Musician Chris Thile is quoted as saying he'd decided never to record wearing headphones again. I don’t get this. What’s wrong with headphones?
I’m looking for extremely detailed and natural omnidirectional microphones for two-channel small ensemble recordings on location.
I’m about to take on the task of running live backing tracks for Hacienda Classical live shows.
I have two sets of monitors. The first pair are 40 inches apart and the second, outside of these, around 55 inches apart.
I have a Casio PX310 digital piano. When jacks are inserted into the (quarter-inch) line out sockets, the onboard speakers are not muted. They are muted when headphones (or a jack) are inserted...
I’ve read that pro gear should use balanced connections, but I’ve been looking for a mixer recently and find that most have unbalanced insert points. My interface uses balanced I/O, as does most of my outboard gear. What gives?
Can I link the S/PDIF out of my Boss DR-880 to the S/PDIF input of my Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 audio interface and get good results?
My room is not ideally treated, especially in the corners near my monitors, which have no bass traps. Would it help to use monitors with bass ports on the front.
I’m an aspiring electronic musician, and am hoping to create some stuff with real shaking low-end impact, but the interaction between kick and bass still puzzles me.
I have three laptops in the house, all of which produce various sparks and flashes at the mains end when plugged into the wall.
I’ve put a lot of effort into creating and editing a recording of a solo mandolin. Although I like the final result a lot, on reflection the tone seems too trebly and cold.
In the May 2015 Mix Rescue article, Mike Senior talks about how he bounced out a mix any number of times to compare it to his references. I understand the purpose of referencing, but what I don’t understand is why he bounced out the mix.
I’m working on an acoustic track and would like my vocalist to sing backing vocals in a more ‘breathy’ way. Are you able to offer some vocal coaching tips that I can ask him to try?
