    On the nights of February 16 and 17, 1971, the first commercial quad recording sessions ever were held In San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. This monumental edifice to God’s glory and Episcopalian financial acumen is blessed with a fine pipe organ, a 90-foot ceiling, and a 7-second reverberation time. The latter, in particular, put some stringent limitations on both the recording technique and musical style involved. The session was for side 2 of Paul Beaver and Bernard Krause’s new Warner Bros.… View this post

    Of all the tools at the disposal of the sound engineers, our ears are probably the most important yet also the most overlooked. Much like any other tool it helps to fully understand how they work to get the most out of them and ensure a productive working life – because if they break, that’s it, we can’t just go out and buy a new pair. Ears are transducers, devices that receive signals in one form of energy and convert… View this post

    John DeFaria’s distinctive licks are part of the fabric of classic songs from Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine, Kenny Loggins, and Kitaro. His compositions also include music for TV and movies like American Dad, Lifetime, and Oprah Winfrey’s channel. As with most composers, DeFaria gets his ideas from everywhere, all the time. And of course, he keeps a handheld recorder nearby for when inspiration strikes. He recently upgraded to the new Tascam DR-100mkIII digital recorder, and its 24-bit 192kHz… View this post
