    mic techniques

    Living in South Central Texas, we operate in a very diverse ethnic atmosphere and encounter every description of strange and unusual instrument. Over time, we (and our engineers) have discovered some techniques that work well for some of these applications. There may be other, possibly better ways to accomplish the task. But the following represent tried and true methods that work for us, as well as the musicians we support. Accordion. What do you call 100 accordions in the Rio… View this story

    This article is provided by Church   I played keyboards in rock and roll bands for twelve years before I went back to school to get my music engineering degree from the University of Miami (a Bachelor of Music degree with a minor in electrical engineering). I got saved just out of college, got my career started, and got married a few years later. As a recording and sound reinforcement engineer since 1980, I still love rock and roll… View this story

    As a live and studio sound engineer, one of the challenges that front of house engineer John Buitrago faces daily is maintaining balance between the final studio production and the live elements of the band on tour, especially the drums. For Latin American performer J. Balvin, the drummer is an essential part of the rhythm. In order to find the space for a kick, snare and toms, Buitrago relies on DPA Microphones’ d:vote 4099D instrument microphones for drums. J. Balvin… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   It goes without saying that I consider drums to be the most important part of most current rock-oriented music. Starting out my career as a drummer, I pay a considerable amount of attention to the specific details of drums and cymbals and the individual technique of the drummer. Anyone who’s attended SeedsConf or SeedsU has no doubt heard us mention the importance we place on getting (and keeping) the drums… View this story

    Drums are the foundation of just about any kind of music, and a great drum sound is essential to a great recording, but that sound can be elusive. The Drum Recording Handbook, Second Edition, uncovers the secrets of making amazing drum recordings, even using the most inexpensive gear. When asked why he wrote this book, author and producer Bobby Owsinski answers: “There are lots of books and courses that give you tips on drum miking, but they always approach it… View this story

    I’ve been to my fair share of church services, and more than my fair share of contemporary/modern church services. Some of the mixes I hear are fantastic! Some of them, however, are less than stellar. I’d like to think I know it all, but know enough to understand that’s completely not true. Certain mixes hit my ear different than others, and that’s O.K. All I can offer is what I believe to be that modern, pop-y Christian mix. I need… View this story

    When live studio audio mixer and owner of EAG Productions Eduardo A. García heads out on tour with urban artists Alkilados and Totó La Momposina, he always makes sure to bring along his trusted DPA Microphones. “I first used DPA microphones during two European tours in 2014 and 2015 with Totó la Momposina, and they were wonderful,” says Garcia. “DPA microphones are very common in Europe, especially the d:vote instrument microphones with brass and Latin percussion sections. I was interested… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   What if I told you I knew a trick to save a dimpled drum head? I have been a rock music engineer for many years and in the early 1980’s found myself working with some major producers on some good bands and using typical studio procedures from the time. For a label act, the initial procedures involved a series of steps getting the drums ready to record. First, we could spend an entire day with… View this story
