    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   If you’ve NEVER used a compressor in your studio, you’re missing out. If you’ve used one, but you’re really timid about it — scared you’re gonna mess things up — you’re missing out, too. Just like EQ is an indispensable tool in every studio, so is compression. There’s no reason to fear it, and here are 10 reasons why: 1) The worst thing that could happen is you get a bad-sounding… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   If you ask nine mix engineers how they approach their vocal chain, you’re likely to get 10 answers. While I don’t want to add to the confusion, what follows is an idea for how to handle vocals in a worship (or any other, for that matter) setting. Keep in mind that it’s descriptive not prescriptive; that it’s a constantly evolving process; and it’s designed to be easy for non-professionals to learn and implement… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Since my recent post on timing delays to the pulse of the track, I received a number of requests about how to do the same with reverbs. Why would you want to time the verb to the track? Because it adds depth without sticking out and makes the mix seem more polished. Here’s what to do to time the decay: Trigger the reverb by adding it to the snare and adjusting the… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Performing the vocal EQ process time-and-time again, have you ever wondered if there was a better way? I’m a process freak.  However, I’ve found the best way for improving a process is starting a new one from scratch.  That’s how I arrived at the following process I use for mixing my vocals. Clean Your Room! EQ’ing a vocal is a lot like cleaning out a messy room. Take, for instance, the… View this post

    You may have heard it said that equalizers are nothing more than glorified tone controls. That’s pretty accurate and helps explain their usefulness and importance.

Equalizers come in all different sizes and shapes, varying greatly in design and complexity. Select from a simple single-channel unit with 10 controls on 1-octave… View this post
