    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski. recently posted an article on a full-blown 48 track DAW for the iPad that looks pretty awesome. The app comes from a new company called Auria, and isn’t available quite yet, but it’s features are very complete, as you can see from the following: —48 mono/stereo, 24-bit/44.1kHz tracks, with recording for up to 24 tracks (you’ll obviously need a USB audio interface that can do that.) —64-bit, double precision mix architecture… View this post

    It is difficult to describe how something sounds. The terms are vague and subjective, and often have different meanings to different people. Sound is meant for listening, and the listening process is the most power diagnostic tool for the audio technician. Measurement systems yield lots of data, but it can be difficult to interpret. It makes perfect sense to combine the hearing process with the measurement process, allowing the benefits of each to be exploited. The process of convolution allows… View this post

    Up to 10 musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive monitor mixes using an iPhone or iPod touch and Presonus’ free QMix app. QMix builds on PreSonus’ original Virtual StudioLive (VSL), which provides bidirectional computer control of PreSonus StudioLive-series mixers via FireWire. Next came StudioLive Remote for iPad, which provides wireless control of StudioLive mixers. “SL Remote is very useful for the front-of-house engineer but it’s overkill for onstage performers, and the cost of iPads can add up. That’s why we… View this post
