    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

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   In this edition of Home Studio Corner, Joe Gilder discusses a technique utilizing a large ribbon microphone that creates highly desirable depth in a drum session. With a Fat Head mic from Cascade Microphones, and a setup that was practically an afterthought, he discovers a way to thicken up the overall sound even within a smaller isolation room. See the video below for the step-by-step process used to develop this particular… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Today we’ve got a pair of overhead mics we’re going to talk about. They have come to me high passed, low cut, no lows at all. Super compressed and we’re going to look at the before and then we’re going to look at the after soloed and then in context with the drum kit, and then we’re going to talk about why you might want either of those options in… View this story

A capable church musician who plays with feeling, self-awareness and controlled dynamics, not only enhances the worship experience for the entire church but also makes the… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most of us have heard about the New York parallel compression drum mix technique. (Not to be confused with our HOT Drum Setup Tip.) This is where you send a drum mix to a stereo bus and then apply compression to the bus and feed that signal back into the two mix. This method can be used in either very subtle or obvious ways by varying the amount and character of the compression and how… View this story
