This control of sound is well beyond that which was available to composers and performers before the advances of recording technology. The potential of controlling sound in new ways has led to new artistic elements in music, and has led to a re-definition of the musician and of music. While… View this post

    Ashly Audio has introduced the new nX family of Class D amplifiers, which deliver up to 12,000 watts while drawing less than 1 watt in sleep mode. These latest amplifiers are back by a heritage stretching back to Ashly founder Billy Thompson’s invention of the “Loud Amp” in the early 1970s and the introduction of its MOS-FET amplifier technology in the early 1980s. nX amplifiers are offered in four- or two-channel versions with selectable high-Z (70/100-volt) or low-Z output on… View this post

Aside from being a tremendous distraction in the studio, an iPhone (or iPad) actually does have several… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Whenever I do clinics at universities I always get a number of questions about home studio construction, since most every musician wants and needs one. One of the most frequent questions is about ways to increase isolation so the neighbors won’t hear what you’re doing. Here’s an excerpt from The Studio Builder’s Handbook that explains the two principles involved in acoustic isolation. “When building almost any kind of space (especially a home… View this post
