    Musical director and lead guitarist, Billy Norris has incorporated Metric Halo‘s ChannelStrip into the production mix for Platinum-selling pop singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw. Norris got his start in the music industry playing the kind of blues guitar that musicians and fans in the Tampa Bay area took notice of. His move to New York City to study jazz bass at the Manhattan School of Music in 2006 reflects the tremendous breadth and depth of his musical interests and aptitude. There, he… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Some time ago I decided I wanted to find out how the location of a microphone near a banjo affects the tone quality you hear. To make these tests scientific as well as subjective, I measured the spectrum of the banjo in several different mic locations. The spectrum of a musical instrument is its output vs. frequency. It affects the tonal balance or timbre. It is the relative levels of the fundamental… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Editor’s note: This article originally ran in 2011, but the information is still just as useful and relevant today. A question I’m often asked is “Do You Mix With Headphones”, which I think is something worth discussing. To start, here are a few comments I’ve received in response to this very question: David S. I cater to the most popular form of listening. So far, I’ve found that mixing to headphones… View this story

    I started out wanting to write about the design task of coming up with hybrid microphone and pickup rigs for Punch Brothers (a progressive acoustic band that I work with) and building a completely self-contained stage and mix system. But that initial focus has changed, where I now feel the need to share some of what I’ve learned by plugging it in to many different sound systems, as well as offer some observations on stuff that works and stuff that… View this story

    As a sound engineer, you spend years honing the ability to subtly appraise a mix. You learn to zoom in on each individual element and then zoom out to the whole mix, rapidly making decisions about what is and isn’t working so that you can tweak various parameters to bring those individual elements into one glorious whole. After a while it becomes sub-conscious, you’re not even aware of it, it’s just part of what you do. The only problem being… View this story

    Editor’s Note - This is intended as satire, and not to be taken too seriously (unless your mixes really stink). The only downside to following his advice may be an intervention… and one heck of a headache the next morning! Step 1. Load up your recent session and pour yourself a tall frosty brew. Step 2. Set all faders to 0 dB and EQs to the flat position. Take a sip of your beer before bringing up the faders on… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Creating a doubling effect to mimic the sound of a “stacked” vocal or instrument part can be great way to add some thickness to your studio production. Short of the performer actually performing the part multiple times, which typically yields the best results, here are a few techniques you can try to get a similar feel. Short Delays: Delays can be used to give the impression of multiple takes. Try starting with a delay time… View this story

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   To dither means to add noise to our audio signal. Yes, we add noise on purpose, and it is a good thing. How can adding noise be a good thing??!!! We add noise to make a trade. We trade a little low-level hiss for a big reduction in distortion. It’s a good trade, and one that our ears like. The Problem The problem results from something Nyquist didn’t mention about a real-world… View this story
