    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature offers an interesting discussion with a true “dynamic duo” of the recording world. Quincy Jones is interviewed first, followed by Bruce Swedien. This article dates back to October 1989. The text is presented unaltered, along with the original graphics. If the word “professionalism” can be epitomized by one of the most successful producers currently working in the recording industry, that man must surely be Quincy Jones. The… View this post

Expect this trend to continue, since the new technologies can provide advantages in dense RF (radio frequency) environments, as well as generally excellent audio quality. And in some… View this post

Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille. Codenamed the HF6, the new capsule offers a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same… View this post

    Audio-Technica has debuted its BP894 MicroSet Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Headworn Microphone. Inspired by A-T’s popular BP892 MicroSet, the BP894 features a rotating capsule housing with talk-side indicator for use on either ear and perfect polar pattern placement. The MicroSet BP894 takes headworn microphones to the next level, by allowing the cardioid capsule to be aimed directly at the sound source (i.e. the microphone faces the mouth, rather than facing forward like other options on the market). The uniform pickup pattern… View this post

Used for classes, performances, and, at times, a gallery space, the new facility features detailed lighting and an intricate microphone design to accommodate the day-to-day… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Today we’re going to continue our series on the electrical side of sound. Last time, we tackled ground loops; their cause and a few solutions. This time around, it’s phantom power. Phantom power is one of those often misunderstood aspects of sound. It’s really not that complicated once you get it, but up to that point it’s a bit of a mystery. Why Use It? The first question we need to ask is… View this post
