    Producer and engineer Julian King has worked with a who’s who-list of country legends and rising stars including George Jones, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Sugarland. His engineering on Faith Hill’s crossover sensation Breathe earned King a Grammy, and in total, his work has sold over one hundred million units. Shortly after moving to exclusively in-the-box mixing, King found Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, and he has since used it on almost every single channel of each and every… View this post

    Directed by Nick Palmer, Mr. Christmas is a new independent documentary film about Concord, California’s Bruce Mertz, a man who both figuratively and literally brightens his community each December with the 50,000-plus lights decorating his house. Already sweeping up awards at film festivals in Aspen, Philadelphia, Palm Springs and Providence, the short 15-minute documentary features a score composed by Jim Briggs, who tracked all of the instrumentation through a collection of A-Designs Audio processors. Recorded earlier this year in Studio… View this post

    A couple of years ago marked the 40th anniversary of Altec Lansing’s passive third-octave “continuous” equalizer that began modern sound system equalization. It didn’t start as a graphic equalizer, but rather, was three rows of eight knobs on third octave centers. A companion third-octave real-time analyzer, three rows of eight VU meters, provided a means to measure a sound system. Subsequent Altec EQs replaced the knobs with a row of sliders, earning the name “graphic” because their positions provide a… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Objectively comparing pro audio signal processing products is often impossible. Missing on too many data sheets are the conditions used to obtain the published data. Audio specifications come with conditions. Tests are not performed in a vacuum with random parameters. They are conducted using rigorous procedures and the conditions must be stated along with the test results. To understand the conditions, you must first understand the tests. This article introduces the classic… View this post

    New American pro audio plug-in company Plugin Alliance has announced that it has contributed six multi-format (including AAX DSP/AAX Native) plug-ins to Avid’s recently-released AAX Pack, an 18-plug-in-strong bundle. The AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) plug-in format was launched last year alongside Pro Tools 10 to provide better workflows and sound parity when sharing sessions between DSP-accelerated and native-based Pro Tools systems. AAX Pack offers Pro Tools|HDX and Pro Tools|HD native owners running Pro Tools 10 software a collection of superior-sounding… View this post

    By using basic four track equipment, three very desirable and unusual variations of echo effects can be created. Duplication of these effects using other methods requires the use of additional tracks, more equipment and more time. The first effect, which is called (Signal Trace “A” in the diagram below) is a thing we call “angle echo.” This effect will produce a repeated signal, and is used to enhance any background, vocal or percussive effect. It is extremely useful for enriching… View this post

    The recently renovated 15th Judicial Circuit of Florida West County Courthouse in Belle Glade needed an AV solution to manage multiple microphones and a plethora of audio, video, and teleconferencing equipment. In addition, court proceedings are commonly recorded. Managing all those audio feeds required a sophisticated processing system with the ability to interact seamlessly with other equipment—challenges met by Lectrosonics ASPEN processors. Ft. Lauderdale, FL-based NDR Corporation, a design/build firm providing turnkey AV installations, was contracted to handle the West… View this post

    Radial Engineering has introduced the Submix 4x1 mixer, the latest in the company’s growing family of 500 Series modules. The ergonomically simple design begins with four front-mounted 1/4-inch input connectors with individual level controls. Unlike a traditional mixer that requires a separate input pad and level control, the Submix employs Radial’s unique dual-gang Accustate input circuit that allows adjustment of sensitivity with gain. This enables the Submix to be used with low level instruments and high output line level sources… View this post

    Located a few hours north of Madrid, in the mountainous Castile-Leon region of Northern Spain, Burgos, is known as the “Land of Castles.” While Burgos is renowned for it’s history, it also has a reputation as a leading destination for corporate conventions. For some time, the city has sought to construct a truly modern venue equipped with the facilities necessary to host a wide variety of national and international congresses, concerts and theatre to meet the needs of both the… View this post
