    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

    Audio-Technica has long been the microphone of choice for Mike Johnston, the creator of the educational website www.mikeslessons.com. Recently Johnston acquired two Audio-Technica AT5045 cardioid condenser instrument microphones, which he has been using as the exclusive microphone to achieve his “dream drum sound” for the series.  “Currently, two AT5045’s are the only mics on my kit, and people are freaking out over the sound,” he remarks. “This mic is absolutely unbelievable. I never thought I would find a mic that… View this post

    My father used to say, “Son, opinions are like drum miking techniques. Everyone has one.” Or something like that… Truthfully, there’s an overwhelming amount of information already out there on this topic, so rather than rehash it here, let’s explore a less conventional approach. I’ll admit that it’s a unique method, as it’s a hybrid of studio techniques and some ideas “begged, borrowed and stolen” from engineers I admire. Picture a snare drum. Let’s mike the top and bottom heads.… View this post

In actual fact, wireless systems are meant to work and in fact do work every day in thousands of concerts, theatrical productions, festivals, churches, broadcasts and the like, all around the world. With that in mind, I’ve compiled this list of troubleshooting steps to take when encountering wireless problems in the field. Hopefully… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   After 18 Grammys for Best Engineering (more than any other engineer) and work on over 150 gold and platinum records, Al Schmitt needs no introduction to anyone even remotely familiar with the recording industry. Indeed, his credit list is way too long to print here (but Henry Mancini, Steely Dan, George Benson, Toto, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones, and Diana Krall are some of them), but suffice it to say that Al’s name… View this post
