However, the acoustic conditions that exist in the average home studio or even small pro studio do not lend themselves to the… View this post

    Studio owner Manolito Galea (Lito) puts the success of Lito’s Place down to the purchase of an Audient ASP4816. He explains that since the arrival of the compact analog mixing console two years ago, the studio’s fortune has been on an upward trajectory. “Investment in the ASP4816 has generated enough business to allow us to grow the studio, both in the film and music industry,” he says. “A number of European composers and producers from the music industry now choose… View this post

    Editor’s note: If you missed the earlier discussion from Bruce, click here. Over the years, I have been very fussy about the volume levels that I use in the control room. I have always tried to observe the American OSHA sound-exposure standards. I like to test my mixes at a variety of volume levels, and on a variety of different speaker systems. This makes sure that the mix will sound good anywhere. If a mix sounds good at a low… View this post
