    Are effect tools or toys? The answer is, it depends. In the hands of a seasoned operator, time-based effects deepen the sonic landscape and present a clarified image of the proceedings. However, when wielded by a careless knob-jockey, effects tend to cheapen the sound and draw attention away from the message of the song. The difference between tool and toy falls to understanding the effect’s purpose and its role within the larger scope of the song. Fortunately, the learning curve… View this story

    In the 1970s and early 80s, Dan Slater worked in Hollywood on special effects system design under the tutelage of special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull (2001: A Space Odyssey).

In recent years, Slater became interested in merging the best parts of aerospace and cinema technologies. After a digital video recorder crashed… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Getting a little bored with the same old “tried-and-true” microphones and techniques? Let’s have some fun with fresh approaches that are off the beaten path. Vocals To create a differential (noise-canceling) mic, tape two identical omni mics together, one over the other, separated by a block of wood (Figure 1). Mix both mics at equal levels but with one mic switched in opposite polarity. Have the performer sing close to the top… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Let me start off by saying that I am not a vocal producer. I am an engineer that has worked with tons of vocalists and producers. Given this, I have a good understanding of how to layer vocals. Unfortunately, there is no one idea that will work for vocals as a whole. With so many different styles and genres of music, my attempt is to spark ideas only. One thing I do know for certain,… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Editor’s note: This is part 2 of a 3 part series. You can read Part 1 here. If you listen very long to anything I’ve mixed, you may discover that I like using effects. Over many years and through much trial and error, I’ve found that my mixes translate better to the listener with a fairly liberal amount of effects thrown in.
