    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   You don’t have to be the president of CBS Records to notice that the recording industry has changed a great deal in the last decade or two. For most artists, gone are the days of large multi-million dollar budgets for album projects. Nowadays, the recording process has got to be streamlined and efficient in order to be effective.  But even in the old days, there were certain things that bands would do to maximize their… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by JC I’m going to set up some mics to record the impending “weather-pocalypse” tonight. What should I use? Here’s what I have available: 2x AT3035 2x AT3031 1x SM57 1x Audix i5 1x R0DE NT2A 2x dBx RTA-M 3x Audio-Technica handheld dynamic mics. Unfortunately, I don’t own any kick drum mics.

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   My first day as a real engineer rather than an assistant was all about bass. The engineer (who was the studio manager as well) took a break after we recorded basic tracks on a Salsa song. Before leaving the room he told me to punch where the bassist wanted. I started, and was easily able to hear and punch individual notes rather than whole phrases. A few times I disagreed about which note… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Editor’s Note: Although this article first appeared on the site in 2011, the foundational information for studio engineers is worth repeating. Technical preparation is the most mundane of all the tasks. So mundane, in fact, that many A-listers either hire someone or have their assistant do all of this work. That being said, the technical prep may be the most important time you spend on some projects, because it’s where you tighten… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Today we’ve got a pair of overhead mics we’re going to talk about. They have come to me high passed, low cut, no lows at all. Super compressed and we’re going to look at the before and then we’re going to look at the after soloed and then in context with the drum kit, and then we’re going to talk about why you might want either of those options in… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   As I was telling one of the members of Mix With Us, I learn something new every time I mix a song… and I imagine that will always be the case. Mixing is such a wild task. It’s exciting, tedious, invigorating, and depressing… all at the same time. But there’s nothing like those final stages of a mix, when everything is finally coming together. One of the biggest hurdles you’ll run… View this story

    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 thought 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 June 2016. Note… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   No one will argue that digital technology has done much to empower musicians to take control over their recordings. Today’s artists are far less dependent on high-priced recording professionals, with many great-sounding projects having never even seen the inside of a recording studio. But while the average modern laptop rig can run circles around the Abbey Roads of yesteryear, the knowledge and expertise of those old-school engineers has yet to be bundled into a plugin.… View this story

    This article is provided by Sensaphonics.   Editor’s note: I’ve known Michael Santucci for a couple of decades now. I’ve been to his clinic and have talked with him numerous times about hearing health. His company, Sensaphonics, a manufacturer of in-ear monitors, is unique. The products are designed to promote safe listening through maximum isolation, and it’s the only IEM company with a Musicians Hearing Clinic on site. They would literally rather sell you a hearing test than a pair… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   What makes a live recording sound live? The audience, of course. A live recording is all about the energy of the event, and that energy comes from the crowd, so some real thought has to be given as to how it’s captured. Just setting up some microphones haphazardly usually produces less-than-desired results. To avoid that scenario, let’s have a look at some proven mic techniques for live recording. First, it can be… View this story
