    The team of rapper Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis is making some of the most forward-thinking hip-hop music on the planet Lewis, who also handles many of the engineering duties for the duo, recently committed to purchasing a Metric-Halo ULN-2 preamplifier/interface so that they could cut studio-quality tracks for their forthcoming album while on the road. “I’m in the middle of producing a full-length LP with rapper Macklemore,” said Lewis. “I needed a small unit that could deliver audio quality… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   We tend to think of EQ as “makeup” for our tracks. We use it to make things purdy. But EQ can be a pretty handy tool for faking out your listener. And sometimes those fake-outs can be kinda cool. Here are a few: 1. Fake Depth Sometimes tracks are recorded so cleanly that they sound too “up front” no matter how much you turn them down. It’d be nice if you… View this post

    At Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt last March, NEXO revealed its concept for a new modular-design high-end loudspeaker series called STM. Just prior to the show, I paid a visit to the French manufacturer at its Paris headquarters to get the full low-down the new system. The STM (Scale Through Modularity) project actually got underway more than two years ago when NEXO decided to replace the popular GEO T Series line array (launched in 2002) and build a “next generation” system.

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Perhaps the most difficult task of a mixing engineer is balancing the bass and drums (especially the bass and kick). Nothing can make or break a mix faster than the way these instruments work together. It’s not uncommon for a mixer to spend hours on this balance (both level and frequency) because if the relationship isn’t correct, then the song will just never sound big and punchy. So how do you get… View this post
