    As a large human, you can rest assured that I know a few things about food. Following a similar train of thought, after more than twenty years in professional audio, I know a little about sound. I guess my ears serve a similar purpose as my taste buds. They know what they like. That concept hit me after a shopping error, when unintentionally purchased a box of artificially flavored instant grits. Not just any artificial flavor, either. This packaging claimed… View this story

    Waves Audio announces that the Waves Abbey Road Reverb Plates plugin is now shipping. Introduced over half a century ago, plate reverbs have been a fixture of recorded music ever since. Used most prominently in the ‘60s and ‘70s by pioneering bands, including the Beatles and Pink Floyd, Abbey Road Studios’ original reverb plates — four EMT 140 units — were first installed in 1957 to complement the fixed reverberation times of the studios’ echo chambers. These beautiful-sounding plates, with… View this story

    This article is provided by DerekSoundGuy.com. Delay is very much what it’s described to be, it delays the signal. It can be a very noticeable effect on any instrument, most notably guitars. The Edge from U2 is recognized for his use of delay, and it’s become a very common effect used in worship music as well. Delay takes the original “dry” signal and repeats it as many times as we tell it to, at the tempo we tell it to.… View this story

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   At the heart of what we call “effects” in professional audio is the delaying of sound. Virtually any audio effect - reverb, flanging, chorusing, phaser, echoing, looping, etc. - uses (and manipulates) delay in one form or another. You’ve probably heard the repetition of a person’s words in a large canyon. The first sound is the voice arriving directly to our ears, and then moments later, the voice repeats after the sound… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Recently, I was working with an artist, Elizabeth Ziman. Elizabeth brought in a really interesting song that sonically reminded me of being in the half state of dreaming. I wanted to try to find a way to embellish the sound of the piano to psychologically put you in that state of mind while listening to the song. This song is basically a solo piano with a really lovely airy vocal… View this story

    What is dynamic range? Dynamic range can be defined as the distance between the loudest possible level to the lowest possible level. For example, if a processor states that the maximum input level before distortion is +24 dBu and the output noise floor is -92 dBu, then the processor has a total dynamic range of 24 + 92 = 116 dB. However, the average dynamic range of an orchestral performance can range from - 50 dBu to +10 dBu on… View this story
