    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   It was a mix engineer’s nightmare. Vocal microphones for singers were spread out across console channels 2, 7, 10, and 13. To make matters worse, they were labeled across as C, A, D, and B – not even in alphabetical order. The rest of the channel assignments were no better. I wept. (Not really but I felt like it.) What better way to guarantee frustration and a slower mixing process? The… View this story

    In a continuation of my previous article (here), I’m taking a look at five more of the most common live mix mistakes I’ve encountered when attending gigs as an audience member and offering some potential solutions to these everyday issues. Excuse me while I kiss this guy. It still surprises me when I go to gigs where either the vocals can’t be heard or they’re so buried in the mix that it’s impossible to make out what they’re saying.

    In November of 1997, I ruined my wife’s life. Well, maybe not her life… But definitely the way she listens to music. After explaining the mixing process and how we listen to specific sounds and their relationship to other sounds, she began listening differently. She began to point out reverb tails. She noticed variations to drum tones and the amount of distortion on guitars. She even picked up on loops versus recorded instruments occasionally. During a road trip, we were… View this story

    Although still young and with more career ahead of him than behind him, prolific producer/engineer/songwriter and five-time Grammy-winner Devine Evans has seen and heard a lot. A long-time user of Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plugin, Evans entered the world of music as a musician and songwriter under the management of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, a member the 1990s hip-hop and R&B group TLC. He and his band were signed to Universal in the mid-1990s and were recording their debut (which, for… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   You hear it all over the place. “Help! My mixes don’t translate!” In other words, “My mix sounds awesome in my studio, but then when I play it anywhere else – in my car, on my stereo, on my iPod – it sounds awful.” What’s the problem? It could be any number of things – your monitors, your room, your headphones…maybe even your recordings themselves. But let’s step away from talking… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   I was at an event recently where the mix was, shall we say, less than spectacular. But it also wasn’t horrible. Let’s just say it was a little above bad and a little less than O.K. In reality it was mainly one thing that was really grating on my nerves: every time the lead singer would really get into his mic, some level distortion would occur.  I wanted to get up and… View this story

    A recent conversation with another engineer got me thinking about experiences that shaped my skills. While in the trenches, certain restrictions and limitations were aggravating and occasionally provoked fits of rage. However, in hindsight, those same events were actually beneficial to developing my skills. Budget Restrictions Many, many…. many years working with churches teaches you one incredibly important skill… Making do with what you have. Part of what established me as a moderately well-respected system installer was my understanding of… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   How many times have you heard this phrase: “If we had a digital sound board, we could save so much time on sound checks and it would sound the same every week.” Or this one: “We have a digital board, so why does my monitor mix change every week?” Or my personal favorite: “Are the sound guys not saving the settings each week, because it’s so different every weekend…” These questions and comments… View this story
