    Bobby Owsinski 05/05/15 11:39 AM,
    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Equalization is one of the most difficult parts of recording to get the hang of since there’s literally almost an infinite number of possibilities. Most of us learn by experience and usually massive amounts of trial and error, but there are some brief general guidelines that can be an enormous help for those new to the process. Here’s an excerpt from The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook 3rd Edition featuring five simple EQ tips… View this post

    Hello Old Soundman: Greetings from the shore, where the clams and oysters are fresh but the local celebrity DJ’s gear is not. Then throw it out like you would do with bad seafood! But I guess that would get you in trouble. You probably want to keep your job – it sounds pretty swinging by the ocean. I normally don’t have a problem with visiting DJs when I put them on stage to spin tunes. I set my channel EQ… View this post

    Brad Pitt was at Lito’s Place, working on ADR sessions for his action film, ‘Fury’. Just as actress Cote de Pablo was, for post-production of Antonias Banderas’ forthcoming movie

Lito opened his first studio in Malta back in 1990. “Last year’s refurbishment… View this post

    audio power
    Pat Brown 04/29/15 06:03 AM,
      Trying to characterize amplifiers or loudspeakers only by power ratings is akin to trying to completely characterize a person by a photograph. There is always much more than meets the eye. Few subjects generate more confusion in the audio world than power. There is a very good reason for this—it’s a confusing subject, and one that can easily fool our intuition.
