    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

    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

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Editor’s note: This is part 2 of a 3 part series. You can read Part 1 here. If you listen very long to anything I’ve mixed, you may discover that I like using effects. Over many years and through much trial and error, I’ve found that my mixes translate better to the listener with a fairly liberal amount of effects thrown in. (click here for a breakdown of some recent… View this story

    Anyone who has survived more than a few hours behind a console has already accumulated a few amusing tales of the pro audio life. It doesn’t take long before they start sounding like war stories, sitcoms or detective novels. From my experience, the primary talent that identifies a true industry pro is their ability to manage pressure and make things happen without excuses. The ones who can be dropped into any situation and run it like it was rehearsed. Becoming… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Imagine you walk into church one day and are told, “your job just got easier because we aren’t using praise bands any more…we’re going back to the pastor leading hymns.” Last night, while reading a church magazine, I noticed the variety of advertisements. Interested in improving your church? How about: • Softer chairs • Different colored pews • Software to monitor giving, attendance, birthdays, and the member’s favorite tv show •… View this story

    Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves Scheps Parallel Particles plugin, part of the Waves Signature Series.  Created in collaboration with GRAMMY-winning producer/mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Adele, Metallica, Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Rey), Scheps Parallel Particles captures Scheps’ experience in the form of four easy-to-use controls, each representing one of his go-to mixing processes. Sub is a harmonic generator that creates lows and adds sub frequencies that were never there before. By working more… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Editor’s Note: Although this article first appeared on the site in 2011, the foundational information for studio engineers is worth repeating. Technical preparation is the most mundane of all the tasks. So mundane, in fact, that many A-listers either hire someone or have their assistant do all of this work. That being said, the technical prep may be the most important time you spend on some projects, because it’s where you tighten… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Today we’ve got a pair of overhead mics we’re going to talk about. They have come to me high passed, low cut, no lows at all. Super compressed and we’re going to look at the before and then we’re going to look at the after soloed and then in context with the drum kit, and then we’re going to talk about why you might want either of those options in… View this story
