    Radial Engineering has announced the Voco-Loco, a combination microphone preamp and effects loop insert that enables a lead vocalist, brass instrumentalist or harmonica player to incorporate guitar effects pedals into their signal path.  Just like an electric guitarist adds effects for soloing such as delay, reverb or distortion, this option is now available to anyone’s performance by engaging a simple footswitch. The design begins with a high-performance preamp section that delivers over 60 dB of gain, more than enough to… View this story

    By using basic four track equipment, three very desirable and unusual variations of echo effects can be created. Duplication of these effects using other methods requires the use of additional tracks, more equipment and more time. The first effect, which is called (Signal Trace “A” in the diagram below) is a thing we call “angle echo.” This effect will produce a repeated signal, and is used to enhance any background, vocal or percussive effect. It is extremely useful for enriching… View this story

    live sound effects
    Tim Andras 04/24/12 03:07 PM,
    On rare days off from running sound, I get the opportunity to go to several local clubs to check out the work of other mix engineers. This is really cool because I pick up tips that can help my own work, in addition to experiencing a wide range of gear. One thing in particular that I pay close attention to is effects, and I find that in most every case, some type of effect is applied on almost every instrument… View this story

    An important consideration in microphone use is acoustic interference, which can occur whenever delayed versions of the same sound are mixed together, acoustically or electrically. With mics, this may happen in several ways: mics of reverse polarity picking up the same sound, multiple mics picking up the same sound from different distances, a single mic picking up multiple reflections of the same sound, or any combination of these. The results are similar in each case, and include audible peaks and… View this story

    rep recording phasing
    Jerry Ferree 06/10/11 02:31 PM,
    Everyone who listens to pop music has at some time heard that weird swishing effect swooping down through a drum solo or a vocal group making them sound rather like a long-distance short wave broadcast. Most engineers will tell you that this is caused by phasing, yet most have only a vague idea of the mechanics involved and few still are able to produce a controlled effect. Let’s take a quick look at what happens to produce this effect and… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Reverb is a beautiful effect that gives us the ability to bring a fuller sound to an instrument.  Reverb can be used to spatially place an instrument in a mix such as sitting in the background.  We can also kill our mix with reverb if we use too much or we use the wrong type of reverb.  Here are three standard types of reverb and how they can be used… First,… View this story

    Pendulum Audio has announced the introduction of the DS-500 De-esser at the 130th AES Convention in London. The DS-500 is the second Pendulum product designed specifically for the 500 series format. The DS-500 is a single channel, non-tube version of the De-esser in the Pendulum Quartet Tube Recording Channel. It uses the same highly selective inductive detector and opto-inductive notch filter as the the de-esser in the Quartet, so it has the same characteristics, and very fast response. By pairing… View this story
