    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   You hear it all over the place. “Help! My mixes don’t translate!” In other words, “My mix sounds awesome in my studio, but then when I play it anywhere else – in my car, on my stereo, on my iPod – it sounds awful.” What’s the problem? It could be any number of things – your monitors, your room, your headphones…maybe even your recordings themselves. But let’s step away from talking… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The overdubbing stage can be something as simple as fixing or replacing some of the basic tracks (like the bass, rhythm guitar, solos, and lead vocal) or as complex as adding sophisticated layering of horns and strings, multiple guitars, keyboards, and background vocals. It’s also the phase of the project during which the most experimenting is done, since even the most meticulously designed parts sometimes don’t work and require some alteration. The… View this story

    Excerpted from Mix Masters: Platinum Engineers Reveal Their Secrets for Success.   The most revered and respected pop music of all time is, indisputably, that made by the Beatles. Almost forty years after they were recorded, their words and melodies are still heard all over the world. Even today, producers and musicians speak of Beatles’ records with awe as they strive for some modicum of the artistic and commercial success achieved by those records. And while many much more recent… View this story

    Editor’s Note: This is an excerpt from Audio Production and Critical Listening: Technical Ear Training, available from Focal Press. In the recording process, engineers regularly encounter technical issues that cause noises to be introduced or audio signals to be degraded inadvertently. To the careful listener, such events remove the illusion of transparent audio technology, revealing a recorded musical performance and reminding them that they are listening to a recording mediated by once invisible but now clearly apparent technology. It becomes… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When I started recording more seriously, I was spending most of my time in professional studios. Fancy studios are awesome. You’ve got a pretty control room with a big console, patchbay, and couches. You’ve got a nice big tracking room, and you’ve probably got a couple of extra rooms or vocal booths thrown in there. All this is great, however, for those recording in personal studios, chances are the musicians you… View this story

    As guitarist Jeff Baxter once said to me during the “heat” of a Rod Stewart recording session: “We can do anything—the impossible just takes a little longer.” Along with talented musicians like Jeff, engineers, producers, and live mixers often are called upon to solve problems that are at first glance, flat impossible. To a technically challenged client, all the flashy and complicated gear, computers and the alacrity at which a pro uses them to produce nearly instant, seemingly magical results… View this story

    microphones
    Bruce Bartlett 05/28/15 10:50 AM,
    Suppose you’re going to mike a singer, a sax, or a guitar. Which mic should you choose? Where should you place it? Your mic technique has a powerful effect on the sound of your recordings. In this article we’ll look at some general principles of miking that apply to all instruments. Which Mic Should I Use? Is there a “right” mic to use on a piano, a kick drum, or a guitar amp? No. Every microphone sounds different, and you… View this story

    fletcher greatness
    Fletcher 05/18/15 10:22 AM,
    When I was coming up as an engineer one of my mentors said something that I carry to every session: “There are two parallel universes in recorded music - greatness and perfection. At times they can touch, but they never intersect. And if you have to pick one, pick greatness”. This was an absolutely life changing moment, and these are words I’ve tried to live by ever since. There are times when a wrong note is very much the right… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   With the impending release of his new album next week, Joe offers an insight on something he picked up while working with one of the songs. The lesson: sometimes allowing things to go against what you think you should do, in order to get the best performance and make the most of a song, is the right way to go. The song is “Forgiveness,” a simple, soft, intimate piano ballad-type track. Joe shares… View this story
