    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Whenever an engineer has trouble dialing in the EQ on a track, chances are its because of one or more of the 6 trouble frequency areas. These are areas where too much or too little can cause your track to either stick out like a sore thumb, or disappear into the mix completely. Let’s take a look. 200Hz (Mud) - Too much can cause the track or the mix to sound muddy… View this story

    This article is provided by Sonicbids.com   Audio companies release a million new gadgets per week. For every piece of gear that one studio can’t live without, there’s another studio that’s never heard of it. But there are certain things no one should ever start a session without – some of them items you’re unlikely to think about until you need them. Here are seven critical pieces of the studio puzzle. 1. A Beautiful Pair Of Monitors A DAW for… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Nothing has more effect on the sound of your recordings than microphone technique. For example, which mic you choose—and where you place it—affect the recorded tone quality. That is, mic technique affects how much bass, midrange, and treble you hear in the monitored sound of a musical instrument. Mic choice and placement also affect how distant the instrument sounds in the recording, and how much background noise you pick up. This guide… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   EQ-ing Without Listening First. Are you guilty of this? Come on, be honest. Have you ever opened up a mix and started slapping EQs on every channel and twisting away at the knobs? It’s okay, I’ve done it, too. Do you know why this is a bad idea? Last night I was working on a mix, and the ol’ temptation to throw a bunch of plugins by default came a-calling. I… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most folks around Omega Studios consider me to be the “analog” guy, but after all I am a working engineer in the 21st century. That means I need to know my way around those little boxes full of silicon, spinning magnetic platters and binary code. I am speaking, of course, about the modern day computer. Despite my nostalgic preferences for antiquated recording technology, I am a certified operator of, and work daily in, Pro Tools.… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve received a lot of questions lately about my opinion on some very inexpensive vintage mic clones. I love finding a great cheap mic as much as the next guy, but there are some things to watch out for before buying. I thought it might be helpful to repost the following from a few years ago. In many ways we’re in the golden age of audio gear. On the whole, inexpensive audio… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Please don’t say soundproofing, if you mean room treatment – and vice versa. I’m happy more people are realizing the influence acoustics has on their listening (and viewing) experience. I know the room is the final component in all entertainment systems (and also the first component, if you’re a musician or recording engineer), and that message is reaching farther every day. So that’s good, right? As with all things, a little info can be dangerous.… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Some time ago I decided I wanted to find out how the location of a microphone near a banjo affects the tone quality you hear. To make these tests scientific as well as subjective, I measured the spectrum of the banjo in several different mic locations. The spectrum of a musical instrument is its output vs. frequency. It affects the tonal balance or timbre. It is the relative levels of the fundamental… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Editor’s note: This article originally ran in 2011, but the information is still just as useful and relevant today. A question I’m often asked is “Do You Mix With Headphones”, which I think is something worth discussing. To start, here are a few comments I’ve received in response to this very question: David S. I cater to the most popular form of listening. So far, I’ve found that mixing to headphones… View this story

    PSW Staff 04/07 01:09 PM,
    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we got to thinking that it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of… View this story
