    THIS applies to EVERYONE

    And maybe you've seen it before. But I read a lot of posts (not just here) that have issues with "flat" sounding mixes. This is just an "intro" video to a much deeper concept - and this is why studios put so much effort into their space - and this is why mic'ing everything from a foot away...

    EMI / EMF / RFI radiation problems...? Wasn't expecting this...

    Didn't really know where to post this so I figured this was the best place. So I'd imagine most here know that I'm a mastering guy. I'm also a long-time radio enthusiast with various band licenses going all the way back to the 11m Citizen's Band back when you needed a license for that band...

    Raw tracks for mixing practice.

    I'm sure it's been posted somewhere before, but: Multitracks - TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik Some months back, I had to put together a "mixing boot camp" for a crew of theatre technicians. Stumbled across this source of raw tracks. As someone who has worked on several recordings done at...

    A favor of sorts -- Need a recorded drum-check.

    Long story, but I have to do a "basics course" of sorts for a small cadre of theatre technicians. I have a decent selection of multi-track stuff to work with (which I'll have to abbreviate due to only having 8 outputs at my disposal). What I don't have - and which is rather crucial in most...

    More FRAUD, featuring MY GEAR LIST...

    I'm getting sooo tired of this... And I hate using the forums as a soap-box, but this one's worth it... "Shed Studio Mastering" - He doesn't even have a real site - One of those free-host sites. But strangely enough my *exact* gear list (except instead of just having a UAD Fairchild, he...

    For the "I only have crappy gear" crowd...

    I'm putting this one on a few forums, as I think it's something that really needs to be addressed. It was inspired by an MP3 I heard on an audio forum - A track by a guy with crappy, outdated 16-bit digital gear with old converters and cheap microphones - but really good core sounds. A nice...

    FS: Orban 642B Parametric EQ / Notch filter (black face model)

    As much as it pains me to do so, I've decided that it's time to wish my Orban 642B good-bye. I thought I'd toss it up here first before it goes to e-bay... This is the black-face model (a.k.a. "the nice one") with the mega-quiet op-amps and factory balanced I/O. Very musical, recently...
