    Crossgates is a Southern Baptist church located in Brandon, Mississippi. With an active congregation of around 4,000, it falls squarely into the ‘mega-church’ category and hosts at least four services per week in addition to making its facilities available to the local community. Like other worship facilities all across the country, Crossgates was forced to make technical accommodations to comply with the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) recent ruling on the 700 MHz bandwidth issue. Crossgates’ worship services—all of which occur… View this post

    Rusted Root frontman and founder Michael Glabicki has purchased 12 microphones from TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik for the band’s 6th studio album, “Stereo Rodeo.”  Six of the microphones are the new AR-51 large diaphragm tube condenser, which has been nominated for a TEC (Technical Excellence and Creativity) Award in the studio microphone category. “When recording acoustic guitars and percussion instruments, every string, every skin has its own resonance,” said Glabicki.  “Recording with open air mics sometimes loses that resonance and tonality of… View this post

    For recording electric guitars, I’ve been using a “trick” lately with the figure-of-eight Royer R121 ribbon microphone. I like this method because it increases the “coupling” of the low-end frequencies and air of the speakers to the mic, and I also find it great for loud clean sounds and cruncher rhythm parts, especially low-tuned guitar parts where you want as much “sturm und drang” as possible. I line up dual 4 x 12 Marshall cabinets directly facing each other as… View this post

    Following in his father’s footsteps, Dweezil Zappa is a proud user of the full line of AKG professional microphones.  Ensuring Frank Zappa’s AKG endorsement lives on, AKG presented Dweezil with the Austrian-engineered mics so he may continue providing his fans with quality sound on tour and in the studio, whether playing the elder Zappa’s hits or introducing his latest single to fans. Kicking off Dweezil’s two-month international summer tour, the AKG mics replaced the majority of Zappa’s full arsenal of… View this post

    This article is provided by the Fisher Creative Group.   Dialog is the primary sound element around which all other post audio revolves. Unfortunately, a common problem we often encounter is how to prevent music and other sound elements from stepping all over the dialog track so you can understand all the words. Here’s the secret. You must create a space for the voice track, a kind of hole in the soundtrack, reserved for speech with the music, sound effects,… View this post

    Amidst an economic backdrop which can hardly be considered positive, the 129th AES Convention stood out as a beacon of hope to members of the pro-audio industry around the world. Held November 4-7 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, the attitude among vendors and attendees alike was remarkably positive. And why wouldn’t attendees be excited? Aside from the obvious swath of new products displayed within the walls of Moscone, there were countless hours of unique educational offerings set forth by the… View this post

    The 2010 touring season has been a busy one for Slash, who hit the road for tours of Europe, Asia, and the U.S. in support of his eponymous solo album, which was released this past spring.

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Not long ago I spent some time recording some vocals for a project my brother-in-law was working on. We used a Neumann U87 and ran it through a nice Amek mic pre. All in all It sounded really great. It’s been a long time since I tracked vocals outside of my studio. I’m used to being the only one there, wearing both the engineer hat and the musician hat. If you’ve… View this post
