    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Sound waves vibrate up and down in repeating cycles while they bounce around. Besides having positive and negative phases (when the sound is going up or going down), the cycles have physical length needed for a complete cycle back to the starting point (“wavelength”). High-frequency sounds are made from rapidly moving sound waves that can complete a cycle in a short distance, while low frequency sounds are made from slowly moving sound waves… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Talking about common problems and solutions is one thing, but in this article I’m also exploring the over-arching reason why most of these occur and what you can do to avoid them. The 5 Common Audio Problems / Solutions 1. Partial plugging: I’ve even done this one back in my guitar days.  It’s what happens when the guitarist doesn’t plug their cable completely into their guitar.  When I don’t get a… View this story

    When producer Greg Fidelman hunkered down to begin work on Metallica’s latest record, he knew that the (30) channels of vintage preamps the band had already in the studio would not be enough to simultaneously facilitate the multi-mic drum sound and detailed guitar micing setups he was envisioning for the sessions. He turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers to nearly double his available inputs, matching the sound of Metallica’s existing vintage gear with the added reliability of BAE’s modern construction and… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   In this edition of Home Studio Corner, Joe Gilder discusses a technique utilizing a large ribbon microphone that creates highly desirable depth in a drum session. With a Fat Head mic from Cascade Microphones, and a setup that was practically an afterthought, he discovers a way to thicken up the overall sound even within a smaller isolation room. See the video below for the step-by-step process used to develop this particular… View this story

    Maor Appelbaum has sometimes been mistakenly typecast as a heavy rock specialist. It’s true that he has done work for such artists as Rob Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen, Sepultura, Dokken, and Fates Warning. But his credits cover virtually every musical genre, including global stars like Faith No More, Yes, Meat Loaf, Walter Trout, and William Shatner, along with an assortment of jazz and classical artists. With his track record and client list, Appelbaum could use any equipment he wants, and his… View this story

    How do we teach aspiring audio professionals to mix? How important is teaching? Can some people even be taught? I’ve seen debates in the ProSoundWeb LAB forums as to whether mixing sound can/can’t be taught. There are a couple of interesting books I’ve read that relate to this idea. The first one is “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel Levitin. Levitin addresses the age-old question of talent versus work effort, and essentially concludes that the real deciding factor… View this story

    Bobby Owsinski 08/16/16 06:23 AM,
    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien. During our interview, Bruce talked more about the philosophy of mixing rather than the nuts and bolts. Here’s an excerpt from that interview, where he talks about hearing in “colors.” Is your approach to mixing each song generally the same? I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   This is going to be a little piece on understanding mastering. I’ve done a few other videos on mastering, but it’s all been pretty much process oriented. This is going to be more about the concept of what mastering actually is. So mastering most literally means, “Creating the master copy from which all other replications and duplications will be made.” So if you are printing something up onto a CD,… View this story
