    BOSS is now shipping the MICRO BR BR-80 Digital Recorder, an updated and improved version of its popular MICRO BR multitrack recorder. The first MICRO BR, launched in 2006, was a big hit among musicians, offering pro-quality multitracking in a handheld device only slightly larger than an iPod™. With an eight-track upgrade, the latest BOSS guitar and vocal effects, built-in rhythms, onboard stereo mics, fun jamming and practice features directly inherited from BOSS’ eBand® JS-8, and a Live Record mode… View this post

    You may be shocked to learn this, but there actually are DAW’s other than Pro Tools. You’re stunned, right? I just knew you would be. All kidding aside, I tend to do most of my work in Pro Tools, mainly because I just like the program better than the other options. However, I do have occasion to mix in other DAW’s from time to time depending on the needs of clients. For instance, the other day I was mixing across… View this post

    A discussion that began in the “Whatever Works” REP Recording Forum here on ProSoundWeb that’s packed with relevant/useful points and references. Question posed by Andy I’m a student and going to be taking on some mixing projects for self development, and am wondering how much time you set aside to mix/re-mix a track you’ve never heard before? Reply by compasspnt Good question. It’s totally relative. I’ve literally spent anywhere from an hour to a month mixing one song. But in… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I’ve been asked by a few people how I would go about getting a bass sound, since I mentioned that I’d approach things differently from the way Yossi Fine did in my Getting A Bass Sound In The Box post. Actually, the sound of the bass isn’t as important as the relationship it has with the kick and snare drums, since they all reinforce one another if blended correctly. Here’s my approach,… View this post

    This exclusive article is provided by AudioFanzine. Also see “EQ And Compression For Vocals & Acoustic Guitar.” Despite the preponderance of exceptional drum samples and loops on the market, for certain genres of music (notably country and rock) there is no substitute for a great session drummer playing on a well-recorded and mixed drum kit. One thing that samples and loops can’t provide is the great rhythmic instincts an accomplished live player draws upon when responding to a specific song.… View this post
