    Atlanta musician Ian Schumacher recently created the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown, a weekly competition held at The Tin Roof Cantina with the finals featuring a Line 6 StageScape M20d digital mixer. The event has multiple sponsorships including Guitar Center Atlanta, as well as the support of Atlanta’s diverse music community. “Atlanta has a huge music scene, but it’s spread out in different neighborhoods and we all gig on the same nights, so no one ever gets to experience what’s happening… View this post

    If one could listen to only the direct sound of a loudspeaker, the world would be a very different place! Unfortunately, free field listening, where you have no reflections, room modes or ambient noise, is hard to achieve in everyday life, so we listen to loudspeakers in real rooms. The interaction of a loudspeaker system and a room can be very complex to understand, model or measure! One way to measure this interaction is to measure the impulse response of… View this post

    As part of a complete architectural and electronic renovation, Virginia Arts Recording recently replaced its large-format digital console with a 16-channel API 1608 analog console with P-Mix fader automation. The north-central Virginia-based studio has been serving local musicians, labels, and radio stations for over 30 years. The current owners, Chris Doermann and Sean Dart, are embracing that history and the industry’s pivot to analog with the new API console and a 24-track, 2-inch tape machine. Virginia Arts Recording also retains… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’m currently in the process of building a home studio and just at the point of wiring all of the raw cable to patch bays. However, I’m a bit stuck because I’m not sure what patch bays to get. Is one “style” of patch bay better/more durable than another? I guess the same question goes for the patch cables themselves. A: Wow, is this ever a loaded question. Because the industry can’t come to a… View this post

    For its 30th anniversary, the TED conference moved from its long-time Long Beach location to a custom-built, 1,200-seat theatre at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Canada.

    The ever Audient ASP4816 in the South Pacific has been installed at The Analogue Café, a self-professed “old fashioned recording studio.” Studio owner Eric Malamud was keen to ensure that The Analogue Café lives up to its name, and his research into analog gear led him straight to Audient. Discovering that console designer David Dearden is Audient’s co-founder piqued his interest. “I already own a vintage Midas XL200, so I’m a Dearden fan by default,” says Malamud. General manager and… View this post
