    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

    Energy Transformation Systems has introduced the Rebalancer (PA819), a passive self-contained digital audio problem solver. If you have trouble with hum, buzz or a higher than normal noise floor, this could be due to twisted pairs which are unbalanced or even ‘”slightly” unbalanced. The Rebalancer (PA819) resolves many of these issues. A badly balanced input signal emerges from the other side as an improved, balanced signal, improved common mode rejection, lower noise and lower EMI/RFI. Many classic old devices (limiters,… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you’re looking for a prime example of what Toffler wrote about in Future Shock, look no further than analog tape. In little more than a decade, the two-inch multitrack tape machine has gone from studio staple to relic rarity. And while many audio veterans wax nostalgic for that warm analog sound, few will admit to missing the work that went with it. These days, owning an analog tape machine is somewhat akin to driving… View this post

    When producer Greg Fidelman hunkered down to begin work on Metallica’s latest record, he knew that the (30) channels of vintage preamps the band had already in the studio would not be enough to simultaneously facilitate the multi-mic drum sound and detailed guitar micing setups he was envisioning for the sessions. He turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers to nearly double his available inputs, matching the sound of Metallica’s existing vintage gear with the added reliability of BAE’s modern construction and… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in 1997, but the principles are still valid today and worthy of repeating. Like everything else in the world, the audio industry has been radically and irrevocably changed by the digital revolution. No one has been spared. Arguments will ensue forever about whether the true nature of the real world is analog or digital; whether the fundamental essence, or dharma, of life is continuous (analog) or… View this post
