    Arcade Fire’s album “The Suburbs” was released to critical acclaim before going on to claim the “Album of the Year” title at last weekend’s 2010 GRAMMY Awards. Mark Lawson is the engineer that worked closely with the indie rock band — with its multitude of members and ever changing instrumentation — during the recording of this award-winning album, and Universal Audio hardware was an important player. In addition to managing the chaotic amount of musicians in their sessions for the… View this post

    TASCAM has launched the DR-05, a new portable stereo recorder that is outfitted with pair of condenser microphones with sensitivity up to 125 dB SPL and low noise. The design of the DR-05 is optimized for sound quality, from the dedicated power supply for the codec to bring out the full spec of the A/D and D/A converter to the separate analog & digital circuit boards and low impedance circuit design with noise resistance in its compact case.

    In the midst of talking about mics and mic preamps, the timely subject of mic modeling hardware and software has been raised. So, here’s my take on mic modelers. They may change the sound of the audio that passes through them, but there are major problems that mic modelers can’t get around: namely, the laws of physics and the limits of metallurgy. I’m not alone with these thoughts - a bit later in this article, Norbert Sobol, a noted microphone… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   You may or may not know this, but I’m a big fan of all the drum software programs out there. Steven Slate Drums, BFD, Strike, EZDrummer…the list goes on and on, and they all sound great! You’ve undoubtedly heard EZDrummer if you’ve listened to any of my music. All the drums on my last album were done using EZDrummer and a mouse. I found a MIDI groove that I liked, then… View this post
