    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   Love it or hate it, data compression (not to be confused with audio signal compression, which is a different issue) schemes like MP3, FLAC, AAC, and other relatives have fundamentally changed music as we know it. The battle between fidelity and portability was long ago declared no contest, with convenience winning hands-down over sonic quality. But while the ability to compress what was once a wall full of vinyl into your pocket is a boon… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   As engineers we tend to form strong opinions. We base our decisions on what we hear and what we feel. And it’s important to trust these sensibilities with confidence. Oftentimes, certain subjects will come up in which we lack technical understanding. But we don’t always need technical understanding — we need results. Unfortunately (and fortunately) when we get those results, we equivocate that with having a correct technical understanding of… View this story

    Directed by Jonathan Glazer, the film Under the Skin is a science fiction thriller starring Scarlett Johansson. Part road movie, part science fiction, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes. While the visuals are certainly haunting, the audio really adds to the suspense— much to the credit of the Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone technology Lectrosonics. Nigel Albermaniche served as the film’s production sound mixer. With over 50 feature films to his credit, Albermaniche certainly knows the ins… 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
