    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

    Mixing front of house sound for festivals is both one of the easiest and most challenging situations we face as live sound engineers. They present a perfect storm of all factors working against us: minimal setup and sound check time, huge audiences, pressures from band management, outdoor environmental factors, plus show reviewers can make direct comparisons between the quality of our mix and a multitude of others. To make things worse, unless we work for a top-billed artist on the… View this story

    sound myths
    Harvey Gerst 08/26/15 07:03 AM,
    Over the years, I’ve heard people tell me a lot of things that they believe to be true, but aren’t. They hear it from other musicians and pass it on and pretty soon, people start accepting it as absolute fact. The actual truth gets buried in history and that’s the way legends are born. It’s charming, but inaccurate. Let’s examine some of these beliefs. Bass drum ports There are a lot of drummers that cut a small hole (usually around… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   A question I’m frequently asked is how to remove the vocals from tracks for clients. While you can never completely remove the vocals, you can generally knock them down enough to make the track useful for whatever the client has planned. Although there are boxes and tools for this now, basic recording software will enable you to do a pretty solid job for a live performance track. As always, the video is embedded… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Telling an audio engineer to listen is like telling a doctor to heal. Of course we’re going to listen! How else do we get a great-sounding recording? You’re good at listening to the music, but how well do you listen to the artist? I produced an album for a really talented singer-songwriter named Whitney Winkler in which she asked me to play acoustic guitar on the project. Once we had the guitar and… View this story

    This exclusive article is provided by AudioFanzine.   When we hear sounds in the “real world,” they are in an acoustic space. For example, suppose you are playing acoustic guitar in your living room. You hear not only the guitar’s sound, but because the guitar generates sound waves, they bounce off walls, the ceiling, and the floor. Some of these sound waves return to your ears, which due to their travel through the air, will be somewhat delayed compared to… View this story
