    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   If I gave you a choice between mixing and setting up the stage, I know which you’d pick. However, it’s the work on the stage that gives you everything you need for mixing. Recently, a discussion came up surrounding the best process for training volunteer sound techs. Many people said they have techs start with stage set-up and eventually progress to mixing. The idea seemed to be “if you can handle… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

    Audio-Technica has long been the microphone of choice for Mike Johnston, the creator of the educational website www.mikeslessons.com. Recently Johnston acquired two Audio-Technica AT5045 cardioid condenser instrument microphones, which he has been using as the exclusive microphone to achieve his “dream drum sound” for the series.  “Currently, two AT5045’s are the only mics on my kit, and people are freaking out over the sound,” he remarks. “This mic is absolutely unbelievable. I never thought I would find a mic that… View this post

    Dear Old Soundman: I’m a 23-year-old law student at Yale, and I discovered this summer that I really hate the practice of law. I mean I really hate it. Here is what you should do. Tell you parents to send me your tuition money while you go “find yourself.” How’s that sound? So much that the $500/day I’m earning isn’t worth it to me. Or is it? Do you have any idea how few sound mixers make $500 a day?… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1, part 2, and part 3 of this series. The analyzer is at the core of a measurement system. The manufacturers of laboratory test equipment design their products to be adaptable to a wide variety of scientific applications. Their working assumption is that individual users will add the peripheral devices required for their application. The laboratory analyzer needed a lot of help to be ready for the down and dirty of… View this post

    Attention shoppers: the good news is that in this century, there is very little bad sound equipment. There are still plenty of bad engineers (not enough sleep and too much fun) and bad combinations of gear (70-volt clusters and powered mixers driving powered loudspeakers). But the stuff coming out of the factories - and even a lot of the proprietary (home brew) gear - is light years beyond the stuff we all got stuck with in the past. A not-so-famous… View this post
