    When mixer Shane D. Wilson moved from a commercial studio facility where he was a client into a studio he built for his own use (now known as “St. Izzy’s of the East”), he selected Auralex Acoustics to resolve many of the usual challenges that come with fitting music recording into spaces that weren’t intentionally designed for that application. Wilson, who has recorded and mixed hit records for such artists as Ben Rector, Switchfoot, Third Day, Josh Wilson and Crowder,… View this post

    Somewhere in its early years, the coin operated record player acquired the name “jukebox.” There are several theories about the origin. The most accepted is that the word “juke” is a corruption of the word “jook,” an African American slang term for dancing. The source of the music for this dancing would have been called a “jookbox.” A second version is that “jook” meant “sex” which may have made sense since brothels were some of the first establishments to install… View this post

    Chris Young and Cassadee Pope’s hit duet “Think of You” was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Credit must also be given to mix engineer Billy Decker, whose efforts have earned him eleven number one songs and sales of over 25 million RIAA-certified albums. Like every song Decker mixes, Metric Halo plugins featured prominently in “Think of You.” One entirely new trick that Decker employed on “Think of You” was to put Metric Halo… View this post

    Change is the only constant. (“Well, it used to be.” “Oh, what happened?” “It changed.”) Several years ago, I got a call to mix front of house for Uriah Heep on a mini-tour of the U.S. I hadn’t mixed a headliner rock band in a long time. Years back, fate took me down the path of product design and manufacturing, and later, I became a specialist in sound system alignment (a.k.a. “room tuning”) for major events and installations. So I’ve… View this post
