    Special Event Services (SES) of Winston-Salem, NC recently purchased a new Yamaha PM10 Digital Audio Console and immediately put it out on tour with monitor engineer David Baker for Lynyrd Skynyrd. “After having owned many of the original PM1Ds, we were eagerly awaiting its successor, states vice president/co-owner/head of audio, Jason Farah. The Yamaha PM1D was such a reliable platform, there was no question we’d add the PM10 to our inventory.” Farah said SES still owns and uses Yamaha digital… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   You don’t have to be the president of CBS Records to notice that the recording industry has changed a great deal in the last decade or two. For most artists, gone are the days of large multi-million dollar budgets for album projects. Nowadays, the recording process has got to be streamlined and efficient in order to be effective.  But even in the old days, there were certain things that bands would do to maximize their… View this story

    From the February 1984 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Dave Brody shares some hard-earned secrets of success for surviving studio drama… Okay, so you know all about the system gain structure, the recorders, and every toy in the outboard rack. You’ve got the console layout under your fingers, and can play it in your sleep. Using your extensive musical background, you make edits so smooth and tight that they all swear the chart was written that… View this story

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Some terms: The Fast Fourier Transform is an algorithm optimization of the DFT—Discrete Fourier Transform. The “discrete” part just means that it’s an adaptation of the Fourier Transform, a continuous process for the analog world, to make it suitable for the sampled digital world. Most of the discussion here addresses the Fourier Transform and its adaptation to the DFT. When it’s time for you to implement the transform in a program, you’ll… View this story

    I started out wanting to write about the design task of coming up with hybrid microphone and pickup rigs for Punch Brothers (a progressive acoustic band that I work with) and building a completely self-contained stage and mix system. But that initial focus has changed, where I now feel the need to share some of what I’ve learned by plugging it in to many different sound systems, as well as offer some observations on stuff that works and stuff that… View this story

    Editor’s note: This originally ran in 2011 as an excerpt from Howard Massey’s “Behind The Glass Volume II,” which features more than 40 all-new, exclusive in-depth interviews with many of the world’s top producers and engineers. Joe Chiccarelli is a chameleon. Not literally, of course. But unlike many producers whose sonic stamp is immediately recognizable (a Roy Thomas Baker or a John Shanks, for example), you’d be hard pressed to identify a Joe Chiccarelli “sound.” It’s hard to believe that… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Punchy drums are what every engineer aims for in a mix and there’s definitely a way to get there. Sometimes just using the right compressors can do the trick, but most of the time it requires some adjustment of the parameters to really get the sound you’re looking for. Here’s a few excerpts from my Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, Audio Mixing Bootcamp and Drum Recording Handbook books all culled together for an overview… View this story

    The music industry has lost a legend. Sir George Martin has passed away at the age of 90. The former head of EMI’s Parlophone Records recognized the potential within the Beatles, namely the vocal harmonies between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. His work with the band led to 23 Number One hits in the US and 30 in the UK. He is credited with adding the engineering skills of Geoff Emerick to the trail-blazing team after Norman Smith, the Beatles’… View this story
