    Audio-Technica (booth C1745) is debuting its BP40 Large-Diaphragm Broadcast Microphone at the 2015 NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV. A dynamic vocal microphone for a variety of applications including radio, overdubs, post-production, podcasting and more. The mic’s hypercardioid polar pattern provides isolation of the desired sound source, and off-axis rejection when working in close production environments. Its capsule placement helps maintain a vocal presence even at a distance, while the multistage windscreen and switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter provide pop… View this story

    This article is provided by the Fisher Creative Group.   There are some pithy quotes from uber-genius Albert Einstein where I swear he was talking about the trials and tribulations of audio post-production. And whether you are building the DM&E to an indie feature or mixing your latest musical opus, ponder these thoughts. “Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” There is always a tendency to throw… View this story

    Grind Music and Sound, an audio post-production facility in Los Angeles that specializes in sound design and mixing for adventure sports and documentary films and television, recently implemented a Yamaha NUAGE production DAW system. Co-owners Michelle Garuik and Sangtar Heer had been researching consoles and DAW controllers for some time, not finding anything that really fit all of their needs until NUAGE. “The tactile surfaces give us so many solutions for our different ways of working,” Garuik says. “After mixing… View this story

    After earning a degree in classical guitar and finding that the world does not value classical guitarists as it should, Maurizio Argentieri retooled his education and fueled his passion for sound on the other side of the microphone. After a very educational three-year gig as the on-location sound mixer for a small documentary crew that filmed Greenpeace activities around the world he “dreamed of recording sound for movies.” Twenty years later, it’s clear that his dream became a reality. Argentieri… View this story

    This article is provided by the Fisher Creative Group.   Dialog is the primary sound element around which all other post audio revolves. Unfortunately, a common problem we often encounter is how to prevent music and other sound elements from stepping all over the dialog track so you can understand all the words. Here’s the secret: You must create a space for the voice track, a kind of hole in the soundtrack, reserved for speech with the music, sound effects,… View this story
