    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

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Editor’s note: This article originally ran in 2011, but the information is still just as useful and relevant today. A question I’m often asked is “Do You Mix With Headphones”, which I think is something worth discussing. To start, here are a few comments I’ve received in response to this very question: David S. I cater to the most popular form of listening. So far, I’ve found that mixing to headphones… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Engineers that don’t work with horn players much often don’t understand the difficulties or the technique for getting a great sound. Here’s an interview with Jerry Hey, who may be the most widely recorded horn player ever, from my Studio Musician’s Handbook that explains things from the player’s point of view. I understand that you have strong feelings about how people mike your horn. I guess I have strong feelings because over… View this story
