    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve had a nagging question that I’ve been debating with colleagues for months: print reverb or delay? Is there a clear cut answer? A: There are basically two schools of thought when it comes to the question of whether or not to record with effects or dry. Most engineers and mixers favor dry, since it’s easier to add effects than it is to take them away. The primary argument being that if a guitar is… View this post

    Dangerous Music has released the new “Dangerous Compressor,” a dual-mono/stereo compressor for tracking, mixing and mastering designed by mastering gear guru Chris Muth. The new compressor achieves musical yet transparent results. Producer and mixer Michael James (New Radicals, Hole, Robben Ford, L7, Edwin McCain, The Coronas) notes, “The new Dangerous Compressor is a ‘must have’ in my world. It’s a refreshing complement to the currently fashionable boxes that indiscriminately add color to your sound-whether you want it or not.” The… View this post

    Ohio’s oldest and largest public community college, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) recently invested in an Audient ASP8024 for its Recording Arts and Technology program. Describing the British-made console as “a welcome addition to the program’s current list of analog desks,” instructor and staff technician Kevin Baylon explains, “We have never had a true in-line console to demonstrate how signal flow can be routed and re-routed through its architecture. I hope that students will appreciate and understand the ASP8024’s abilities in… View this post

    How many sound systems are in use? Many millions, for sure, and they’re found in all types of venues and for all kinds of programs. So one would think we’d know exactly how to do it by now. But there seems to be plenty of examples to prove that we don’t. Why should this be? What is it we don’t yet understand? Do we even know enough to know what we don’t know? Perhaps we should start by trying to… View this post

    Woodworm Studios, a classic 30-year old rural residential facility, recently enjoyed a complete technical refurbishment with a Solid State Logic Duality SE console as the centrepiece for the studio complex. The original creative home to Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull and an early incarnation of Radiohead, among others, Woodworm Studios is under new management, which has upgraded the entire equipment collection and technical installation for the two-building facility. Duality was the key investment, bringing together the outboard gear, DAW and multiple… View this post

    While they’ve become one of the most popular and recognized multipin connectors in pro audio, the back-story of how MASS connectors came to have such impact shouldn’t be overlooked. Interestingly, MASS connectors weren’t even intended for audio applications; rather, they were originally developed for use in oil exploration. Oil company engineers connected seismographs with miles of cable in areas suspected of containing oil deposits. Explosive charges were then buried along the lines and detonated. The resulting echo “signatures” were captured… View this post

    Specializing in preparing students for careers in communications and the arts, Emerson College in Boston recently added a 32-channel API 1608 analog console with full automation to its studio facilities to provide high-end sonics and a transitional work-flow between its other studio facilities. The new API 1608 will be used to teach courses in advanced recording and introduction to sound design. “We are a school of communications, not music or music engineering,” states Bruno Caruso, audio technical supervisor with Emerson… View this post

    Looking to leave engineering on the road for a new career path in a well-equipped studio, The Rattle Room owner/engineer Jaron Luksa recently installed a Solid State Logic AWS 948 Hybrid Console/Controller as the centrepiece of the Los Angeles facility. The AWS 948 gives The Rattle Room’s up-and-coming clients the opportunity to work in a space that delivers the sound quality of a high-budget, major label project. It also allows the studio to bridge the workflow gap between computer-based and… View this post

    The Music Production and Engineering Department (MPED) at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music will add a fourth 32-channel analog API Legacy Plus console to its Studio A in early summer of 2014. At that time, a John Storyk-led renovation will overhaul the space to create a fourth facility with nearly identical equipment to three existing facilities for the instruction of foundational tracking and mixing courses. Because the MPED recognizes the importance of giving students abundant hands-on experience with definitive… View this post
