    An AES standards task group chaired by Kevin Gross is currently developing an interoperability standard for audio networking. The focus of the project, which is called “X192,” is addressing the need for interoperability between products of many different manufacturers. Once implemented, X192 will provide manufacturers with the means to remain with the network technology they are invested in, while also seamlessly interfacing with products that support other networks. There are currently a number of existing and work-in-progress protocols, each with… View this post

    This article is the first part in a series on decibels, excerpted from Bob Katz’s book Mastering Audio: The Art and The Science. So many of us take our meters for granted—after all, recording is simple: all you do is peak to 0 dB and never go over! But things only appear that simple until you discover that with the same material, one machine says that it peaks to -1 dB, another machine shows an OVER level, and yet your… View this post

    Artificial reverberation, or echo as it is often called, is one of the most useful effects available to the recording engineer. Recently there has been an explosion of reverb devices available in the marketplace, and to compete for your dollars, they all must claim to be the best if not the ultimate machine of all time. Actually, each has strong and weak points, so the purpose of this article will be to investigate the four basic types and see how… View this post

    This article is provided by the ProAudioFiles.   Besides vocal mixing – I would say the most common question I read about on the internet is how to manage the low end. The kick and bass, or whatever else might be occupying that area, is the weight and power of a track. In addition, it’s often the rhythmic backbone. People tend to have a lot of trouble with low end, and I think there are two specific reasons why: 1)… View this post
