    The former president of Soundscape Recording Studio, Robert Sanderson, has revitalized his interest in music recording with a versatile mobile set-up based around JoeCo’s BLUEBOX BBWR24MP workstation interface recorder. The name of Soundscape Recording Studio is synonymous with the New York music scene of the 1980s and 1990s. Having served as president and chief engineer on more than 1,000 sessions during a 14-year period, Sanderson was obliged to explore new horizons when the studio market began to contract. Ultimately he… View this post

    The Miloco Studios group are strong Audient stalwarts and have their share of the British manufacturer’s gear, with a Zen in The Bunker, an ASP8024 at The Cold Stores and an ASP4816 in The Bridge up until the recent refit of the flagship Orinoco Complex writing studio, where a brand new ASP8024 Heritage Edition now resides. “The Audient is a great console for the writing room, offering clean sound with a retro touch and plenty of routing flexibility,” says Miloco… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The road case is essential to anyone on tour with gear that needs to be protected, so I thought this would be a good time to bring back something that I posted about few years ago. It’s an excerpt from The Touring Musician’s Handbook that provides a good look at the differences between popular road case styles. Here we go. For many musicians, buying road cases for their gear is sort of… View this post

      It’s all about inputs and outputs (I/O). How do I get an audio signal from one to the other? The ongoing evolution of professional audio has produced a number of viable digital interfaces to complement legacy analog I/O practices. The choices may seem confusing at first, but when you break them down the strengths and weakness of each become apparent. In this overview, I will start with analog since it is familiar to most readers and serves as a… View this post

    Like many sound engineers, I have a background in music, so I’ve been on both sides of sound checks and know how annoying a poorly-run check can be for musicians. These experiences have led to a paradigm shift in the way I approach sound checks: they’re for the artists, not the engineers. On the road, practice time is in short supply, so many artists prefer to use their stage time to rehearse new material, tweak the backline, and tighten up… View this post
