    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

    Audio-Technica has long been the microphone of choice for Mike Johnston, the creator of the educational website www.mikeslessons.com. Recently Johnston acquired two Audio-Technica AT5045 cardioid condenser instrument microphones, which he has been using as the exclusive microphone to achieve his “dream drum sound” for the series.  “Currently, two AT5045’s are the only mics on my kit, and people are freaking out over the sound,” he remarks. “This mic is absolutely unbelievable. I never thought I would find a mic that… View this post

    Four-time Grammy Award winning bassist, Stanley Clarke, is equally gifted as a recording artist, performer, conductor, arranger, producer, and film score composer.

    Eight years after first opening its doors, JavaJam studio has taken delivery of an Audient ASP8024 Heritage Edition – the first of the new, enhanced, large format consoles from Audient to be installed in Benelux. Based in the small Burgundian town of Oudewater, owner Chris da Graça was already an Audient fan, having previously owned the more compact ASP4816 mixing desk.  “We were very happy with the ASP4816, but we needed the extra channels,” says da Graça, who was ably… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Last time, I shared with you the first five reasons you’re not happy with your mixes. Today, let’s finish out the countdown. 5. You Don’t Have A Good Understanding Of EQ And Compression. Early on in the history of Home Studio Corner, I decided to create two in-depth courses about EQ and compression. They seemed like obvious topics to me, but I didn’t expect them to be as popular as they… View this post
