    This article is provided by Audiofanzine. A pair of audio heads with a studio based outside Tokyo recently contacted me with their first recorded mic preamp comparison tests. I was impressed and happy to have made friends from studio trenches far far away. Let’s take a look at what they came up with. The guys at Studio J conducted their preamp test by recording two songs through the following preamps:—Chandler Limited TG2—Chandler Limited Germanium—Chameleon Labs 7602—Focusrite Red 6—Grace Design 201—Sound… View this post

    The reverberation time (RT) is one of the most fundamental room measurements. It gives a broad brush stroke description of the general acoustical behavior of a space, paving the way for the use of other metrics to determine clarity and direct-to-reverberant ratios. Wallace Clement Sabine was the first to formalize the RT into an acoustic metric. His method of measurement involved a program source, a stopwatch and a quiet room. Sabine determined that 60 dB of room decay was audible… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   One button that still looks pristine. No fingerprints. No worn finish. It doesn’t even have a name. Working in audio, it’s easy finding my way into a foreign sound booth. It could be it’s my station for an event or it might be that I’ve been invited in by the sound tech on duty.  Over the years, I’ve noticed one button that’s often not used. It’s the fixed-point high-pass filter button… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The graphic below represents the dilemma of the recording studio business. It’s the legendary Electric Lady Studio’s rate card from 1994 and it’s evidence why so many legendary studios have been turned into condos. If you take notice, a lock-out rate (meaning the studio is purchased for the entire day) ranges from $2,500 to $2,800 a day. Sixteen years later, major studio rates are the same, even less if you get a… View this post
