    Have you ever wondered why some recording artists and producers are more successful in the studio at accomplishing their goals than other people who are equally or more musically talented? As a recording engineer, here’s what I’ve noticed about successful people in the studio. Vision I’ve found successful people come in all personality types from the very shy and soft-spoken to the boisterous extrovert but they all share a common trait: they have a very specific “vision” of their songs… View this story

    Old Soundman, Yes, Stip! I occasionally run sound for a band that tends to play local hole-in-the-wall venues. Okay, we feel sorry for you, now move on! The “stage” for the band is always in one of 2 places: in a nice boomy corner, or, better yet, right in front of that brick or paneled wall. These are the times that try men’s souls! I guess you might be a female, so no offense intended. I don’t know what “Stip”… View this story

    Dear Old Soundman, One of the bands I mix (that does corporate shows) has an older bass player who does nothing but complain about the sound every night. “It’s too high-end-y, the sax should sound fuller, forget the singers! Turn their damn monitors down now! You suck, get your ears fixed, etc.” Yes, but does he say anything about turkey basters? Now I should note that he is not the leader of the band, nor does he sign my check.… View this story

    The band Flying Colors—consisting of drummer Mike Portnoy, keyboardist Neal Morse, bassist Dave LaRue, and guitarists Steve Morse and Casey McPherson - boasts an astounding pedigree that includes a litany of highly acclaimed bands (Dream Theater, Dixie Dregs, Kansas, Alpha Rev, Deep Purple, Transatlantic, Spock’s Beard) and a seemingly endless list of stage and studio credits.  The band members’ busy schedules created some challenges in recording their debut album, with only a scant few days available for the band and… View this story

    Music producer, writer and mastering engineer Paul Grundman has installed a pair of IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R155 acoustic-isolating monitor stands at his project studio to optimize the performance of his nearfield monitor speakers and ameliorate some of the control room’s acoustic irregularities. IsoAcoustics innovative speaker stands have a unique, patented isolation technology which effectively eliminates the transfer of energy to surrounding surfaces, providing better focus across the frequency spectrum along with enhanced stereo imaging.

    live sound effects
    Tim Andras 04/24/12 03:07 PM,
    On rare days off from running sound, I get the opportunity to go to several local clubs to check out the work of other mix engineers. This is really cool because I pick up tips that can help my own work, in addition to experiencing a wide range of gear. One thing in particular that I pay close attention to is effects, and I find that in most every case, some type of effect is applied on almost every instrument… View this story

    For speech, the job of the sound technician is simple - to see to it that every word is heard clearly, preferably at a comfortable listening volume. On the other hand, the music mix is very much left to the taste and discretion of the sound technician and the music minister, and in general, it should sound like a professional recording. That is to say, a musically pleasing blend of the instruments and voices, enhanced with the tasteful use of… View this story

    The band I regularly mix is based on the east coast of Florida, and we often find ourselves playing in clubs right on the beach. Unfortunately, in most of them, the stage is an afterthought or built for duos and trios, and most certainly not for a five-piece rock band with all of the gear, wedges and so on. While the stages are small, the clubs themselves usually are not, requiring a full-range house PA - with everything running through… View this story
