    Designing a loudspeaker system is a lot easier today than it was in the past. It used to be that only a limited number of drivers were available, and there was a lot of trial and error involved in making the boxes. Now we’re blessed with two major improvements. First, we have computers to help us, and programs like BassBox Pro and Hornresp make it easy to design and make changes to the design without ever having to cut a… View this post

      These gold nuggets of mixing/audio production wisdom are insights into doing something small to make a huge impact. My notebook is filled with audio mixing tips and tricks from the Gurus of Tech 2013 conference earlier this year.  That tells you two things; the conference was great, and I still go old school with a paper notebook. If I wasn’t writing down something I thought was useful, I was writing down something I thought you’d find useful. 1. Consider… View this post
