    GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jake Sinclair recently produced new records for Sia, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy, while simultaneously crafting his side project, Alohaha. Sinclair’s list of credits includes such artists as Taylor Swift, P!nk, Train, and 5 Seconds of Summer. He runs his studio off a laptop in a room filled with instruments, a few preamps, and his prized Manley ELOP+ stereo electro-optical tube compressor/limiter and not much else. The ELOP+ is a completely re-engineered version of Manley’s coveted early 1990s-vintage… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Here’s the prevailing thought on my mind this weekend as I’m spending a great deal of time behind the mixing console: It’s relatively easy (simple, even!) to completely ruin your mix. This isn’t a new revelation for me or anything, just one of those simple thoughts flittering around the edge of my consciousness as I work this weekend to NOT ruin my own mix. So, fellow ruiners, allow me to… View this story

    A book I recently read and reviewed for the AES Journal got me thinking about the blend of art and science we face regularly in professional audio. The book, “Audio Production and Critical Listening; Technical Ear Training” by Jason Corey (Focal Press/CRC Press), is a very comprehensive work and covers every conceivable approach to ear training for mix engineers. As with music, I believe that ear training is important in the audio world. Corey covers everything from EQ to dynamics… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   I know it may be hard to believe, but I too used to believe this was true. I had simply never given it much thought. Maybe you’re in the same boat? The issue was, I made the mistake of confusing headroom with dynamic range. Put simply, when I looked at the master fader, if there was a lot of room between the loudest peak of my mix and 0 dBFS (clipping,… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Once upon a time, back in the big-dang vinyl-record-label era, I was one of two mixing engineers on a big-dang album project with a huge-dang artist. We had the luxury of working in a recording studio with a vinyl-disc-cutting mastering room down the hallway, so, naturally, we took advantage by having reference discs – “refs” – cut just for us. We then schlepped these one-off 33-1/3 RPM acetate LPs around to different homes and stereo… View this story

    A discussion that began in the REP Recording Forum here on ProSoundWeb that’s packed with relevant/useful points and references. Question by kifaru I’ve been brought a song to record that has a part in it that requires a chorus to sing part of it. The performer told me that what he had in mind for the part was a sound like the choral parts in Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. I’m really not sure how to achieve this sound and the… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most of us have heard about the New York parallel compression drum mix technique. (Not to be confused with our HOT Drum Setup Tip.) This is where you send a drum mix to a stereo bus and then apply compression to the bus and feed that signal back into the two mix. This method can be used in either very subtle or obvious ways by varying the amount and character of the compression and how… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Mix engineers are called on to do so much more than ever before. Tweaking the track timing used to be done way before the mixing stage, but mixers find themselves doing it more and more. Here are some tips for tweaking track timing in you DAW from the new Advanced chapter in the 3rd edition of The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook.———————————— No matter how great the players on the session are, there’s always… View this story
