    Coast Mastering‘s Piper Payne was mentored by pros like Bob Katz, Thor Legvold, and Michael Romanowski, Payne has earned a notable reputation for superb ears, supported by her deep experience in many musical genres. She works in a precision acoustical environment, with a meticulously selected signal chain of exotic audio gear including products from Manley Labs. “With mastering, you cannot skimp on quality,” Payne insists. “You don’t get into this business to get rich; we’re in it to make quality… View this story

    White2 is a new dual-mono and middle-side parallel solid state mastering equalizer simulation based natively in Acustica Audio core8 engine. White2 was carefully re-sampled and all bands are more responsive than the previous version. This upgrade contains only one skin improved and more realistic which enhances the potential of this software. White2 is an White Sound Mastering studio endorsement, WSM PEQ-2.0 is a solid state parallel equalizer, with dual-mono channel topology designed specifically for mastering. Solid state design gives it… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien. During our interview, Bruce talked more about the philosophy of mixing rather than the nuts and bolts. Here’s an excerpt from that interview, where he talks about hearing in “colors.” Is your approach to mixing each song generally the same? I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this story

    “I’m going to equalize the room.” We’ve all heard that statement so many times that we scarcely think about what it literally means. We know that in practical terms it means adjusting an equalizer to suit your taste. It may be done with the latest high-technology analysis equipment, voodoo magic or simply tweaking away “until it sounds right.” In any case, are we really “equalizing the room”? What exactly are we doing? There are lots of disagreements on this topic… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Today we’ve got a pair of overhead mics we’re going to talk about. They have come to me high passed, low cut, no lows at all. Super compressed and we’re going to look at the before and then we’re going to look at the after soloed and then in context with the drum kit, and then we’re going to talk about why you might want either of those options in… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A while back, I was having a discussion about the sound quality of our monitors with our sax player. He’s a very discriminating guy who really knows sound. If he says he needs 185 cut 3 dB, he needs 185 cut at 3 dB. As we listened to his wedge, it was clear that the sound he was putting out of his horn was not being faithfully reproduced by the wedge. I knew… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Don’t we all have stories of misheard words?  It could have been a song lyric or maybe you misheard your spouse?  Maybe they mumbled a word or it just wasn’t clear what was said.  This has been the cause for a few hilarious moments at our dinner table.  The problem is that unclear words are a distraction from the message.  In the church environment, the pastor’s words must be clear and… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most of us have heard about the New York parallel compression drum mix technique. (Not to be confused with our HOT Drum Setup Tip.) This is where you send a drum mix to a stereo bus and then apply compression to the bus and feed that signal back into the two mix. This method can be used in either very subtle or obvious ways by varying the amount and character of the compression and how… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: This article was originally published through The Rane Library in 2005, yet the information is as relevant now as it was then. Acoustic feedback (also referred to as the Larsen effect) has been roaming around sound reinforcement systems for a very long time, and everyone seems to have their own way to tame the feedback lion. Digital signal processing opened up the microphone to some creative solutions, each with its… View this story
