    On a recent weekend I attended an event that was held in a very challenging space for sound reinforcement, and thought I’d detail it because it’s a good way to discuss some basic audio principles. This particular event was held in a very, very nice pole barn. Really beautiful. It’s a large steel building, the walls covered by solid wood paneling, the floor a stained and sealed concrete, the ceiling made up of flat steel decking with no acoustical treatment.… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   An excerpt from The Recording Engineer’s Handbook.   Basic tracks (sometimes called just “basics” or “tracking”) refers to the recording of the rhythm section, and is the foundation for any other parts that are to be recorded afterward. What that means is that if there’s something faulty in the recording of the basics, it’s usually going to cost time and money to fix it later. That’s why it’s essential that the basic… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Condenser microphones need phantom power to operate their internal circuitry. The power is supplied to the mic through its 2-conductor shielded cable, and can be provided 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 the… View this post
