    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. Out on tour recording promotional material for Clarke’s latest yet-to-be-named album which was mixed live during several dates this past December, front of house engineer, Travis Rogers, used a Yamaha CL1 digital audio console to mix and… View this post

    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

    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

    Change is the only constant. (“Well, it used to be.” “Oh, what happened?” “It changed.”) Several years ago, I got a call to mix front of house for Uriah Heep on a mini-tour of the U.S. I hadn’t mixed a headliner rock band in a long time. Years back, fate took me down the path of product design and manufacturing, and later, I became a specialist in sound system alignment (a.k.a. “room tuning”) for major events and installations. So I’ve… View this post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time I was doing the typical thing of going with what I was told worked or what I watched the engineers I had assisted do.  Specifically, I was recording piano with a pair of matching microphones in an XY pattern around the hammers. I knew about many approaches (another mic at the far end of the piano and then pan that mic over to the bass side of the stereo… View this post
