    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   I’ve answered thousands of questions over the years, many of them on the Ask Joe Podcast. I’ve always been intrigued by how much you can tell about a person by listening to the types of questions he/she asks. “What’s the right way to mic lead vocals?” is an example of a question that comes from a person looking for a simple answer to a complex topic. They’re looking for a shortcut.… 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

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   EQ-ing Without Listening First. Are you guilty of this? Come on, be honest. Have you ever opened up a mix and started slapping EQs on every channel and twisting away at the knobs? It’s okay, I’ve done it, too. Do you know why this is a bad idea? Last night I was working on a mix, and the ol’ temptation to throw a bunch of plugins by default came a-calling. I… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Editor’s note: This article originally ran in 2011, but the information is still just as useful and relevant today. A question I’m often asked is “Do You Mix With Headphones”, which I think is something worth discussing. To start, here are a few comments I’ve received in response to this very question: David S. I cater to the most popular form of listening. So far, I’ve found that mixing to headphones… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When you first started using a compressor, you were happy to just have a basic understanding of what the threshold and ratio do, right? At some point, though, you need to learn how to deal with the attack setting. I’ll give you a starting point today. The attack setting simply tells the compressor how quickly it should compress the signal once it crosses the threshold. Note: Don’t confuse attack with ratio.… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   A few years ago my friend Kevin and his wife flew all the way out to Nashville from LA to record vocals for his album in my home studio. We had one week to track vocals for 13 songs. Of course, we spent a lot of time just hanging out and showing them around Nashville, but 7 days was an ideal amount of time. It gave us plenty of time to… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   It happens far too often. People try to create big-sounding mixes using mixing tricks. I’m all for mixing tricks, but I’ve found that the biggest contributor to how big my mix sounds is the production behind it. Specifically, what parts were recorded. I ran into this issue on my most recent EP, which I released late last year. I was mixing one of the songs, and the final chorus simply wasn’t… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When I started recording more seriously, I was spending most of my time in professional studios. Fancy studios are awesome. You’ve got a pretty control room with a big console, patchbay, and couches. You’ve got a nice big tracking room, and you’ve probably got a couple of extra rooms or vocal booths thrown in there. All this is great, however, for those recording in personal studios, chances are the musicians you… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Got a fun list for you today—here are 15 ways to scare away musicians. 1) Act like you know more than they do. 2) Don’t listen to their suggestions. 3) Listen to their suggestions, and then don’t do any of them. 4) Don’t take any time to get to know them…and then criticize their performance during the session…then wonder why they don’t seem comfortable. 5) Check your email, Twitter, and Facebook… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   I attended a Sandra McCracken concert here in Nashville a while back. (She’s one of my faves. Check out her music. You’ll thank me later.) The venue was fairly small and crowded, but I managed to get a spot right next to the sound guy. I love being next to the sound guy. Really good sound engineers are always actively mixing. They don’t “set it and forget it,” then sit down to play… View this story
