    As a founding member and producer of the Orlando-based Hip Hop group Solillaquists of Sound, DiViNCi first gained notoriety by using drum machines and sequencers in ways the world had never seen before. The virtuosity in his frenetic performances and popular YouTube clips set inspiring precedents for the now popular “Controllerism” scene. His work caught the attention of numerous music industry luminaries, including Grammy Award-winning artist Ms. Lauryn Hill, who tapped DiViNCi to join her band and studio team.

    Producer and mix engineer David Oversby-Powell has invested in a Prism Sound Titan multichannel audio interface, which he has been using to record parts of Ellie Goulding’s backing track for her current live tour. “My studio in Hackney is based around a Pro Tools HD Native set up and while I do a lot of work ‘in the box’, I like to go ‘out of the box’ into my analog compressors and tape delays,” Oversby-Powell explains. “With this approach it… View this post

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   What’s your priority when mixing? Is it to prove your mixing abilities or to legitimately serve the people in the room? I’m writing this in the middle of a busy weekend, because I’m giving my audio mix a bit more love at the moment strictly based around a complaint email I received this past week. While this wasn’t a typical email with someone wanting to vent their frustrations about volume,… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Whenever an engineer has trouble dialing in the EQ on a track, chances are its because of one or more of the 6 trouble frequency areas. These are areas where too much or too little can cause your track to either stick out like a sore thumb, or disappear into the mix completely. Let’s take a look. 200Hz (Mud) - Too much can cause the track or the mix to sound muddy… View this post

    In 1980 I was working for a band, doing sound…and lights…and some backline…from front of house. During the 11 months I was with them, the band completed a successful showcase, landed a record deal, released its first album, and did a national tour of bars and universities. Truck and van deal…did I mention that I also drove the truck? On this particular night, pre record deal, we were part of the way through a week-long gig at a Toronto bar… View this post

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Some terms: The Fast Fourier Transform is an algorithm optimization of the DFT—Discrete Fourier Transform. The “discrete” part just means that it’s an adaptation of the Fourier Transform, a continuous process for the analog world, to make it suitable for the sampled digital world. Most of the discussion here addresses the Fourier Transform and its adaptation to the DFT. When it’s time for you to implement the transform in a program, you’ll… View this post

    Having worked on the vast majority of Judas Priest’s signature albums, along with most of their earlier live albums – producer Tom Allom was called back to the chair for Battle Cry Live. Allom brought in mixer, Jack Ruston, the team relying on the Metric Halo LIO-8 interface, and MIO Console software to flip between a wide variety of monitoring systems. Of course, Judas Priest is among the small cadre of bands that might constitute the “founding fathers of metal”… View this post
