    From the March/April 1977 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, the principals of Abadon/Sun Studio, which was located in San Antonio, TX, look at the practical and technical sides of studio design. We at Abadon/Sun decided to write this article because we felt a large number of small studio owners required more information to properly design and build their first studio. What we’ve tried to do is to simplify things as much as possible and provide the… View this post

    The line between live and recording engineers has blurred in recent years with a dramatic increase in recording live shows and events, as well as virtual sound check. Most newer digital consoles and mixers – and even a few analog models – provide some type of onboard recording systems that facilitate at least a basic two-track recording. Several others offer multi-track recording onboard or allow convenient streaming of multi-tracks to a digital audio workstation and/or recorder. With digital networks increasingly… View this post

    Back in 1996, I predicted that the good old analog snake would be gone, soon to be replaced by digital counterparts. But something strange happened…the world did not change. As both a manufacturer of snakes and a distributor to the Canadian market, we sell more analog snakes today than ever before. With that in mind, let’s have a look at analog snakes and their application. There are basically two formats: traditional floor boxes or rack-mount snakes. The floor box is… View this post

    As audio engineers, we’re constantly presented with choices that involve compromise and give and take. Many of these are budgetary and/or based on realities of what’s available or possible for a given application. Tradeoff, TANSTAAFL and triage are underlying principles to my decision-making process in the design and optimization of sound systems. The concept of the tradeoff is simple: give up something to get something. TANSTAAFL is an acronym created by sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein: “There ain’t no such thing… View this post

    SynAudCon Digital, an educational seminar providing a comprehensive introduction to digital audio, digital signal processing and IP networks, will be held in Washington D.C. on November 16-18, 2015. The three-day seminar presents the essential theory of networks and provides students with the opportunity to put theory into practice. Hands-on exercises includes students learning how to build and troubleshoot computer networks. The theory and practices learned apply to all computer networks, not just one protocol. “It is a challenge to keep… View this post

    James Stoffo 09/30/15 12:09 PM,
    Over the past several years, entertainment production wireless system users in the U.S. have seen the energizing of digital television (DTV) and the 700 MHz band re-allocation, all the while preparing for the mass introduction of white space devices – which is now just around the corner along with the 2016 commencement of the 600 MHz incentive auction. What does this all mean? It’s the reshaping of all entertainment production wireless operations in the U.S. The result of the auction… 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 Church   Through my trips with a traveling music ministry, I’ve worked in many different churches across the country. That has given me the opportunity to work closely with many music pastors, church sound staff members and volunteers, and I have one pet peeve about those individuals—they are often exceedingly ignorant of the equipment they work with every week. Hello!!! My questions about simple things like “what console do you have, how many mic… View this post

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Recording vocals can be extremely tricky even under the most perfect of circumstances. However, as we well know, the perfect circumstances aren’t encountered by everyone from day to day. So here are a few tips to keep in mind when you’re tackling that next vocal session. Try Isolation Many studios don’t have a dedicated vocal booth, or simply don’t have the space for one. The next best thing is some acoustic… View this post
