Now I’m offering recording and mixing lessons. With today’s technology one can actually get decent recording gear for a lot less and you can do more, but one thing that you can’t buy in the music store is knowledge, I’m offering a hands on comprehensive course on recording and mixing, we will be covering signal flow, mike placement, eq, compression, limiting, panning and more, to make sure that you get all your questions answered the maximum amount of students will be five, I also offer group lessons, for more information on my course you can call me.
I also offer gift certificates, this can make a great Christmas present.
I have been a musician/producer/recording engineer for over 30 years.
Got a pair of Focal powered monitors, I had a pair of KS powered monitors and out of nowhere for no reason the transformer fell on top of the circuit board and shorted everything inside, I called the company and It was a total disappointment, no customer service what so ever so I’m done with that company, no good reviews from me, my new Focal monitors sound awesome and they have a great reputation in the industry.
Hi bloggers, the holidays are gone so now it’s time to first, loose the weight (turkey, stuffing, rum cake, fruit cake, eggnog etc….. and put the pedal to the metal to make this year be a very productive year.
I stumbled with something very curious and it is a concept that is wrong and knowing me I can’t be PC or give in to ignorance, my problem is that now the RAPPERS call a small sound bite that has a BASS, KEYS, DRUMS…etc… a beat…. no!!!!!!! a beat are ONLY percussive instruments like for example drums playing a beat and not the rest of the instruments, when all the instruments are being played it’s called an instrumental piece, but not a beat for example I get a loop of a drummer playing funk I call It a funk beat because It’s a beat.
After all being said I still love all my clients and will help them so that their music sounds the best it can sound.
Yes Merry Christmas , I am not politically correct, Christmas is a beautiful holiday that we Christians celebrate in this great country of ours and now more than ever i say it loudly and clear , not only because I’m a christian but it is also an American tradition, we love our Christmas tree, our Frosty the snow man our nativity scene, our ginger bread cookies, our beautiful Christmas carols …. It’s our Christmas season in which we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, I have so many Jewish friends who love Christmas and they don’t mind It so If anyone tells you that wishing someone a merry Christmas is not being inclusive…. reject that argument …..
Hi, This is David again, welcome to my blog, lately I was thinking on posting my songs on line and I’m not sure if I should ad a page to BIGSOUND PRODUCTIONS ATL or just make another website only for original songs with the sole purpose of showcasing them, it will be done soon enough, just wanted to share that piece of information with you.
This week I recorded this rock band and It was great!! we recorded several guitar tracks and used different amps , an old Marshall, a Fender deluxe amp using several mics (Ribbon and cardioid mics) different guitars Acoustic and electric, It was so much fun! for the last 4 months I have been recording edm, hip hop, rap and pop, mostly computer or keyboard generated sounds, loops and effects etc… so this week was great I got to actually record live instruments, back in the 90’s l used to record 3 bands a week, it was the normal thing, like I said… things change.
My monitor speakers were getting old and I needed to get more accurate speaker monitors, I spent weeks shopping, reading reviews on the best studio monitors I was ready to purchase I had to decide between a pair of Genelec (8 inch), Focal, and A pair of 8 inch Event (the opal series) and then I went to this recording studio and I heard a pair of KS studio Monitors, not to be confused with Kurzweil.
After I heard them over and over all bets were off, these are the most transparent studio monitors that I have ever heard, later on I found out that they are made in Germany , you can’t find them at the regular Pro audio store but I had to have them so I when ahead and ordered a pair I must admit that they are pricey but my mixes are going to sound awesome, I now can notice things that i wasn’t able to hear before, sounds that got buried in the mix, I’m a happy camper.
Also I upgraded my patch bay I got two Redco TT 96 patch bays with DB25 connectors and also got an SPL Monitor talkback controller, couldn’t be happier.
I am very excited with my new upgraded recording studio. My old studio was PC based. I had Cubase 6 and the IO was RME ﬁreface 800, a nice control room and a nice recording room. My ﬂagship microphone was a Rode Classic mic and a Vintage Sony C37P. I had EV microphones for the drum kit. Senheizer microphones, AKG, Shure etc…
Then I had the good fortune to land a couple of big production projects and decided that this was my chance to upgrade the studio. With my old studio I could only record 8 tracks at once so I had to change that also many times. I had clients that requested speciﬁcally Pro tools and my main software was Cubase. After giving It a lot of thought I decided to ﬁrst replace my PC for an 8 processor Apple Mac pro computer with a retina cinema 27 inch Monitor. Then I also purchased pro tools 10, I had to make up my mind on what IO I wanted so I decided to get an Apogee Symphony 64, which Is as good as HD. (My opinion? I think it’s better, It’s warmer) I got 2, 8 channel ones (a total of 16) so I can now record 16 tracks at once)and I have 250 virtual tracks.
Next I wanted to improve my microphone arsenal so I purchased a MIKTEK tube microphone CV4 model (made in Nashville) and 2 MIKTEK matched pair C5’s (for overheads) Then I decided that I needed a super mic to record guitars and the answer was a Royer 121 ribbon mic. I also got a Neumann TLM 103, added more mic pre amps and got a Universal Audio 4 710D (4 mic pre in one and each has a compressor and It can be tube or fet, you can dial more of the tube or more of the fet) so the studio has 4 NPNG mic pre’s 4 UA mic pre and 1 UA LA 610 , and I had everything hardwired to a patch bay. My mixing board is an Onyx 1640 and I use the same Tanoys PBM 6.5, Update, on my next post I talk about my new monitors, they are outstanding!
So finally after all this work everything is finished and the brand new studio is ready! And we are ready to deliver incredible quality for a very modest price.
