    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   As you may already know, I’m in the process of doing a few upgrades in my studio. Whenever I’m looking to buy a new piece of equipment or upgrade an existing piece of equipment, I try to ask one simple question: What will help me make better recordings? My goal isn’t to marginally improve the recordings. I’m looking for holes in my system. I’m looking for weak links. For example, I… View this post

    If you’re just starting the trek from dynamic to condenser microphones, beware of the four steps of disillusionment. Step 1. Wow, this new cheap condenser mic sounds great! Listen to all of the high frequencies! I’m going to use it on everything! Step 2. Hey, is it me, or is this new cheap condenser mic a little edgy on some things? Step 3. Hey this new cheap condenser mic is noisier than some of my dynamic mics, especially on really… View this post

    Kenny Rogers recently wrapped up his annual “Christmas & Hits” tour that runs from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, with Frank Farrell, Rogers’ technical director and monitor engineer, noting that the sold-out tour goes to every kind of venue from arenas and casinos to theaters and high school auditoriums. Designed to be “as frugal as possible in this economy,” the tour includes an 8-piece band and a full complement of A/V equipment with multi-video servers and five projector screens, all of… View this post

    Sun Life Stadium, home of the NFL Miami Dolphins and NCAA University of Miami Hurricanes, is located just a half-mile from the main “antenna farm” of transmitters for the city’s TV stations, creating potential for dropouts and interference that can plague wireless microphone systems serving referees. “The referee solution we had in place, although operational, lacked resiliency,” notes Bryan Lykins, the team’s newly hired director of broadcast operations. “This is why we engaged Shure Axient.

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   If you’re doing a session in Los Angeles and you want your drums to instantly sound great, then your first call is to the Drum Doctors to either rent a fantastic sounding kit, or have your kit tuned. Ross Garfield is the “Drum Doctor” and you’ve heard his drum sounds on platinum recordings from Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Metallica, Dwight Yokum,  Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitiz, Michael Jackson and… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Condenser microphones need phantom power to operate their internal circuitry. Phantom power is supplied to the mic through its 2-conductor shielded cable. The power can be supplied either from a stand-alone device or from a mixing console (at each mic connector). The microphone receives power from, and sends audio to, the mixer along the same cable conductors. It’s called “phantom” because the power does not need a separate cable; it’s “hiding” in… View this post
