Rigid fiberglass is the most cost effective way to acoustically treat a room. Foam only really makes a difference with mid and high frequencies; the panels I made are… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   Most of the time there is an obvious choice. Need more mid-range? Grab an EQ and boost the midrange. Need more control of the source? Volume automation or compression. Easy. But sometimes we face strange challenges — like how to get more bass in the kick without running out of headroom. Or how to make something sound brighter that doesn’t have much harmonic content above 7 kHz except hiss. Well,… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Many who are new to mixing are not aware that there are a number of places that you can build a mix from. There’s a general feeling that starting from the kick drum is the best way, but that’s far from the only starting point available. In this excerpt from The Audio Mixing Bootcamp book, you’ll see that there are many alternative places to successfully start from when building a mix. ——————————————————… View this post
