    36 channels of Audient ASP8024 console are at the heart of Red Bull Studios in Amsterdam, a place where studio manager Jasper Cremers reckons, “Anything is possible.” This mantra extends across the worldwide Red Bull Studios Network, as Jasper explains: “The idea behind Red Bull Studios is creating a place for musicians and artists where they can create whatever they want.” One of the biggest draws, is the free use of the studios - a rare phenomenon. “The artists that… View this post

    With 12 Grammy Awards and more than 40 American and Latin Grammy nominations to his credit, Rafa Sardina leans heavily on processors from Manley Labs. The Los Angeles-based producer/engineer’s client list includes such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello & The Roots, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Placido Domingo, Celine Dion, Alejandro Sanz, Harry Connick, Jr., Luis Mighuel, D’Angelo, and on and on- the list seems endless. When you add his earlier engineering credits at Ocean Way and Record One Studios,… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve been asked by a few people how I would go about getting a bass sound, since I’ve mentioned before that I’d approach things differently. Actually, the sound of the bass isn’t as important as the relationship it has with the kick and snare drums, since they all reinforce one another if blended correctly. Here’s my approach, assuming that both the bass and the drums are recorded well and sound pretty good… View this post

    Vintage King Audio recently hosted an immersive demonstration of the new AMS Neve BCM10/2 Mk2 console, which had its worldwide debut at AES 2015 in New York City. Robin Porter, the lead designer of the console, presented the demo. Originally created in 1969 and released in 1970, the Neve BCM10 has since become a studio mainstay, thanks to its compact form and classic sound. When making the decision to revive a console from Neve’s past catalog, AMS Neve lead designer… View this post

    A while back, I took some aspiring engineers to a trade show where some “antiques” were on display. Namely, CD/DVD players, along with a few analog multitrack players. Over the last 30 years, audio equipment has certainly followed the better-smaller-cheaper model of the computer industry. But like the computer market, repairs are no longer typically done at the part level. If the laser in a CD player goes bad, the chassis with the whole drive motor and optical track will… View this post

    Mills College is known for its collaborative and experimental approach to music education—and now API will be part of that unique legacy. Professor Les Stuck oversaw the installation of the school’s new 1608 console just in time for the fall semester to begin. Professor Stuck, technical director at the school’s CCM (Center for Contemporary Music), discusses the addition of the API 1608. “The 1608 purchase was a no-brainer, and the best possible option,” Stuck reports. “In choosing an analog mixer… View this post

    When Switzerland’s Raiffeisen Bank put on one of the country’s largest corporate events of the year, it relied on Riedel Communications equipment and infrastructure – including 5,000 meters of fiber cabling – to support signal transport and communications. The weeklong Raiffeisen DialogPlus event brought 10,000 employees and board members to the 100,000-square-meter Messe Basel exhibition space for a landmark corporate meeting, as well as the production of a “lip dub” of unprecedented scale. The DialogPlus deployment of Riedel Communications solutions… View this post

    It’s early days for the Hennepin Technical College (HTC) Audio Production students, but initial reports suggest that they are getting on a treat with the recently installed Audient ASP4816 console. “Students have already noted that the simplicity in design and operation is easier to wrap their heads around than virtual controllers and ‘layers’ that may be found on some of the digital equipment in other rooms,” says Matt Holmes of the Audio Production Faculty. This is thanks in no small… View this post

    This excerpt is the first in a series from Bruce Swedien’s book Make Mine Music by Hal Leonard Microphone Design Technology And Microphone Technique Along with this development of a more live sound and hi-fi in the popular recorded music of the early 1950’s, a great deal of experimentation and improvement in microphone placement and technique was going on at the same time. Much energy and effort were put into the development of innovative microphone design. American microphone design technology… View this post
