    From the August 1985 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, David Scheirman takes a look at the touring setup for the international tour of the legendary band, Toto. Take one of the music world’s best-known, Grammy Award winning pop rock groups, a custom-tailored concert sound system, 136 stage inputs, computer controlled stage instrumentation, a new concept in monitoring, six (6!!) veteran live sound mixers, and several months’ worth of international touring . . . and the recipe… View this post

    Like many of the scores John Rodd records, mixes and masters, he relied on his ATC SCM150ASL Pro reference monitors for a recent project with EA Games. In 1977, he snuck out of the house, long before he would become a prominent music recording, mixing and mastering engineer in the film, gaming, and music industries, with credits including Breaking Bad, Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Lincoln Lawyer, World of Warcraft, Elysium, Batman: Bad Blood, Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed;… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   Andrew Scheps’ engineering and mixing credits read like a who’s who of popular music.

The latter was one of his many collaborations with production legend Rick Rubin. Scheps has also worked with Jay-Z, U2, Justin Timberlake, Green Day, Metallica, and many others.

    Dear Young Soundman, I finally got my first gig to tech a real system, using giant line arrays in a multi-level performance hall for a one-off performance of some ’70s band I’ve never heard of. I flew out and met the rest of the crew, and was told that the main person to make happy was the front-of-house operator. While this seems simple enough, he asked some basic questions like “How are you going to tune the room”, and so… View this post

    From the June 1983 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, Robert Carr delves into the career of one of the most accomplished and respected producers in the industry.

The studio thrived on sessions for many of the top R&B groups of the Fifties — The Drifters, Clyde McPhatter, and The Clovers. But by 1958, after stints at several smaller… View this post
