    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Brad I’ve been with a country artist for several years now and I have experienced this distortion on his vocal mic only on several occasions. (way to often) I have experienced this both on our touring consoles / systems (SC48) and on walk up consoles / systems. Everything from giant Milo rigs to small night club… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien. During our interview, Bruce talked more about the philosophy of mixing rather than the nuts and bolts. Here’s an excerpt from that interview, where he talks about hearing in “colors.” Is your approach to mixing each song generally the same? I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this post

    One of the most successful UK metal acts of the last decade, Bring Me The Horizon has built their reputation on incendiary live shows and regular re-invention. With a UK arena tour (including dates at London’s O2 and a hometown show at Sheffield Arena) booked for November, BMTH are set to play their biggest headline gigs to date – and will rely on Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system for monitoring throughout the tour. A long-standing A&H iLive user,… View this post

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   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

    Every summer nearly 40,000 bluegrass fans head to Ontario, California to enjoy the Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival. John Holder, owner of Blue Ridge Sound, was hired to mix sound for the 3-day festival, which celebrated its 40th year this June. Holder brought his Earthworks SR20 microphones along to capture it all. Holder has been using Earthworks microphones since 2009 after being introduced to the microphones through a friend who was miking a choir with a pair of Earthworks… View this post

    Producer and composer Talvin Singh has resolved his long-standing issues with analog to digital conversion by investing in a Prism Sound Atlas audio interface. “This unit has changed my life,” he says. “I’ve spent years trying to find an interface that didn’t color the sound of the instruments I’m recording and finally I have something that I’m happy with. It has succeeded in bringing my whole studio together and I feel like I can breathe again.” An accomplished Tabla player… View this post

    On a recent quest to explore Belize and Mexico, I came across the last thing I expected to find… A professional guitar player. He was actually the manager of a small retreat where we spent a few nights. Between admiring crocodiles and enduring Hurricane Earl, I ended up discussing the “sound guy versus the guitar player” conflict with him. (A conflict which obviously also affects sound girls…) For an incredibly talented player who’s been at it almost as long as… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   This is going to be a little piece on understanding mastering. I’ve done a few other videos on mastering, but it’s all been pretty much process oriented. This is going to be more about the concept of what mastering actually is. So mastering most literally means, “Creating the master copy from which all other replications and duplications will be made.” So if you are printing something up onto a CD,… View this post
