    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   EQ-ing Without Listening First. Are you guilty of this? Come on, be honest. Have you ever opened up a mix and started slapping EQs on every channel and twisting away at the knobs? It’s okay, I’ve done it, too. Do you know why this is a bad idea? Last night I was working on a mix, and the ol’ temptation to throw a bunch of plugins by default came a-calling. I… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most folks around Omega Studios consider me to be the “analog” guy, but after all I am a working engineer in the 21st century. That means I need to know my way around those little boxes full of silicon, spinning magnetic platters and binary code. I am speaking, of course, about the modern day computer. Despite my nostalgic preferences for antiquated recording technology, I am a certified operator of, and work daily in, Pro Tools.… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve received a lot of questions lately about my opinion on some very inexpensive vintage mic clones. I love finding a great cheap mic as much as the next guy, but there are some things to watch out for before buying. I thought it might be helpful to repost the following from a few years ago. In many ways we’re in the golden age of audio gear. On the whole, inexpensive audio… View this story

    Barry S. Weir Jr., a re-recording mixer and sound designer with Hollywood-based post production company Levels Audio, works on a wide variety of projects in any given week, requiring him to frequently switch between nearfield monitor configurations and calibration modes. In late 2015, Weir installed Blue Sky‘s Audio Management Controller (AMC) to handle those monitor switching and calibration tasks. “I decided to go with the AMC because it is one of the only monitor controllers on the market in the… View this story

    Audio-Technica has a long association with Kent, Ohio-based WKSU-FM, an NPR affiliate serving 22 counties in Northeast Ohio. Recently, WKSU redesigned its newsroom, and Audio-Technica was selected to help outfit the studios and reporter workstations with microphones and professional headphones. The newsroom redesign was finalized during WKSU’s 65th anniversary year. Along with expanded space and an open floor plan layout, the reporters’ desk stations were configured with voice recording capability, allowing for quick audio capture and freeing studios for more… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Please don’t say soundproofing, if you mean room treatment – and vice versa. I’m happy more people are realizing the influence acoustics has on their listening (and viewing) experience. I know the room is the final component in all entertainment systems (and also the first component, if you’re a musician or recording engineer), and that message is reaching farther every day. So that’s good, right? As with all things, a little info can be dangerous.… View this story

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Some time ago I decided I wanted to find out how the location of a microphone near a banjo affects the tone quality you hear. To make these tests scientific as well as subjective, I measured the spectrum of the banjo in several different mic locations. The spectrum of a musical instrument is its output vs. frequency. It affects the tonal balance or timbre. It is the relative levels of the fundamental… View this story
