    To me, the first, the most interesting, the most capable musical instrument of all is the human voice. It has the ability to communicate a wide variety and range of emotion. Delicate timbral shading is easily accomplished by a well-trained vocalist, as well as an amazingly wide dynamic range. The range of instantly recognizable vocal personality is astonishing. In other words, two voices can have the same range classification, so by category we could say that they are the same… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The way you act at a session many times counts for so much more than your performance. If you make anyone uncomfortable in the slightest way, you can bet that you probably won’t be asked back, so being aware of proper studio etiquette is extremely important. Studio etiquette applies to before, during and after a session as well. In part one, we’ll look at what’s expected before the red light is turned… View this post

    CruzTOOLS has announced the introduction of the GrooveTech Jack and Pot Wrench for guitar, bass, effects, amplifiers, professional audio equipment, and other music gear. Musicians are familiar with loosening jack nuts, sometimes with disastrous timing, yet jacks and pots aren’t easily handled by standard hand tools. Some instrument jacks sit in a recessed plate, preventing hand-tightening. With shafts approaching one inch, pots require a socket with enough depth to fully contact the nut. Nuts are very shallow and three principal… View this post

    It’s been said by IT professionals around the world that there are two kinds of people - those who have experienced a hard drive failure and those who will. Unfortunately, we surely all know at least one person who’s lost data in a catastrophic failure. Personally, I’m a believer in the 3-2-1 backup strategy which has been expanded upon greatly by Richard Anderson in his article aimed at digital photographers. Put simply, for every file you intend to preserve you… View this post

    church recording
    D. Scott Kramer 02/10/11 09:10 AM, 2 Comments
    If we were to conduct a poll regarding audio recording among churches, I think we would find that a large percentage of churches record their services. The reasons vary: some churches may simply want to archive their weekly sermons, while others may make available recorded copies of their services on CD, tape, or some other recordable medium. Some churches may even go beyond the simple duplication of their service and offer their programs on radio, television, and Internet-based broadcasts. Regardless… View this post

    Excerpted from Mix Masters: Platinum Engineers Reveal Their Secrets for Success.   The most revered and respected pop music of all time is, indisputably, that made by the Beatles. Almost forty years after they were recorded, their words and melodies are still heard all over the world. Even today, producers and musicians speak of Beatles’ records with awe as they strive for some modicum of the artistic and commercial success achieved by those records. And while many much more recent… View this post
