    As I waited patiently through dozens of random items donated for a local auction, the moment finally came… A box of microphones donated from a local music store. The previous hour or so had been nerve-wracking. I didn’t dare leave my seat for fear that the mostly unorganized charity fund-raiser crew would decide to pull it up when I wasn’t looking. “Here we have a mixed box of microphones and cables. Let’s start the bidding at five dollars,” the auctioneer… View this post

    When sound designer for The Hubble Cantata, Garth MacAleavey, began to plan his sound setup for this year’s live event, he knew that DPA Microphones needed to be part of the show. What he wasn’t expecting, was how essential DPA would become to the overall performance. “I was first introduced to a DPA representative through a mutual friend and Grammy winning sound engineer Marc Urselli,” says MacAleavey. “I told him about this wildly ambitious gig, and how I really wanted… View this post

    Greetings, Old Soundman, from the Great North Woods— And greetings to you from my secret location! I’m not all that old, only been riding the faders for a few years now. Ride ‘em, soundman! Yee-ha!! Hey, did you ever hear of the X Bar X Boys? The calluses are just about right on my fingers and in my ears. What a bizarre viewpoint. I don’t really like to think about calluses. But whatever floats your boat! I was one of… View this post

    The incorporation of CAD Audio’s Variable Pattern technology into the Astatic 901 gives the boundary mic a continuously variable polar pattern (cardioid, Figure-Eight and omnidirectional). The upgraded Astatic 901VP reduces the list of products an audio system designer needs to consider when boundary condenser microphones are specified. The installer can precisely tailor the polar pattern for the best performance depending upon the application or environment. The polar pattern of the 901VP can be changed locally by setting the onboard variable… View this post

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   When it comes to discussing the fine art of mixing music, I tend to approach the subject with some trepidation. After all, compared to many of the topics I’ve written about, this one is rife with subjectivity — one person’s idea of a great sounding mix may be another’s sonic nightmare. And what works for one genre of music will be decidedly wrong for another. But all those variables aside, there are at least a… View this post

    The Hazelrigg Brothers’ trio sound is primarily acoustic, and although their overall style has recognizable roots, it is a product of an unusual musical background. George mostly plays piano with the trio but he started out as a harpsichordist. Geoff plainly has studied the masters of upright bass but he, too, has an eclectic musical background. George studied recording in New York City, learning on classic large-format consoles and tape decks, and Geoff is a self-taught electrical engineer. They have… View this post
