    Editor’s Note: So many of us in the pro audio world are distressed at the news that Bruce Jackson was killed this past weekend, when the plane he was piloting crashed in Southern California. To say that Bruce was a major force in professional audio is insufficient, as is noting that he was a consummate gentleman, always gracious, generous with his time, engaging but truly humble. Yet these are the words that come to mind, at least to my mind,… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   A long time ago, in a sound booth far far away, I once asked myself the simple question; where is the chart that tells me the perfect EQ settings for each instrument and vocal?

    Some would say we’re taken for granted. Others might say we’re misunderstood. Still others occasionally say “thank you.” Who are we? Your humble servants, equipment service technicians – or “service techs” for short. Is it true that we stick pins in power amp dolls while dancing naked under the full moon with bones through our noses in order to get your gear repaired to working order? Or how about the rumor that we collect large bags of cash for a… View this post

    A-Designs Audio has announced the availability of a new two-channel rack-mounted version known as the EM-EQ2. Intended for tracking, mixing and even mastering applications, the EM-EQ2 is a dual-mono equalizer housed in a rugged, all-metal 2U chassis. Sonically modeled after the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound, the EM-EQ2 utilizes the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs’ popular solid-state EM-PEQ and Pacifica mic pres, putting a slightly unique twist on the classic filter design. The EM-EQ2 faithfully preserves the EQ… View this post
