    Recording a live event is pretty much the norm today, particularly with the emergence of digital technology making it a relatively simple endeavor. Basic show recordings (often in the form of a 2-track capture taken off the main mix bus that’s commonly called a “board tape”) are a handy learning tool, allowing engineers to evaluate their mixes and musicians to critique their performances. While recordings taken from the main outputs can be quite good from a quality standpoint, there are… View this post

    Hawthorn Town Hall, located in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, has taken on new life as a venue deemed integral to the artistic and cultural life of the community. Opened in 1890, the building housed the council chambers for the City of Hawthorn until 1994. Since then it has been used as a library, museum and gallery space.  The building, along with the connecting and adjacent office annex built in the 1980s, is currently being redeveloped into the Hawthorn Art… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I have what may seem like a silly question, but I’ve been racking my brain and I can’t seem to come up with the answer. Well, not really a question, really, but I keep getting confused by this: “The continuous load on a fuse in an enclosure should not exceed what percent of its rating?” You see, I’m doing some work, and I noticed that the above question does not indicate enclosure size, which in… View this post

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   There’s a lot of bad advice out there. If you come across someone telling you “the way” to record or mix something in the studio, just move on. I’ve never recorded or mixed anything the exact same way twice. And that’s part of the frustration you might be facing if you’re starting out in this crazy home recording world. You want to learn “tricks of the trade,” but everywhere you turn you get… View this post

    Almost 24 years ago bassist Benny Rietveld ended his tenure with Miles Davis and made the move to join team Carlos Santana. At the time of the move it was unlikely Rietveld knew how Santana would reignite his own career, garner mass appeal on popular radio and clean up at the Grammys with the “Supernatural” project. Rietveld took a chance, put in almost a decade of commitment to Santana (prior to “Supernatural”) and now enjoys a career so diverse it… View this post

The award show featured live performances by some of the biggest stars in Latin music including Marc Anthony, Carlos… View this post

    Franklin Denham, Minister of Music at Highland Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has been conducting Singing Christmas Tree performances since 1985. The history of singing trees goes back to the outdoor presentations in 1933 at Belhaven College, Jackson, MS, which is considered the first and oldest outdoor Singing Christmas Tree event in America. At the time, indoor performances were rare, as it required a rather large church to accommodate this type of performance. All of the tree performances at Highland… View this post
