    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   In this edition of Home Studio Corner, Joe Gilder discusses a technique utilizing a large ribbon microphone that creates highly desirable depth in a drum session. With a Fat Head mic from Cascade Microphones, and a setup that was practically an afterthought, he discovers a way to thicken up the overall sound even within a smaller isolation room. See the video below for the step-by-step process used to develop this particular… View this post

    What does an audio compressor actually do? Most types of signal processors, such as reverbs, equalizers, and delays, are designed to make an obvious change in the sound. But a compressor’s action is much more subtle; when used properly, most listeners won’t be aware that signal processing is being used. Only if you hear the original dynamic range of a signal and compare it to the compressed version will the effect be noticeable. A compressor/limiter is essentially an automatic volume… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien. During our interview, Bruce talked more about the philosophy of mixing rather than the nuts and bolts. Here’s an excerpt from that interview, where he talks about hearing in “colors.” Is your approach to mixing each song generally the same? I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this post

    On a recent quest to explore Belize and Mexico, I came across the last thing I expected to find… A professional guitar player. He was actually the manager of a small retreat where we spent a few nights. Between admiring crocodiles and enduring Hurricane Earl, I ended up discussing the “sound guy versus the guitar player” conflict with him. (A conflict which obviously also affects sound girls…) For an incredibly talented player who’s been at it almost as long as… View this post
