The annual concert, organized by the Swedish Television Company SVT and Swedish radio broadcaster SR, was held in Stockholm’s Berwaldhallen concert hall, home of the… View this post

You can never check your mixes enough. Before… View this post

    It’s pretty obvious to anybody that listens to popular music that bass is featured prominently, but most styles of music also have important low-frequency content. The smooth glissando of a plucked upright bass in a jazz quartet, the dramatic staccato roll of a tympani in an orchestra, and the melodic rhythm of a piano player’s left hand are all examples of this. Accurately reproducing these and other low notes through a sound reinforcement system often requires at least one subwoofer.… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Many a new bass player starts with thumping out the notes in the chords of a song. They are mixed then as low-end filler.  As they progress in their skill as a bassist, are you still mixing them as an afterthought?  Sitting in the sanctuary, I watched the worship band practice. Most everyone sounded great.  And then there was the bassist. He was playing the triad notes of the chords in… View this post
