    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Brad I’ve been with a country artist for several years now and I have experienced this distortion on his vocal mic only on several occasions. (way to often) I have experienced this both on our touring consoles / systems (SC48) and on walk up consoles / systems. Everything from giant Milo rigs to small night club… View this story

    Described as a multimedia song cycle inspired by the Persian queen, storyteller and feminist icon Scheherazade, “The Scheherazade Project” is a curated concert that debuted at the New York Electro-Acoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF). The performance, which featured the works of string quartet PUBLIQuartet in conjunction with indie rock duo HOLLANDS and visual artist Amy Khoshbin, spun the collection of tales from the classic “One Thousand and One Nights.” During the project, PUBLIQuartet utilized DPA Microphones’ d:vote 4099 instrument microphones for… View this story

    For as long as I can remember, there has been a sound created by an instrument that spells rock ‘n’ roll with just a letter and a number: B3. That’s the Hammond B3 organ to those who don’t know the code. The B3 was first used by churches to stand in for far more expensive pipe organs, and at about one-hundredth of the price, it (as well as its fancy sister C3 and home version A-100, which all have the… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   When most people think of stereo recording, the first thing that comes to mind is a matched pair of microphones, arranged in a coincident (XY) pattern. It makes sense, of course, since that’s the closest way to replicate a real pair of human ears. But while XY microphone recording is the most obvious method, it’s not the only game in town. The Mid-Side (MS) microphone technique sounds a bit more complex, but it offers some… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Microphone choice and technique have a powerful affect on the amplified sound of a reinforcement system. The sound picked up might be “natural,” “boomy,” “thin,” “colored” and any other number of descriptive terms that are applied to a sonic signature. It’s usually most desirable to attain “natural” sound. But what does that mean? I define it as the tonal balance heard with our ears in front of a musical instrument, a few… View this story

    Don Gunn is an enterprising recording/mixing engineer, producer, drummer, and programmer, based in Seattle. With credits that include Soundgarden, Peter Frampton, Death Cab for Cutie, and scores of others, Gunn relies heavily on his dynamic and condenser TELEFUNKEN microphones. “The core of my drum sound starts with an M80 dynamic on the snare, an M82 in the kick drum, and a pair of CU-29 Copperheads for overheads,” Gunn explains. “This gives me the foundation for a larger-than-life sounding drum kit.”… View this story
