    If one follows the literature (and street talk) in both the audiophile and professional sound communities, “equalization” is a very bad thing. If you use it, you get, in no particular order, comb filtering, phase shift, lack of transparency, non-linear response, one note bass, harshness, mid-fi sound, lack of neutrality, proof of your status as an amateurish guitar-store soundman, as well as proof of your status (from the audiophile perspective) as a deaf knuckle-dragging roadie. Standing on Mars, as they… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the Headload Prodigy - a combination load box and DI that enables one to drive a guitar amp at a higher output in order to maximize the tone, yet produce a lower stage volume when needed. Like the original Headload, the Prodigy employs cement-encrusted resister coils to covert the excessive power from the amplifier to heat and is able to withstand up to 100 watts RMS. The Prodigy may be used in three different ways, depending on… View this story

It removes excess low end from your non-bass-heavy tracks, allowing you to clean up the low frequencies, making room for the kick and bass. But then there’s this thing called a low frequency shelf. What’s that all about? In the picture below you can see both a high-pass filter and a low-frequency shelf. A… View this story

    Do you remember how you were taught to use EQ? Were you really taught, or did you just figure it out? One of the questions that I get asked all the time is how I know what to adjust on the EQ section of the console. I’ve found that if you can make it into a numbers game, turning the right knob becomes second nature. When I teach sound, one of the things that we spend a lot of time… View this story
