    Denominational and theological differences between churches are as weak as sewing thread in comparison to the divisive question of drums in a worship service. Where some congregations see a method of regulating tempo and establishing new musical styles, others envision a source of noise and an infiltration of secular values. Should churches incorporate percussion instruments into their musical compositions? If so, how should appropriate use be determined, and by whom? Is an acoustic drum set superior to an electronic one?… View this story

    Acoustic performances, and the instruments themselves, usually need to be handled differently than the electronic side of things. Thumping kick drums, compressed bass guitars and the like are not the norm for performances intended to be more musically subtle. A more natural sound is desired and it starts with microphone choice and deployment. Fortunately, most instruments can be picked up quite nicely with just three types of mics that most sound folks already have in their inventories. A mic locker… View this story

    Ray Luzier moved to the Nashville area over two years ago to take part in its music scene, a way to keep his career as the drummer for Korn (as well as other artists including David Lee Roth, Metal Shop [now known as Steel Panther] and KXM) in high gear and let his family enjoy the culture – a change from Los Angeles, to be sure. One of the first things he did in his new home was convert several… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I created a frog. It wasn’t intentional. Naturally, I’m not talking about a real frog but just look at that photo to the left! You’ll never read a mixing book that says, “Make the snare’s EQ curve look like a frog in water.” If you do, immediately stop reading the book. Seriously, when it comes to snare mixing, the last place you want to be is behind the mixer. There are… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   The kick drum beater just tore clear through the drum head and there’s twenty minutes to replace it.  The drummer, Anthony, has the skills to do it. Not a problem. Wait, what do you mean the spare head doesn’t fit? Bring me the holy gaff tape!  Did it sound great? No, but it sounded good enough and got us through the remaining five songs. These things happen in live audio but… View this story

    When Isaias G. Asbun, front of house engineer and director at Pyramid Sound, was in charge of the sound for Grammy-Award nominated Mexican singer Ana Gabriel’s tour titled “Por Ti,” he packed up his brand new DPA Microphones’ d:vote 4099 Rock Touring Kit to capture the band’s sound. “This was my first time using DPA microphones and I was blown away by the quality,” says Asbun. “I have always chosen my microphones very carefully, and when I tested the DPA… View this story
