The Shuttle offers three insert loops: —Loop-1 is a front-panel insert that employs 1/4-inch TRS connectors for fully balanced connectivity—Insert-2 is an unbalanced insert that is also front panel mounted that easily interfaces to standard effects devices—Insert-3 is available on the Workhorse using the Omniport, which is wired following convention with tip-send, ring-return, making it ideal to interface… View this post

    As a complete oversimplification, a microphone is an instrument which measures differences in air pressure. It is not surprising that somebody would, in light of the interest in Quadraphonic sound, experiment and perfect an instrument which would measure and transduce the differences in air pressure around a full 360 degrees - to effectively create a quadraphonic microphone. Figure 1 (click to enlarge) Such a truly Quadraphonic device, developed by engineer Carl Countryman and producer Brad Miller, is in external appearance… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   A reader is puzzled by stereo (2-mic) acoustic guitar recording: I recently got into mixing acoustic guitar with 2 mics. The problem is that I do not know how to create as much ‘space’ as some tracks I know of. I’ve tried XY, ORTF, and spaced pair. XY and ORTF are too narrow. Spaced pair seems reasonable (following the 3:1 Rule), but the mic pointed closest to the body becomes overly… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   During a long discussion about vintage instruments in the studio this week, it prompted me to think about this excerpt from The Ultimate Guitar Tone Handbook (written with writer, composer and good buddy Rich Tozzoli) that describes some of the intangible factors that went into manufacturing Gibson humbucking pickups in the 50’s and 60’s. As you’ll see, there are a lot of external factors that went into making a pickup back then,… View this post
