    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Nothing has more effect on the sound of your recordings than microphone technique. For example, which mic you choose—and where you place it—affect the recorded tone quality. That is, mic technique affects how much bass, midrange, and treble you hear in the monitored sound of a musical instrument. Mic choice and placement also affect how distant the instrument sounds in the recording, and how much background noise you pick up. This guide… View this post

    Out Post Sound has been working closely with the team behind the Batman Live World Tour to create fully synchronized dubbed version of the show for foreign language audiences. Ros Cranmer, General Manager for the production said: “Having never even seen a live theatrical performance dubbed into another language, I was nervous about how it would work for our arena production of Batman Live.  The final result, however, was fantastic, and it became clear that a foreign language voice-over actually… View this post

    Royer Labs has introduced the Sling-Shock microphone shock mount, designed to provide excellent isolation between a microphone and mic stand from a maintenance-free design. Sling-Shock offers a unique suspension system that reduces induced distortion by eliminating unwanted vibration and random low-frequency disturbances commonly characterized as “rumble.” Sling-Shock is designed to work indefinitely with no loss of performance or function, requiring nothing more than minimal adjustment. It utilizes a two-part mechanism consisting of non-resonant nylon cord and damped tensioning springs that… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   About a year ago one of my publishers, Hal Leonard, asked me if I’d be interested in doing a phone app. If I was going to do one, I wanted it to be something that I would use myself, all the time, so I came up with the Delay Genie. The Delay Genie basically replaces those time delay charts that most studios used to have so you could easily set the reverb… View this post

    In an exclusive interview with CE Pro, Alan Parsons, renowned sound engineer for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and for the Beatles, says hi-fi pros focus too much on equipment and brand names, when they should put more energy into room acoustics. He also says some surround-sound systems from Costco and Walmart “really aren’t that bad.” All this from the audio wizard behind Dark Side of the Moon, and the name sake of the Alan Parson’s Project? Parsons… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Once upon a time, Joe made a stupid mistake. I was recording a bunch of acoustic guitar tracks for an album project. I was super-excited. I had set aside an entire afternoon to knock out all the songs. Also, I had just gotten a brand new microphone, and was going to use it along with another mic to record the guitar in stereo. All was right with the world. I set… View this post
