    The new DuraTruss Goliath-Studio crank stands can be considered lightweight in terms of how easy it is to lift them, or how affordable it is to transport them. But when it comes to supporting loads, the new stands are true heavyweight performers. The secret is in their unique winch-free design. “A good crank stand should lift a heavy load, not be a heavy load to lift,”  said Ken Kahn, president of Global Truss America, the exclusive US distributor of the… View this story

    PreSonus has unveiled the RC 500, a top-of-the-line channel strip for professional recording engineers and recording musicians.

    studio vocals
    Barry Rudolph 08/22/13 07:47 AM,
    Someone once said: “A good music producer worries about the most important things” and a strong argument can be made that the most important things in pop music production are the vocals. The singer is charged with artistically conveying the song’s lyric over a music track production that (hopefully) propels the song’s meaning and emotion across to the listener in an accessible and entertaining way. Obviously the singer/artist/song are one of the main reasons engineers, producers, musicians and the studio… View this story
