    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   If you’ve been mixing for any length of time, you know how valuable the high-pass filter (HPF) can be. 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

    Manley Labs announced the CORE, an analog channel strip.  CORE is an innovative and affordable mic preamplifier, compressor, equalizer, and limiter combo-unit that combines the greatest hits of the Manley product line with fresh technology.  The intuitive design incorporates musical and forgiving circuitry that allows the user to concentrate on performance rather than be lost in a sea of knobs.  No other channel strip at this price point offers higher headroom or higher end sound than the CORE, which is,… View this story

      This article is provided by AudioFanzine.   As an engineer/producer, one of my biggest early challenges was getting my mixes to sound as polished and balanced as the mixes of songs on my favorite albums. Living in Nashville, I knew the problem wasn’t the players (some of whom had even played on those same favorite albums). I also knew that I was happy enough with the sounds I was recording because when I’d solo a particular track, I liked… View this story

    2012 was a big year for mixer F. Reid Shippen, having taken home two statues out of his seven Grammy nominations. Shippen mixes in his Nashville studio and utilizes the sonic fingerprint of several pieces of Dangerous Music hardware. His two Grammy wins this year are for Best Country Duo/Group Performance with his mix of the song “Pontoon” for Little Big Town, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for mixing TobyMac’s “Eye On It” album. Shippen is also nominated for… View this story

    The University of Utah’s Libby Gardner Hall is large enough to comfortably accommodate a 200-member choir, an 80-piece orchestra, and nearly 700 audience members. It is acoustically and aesthetically stunning, with a warm, rich reverb conveyed by wood panel walls arranged in a spectacular geometry. For years, the school struggled to provide the hall with sound reinforcement for spoken word, solos, and non-classical musical forms that matched the splendor of unamplified instruments. That struggle ended with the purchase of a… View this story

    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

    Train Your Ears  has announced the release of TrainYourEars EQ Edition, the first of a series of software programs dedicated to training the ears of sound engineers. The training system works by generating a random processed version from an original signal. After listening to both the original and the processed audio the user must guess which parameters were used to create the processed one. Through repetitions the user will learn the real effect of each parameter (or combination of parameters)… View this story
