    If you’ve seen the Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter movie, you might recall Jimmy Johnson’s brief speaking role. He was the one coaching Keith Richards on the proper Alabama pronunciation of “Y’all come back, y’hear.” For three nights in December of 1969, the Stones cut basic tracks and live vocals for three songs: “You Gotta Move,” “Wild Horses” and “Brown Sugar.” The sessions took place at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios—the “burlap palace” at 3614 Jackson Highway—a nondescript former casket factory which… View this story

    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this story

    It seems to me that over the course of many years and many technological “advances,” we have once again come to an age-old question: where is the line of acceptability? As recording techniques, and production ethics change as quickly as we receive DAW updates and debug programs, I think we need to pause for a bit of reflection. It is, of course, a well-accepted theory that you can’t properly embrace the future until you understand the past. So, let’s take… View this story

    David Scheirman 02/01/16 06:25 PM,
    From the April 1983 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, David Scheirman takes a look inside the Willie Nelson & Family tour of 1983. It is perhaps safe to say that the Willie Nelson organization has been spending more production dollars for sound and lighting than most other country-oriented acts. Nelson’s house mix engineer, Mike Garvey, of Dallas, Texas, explains hie part in the decision-making process when it came down to choosing a sound system for the… View this story

Multi-miking drums. Until Emerick began to experiment, the drum kit was picked up by a maximum of two mics - one on kick drum and the other as an overhead above the snare. In order to get a bigger drum sound, Emerick introduced a mic on… View this story
