    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   While all modulation effects certainly don’t sound the same, not many engineers know the difference between them. Here’s an excerpt from The Audio Mixing Bootcamp book that takes a look at the differences. Modulation refers to an external signal that varies the sound of an instrument or vocal in volume, timing or pitch. This includes effects like chorus, flanging and phasing, which are pretty standard mixing tools, to tremolo and vibrato, which… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Suppose you’re listening to the house sound system reproducing a play or musical. Some of the actors’ voices sound “puffy” or “muffled,” as if they were covered in a blanket. Other actors might sound “spitty” or overly sibilant.   Fortunately, those problems can be fixed with the equalization knobs (EQ) in your mixing console. EQ adjusts the bass, treble, and midrange of a sound by turning up or down certain frequency ranges.… View this post

    PSW Staff 01/08/14 02:11 PM,
    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I just got Pro Tools for Christmas and I’m working on setting up a home studio. I’m trying to make sure I have all the power and stuff hooked up correctly. Can I run both a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and an AC power conditioner/surge suppressor, or should I only use one? A: The answer to this one is a bit surprising. If you’re using a UPS to power equipment in your studio, you may… View this post

    stereo delay
    Joe Gilder 01/07/14 02:12 PM,
    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Here’s a straightforward technique to get a quality stereo delay sound within about 30 seconds. The technique Joe’s demonstrating here can work with a variety of DAW plug-ins. (He’s using Groove Delay.) Essentially, you want any type of delay that provides multiple taps, and you’re going to use two of them. In the video, Joe provides examples and quickly builds a sample, and he also addresses related aspects of the technique. Give it… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Vital…Propel…Next Level…Can four production tips actually make THAT MUCH of a difference? Yes, they can!  The sad part is a good number of people aren’t using these tips and their sound is suffering.  Answer this question; when does your mixing work begin? Before you answer, I’ll give you three choices:; once you enter the sound booth, once you enter the sanctuary, or once you get the song list?  The problem is… View this post

  • wavelengths
    Ken DeLoria 01/07/14 11:37 AM,
    Most sound practitioners know that low-frequency wavelengths are much longer than high-frequency wavelengths. But because we can’t see them, to what level do we really understand them? This is an important subject because understanding the nature of wavelengths can aid in optimally setting up and operating the various types of sound systems that most of us come in contact with. Let’s look at the physical differential between low frequencies and high frequencies. They are quite radical, in the sense that… View this post

    As with many types of cable, you can save some money by purchasing Ethernet cable and connectors and assembling/terminating them yourself. Of course, keep in mind that putting together cables of any type requires time, patience and some know-how. Without these essential ingredients, you’ll be much better served by buying pre-terminated cables. That said, let’s get started. First, to attach any Ethernet RJ-45 connector ends to the lengths of cable, you’ll need an RJ-45 crimping tool. Start with a good… View this post

    hearing protection
    David Scheirman 01/02/14 03:04 PM,
    Chances are you make at least part of your living with your ears. Stop and think about it. Could you perform your job as well…would your income level be the same…would your professional reputation be intact if you suffer severe hearing loss? Both musicians and the live sound technicians who work with them need to be able to hear things. Not just hear them well, but hear them better than the average person. This should make us stop and consider… View this post

    “I’m going to equalize the room.” We’ve all heard that statement so many times that we scarcely think about what it literally means. We know that in practical terms it means adjusting an equalizer to suit your taste. It may be done with the latest high-technology analysis equipment, voodoo magic or simply tweaking away “until it sounds right.” In any case, are we really “equalizing the room”? What exactly are we doing? There are lots of disagreements on this topic… View this post

    digital audio
    John Murray 12/23/13 12:54 AM,
    More and more these days, audio systems are going digital, not just digital signal processing (DSP), but also for general signal transmission between devices as well. Let’s take a look at the care and feeding of Ethernet cabling, specifically the multiple twisted pair stuff we call CAT-5 and CAT-6. General signal cabling has been organized into categories which we refer to as CAT-X cables. All are available using either solid or stranded conductors. Their designations, according to ElA/TIA-568-B standards are… View this post
