    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   This week I had the privilege of interviewing Brent Milligan for my VIP members. He’s a professional producer/musician here in Nashville. Over the course of 45 minutes, Brent said so many things that I thought were just fantastic. I told him we could do a separate interview on EACH of those topics, there was so much good information. Towards the end of the interview, I asked Brent if he had any… View this story

    When a child is learning to walk, he is able to do no more than put one foot in front of the other and shift his weight. He learns quickly (after a couple of falls), that he must master these basics before he can advance to running, skipping, or dancing. His thoughts may not be quite so complex as we seem to imply, but the fact remains that for the time, he can only do one thing, and that without… View this story

    This article is provided by Audiofanzine. A pair of audio heads with a studio based outside Tokyo recently contacted me with their first recorded mic preamp comparison tests. I was impressed and happy to have made friends from studio trenches far far away. Let’s take a look at what they came up with. The guys at Studio J conducted their preamp test by recording two songs through the following preamps:—Chandler Limited TG2—Chandler Limited Germanium—Chameleon Labs 7602—Focusrite Red 6—Grace Design 201—Sound… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The graphic below represents the dilemma of the recording studio business. It’s the legendary Electric Lady Studio’s rate card from 1994 and it’s evidence why so many legendary studios have been turned into condos. If you take notice, a lock-out rate (meaning the studio is purchased for the entire day) ranges from $2,500 to $2,800 a day. Sixteen years later, major studio rates are the same, even less if you get a… View this story

    R-e/p: Tell us about redoing the control room for Village. GEORGE AUGSPURGER: From my standpoint, even before getting into the subtleties of those things that the client may like, there are a number of things you do in any control room. One is that you try to get the thing as nearly as possible to be bilaterally symmetrical. You’re stuck with two channel and four channel stereo, which are both oriented left and right, and to get any kind of… View this story

    What makes a good microphone preamplifier? What makes one mic preamp better for an application than another? Why even bother with “outboard” preamps? Frankly, there are no standard “correct” answers to these questions, it’s all about a subjective sense of aesthetic that users have to determine their own bad selves. Mic preamps - like wine, cars, guitars, and the brand of cigarettes you smoke - are all a very personal decision. What I may find remarkably mundane and boring may… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Last year my friend Kevin and his wife flew all the way out to Nashville from LA to record vocals for his album in my home studio. We had one week to track vocals for 13 songs. Of course, we spent a lot of time just hanging out and showing them around Nashville, but 7 days was an ideal amount of time. It gave us plenty of time to focus intently… View this story

    digital deception
    Moses Avalon 08/10 09:13 AM, 0 Comments
    From the dawn of pop music until the mid-1990s, if you had put a recording contract in front of most hungry artists, they would probably have signed it without thinking twice. But artists have become too savvy to go gaga about getting a boilerplate offer from a record company, and, as a result, music biz hucksters have had to become more creative about getting an artist to sign a contract without looking closely at the fine print. These days, record… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Apple’s iPad is still relatively new, but already there are a number of great music related apps available as outlined in an article on There were so many, in fact, that I would surely overlook a lot of worthy apps if I only posted some of them, so it’s best to read the entire article yourself. Here’s a summary of the iPad functions from the article. ————————————————————- Computing is enough a… View this story

    tape baking
    Kyle P. Snyder 08/03 08:35 AM, 8 Comments
    In late 2008 I was called out by a friend to repair a Studer tape deck; an A827, which I had never used before. While I was very fortunate that the studio owned both the original alignment tape and tentelometer, the original (rather aged and unused) tape shed like crazy because of its storage conditions, and our inability to bake the tape before use. Baking has gotten myself and many a colleague out of a sticky (ha ha) situation. However,… View this story
