I need to do some recording of spoken word, using a cheap and cheerful lavalier mic, but it’s noisy — there’s a steady ‘hiss’. Is there some plug-in that can reduce said noise, perhaps by taking a sample of it and then adding it out of phase?
I have a set of Yamaha HS8 monitors and I set them up on my new desk the other day and noticed that the left speaker was way...
I have a very high quality D-A converter that boasts particularly low clock-jitter figures, so I thought it would be an ideal candidate to serve as a master clock — yet it doesn’t have a word-clock output socket!
Why does everyone, pros and all, say that the snare bottom mic is ‘out of phase’, and that its polarity must be reversed? Isn’t it the top mic that should be reversed?
Will the audio quality from an Allen & Heath XB-10 paired with a JK Audio Innkeeper telephone hybrid be better than the Allen & Heath ZED-10, also paired with an Innkeeper?
In a previous article you mentioned the importance of correct phase between satellites and subwoofer. Can you tell me what’s going on when you cannot hear any difference between 0 and 180 degrees?
I’d like to start using the very helpful Schwa Schope multi-analysis plug-in within Cubase Pro 9. If I would like to assess the frequency spectrum of, for example, the kick and bass guitar tracks, how should I set up the routing?
I’d like to get a mic for sound-design work. Specifically, I wish to record quiet sounds, amplify them and mangle them...

I recently bought a Zoom H6 recorder, and am confused how its Mid-Sides recording works. Could you explain?
