    Video Production... Microphones

    Hey guys, I was just recently approached by a local production company and got to talking with the owner and found out they really didn't have a "sound engineer" on their team. I got to talking with them and told them I was more than capable of doing anything from voice overs or recording sound...

    question involving file type and quality loss

    I have a good friend who recently recorded a song at home, got good results and a solid mix and sent it off to a person he found for it to be mastered and from what he said for it to be formatted to work with Itunes? It was a "website" mastering company, they never directly met with the person...

Can any of the more seasoned people here comment on the possible effectiveness of a design like this??? Essentially it's a two in one absorber/diffuser panel. Thought it was a kind cool idea, and...

    Taking off the jeans...

    Ok not really!:p But...we were talking about a lot of different types of sound treatment in one of my classes and the uses of rock wool, 703/5, and your other standard acoustic insulation that everybody uses. Somebody spoke up though and said that there was a "denim" insulation that he had...

    Anyone have any experience with these? I have a chance to pick up a matched pair for $450. Just need a little reassurance that these would make a good addition. I've been looking to find something to use as drum overheads, I've just been using sm57s with modest results. From prices new...

    EQ rack question

    I feel like I'll posting in the newbie section for quite a while lol. Too much to learn :o EQ rack equipment...why have it? Because you record through this outboard equipment first correct? It's towards the beginning of your "signal flow" chain. Which means you be "pre-eqing" signals, not...
