    Countryman EMW omnidirectional lavalier microphones were vital during a recent studio shoot for an online peer exchange among a community of oncologists. The event, held at BlueRock Productions in Baltimore, consisted of five doctors who were actively engaged in a constructive and lively discussion about the current state of cancer pharmacology. The ability to ensure clean, clear dialog was essential on this project and the EMW microphones did not disappoint. Ty Ford, a Baltimore, MD-based location sound mixer was contracted… View this story

    The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, traditionally held the weekend before the live Primetime Emmys telecast, are largely dedicated to key technical disciplines and behind-the-scenes crafts essential to television production, including art direction, cinematography, music, picture editing, sound editing and mixing, and more. This year’s event, held in mid-September at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE, saw several celebrities, actors and personalities on hand to present the awards. Sound & Picture, the crew-centric entertainment industry publication that covers a variety… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   An excerpt from The Recording Engineer’s Handbook.   Basic tracks (sometimes called just “basics” or “tracking”) refers to the recording of the rhythm section, and is the foundation for any other parts that are to be recorded afterward. What that means is that if there’s something faulty in the recording of the basics, it’s usually going to cost time and money to fix it later. That’s why it’s essential that the basic… View this story

    Last weekend in Music City, the Nashville Section of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) held its Vocal Microphone Invitational at Belmont University’s Ocean Way Nashville, Studio A. This free event focused on capturing vocals in the studio and live on stage, and included live a cappella vocal performances by male and female vocalists through a wide variety of studio and live vocal microphones. The day-long event was capped off by a discussion with an all-star panel of studio and live… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Condenser microphones need phantom power to operate their internal circuitry. The power is supplied to the mic through its 2-conductor shielded cable, and can be provided either from a stand-alone device or from a mixing console (at each mic connector). The microphone receives power from, and sends audio to, the mixer along the same cable conductors. It’s called “phantom” because the power does not need a separate cable; it’s “hiding” in the… View this story

    At the NASCAR Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July, the opening ceremonies featured popular country singer/songwriter Justin Moore and his band performing with PM9 handheld microphones from Nashville-based Miktek. Front of house engineer Jeff Oliver states, “The Miktek PM9 is awesome right out of the box. I know it will sound like him, it will work, and I won’t have to adjust anything.” Steve Durr, a noted acoustical consultant who’s responsible for all audio systems at the… View this story

    Audio-Technica is proud to be an integral part of the recording setup for progressive metal superstars Dream Theater as they record their highly anticipated upcoming self-titled twelfth studio set, scheduled for release on September 24 from Roadrunner Records.  The band’s engineer on this album and past projects, Richard Chycki (whose credits also include Rush, Aerosmith, Needtobreathe, Our Lady Peace and others), has been a longtime fan of Audio-Technica microphones. “I regularly use several models of Audio-Technica mics for their sound… View this story

    microphones
    Gary Parks 09/11/13 10:19 AM,
    Expanding on the basic technologies of dynamic and condenser transducers, manufacturers continue to develop new microphones to meet the needs of musicians and sound engineers in a range of formats, sizes, and price points. In more recent introductions, we’re seeing a mix of innovative development, refinement of previous technologies, specialization of mics to specific applications, and changes in manufacturing.  Higher end condenser vocal mics are truly amazing devices, and even most of the relatively inexpensive models are durable, reliable, and… View this story

    As headliners of the 2013 Summer Tour, Matchbox Twenty gives public expression to not only the post-grunge music that vaulted the band into the limelight in the late-‘90s, but to its newer material and covers of all sorts. Behind-the-scenes, it’s a community effort on all levels, grounded with solid production values that would easily make the show a contender for “Best Place to Work in Live Audio” honors if such an award actually existed. “I’m extremely fortunate on this gig,”… View this story
