    As with the ever-ongoing debates about “tubes versus transistors,” “analog versus digital” and “Mac versus PC,” there’s not likely to be agreement any time soon about “objective versus subjective” when it comes to sound quality. Extremists in the “Objectivist” camp argue that, “if it can’t be measured, it doesn’t exist” while on the other hand, the “Subjectivist” side firmly backs the idea that “human beings can hear things that can’t be measured.” How often has it been suggested, “use your… View this post

    Just when we thought we’d seen the largest console to leave the Audient factory, the Concert Hall in Norway’s capital went and ordered an even bigger one. Delivered in September, the 48 channel ASP8024-HE Heritage Edition comes with all the trimmings, including patchbay, Dual Layer Control (DLC) and producers’ desk. With nine bays, it’s officially the largest Heritage Edition ever made. Luckily, Oslo’s Concert Hall is a big place. “We were looking for an analog console that doesn’t lie,” says… View this post

    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. When purchasing an analog console, there are five primary aspects that I suggest looking at. (Well, six if you include price.) 1) Quality.… View this post

    From the November/December 1971 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature is an in depth look back at the career of a legendary engineer. When a child is learning to walk, he is able to do no more than put one foot in front of the other and shift his weight. 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
