    I’ve long wondered why a very useful musical feature is not included in all mixing consoles: a digital tuner.

I’ve also routed one effect send bus output to a tuner input as well, so the guitarist can tune up anytime even while his track mix plays… View this post

    As 2013 comes to a close many people will find themselves taking stock of what the year held for them, and perhaps making resolutions to accomplish more of their goals. It’s safe to say, in looking back at the last several months, Grammy award winning producer/mixing engineer Andrew Scheps might be looking forward to taking it a little easy, but probably not. His time is in high demand. Grammy award winning producer/mixing engineer Andrew Scheps is a favorite of many… View this post

    While there are sound principles behind decoupling monitor speakers from the surface on which they are sitting, not everyone has had an opportunity to experience the night-and-day difference in performance between near field monitors with and without isolation. “You really need to hear it,” says Ronan Chris Murphy, who independently reviewed the IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R155 adjustable acoustic isolation speaker stands for his web-based “Ronan’s Recording Show.” “The results were kind of mind-blowing,” reports Murphy in his recent 11-minute video review of… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Sometimes we get caught up in a complex technique simply because we can.

The problem here is that each situation is different.… View this post

    A 50-piece orchestra assembled at Ocean Way’s historic Studio A to record orchestral arrangements of Rihanna’s smash hit “Diamonds” for the first-ever Icon Award presented during the recent American Music Awards broadcast. “Producer Rickey Minor (Tonight Show with Jay Leno) called and asked me to write and conduct the orchestral arrangements over Rihanna’s existing rhythm tracks for her song ‘Diamonds’,” commented 4-time Grammy nominee Chris Walden.  “Our contractor Ernie Fields, Jr. put together a great group of musicians for a… View this post
