    For the past 11 years, production sound mixer André Zacher has captured vibrant audio for more than 50 documentary and feature films worldwide. From the scorching heat of Africa and the sub-freezing temperatures of Scandinavia, to the remote mountains of the Himalayas, Zacher never leaves home without his trusted recording gear from Sound Devices. Zacher’s introduction to Sound Devices came in 2004, when he used one of the first 744T recorders in Germany, provided by Ambient Recording Munich, on the… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Perhaps the most difficult task of a mixing engineer is balancing the bass and drums (especially the bass and kick). Nothing can make or break a mix faster than how these instruments work together. It’s not uncommon for a mixer to spend hours on this balance (both level and frequency) because if the relationship isn’t correct, then the song will just never sound big and punchy. Here’s an excerpt from The Mixing… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Recently, I was working with an artist, Elizabeth Ziman. Elizabeth brought in a really interesting song that sonically reminded me of being in the half state of dreaming. I wanted to try to find a way to embellish the sound of the piano to psychologically put you in that state of mind while listening to the song. This song is basically a solo piano with a really lovely airy vocal… View this story

    This article is provided by   First of all, I would like to make it clear that I have only recently decided to forgive digital for how it sounds. Yes, I agree that digital is easier, more convenient, and more stable in terms of a storage medium, and you can do very cool things that would be difficult or even impossible using analog. Unfortunately, I’ve always felt that analog technology better captures midrange nuances that are crucial to any… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve been asked by a few people how I would go about getting a bass sound, since I’ve mentioned before that I’d approach things differently. Actually, the sound of the bass isn’t as important as the relationship it has with the kick and snare drums, since they all reinforce one another if blended correctly. Here’s my approach, assuming that both the bass and the drums are recorded well and sound pretty good… View this story

    Central Georgia is known for several things, including great food, classic southern culture, and a disproportionate number of churches. One church that’s stood as a beacon for many years is Christ Chapel, located on the north side of Macon. Currently serving as the audio director at the church, Jon Beachy and his family found everything they were searching for after relocating to Macon about 15 years ago. “We’d picked out a few churches to visit, and Christ Chapel was the… View this story

    This article is provided by Church   Skill: the ability to do something well; expertise. I recently asked the members of the Church Soundcheck (CSC) discussion board for their thoughts on the key technically oriented skills that a church sound tech must have (or strive for). It resulted in a lot of great input, which I’ve whittled down into this list. 1. Have a musical ear. When we say people have “good ears,” we mean that they know what… View this story
