    When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, Derek W. Pardoe’s personal studio located on the Gulf Coast was one of the casualties. He recently completed reconstruction of the space and took delivery of an Audient ASP4816 compact analogue recording console as the centerpiece of the studio. “There are no options in this price range that have this much functionality and quality,” Pardoe explains. “It has the functionality of a large format desk with a smaller footprint and I love it.”  Pardoe… View this post

    “I thought cables didn’t matter, so I tried running my system without them. Huge difference!” —  Posted on a hi-fi audio forum Now that we understand what to measure and how (part 1 and part 2), and know that a null test can prove our measurements valid, let’s use that knowledge to bust some common audio myths. The earliest audio myth I can recall is the benefit of fancy wire for connecting loudspeakers, and it’s still going strong. Some vendors… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s a list I love from Steve Guttenberg, the audio reporter over on the CNET blog. It’s the top 10 reasons why music is compressed today. As you’ll see, there are a lot of things in the list that make sense. With all the talk about hypercompression (over-compression), we tend to forget that people really do like the sound of compression. It’s just when it’s used to excess that engineers and listeners… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   The topic of audio perception has been pretty hot lately. From the popular news media coverage of Mastered for iTunes to the pages of TapeOp magazine, it’s not uncommon for people to be asking the question, “can you really hear the difference?” This is very good news for music and music lovers. That might not seem like an extraordinary question for people to be asking, but the elastic reach of… View this post
