    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Weeping, with tears running down my cheeks, I can no longer hide my feelings. The microphone hangs lifeless; the cable, like a noose, suspends it midway down the amp for all to see. Yet the guitarist plays on, oblivious. Poor amp miking strikes again. Mixing electric guitars should be easier like mixing acoustic guitars or vocals. Know the guitar’s sound, know the song arrangement, and blend accordingly. That’s a bit simplified,… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the JDX Direct-Drive is now shipping. The JDX Direct-Drive simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box. In other words, with the JDX Direct-Drive on a pedalboard, you can do a gig without carrying an amp to the club. Radial’s Central Territory manager, David ‘Shuu’ Guidish, spent almost two decades on stage as a guitar tech with various bands including a ten year stint with Nickelback.  According to Shuu: “On the… View this story

    Being the online forum lurker that I sometimes am, there are times when I’m struck by a pattern or trend that was never clear before (for whatever reason). It happened just a while ago, and the context is relevant to what we do in our business of live sound. This particular discussion, on a music forum, was a thread about “the great tone we’ve spent years perfecting that is destroyed when it goes through a PA.” (You guessed it –… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Lusting after large diaphragm condenser (LDC) microphones has become a national pastime. Newbies devour the recording magazines and read about this artist and that artist recording to vintage U-47’s or Tele 251’s and believe that they need those same mics, (or too often a design copy from China) to get a “hit” record. However, the acoustic conditions that exist in the average home studio or even small pro studio do not lend themselves to the… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Once upon a time, Joe made a stupid mistake. I was recording a bunch of acoustic guitar tracks for an album project. I was super-excited. I had set aside an entire afternoon to knock out all the songs. Also, I had just gotten a brand new microphone, and was going to use it along with another mic to record the guitar in stereo. All was right with the world. I set… View this story

    Universal Audio announces the release of UAD Software v8.6, featuring the Fender ’55 Tweed Deluxe — the first 100% UA-developed guitar amplifier plugin — exclusively for Apollo interfaces and UAD-2 hardware. One of Leo Fender’s first and finest amp designs, the Fender Deluxe was introduced in 1946. After various circuit tweaks, Fender eventually landed on the now historic “wide-panel” 5E3 Deluxe in 1955. This amplifier’s touch-sensitivity has a dynamic range from clean and sweet, to overdriven raunch that’s made it… View this story

Designed from the ground up to deliver studio quality compression in a stomp box format. Op-2 Comp offers a wide, well balanced frequency response, which makes it suitable for both electric guitar and bass. Unlike its predecessor, Opti-Mu Prime, Op-2 Comp dishes out a very clean sound with low noise. It manages to do this while… View this story

    For the past eight years, the challenge of bringing Maroon 5’s studio sparkle and sheen to the live stage has been trusted to veteran front of house engineer Jim Ebdon, who is also well known for his many tours with Aerosmith, Annie Lennox and Matchbox Twenty. Recently, Ebdon has been carrying several products from A-Designs Audio, including a KGB-1tf instrument preamplifier, REDDI all-tube direct inject box and electrodyne 501 mic preamp (from sibling company Pete’s Place Audio), and been delighted… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces that the MR5 is now shipping. The MR5 is a MIDI signal translator that allows you to use a MIDI controller to control the JX44, JX42 or any other Radial products that use the JR5 footswitch. The MR5 converts the MIDI data stream from the controller to the same data format used by the JR5, allowing the musician to handle instrument and amplifier switching with a sequencer, control pedal or any other MIDI control setup. The MR5’s… View this story
