    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Last month I did a guest post for Travis Whitmore’s SilverLake Studio blog as part of his 31 Days to Better Drums series. My article is below, you can read the rest of the 31 Days to Better Sounding Drums series on Travis’ blog. The article is not meant to be a tutorial on drum editing, but an overview of the concepts and methods, reasons why you’d want to edit your… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here are some interesting facts about the recording methods of the Beatles and the innovations that they (mostly engineer Geoff Emerick) introduced that are commonplace today. —Multi-miking drums. Until Emerick began to experiment, the drum kit was picked up by a maximum of two mics - one on kick drum and the other as an overhead above the snare. In order to get a bigger drum sound, Emerick introduced a mic on… View this story

    You’ve just finished a killer tracking session, one that you really want the ability to recreate, so now what? I’m generally confident in my memory for microphone placements and studio setup, except that plans change and what may have been easy to remember tomorrow suddenly needs to be compartmentalized until everyone is available again next month. Plus, there’s no remembering compressor or EQ settings, let alone values for gear that has less than descriptive front panels. So, what’s an engineer… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   In honor of Labor Day, let’s talk about work a little bit. (What, you thought I’d take the day off?) :>) I’m not talking about crap-I-have-to-go-to-the-office work. I’m talking about work in your studio, work that you (hopefully) love. Do you ever get paid for your recording skills? Do you ever charge your clients? Perhaps you don’t, but you’d like to. Or maybe you’ve started charging for a few projects here… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   This video (below) has made the rounds with my Facebook friends (I’m not sure exactly where it started, but thank you to whomever is responsible) and when you give it a watch you’ll know why. It’s a 1965 Frank Sinatra live record date, complete with a full orchestra, of his hit “It Was A Very Good Year.” There’s a lot to like in this video. Check out: —the small size of the… View this story

    While the skies now shine bright over my home state of Indiana, less than a month ago it was particularly harrowing to use Pro Audio equipment in the Midwest. Why? Well, we were constantly plagued with blizzards and freezing rain, which had a fairly devastating effect on the local power grid. Though I never completely lost power this winter, it did often waver intermittently for hours. Thankfully, when I setup my studio, I invested in several Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)… View this story

    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

    George Koch 08/26 07:01 AM,
    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
