    You’ve finally invested in a high-quality vocal microphone and your voice has never sounded better. Unfortunately, the keyboard player in your band decides he wants to use your mic during his featured rap. You cringe as he practically eats the microphone. You can barely watch as he encourages audience members to scream into the mic. Afterwards he returns your mic, still operational but considerably wetter and unhygienic. Microphones are subject to an inordinate amount of abuse, especially in live music.… View this post

A mono mix is simply one channel. You combine (or sum) the left and right channels into a single channel. Listening to mixes in mono can be very… View this post

    A live echo chamber can be a considerable asset for any recording studio, that is providing that it is a good one. That’s the problem — how do you construct a good echo chamber? When someone builds a chamber, they hope it will turn out great and pray it won’t turn out absolutely dreadful and good for nothing but storing echo plates. The truth is there are a number of complex variables which will make each chamber unique. These factors… View this post
