    Current four-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley is out on the Somewhere On A Beach Tour in support of his album Black. His current tour, named after the Platinum multi-week Number one summer anthem has been a success, not only due to the entertaining stage presence and musicality of Bentley, but also due to the talent backstage.

These multi-tracks can be downloaded from David Glenn‘s website, he’s a friend of mine, a fellow contributor to The Pro Audio Files, and an excellent teacher. I really recommend checking out his stuff. So this is going to be about considering the bass in… View this post

    As with the ever-ongoing debates about “tubes versus transistors,” “analog versus digital” and “Mac versus PC,” there’s not likely to be agreement any time soon about “objective versus subjective” when it comes to sound quality. Extremists in the “Objectivist” camp argue that, “if it can’t be measured, it doesn’t exist” while on the other hand, the “Subjectivist” side firmly backs the idea that “human beings can hear things that can’t be measured.” How often has it been suggested, “use your… View this post

    When Tom Sorce, senior project manager and audio designer at Production Resource Group (PRG), is looking for a microphone that can capture the intricacies of an instrument with clarity, he turns to DPA Microphones for support.  Sorce has been using DPA microphones for over a decade. “The first time I used DPA, I was looking for a solution to use on an acoustic guitar,” says Sorce. “Then, I started trying them on many different instruments; on bells, horns, woodwinds and… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   Most recording musicians, engineers and producers are well aware what a difference mastering can make to our mixes. And as we’ve discussed in previous columns (such as Audio Mastering Basics: Taking Your Music That Extra Step), mastering is an art form in itself, and is best placed in the hands of a specialist. But even expert mastering engineers can only accomplish so much, and it’s largely dependent on the raw materials they’re given to work… View this post
