    Hal Leonard Books has published Mixing & Mastering with Cubase ($16.99) by Matthew Loel T. Hepworth. Cubase provides the user with many more tracks than bands from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s ever had at their disposal. Many iconic records were produced on 2-, 3-, and 4-track recorders, whereas the track count of Cubase 6 is limited only by the power of the host computer. After the tracks have been recorded, they must be mixed and mastered to sound polished… View this post

    One of life’s more interesting mysteries is how sound ends up as an electrical signal in the brain. Some quality research on the subject has been performed over the last several years, and it’s a bit less of a mystery than before. The central issue is what’s called the “moment of truth” reaction, the actual point in where mechanical turns into electrical energy, much the same how those magnets and coils do the same within our microphones, our own moment… View this post

    Once, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning Best New Musical, relies on DPA Microphones’ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphones to provide a transparent sound in a small, discreet capsule. Based on the 2007 Academy Award-winning film of the same name, Once takes place on a set designed to give audience members the illusion that they are watching a true event unfold, making them feel as though they are right on stage with the actors. The natural sounding DPA 4060s add to this impression. With… View this post

    “Subwoofers should be located on the floor if at all possible.” This is one of those classic bits of audio “conventional wisdom.” I hear it from system operators on nearly every project. But is it true? If we look at the physics of sound, we learn that, as with most things in the world of audio, “it depends”. So, let’s start by discussing why the floor might indeed be a good place to put subwoofers. Placing any loudspeaker against a… View this post

    From the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, this feature is an interesting look at the studio approach for a legendary artist. This article dates back to the September/October 1971 issue. The door of Studio B at A&M in Hollywood sports a sign which reads, “CLOSED SESSION - NO ADMITTANCE PLEASE.” Inside, Carole King, looking much more like a friend that the superstar she is these days, is recording her third album. At this writing her last… View this post

    The Olson M-191 is one of the more interesting-looking microphones I’ve run across, a hybrid metal and plastic unit that has a style all it’s own. Olson Electronics may not be a familiar name. Started by Sid Olson in Akron, OH in 1961, the company grew into a large retail chain that carried a wide variety of consumer electronics, including stereos, CB radios, TV antennas, parts, tubes, batteries, and car audio equipment. Olson Electronics was sold in the late 1960s… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   There’s something new on the horizon that anyone involved in audio should be interested in and it’s called Hyperaudio. Hyperaudio is a way to take audio to another level by integrating some common sense things that haven’t been possible until now, like search, subtitles, versions and translations, and all sorts of additional text info. In other words, it’s a way of adding into audio all the features that we’ve been using with… View this post
