    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   One of the things that musicians, engineers and producers sometimes have trouble with is how much to charge for their time. Here’s an excerpt from The Music Producer’s Handbook that covers the pros and cons of all the alternatives. It’s aimed at producers, but just as applicable to engineers, musicians, and any professional trying to decide how much to charge. What if a local band asks you to produce them? What do… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Click tracks are like Kryptonite to musicians. There isn’t a lot of enjoyment one gets from recording with them. Click tracks sound like nails being hammered into a coffin. A coffin you’ll find the remnants of your soul whimpering in. OK, maybe that’s a little harsh, but clicks aren’t fun and can suck the life out of a groove sometimes. However, click tracks are often vital to a recording session.… View this story

    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature offers an interesting discussion with a true “dynamic duo” of the recording world.

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   By now you’ve all heard that the legendary producer Phil Ramone has passed. If you read any of the obituaries, you’ll notice that they all quote his many Grammys and the superstars he worked with, which indeed placed him above the majority of his contemporaries. Phil was more than that though. He was a behind-the-scenes mover and shaker on the technical side as well, always eager to embrace new technology. Phil started… View this story
