    Following a summer on the shed circuit plus a sizable number of theatre gigs, Grace Potter is taking a turn into the fall season with what she calls her “magical midnight road show.” A tour that steps out with synth sounds, sequencers, and arrangements that bear the fruits of her constant musical evolution and experimentation, the show still features her powerhouse vocals, albeit with an added conversational, and at times even funky twist. It’s all in support of Midnight, her… View this story

    The line between live and recording engineers has blurred in recent years with a dramatic increase in recording live shows and events, as well as virtual sound check. Most newer digital consoles and mixers – and even a few analog models – provide some type of onboard recording systems that facilitate at least a basic two-track recording. Several others offer multi-track recording onboard or allow convenient streaming of multi-tracks to a digital audio workstation and/or recorder. With digital networks increasingly… View this story
