    It’s become a regular gig, opening boxes of toys and forming opinions for these reviews. Sometimes I’m impressed, sometimes not. Normally, I don’t have a problem keeping my cool and writing something moderately monotone. This might be different.

These have been nicknamed “the lie detectors” because of how clean and accurate they are. No details escape them. So… View this story

    As guitarist Jeff Baxter once said to me during the “heat” of a Rod Stewart recording session: “We can do anything—the impossible just takes a little longer.” Along with talented musicians like Jeff, engineers, producers, and live mixers often are called upon to solve problems that are at first glance, flat impossible. To a technically challenged client, all the flashy and complicated gear, computers and the alacrity at which a pro uses them to produce nearly instant, seemingly magical results… View this story

    Personal monitoring systems and/or wireless in-ear monitoring systems, working with earpices (“earbuds”), offer a number of advantages over monitor loudspeakers. Typically, the performer has personal control of the level of the mix via the personal mixer or wireless beltpack receiver. And no matter where the artist moves on stage, the mix will remain consistent and cleaner. Mixes can be more highly controlled, either by a monitor engineer or by personal mixing stations where the performer can select exactly what they… View this story
