    It’s a Monday afternoon and I get a phone call from a local production company to work a press event the following day at a local race track (local being an hour and half away). I accept the gig and the next day hop on my bike (the motor-driven type) and go to the track, and specifically, the large circus-type tent where the event is being staged. No equipment truck in sight, of course. A quick phone call to my… View this post

    Join Klaus in his RE/P Forum here on ProSoundWeb. For well over a decade, Klaus Heyne has been recognized as the foremost practitioner of condenser microphone modifications in America—perhaps in the world. His client list includes superstar vocalists (Bryan Adams, Neil Young, Whitney Houston), leading producers (Simon Clymie, Trevor Horn) and the elite of recording studios and scoring stages (Lucasfilm, Disney, Cello, Paramount).

Parreno, an Algerian artist and film maker, has created a space in which a series of filmed events are projected in different galleries. Sound, which plays a major part in the exhibition, can be heard inside the gallery, as though the outside environment of Kensington Gardens and the surrounding streets is leaking in. To create… View this post

A: If the listed spec is for self-noise then yes, lower numbers are better. In many cases… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   I recently started working on an EP I’m producing for an artist friend of mine who’s quite talented, and I’m very excited about the project.

Don’t forget about Pre-Production. You’re familiar with pre-production, right? Do you do pre-production on your projects? Do… View this post
