    Special Event Services (SES) of Winston-Salem, NC recently purchased a new Yamaha PM10 Digital Audio Console and immediately put it out on tour with monitor engineer David Baker for Lynyrd Skynyrd. “After having owned many of the original PM1Ds, we were eagerly awaiting its successor, states vice president/co-owner/head of audio, Jason Farah. The Yamaha PM1D was such a reliable platform, there was no question we’d add the PM10 to our inventory.” Farah said SES still owns and uses Yamaha digital… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   In the eyes of some people, I “cheat” when mixing.  This cheating usually takes place when I’m working with a band and/or singers that I don’t know that well. One of the common things that we face in church production today is “the worship team” - usually four to five singers that vocally lead the service or presentation. Too many times to count, I’ve found myself mixing and not knowing a single… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   You don’t have to be the president of CBS Records to notice that the recording industry has changed a great deal in the last decade or two. For most artists, gone are the days of large multi-million dollar budgets for album projects. Nowadays, the recording process has got to be streamlined and efficient in order to be effective.  But even in the old days, there were certain things that bands would do to maximize their… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   My first day as a real engineer rather than an assistant was all about bass. The engineer (who was the studio manager as well) took a break after we recorded basic tracks on a Salsa song. Before leaving the room he told me to punch where the bassist wanted. I started, and was easily able to hear and punch individual notes rather than whole phrases. A few times I disagreed about which note… View this post
