    Joe Gilder 12/15/11 08:01 AM,
    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   A couple months ago I got a gig recording a live concert. It wasn’t your typical show. One singer, one piano, in a big old church. In addition to recording the concert, I was also in charge of running live sound. Everything turned out really well, but there was a LOT to do and think about to ensure a smooth concert and a great-sounding recording. For one thing, the singer was… View this post

    Sommer Cable has introduced the HICON HI-J63MA05, a 90-degree angled jack plug connector. The new HICON HI-J63MA05 offers an anti-twist solid pin with a hard gold-plated contact tip, as well as a sturdy metal housing with scratch-proof coating. In addition, mechanical reinforcement under the jack pin prevents the pin from coming off with a “jerky” movement).

    Producer Jack Douglas notes that numerous Shure microphones were utilized in recording basic tracks for the 14th Aerosmith album, scheduled for release in April 2012. “I like to use different mics in different situations. But during almost four months of tracking, there were a lot of Shure microphones that never moved from their spots,” Douglas notes. “That includes classics like the SM57, but also some of the new mics like the KSM condensers and ribbons. We also used Shure headphones… View this post

    The 35,000-capacity Hippodrome de Paris-Vincennes, which over the years has been as well known for hosting rock concerts as for its main purpose of horse racing, has recently upgraded its production infrastructure. One of the steps taken by the technical department was to replace its old analogue mixing console with a Studer Vista 5 M2 digital console, configured with 32 mic/line inputs, 72 line out and eight AES I/O. This was the first sale of the new console in France… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   It’s not unusual for musicians and engineers that are doing a lot of work in their home studio on bookshelf-sized speakers to crave more bottom end. As a result, the first thing they think about is adding a subwoofer to their monitor system. That’s all well and good, but there are a few steps that you can follow that might help your venture into low frequency territory a lot easier. 1. Do… View this post

    Constructed in rocker Alice Cooper’s former house in 2008, Canyon Hut Recording Studio has recently acquired and installed a fully analog, all-discrete API 1608 console. According to co-owner Tim Hutton, picking the right console was an easy decision once he heard the 1608. “When making the decision to buy a console, I knew it had to feel ‘right’ in my gut,” says Hutton. I tested many and most of them were fairly linear. The 1608 was the only console that… View this post
