    Riley Vasquez has deep roots in the music business and production work. The grandson of Bill Hardin, founder of Bill Hardin Music stores, he grew up in Georgia surrounded by instruments, gear and musicians, and with a foundation in church production, he quickly learned the ropes and discovered a passion for mixing live shows at front of house.

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   I have a curmudgeonly hate for modern technology. I like roll-up windows and faucet handles and telling stupid electronics what to do, when, and at what volume. I avoid the automated doors at stores in favor of the pull-handle ones. I think there’s something to human beings, to humans BEING, that technology at its zenith can’t beat. In the world of life, this makes me a dinosaur. In the world of audio, it… View this story

    Karl Winkler’s reference to “great quotes” in his recent column (here) got me thinking about the many (too many to count, in fact) insightful comments that have appeared on the pages of ProSoundWeb and Live Sound International over the years. It lead to a weekend of reading more than a hundred archived articles, and from them, I’ve drawn the following quotes about the world of pro audio. “People don’t come to hear me mix, they come to hear the act.… View this story

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   The recording engineer’s job is to create an environment conducive to musical creativity and then capture that creativity. I often say that. Headphones are usually the only way that a musician will be able to hear themselves and (more importantly) how what they’re playing works with the rest of the band. Every musician will ask to hear themselves much louder than everyone else. This makes sense as it will allow them to play… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Can the congregation tell who’s mixing? The question is not for reasons of pride but for consistency. The congregation should hear a predictable mix each week, and when a new audio tech joins the team, this can be a problem. The new tech could be experienced or fresh off the street. Either way, the mix needs to conform to the standard sound set forth by the audio team. It can be… View this story
