    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   In my previous article, Mixing Rap Vocals Part 1, we discussed the importance of having an end game for your vocal sound. In this article I’m going to give you techniques for actually getting there. I’ve read (too) many articles about mixing vocals. Cut 300 Hz, boost 2 kHz, compress 4:1, yada yada. Unfortunately these articles don’t actually give you any real resource – they simply speculate on generalities. What… View this post

    d.a.s. audio
    Paul Watson 04/09/12 03:10 PM,
    The D.A.S. Audio journey began more than 40 years ago, when a new enterprise named “Dynamic and Sound” was created by Juan Alberola in Valencia, Spain in 1971. Alberola, with a serious passion for audio, began designing and manufacturing his own loudspeakers and components, initially for studio monitoring and home listening, and all built in-house. Just a few years later, that focus also included producing larger loudspeakers for Spain’s thriving dance club, fueled by the country’s reputation as a European… View this post

    A new software and firmware update is now available for the KRK Systems ERGO audio recording interface and room correction system designed to measure and analyze phase and frequency problems within a listening environment. To correct room issues, the internal digital signal processor analyzes and corrects room problems, improving the response at the listening position which results in mixes which translate far better to other playback systems. This latest version includes support for Apple Mac OSX Lion 10.7.3 and Microsoft… View this post

    An understanding of the sound reinforcement system optimization process as described in my previous article (here) leads to what may be a startling conclusion: with relatively little effort, this technology could be leveraged immediately. A number of products are currently on the market that begin to leverage this technology. These range from stand-alone beam-steering column loudspeakers from companies such as Renkus-Heinz, Tannoy and EAW to higher-power arrayable products such as Martin Audio MLA, Duran Audio Target, and Renkuz-Heinz IC Squared.… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Selecting the right preamplifier for a given microphone, or conversely, selecting the right mic for a given preamp, involves two major factors along with several minor ones. First, the two big ones: Input headroom. Do you have enough? Noise. What will the preamp add to your mic? You need to determine whether the mic, under worst-case conditions, is going to overload the preamp input stage, and also whether the preamp is going… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   As I was telling one of the members of Mix With Us, I learn something new every time I mix a song… and I imagine that will always be the case. Mixing is such a wild task. It’s exciting, tedious, invigorating, and depressing… all at the same time. But there’s nothing like those final stages of a mix, when everything is finally coming together. One of the biggest hurdles you’ll run… View this post
