    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   This video (below) has made the rounds with my Facebook friends (I’m not sure exactly where it started, but thank you to whomever is responsible) and when you give it a watch you’ll know why. It’s a 1965 Frank Sinatra live record date, complete with a full orchestra, of his hit “It Was A Very Good Year.” There’s a lot to like in this video. Check out: —the small size of the… View this post

    While the skies now shine bright over my home state of Indiana, less than a month ago it was particularly harrowing to use Pro Audio equipment in the Midwest. Why? Well, we were constantly plagued with blizzards and freezing rain, which had a fairly devastating effect on the local power grid. Though I never completely lost power this winter, it did often waver intermittently for hours. Thankfully, when I setup my studio, I invested in several Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   This week I had the privilege of interviewing Brent Milligan for my VIP members. He’s a professional producer/musician here in Nashville. Over the course of 45 minutes, Brent said so many things that I thought were just fantastic. I told him we could do a separate interview on EACH of those topics, there was so much good information. Towards the end of the interview, I asked Brent if he had any… View this post

    Supporting the global audience tuned into the world’s premier business technology conference led by SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG, the annual SAP Conference, held in Orlando, Florida, was mixed, monitored and distributed with a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console. Utilizing MADI interface cards with Riedel RockNet connectivity, the Vi6 seamlessly distributed lecture, presentation and address audio throughout three studios and multiple lecture halls. A Soundcraft Vi1 was also utilized as the main mixing board for the Conference’s Keynote Address. Syntonic Design Group,… View this post

    When a child is learning to walk, he is able to do no more than put one foot in front of the other and shift his weight. He learns quickly (after a couple of falls), that he must master these basics before he can advance to running, skipping, or dancing. His thoughts may not be quite so complex as we seem to imply, but the fact remains that for the time, he can only do one thing, and that without… View this post

    “I work too many hours,” laughed Ariel Borujow, chief recording and mix engineer at New York City’s now-famous Stadium Red studios. With fifteen years spent in front of the monitors, Borujow has worked with Kanye West, The Black Eyed Peas, Faith Evans, J-Lo, and countless others. His efforts, coupled with his knack for transforming whatever crosses his path into aural magic, have earned the young engineer multiple platinum albums and a Grammy nomination. Nevertheless, Borujow is hardly content to rest… View this post

    preamps
    Chater-La 08/23/11 04:32 PM, 1 Comment
    This article is provided by Audiofanzine. A pair of audio heads with a studio based outside Tokyo recently contacted me with their first recorded mic preamp comparison tests. I was impressed and happy to have made friends from studio trenches far far away. Let’s take a look at what they came up with. The guys at Studio J conducted their preamp test by recording two songs through the following preamps:—Chandler Limited TG2—Chandler Limited Germanium—Chameleon Labs 7602—Focusrite Red 6—Grace Design 201—Sound… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   The graphic below represents the dilemma of the recording studio business. It’s the legendary Electric Lady Studio’s rate card from 1994 and it’s evidence why so many legendary studios have been turned into condos. If you take notice, a lock-out rate (meaning the studio is purchased for the entire day) ranges from $2,500 to $2,800 a day. Sixteen years later, major studio rates are the same, even less if you get a… View this post

    Avid has announced support for Mac OS X Lion version 10.7 with Pro Tools and Pro Tools HD 9.0.5 BETA software. Full qualification of this new OS is expected at a later time. Avid notes that Pro Tools beta software will contain minor bugs and issues, adding that in most cases, this will not impact usability and performance. As a result, the company recommends that users in “mission critical” applications do not use Lion and Pro Tools 9.0.5, and remain… View this post
