    This article is provided by Sonicbids.com   Audio companies release a million new gadgets per week. For every piece of gear that one studio can’t live without, there’s another studio that’s never heard of it. But there are certain things no one should ever start a session without – some of them items you’re unlikely to think about until you need them. Here are seven critical pieces of the studio puzzle. 1. A Beautiful Pair Of Monitors A DAW for… View this post

    From his early work with the likes of Frank Zappa, Poco, and Etta James to more recent projects with The Madden Brothers, Morrissey, and Spoon, multiple Grammy-winner Joe Chiccarelli is known for delivering exceptional quality and fresh, creative music. It’s not surprising, then, that he uses Manley Reference Cardioid tube microphones not only for vocals, but for drum overheads and other instruments, as well. “I have a Manley Gold Reference tube mic and two Reference Cardioid tube mics,” Chiccarelli relates.… View this post

    Podcasts often originate in garages, but the best ones these days are definitely not satisfied with low-rent sound anymore. That’s why the BP40 Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone from Audio-Technica has become the choice for leading podcasters who want their programs to go out on the Internet with broadcast-quality audio. These include the GRAMMY-winner Dave Pensado, who along with manager/executive producer and co-host Herb Trawick, produces the popular Pensado’s Place YouTube series and the new The Vocal Booth internet radio show/podcast,… View this post

    What Is It? A high pass filter, or HPF, is exactly as it sounds.  It is a filter we can use on our soundboards that ONLY allows the higher frequencies pass. It is sometimes referred to as a Low Cut filter for a similar reason. It is also the most overlooked tool in the sound engineer’s arsenal. Where It’s Found. Some soundboards only have a High Pass Switch which is fixed at a certain frequency, often 80Hz or 100Hz.  This… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Most folks around Omega Studios consider me to be the “analog” guy, but after all I am a working engineer in the 21st century. That means I need to know my way around those little boxes full of silicon, spinning magnetic platters and binary code. I am speaking, of course, about the modern day computer. Despite my nostalgic preferences for antiquated recording technology, I am a certified operator of, and work daily in, Pro Tools.… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Have you heard the expression, “Stuff expands to fill the space available?” It used to be true in my life.

However, after 10 years there we had a lot of stuff. In fact, the once empty basement was full. It took… View this post
