    It’s no secret an engineer’s knowledge of his tools is a source of great power. Any time I’m preparing for a recording session or live sound gig, the first thing I set upon once I determine the makeup of the ensemble and the equipment at my disposal is to determine how best to utilize the available microphones. One of the best tools any engineer has in this task are manufacturer specifications. However, many microphone manufacturer websites are laden with Flash… View this post

Record producers are looking for the drummer to drive the “feel” of the song and their drum sound to “fill” a certain… View this post

    Let’s take a poll: how many of you use a road map to find the most efficient route to get where you’re going? Wow, a couple of folks actually raised a hand! It may seem odd, but one of the best ways to understand how to operate a mixing console is to learn its signal flow. Figure out a simple road map that illustrates how the signal gets from the input to various outputs. Without this understanding, then the likely… View this post
