    With 17,000 students, the University of Örebro is one of the fastest growing universities in Sweden.  Its school of music, theatre and art provides the growing student body with an array of course subjects, including recording music technology. In its quest to prepare students for moving on to a modern recording studio, the university has commissioned an API 1608 console. Situated in the heart of Sweden, the university’s proximity to Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo offer students a wide range of… 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

    Sincopa Sound & Light, one of the largest PA companies in Isreal, has recently used the newly acquired Optocore digital returns racks to service major concerts by Justin Timberlake and the Rolling Stones. Both concerts were held in Tel Aviv’s giant Park HaYarkon for up to 50,000 fans. For the Timberlake concert they deployed Optocore’s sophisticated fiber distribution system comprising four XR6-FX interfaces at the FOH, stage and delay tower ends. One device was configured 8AE/8MI and the other three… 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

    Analog? Digital? Both? In professional audio, many choices exist, but there’s not enough time to make the wrong ones. We regularly hear claims floating about, often skewed by particular opinions and interests that tend to color underlying simple truths. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the noun “analog” as being something that is analogous (similar or related) to something else. For example, an analog can be a food product that represents another, such as inexpensive whitefish “krab” intended to replicate more expensive… View this post

    recording engineer producer
    Robert Carr 06/05/14 11:39 AM,
    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, enjoy this in-depth discussion with engineer/ producer Val Garay, conducted by Robert Carr. This article dates back to the October 1983 issue. As a natural extension to his career as a musician during the early Sixties, Val Garay’s love for music lead him to pursue the art and science of audio engineering. Starting in 1969, he apprenticed at the Sound Factory, Hollywood, under rock-recording legend Dave Hassinger (Rolling Stones,… View this post

    Located outside Dallas, Cool Pony Media is a record label and artist development company that works with various music genres, as well as score-to-picture work. Brothers and co-founders, Mark and Mike Stitts, recently did an upgrade in part of their studio with help from API, and as a result, the team now uses THE BOX console on a daily basis for writing, tracking, creating stems, and mixing. “We’re amazed,” says Mark Stitts. “We have quite a bit of other API… View this post
