    Like many musicians who have a knack and interest in the technical side of things, Seth Glassman branched out into songwriting and production decades ago. He maintains a well-equipped project studio in his New York City home that includes his go-to Daking Audio preamps and compressors, which were recently supplemented by a borrowed Daking FET III compressor to mix a forthcoming album by all-girl power trio New Myths. Glassman is an accomplished bass player and multi-instrumentalist whose thirty-plus year career… View this story

    Manley Labs announced the CORE, an analog channel strip.  CORE is an innovative and affordable mic preamplifier, compressor, equalizer, and limiter combo-unit that combines the greatest hits of the Manley product line with fresh technology.  The intuitive design incorporates musical and forgiving circuitry that allows the user to concentrate on performance rather than be lost in a sea of knobs.  No other channel strip at this price point offers higher headroom or higher end sound than the CORE, which is,… View this story

    Since joining Sarm Studios in 2005, Graham Archer has moved up the ranks to become one of Trevor Horn’s top in-house engineers. Having recently engineered recordings for Seal, Robbie Williams, Massive Attack, Ellie Goulding and Madonna, Archer is often found in Sarm’s London or Los Angeles studio reaching for his A-Designs Audio HM2 NAIL compressor/limiter. Purchased last summer, Archer’s NAIL spends most of its time on either the drum buss during tracking sessions or across the two-buss when mixing. The… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Mastering audio is somewhat of a mystery to many who aren’t a mastering engineer or who haven engineered many released records. Not only is the process somewhat of a mystery, it’s a misunderstood mystery as well. So I thought it might be a good idea to do a brief overview, excerpted from “The Audio Mastering Handbook”. Technically speaking, mastering is the intermediate step between mixing your audio and preparing it to be… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Not everyone can afford professional mastering, and it’s so easy to do it yourself these days thanks to some great and affordable tools. The problem is that these tools are so powerful that it’s really easy to get into trouble and wind up with a product that’s a lot worse than what you started with. The process that causes all the trouble is over-EQing. This is especially true when an engineer is… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Hardly a mix is completed these days without the engineer placing a compressor across the mix bus, even if they’re not sure exactly why they’re doing it. Here’s an excerpt from Mixing And Mastering With T-RackS which explains both why a bus compressor is used, and how to properly set one up. Along with compressing the individual track of a song, many engineers place a stereo compressor across the mix bus to… View this story
