    This excerpt provided by Focal Press   It’s all very well offering ideas of how to be creative and how to create creativity, but what happens when things start to go wrong? Wrong in a creative sense, wrong in a technical sense, and wrong in a personnel sense. Artists and musicians can be sensitive and temperamental souls and the close confines of the studio environment coupled with creative energy and egos can tend to magnify issues and heighten any underlying… View this post

    It seems to me that over the course of many years and many technological “advances,” we have once again come to an age-old question: where is the line of acceptability? As recording techniques, and production ethics change as quickly as we receive DAW updates and debug programs, I think we need to pause for a bit of reflection. It is, of course, a well-accepted theory that you can’t properly embrace the future until you understand the past. So, let’s take… View this post

All this is great, however, for those recording in personal studios, chances are the musicians you… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Not everyone can afford professional mastering, and it’s so easy to do it yourself these days thanks to some great and affordable tools. The problem is that these tools are so powerful that it’s really easy to get into trouble and wind up with a product that’s a lot worse than what you started with. The process that causes all the trouble is over-EQing. This is especially true when an engineer is… View this post
