    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s an excerpt from The Music Producer’s Handbook regarding a checklist for overdubs. If you want your overdubs to go fast and easy, follow this list. It works every time. Do you have a list of overdub priorities? Do you know which overdubs absolutely must get done and which ones are less important? A list will keep you on track budget-wise and time-wise. Can you record in the control room? Most players… View this post

    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   The original idea for this article was to write something on getting great vocal production. But as I started formulating the ideas, I realize they kind of apply to music globally. I feel that the basis of great music is fairly simple. Recorded music is a transcription of feelings. Much like how a microphone converts sound waves into electricity, and speakers convert electricity into sound — emotion is converted into… View this post

    Los Angeles, CA-based production sound mixer David Kelson is constantly challenged with the uncontrollable variables that come with his job, including surround noise, digital RF interference and little time for experimentation, which he overcomes with assistance from a range of Lectrosonics wireless products. Having worked in location sound for the TV and film industry since 1982, some of Kelson’s recent projects include The Walking Dead on the AMC network (American Movie Classics) and the TV movie Steel Magnolias, and he… View this post

    Excerpted from the excellent “Make Mine Music” by Bruce Swedien, available from It’s my opinion that after all is said and done, psychoacoustics is really why we are interested in recording music in the first place. Psychoacoustics can be defined simply as the psychological study of hearing. The true aim of psychoacoustic research is to find out how our hearing works. In other words, to discover how sounds entering the ear are processed by the ear and the brain… View this post

    human hearing
    Pat Brown 01/17/13 09:27 AM,
    The human auditory system is equipped with two inputs - left and right ears. This “binaural” processing system provides us with the ability to localize where sound is coming from, something that a one-eared listener would have difficulty in doing. Playback systems may utilize any number of channels to surround the listener with sound, but two channels is always enough to simulate the human listener. Recording enthusiasts have long discovered the benefits of stereo microphones. While not necessarily “human-like,” they… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   After sorting our input lists, stage cabling and custom boxes, the next step to optimizing our stage is not really on the stage at all. For me, the final phase is getting an optimized baseline show file for each position. In this post, we’ll be discussing audio files (in the digital world), but much of the concepts apply to lighting, presentation and video as well. The Baseline Show File When I refer to… View this post
