    From the July 1990 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, technical editor Mike Joseph interviews a studio owner competing against the big boys and flying under the radar. In an effort to promote balanced journalism, RE/P has endeavored to present both sides of the ongoing issues surrounding commercially directed, so-called home project studios. More of a strong concern in the U.S. major coastal markets, the ethical and legal aspects of low-overhead, for-profit, residentially based audio production facilities… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The overdubbing stage can be something as simple as fixing or replacing some of the basic tracks (like the bass, rhythm guitar, solos, and lead vocal) or as complex as adding sophisticated layering of horns and strings, multiple guitars, keyboards, and background vocals. It’s also the phase of the project during which the most experimenting is done, since even the most meticulously designed parts sometimes don’t work and require some alteration. The… View this post

    Audified announces availability of MixChecker as of May 16… Mixing music or other content for consumer consumption is an art in itself, one that takes time to master. MixChecker saves time when inserting it as the last plugin in the master output track of any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) project to transform studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices at the press of a (virtual) button. Audified marketing director Jakub Turecek explains, “Ex-broadcast pros from… View this post

    Matthew Kilford describes his home studio as “simple and small”, but it is here that he creates the audio to help build a whole fantasy world, including writing the score, sourcing sound effects and recording voiceovers, for the latest game from Evil Twin Artwork, Man o’War: Corsair. He has recently added an Audient iD22 to his set up, ahead of a planned move to a more purpose built studio, and is already noticing the difference in his workflow. “I’m surprised… View this post

This was accomplished by over-deadening walls, floors and ceilings so no sound waves (leakage) would reflect and add (or subtract) from the instrument’s original sound waves. Bass traps were purpose-built for controlling sound from electric bass amps, small isolated (and dead sounding) drum booths were mandatory and heavy gobos or baffles were used around all musicians separating them and… View this post
