    SongCraft Presents partners Ben Arthur, Mike Crehore, Al Houghton, Matthew Hendershot, and Rob Reinhart work with an established singer-songwriter to compose and record a song in the span of just three short hours. That time constraint often inspires the artist in collaboration with Ben Arthur – an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right – to create something fresh and unencumbered. Matthew Hendershot captures the entire process, using Metric Halo ULN-8 and ULN-2 interfaces, which is later edited to highlight the… View this story

    As a member of the band Fall Out Boy, Joe Trohman saw the release of their sixth album, “American Beauty/American Psycho”, debut at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200. Unlike the band’s previous albums, much of this record was cut on Trohman’s personal API 1608 console, purchased last year through salesman Jeff Leibovich at API dealer Vintage King.  As the record made its ascent, Trohman took time out of the usual promotional frenzy to handle a family emergency. Then,… View this story

    With multiple awards and more than ninety-seven million albums sold, producer Michael Wagener is best known for metal recordings since the 1980s from Ozzy Osborne, Mötley Crüe, Metallica, and Dokken to Skid Row, W.A.S.P., Poison, Great White, Megadeth, and more. One of the key elements behind nearly all of Wagener’s heavy mixes is Manley Labs’ Massive Passive EQ. Wagener eschews adding EQ to individual instruments while recording, preferring to get the sounds he’s after during the tracking phase. “I generally… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Recently I asked my Twitter followers to complete and RT the phrase “You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve ____” It was a lot of fun to see the replies. I didn’t really expect serious answers. theaudiogeek: You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve made your own cables. timgosden: You’re not a real audio engineer until you’ve become a coffee snob.

    Capitol Studios, where recordings from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and The Beach Boys made the space historic, has a legacy to maintain, and Art Kelm takes the job very seriously.  As Kelm purchases and maintains the equipment necessary to keep Capitol Studios on the cutting-edge of recording technology, he relies on Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro). “Basically, I am the main person responsible for purchasing decisions,” he adds. “But I think I’m a pragmatic guy when… View this story

    Barrie Gledden has recorded music for MTV, Disney, Nintendo, Nickelodeon, and for television, films, and video games—and those are just the highlights of his career. While his resume is extensive, his advice to those looking into buying API gear is decidedly more succinct: “Do it. Don’t even think about it.”           How did Gledden, an international producer and writer, become so decided on API gear? The answer to that is simple, too; he upgraded from modules… View this story

    Front of house engineer Jon Garber (The Band Perry, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Brian McComas, Julie Roberts) uses DiGiGrid MGO and Waves MultiRack to run Waves plugins on tour with The Band Perry. Garber notes: “In this production I am using a Studer Vista 5SR. In order to use Waves tools in low latency on my console, I’ve incorporated the SoundGrid technology using a DiGiGrid MGO optical MADI interface, SoundGrid DSP Server One, and a Mac Mini with the MultiRack… View this story

    Have you ever wondered why some recording artists and producers are more successful in the studio at accomplishing their goals than other people who are equally or more musically talented? As a recording engineer, here’s what I’ve noticed about successful people in the studio. Vision I’ve found successful people come in all personality types from the very shy and soft-spoken to the boisterous extrovert but they all share a common trait: they have a very specific “vision” of their songs… View this story

    The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota inaugurated its new Concert Hall in March 2015 with a month-long grand opening celebration, Rock the Ordway, which featured an eclectic selection of music. Built at a cost of over $40 million and now the new home of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO), the Concert Hall features three DiGiCo mixing consoles—an SD9 at front-of-house, an SD9B at the monitor position and another SD9B in the studio—on an Optocore… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Churches aren’t packed with angelic voices, at least from an audio engineer’s perspective. Instead, there’s a variety of vocal talent; from the first-timer to the experienced singer and if one’s lucky, a trained singer. But the real problem isn’t the talent level, it’s what they’re tasked to do. A common production phrase says the quality of the mix depends on the quality of sound coming from the stage. It’s for this… View this story
