    Equalizers, by their nature and name, are supposed to redress imbalances in a sound system. Unfortunately, equalizers, whether graphic, parametric, or shelving in nature, are only as good as the person using them. Knowing where to turn the knob or push the fader is usually a dark science, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The first step in proper EQ technique is to realize the knobs go to the left better than they go to… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   With the plethora of new (and affordable) digital mixers on the market, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with features, options and pricing. So how do you determine the right board for your situation? I use the same criteria as purchasing an analog console with just a few additional twists.

He learns quickly (after a couple of falls), that he must master these basics before he can advance to running, skipping, or dancing. His thoughts… View this post

    During a session, I remember when an artist was on mic, out in the studio ready to start vocal overdubs, and the producer asked: “How do we look in here from out there?” Interesting, because he knew the appearance of the control room to the artist might affect the vocal performance. The control room (from the studio) does look like an aquarium with the huge window and the silent action of the animals encased within it. Reactions to performances reflected… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   There are a lot of things to focus on during a tracking session, especially when you’re recording a dozen or more inputs at once. You want to make sure you’re getting a good sound from each microphone. That’s step one. Let’s be honest, you’ll spend the rest of your recording life perfecting step one… For now, I want to focus on step two – getting good levels, both when you’re tracking… View this post
