    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine come interviews with Rob Fraboni and Dick LaPalm on recording a legend that first appeared in the March/April 1974 issue. R-e/p: Dick, how did you choose an engineer for the Dylan album? Dick LaPalm: I left the decision up to Rob. I asked him who should do it. At the time we had 3 guys. Rob came back after a couple of days and said, “I should do it.”… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   While most of the consumer world is just getting used to the idea of cloud computing, corporations have been using it for years. For those of you who don’t know, cloud computing means storing your data and even your apps on an external server that’s accessed via the Internet. A number of behind the scenes companies like RackSpace offer cloud services, but Google and Amazon also have huge server farms around the… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When I say reverb what comes to mind? How about delay? For a lot of people who are just starting out with recording and mixing, they may think that reverb is that awesome plug-in you use to make everything sound like it’s in a cathedral. And when they think of delay you may think of The Edge from U2. The truth is, there is SO MUCH you can do with reverb… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   It’s time for another book excerpt, this time from The Music Producer’s Handbook. It offers some advice about not only getting the click to cut through the mix and making it groove, but preventing any bleed into any open microphones as well. Many times just providing a metronome in the phones isn’t enough. What good is a click if you can’t hear it, or worse yet, groove to it? Here are some… View this story

    This article is provided by the ProAudioFiles.   Parallel compression refers to the technique of running a mult of a signal, compressing that mult, and then blending it in with the uncompressed signal. Some compressors also have a “mix” knob where you can blend the compressed and uncompressed signals. The benefits of parallel compression are many-fold, though there are a few pitfalls. Setting up a parallel compression chain can be daunting. Compression on it’s own can be a bit complex… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I got to thinking about the pro audio products I’d like to see invented after reading a similar story on home theater audio. When you think about it, we’ve all gotten pretty comfortable with technology that no one could ever consider as cutting edge. Even though core recording products exist in the following areas, there’s plenty of room for growth. Let’s take a look at a pie-in-the-sky wish list: 1. A new… View this story

      As Larry Crane, editor of Tape Op magazine, noted, “Plate Reverb. Many people ask me about this and I usually tell them to listen to some records from the ‘70s and ‘80s and look for reverb with a thick, pillowy sound that doesn’t obscure the vocal yet doesn’t quite sound like an actual room.” In 1983, I was the owner of a 16-track studio. One of the things that really separated the sounds of the recordings we could get… View this story

    This article is provided by the ProAudioFiles.   Joe Mabbott is an engineer who has directly and indirectly influenced me in many ways. I remember years ago in high school, blasting Atmostphere – Seven’s Travels in my car, basking in sonic hip-hop bliss. It’d only be years later in class with Joe at McNally Smith College of Music, where I’d find out he actually mixed and recorded that album (among many others I enjoyed). Joe is the owner/engineer at The… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   On a recent webinar, I talked about EQ. During one section, I focused on common EQ mistakes. I wanted to share my thoughts here, too. 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… View this story

    This article is provided by the ProAudioFiles.   When learning to mix – sound is of paramount importance. Understanding the ins and outs, and how it all interacts is the building blocks from which any mix is made. However, once sound and the manipulation of sound is learned, there is a further and more important step: feel. People listen to music on laptop speakers, ear-buds, and in cars on the freeway with the windows down. They’re probably also listening to… View this story
