production approach in each mix will vary greatly based on the musical genre and even my mood. The vocal on a lush ballad will most likely sound and feel very different from the “hype” vocal in a rap song.  Regardless, I will have probably used some or all of the… View this story

    Most musicians who play club gigs in the United States don’t belong to the Musicians Union since they don’t feel that it has much to offer them. While that may or may not be the case, everything changes when you’re working on a union gig for record label or a symphony orchestra, because that’s where the union guarantees a reasonable wage rate and demands that your employer contributes to the union pension fund. But what happens if you’re a producer… View this story

    Have you ever wondered why some recording artists and producers are more successful in the studio at accomplishing their goals than other people who are equally or more musically talented? As a recording engineer, here’s what I’ve noticed about successful people in the studio. Vision I’ve found successful people come in all personality types from the very shy and soft-spoken to the boisterous extrovert but they all share a common trait: they have a very specific “vision” of their songs… View this story

    This exclusive article is provided by AudioFanzine.   When we hear sounds in the “real world,” they are in an acoustic space. For example, suppose you are playing acoustic guitar in your living room. You hear not only the guitar’s sound, but because the guitar generates sound waves, they bounce off walls, the ceiling, and the floor. Some of these sound waves return to your ears, which due to their travel through the air, will be somewhat delayed compared to… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   In this video, Joe provides a unique spin on a classic bass mixing trick that can be done with any DAW but is made even easier to attain in new PreSonus Studio One 3 (version 3). So it’s both a mixing tip and a Studio One 3-specific tip. Using a track, he takes you through the process, including a discussion of using distortion on bass (not new) as well as using it in… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Dutch rock band Golden Earring was founded in 1961 but came to international fame in 1973 with “Radar Love,” a song still played on classic rock radio. The song started around an idea for the title and grew from there, eventually becoming a cut on the band’s US debut album Moontan. The song was chosen as a single more through the process of elimination, since it was the only one on the… View this story
