    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Today everyone is conditioned to go direct with the bass guitar that many times miking a bass amp is completely overlooked. That’s too bad because it can bring something to the track that you just can’t get any other way. Here’s an excerpt from my Audio Recording Basic Training book that provides an exercise for bass amp miking. —————————— Back in the 60s and 70s, the way engineers recorded the electric bass… View this story

    A 32-channel API 1608 console found its home in an interesting place in the far north when singer-songwriter Florent Vollant updated his studio. Established in 1997, Vollant’s Studio Makusham is located in Mani-Utenam, Quebec, Canada, a part of the Innu Reserve, where over 3,000 indigenous people reside. Florent Vollant’s music history runs deep. He has released three albums in his Innu-language and is well-known in the Inuit community. His Christmas album, Nipaiamianan, received a blessing from Pope John Paul II… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   This week one of my neighbors left his unwanted Ikea bed frame in the alley. Among the parts of the bed was a set of SULTAN LADE slatted base. In other words: 20 3/4-in pine boards for free. Keep an eye out for these because they can be used for a ton of simple DIY projects. With these, I decided to make some super simple diffusors to cover up the bare… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Audio engineering is a surprisingly competitive arena. Us meek and mild mixers often find ourselves in head-to-head competition — or even tougher — competing against some imaginary beacon of greatness. But this ain’t basketball. We don’t know who wins based on points. In fact, the only people who really keep score are other engineers — the kick in that song is a 9.2 out of 10, but the vocal reverb… View this story

    “Working at Muscle Shoals was by far the best period for me, from the middle sixties through the seventies. I think my understanding was broadened and deepened so much by watching records being made from scratch, rather than deductively from written arrangements. Oh, man, it changed my life! There was never such an interaction between me and the musicians, and there was never anything like it in New York or LA.” — Jerry Wexler, quoted in Richard Buskin’s Inside Tracks… View this story

    Radial Engineering has announced the PreMax channel strip, a combination preamp and 3-band equalizer module for the popular 500 series format. The PreMax begins with a low-noise op-amp input coupled with Radial’s unique Accustate gain control that simultaneously sets the input sensitivity and signal gain to deliver ultra-quiet performance at all levels. Visual monitoring is supported with LEDS for signal and overload. The preamp then feeds a traditional 3-band shelving EQ for tone shaping. A front panel switch enables the… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The vocals are almost always in the spotlight of a song, yet sometimes they receive far less attention during setup than other instruments like the drums. In this excerpt from Audio Recording Basic Training, you’ll not only get a few great tips, but an exercise that will lead you through the different ways of vocal miking that will show you their pros and cons. ————————————————— Just like with a great sounding instrument,… View this story

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   I often hear the question (especially from non-engineers), “why do I need mastering?” This question is puzzling on many layers, but let’s break it down philosophically: —Does your mix sound radio-ready after you’re done mixing? —Does your mix fit harmonically and dynamically with the other mixes (on an album)? —Have you thought about how your audience is going to respond to the mix (especially as compared to the other mixes… View this story
