    The rhythm section is the heart and soul of a song as it provides both the pulse and the key center, and that’s why it’s so important to get the correct balance in a mix. It would be nice if everything sounded so good that you didn’t have to add a thing but that’s not usually the case. Here are a few tips taken from both The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook and The Audio Mixing Bootcamp that can help get that… View this post

    Ask any person on the planet to think of a vintage microphone, and the Shure Model 55 is what probably comes to mind. This iconic mic was introduced in 1939, and two models that sport the distinctive box shape are still in the Shure catalog. Pretty good for a design celebrating its 74th year! Not only is the Model 55 one of the best looking mics ever made, it also introduced a breakthrough technology in using just a single dynamic… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   In a microphone shoot-out that I did a few years ago between the Shure SM7B and SM58, I discussed some of the reasons for using a dynamic microphone for lead vocals as opposed to a condenser. One of the main reasons is that dynamics tend to pick up less of the room, so if you have a noisy room or just an acoustically bad-sounding room, a dynamic mic might allow you… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   I’m writing this on a train up to NY. I’ve got K’Naan’s album “Troubador” playing through my headphones right now, and really vibing on the music. But as I often do while listening, even casually, I’m admiring the arrangement of sounds, textures, movement, and tones. Hats off to Manny Marroquin, as these mixes are really incredible. It’s got me meditating on how to “open up” a mix — to allow… View this post

    TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new M82 dynamic cardioid microphone at the upcoming Winter NAMM 2013 in Anaheim (booth 1868).  Following the same design approach as TELEFUNKEN’s other Dynamic Series microphones, the new M82 was created to provide an alternative to familiar kick drum large-diaphragm dynamic microphones.  Hand-assembled and tested in the company facility in Connecticut, the M82 includes a large 35mm diaphragm with superb low frequency capabilities.  The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Reader Hector Gutierrez wrote in with a couple of questions that I’m happy to answer. Here we go: How do you become a producer? You’re a producer when you have a client that trusts you with their music. They have to feel comfortable with you personally first and foremost, but they also need to know that you’ll help them make the right decisions. Work with as many artists as you can in… View this post
