    Having emigrated from the Soviet Union to the United States at age 9, Regina Spektor took her classical piano training and then began to write original songs. On September 30th she released her fifth effort titled Remember Us To Life. With Spektor being very detail oriented, it was important to capture every nuance of her performances—and this is precisely why microphones from Burbank, CA- headquartered Mojave Audio and Royer Labs were utilized. Engineer and producer Samur Khouja engineered Spektor’s latest… View this post

American Mobile dates back to 1992, when Chicago Recording Company general manager Chris Shepard purchased his first remote Pro Tools system to capture music beyond the walls of… View this post

    This article is provided by Church   Who is soundcheck for, anyway? Sounds like a silly question, at least until you start talking with the worship teams and tech crews at a lot of churches. Then the realization begins that in fact there are some different perspectives floating around out there. From my perspective as an audio engineer, soundcheck is not the process of setting up the microphones or making sure that everything is working properly, and it’s not… View this post

    Ask front of house engineer Jim Ebdon about the configuration of the L-Acoustics line array sound system he’s been piloting for three-time Grammy Award winners Maroon 5 for nearly the last two years on a world tour and he’ll likely reply starting with the phrase, “Well, currently, at the moment…” That’s because in that time—during what’s been billed alternately as the Maroon V Tour or the M5OnTheRoad, which has so far passed through North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania and… View this post
