    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Readers often send me their music to comment on, and while I’d love to get to everything, sometimes that’s just not possible.

Before you send me a link to something to listen to, make sure that your song doesn’t have any… View this story

    Producer, songwriter and studio owner Matty Amendola assembled a diverse collection of TELEFUNKEN microphones for the debut album from Katie Lee. “The AK-47 tube mic and the M80 dynamic were the only vocal mics on the record,” commented Amendola.  “I used the DD5 drum package on my kit, and I also used the AK-47 as a room mic for drums and piano, and on acoustic guitars.” Besides handling all of the production, co-writing, and core instrumentation, Amendola brought in Grammy… View this story

That time constraint often inspires the artist in collaboration with Ben Arthur – an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right – to create something fresh and unencumbered. Matthew Hendershot captures the entire process, using Metric Halo ULN-8 and ULN-2 interfaces, which is later edited to highlight the… View this story

    As a member of the band Fall Out Boy, Joe Trohman saw the release of their sixth album, “American Beauty/American Psycho”, debut at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200.
