    Full Sail University’s flagship recording arts program dates back to the school’s founding over thirty years ago and is currently supported by a massive studio complex. After a comprehensive search and thorough vetting, Full Sail has announced it will replace the existing console in Studio B with a 64-channel API Vision analog surround sound console. “It was important that we provide our students the invaluable experience of working with high-end analog audio,” explained Dana Roun, director of audio arts at… View this post

    Producer and engineer Julian King has worked with a who’s who-list of country legends and rising stars including George Jones, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Sugarland. His engineering on Faith Hill’s crossover sensation Breathe earned King a Grammy, and in total, his work has sold over one hundred million units. Shortly after moving to exclusively in-the-box mixing, King found Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, and he has since used it on almost every single channel of each and every… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   When you think about your studio, what comes to mind? I’ll admit, it’s easy to hone my attention on the things I don’t like about it. Perhaps the fact that a few of my mic stands don’t work very well anymore. Or how I need to stain the wood on my homemade gobo/booth. Or that I don’t have a dedicated monitor switcher box to switch between speakers and sources and quickly… View this post

    Directed by Nick Palmer, Mr. Christmas is a new independent documentary film about Concord, California’s Bruce Mertz, a man who both figuratively and literally brightens his community each December with the 50,000-plus lights decorating his house. Already sweeping up awards at film festivals in Aspen, Philadelphia, Palm Springs and Providence, the short 15-minute documentary features a score composed by Jim Briggs, who tracked all of the instrumentation through a collection of A-Designs Audio processors. Recorded earlier this year in Studio… View this post

    When the highly-respected Recording Arts and Sciences Program at the Peabody Conservatory/John Hopkins University needed to replace an aging console they turned to API. The staff ultimately chose a new sixteen-channel Audio 1608 console because of its authentic sound quality and flexibility. The University program, which awards a double-major Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s of Arts in Audio Sciences is the American equivalent of the European Tonmeister training program. Its students benefit from being in close alliance with the JHU’s… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   One of the tougher things to decide when your doing a project is when the mix is finished. If you have a deadline, the decision is quickly made for you, but if you have a deep pocket budget or unlimited time, a mix can drag on forever. So when is a mix considered finished? Here are some guidelines, courtesy of The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook: 1) The groove of the song is solid.… View this post
