    Chris Young and Cassadee Pope’s hit duet “Think of You” was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Credit must also be given to mix engineer Billy Decker, whose efforts have earned him eleven number one songs and sales of over 25 million RIAA-certified albums. Like every song Decker mixes, Metric Halo plugins featured prominently in “Think of You.” One entirely new trick that Decker employed on “Think of You” was to put Metric Halo… View this story

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time I was doing the typical thing of going with what I was told worked or what I watched the engineers I had assisted do.  Specifically, I was recording piano with a pair of matching microphones in an XY pattern around the hammers. I knew about many approaches (another mic at the far end of the piano and then pan that mic over to the bass side of the stereo… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   I think everyone can agree that digital audio is here to stay.  Even those who frowned upon digital in its earlier days have now mostly accepted its reality and have come to welcome its benefits.  Digital has quickly become the driving force behind most of the latest advancements in the field of audio engineering today. It has changed the workflows, the budgets and the music itself.  As a younger engineer I am very much a… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Ever wonder why there are so many different compressors and why they all sound different? That’s because back in the analog days there were a number of different ways to achieve compression depending upon the type of electronic building block that you used. Here’s a brief excerpt from The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook that covers the four families of compressors that we generally use today. In the days of analog hardware compressors, there… View this story
