    With appearances at the summer’s biggest music festivals and sold out concerts around North America, Southern rock group Alabama Shakes is currently on tour promoting its latest album, Sound & Color. To best feature the group’s unique sound - courtesy of lead singer and guitarist Brittany Howard - front of house and production engineer Shane Haase searched for the most “natural-sounding” equipment, including a Solid State Logic Live L500 Console.

    Ask Aaron Fry how the API 1608 changed his studio and he will tell you it’s the difference between “recording and mixing a great record versus a good record.” Fry runs a uniquely non-profit studio called Electric Sun in Sacramento, CA; he purchased the 1608 from Sonic Circus in May, and he says it quickly became the “perfect centerpiece to the studio.” Fry uses a variety of API racks as well, including the 3124+, which he says “make great companion… View this story

Let’s look at the way everyone expects you to act during the session with these 14 points taken from The Studio Musician’s Handbook. Most of them apply to just about everyone on a session. 1.

    Switzerland’s Thunerseespiele this year featured a world first for TiMax when its SOR audio localization was used to track Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet performed in a massive half-pipe with a cast of BMX stunt bikers and skateboarders.  Billed locally as Romeo and Julia, the ultra-modernized tale of love and tragedy set amidst the legendary feud between Montagues and Capulets was more Upper West Side than romantic Verona. One actor noted the peculiarity of spouting classical prose whilst risking life and… View this story

    When Brad Englander was deciding how to expand his gear list to include a console, he was certain about one thing: “all roads led back to API.” At the time, he already had four 512cs in an API lunchbox, but wanted even more of the “same clean and punchy sound,” so he turned to the 1608, along with a 2500, for the solution. Englander owns “Bassmental”, a studio he runs from his home in Great Falls, Virginia. The studio works… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The people that read my blog run about 50/50, seasoned pros to beginners in the business, and this post is aimed directly at those that don’t have a lot of recording experience. It’s an excerpt from How To Make Your Band Sound Great that covers the mindset of recording, not the technical part. There are so many great artists, bands, musicians, engineers, and producers out there, and so much written about how… View this story
