    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Since my recent post on timing delays to the pulse of the track, I received a number of requests about how to do the same with reverbs. Why would you want to time the verb to the track? Because it adds depth without sticking out and makes the mix seem more polished. Here’s what to do to time the decay: Trigger the reverb by adding it to the snare and adjusting the… View this post

    Elite Sound and Lighting of Canberra and the Australian capital’s premier audiovisual production and installation supplier, has a wide variety of clients from dry-hire to rock’n’roll to corporate and conferencing. Consequently whenever the company purchases new equipment, the key element is versatility. “We always spend a lot of time researching products, which is exactly what we did when we recently decided to invest in some compact digital audio consoles,” commented Darren Russell, Elite’s managing director. “We looked at what all… View this post

    This article is provided by Audiofanzine. Part 1 of this article provided a “physical” definition for timbre, stressing its “plural” aspect and discussing the elements which make it up and define it. Above all, there was discussion of the infinite number of possible combinations between these spectral components. We’re going to further this analysis here by focusing on how different types of parameters—such as intensity, duration, and space—influence our perception of timbre. In fact, these variables are not isolated from… View this post

    Frank Morrone’s studio is the high-quality professional recording space you would expect to see used by an award-winning recording mixer for film, television or sound mixing. Designed by Anthony Grimani and tuned by Dolby, the space is equipped with only superior mixing equipment, from a Euphonix control surface and Pro Tools 10 with two HDX cards to AVID I/O and Westlake BBSM6s for 5.1 Dolby mixing. And carrying the low end that Morrone insists is essential to great mixing is… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Recently I posted about the six rules for adding effects to a mix, and three of the rules entailed timing your effects to the track. One of the comments I received asked about more information on just how to do that, so here it is. Timing the effects to the track means that all of the delays and reverb parameters are timed so that they match the tempo of the song so… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   What Do We Mean? One of the most confusing topics in audio is phase. I think part of what makes it confusing is that people use it in reference to more than one issue. What always seems to make things clear for me: figure out precisely which aspect is the concern then focus on the part that matters. It is such an issue that I avoid using the word phase… View this post
