    The Church Sound Forum here on ProSoundWeb is a free, on-line resource of information and dialog for individuals working with sound at their church. This was taken from an older thread that was moderated by Tom Young, a highly respected A/V consultant with decades of experience. To participate in the forum, go here. Question By Ken: I’m a volunteer at our church and I’ve recently taken on heading the all-volunteer audio team. I’m a musician by training and taught music… View this story

    Excerpted from Mix Masters: Platinum Engineers Reveal Their Secrets for Success.   The most revered and respected pop music of all time is, indisputably, that made by the Beatles. Almost forty years after they were recorded, their words and melodies are still heard all over the world. Even today, producers and musicians speak of Beatles’ records with awe as they strive for some modicum of the artistic and commercial success achieved by those records. And while many much more recent… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve been working on this article in my head for some time now. The basic concept for the article is the law of diminishing returns. This law states that as you continue to put time/energy/money/effort into a project, at some point the return you receive for the increased effort is no longer worth it. It’s sort of like a compressor; put 2 dB in, get 1 dB out. Turn up the ratio and… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer. Guest Post from Duke DeJong   A frequent question I’m asked is, “what are the most important things I should look for in a piece of gear?” I have three answers to this question regardless of whether it’s audio, video, lighting, or any other gear. The first two are pretty obvious and related: What do I need a specific piece of gear to do both now and in the near future and… View this story

    Editor’s Note: This is an excerpt from Audio Production and Critical Listening: Technical Ear Training, available from Focal Press. In the recording process, engineers regularly encounter technical issues that cause noises to be introduced or audio signals to be degraded inadvertently. To the careful listener, such events remove the illusion of transparent audio technology, revealing a recorded musical performance and reminding them that they are listening to a recording mediated by once invisible but now clearly apparent technology. It becomes… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When I started recording more seriously, I was spending most of my time in professional studios. Fancy studios are awesome. You’ve got a pretty control room with a big console, patchbay, and couches. You’ve got a nice big tracking room, and you’ve probably got a couple of extra rooms or vocal booths thrown in there. All this is great, however, for those recording in personal studios, chances are the musicians you… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve been asked by a few people how I would go about getting a bass sound, since I’ve mentioned before that I’d approach things differently. Actually, the sound of the bass isn’t as important as the relationship it has with the kick and snare drums, since they all reinforce one another if blended correctly. Here’s my approach, assuming that both the bass and the drums are recorded well and sound pretty good… View this story

    We’re currently in-between touring seasons. Cables and snakes have been tested and repaired, wood painted, and cases treated to fresh new stenciling. All racks have been repackaged to their standard configurations, trucks subjected to annual maintenance, and warehouse floor swept - twice. Aside from a stray show here and there, for many hire companies, things are pretty quiet. Yes, these are the days that turn sound company owner and manager thoughts to Alternative Revenue Sources (ARS). The contracting/install market is… View this story

    This excerpt is the first in a series from Bruce Swedien’s book Make Mine Music by Hal Leonard Microphone Design Technology And Microphone Technique Along with this development of a more live sound and hi-fi in the popular recorded music of the early 1950’s, a great deal of experimentation and improvement in microphone placement and technique was going on at the same time. Much energy and effort were put into the development of innovative microphone design. American microphone design technology… View this story
