    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Have you ever mixed a song and really struggled to make the vocals cut through? The typical tricks involve equalizing out some lows or boost some highs, but that doesn’t always work. Plus, sometimes all that EQ leave the original vocal feeloing flat and lifeless. Another option is to really squeze the track with compression, but even still sometime that doesn’t have the desired effect, and even worse, there are times when the… View this story

    Joe Gilder 03/25/14 05:18 PM,
    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   I listen to a lot of recordings, and one mistake that I find very often in a beginner’s recording is that they don’t record acoustic guitars with microphones. Now, this is certainly my opinion, but I feel that acoustic guitar was meant to be recorded with a microphone. The direct sound of an acoustic guitar just never sounds good to me. I am an acoustic guitar player, so I’m certainly biased, and there… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Whether it’s a documentary on your favorite band, a movie scene in a recording studio, or a full-page ad in Sweetwater‘s latest catalog, one common theme exists: vocalists use large-diaphragm condenser microphones. I’m not a big fan of the phrase “that’s how we’ve always done it.” Certainly we should learn from the experience of others, but doing something just because everyone else does it leads to a fairly boring experience. Do I use… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Since I’m both a singer and an audio guy, I’ve spent a lot of time mixing my own voice. Whether it’s voiceover stuff for my two different podcasts and videos or simply me singing lead vocals on a tune, I’ve logged hundreds of hours listening to and mixing my own voice. At this point, when I’m mixing one of my own songs, I can usually EQ the lead vocal in less than 60… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   OK, so you’re getting ready to start recording that next hit album. You’ve got the musicians lined up, you’ve scheduled your sessions. Now what? Do you jump right in and start recording? Easy there, Tiger. There’s an important step that needs to happen next: pre-production. What Is It? Pre-production is the planning phase for the entire album. It’s where you take a song in its simplest form (usually a guitar-vocal or piano-vocal) and… View this story

    Joe Gilder 02/10/14 02:23 PM,
    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Joe Gilder frequently talks about how equipment isn’t the “end-all, be-all” in the pursuit of recording and creative excellence, instead focusing on the importance of being able to use what you already have to its utmost, and further, to strive for constant improvement in technique and then put that into practice. However, his big exception to the rule is when a new tool can be used to make a definitively enhancement to the… View this story

    Article 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. Ratio tells… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   In the following video, Joe Gilder talks about various styles of capturing a recording. Specifically, do you prefer takes or punching? And what works best for the particular artist and session? Takes, of course, are usually the longer form, working to get the track down in extended sessions. On the other hand, there’s punching, which is a much shorter “stop and go” format. It can work to speed the process and help quickly… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   In a key segment in his “Getting It Right At The Source” series, Joe focuses on microphone placement issues in these two videos. First, he provides context and dispels some of the myths generated by marketing hype—in particular, avoiding the proximity effect that occurs when mics are close to sources. Next, he focuses on nifty stereo techniques, including a focus on the highly effective X-Y approach that helps with phase issues that can… View this story

    stereo delay
    Joe Gilder 01/07/14 02:12 PM,
    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Here’s a straightforward technique to get a quality stereo delay sound within about 30 seconds. The technique Joe’s demonstrating here can work with a variety of DAW plug-ins. (He’s using Groove Delay.) Essentially, you want any type of delay that provides multiple taps, and you’re going to use two of them. In the video, Joe provides examples and quickly builds a sample, and he also addresses related aspects of the technique. Give it… View this story
