The Art Of Listening: Refining A Vital Pro Audio Skillset. How often do you listen to music?
I don’t mean throw some tunes on in the car or play the radio in the background, I mean really listen; the kind of listening where you give the music your full attention, focusing on the qualities of individual sounds and noticing things which are not immediately obvious. That distant layered guitar chord; the faint timbale in the background; the different harmonies of the violins. Is Getting A Good Mix Using Headphones Possible? Sharing The Long Road: The Career Of Claudia Engelhart & Inside Her Unique Partnership With Artist Bill Frisell.
In the age of “one and done,” it seems more common for engineers to work with an artist for a tour and then move on to find new work.
Far less common are engineers staying with the same artist for more than a couple of years/tours, with a three-decade working relationship almost unheard of. Yet such is the case of Claudia Engelhart, who’s worked with noted jazz guitarist, composer and arranger Bill Frisell since 1990. Engelhart started mixing at the age of 18 in San Francisco; at that time in her life, it was both a logical next step and a light bulb turning on. “I grew up in a musical family and played cello for 10 years, starting at age nine,” she explains.
“My father is a jazz musician and instrument builder, and my sisters are musicians. Not So Fast... Mixing And Routing Advantages In The Analog Realm. For years, many have reported the death of analog equipment, especially large-frame consoles, but the truth is that they still see widespread use in shows and events of every type and size.
Sure, sometimes they’re still in place because a venue or sound company has yet to switch to digital, but that doesn’t explain why we see them out on large tours with national acts that have access to anything they want. The simple answer is simple: analog consoles still have a place in the modern world of sound reinforcement. A Minimalist Approach: Effectively Using Just One Effect In The Mix - ProSoundWeb. I like using spatial effects to create interesting moments in the music coming from the stage.
A well-chosen reverb that supports the mood and the message of the musical content is the one “magical component” I’d have the most difficult time giving up if forced to restrict my workflow or gear options. Reverb is also probably also one of the most qualifying distinctions between digital consoles. Getting EQ to translate from one console to the other is usually a much easier task than mimicking a reverb setting from one desk to another. When I have time and the situation allows it, I provide myself with a palette of various spatial colors – drum room, snare plate, long drum verb, vocal plates and halls, tap tempo delays and slapbacks – that are all carefully chosen, equalized, sometimes dynamically processed and with their parameters linked to controlling encoders with meticulous deliberation.
Retro Mixing: Can The 10-Channel Challenge Improve Your Live Mixes? - ProSoundWeb. Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I mix with a very straightforward style, using very few bells and whistles.

Free - The A-Z Of Waves - Interactive eBook Download — Studio One Expert. Under The Bus? Uses & Applications Of Mix Bus Compression In The Live Realm - ProSoundWeb. By Jonah Altrove • October 3, 2017 The topic of mix bus compression – mixing through a compressor on the master output – can stir up a lot of conversation among engineers across many genres (live, recording, broadcast, etc.).
For example, ask studio engineers about bus compression, and five bucks says their responses will include the word “glue.” It’s probably because bus compression acts on the mix as a whole, as opposed to an individual element, so it can create an “everything stuck together” kind of sound.

10 Myths About Normalization - Hometracked. The process of normalization often confuses newcomers to digital audio production.
