    Sound Emporium Studios is a go-to destination for artists including Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, and Alison Krauss, not to mention major projects by T-Bone Burnett. The facility was built by “Cowboy” Jack Clement in 1969. To meet the growing needs of its diverse clients, Sound Emporium consulted Rob Dennis at API Audio reseller Rack-N-Roll, who directed the studio towards a 48-channel Legacy Plus console. “Our clients have long requested an API in that room,” said studio manager, Juanita Copeland. “The… View this post

    Recording engineer John Zona works with a lot of talent in the artistic-rich area of Huntington, NY through Zona Recording Studios.

As part of that transition, Zona has added THE BOX from API to help bring enthusiasm and quality to clients, working to insure they come back and refer others. “I’m very pleased… View this post

    At one time or another, all of us who have sat behind a mixing console at a show are asked “do you know what all those knobs do?” Of course the answer is “yes”—or at least it should be. What they don’t ask is “do you know anything about acoustics?” or “do you have a handle on power and grounding?” because these subjects are not nearly as interesting or obvious to the novice observer. Maybe the real question is along… View this post

    This article is provided by Jeremy Carter.   Equalization (EQ) can be used to do a lot of things. Some of these things are very basic, while others are kind of exotic. In this post, we will focus on the most typical uses for the different kinds of EQ in a pro audio/live sound environment. Also keep in mind that as we progress into the digital age, these EQs may not be separate pieces of hardware in an equipment rack.… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   In the interest of full disclosure, I am not an A/V geek. I have only spent my entire career in or on the periphery of the A/V industry. I mean, A/V geeks push the cart around the school. They wear bifocals with tape around the nose and they are very susceptible to bullies’ wedgies. However, over the years I have gotten to know a lot about A/V. This tiny industry is chock… View this post

    Like many musicians who have a knack and interest in the technical side of things, Seth Glassman branched out into songwriting and production decades ago. He maintains a well-equipped project studio in his New York City home that includes his go-to Daking Audio preamps and compressors, which were recently supplemented by a borrowed Daking FET III compressor to mix a forthcoming album by all-girl power trio New Myths. Glassman is an accomplished bass player and multi-instrumentalist whose thirty-plus year career… View this post
