    Dear Old Soundman— Yes, SPA1! Were your parents named SPA.09? I’ve enjoyed reading your comments for some time now. See, even though you have named yourself after a decadent outdoor love tub, you’re okay! I wonder if you might give us your insight regarding musicians who use earplugs (sometimes very sophisticated earplugs,) but then require ridiculous monitor levels on stage. There was a lack of love in these people’s lives when they were children. I run into more problems with… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   If we’re going to do some compression on the drum kit, we really have to start with the most fundamental question in the world, which is why? Why are we going to do this? Because if you’ve followed any of my tutorials, if you’ve listened to anything I’ve said, one thing I repeatedly say is we don’t do stuff just for the sake of doing it. We figure out why… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Perhaps the greatest detriment to a session running smoothly is the inability for players to hear themselves comfortably in the headphones. This is one reason why veteran engineers spend so much time and attention on the cue mix and the phones themselves. In fact, a sure sign of an inexperienced engineer is treating the headphone mix as an afterthought instead of spending as much time as required to make them sound great.… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   Small – but full-featured – guitar amplifiers can fulfill the mission of cutting the decibel level on stage while still providing the “bells and whistles” to be musically creative and retain feel, presence and tone. That’s the focus in this third installment of the semi-silent stage series, where the mission is offering alternatives that allow musicians and engineers to work together to provide a better mix for the audience. (Previous chapters are here and… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Often, a young engineer will start to position microphones based on what they see done by others or read in a magazine. Sometimes they experiment and move the mics to see if the sound improves, but usually once someone ends up with a mic setup they like they stop trying to improve it. There are certain standard approaches that have been successful, but even these approaches should never be considered “etched in stone.”… View this post
