    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Lusting after large diaphragm condenser (LDC) microphones has become a national pastime. Newbies devour the recording magazines and read about this artist and that artist recording to vintage U-47’s or Tele 251’s and believe that they need those same mics, (or too often a design copy from China) to get a “hit” record. However, the acoustic conditions that exist in the average home studio or even small pro studio do not lend themselves to the… View this post

    I first started reading Live Sound International during high school (literally, during school), and I distinctly remember feeling frustrated by the professionals’ jargon. To that point, the sum total of my experience was “guess/test/revise” with whatever gear my school had lying around. I understood some concepts, but not the terms for them. I knew how to ring out a monitor, but I had no idea that process was called “ringing out.” I just knew it was a thing you were… View this post

    I first met Bruce Robbins just over 25 years ago. The band I was in was playing at a local, popular rock club in New Rochelle, NY and Bruce was half of a well-known pair of soundmen in residence there.  Bruce (along with Pete Herrmann - now owner of Motion Laboratories in Cortlandt Manor, New York) was well known by local bands, for they had local and national touring experience and were known to be real experts at their craft. … View this post

    Editor’s note: If you missed the earlier discussion from Bruce, click here. Over the years, I have been very fussy about the volume levels that I use in the control room. I have always tried to observe the American OSHA sound-exposure standards. I like to test my mixes at a variety of volume levels, and on a variety of different speaker systems. This makes sure that the mix will sound good anywhere. If a mix sounds good at a low… View this post

    While producer Tom Biller has worked out of nearly all of the big studios around Los Angeles in his career as both a producer and engineer, lately many of the most exciting sounds he is creating are coming out of his home studio in Echo Park. To ensure depth and presence from his highly focused setup, Biller has recently turned to BAE Audio preamplifiers. “I’m only really running 8 channels of input in the home studio, so it forces me… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   You hear it all over the place. “Help! My mixes don’t translate!” In other words, “My mix sounds awesome in my studio, but then when I play it anywhere else – in my car, on my stereo, on my iPod – it sounds awful.” What’s the problem? It could be any number of things – your monitors, your room, your headphones…maybe even your recordings themselves. But let’s step away from talking… View this post

    Producer/engineer Ross Hogarth’s three decade-plus career has careened across the musical map, from the dulcet tones of Shawn Colvin and Keb’ Mo’ to the lead-footed velocity of Motley Crue and Van Halen. But if there’s a common thread across this eclectic discography, it’s one of authenticity. Hogarth’s recordings never fail to bring out the quintessential spirit of his subjects. From his early days as an engineer at studios like Rumbo Recorders and the Record Plant to his present day work… View this post
