    At the recent InfoComm 2015 show in Orlando, Harman’s Soundcraft spotlighted the new Si Impact digital mixing console, which is designed to be as simple as an analog mixer but with workflow enhancements and DSP power for both live sound and recording studio applications. The 40-input Soundcraft Si Impact offers live sound digital mixing with ViSi iPad control and built-in Stagebox connectivity for I/O expansion. In addition to its live sound components, the Si Impact has a 32-in/32-out USB recording… View this story

    The U.S. Army has—among many other resources—a 260 piece band. Like any other division of the Army, “Pershing’s Own” has a rich history and now, with the installation of their 48 channel API Legacy Plus Console, the Band is outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment for their work. Pershing’s Own was established in 1922 when General Pershing saw that many European armies fighting in the Great War had musicians travel and perform with them to increase the soldiers’ morale.  Before World War… View this story

    Adam Howard runs the spectrum from performing musician to producer, regularly conducts the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra and is the founding musical director of the Johannesburg Big Band.

    This article is provided by The Audio Mastering Blueprint Who is really responsible for a fantastic sounding master? Mixing is justifiably a bigger subject than mastering and would easily fill a book or two by itself. For that reason, rather than give a tutorial on mixing, I am simply going to outline some of the most common problems I have come across when receiving mixes from clients. I won’t go into too much detail with things like, what frequencies to… View this story

    When asked about their first experience with the API brand, many engineers, producers and artists can describe the session or studio in great detail. For The Blasting Room’s co-owner and chief engineer, Jason Livermore, however, API goes hand-in-hand with his entire career. “Pretty much immediately upon becoming interested in pursuing the recording arts,” the tone and warmth was integrated in his work. The impact of API was strong enough that when The Blasting Room recently began looking for a console… View this story

    Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro) recently helped a studio source the centerpiece for the facility – a legacy 24-fader Neve Genesys console that previously resided at Studio E at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. When Matt Tamisin and his brother Abraham saw the opportunity to acquire a console that had been part of one of the historic studio, they knew they had to have it for their Japanski Recording Studio in Athens, Georgia. “I knew that if I didn’t get… View this story

    When Montréal’s Studio 270 brought home a 48-channel automated API Legacy Plus console, co-owners Francois Hamel and Robert Langois agree it was much more than a smart business move. “I think the API Legacy saved us,” Hamel says. The studio has been in business since 1987, but before they added the Legacy to 270’s collection of outboard gear and microphones, the owners began to notice a slow decline in business. Hamel believes that the tendency for artists to work at… View this story
