    On the nights of February 16 and 17, 1971, the first commercial quad recording sessions ever were held In San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. This monumental edifice to God’s glory and Episcopalian financial acumen is blessed with a fine pipe organ, a 90-foot ceiling, and a 7-second reverberation time. The latter, in particular, put some stringent limitations on both the recording technique and musical style involved. The session was for side 2 of Paul Beaver and Bernard Krause’s new Warner Bros.… View this post

    Many live mixes are not only too loud, but also sonically unbalanced. I got to thinking about this (again) when recently re-reading “How Loud Does It Need To Be?” by Peter Janis of Radial Engineering here on ProSoundWeb. Yes, I’m saying it right here: far too many live mixes are just plain bad. That is, too much bass, too many highs, and dynamics out of control. Add this to SPL in excess of 110 to 115 dB and it’s not… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

    Four-time Grammy Award winning bassist, Stanley Clarke, is equally gifted as a recording artist, performer, conductor, arranger, producer, and film score composer. A true pioneer in jazz and jazz-fusion, Clarke is particularly known for his ferocious bass dexterity during his over 40+-year career.

    Allen & Heath has revealed dLive C Class, a new compact range of surfaces and MixRacks which opens up its dLive platform to a wider spectrum of AV, installation and live event roles. dLive C Class is founded on XCVI, the same 96kHz FPGA core which drives Allen & Heath’s flagship dLive S Class mixers, and also shares its DEEP processing architecture, allowing compressors and processing emulations to be embedded directly within the inputs and mix channels. The new range… View this post

    Kent Morris 01/06/17 08:06 AM,
    Are effect tools or toys? The answer is, it depends. In the hands of a seasoned operator, time-based effects deepen the sonic landscape and present a clarified image of the proceedings. However, when wielded by a careless knob-jockey, effects tend to cheapen the sound and draw attention away from the message of the song. The difference between tool and toy falls to understanding the effect’s purpose and its role within the larger scope of the song. Fortunately, the learning curve… View this post
