    With multiple awards and more than ninety-seven million albums sold, producer Michael Wagener is best known for metal recordings since the 1980s from Ozzy Osborne, Mötley Crüe, Metallica, and Dokken to Skid Row, W.A.S.P., Poison, Great White, Megadeth, and more. One of the key elements behind nearly all of Wagener’s heavy mixes is Manley Labs’ Massive Passive EQ. Wagener eschews adding EQ to individual instruments while recording, preferring to get the sounds he’s after during the tracking phase. “I generally… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary   If you’re a minister of music, a pastor of programming, a senior pastor, or even a volunteer then one of your responsibilities involves dealing with the technical aspects of worship. Technical, of course, meaning sound, theatrical lighting, video, props, production. These areas, when properly applied, can add great dimension to the worship experience. However these elements misapplied can destroy a worship experience. Nothing is more distracting than feedback, missed cues or “hokey”… View this post

    Provided by HOW To Church Sound Workshops.   Many musicians with electric instruments often play too loud for the small churches they’re in, resulting in a mix that drives the congregation out of the sanctuary, and possibly to another, quieter church. (We know; we’ve been there, done that, both as musicians and sound mixers.) That being said, let me assure you that I feel your pain. Most small churches have acoustics designed in the early days of pipe organ and… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Are custom molded in-ears that easy to make?  How do they sound?  I’d seen the how-to videos so I decided to give it a try. The results were surprising. I use a set of Logitech Ultimate Ears UE600 IEMs on the road, good for what I need without being so pricey I worry about I losing them. They sound pretty good and flat, with maybe a touch too much high-end. I… View this post

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Telling an audio engineer to listen is like telling a doctor to heal. Of course we’re going to listen! How else do we get a great-sounding recording? You’re good at listening to the music, but how well do you listen to the artist? I produced an album for a really talented singer-songwriter named Whitney Winkler in which she asked me to play acoustic guitar on the project. Once we had the guitar and… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   We are continuing in the Five Concepts Series. This little entry is going to be all about punch. What is punch? Well, punch is in essence, dynamics. It’s the ability for a sound to step out of the speaker and physically impact the listener. So I’ll often talk about something like speaker excursion, which is the actual movement of the cone outside of it’s bearing, and I’ll talk about punch,… View this post

    St. Mary’s Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East, located in Tarzana, California, recently christened their new sanctuary featuring EAW loudspeakers. The new building replaced a church destroyed during a fire more than three years ago. After the fire, a church committee began raising funds for the new building. Once that was accomplished, the design process began. It was then that they tapped Bob Ludwig, owner of Audio Techniques Pro, located in nearby North Hollywood, California, to design new… View this post

    When Daphne, Alabama’s City Hope Church—formerly known as Bay Community Church—hosted its first services in its new 1,400-seat worship center this past February, it was immediately apparent to those in attendance that a premium had been placed on quality sound. Key to this was the presence of L-Acoustics Kara(i) and ARCS WiFo loudspeaker systems specified and installed by Springville, Alabama-based AVL firm ESB Group, an L-Acoustics Certified Provider. The church’s tremendous growth prompted its leadership to approve the construction of… View this post
